Yet again Winnileaks has obtained an email sent by a board member at Southern Gold which indicates strongly that a deal with Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) allowing the Standard listed company – where I am a loyal shareholder – to buy the Gubong and Kochang mines has now been agreed. These Aussies are leakier than the leakiest of sieves.
Last night Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), pro tem, partner in Korea, Aussies Southern Gold spilled the beans on how the buyout talks on Kochang and Gubong are going. I suggest that you should buy Bluebird shares first thing and that Bluebird needs to issue an RNS ASAP.
This is jolly good news for we long-suffering but loyal shareholders in Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV). I have been shown an email from a senior executive at Aussie based Southern Gold.
Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) has published a further “Operational” update which includes that still its joint venture buyout settlement discussions are “ongoing”. So why a near 10% share price increase on the back of the announcement?
A “Further re Joint Venture Update” announcement from Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) isn’t the resolution of its South Korea gold projects position with Southern Gold (ASX:SAU) – and the shares, albeit still up from a 2.5p offer price recommendation, are currently 7% lower in response at 3.9p. So what’s happening here now?
Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) has emphasised “an exciting time for current and new shareholders” with an appointed Independent Expert now having determined a valuation for the company to acquire the other 50% of its South Korea gold projects joint venture, but the shares are currently a bit lower in response to 4.8p to buy...
Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) has updated investors on the Gubong and Kochang gold mines in South Korea buy out deal. Specifically it informs us of an agreement “to the request of the Independent Expert to extend the period” of valuation determination...
Another day and another sign arrives suggesting that BlueBird Merchant Ventures (BMV) is heading for great things. There are three pieces of news.
Shares in Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) have raced ahead to 5.35p (well up on our 2.5p offer share tip) but there is every reason to hang on for even bigger gains. The latest news is very exciting indeed for we loyal shareholders...
Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) has updated its shrewd investors with news, including that “it is expected that an Independent Expert will shortly be nominated under the terms of the Joint Venture Agreements with Southern Gold. The Independent Expert will make a value determination within 30 days of being appointed” and also “with regards to its gold project in the Philippines that has remained dormant since mid 2016”...
This is very good news. We are now just 30 days from Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) being the owner of not 50% but 100% of two, close to production, Korean gold mines which ultimately can produce at 100,000 oz a year but can be up to 30,000 oz really very quickly. A market cap of below £18 million patently fails to discount this...
I have shares in Bluebird (BMV) and think that at 4.25p they are cheap. They should, IMHO, be trading at 6p and might get into double figures if it can resolve issues with its Aussie, soon to be ex, partners in Korea. But a 34.79p target price, a 69p DCF valuation, is insane as I explained in detail in bearcast yesterday HERE. But that is the target price of Align Research, which owns almost 4% of the shares, and its boss Richard Jennings wants to defend that viewpoint and being a fair man I allow him to do so.
Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) has announced that its JV partner in South Korea is pulling out. But this is a blessing in disguise. We are told...
Previously updating on Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) we’ve noted confidence that funding to take it to gold production would be concluded… and now an update including that the company “is pleased to report that the South Korean company has successfully completed its due diligence and has advanced to the point at which financing terms will be confirmed shortly”...
A further Funding Update announcement from gold project developer in South Korea, Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) – and the shares further higher to 3.8p…
I am a big fan of Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV). I expect it to secure loan funding to ensure opening of its first gold mine very soon and that folks will then realise that this is perhaps the cheapest London listed gold play. I really could see its shares trebling from the current 2.45p mid. But there is one problem, its non executive chairman Jonathan Morley-Kirk simply has to be fired, not only from Bluebird but from Big Dish Ventures (DISH) as well. I have written to senior director Aidan Bishop.
Previously updating on Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) we noted with the shares around 2p that, considering the gold production opportunity, the funding requirement is modest. Now “the Korean focused gold development group, is pleased to announce a funding update and a statement with regard to the Covid-19 pandemic”…
Shortly before Christmas an early present: Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) “is pleased to announce that it has now officially received a 'Permit to Develop' the Kochang mine”… This must surely kickstart a big re-rate.
Towards the end of September, we updated on Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) Gubong permit formal communication progress & Kochang set to follow. Now we have a “Gubong Permit Received” announcement… This makes the shares look very cheap indeed.

Before you consider the latest news from Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) just consider that, at 2.8p-3p, the market cap is a paltry £5.36 million. Bluebird has more than one asset but focus on just one for now: Kochang, where it has now formalised a 50/50 JV with Aussie based Southern Gold.
Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) has announced further results from underground channel sampling at Kochang on in-situ ore left behind by the original miners – including emphasising “the samples show positive indications of high average gold and silver grades” and “orogenic deposits typically extend over 1 kilometre in depth and Kochang has only been developed to a depth of 150 metres”…

We own shares in Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) and have done since its IPO. It has been a bumpy ride but things are now going very much the right way and at c3p they are very cheap. Here is Charles Barclay to explain why.
Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) has updated on ongoing progress at the Gubong and Kochang gold/silver projects – featuring water treatment and metallurgical test work for the former and assays for the latter…
In tandem to completion of the required farm-in expenditure of $500,000 at the Gubong mine, Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) has announced signing of the joint venture agreement.
Okay, Bluebird (BMV) is a corporate client of broker SP Angel so take this report with a pinch of salt but analyst John Meyer is no fool - although he sometimes lacks a sense of humour. And the 24 page report is very detailed. And of course we own the shares and I do think they are cheap at 3.8p although I'm not sure that i am as optimistic as Meyer. Anyhow, he is the expert and writes:
Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), has served up more good news from the land of the dog eaters, that is to say South Korea.
Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) has updated including “there is little doubt that the programme for Kochang has been accelerated in the past week and that the potential to complete the transition to a Joint Venture could be completed within the next six months resulting in a decision to move into construction of the mine. This also allows the company to expand its programme on the far larger project at Gubong which still has the potential for a company maker”.
Bluebird (BMV) really is on a roll in the land of the dog eaters, now announcing that it has signed a deal to develop and reopen a second gold and silver mine. The deal is that once Bluebird has spent $500,000 it can a 50% stake in the Kochang mine currently owned 100% by Southern Gold Ltd. There are some preconditions like South completing a A$250,000 placing but assuming the deal goes ahead it looks interesting...
Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) has announced results of 'grab samples' after engineers gained entry into the old workings at Adit 4 and from spillage in Decline Shaft 2 at the Gubong gold mine - the results “indicating that a significant amount of gold remains unmined at Gubong”...
Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) has updated emphasising “CEO, Colin Patterson, has committed to personally fund the Gubong project through to completion of the Report on Feasibility to re-open the Gubong mine”, “‘soft loans’ of USD 500,000 made to the company by management and key associates have been extended” and “assay results from underground and surface sampling are expected in early January”…
I thought I would give Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) a couple of weeks’ grace to come clean before getting stuck into what I perceived to be a classic piece of BS in its recent RNS relating to the delay in getting its results out leading to a “temporary” suspension. Time's up.
Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) has announced that work is now underway to open up three entrances to the mine at Gubong in South Korea. The target entrances were found using Ground Penetrating Radar, chatting to the locals and from historical information on what was once the country's second biggest gold mine.
*Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) is a former unsuccessful share tip of ours – though our 3.5p July sell advice has proven correct, with the shares presently at a 2.5p offer price. However, there is now a new CEO and a new focus which leaves the shares materially undervalued at the current sub £5 million market cap and we are expecting more news soon...
In this video from the storming success that was the 2017 UK Investor Show, Charles Barclay, COO of Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), is at the podium. And make sure that you keep April 21 2018 free for next year's UK Investor Show.
This week’s strategy update from Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) reminded me that I meant to go searching for its interims as it had done that really annoying thing that rubbish companies do in not actually putting the interims in the RNS, but merely putting a link to the website and then it isn’t actually on the website till later. Having finally tracked them down, I now realise why the company wanted to hide them away as they make horrific reading.
Earlier last week there was cracking news on the Batangas gold mine which - on its own justifies a multiple of the current share price. But now we have confirmation that Bluebird's (BMV) copper concentrate trading operation has banked its first cheque. More will flow and quickly.
We have had nothing but good news from Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) since its IPO yet the shares have fallen. But we know why and we tell you now you must buy.
We now have evidence that some of those who invested in Bluebird (BMV) at the IPO are ignoring lock-ins. That is seeing the shares slip when they should be racing on more good news. We expect this matter to be resolved very shortly indeed and the re-rate to then start and to be dramatic. That makes the shares a buy now.
BlueBird Merchant Ventures (BMV) is a stock that has not flourished since gaining a Standard Listing on the LSE on April 20th. Listed at 5.75p the shares now trade at 3.5p - 4p but that makes them look very cheap. They could double from here, easily.
No offence intended but I would rather that Aidan Bishop who is the man behind Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) had presented at UK Investor Show not Clive Sinclair-Poulton. Aidan is a class act and next year I hope he is around. We own these shares and are excited aboout what will happen. Enjoy
I really hate backing IPOs. Many companies just struggle to adjust to life as a public company, it is like those cricketers who are great at proper cricket but just can't make the adjustment to the pyjama game. Whatever. We have had a small exposure (well not that small actually) today in Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) - Bluebird Mining as was - which is the first mining stock to make it to the London market in eight months.
