Kazera (KZG) stock rises due to diamond and tantalum update

AIM-listed Kazera Global, an investor in the resources sector, saw it stock price jump 17% to 1.2p in early morning trading before dropping back to 1p mid-morning.

The initial stock rise owed much to a positive update on Kazera’s diamond and tantalum mines.

The company said diamond production for the current production cycle, which ends in January, was already more than 750 carats, with a target of 1,000 carats for the entire cycle.

Kazera said that in addition to this, the Tantalite Valley mine was now in the final phase of testing, with tantalum production on schedule to commence straight away.

The board conceded that the past year had been a difficult one operationally due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and there had been difficulties getting diamond gravels mined and processed. Despite this, the company said that it had succeeded in getting the processing plant fully operational and had started processing diamond gravels in accordance with its original business plan.

Reinvestment of cash

With production up, Kazera expects to be significantly cash flow positive during 2022, which could enable money to be reinvested into resource definition and mining across the business.

Commenting on the latest figures, Dennis Edmonds, Kazera's CEO, said:

"With minimal cash we have succeeded in getting both our diamond and tantalum operations into commercial production. We look forward with increased confidence to building upon that foundation in 2022.”

He added: "Apart from the material growth of revenues, we see major upsides from proving up further resources at Tantalite Valley and developing our lithium resources - a commodity in extremely high demand as the global economy continues its transition to Net Zero and increased electrification.”

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
