Die AISC Kosten liegen bei nur 858 Aud!! Also pro Unze eine Gewinnmarge von fast 800 Aud! Sehr sehr beeindruckend. Und eine fette Dividende (Zwischendivi) gibts obendrauf. Die zweite Dividende gibts dann später. Bei einem Kurs von 4,09 Aud beträgt die Dividende an die 4 Prozent. Und das bei einem Goldproduzenten. Wohl einmalig !?
