Focus on strategic alternatives …

Posted in Uncategorized by atwgold on June 10, 2010


Its been a horrific ride for mightily fleeced public types but Burnakura is an ATW Gold memory now and that is irrespective of the many, many millions of dollars that have gone up in smoke.



ATW Gold sells Burnakura gold property to Jinka
2010-06-10 09:18 ET – News Release
Mr. Brent Butler reports


ATW COMPLETES SALE OF BURNAKURA ASSETS FOR AUD$5,000,000

ATW Gold Corp. has completed the sale of its Burnakura gold project to Jinka Minerals Ltd., an Australian company.

A total of $5-million (Australian) was paid for the Burnakura project: a closing payment of $4,253,000 (Australian) (of which a $212,650 (Australian) deposit has already been received) and a payment by Jinka of $747,000 (Australian) to the Department of Mines in Western Australia, which payment will result in the return of $747,000 (Australian) of environmental bond funds to ATW’s Australian subsidiary.

The required Australian regulatory approvals have been received.

Concurrent with closing the sale of its Burnakura project, the company also settled its outstanding liability of $2-million (Australian) with RUC Cementation Mining Contractors Pty. Ltd. (formerly RUC Mining Contractors Pty. Ltd.). The settlement was first disclosed in Stockwatch on April 12, 2010.

Under the terms of the settlement, the company paid RUC a total of $1.5-million (Australian) andd issued to RUC a total of two million common shares at a deemed price of 25 Australian cents per share. The shares were issued on June 1, 2010, and are subject to a four-month hold period under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The terms of the settlement also called for the parties to execute full and final mutual releases. The releases have been signed.

The sale of the Burnakura project has allowed the company to retire all current liabilities relating to Burnakura with excess financing to be applied toward working capital. The company continues to consider all options as they relate to its Gullewa copper-gold project.

Brent Butler, chief executive officer and president, commented: “The sale of Burnakura will allow ATW to focus on strategic alternatives as they relate to Gullewa. Given the continued strength in the underlying commodity prices, ATW is considering all alternatives, including advancing the project ourselves, the sale, spinout or joint venture of the company’s Gullewa copper-gold project.”

$ 1.5 million US owing on Burnakura

Posted in Uncategorized by atwgold on April 13, 2010

There simply aren’t any suitable adjectives left, nor nouns either, after the latest ATW Gold annoucement. Stakeholders may have been overjoyed to hear that Jinka Resources somehow managed to come up with a $ 212,000 deposit but brutalization on buttock quickly followed with news that yet another $ 1.5 million US was due and payable along with, who bloody cares at this point anyways, 2 million more shares from treasury.

Promises of massive proceeds towards working capital mere days ago have petered out somewhere. A mystery almost as deep and wide as what this public Company supposably “does”.

ATW Gold receives deposit for Burnakura sale

2010-04-12 15:48 ET – News Release

Mr. Brent Butler reports

ATW RECEIVES NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT FOR SALE OF BURANKURA

ATW Gold Corp., further to its news release in Stockwatch of April 1, 2010, has received the non-refundable deposit of $212,650 (Australian) from Jinka Minerals Ltd. as per the letter of intent (LOI) for the sale consideration of $4,253,000 (Australian) for the acquisition of the Burnakura mine project.

The company has entered into a shares-for-debt settlement with RUC Mining Contractors Pty. Ltd. The company, prior to the settlement, owed RUC a total of $2-million (Australian), which was due to be paid on June 30, 2010. The debt was incurred by the company’s Australian subsidiary in connection with RUC’s maintenance services contract for the Burnakura mine project and the mill associated with it. Under the terms of the settlement, the company is to pay RUC a total of $1.5-million (Australian) and issue to RUC a total of two million common shares at a deemed price of 25 Australian cents per share. The payment of $1.5-million (U.S.) and the issuance of the two million common shares are due to occur upon the company selling its Burnakura mine project.

The settlement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The LOI and the sale of the Burnakura project therein is conditional upon receipt of any required Australian regulatory approval, the receipt by the company of any required Canadian approvals (including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, if required), Jinka completing due diligence to its satisfaction, the company and Jinka agreeing to the list of plant and equipment included in the sale, and the execution of a definitive agreement on or before May 31, 2010.

Twisted Sisters Selling – The Beat Goes On

Massive infusion of insider bullishness on ATW prospects lasts just long enough to book a near two bagger and the Hairless Arsering team continue whacking innocent bids without concern to when … even if its the day of a news release.  Boyz are content with the returns from their recently acquired $ .085 ex-creditor Red Kite paper.   This is in stark contrast to the returns being experienced by Earnesto Echavarria, who has seen his $ 8.5 million investment reduced to something less than $ 2.0 million, assuming he could find a buyer/sucker that is.

Just when you think it can’t possibly get any more insulting or audacious, and the grotesque indictments against a regulator that doesn’t seem interested in enforcing the rules can’t get any worse, and the VSE detritus pulls another dirty rabbit out of the bag. Its become a sickening circus sideshow with a conclusion that isn’t in doubt.

Value Creation the ATW Gold Way

Posted in Uncategorized by atwgold on April 2, 2010

April 1, 2010 – ATW 0.16 -0.015 – 669,575

The long awaited and long delayed ATW value enhancement strategy has hit the fan with prejudicial gusto and fittingly enough on April Fools’ Day.

The market was not impressed by the gruesome twosome’s efforts at value creation with the paper closing at $ .16. Begging the question why the public would buy this equity at any level, stakeholders have witnessed many millions evaporate in the name of Burnakura and this at exactly the same time management was spewing about producing 3,500 ozs gold per month from the property.

Dead Cat Bouncing

Many millions of shares “changing hands” the past few days with gruesome twosome somehow nailing the rock bottom absolute low.

The dopey VSE question remains … what happened to the “value enhancement strategy” and what are the gruesome twosome gonna pull outta their audacious arses for an encore? Whatever gets tried next one can count on two sickening constants. Its going to cost existing equity and enrich management.

It appears Mr. Harris is doing his trading “anonymously” if his trades on January 21 are any indicator. (i.e. no brokerage house number) While there is nothing patently illegal or improper about this, its always a red flag when insiders feel compelled to do their sales “under the radar”.
