McCombie | Monday, 16th November, 2020 | More on: SMT ULVR There are two types of FTSE 100 companies in particular whose stocks I am happy to buy and hold for decades. First, I like the look of a dividend hero stock. Reinvesting dividends to build up the number of shares I own, which can eventually start paying me a passive income, forms a key part of my retirement planning. Second, I would be happy buying and holding a FTSE 100-listed company that invests in a portfolio of exciting high-growth stocks for decades. A portfolio of stocks can change over time and is unlikely to fail because of one bad bet. Because of this, I can be confident the company will still be around for years to come.A passive income stockStocks that pay reliable dividends are prime candidates to buy and hold for decades. A steady flow of dividends can be used to buy more shares. When its time to retire, there should be a stream of passive income to enjoy, or the shares can be sold. For this plan to work, I look to buy dividend hero stocks.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Consumer goods giant Unilever (LSE: ULVR) has not cut its dividend in nearly four decades. Unilever has historically made a little over 1.5 times as much in earnings as it pays out in dividends. Being able to cover dividends with earnings comfortably is a hallmark of a dividend hero stock, and forecasts for the next couple of years suggests the Unilever will continue to be a dividend hero.Unilever has recently won shareholder approval to simplify its corporate structure. This should make acquisitions easier, which is good because Unilever historically achieves a high rate of return on invested capital. Margins have been improving, and the company’s e-commerce strategy paid off handsomely as countries went into lockdown. I am happy buying Unilever and holding it for decades. The dividend yield is around 3% now but given Unilver’s history and ambitions, I except sustainable dividend growth from this FTSE 100 stock.FTSE 100 growthI have often lamented the lack of FTSE 100 stocks among the headline-making high-growth tech companies. However, Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (LSE: SMT) provides the kind of exposure I have been craving. The name of this FTSE 100 stock is somewhat misleading. What the mangers at Scottish Mortgage do is invest in a portfolio of around 90 stocks that they feel have competitive advantages in the new economy.Large and listed companies like Amazon (e-commerce), Tesla (electric vehicles), and ASML (computer chips) feature in Scottish Mortgage’s top 10 holdings. Investing in a high-growth portfolio has done wonders for Scottish Mortgage’s share price. Over the last five years, it has risen by an average of 30% per year, comfortably beating the FTSE 100. That kind of return would have transformed a £1,000 investment into over £4,000.Scottish Mortgage takes a long-term approach to its stock picks. Some are in smaller and unlisted companies that may take years to pay-off. Some will, of course, fail. Right now, some tech stocks look pricey and could fall. All this points to a lot of potential volatility in Scottish Mortage’s stock price. But that’s fine with me, as I am happy to buy these shares, hold them for decades, and ignore any short-term price swings.  Enter Your Email Address 2 FTSE 100 stocks I’d buy and hold for decades James J.

5 UK dividend stocks I’d buy for 2021 and beyond

first_img5 UK dividend stocks I’d buy for 2021 and beyond Buying UK dividend stocks is my favourite way of adding easy returns into my portfolio. This is especially true throughout periods of stock market uncertainty. When the FTSE 100 drops, dividend payments help to protect against capital gains losses and when the index rises they are a hedge against inflation. Moreover, when you invest for the long term, the probability of your investments recovering from short-term volatility increases.So, whatever 2021 has in store, I think the following five shares are some of the best dividend stocks on the FTSE 100 for future returns right now.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…1. GlaxoSmithKlineWell established, defensive stocks such as GSK are always a must for my portfolio whatever the state of the stock market. Paying a consistent quarterly dividend of 19p this year, despite the share price drop, Glaxo’s expected yield sits around a juicy 5.7%. The pharma giant also boasts a large portfolio of marketed products, giving it a competitive advantage with respect to its peers. Moreover, I think the firm is undervalued right now as investors focus on AstraZeneca and its potential Covid-19 vaccine. 2. BAE SystemsBAE Systems, with its strategic plans closely aligned with growth in global defence spending, is another stable dividend payer. The long-term nature of defence contracts mean the expected 4.6% dividend yield is likely highly sustainable throughout 2021 and beyond. It could be one of the safest dividend stocks on the Footsie. And with a dividend cover ratio of around 2.0, BAE currently has no problems in paying it.3. UnileverConsumer goods giant Unilever is another long-term purchase. Indeed, its steady share price has grown around 60% over the last five years. With fingers in many pies, so-to-speak, Unilever produces goods that people use every day, from soaps and other cleaning products to tea. This means that demand for the firm’s offerings is real and consistent. Indeed, it’s product branding it second-to-none, leaving peers in its wake. Who doesn’t recognise brands such as Knorr and Dove?  4. Reckitt BenckiserReckitt is another FTSE 100 stalwart with well-known brands, such as Dettol, Calgon, and Nurofen. Currently trading around £65, Reckitt is pulling back from its post-summer slump. This is likely due to excellent results so far this year. Indeed, I think the market for hygiene products is likely to keep growing in the near future, leaving Reckitt well-placed to capitalise on it.   5. Royal Dutch ShellOil companies have had a hard time this year, and Shell is no exception. However, last week it was one of the FTSE 100’s best-performing stocks, likely due to a climbing oil price and the news of multiple potential Covid-19 vaccines. However, Shell also leading the fossil fuel market in the conversion to renewables, the oil major aiming for net-zero emissions by 2050, and despite a dividend cut this year, a commitment to increase it going forward.  2021 is not far away and we don’t know what the future has in store. But, there are things we can do to protect investments from any potential volatility. Adding UK dividend stocks to a well-balanced portfolio is one such method. I think the five shares listed here are a good beginning. If you disagree, there are others out there, you just need to look.

The share price is up 10% so far this year. In this past month alone it’s put on 20%. That performance hasn’t been enough to get the Rolls-Royce share price back to where it was, though — it’s still 40% lower than this time last year.Here I will look at why the share price has been rising and consider whether I ought to add Rolls-Royce to my portfolio right now.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The Rolls-Royce share price received a vaccine boostThe company’s recent share price increase has coincided with growing vaccination roll out. As an aeroplane engine maker and servicer, the company’s fortunes are tied to demand for air travel.Rising vaccination rates ought to see more countries ease travel restrictions. That is good for Rolls-Royce, as the greater utilisation of engines, the higher the demand for servicing.However, while vaccination rates are rising, air travel is still nowhere near its normal level. The company clearly expects demand to increase. It said it should be cash flow positive in the second half of this year. However, its prior estimate of how fast air travel would return was adjusted downward. I think it is too early to say with any certainty whether air travel demand will actually come back to anything close to normal levels even by the end of this year.The company has substantial liquidity so should be able to ride out the storm even if it doesn’t turn cash flow positive in the second half. But that liquidity has come at a cost, most notably a large dilution of shares in last year’s rights issue. The challenge to the Rolls-Royce share price isn’t just about demand from airlines. I think it also reflects some investor nervousness that the company’s much-enlarged share float reduces the benefit to the shares even if the business does recover fully.Hunting for better optionsI find some aspects of the investment case for Rolls-Royce persuasive. It has a well-admired engineering expertise and reputation. The aircraft engine market is expensive and difficult to enter, so players like Rolls-Royce have a position of strength. Its installed base of engines virtually guarantees service revenues for years and sometimes decades to come, although a demand shock such as a future pandemic could affect them. In that sense, the company comes close to having the sort of economic moat Warren Buffett appreciates.But the pandemic has shown up some weaknesses in the company’s business model too. It is highly sensitive to demand, which is largely outside its control. Even with budget savings such as the elimination of 7,000 positions last year, the fixed costs of developing and servicing plane engines are high. That is one reason I think the Rolls-Royce share price is still well below its former level, even after the recent increase.Life getting back to normal will improve business prospects for the company. But for pandemic recovery picks I am more attracted by pub operators like J. D. Wetherspoon or transport companies like Go-Ahead. Their structural economics appeal to me more than those of Rolls-Royce, and demand recovery could come faster than it may for the aero engines market.last_img read more

Presiding Bishop celebrates Feast of Absalom Jones in Detroit

first_img Featured Jobs & Calls By Rick SchultePosted Feb 22, 2016 Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA [Diocese of Michigan] Celebrating the Feast of Absalom Jones on Feb. 20, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry touched on his ongoing theme of the “Jesus Movement,” a message enthusiastically received at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Detroit.“We were baptized not just into a membership of the church,” he said. “We were baptized into a movement. We’ve been baptized into the Jesus Movement, and we are the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement, meant to change the world. That’s who we are.”This was Curry’s first visit to the Diocese of Michigan as presiding bishop. His Absalom Jones message was that of prayer and action – and that prayer means more when backed by effort.“In the Last Supper, notice what Jesus says over and over again,” Curry said. “By this, everyone will know you are my disciples. How will they know this? That you will love one another.”It’s Curry’s insistence on being recognized by our actions that resonated with the audience.“That you love one another, Episcopal Church,” he said. “That you love one another, Diocese of Michigan. That you love one another, Anglican Communion. That you love one another.”“It was really powerful, really stirring,” said Kevin McLogan, a member of St. John’s in Royal Oak. “The presiding bishop really sent home that message of love and what it really means. I was so impressed, I took notes, actually. “It’s something that’s going to stay with me for quite a while.”A contingent from St. Matthew’s & St. Joseph’s in Detroit – a church with a notable history of promoting civil rights and social justice – was highly visible with matching “I’m part of the Jesus Movement” T-shirts – which Curry noticed and pointed out during his sermon.Brenda Cann, proudly wearing that shirt, came away moved by Curry’s message.“It was absolutely excellent, inspiring and motivating,” she said. “When it was over, I actually felt uplifted.”Curry explained there was a bit of wisdom in John being baptized in the Jordan River, rather than in a body of water like a lake, which exists but doesn’t display much visible movement.“He was baptized because John was baptizing into a movement, like the river that was moving,” he said. “John was baptizing him into the movement of God’s love, a movement that created this world in the very beginning, not because He had to, but because God is love, and that’s what love does.”The Rev. Laurel Dahill, rector of St. Mary’s-in-the-Hills in Lake Orion, said the message of a Jesus movement comes at the right time in our history.“I think that’s the message we need in the world. We can’t live in the world without Jesus,” she said. “We’ve tried, and it doesn’t work. We need Jesus.“We’ve had amazing people lead us in social justice movements, but without Jesus, it doesn’t work. We need more Jesus in the world.”The Rt. Rev. Wendell N. Gibbs Jr., bishop for the Diocese of Michigan, presided over the celebration. The following morning, Curry also delivered a sermon Christ Church Cranbrook in Bloomfield Hills.— Rick Schulte is director of communications for the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan.

19 charities win grant & strategic planning support from Weston Charity Awards

first_img19 charities win grant & strategic planning support from Weston Charity Awards Tagged with: Awards Nineteen frontline charities from the North of England, the Midlands and Wales have won the 2020 Weston Charity Awards, which received a record number of entries for its seventh year.The charities, which include Grace House North West, Music Action International (pictured), Manchester Action on Street Health, and Plant Dewi, will receive a core grant of £6,500 on top of a year of tailored strategic planning support from a dedicated team of four senior business and charity leaders.Between them the winners provide services to 62,777 people and range in size from £100,000 to nearly £2 million annual income. The people they support cope with a range of issues such as domestic abuse, caring responsibilities and the risks of working in the sex industry.Every one of the selected charities say their jobs have been made more difficult by the impact of coronavirus on their beneficiaries or their ability to deliver services. Thirteen have continued to provide some socially distanced face-to-face services. Five of the charities have moved services entirely online and one charity has been unable to offer services to the public.Philippa Charles, director of the Garfield Weston Foundation, which runs the awards with Pilotlight, said:“The Covid-19 pandemic has hit the most vulnerable in our communities hard – frontline charities in England are addressing increasing demands for their services with innovation, professionalism and determination; and they are doing so despite serious threats to their finances and operating models.”“As a Foundation we’ve needed to act swiftly to support frontline activities in the short term, but we continue to champion long-term planning for charities. The support and experience of the Weston Charity Awards puts charities in a really strong position to survive, adapt and thrive into the future.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  408 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Advertisement Melanie May | 12 June 2020 | News  407 total views,  2 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

County reviews proposed salary increases

first_img Church leaders condemn mayor’s disparaging comments Twitter Pinterest Previous articleDAILY OIL PRICE: May 29Next articleMan charged with sexually assaulting child admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook WhatsApp Twitter A week after stating they would like to see county employee salary increases, Ector County Commissioners received recommendations from County Attorney Dusty Gallivan to raise the salaries of county employees and officials that would cost the county around $2.6 million to implement.The salary committee was formed last August, meeting with department heads and elected officials to discuss changes and problems in the county pay system. Gallivan said the committee had spent around 40 hours talking with county employees about changes they would like to see.Gallivan’s first recommendation to commissioners was that all county employees employed as of March 31, 2018, would receive a 10 percent pay increase to whatever their current base is. This would include the county commissioners themselves, apart from the county judge, who would receive a different raise.“That would get us close to market value,” Gallivan said. “It’s still not market value, but it’s a step in the right direction.”Gallivan also suggested that any employee hired after that would be moved to a minimum of the new step 1 in the recommended system, which would be at the step 3 of the old system.The step system is designed to set the rate of pay for employees based on their time working with the county. Every year for the first five years, every employee moves up another step and receives a 5 percent raise, then for years six through nine, they receive that raise every other year, for years nine through 12, they receive a raise every three years, and then the step system stops. The pay for each step depends on the position, County Auditor David Austin said.In the new proposed step system, hourly county employees would be given a 4 percent raise every other year.Several county department heads would also see raises under the system, including Sheriff Mike Griffis, who has an annual salary of $86,303 under the Fiscal Year 2018 budget.“Our current sheriff makes less than some people who work for him,” Gallivan said. “It just doesn’t make sense to us.”Gallivan recommended raising the salary of sheriff, no matter who was elected to the position, to $120,000. He also recommended that the annual salary for the county auditor and the IT director, who currently makes $102,589.55 and $90,293, respectively. He suggested the county judge receive a raise to $125,000, and include a stipend should they have a law degree that would put their salary around the same as a county court at law judge, who makes $152,200. County Judge Ron Eckert currently makes $113,876.13.“These four individuals, the decisions they make day in and day out, affect everybody in the county,” Gallivan said, “and that’s why we feel they need a bump higher than 10 percent to their current base salary.”The estimated cost of these changes would be around $2.6 million, Gallivan said, which he said was a little higher because it included the pay of district judges, the district attorney and county attorney, whose pay would not be affected by the changes, as they’re paid based off state legislation.Eckert said there would be no salary changes resolved until the final budget is adopted, but agreed that county employees do need a raise.“There has been a problem with our salary structure,” Eckert said. “It’s not competitive to a certain degree with other counties, and we do end up losing employees to private industry. This is a cyclical problem, because as the oilfield goes up, that pay divergence between county work and private work grows larger.”Precinct 4 Commissioner Armando Rodriguez re-proposed a project to pave the 11.2 miles of unpaved roads in his precinct, which was previously turned down due to costs and saying they would like to see a study done on all unpaved roads throughout the county. The proposal entailed an initial survey of unpaved roads done by Landgraf, Crutcher & Associates for a fee of no more than $77,050, and a total project cost estimated to be $1,185,195.Rodriguez said he re-proposed the project because the cost of the project for widening 56th Street came out lower than expected at $731,864, and said they now had money to do the survey and break up the repaving in parts to pay over time. Rodriguez made the initial motion for the project.“I think we need to do it,” Rodriguez said. “I want to see economic development in all areas of Ector County,” Rodriguez said.Rodriguez’s motion was met with complete silence from the other commissioners.“Motion dies for lack of a second,” Eckert said.“I just want to be sure,” Rodriguez said after the motion died. “I want to see more economic development in all of Ector County, but I can see that you don’t.”Eckert said after the meeting Rodriguez is entitled to his opinion, but didn’t agree with his statement, looking at it as a money issue.“That discussion came on the heels of the discussion of employee raises and restructuring of that which would be, if accepted, would have been about $2.6 million,” Eckert said. “I’m as interested in economic development as the next person, but I also think that we have to do something for our employees, because they’ve been without a raise for several years.”Rodriguez said he plans to re-present the issue as budget talks for the next fiscal year continue, which will begin Oct. 1.IN OTHER BUSINESS, COMMISSIONERSApproved the extension of the March 8 Burn Ban in Ector County.Received a report concerning the MHRC Plans that have been submitted since Dec. 1, 2014 for all precincts.Withdrew a request to authorize an asbestos study and report for all county-owned buildings located between Third and Fourth Street on the east side of Texas Avenue.Rejected the requested purchase and installation of a new Biometric Access entry system for the Sheriff’s Office and the jail at a cost of $6,913.01 to be purchased out of LEC Debt monies, to be looked at after the next budget is passed.Approved a proposed purchase of a walk behind airless pavement striper for parking lot and other assigned areas of roadway striping, and to approve a proposed line item transfer to equipment services fund, special department equipment from equipment services fund, motor vehicle equipment for $16,845.Approved the bid and contract for the Ramp Grant 2017-2018, signage upgrade and surge suppression projects, and the proposed budget amendment to capital improvement fund — county airport, ramp grant improvements from unreserved fund balance in the amount of $10,578.Approved the proposed agreement with Reece Albert, Inc. for the widening of 56th Street (from Billy Hext to Faudree Roads) and the proposed master service agreement with Reece Albert, Inc.Approved the proposed AIA Change Order No. 7, for the Jail Additions and Renovations Project.Approved a request to hire a previous employee who left at a corporal step 4 position and rehire back as a jailer II/Deputy I, from step 1 to step 4.Approved a request to hire a CPS attorney at a step 5 due to experience.Approved the proposed Pampas Villas Subdivision being a 29.2 acre tract of land out of section 5, block 41, T-1-S T&P TY Co. survey.Will consider the proposed Armendariz MHRC to be located at 10188 Westridge Drive being a 1.75 acre tract out of lot 4, block 6, Westridge Subdivision, a subdivision of 674.44 acres of land in section 16, block 43, T-2-S, T&P Ry.

Ver la noticia completa aquí: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210129005649/es/ 83% of Oracle Database Licensees Cite Vendor Support Costs as Excessive or Too Much; Burdensome Updates and Poor Vendor Support Among Top Challenges in Survey (Graphic: Business Wire) El 83 % de los licenciatarios de Oracle Database indicaron que los costos de soporte del proveedor son excesivos o demasiado altos; entre los principales desafíos de la encuesta aparecen las actualizaciones complicadas y el deficiente soporte del proveedor Rimini Street, Inc. (Nasdaq: RMNI), un proveedor global de productos y servicios de software empresarial, el proveedor de soporte externo líder para productos de software de Oracle y SAP, y un socio de Salesforce, divulgó hoy los resultados de su encuesta de los licenciatarios de Oracle Database realizada para comprender sus principales desafíos, prioridades y estrategias con respecto al panorama y uso de Oracle Database. Los costos son el desafío principal con Oracle Database Cuando se les preguntó cuáles eran los tres principales desafíos con Oracle Database, un abrumador 97 % de los encuestados indicó que el costo general era el desafío n.º 1. El n.º 2 fue para el cumplimiento de licencias con el 51 % y “las actualizaciones regulares para mantener el soporte” del proveedor fue el desafío n.º 3, identificado por el 50 % de los encuestados. Asimismo, señalaron desafíos adicionales que incluyen “la seguridad, el costo y el esfuerzo para aplicar parches de seguridad” (42 %), “mantener el rendimiento/la disponibilidad” (34 %) y “el deficiente soporte de Oracle” (21 %). Cuando se les preguntó específicamente sobre el costo del soporte del proveedor, casi el 83 % de los encuestados señalaron que los costos de soporte y mantenimiento de Oracle Database son excesivos o que están pagando demasiado. El 73 % de los encuestados piensan que no están recibiendo mejoras de base de datos suficientes o valiosas que justifiquen el costo del soporte de Oracle. Los licenciatarios de Oracle Database buscan opciones para gestionar los costos y extender la vida útil Debido al alto costo del soporte de Oracle Database en medio de presupuestos de TI ajustados y recursos limitados, las empresas están buscando mejores alternativas y más rentables para gestionar su estrategia de Oracle Database, que incluyen el aplazamiento de actualizaciones importantes de la base de datos, el cambio a un soporte externo y la adopción de opciones de código abierto con el tiempo. Por ejemplo, el licenciatario de Oracle Database Rent-A-Center encontró dicha solución con el soporte de Rimini Street. “Tenemos numerosos ejemplos de Oracle Database y estábamos luchando por mantener ciclos de actualización costosos y problemáticos. Pero eso no es todo. Cuando revisamos nuestro contrato de mantenimiento, nos dimos cuenta de que las mejoras disponibles no ofrecían un retorno de la inversión significativo para nuestro negocio específicamente y las actualizaciones requeridas solo para mantener el soporte simplemente no justificaban el alto costo”, expresó Juan Rajani, director de Servicios de Aplicación de TI de Rent-A-Center. “Cambiamos al soporte de Rimini Street para maximizar nuestro sistema de base de datos de misión crítica de la que depende mucho el negocio, y ahora recibimos una calidad de soporte superior y con mayor capacidad de respuesta: es como el día y la noche”. Los encuestados indicaron que están considerando pasarse o que están pasando a bases de datos de código abierto (35 %) o bases de datos que no sean de Oracle Cloud (34 %) en lo posible debido a costos más bajos o a un desarrollo más rápido como parte de su estrategia general de Oracle Database. En el caso de aquellos encuestados que están considerando las bases de datos de código abierto específicamente, las opciones más frecuentes son PostgreSQL, MySQL y MongoDB. La encuesta determina que un gran porcentaje de encuestados (41 %) ha adoptado la estrategia de reducir activamente su huella en Oracle Database con el tiempo. De aquellos encuestados cuya estrategia de base de datos incluye reducir su huella en Oracle, su motivo n.º 1 es el alto costo total de la implementación de Oracle Database (casi el 45 %), que incluye el costo de las licencias, el soporte y mantenimiento, las actualizaciones y el uso de parches en su base de datos. Muchas versiones de Oracle Database ya no tendrán soporte pleno después de 2020 Al menos el 73 % de los encuestados estaban operando las versiones de Oracle Database que ya no tendrían soporte pleno de Oracle en diciembre de 2020 o ya estaban en Soporte sostenido (Sustaining Support) en ese momento (o no sabían). Esto indica una tendencia hacia maximizar la vida útil y el valor de las versiones de bases de datos actualmente licenciadas, con un soporte externo como una opción de solución habilitante en muchos casos. Actualmente, la versión 11.1 de Oracle Database está en Soporte sostenido y la versión 11.2 de Oracle Database entró recientemente a Soporte sostenido a fines de diciembre de 2020. “Los resultados de la encuesta indican que la mayoría de los licenciatarios de Oracle Database se sienten frustrados con las altas tarifas anuales de mantenimiento y las actualizaciones obligatorias y costosas en virtud del soporte de Oracle, y están buscando mejores opciones para gestionar su estrategia y panorama de Oracle Database”, expresó Frank Reneke, vicepresidente del grupo y director general de Oracle Services. “Rimini Street ayuda a los licenciatarios de Oracle a maximizar el retorno a su inversión de Oracle Database al extender la vida útil de las versiones actuales, al reducir significativamente los costos anuales de mantenimiento y al no requerir actualizaciones innecesarias para mantener un soporte completo”.

All drilling was carried out under the supervision of Roxgold personnel. RC drilling used a 5.25 inch face sampling pneumatic hammer with samples collected into 60 litre plastic bags. Samples were kept dry by maintaining enough air pressure to exclude groundwater inflow. If water ingress exceeded the air pressure, RC drilling was stopped, and drilling converted to diamond core tails. Aircore (“AC”) drilling was collected in one metre intervals and sampled in a similar fashion to RC methods. Once collected, RC and AC samples were riffle split through a three-tier splitter to yield a 12.5% representative sample for submission to the analytical laboratory. The residual 87.5% sample were stored at the drill site until assay results were received and validated. Coarse reject samples for all mineralized samples corresponding to significant intervals are retained and stored on-site at the Company controlled core yard. DD drill holes were drilled with HQ sized diamond drill bits. The core was logged, marked up for sampling using standard lengths of one metre. Samples were then cut into equal halves using a diamond saw. One half of the core was left in the original core box and stored in a secure location at the Company core yard at Séguéla. The other half was sampled, catalogued and placed into sealed bags and securely stored at the site until shipment. All Séguéla RC, AC and DD core samples were shipped to ALS Laboratories preparation laboratory in Yamoussoukro for preparation. Samples were dried and crushed by the Lab and a 250-gram split prepared from the coarse crushed material, prior to pulverization and preparation of a 200g sample. Samples are then shipped via commercial courier to ALS’s analytical facility in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso where routine gold analysis using a 50-gram charge and fire assay with an atomic absorption finish was completed. Quality control procedures included the systematic insertion of blanks, duplicates and sample standards into the sample stream. In addition, the Lab inserted its own quality control samples.

The implications of the inclusion of Koula into the Feasibility Study are apparent, and we are confident that the market will see material improvements upon the already robust Preliminary Economic Assessment when the Feasibility Study is released next quarter. “While the infill program for Koula has been completed, our drills are still turning, as we look to test the extension potential of Koula along strike and at depth; as well as returning to Ancien to resume the extension testing program which was deferred upon the discovery of Koula. Additionally, our scout drill program has resumed as we have over 28 named targets across the Séguéla project and continue to identify further targets with boots on the ground. Séguéla has already become a cornerstone asset for Roxgold, and we believe that the project will continue to grow in importance in our portfolio as we advance it toward initial production next year and expand its scope through additional exploration success.” Paul Weedon, Vice President Exploration commented “These outstanding high grade results mark the conclusion of the Indicated infill drill program ahead of modelling and inclusion in the forthcoming Feasibility Study due in the second quarter. These results continue the high grade theme that we have seen at Koula, with results such as 12m at 38.3 g/t from 180 metres down-hole in SGRD1065, 16m at 28.3 g/t Au in drill hole SGRD1083 from 77m down-hole, and 15m at 24.0 g/t Au in drill hole SGRC1025 from 42m down-hole. With the deposit open down-plunge, drilling has started on deep step-out holes approximately 120m further down-plunge from the previously deepest intersection of 14m at 4.3g/t intersected in SGRD971.” Figure 1. Séguéla deposits and satellite prospects Koula Located approximately 1km to the east of Antenna, Koula was discovered through field reconnaissance and coincident recent artisanal workings in an area previously considered to be a lower exploration priority. A 4 rig infill program of RC and diamond drilling with the goal of infilling the deposit to 25m centres to support an upgraded Indicated classification has been completed. This further supports the rapid advancement and inclusion in the forthcoming Feasibility Study. Mineralization is hosted by quartz-carbonate veining associated with a well developed mylonitic fabric within and along the interpreted margins of a tholeiitic basalt which in turn has been tightly folded. Coarse gold is commonly recorded in the higher grade zones (eg. Figure 3 – coarse gold in drill core, SGRC1083), with drilling highlighting a consistent moderate southerly plunge to the high grade core over at least 350m, and where it remains open to the south with hole SGRD971 intersecting 14m at 4.3 g/t Au from 273m downhole.
