This is a classic Rick Rule deal: With very little risk to his company (because he’s already worked out how long Alio Gold (ALO.to) can remain in production before the financials ruin it completely) he turns $15m into $20m in three years. It’s great business, I mean how many mining equity investments have given you a +10% column in your port for three years running? Meanwhile ALO.to just told the world how bad its financial situation is, even with U$1,500/oz gold. Highly doubt Rule has assumed he’ll get 80c for his 1.22m ALO.to shares in 121 days’ time.
