    More a glimmer of hope, but who knows !
    I have been wondering ever since Leon Pretorius began his interest in attaining BLR, that just maybe he's there for a reason.

    Anyone that know the history of Pretorius, would know that he was the Chief Geologist when Paladin first purchased Langer Heinrich, & actually it was Leon to whom highlighted the potential to John Borshoff.


    Mr Borshoff said the additional $US50 million shouldn't detract from the company's position but suggested it implied the miner intends to use the funds to facilitate a strategic alliance currently under discussion.

    Paladin Energy chief executive John Borshoff said the uranium miner's plans to issue $US100 million ($131 million) worth of new convertible bonds would successfully eliminate "the risk of Paladin".

    The company launched the senior unsecured convertible bonds offer as it announced its half-year results, which saw Paladin record a $US67.2 million net loss after tax following a hit on its revenue during the period.

    The funds generated will be used, along with existing cash, to fund a concurrent tender offer, through which Paladin plans to acquire $US300 million worth of existing convertible bonds due in November.

    The company said it had scope to issue a further $US50 million of bonds on the same terms within the next 30 days if it chose.

    Mr Borshoff said the additional $US50 million shouldn't detract from the company's position but suggested it implied the miner intends to use the funds to facilitate a strategic alliance currently under discussion.

    "You could infer that our strategic alliance discussions are going very well and that extra $US50 million component is to facilitate that," he said. "So that's a very big positive and completely at our discretion because we only need the $US100 million for the November bonds."
