    I was keen to see what might have attracted DRD's interest sufficiently to have them buying 14% odd of the stock.

    For those that haven't looked.

    - EMP's principle gold asset is Vatukoula mine in Fiji.
    - Gold earns 7.5% of Fiji's foreign exchange
    - EMP is Fiji's largest private sector employer.
    - In 68 years of operation Vatulouka has produced 6.5 million ounces and still contains a resource of 3.5 million ounces including a reserve of 1 million ounces.
    - Production has historically exceeded resource model by 30%
    EMP's biggest problem has been a high COP.
    - Last years $2.3 million profit was first profit in 6 years achieved on production of 131k ounces and cash cost of $437 per ounce.
    - Expansion of production will lift gold production to 180,000 ounces per annum within next three years with corresponding unit operating cost decline.
    - EMP has zero debt and $19 million in cash to fund the expansion.
    - EMP is supposedly highly leveraged to gold price.

    Whilst EMP appears to be firmly back in uptrend it appears to be encountering some resistance around 82c

    Any comments most welcome
