A Miner With Lots of Cash, A Profitable Mine, and a Healthy Dividend. Really.

Bisha is one of the best performing mines in the world
Bisha is one of the best performing mines in the world and Nevsun, which has one of the cleanest balance sheets and lowest production costs of any base metal miner, pays more than any other miner a 5.6% dividend to its investors.

With so much uncertainty, it is easy to hesitate. Why buy now? Continue reading A Miner With Lots of Cash, A Profitable Mine, and a Healthy Dividend. Really.

After recent drilling, the steeply dipping deposit, now shows that it continues at depth and along strike and is associated with new gold rich zones. Continue reading Harena Exploration Bolsters Bisha Mine
