The Fox-Davies Capital Revised Commodity and Exchange Rate Forecasts have now been updated with commentary for 1Q'13.
Fox Marble (LON:FOX) has successfully extracted three blocks of high quality red marble from its Cervenilla quarry in Kosovo. These were shipped to Carrara in Italy and processed and cut into polished sample slabs. This produced attractive results with minimal damage and wastage, highlighting the quality and durability of Cervenilla marble. This is very positive for the Company as it demonstrates that they can operate in Kosovo, even in winter and that the marble produced at Cervenilla is robust enough to withstand the stresses of processing with minimal wastage. This is important as it impacts the price Fox Marble receives for the blocks.
Hochschild Mining PLC (LON:HOC) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, 1710503 Alberta Ltd.
