    Turner Pope Research NoteToday 12:17
    W Resources (WRES) is currently focused on near-term production from its wholly-owned La Parrilla tungsten and tin mine located in southwest Spain.
    The Company is in the final construction stage of the new large-scale concentrator plant and has already commissioned the new crusher and jig plants. The newly commissioned crusher and jig plants are now operating at near design capacity. As such, we expect the Company will be able to ramp-up production during Q3 2019.

    We value the La Parrilla project on a DCF basis given its near-term production and provide a relative valuation based on our selected tungsten explorers for the Régua project. Assuming a discount rate of 10%, a flat long-term tungsten price of US$300/mtu and inputs from the FID, we calculate an NPV of £85.1m or 1.41p per share. To this we then add an implied EV of £3.9m or 0.07p per share, based on our average EV/resource multiple of US$3.2/mtu to the Régua project. Taken together, we calculate an indicative enterprise value of £89.0 which translates into an equity value of £64.8m or 1.07p per share, representing a 155% upside to WRES’ current share price.

    Wolf Minerals (WLFE LN) SUSPENDED – Liquidators selling spirals from Drakelands • The announcement today by W Resources included the information that the liquidators of Wolf Minerals had sold 72 spirals from the mothballed Drakelands mine in Devon.

    • It is unclear whether all of the spirals from Drakelands have been sold or whether some remain on site but their disposal suggests that efforts to reopen the mine under new ownership are proving difficult.

    • In our opinion, as long as the principal items of the crushing and grinding circuit remain on site, the re-opening of Drakelands remains relatively achievable as spirals should be comparatively inexpensive and straightforward to replace. However, with the current price of the benchmark ammonium paratungstate price languishing at levels last seen in early 2017, potential purchasers may be few and far between – or may simply be taking a hard-headed view of the acquisition price.

    • In addition to the continuing difficulties at Drakelands, yesterday’s news of the setback to funding the Sirius Minerals project in Yorkshire casts a further shadow over hopes of a resurgence in the UK mining industry.

    “Panorama Project - commenced aeromagnetic ground surveys on July 15th. Results due!

    Firetower project - drilling commenced June 19th. News due!

    Stage One of Havieron’s JV drilling campaign in its later stages. Will #Newcrest commit another $10m expenses and move to stage 2? Any more strikes like these and they’d be mad not to. Stay tuned for more core results this month!

    Patterson Range East - Comprehensive ground gravity and surface geochemistry is expected to commence in August.

    New fix for smart meters still riddled with issues
    Households have waited years for next-generation devices to solve past problems. But fresh flaws are now coming to light, writes Sam Meadows

    Around one in five second-generation smart meters, designed to fix their predecessors’ flaw of “going dumb” when a user switches energy supplier, has had problems displaying energy usage or connecting to the new national data network, Telegraph Money has discovered.

    This means that households 
could be unable to track their 
energy use and their supplier may not be receiving reliable meter readings – the two main benefits 
of the devices.

    The majority of the 14 million smart meters now in use are first-generation models, known as “Smets 1”, many of which risk losing their digital functions if a consumer switches supplier.

    The new version, “Smets 2”, has been installed widely this year. These meters are supposed to connect to a national data network, allowing households to switch seamlessly. But the long-awaited roll-out has not been going entirely to plan.

    In May, one medium-sized energy firm, Bulb, said that of 24,000 Smets 2 meters it had installed, roughly 7,000 were not working as they should.

    Another energy supplier told Telegraph Money that of 25,000 it had installed recently, 5,000 had required another visit from an engineer to rectify problems.

    This newspaper has previously reported on problems with the communications network in the North, which effectively cut users off from switchable smart meters. This has yet to be fully resolved.

    Most concerning is an issue known in the industry as “bricking”, which is when a device shuts down due to a perceived security flaw and needs to be replaced. An executive at one supplier said the meters were hypersensitive to tampering and hacking and that manufacturer testing appeared to trigger a security measure that risked shutting down a small number of meters. The executive said this was often not noticed until they had been installed, meaning, in some cases, that a replacement was necessary. The cost of replacing a meter is around £200, likely to be passed on to consumers through energy bills.

    The £11bn smart meter programme has fallen behind schedule and tens of millions more installations are needed within 18 months to meet the deadline. More than two million meters are operating in “dumb” mode, usually caused by a switch of supplier.

    One energy insider said: “This is a major infrastructure project, but it has been rushed. The introduction of Wi-Fi had a lot of these same issues, but that equipment spent 10 years going from the lab to commercial use. With smart meters they have just gone ahead and a lot of the problems are coming to light only when they are in people’s homes.”

    Alan Whitehead, the shadow minister for energy and climate change, said smart meters represented a vital upgrade, but the roll-out had been mishandled.

    “The Government’s handling of this has been quite catastrophic,” he said. “It’s time for a bit of honesty about the failure of targets and the technological problems being faced. A new approach is needed to roll out this essential technology.”

    The Data Communications Company, responsible for the national data network, said almost 1.5 million meters were now connected and installation rates in the North were seven times higher than at the start of the year.

    A spokesman for the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy said: “More than 14 million smart meters are operating across the country, including more than 1.5 million second-generation devices. Millions of consumers and businesses are already reaping the benefits as we move to a cheaper, more efficient and reliable energy system.”

    Good summary From lse ;)

    Sat 09:00
    It was a crazy week on Dish. Like the discounts on the app, the SP more or less found itself at a 50pc off bargain price to the recent highs. Thought worth sharing the reasons I have held and intend to continue to hold, for what they are worth:

    1) Dish is a tech intermediary, it connects restaurants with diners. Like comparethemarket does with insurers and customers, air bnb, uber, just eat and so on. It manufactures nothing apart from the tech that connects. Which is my favourite business model and a hot space.
    2) the tech is run in the east at far lower cost than the UK, thanks to Dish's origins out there. By the way, they doubling the size of the tech team. Ready for rapid growth.
    3) it's in the food space. Again, a hot space.
    4) Sanj Naha, the CEO. I had dabbled before he joined, but his appointment was a masterstroke. He has a fantastic track record and grown intermediary platforms in the food space exponentially in the past. Perfect fit.
    5) Aidan, the founder, has serious skin in the game. He holds around 30pc of shares I believe. Aligned with us as shareholders. He is a good guy and an open book. 10pc sit with our new investor in cali, and many of the rest are in sticky hands. When it flies again, and it will, it will fly quickly I think.
    6) Everyone wins with Dish. Restaurants and customers. I popped into zizzis the other night, it was full and the waitress told me that nearly everyone was there using 2 for 1 deal.
    7) Yield management is a proven model. It's worked in other industries and in this one. It gets bums on seats, allows restaurants to cover overhead costs at quieter times, address food wastage and so on.
    7) incremental income opportunities. Have been alluded to many times by #dish, eg. Promoted placement, advertising and so on. Dish believe the app will be unrecognisable from what it is now in 18mths.
    8) national roll out is on. Their number 1 focus is recruitment of good people into the 10 regions to deliver 'hypergrowth'. They expect most in place by September I believe. We will see an huge amount of RNSs over the next 18 months as they cover the UK. For context that's 2 account managers in the past to 13.
    9) Rapid growth in the numbers. 13 sales people x TBC targeted sign ups a month. In the past I think Sanj has said he'd expect about 20 pm per manager.
    10) Numbers rapidly boosted by chains. 'We will have chains on dish this year' said Aidan recently. Aidan and Sanj were actually meeting with a chain in London yday, at the request of the chain.That could add many hundreds or more to the app in one go. Times multiple chains over time.
    11) No more placings for a long time. Fully funded til 2021. If needed again in 18mths SP will be much higher = little dilution.
    11) the acquisition play. Aidan has been quite transparent that is the end game. I am holding for that journey. 100m would be 35p share. 200m 70p roughly. Who knows how high it could go.
    12) Finally, I enjoy this investment. It's a journey.
