Ich bin gespannt, was heute in Canada passiert! Und dann bei uns! Bisher läuft es hier ja sehr gut...in Canada liegen im Bid heute "großzügie" 28,5... ist aber trotzdem wieder gute 10% unter letztem Kurs! Schaun wir mal!
will ich die Euphorie nicht zu sehr bremsen, +9,75% am Schluss sieht sich recht gut an. Andererseits sind wir damit noch nicht einmal wieder auf dem Stand von vor 2 Tagen, an dem es uns gewaltsam hier wie drüben gebeutelt hat. Auch heute war wieder zu erkennen, dass die Nebenbörsen ohne Umsatz begleitend tiefer taxen, auch den Brief tiefer setzen. Normal ist das noch nicht! Erfreulich, dass Canada zu diesen Discountpreisen nicht reagiert, der Bid-Setzer hat seine Aktion wieder umsonst verrichtet, man darf gespannt sein, wo er morgen wieder als Einzelkämpfer landet. Auch die gesamte Marktsituation ist doch noch nicht so beruhigt, wie es die letzten beiden Tage ausgesehen hat. Im Hintergrund herrscht große Hektik! Schwächelt der DOW auch nur gering, gehen die Rohstoffe sofort wieder in die Knie, Substanzwerte bis zu 10 Prozent, das ist schon heftig! Da es der DOW am Schluss wieder auf +/-0 geschafft hat (wurde!), besteht für morgen zumindest Hoffnung. Und weiterhin die Hoffnung, dass sich VG unabhängig vom übrigen Marktgeschehen entwickeln wird!
Vedron Gold Inc. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS JUNE 30, 2007 Vedron Gold Inc. Management’s Discussion and Analysis – June 30, 2007 - 2 - General The following discussion of performance, financial condition and future prospects should be read in conjunction with Vedron Gold Inc. (the “Company” or “Vedron”) financial statements and notes thereto for the years ended December 31, 2006 and 2005, which were prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in Canada. Additional information, including an Annual Information Form can be found on SEDAR, www.sedar.com. All dollar amounts are in Canadian dollars. This discussion and analysis is dated July 28, 2007. Overview The principal business of Vedron is to explore and develop gold properties in Timmins, Ontario, Canada and to acquire additional gold properties in the Timmins area. Vedron Gold Inc. was formed on March 10, 1972 by articles of amalgamation under the Ontario Business Corporations Act. Vedron is currently focused on exploring its properties; the Buffalo Ankerite and the Fuller properties which are 100% owned, and the Davidson Tisdale property, where Vedron is earning up to a 75% property interest, having earned a 70% interest in the property as of June 30, 2007. Vedron’s principal property is the Fuller Property, the initial portion purchased in 1980 and the balance in 1985. The property is 100% owned by the Company and contains the Fuller deposit, which contains gold zones that have been developed by a decline ramp to a depth of 650 feet with levels at 150, 225, 375, 500 and 650 feet. A National Policy 43-101 property report was filed on www.sedar.com on February 18, 2004, and an updated 43-101 report was filed May 5, 2006. Vedron is conducting exploration work below the existing area of known gold mineralization in an effort to increase the gold mineralized zones to greater depths. Permitting and planning work on the property is being carried for the purpose of preparing the property for future mining operations. The Fuller Property is Vedron’s material mineral property. Consequently, unless Vedron acquires additional properties or projects, any adverse development affecting the Fuller property could have a material adverse affect on Vedron and would materially and adversely affect Vedron’s potential resource production, profitability, financial performance and results of operations. Vedron’s other significant development properties are the Buffalo Ankerite Property and the Davidson Tisdale property. The Company is now looking beyond the exploration and development stage, and is starting to make preparations for future production. Vedron may consider possible joint-venture arrangements for a milling partner once the Company enters the production stage. The company has also engaged mining industry consultants to assist in applying for the permits and planning work required for gold mining operations. Overall Performance For the six month period ended June 30, 2007 the company increased its cash position, including marketable securities, from $1,506,965 at December 31, 2006 to $4,676,940, due to a financing closed during the previous quarter. The company has sufficient cash resources on hand to maintain exploration work on its Ontario gold properties for the remainder of the year. The Company will continue to focus on its three central Timmins properties during 2007, with exploration work, permitting and mine planning activities. The main activities carried out during the quarter were increasing the quantum of gold resources through exploration drilling on the Buffalo Ankerite property and completion of the drilling that was started during the first quarter on the Davidson Tisdale property. Vedron Gold Inc. Management’s Discussion and Analysis – June 30, 2007 - 3 - Selected Financial Information The following table provides selected financial information that should be read in conjunction with the financial statements of the Company.

The Company has no income from mining operations. For the period ended June 30, 2007, the Company had a net loss of $166,781 ($313,871 – June 30, 2006). The decreased loss of $147,090 over the comparable quarter June 30, 2006 was mainly due to a future income tax recovery of $85,000 and an increase in interest earned of $50,332. Operating expenses for the quarter ending June 30, 2007 of $302,164 (June 30, 2006 - $313,922) remained consistent with the similar quarter in 2006. There was a recovery of future income taxes of $85,000 in June 30, 2007 (June 30, 2006 – nil). The Company increased its cash and marketable securities from $1,506,965 as at December 31, 2006 to $4,676,940 as at June 30, 2007. Revenue The Company did not earn revenue during the period ended June 30, 2007, other than interest on investments of $50,383.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis – June 30, 2007 - 4 - Expenses cont’d General and administrative decreased by $57,484 (-18%), due to reduced corporate activities associated with property acquisitions, corporate funding, permitting and mine planning activities and investor communications. Amortization increased due to the commencement of the amortization of the mill equipment. The note payable gain of $30,000 in the quarter ended June 30, 2006 related to a one-time payment of an amount previously deemed uncollectable. Exploration Expenditures Drilling and other exploration expenditures are capitalized. Exploration expenditures, excluding acquisition costs, in the quarter ended June 30, 2007 amounted to $578,948 compared to $450,144 in the quarter ended June 30, 2006. Exploration and development expenditures in the quarter ended June 30, 2007 included $220,134 on the Davidson Tisdale Property, $51,946 on the Fuller Property and $300,164 on the Buffalo Ankerite Property. Limited exploration work was performed on the Windsor Property. The Company is focused on exploring and developing its three advanced gold properties located in central Timmins, Ontario; the Davidson Tisdale Property, the Fuller Property and the Buffalo Ankerite Property.

The Company closed a $5,500,000 private placement in the first quarter, resulting in 13,750,000 shares being issued. The company has sufficient cash resources on hand to maintain exploration work on its Ontario gold properties for the remainder of the year ended December 31, 2007. Outstanding Share Data The authorized capital of the Company is comprised of an unlimited number of common shares. At June 30, 2007 the Company had 86,201,014 common shares outstanding. The Company had 13,825,000 purchase warrants outstanding as at June 30, 2007, of which 2,500,000 were exercisable at $0.35 until September 6, 2007, 10,362,500 are exercisable at $0.60 until August 13, 2008 and 962,500 are exercisable at $0.40 until August 28, 2008. The Company has 4,445,000 options outstanding as of June 30, 2007 exercisable at prices ranging from $0.20 to $0.60 per share. Commitments Vedron enters into option agreements with others whereby the Company may earn an interest in certain mineral properties by making option payments in cash and property work obligations to maintain the option on properties. Vedron’s current commitments are as follows: 1) The Davidson Tisdale agreement has commitments of up to $550,000, none in 2007 and the remainder in 2008, including $20,000 in cash payments and the rest in property expenditures. 2) The Windsor Property agreement has commitments of $10,000 and 50,000 shares on October 4th, 2007 and a final $10,000 and 50,000 shares on October 4th, 2008. Vedron is also to maintain the claims in good standing for the duration of the agreement. Transactions with Related Parties Management fees were paid to officers and directors, totalling $45,000 for the quarter. The Company paid legal fees of $7,247 for the quarter to a firm in which an officer of the Company is also a partner of the law firm. The Company has paid/accrued directors’ fees to directors of the Company totalling $9,000 for the quarter. All related party transactions entered into by the Company are recorded at fair market value as determined by the Company’s directors with no beneficial interest in respect of a particular transaction. Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements As at June 30, 2007, the Company does not have off-balance sheet arrangements. Use of Estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumption that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amount of expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Vedron Gold Inc. Management’s Discussion and Analysis – June 30, 2007 - 6 - Nature of Operations Vedron is an exploration and development company engaged in the mining business. Some of its mineral properties are currently being explored and developed, and the Company has not yet determined whether these properties contain reserves that are economically recoverable. The recoverability of the amount shown for mineral properties is dependent upon the existence of economically recoverable reserves, as established in accordance with National Instrument No. 43-101, the ability of Vedron to obtain the necessary financing to complete exploration and development and upon future profitable production or proceeds from disposition of such properties. The Company tries to maximize its exposure to promising exploration and development opportunities, to manage the risks inherent in exploration and to make appropriate use of financial management resources. Additional Funding Requirements As discussed, the mineral properties of Vedron are in the exploration and development stage and, as a result, the Company has no source of operating cash flow. The Company intends to raise such additional funds to complete its projects. There is no assurance that Vedron will be able to raise additional funds on reasonable terms. The development of any ore deposits found on the exploration properties of Vedron depends on the ability of the Company to obtain financing through debt financing, equity financing or other means. If the exploration and development programs of Vedron are successful, additional funds will be required to develop the properties and, if successful, to place them in commercial production. The only source of future funds presently available to Vedron is the sale of equity capital of Vedron, or the sale by Vedron of an interest in any of its properties in whole or in part. The ability of Vedron to arrange such financing in the future will depend in part upon the prevailing capital market conditions as well as the business performance of the Company. There can be no assurance that Vedron will be successful in its efforts to arrange additional financing if needed on terms satisfactory to Vedron. If additional financing is raised by the issuance of shares from the treasury of the Corporation, control of Vedron may change and shareholders may suffer additional dilution. If adequate financing is not available, Vedron may be required to delay, reduce the scope of, or eliminate one or more exploration activities or relinquish rights to certain of its interests. Failure to obtain additional financing on a timely basis could cause Vedron to forfeit its interests in some or all of its properties and reduce or terminate its operations. Mineral Properties and Deferred Exploration Costs The Company defers the costs of exploration and capital assets in existing projects and carries them as assets until production begins. Mineral properties and deferred exploration expenditures are recorded at cost and do not necessarily reflect present or future values. If a project is successful, the related mineral properties and deferred exploration expenditures will be amortized over the estimated economic life of the project. If a project is unsuccessful, or if exploration ceased because continuation is not economically feasible, the mineral properties and related exploration expenditures are written off. Senior management periodically reviews the carrying value of the mineral properties and deferred exploration expenditures to consider whether there are any conditions that may indicate impairment. Where estimates of future cash flows are available, a reduction in carrying value is recorded to the extent the net book value of the investment exceeds the estimated future cash flows. Where estimates of the future cash flows are not available and where other conditions suggest impairment, management assesses if the carrying value can be recovered and provides for impairment, if so indicated. Stock-based Compensation Effective January 1, 2004, Vedron adopted the amendment to CICA Handbook Section 3870 "Stock-Based Compensation and Other Stock-Based Payment". The amendment, issued November 2003, requires the expensing of all stock-based compensation awards for fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2004 using the prospective transitional alternative as permitted by the standard, and has therefore used the fair value method for stock-based compensation awards. Any consideration paid by employees on exercise of the stock options or purchase of stock is credited to share capital. Vedron Gold Inc. Management’s Discussion and Analysis – June 30, 2007 - 7 - Risks and Uncertainties The Company’s business of exploring and developing mineral properties is highly uncertain and risky by its very nature. In addition, the ability to raise funding in the future to maintain the Company’s exploration and development activities is dependant on financial markets that often fail to provide necessary capital. Regulatory standards continue to change making the review process longer, more complex and more costly. Even if an apparently mineable deposit is developed, there is no assurance that it will ever reach production or be profitable, as its potential economics are influenced by many key factors such as commodity prices, foreign exchange rates, equity markets and political interference, which can not be controlled by management. Management’s evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining a system of controls and procedures over the public disclosure of financial and non-financial information regarding the Company. Such controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance that all relevant information is gathered and reported, on a timely basis, to senior management, including the President and the Chief Financial Officer (CFO), so that appropriate decisions can be made by them regarding public disclosure. The system of disclosure controls and procedures includes, but is not limited to, our Disclosure Policy, our Code of Business Ethics, the effective functioning of our Disclosure and Audit Committees, procedures in place to systematically identify matters warranting consideration of disclosure by the Disclosure Committee and verification processes for individual financial and non-financial metrics and information contained in annual and interim filings, including the financial statements, MD&As, Annual Information Forms and other documents and external communications. As required by CSA Multilateral Instrument 52-109, Certification of Disclosure in Issuers' Annual and Interim Filings, an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures was conducted, under the supervision of Management, including the President and CFO, as of September 30, 2006. The evaluation included documentation review, enquiries and other procedures considered by Management to be appropriate in the circumstances. Based on that evaluation, the President and the CFO have concluded that the design and operation of the system of disclosure controls and procedures was effective as of June 30, 2007. The President and CFO are also required, under Multilateral Instrument 52-109, to file certifications of our annual filings. Copies of these certifications may be found on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. Forward Looking Statements This report may contain forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties including statements regarding the outlook for the Company’s business and operational results. By nature, these risks and uncertainties could cause actual results to differ materially from what has been indicated. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from any forward-looking statement include, but are not limited to, failure to establish estimated resources and reserves, the grade and recovery of ore which is mined from estimates, capital and operating costs varying significantly from estimates, delays in or failure to obtain governmental, environmental or other project approvals and other factors including those risks and uncertainties identified above. The Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly or otherwise revise any forward-looking information as a result of new information, future results or other such factors which affect this information, except as required by law.

24.08.2007 - 14:17 Uhr Man Financial: Goldpreis steigt bis Jahresende über 700 USD MUMBAI (Dow Jones)--Der Weltmarktpreis für Gold wird nach Ansicht von Man Financial Global bis Ende des Jahres auf 700 bis 730 USD je Feinunze steigen. Tom Pawlicki, Edelmetallanalyst des Chicagoer Unternehmens, sagte am Rande der India International Gold Convention in Mumbai, das globale Wirtschaftswachstum werde wahrscheinlich im vierten Quartal 2007 hoch ausfallen, was die Goldpreise stützen dürfte. Auch die zu erwartende Dollarschwäche werde den Preis des Edelmetalls in die Höhe treiben. Bereits zu Beginn des kommenden Quartals werde Gold auf rund 680 USD/Feinunze anziehen, äußerte sich der Analyst überzeugt. DJN/DJG/bdz/24.8.2007
was die Woche bringt...es sollte sich bei VG zuspitzen! Die vergangene Woche hat mit der Performance von DOW und Co. eine gute Grundlage für den Wochenbeginn in Asien und danach in Europa geschaffen. Psychologie ist derzeit alles, bei jedem Minenwert wird nach dem DOW geschielt, ansonsten sowieso, man beachte einmal, wie die Charts von Dax und Tec minütlich den DOW nachbilden! Es kann und darf nicht sein, dass der DOW einbricht, einen Börsencrash zusätzlich zur Bankenkrise (hier wird noch einiges auf den Tisch kommen) würde Amerika derzeit nicht verkraften! Die FED wird es richten! Zumindest so lange, bis Bush und Co. ihr Amt gerettet haben! Unsere VG sollte also ein zumindest neutrales Umfeld haben! Was ganz entscheidend ist: VG hat ein sehr solides Finanzpolster, von dem die laufenden Explorationen bezahlt werden können. Gewinne aus der beginnenden Produzententätigkeit sollten dies fortführen! Kritisch wird es für die Explorer werden, bei denen größere Kapitalmaßnahmen anstehen, die in dieser Banken-Krisen-Situation evtl. schwer zu bekommen sein werden. Dazu werden wir definitiv nicht gehören! Und damit wären wir bei dem, was kommen muss: Der ständige Newsflow, von Meredith ab Mitte/Ende August angekündigt! Es ist gut denkbar, dass die jetzigen Finanzdaten als solides Fundament den Beginn dafür darstellen! Es sollten damit diese, spätestens nächste Woche die Ergebnisse folgen, die von Meredith kürzlich per E-Mail erwähnt wurden und derzeit pressemäßig aufgearbeitet werden. Wenn dies so eintritt, wovon ich ausgehe, sollte das ein goldener Herbst für VG, deren Kurs und damit auch für uns werden!
"Holt das Geld von der Bank!" "Rette sich wer kann!" Eichelburg dramatisiert in der Zeitlichkeit, tendenziell aber sollte man über das alles nachdenken...und seine persönliche Strategie entwickeln! Interessante Links für die Sonntagabend- oder Wochenanfang-Lektüre!
worauf warten die meisten hier seit mehr als einem Jahr? Natürlich den Produktionsbeginn...dass dieser nicht weiter verzögert wird! Deshalb: 1. Produktionsgenehmigung 2. Ankündigung des Produktionsbeginns Dies würde uns meines Erachtens am meisten nützen! Ich nehme aber an, dass zuerst ein Ressourcenupdate (im Sinne der Investoren) erfolgt! Grüßle ausm Ländle ins Ländle!
ich persönlich glaub erst an september aber gegen news in dieser woche hätt ich natürlich auch nichts .... kann mir auch nicht vorstellen das wir direkt nachrichten über nen produktionsstart bekommen .... ich denke das es wenn eine veröffentlichung neuer goldvorkommen sein wird! bei einer übernahme dürfte dann ein nettes sümmchen zusammen kommen .... also warten wir mal ab was kommt ... gedult zahlt sich ja bekanntlich aus ...
