Beaconsfield Gold NL has finalised an $8.2 million capital raising - the working capital raised will secure the completion of both the re-commissioning at the Beaconsfield Mine and the corporate restructure of Allstate Explorations NL


company releases its Preliminary Final Report

letter sent to ALX shareholders by BCD says that under their Offer shareholders will receive an upfront payment of 1.5 cents per fully paid share and 0.1 cents per partly paid share, together with a deferred payment of 2.5 cents per fully paid share, payable should cumulative gold production from the Beaconsfield Mine attributable to Allstate under the Beaconsfield Mine Joint Venture of 30,000 ounces subsequent to 1 January 2007 be achieved - no deferred payment will be payable in respect of partly paid shares

Beaconsfield Gold NL lodges with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission and serves on Allstate Explorations NL ("Allstate") the Bidder's Statement for its off- market takeover offer ("Offer") for all the issued shares in Allstate not presently owned by Beaconsfield Gold - the offer is identical to that recently agreed with Newmont Australia Limited ("Newmont") for its shareholding in Allstate, being 4.0 cents per fully paid share and 0.1 cent per partly paid share


the Beaconsfield Gold group files a claim in the Supreme Court of Victoria claiming damages of $45.5 million arising from the insurer's refusal to provide indemnity in breach of the terms of the policy (under their business interruption insurance policy following the 25 April 2006 incident and the temporary closure of the Beaconsfield Mine)


Beaconsfield Gold has acquired the majority shareholding in Allstate held by Newmont for 4.0 cents per fully paid share and 0.1 cents per partly paid share - Beaconsfield Gold will now proceed with a takeover offer to all remaining minority Allstate shareholders on the same terms accepted by Newmont - Beaconsfield Gold anticipates that the offer will be made within three weeks or before 21 May 2007


ALX announces further progress towards the full resumption of gold production at the Beaconsfield Mine in Tasmania


Beaconsfield Gold provides an update - it is now providing loan funds to the Allstate group during the re-start phase at the mine and Beaconsfield Gold executives now manage the Allstate group and the Beaconsfield Mine on a day-to-day basis - Beaconsfield Gold will now be able to design and carry out an extensive regional exploration program at Beaconsfield


increased mining operations have been given the go-ahead at the Beaconsfield Mine by the relevant safety authority in Tasmania and production of gold bullion from the ore treatment plant is expected shortly

the company emerges from administration - ordinary unsecured creditors are expected to receive 100 cents in the dollar (Beaconsfield Gold has provided a loan to Allstate to enable Allstate's unsecured trade creditors to receive 100% of their outstanding claims - Macquarie Bank, the secured creditor of the Allstate group, has restructured its banking arrangements and agreed to a standstill period during which the Allstate group will not be required to deliver gold production into its hedge book or repay its other liabilities to the bank)


Beaconsfield Gold has previously announced that agreement has been reached with Newmont Australia Limited ("Newmont") to acquire Newmont's 57.2% shareholding in Allstate for approximately $1.4 million, which will take Beaconsfield Gold's total shareholding in Allstate to 82.8% - Allstate will shortly convene a general meeting to seek the approval of the minority shareholders of Allstate for this transaction - if the acquisition is approved, Beaconsfield Gold has agreed to make an immediate takeover offer to all remaining minority Allstate shareholders on the same terms accepted by Newmont


Beaconsfield Gold has made a proposal to restructure the Allstate Explorations NL group - the Deed Administrator of the Allstate group has released an announcement, stating that he intends to convene an Allstate Creditors' Meeting on 27 February 2007 to recommend the acceptance of the proposal from Beaconsfield Gold - subject to approval by the Allstate creditors, the proposal will result in Beaconsfield Gold providing a loan to Allstate to enable unsecured trade creditors to receive 100% of their outstanding claims and the retirement of the Deed Administrator - Allstate will then be returned to the control of its directors


Beaconsfield Gold advises that having agreed to acquire Newmonts 57.2% holding in Allstate and agreed to purchase Allstate debts with a face value of $48m (for $2.85m), it will negotiate a commercial agreement with Allstate's only secured creditor (Macquarie Bank) to restructure Allstate and bring it out of administration


company provides an update on safety matters


reports that restructuring negotiations between the Beaconsfield mine joint venture partners, Allstate Explorations and Beaconsfield Gold, continue

the Sydney Morning Herald reports on Federal Court action involving the bank and Allstate's administrators, Michael Ryan and Tony Woodings from Perth insolvency firm Taylor Woodings - Mr Ryan and Mr Woodings have been ordered to appear and answer questions under oath at a public examination and Macquarie has been ordered to produce documents - the orders have been frozen pending a challenge to their validity due to be heard tomorrow and Wednesday - the orders were obtained by an Allstate shareholder, Simon Evans, after a July decision by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission authorising him to seek them

The Allstate group of companies owns 51.51% of the BMJV and, via Allstate Explorations NL (subject to deed of company arrangement), manages both the BMJV and the Beaconsfield Mine"


it may be several months before a decision can be made on the future of the Beaconsfield Gold Mine - Mine Manager Matthew Gill today confirmed it would take a minimum of two months to work through the safety and operational issues to satisfy the requirements of both mine management, Workplace Standards and the Coroner

at the AGM, shareholders are angry with the "deal" with Macquarie Bank, whereby Macquarie gets first bite at $77.5 million of the profits generated by Allstate's 52% of Beaconsfield - also the chairman advises the company could remain under the control of the deed administrators for many years - they have the authority to trade the company for as long as, in their discretion, it is in the best interests of the creditors - they also have power to realise the assets of the company

deed administrator lodges 2003 accounts with ASX - catching up - well done

deed administrators file heavily qualified financial statements for the years to 30 June 2001 and 2002 - they are not all that helpful because even the 2002 report is a year out of date - the claim against the design and construction engineers (see 29/10/2002 below) has been to arbitration (along with counter claims) and a decision is awaited - for further details please see the actual release at


last substantive release to the market 28 Jan 03 - we have repeatedly asked Michael Ryan one of the administrators for an update - he has been assuring us for some time he would provide one but has failed to do so

administrator indicates efforts continue with the $20m litigation claim against the design and construct engineers of the joint venture's processing plant - an arbitration hearing will take place about June 2003


administrators advise that the company has continued to trade on and confirms that certain variations were made to the DOCA following creditors meetings on 17 December 2001 and 19 March 2002 (see further details below) - there has been no return as yet to the secured creditor and administrators believe there is little, if any, equity that will be available to shareholders


Newmont Mining Corporation became a substantial shareholder with an interest of 56.55%


further DOCA amendments provide for the sale by Allstate to Macquarie Bank Limited of certain debts (evidently totalling $77 million) that were owing to Allstate by two of Allstate's subsidiaries - consideration for the sale of these debts (evidently $300,000) was to be distributed in accordance with the terms of the DOCA, but it was not to be used to pay any dividend to Macquarie nor to pay the deed administrators' remuneration, costs, fees or expenses (this followed a creditors meeting on 19 March 2002 - this was all disclosed to the market on 29 October 2002)


DOCA varied to provide for the company and the mine to trade-on; for the deed administrators to have discretion to sell Allstate's assets; for confirmation that the DOCA did not affect any charges or liens held by creditors of the company nor Macquarie's ability to appoint a receiver and manager; and related matters (market informed 29 October 2002)


directors advise improved levels of gold production are being achieved on a fairly consistent basis


after considering various options including possible sale of the Beaconsfield mine, decision now made to withdraw the project from the market for sale and continue to operate it


creditors resolve to enter into Deed of Company Arrangement allowing the company to be administered to maximise either returns to creditors and members, or the chances of the company continuing as a going concern (the DOCA evidently has no time frame)


BankWest confirms that last week it appointed G Trevor of Ferrier Hodgson as the Receiver and Manager of Beaconsfield Gold NL


Beaconsfield Gold announces it would welcome the entry of a financially strong experienced mining company to the Joint Venture which operates the Beaconsfield mine


company indicates that it wants to ensure the continued operation of the Beaconsfield mine


M Ryan and T Woodings of Taylor Woodings appointed administrators following board resolution that the company is insolvent or likely to become so
