2. Volta Resources (VLTAF.PK) has a portfolio of quality gold exploration projects in Burkina Faso and Ghana, both mining-friendly West African jurisdictions with proven world-class gold deposits.

My analysis

There have been three different insiders buying and there have not been any insiders selling the shares during the past 30 days. The initial capital costs for the Kiaka Gold project are $609.7 million. The average annual gold production at Kiaka will be 340,000 ounces for 10.3 years mine life. The production start-up at Kiaka is expected in 2016. The company's current enterprise value is less than $8 per gold ounce in the ground. I have a long position in the stock currently.
