McCunn is a sharp operator. When a gold producer turns its focus away from searching for ounces in favour of creating cash, it allows the company to leverage the current gold bull environment rather than looking for potential that may go unfulfilled. Ounces in the ground are all well and good, but free cash flow gives a company options. This has been reflected in Galiano Gold's share price recently: it is up 50% since when we last spoke in June.
Galiano Gold used to be known as Asanko Gold. The company has established itself as a mid-tier gold producer having started production in 2016 at its Ghanaian gold mine: Asanko. The gold mine is operated in a 50:50 JV with Gold Fields (JSE, NYSE: GFI). It is throwing off around 250,000oz gold pa, solidifying the company's status as an established mid-tier gold miner.
