Interview with Stewart Dickson, Non-Executive Director of Trans-Siberian Gold (LON: TSG)
Trans-Siberian Gold is an established gold producer and has been in production for 9 years. Dickson regards Trans-Siberian Gold as a stable 40,000oz dividend-paying producer. Trans-Siberian Gold is listed on AIM with a portfolio of Russian assets. The 7-person board has direct experience with mining operations in Russia.
Is the reputation of Russia problematic? Dickson claims there are myths and misconceptions. He remarks that Russia has a low sovereign risk based on 3 keys areas of risk: security of assets, ability to repatriate capital and staff safety. Russia has no history of expropriating mining assets ever. Investors need to decide whether they feel comfortable with Russia as a gold mining jurisdiction. Dickson remarks that gold is a strategic asset for the Russian government, and the Far East of Russia is underdeveloped and prospective.
