Wenn man ganz unten ist, sollte es eigentlich mal wieder rauf gehen. Die südafrikanischen Gold Fields haben harte Zeiten hinter sich. Die Energiekrise dort, Unfälle bei der Arbeit in den Minen, dann noch ein CEO-Wechsel. Und politisch ist's auch nicht das Gelbe vom Ei wenn man dort bestehen soll.-
Nur eben, mit viel, viel Geld unter dem Boden ist doch noch einiges zu machen...

[miningmx.com] -- SOUTH Africa's Financial Services Board (FSB) has given up chasing the man behind last year's hoax bid for Gold Fields, because he lives outside the regulator's jurisdiction of enforcement, Business Report said on Thursday.
"It's not very satisfactory, but that's the problem with foreign jurisdictions," said Gerhard van Deventer, the executive director of the FSB's directorate of market abuse (DMA).
Fourteen months ago, Roxford stirred the local market when, under the guise of Pastorini, he caused Gold Fields' market value to rise by R10 billion in one morning after a Bloomberg report said he was bidding for the gold producer.
The phony offer employed a modus operandi similar to that used in cases that led the US Securities and Exchange Commission to file complaints against Roxford, resulting in the financial penalty.
Roxford was found to have been behind fictitious bids for Sony, Zapata, Edgetech Services, Playboy Enterprises and PeopleSupport, with the aim of manipulating the share prices and inducing investors to buy stock. The Gold Fields bid was not included in the court case, even though the South African company is listed in New York.
Roxford failed to pitch up for the US hearing. He was said in court papers to be in Argentina, fearing arrest if he returned to the US.
