Directors of a publicly traded company have a wide variety of ways to get shares of their company cheaply - private placements, warrants, options, etc.... That's why it's a strong vote of confidence when these "insiders" buy shares of the company on the open market, especially when it's done in significant volume.

Around gold deposits often exists mineralisation with particularly high values of so-called pathfinder minerals. In the region around the famous Fosterville gold mine of Kirkland Lake in the Australian state of Victoria, antimony has proven to be the most important pathfinder mineral. High antimony values have always been a strong sign that high-grade gold mineralization is close at hand. This is the backdrop against which to read AIS Resources Limited's (TSX: AIS; FRA: 5YHA) recent announcement on pathfinder minerals at its Fosterville-Toolleen project about 10 kilometers east of Fosterville. IE, the measured antimony values exceed the norm and are so exceptionally high that AIS management took the precaution of checking with the laboratory again as to whether there was a measurement error. The laboratory ruled this out after checking again.
