Ariana Resources (LON:AAU) announced on 2nd November that Chairman Michael De Villiers has now increased his holding in the company to over 3% with an on market purchase of 4.5m shares for around £45,000. Michael has been buying shares in the market on a regular basis but this was the largest single transaction we have seen to date.

As investors, Director purchases on market are always seen as the “acid test” in terms of management confidence in their own business and in this exclusive MiningMaven podcast interview Michael tells us in his own words why he believes that Ariana is at an inflection point right now and why he is putting his money where his mouth is. Essential listening for all investors.
