AQA Announces Stream & Equity Financing with Osisko

Download Report  

Aquila Resources Inc. (TSX:AQA) has announced a financing transaction with Osisko Gold Royalties (TSX:OR) whereby Osisko has agreed to commit $65M to Aquila through a $10M private placement and a $55M gold stream purchase agreement. The initial $17.5M in funding should provide AQA sufficient liquidity to complete all pre-construction activities, while the balance of the stream payment ($47.5M) is likely to be a good start for the $261M of pre-production capital. Aquila is now well positioned to complete its feasibility and start construction once the final permit has been granted.  read more

Tinka Increases Zinc Resources by 130%

Download Report

Tinka Resources Ltd. (TSXV:TK) has announced a Mineral Resource update on its 100% owned Ayawilca zinc-indium-silver-lead sulphide deposit in Peru, which includes ~15,000m of drilling completed so far in 2017. The company updated both the zinc and tin inferred resources on the property, which are now estimated to be 42.7Mt of 7.3% ZnEq and 10.5Mt of 0.70% SnEq, respectively (Figure 1 and Figure 2). This resource update reflects an increase of 130% in contained zinc and an increase of 60% in contained tin compared to the last resource update in May 2016.  read more

RDS Intersects Improved Grades in Widths

Download Report

Radisson Mining Resources Inc. (TSXV:RDS) reported drill intersections of 14.6 g/t Au over 6 m and 7.4 g/t Au over 6 m at depth of 218 m and 242.5 m, respectively, in hole OB-17-52 (Figure 1 and Figure 2). The company reported results from 6 holes totaling 2,822m of drilling with assays pending for 3,310m (10 holes). Other notable drill results from this press release include 45m of 1.3 g/t Au from 371m of depth (hole OB-17-44). These results are a part of the company’s 20,000m drill program at the O’Brien project along the Cadillac Break. This press release continues to support and confirm the vertical and lateral continuity of high-grade gold intercepts within low grade mineralized envelopes on the 36E zone. At C$50/oz, Radisson trades closely to peers at C$42/oz; however, this does not properly reflect the recent discovery of the Vintage zone, or the expected resource increase with the pending update (Q1 2018). We note the company continues to be actively exploring in the sediments around the Vintage zone (results pending) and near the current resource. read more

FCC’s Sampling Yield’s Impressive Cobalt Grades

Download Report

First Cobalt Corp. (TSXV:FCC) has announced sampling results from grab samples taken from muckpiles at the historic Silver Banner mine at the northern part of the company’s Cobalt Camp in Ontario. The company highlighted grades of up to 1.14% Co from a vein-type mineralization, which contained silver and nickel mineralization as well. The relationship between the cobalt, silver and nickel is comparable to that of the large mineralized systems within the Cobalt Camp. These grab samples continue to reflect the potential for the presence of a broader cobalt mineralization in the camp that has been overlooked by previous exploration. We would also highlight that we continue to believe the company’s unique attributes, including its land position and infrastructure are likely to see First Cobalt trade at a premium to other cobalt exploration peers, pro-forma. Besides pending drill results (53 holes pending assay), important upcoming catalysts are likely to include planned metallurgical test results and the completion of the planned mergers.

ANX Recovers 92% from Argyle Sample

Download Report

Anaconda Mining Inc. (TSX:ANX) reported the results of metallurgical testing on a 25kg sample of blended core samples with an average grade of 2.7 g/t Au from the Argyle discovery. The sample was able to achieve a flotation recovery of 97.3% and a leach recovery of 94.5% for a combined recovery of 91.9%. The company’s objective was to determine the metallurgical characteristics of the Argyle mineralization and the company was successful in verifying its compatibility with the circuit at the Pine Cove Mill and confirms that the mill will not have to be modified in order to process Argyle ore. Based on our preliminary estimates, we believe that at its current market cap (C$24.8 million), investors are either paying for Point Rousse (~value of C$30-50 million based on our preliminary DCF) or Goldboro (~ value of C$41.5 million based on C$50/oz) suggesting good value at current levels. In our view, the upcoming PEA for Goldboro, is likely to be an important catalyst for Anaconda as it should allow investors to better understand the potential of this asset. Following that, operations later in F2018 (year-end May 31) should see production and cash flow increases as mining at Point Rousse moves to the higher-grade Stog’er Tight deposit. In our view, both these catalysts have the ability to cause the market to ascribe a fair value to both projects.  read more

VIT Provides Updates on Eagle Phase 1 Construction

Download Report

Victoria Gold Corp. (TSXV:VIT) has reported an update on its Eagle Project Phase 1 De-Risking Program, on its Dublin Gulch project in the Yukon. The objective of the $40M 2017 program was to de-risk the earthwork areas of the capital budget and prepare the construction site for Phase 2. Phase 1 activities included heap leach embankment preparation, control pond construction, project access road and bridge upgrades, pioneering of site roads to crusher and recovery plant, expansion of camp to 250-person capacity, advancing detailed engineering and securing pricing on long-lead items. Management stated that Phase 1 was successful in de-risking the project. We note that the company started construction without the full funding in-place; however, with a cash balance of C$43 million (at August 31, 2017) and a commitment letter in place for a US$220 million debt facility, we estimate the company requires additional funding of ~C$70-100 million. Victoria Gold currently trades at a discount on a per ounce basis, or C$31/oz versus peers at C$46/oz, which we believe does not take into account the exploration potential of the Dublin Gulch property or that the project has just transitioned from shovel ready to under-construction.  read more

NVO Announces Strategies for Non-Core Assets

Download Report  

Novo Resources Corp. (TSXV:NVO) has announced its strategy for its ancillary assets including the company’s 100% owned Tuscarora property in Nevada and several tenements in Marble Bar, Western Australia. Novo has signed an option agreement with American Pacific Mining (“APM”) where it has the option to acquire the Tuscarora property’s 24 unpatented mining claims in Nevada. American Pacific will initially pay to Novo C$375k and issue C$200k worth of shares to Novo once the company is listed on the CSE. Beginning on the one-year anniversary of American Pacific’s listing date, APM will be required to incur annual expenditures of $100k on the property. American Pacific will also grant Novo a 0.5% NSR, which can be repurchased for $500k. As for Novo’s tenements in Western Australia, further to forming a joint-venture with Calidus Resources Ltd. (ASX:CAI), the company will be issued 20M fully paid ordinary shares of Calidus upon the receipt of all necessary environmental approvals. This strategy allows Novo to focus on its Karratha projects, which represents the most value to the company. At Novo’s current share price, the market is pricing in a sizeable resource at Novo’s Karratha project, which based on the data to date, we view as very possible. However, additional data, including additional diamond drilling to determine conglomerate thickness (ongoing) and assay results from the ongoing bulk samples and planned large diameter drilling (early 2018), is needed to fully understand this projects potential.  read more
