GT Gold Hits at Saddle North

Download Report

GT Gold Corp. (TSXV:GTT) has reported results from early reconnaissance drilling at its Saddle North target, located approximately 500m north of the high-grade Saddle South gold discovery on its 100%-owned Tatogga property. Drill hole TTD057 intersected high-grade gold veins with intercepts including 13.55 g/t Au over 2.58m and drill hole TTD064 intersected porphyry copper-gold over 18.4m grading 1.35 g/t Au, 1.42 g/t Ag, and 0.37% Cu. In addition to continued exploration at Saddle South, the company plans to now make Saddle North a focus for exploration in 2018 as well. The company has stated that it sees significant potential for a large high-grade gold-silver system at Saddle South and Saddle North, which is continuing to be supported by assay results from the drilling campaign.  read more

Comet Well Tenements Granted; Work Likely to Shift from Purdy’s

Download Report  

Novo Resources Corp. (TSXV:NVO) has announced that the company has been granted its tenements at Comet Well from the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety in Western Australia (DMIRS). It enables Novo to begin exploration work on Comet Well and satisfy its conditional farm-in rights. Once these commitments are satisfied in addition to other commitments, the company will have an 80% interest in the tenements via two joint ventures. As soon as the DMIRS approves Novo’s plan of work, the company plans to commence field work at Comet Well. We expect that once Novo is able to start fieldwork at Comet Well, the ongoing work at Purdy’s Reward is likely to be materially reduced as Novo has completed earning its 50% interest. In the near-term, we are expecting initial bulk sample results from Purdy’s Reward, which we expect to be a material catalyst for Novo’s share price.  read more

Download Report  

Mawson Resources Ltd. (TSX:MAW) has started a 15,000m winter diamond drill program at its Rompas-Rajapalot gold project in Finland, which will run from December 2017 to April 2018. The program is designed to extend known mineralization (near Palokas, Palokas South, South Rajapalot and Raja) to build a maiden resource as well as to test new exploration targets, specifically East Rompas, Hirvimaa and Rajapalot. A drill rig has been mobilized at East Rompas where the company is planning 2,000m of drilling. Once permitting is in place, more rigs are expected to be mobilized at Hirvimaa and Rajapalot in the second of half of January. The company is well-financed for exploration having recently closed a C$5.3 million financing. Results from the program will be an upcoming catalyst for the company, as it looks to build a maiden resource.  read more

Uranium: Glow at the End of the Tunnel?

Download Report

The uranium industry has experienced a difficult 5-10 years, from the peak of the bull market in 2007 to the financial crisis in 2008 and then the Fukushima incident in 2011, the price has gone from a peak of $136/lb U3O8 to a low of $18/lb U3O8 in November last year. Recently, the spot price has been hovering just above last November’s 11-year low at $20/lb U3O8. With the spot price still far below the industry’s average cost of production of ~$40/lb U3O8 (2015) one of two things is likely to happen, either the price stays where it is and the trend of supply destruction continues or the price rises to a level that incentivizes producers to operate, ensuring a robust supply pipeline for one of the world's most relied upon sources of energy. It is important to note that there is no substitute for uranium in fission reactors and uranium only represents ~3-5% of nuclear power plant costs. At $20/lb U3O8, some of the lowest cost producers in the world are losing money and have elected to reduce production or put operations on care and maintenance, and we can be certain that no new mines are likely to be built at these price levels. Therefore, as a result of the inelasticity of uranium demand, we expect that with reduced supply it is only a matter of time before we see significant positive momentum in the uranium price.  read more

Ascot Completes 2017 Drill Program; Plans for 2018

Download Report  

Ascot Resources Ltd. (TSXV:AOT) has completed the 2017 drill program at its Premier property, which totaled 118,800m (379 holes). The company reported the final set of results from 40 holes, targeting the Northern Lights area as well as reconnaissance drilling at Big Missouri-Martha Ellen areas, which requires additional exploration to determine potential continuity. Results were highlighted by 10.66 g/t Au over 4.70m (Northern Lights West zone – P17-1570), and 5.87 g/t Au over 17.4m (Ben Subzone – P17-1580). The company is finalizing its drill program for 2018, targeting infill drilling at Big Missouri, Northern Lights and Premier as well as other high priority targets. Final details of the program will be released along with an updated resource estimate expected in Q1 2018. Exploration results continue to highlight the potential for a large high-grade underground resource (2-3 million oz Au) at the past producing Premier mine. This implies a current valuation of C$65-98/oz, a premium to peers at C$65/oz, which is likely warranted because of the high grades, existing infrastructure and other resources. We note that based on the current lower-grade resource Ascot trades at a discount to peers (C$44/oz). We expect the upcoming resource update (Q1 2018) along with drilling in 2018 to demonstrate the projects potential. read more
