AEM Invests in Otis; Affirms Potential of Kilgore

Download Report

Otis Gold Corp. (TSXV:OOO) announced a private placement with Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. (TSX:AEM, NYSE:AEM) for C$5.047 million to fund working capital and exploration at Otis’ Kilgore gold project in Idaho. The financing consists of 14.42 million common shares priced at a C$0.35/sh which represents a 12.9% premium to the prior day’s close. As a result of the transaction, Agnico Eagle would own ~9.95% of Otis on a non-diluted basis. In conjunction with the financing, Agnico Eagle and Otis are to enter into an investor rights agreement where Agnico Eagle has the right to participate in subsequent financings to maintain its 9.95% interest in Otis. The transaction is expected to close on February 28. In our view, this strategic investment by Agnico Eagle provides confidence for investors and supports our view on the Kilgore project’s technical merits and upside potential. We believe the market does not appear to fully account for Kilgore’s likely resource growth over the current 820k oz Au (47.5M tonnes @ 0.53 g/t Au) resource (indicated + inferred) as indicated by recent drill results and we discussed in a previous post. Coupled with the project being located in a stable jurisdiction in the vicinity of infrastructure, we expect the pending resource update (Q2 2017) and PEA (Q3 2017) to be important catalysts for the company, allowing Otis, which currently trades at C$38/oz, to close the valuation gap to peers (C$47/oz). read more

Otis' Drill Results Highlight Likely Resource Growth

Download Report  

Otis Gold Corp (TSXV:OOO) announced results from the 12 final drill holes from its 2016, ~10km (40 holes) drill program the company completed at its wholly owned Kilgore gold project in Idaho. These results returned a weighted average grade of 1.16 g/t Au over 29.2m and were highlighted by 1.79 g/t Au over 128.0m, including 11.96 g/t Au over 7.6m (16 OKC-353). The width and grade of these results, along with the balance of the 2016 program suggests to us that the current 820k oz Au (47.5M tonnes @ 0.53 g/t Au) resource (indicated + inferred) is poised to grow with the planned H1 2017 update. This likely resource growth does not appear to be priced into Otis’ current valuation as it trades at C$33/oz versus peers at C$40/oz. In our opinion, the Kilgore project’s likely resource growth along with the project’s location (stable jurisdiction, proximity of infrastructure) should allow Otis to close the valuation gap to peers.  read more
