Newmarket Gold Inc (TSX:NMI) released underground drill results from the Harrier South system at its Fosterville gold mine. The results should allow
the company to upgrade existing resources into reserves and support the company’s current valuation and drive a mild re-rating. However, the results
feature a few good intersections and with investors taking an increased interest in gold following last week’s Brexit vote, we expect the stock to
react favourably today.
Drill results highlighted by 22.13 g/t Au over 3.33m (UDH1559) at Harrier (Figure 1). Other highlight holes from the Harrier gold system
at the Fosterville Gold mine included 10.30 g/t Au over 3.27m (UDH1596), 13.46 g/t Au over 2.25m (UDH1606), 10.78 g/t Au over 4.57m, 11.99g/t Au over
3.39m (UDH1575), 14.25g/t Au over 3.59m (UDH1593) and 16.6g/t Au over 3.05m (UDH1619). Overall, based on the estimated true widths provided the results
returned an uncut weighted average grade of 7.95 g/t over 1.75m. While this compares favourably to the current Measured and Indicated resource grade
at Fosterville 4.39 g/t Au, considering the relatively narrow true width, the results are likely best characterized as in line to slightly positive.
Results support current valuation, could drive mild re-rating. Newmarket is trading at 4.6x 2017 EBITDA and 1.45x NAV, versus peers
at 6.7x and 1.59x, respectively. In our view, these results are likely to see the conversion of M&I resources into reserves, suggesting a mine-life
extension likely which supports the current valuation and could drive a mild re-rating.
Results timely, as good news should be very good for gold stocks this week. Following the Brexit vote last week, there has been renewed
market interested in gold and gold equities as a result of increased uncertainty and reduced confidence in currencies. As a result, we expect these
results to provide positive momentum for the Newmarket’s share price.
