Sierra Identifies Near-Term Potential at Cachi-Cachi

Download Report

Sierra Metals Inc. (TSX:SMT, BVL:SMT) reported results from brownfield exploration targeting the Escondida zone within the Cachi-Cachi Mine and the northern extension of the Esperanza orebody. Results identified a new discovery intersecting high grade silver, zinc and lead over good widths, as demonstrated by hole ESC-17-01 returning 94 g/t Ag, 3.41% Pb, 0.01% Cu, 7.91% Zn and 0.23 g/t Au over 7.6m as well as hole ESC-17-05 returning 104 g/t Ag, 5.83% Pb, 0.09% Cu, 10.59% Zn and 0.71 g/t Au over 3.8m. The new discovery (+300m in strike) highlights the possibility for further discoveries between Esperanza and Cachi-Cachi that could be added to production. The company expects to mine the Escondida zone in 2018 and remains focused on exploration. We anticipate a strong 2017 from Sierra as operations continue to improve and exploration advances, all of which should further enhance the company’s value. read more

SCA Discovers New Zones & Extends Mineralization at Karankasso

Download Report

Savary Gold Corp (TSXV:SCA) reported results from multiple targets tested during Phase 3 of the exploration program at its Karankasso JV Project (69.5% SCA/30.5% SWA), in Burkina Faso. 109 holes were drilled over 6,747m which tested the Karangosso Zone, Serakoro 1 West, Diosso South Zone, Kueredougou West Zone, Serakoro 1 Main, Central Auger Anamoly and S-Nosa Zone. Notably, drilling in Karangosso discovered two new zones (AC-17-029 and AC-17-036) and further extended mineralization in the south and north, both of which require follow-up. In the Serakoro 1 West, drilling also identified a new zone intersecting 2.78 g/t Au over 5m (AC-17-064). The company noted some targets were not successfully tested due to weather, as well as follow-up drilling was minimal as a result of lab delays. A resource update is expected to be completed at the end of Q3 2017, which will include drilling since the last resource update in Q4 2015 (Inferred 671k oz Au). Additional drilling is planned once the update is complete. Savary currently trades at a discount to peers (C$16/oz vs. peers at C$49/oz), we expect continued exploration success along with the planned resource update should benefit the company’s share price in the near term. read more

Ascot’s Drilling Focuses on New Subzones

Download Report  

Ascot Resources Ltd. (TSXV:AOT) reported results from 33 holes completed to date from its 2017 exploration program underway at its Premier property in British Columbia. Drilling continues to target the recently discovered higher grade Ben subzone, which intersected 80.90 g/t Au over 2.2m within 17.03 g/t Au over 11m in hole P17-1378. In addition, a newly identified subzone located below the Ben subzone continues to be defined. Once initial results are completed, the company is planning to infill both subzones to define resources. Step out drilling is also underway on the property in the Premier Mine area north and west of Sebakwe, as well as areas that may connect Big Missouri and Martha Ellen including the west extensions of Martha Ellen. Results from 50 holes are pending, 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$76-115/oz, a premium to peers at C$63/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$52/oz). We expect additional results from the ongoing drill program to demonstrate the projects large-scale potential. read more

AGLD’s Regional Trenching Program Yields Positive Results

Austral Gold Ltd. (TSXV:AGLD, ASX:AGD) reported initial trenching results from its Amancaya project in Chile. Results were highlighted 2.5m at 9.7 g/t Au and 6.9 g/t Ag at the newly discovered Nueva Vein and 2.3m at 8.1 g/t Au and 6.1 g/t Ag from the Nueva Sur Vein (Figure 1). The company believes that these newly discovered veins have the ability to yield a similar resource to the Central Vein which hosts 497k oz at 8.96 g/t AuEq (1.8 million tonnes). These new veins were discovered as part of the company’s regional trenching program on previously identified targets. The company plans to follow-up these results with a drill program, once the overall exploration program is complete. While these results highlight the longer-term potential of Amancaya, investors are likely to remain focused on the near-term as the company’s production profile is poised to increase with Amancaya ore starting to be processed. In our view, Austral is poised to re-rate towards similar scale peers, as it demonstrates its increased production potential.  read more

VIT Breaks Ground at Eagle; Gets a Head Start on 2018

Victoria Gold Corp. (TSXV:VIT) has officially commenced construction at Eagle with its early start, C$40 million Phase 1 construction program. The primary focus of the program is to position the company for full construction in 2018 by upgrading existing roads, expanding the camp and completing detailed engineering. As well, critical path earthworks projects for the valley leach facility and crusher are being completed. We note that the company is starting construction without the full funding in-place; however, with a cash balance of C$63 million (at May 31, 2017) and a commitment letter in place for a US$220 million debt facility, we estimate the company only requires additional funding of ~C$70-90 million. We expect continued exploration success to be a positive catalyst for the stock and should help demonstrate the exploration upside that exists. Victoria currently trades at a discount on a per ounces basis, or C$32/oz versus peers at C$52/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

SWA Grows South Houndé at Depth & Along Strike

Download Report

Sarama Resources (TSXV:SWA) reported final results for the H1 2017 drill program at South Houndé. The program was designed to test the depth and strike extensions of the high-grade shoots within the orebody to expand the existing open-pit resource and test the potential for underground mining. Deeper holes were highlighted by 10.4m at 3.96 g/t gold and 4.1m at 3.89 g/t gold and extended the MC and MM deposits to a depth of 500m and 550m respectively. This depth extension suggests an underground mining scenario could be possible. As well, some near surface air core drilling was completed in an effort to expand resources at surface, which was highlighted by 8m at 2.46 g/t gold. Sarama currently trades at C$12/oz, a steep discount to peers at C$49/oz. We expect that the ongoing exploration at South Houndé (50% interest) and Karankasso (30.5% interest), along with work at its ThreeBee project (100% interest), may provide the necessary catalysts for the stock to close the valuation gap to peers.  read more
