RCKS Charts: AMI

Download Report  

In this edition of RCKS Charts, Keith has evaluated AuRico Metals Inc. (TSX:AMI). AMI has been in a positive long-term uptrend dating back to January 2016, as seen by its rising trendline and 200dma. The trendline has provided solid support on pullbacks along the way. Most recently AuRico, after rallying to a new all-time high at C$1.43, has begun to consolidate those gains. This is a normal development during an upleg and suggests more upside to follow. The rising weekly momentum provides additional support for higher objectives. The next upside target is the top of the trend channel at C$1.55-1.60. Additional higher targets are also possible. Support lies across C$1.32-1.33 then C$1.25. The consolidation provides opportunity to add or establish new positions. (Figure 1) read more

Site Visit: AuRico Gearing Up to Initiate Construction

Download Report  

Last week we visited AuRico Metals Inc.’s (TSX:AMI) Kemess Project in northern British Columbia. The existing infrastructure at Kemess was as impressive as it was a year ago when we last visited the site. Since that last visit the company has checked off major project milestones at Kemess including the receipt of an Environmental Assessment Certificate for Kemess Underground (“KUG”), a signed Impact Benefits Agreement with the Tse Keh Nay First Nations for KUG, a Preliminary Economic Assessment on neighbouring deposit Kemess East (“KE”), and the submittal of permit applications for KUG. The Company has also added key hires to their project management team over the past few months as, pending permits being received in Q2-2018, it will look to initiate construction at KUG by July 2018. As was the case a year ago, we continue to believe Kemess remains undervalued within AuRico. read more

AMI Ups 2017 Guidance for Second Time This Year

Download Report

AuRico Metals Inc. (TSX:AMI) reported Q2 2017 financial results and increased its annual royalty revenue to US$10.5-11.0 million from US$9.5-10.4 million. The increase in revenue guidance was due to an updated reserve estimate from Kirkland Lake Gold’s (TSX:KL) Fosterville Gold Mine by 110% to 1.03 million oz Au. In Q2, royalty revenues reached a record high of US$2.8 million, for a total of US$5 million (US$2.2 million in Q1 2017) year to date. The company remains focused on advancing Kemess East and Kemess Underground, planning a combined FS for mid-2018. Drill results for Kemess East are expected to be available in Q4 2017, with an updated resource estimate to follow in Q1 2018. As well, at Kemess Underground, permitting and engineering work are to be advanced for early construction in H1 2018. We believe the company is well positioned to unlock the value of Kemess. Using AuRico’s updated guidance the company trades at ~16.6-17.7x royalty EBITDA, versus peers at 16.4x (2017e EBITDA). This implies the market is ascribing Kemess negligible value, which in our view should be worth ~C$100-125 million as compared to stand alone development stage peers. read more

AMI’s Fosterville Royalty Continues to Add Value

Download Report

AuRico Metals Inc. (TSX:AMI) provided an update on its 2% NSR royalty on Kirkland Lake Gold’s (TSX:KL) Fosterville Gold Mine after the company announced mineral reserves increased by 110% to 1.03 million oz Au. Grades also significantly improved to 17.9 g/t Au from 9.8 g/t Au, an 83% increase. Q2 2017 production at Fosterville was 77,069 oz Au, a record for the company and we expect the successful quarter to be reflected in AuRico’s Q2 2017 financials, as well as aid in meeting AuRico’s revenue guidance of US$9.5-US$10.4 million for 2017. AuRico’s Fosterville royalty remains an important asset in the company’s royalty portfolio and Kirkland Lake’s exploration success continues to increase its value. read more

Could AMI's Kemess have a +20-year Mine-Life or Produce >400k AuEq per Year?

Download Report

AuRico Metals Inc. (TSX:AMI) released promising results of a preliminary economic assessment (PEA) completed at its Kemess East project (KE), located ~1km east of its Kemess Underground project (KUG) in British Columbia. On a stand-alone basis, the KE PEA depicts an annual production averaging 222k oz AuEq/year, over a 12-year mine life with economics similar to the KUG project. Because the PEA is solely for KE, it does not account for what the combined project could be. In our view, the combined project is likely to have a greater than 20-year mine-life or a production profile in excess of 400k oz AuEq per year starting in year 3. While it is early days and many combinations are possible, we believe this PEA highlights the strategic and option value of Kemess. However, we also believe, the market continues to ascribe Kemess a negligible value providing investors an opportunity.  read more

AMI Signs IBA on Kemess

Download Report

AuRico Metals Inc. (TSX:AMI) has signed an Impact Benefits Agreement (IBA) with the Tse Keh Nay (TKN) First Nations, advancing the Kemess Underground project. Including the recently completed Environmental Assessment for the Kemess Underground project, we view these steps positively and should help unlock the project’s value. Using AuRico’s guidance the company trades at ~15.0-17.0x royalty EBITDA, versus peers at 16.9x (2017e EBITDA). This implies the market is ascribing Kemess negligible value, which in our view should be worth ~C$100-125 million as compared to stand alone development stage peers. read more

AMI Ups 2017 Guidance; Kemess Remains Undervalued

Download Report

AuRico Metals Inc. (TSX:AMI) reported Q1 2017 financial results and increased its royalty revenue guidance for 2017 from US$8.0-US$8.4 million to US$9.5-US$10.4 million. The increase in guidance was driven by Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (TSX:KL) increasing its production guidance at Fosterville (was 140-145k oz Au, now 200-225k oz Au). AuRico is continuing to advance Kemess with ongoing permitting, a planned 12km drill program at Kemess East and Offset zones as well as a planned PEA to demonstrate the economic potential of Kemess East. We believe the company is well positioned to unlock the value of Kemess. Using AuRico’s updated guidance the company trades at ~14.3-16.2x royalty EBITDA, versus peers at 16.2x (2017e EBITDA). This implies the market is ascribing Kemess negligible value, which in our view should be worth ~C$100-125 million as compared to stand alone development stage peers. read more
