Streetwise Reports spoke to Riley Gold Corp. CEO Todd Hilditch about how they will put “funds in the ground” following an oversubscribed private round.

Riley Gold Corp. (RLYG:TSX.V; RLYGF:OTCQB) is planning to advance its gold projects coming off the company’s recent CA$2.6-million capital raise through private placement, in which it issued 6,500,000 units at CA$0.40 per unit for project exploration and general working capital.

The company estimates that the bulk of the funds are for “in-the-ground work” to advance its two ongoing exploration projects: the Tokop Gold project located with the Walker Lane Trend, and the Pipeline West/Clipper project located in the Battle Mountain Eureka Trend.

Riley Gold Corporation is a junior exploration company focused on highly prospective gold assets in Nevada. Nevada is a top-ranked jurisdiction, one of the most gold-endowed states and the sixth largest gold-producing region in the world. The state is said to have a favorable geopolitical climate and a good workforce for mining. The company said it looks for strong indicators of prospects before honing in on a project.

Chief Executive Officer, Todd Hilditch, noted that recent offering was oversubscribed due to “the tight group of investors” who participate, and that “90% of the participants (in the recent private placement) are people we have done business with before…” over the course of the management team’s careers.

The seasoned management team, starting with Executive Chairman of the Board, William Lamb, has a track record of maximizing shareholder value during the exploration, development, and production phases in the mining life cycle. With 32 million shares outstanding, management’s interests are aligned with shareholders, Hilditch said, in that the management group currently owns close to a 20% stake in the tightly structured company.

Tokop Gold Project

Tokop is in late Phase I drilling stage. Tokop is located in the Walker Lane trend near other projects that are either currently in production or have been in the past, indicating a good jurisdiction for Riley’s project, he said. The results of the company’s mapping and sampling program identified high-grade gold.

“We like to use as many tools as possible…We have to check 3 to 4 boxes before we take a project on.” Historical work including favorable rock and chip channel sampling results, as well as previous successful drilling led Riley to acquire the Tokop project.

“We subsequently completed mapping (including veins at surface), initiated a 120-plus rock chip sampling program that returned high-grade gold at surface and then launched a maiden drill program. The first three holes targeted near-surface quartz veins, shears, and mineralized fault zones. The initial highlights indicated high-grade gold at surface and high-grade below surface, confirming that this a good project to further investigate.” The next step is to identify a broader target of opportunity in the Tokop Gold project. “We want to find the deposit and not just the veins,” he said.

Pipeline West/ Clipper Gold Project

Pipeline West, which is approximately 25 square kilometers, is earlier in its development cycle.

In the most gold-endowed regions, the big mining companies believe “the way to find another deposit is to draw a circle around the current one and go look,” says Hilditch. Fortuitously, the company’s second property, Pipeline West, adjoins the Pipeline Gold complex (and by extension the Cortex Complex) owned by Nevada Gold Mines JV, a joint venture of two of the world’s larger producers, Barrick Gold Corp. (ABX:TSX; GOLD:NYSE) and Newmont Corp. (NEM:NYSE).

Riley Gold’s property border is only 1,800 feet from one of Nevada Gold Mines’ deposits, Gold Acres, that has approximately 1 million ounces of 2.6 gpt gold, he said.  “We hope by proximity, there could be an extension of the gold zone in which the Nevada Gold Mines is producing from.”

The Pipeline West Project resides in the Battle Mountain Eureka region. “It is a great location for elephant hunting,” for large gold deposits, so a different exploration approach is required than the one used in Tokop. Rather than employing a sampling program, looking for gold traces at surface, the project will start this autumn with geophysics in order for the company to look for areas of structural weakness where fluid containing gold could have traveled.

The results from the geophysics will help identify targets for the starting point for a drilling program, he said. “We expect that our targets for spring/summer 2022 drilling will be 1,000 feet plus.”

Historically high gold prices have been fueling a push in the gold sector that has both pluses and minuses. "Having hundreds and hundreds of companies like us” with projects at the same point of their life cycle makes things more difficult for the company, such as staffing with enough qualified workers and pushing samples through the assay labs and getting timely results.

Teck Resources, a CA$26 billion company, is the 2nd largest steelmaking coal producer in the world. In its Investor Day presentation earlier this week it reiterated the long-term strength of the seaborne coking coal market. Colonial Coal is also 100% coking coal, with two valuable projects for sale in B.C., Canada.

On September 21st copper, zinc & steelmaking coal producer Teck Resources Ltd. (TECK:TSX; TECK:NYSE) held its annual investor day, a three-hour webcast highlighting very robust global demand for steel and the small number of critical materials essential in making it.

"However, steel is absolutely essential in building the very renewable power plants & electrified transportation systems the world needs to decarbonize."

 

 

 

 

Teck is the 2nd largest coking (metallurgical / met) coal producer in the world behind BHP. Anglo American is #3.

 

Teck’s investor day had been anxiously anticipated. A week earlier there was a rumor that the Company wanted to divest its steelmaking coal business due in part to (as per the rumor) pressure from shareholders & prospective investors calling for companies to dump coal.

A key takeaway from the event was that seaborne met coal (Teck’s specialty) will remain in high demand as several Asian countries, especially India, are building a substantial number of blast furnaces that can only be supplied by exporters like BHP, Teck & Anglo.

There’s no doubt that burning coal, be it thermal (used to generate electricity) or met (to make steel) is bad for the environment, producing greenhouse gases that are warming the planet.

However, steel is absolutely essential in building the very renewable power plants & electrified transportation systems the world needs to decarbonize.

In assessing steelmaking coal’s role in global warming it’s imperative that we separate it from thermal coal. Thermal coal is already being fazed out — readily & cost-effectively — replaceable by nuclear, hydro, wind, solar, biomass, and geothermal sources.

Teck is a prime beneficiary of thermal coal’s demise. According to steelmaker ArcelorMittal’s website,

Each new MW of solar power requires 35 to 45 metric tonnes of steel. Each MW of wind power requires 120 to 180 tonnes. Utility-scale wind farms typically produce a 100 to 300 MW, and up to 1,000 MW. ” Annually, hundreds — eventually thousands — of giant wind farms will be installed.

Steelmakers have been trying to diminish the power that met coal, coke & iron ore producers hold by finding alternatives to blast furnace steel fabrication. That initiative has only grown with increased environmental concerns. Yet, 70% of steel still comes from 20th century blast furnaces.

New technologies are on drawing boards, but none are expected to make meaningful inroads anytime soon. New methods have their own carbon footprints to contend with. Instead, new technology is being deployed at the steel plant level.

 

teck

Carbon capture and other methods (such as the advent of Li-ion battery powered container ships) offer no silver bullets, but they’re reasonably affordable & fairly effective. Unsurprisingly, Teck is a big fan of carbon capture & fossil-free shipping!

Tens of trillions of dollars in debt-fueled economic stimulus packages in the 2020s alone will buy a staggering amount of steel, which will continue to consume vast amounts of met coal. There’s no practical, large-scale substitute.

"Teck is a big fan of carbon capture & fossil-free shipping."

Although I believe met coal should be given more slack, some good projects will, inevitably, fail to get funded or die on the permitting vine. This suggests that met coal prices are likely to remain stronger for longer. Teck forecasts the potential of a meaningful deficit in the seaborne market from 2025-2030.

According to Teck’s presentation, the 10-year avg. inflation-adj. met coal price is ~$180/Metric tonne (“Mt”). Fastmarkets lists four hard (and premium hard) met coals ranging in price from ~$336 to $601/Mt (Sept. 22nd), and averaging $475/Mt. That average price has quadrupled from its 2020 low!

teck

Will prices in the next 10 years average $180/Mt? No, my guess is prices might return to $225-$275/Mt.However, can steelmakers take the chance of multi-yr. stretches of $300-$400/Mt pricing? Vertical integration into met coal is a move that all steelmakers should seriously be considering.

Teck’s trailing 12-yr. normalized (adjusted) annual EBITDA {from presentation slides} is $2.2 billion. At a “new normal” avg. long-term met coal price of say $240/Mt, EBITDA would be closer to $2.95 billion = CA$3.75 billion.

In my view, the valuation of Teck’s steelmaking coal biz. in today’s bull market is > CA$12 billion. If a robust bidding war were to break out, with prices at, or near, all-time highs, I believe the transaction value could surpass CA$16 billion

Which other steelmaking material companies might be poised to benefit from Teck’s bullish vision of the future? One seemingly undervalued company is Colonial Coal International Corp. (CAD:TSX.V).

Colonial has two 100%-owned, PEA-stage met coal projects in B.C. Canada. One borders Teck’s Quintette project, the other is sandwiched between two of Anglo American’s projects. While Teck has met coal reserves of ~800M Mt, all in B.C., Colonial has resources (not reserves) of 695M Mt.

The Huguenot project is ~620 km north-northeast of Vancouver, close to the boundary with Alberta. Huguenot’s PEA contemplates an open-pit only scenario; 27-yr. mine life @ 2.7M Mt/yr., at a cost of ~US$110.4/Mt & upfront cap-ex of US$303M. At current met coal prices, I estimate 2.7M Mt/yr. could generate ~CA$775M/yr. in EBITDA.

Colonial’s other project, Gordon Creek, is planned as an underground mine; 30-yr. life @ 1.9M Mt/yr., at a cost of ~US$81/Mt & upfront capital of US$300M. At current met & PCI coal prices, I estimate 1.9M Mt/yr. could generate ~CA$504M/yr. in EBITDA.

teck

Therefore, combined EBITDA could be ~CA$1.3 billion/yr. (at currently sky-high pricing). Having said that, it would likely take a buyer at least five years to approach full-scale production.

Assuming a 40% retreat in pricing, annual EBITDA would still be ~CA$774M. If one applies a 4x EBITDA multiple on that CA$774M, the indicative future value of Colonial could be ~CA$3.1 billion, (less CA$766m in initial cap-ex), equals $2.33 billion.

Discounting that figure back five years at 8%/yr., nets ~CA$1.6 billion.

I believe a well-funded steelmaker, miner, commodity trader or OEM could afford CA$1.5-$2.0 billion for Colonial’s 695M resource tonnes.

Colonial is run by experts in met coal & in mining, and by people with meaningful work experience in western Canada. For the past two years, the Company has been engaged in a process to divest one or both of Huguenot / Gordon Creek. They’ve retained a number of investment bankers to assist.

Soon after the sales process began, COVID-19 struck. India had a particularly difficult time, and Indian groups are thought to be among the most interested in Colonial’s assets. Indians, along with Chinese, Japanese, Australian, Korean, Russian, Canadian & American groups!

 

"[The] first bid will refocus everyone’s eyes on the size of the prize."

Understandably, COVID-19 has slowed the sales process considerably. In my opinion, it might still take months before one or both projects are sold. However, an opening indication of interest, a bid, even a “stink bid,” could come at any time. That first bid will refocus everyone’s eyes on the size of the prize.

 

teck

It seems odd that with Colonial trading at CA$1.05/shr., a suitor’s bid of say US$0.75 per resource tonne — considered by most to be too low — could vault the share price above CA$3/shr.

Colonial has 183.4M fully-diluted shares, no debt & ~CA$6M of fully-diluted cash. The Company is valued in the market @ US$0.21 per resource tonne.

Some shareholders are quick to point to comparable transactions and record high met coal prices to suggest > US$2-$4/Mt in the ground is called for. That’s certainly possible, but to be prudent, readers should not base investment decisions on best case scenarios. US$1.50/Mt equates to CA$7.25/shr. (NOT a price target)

Some of the same buyers from 2011-12, but significantly more steelmakers, coal / copper / iron ore miners, commodity trading firms (like Mitsui, Mitsubishi & Glencore), and perhaps even large automakers — are watching Colonial. Perhaps it’s time for giant Indian & Chinese thermal coal-heavy players to diversify into met?

There are only a handful of high-quality met coal resources of this size (695M Mt in total) anywhere in the world, no less in a great mining / met coal jurisdiction like B.C. Canada, and actively for sale.

It might be unwise for a Major steel company to allow Colonial’s projects to be sold too cheaply to a competitor, possibly giving that competitor a meaningful, long-term cost advantage.

"Retail investors have a rare opportunity."

teck

Retail investors have a rare opportunity. Trading volume is not consistently large enough to allow institutions to build multi-million share positions. But, investors looking for thousands of shares can get it done.

Make no mistake, an investment in Colonial’s stock offers a high-risk, high-reward, high share price volatility proposition. Readers are reminded not to invest more than they can afford to lose.

If one agrees that poor trading liquidity, the drawn out sales process (largely due to COVID-19), and the word COAL in the Company’s name might be driving significant undervaluation, then it’s time to take a closer look at Colonial Coal.

Why This Uranium Junior With Projects in Argentina Deserves Consideration by Investors

Blue Sky Uranium has "low-cost extraction prospects and local market opportunities in a market with high growth potential," a Globe Small Cap Research report noted.

With changing perceptions of nuclear energy in recent years, you could say that uranium is having a bit of a moment.

In keeping with the trend, Globe Small Cap Research concluded that Blue Sky Uranium Corp. (BSK:TSX.V; BKUCF:OTCQB; MAL2:FSE) is "worthy of active consideration and ongoing following for developments," according to a September 2021 research report.

The research firm provided an overview of the Canadian uranium company and the opportunity before it.

Globe Small Cap explained that Blue Sky Uranium is currently "proving the reserves, organizing operations and markets and devising plans to enter production" at its Amarillo Grande project, one of its two major mining areas in Argentina. To date, the company has made three discoveries at Amarillo Grande: Anit, Santa Barbara and, most recently, Ivana.

"Ultimately ... the world will increasingly rely on the uranium market, which means greater opportunity for Blue Sky."

 

The research firm highlighted that Blue Sky could produce uranium at relatively low costs at Ivana, a deposit the company estimates contains about 23,000,000 pounds (23 Mlb) of uranium and 12 Mlb of vanadium). Thus, Blue Sky intends to develop three prospective targets at Ivana: Ivana West, Ivana North and Ivana Central.

Because the uranium ore in those areas there sits about 25 meters below surface and in loose sand and gravel, drilling or blasting will not be needed to extract it, keeping down costs. Metallurgical testing has shown that initial processing of ore from Ivana is simple, thus, also lower in cost. Also, Ivana is close to a town, airport and seaport, so taking its product to market will not be costly either.

"The geology of the area is very similar to several of the most productive uranium mining operations in the world, located in Kazakhstan," wrote Globe Small Cap. "Mines in particular areas of Kazakhstan are able to extract uranium at below US$30 per pound, placing such operations in the bottom 25% of producers on a cost per pound basis."

During the summer, Globe Small Cap reported, the uranium company finished the first phase of its 4,500 meter drill program at Ivana. Results are pending but expected to expand the Amarillo Grande project. Blue Sky will use the data to identify areas of higher uranium concentration in the current drill area.

Globe Small Cap also pointed out that Blue Sky offers additional upside with its other potentially mineable target areas, including Ivana North and Ivana Central. The company is obtaining permits to drill at Ivana East and Cateo Cuatro. Further, drilling in 2017 showed a significant vanadium deposit present at Anit and potential mineralization as indicated by radiometric anomalies at Santa Barbara.

"The opportunity for Blue Sky in terms of vanadium production is significant in Argentina."

Also, the opportunity for Blue Sky in terms of vanadium production is significant in Argentina, as the country imports 100% of this metal. Vanadium demand by the steel industry, in which the metal is used as a strengthener, is increasing.

Also, Blue Sky has a second main uranium mining area in Argentina. In the Chubut province, it encompasses the Sierra Colonia, Tierras Coloradas, and Cerro Parva projects.

Globe Small Cap purported that global macroenvironmental factors are such that a uranium supply shortage is on the horizon. The OECD Nuclear Energy Agency and the International Atomic Energy Agency Project recently wrote in their "Red Book" that the world's need for uranium will increase 75% by 2040.

The impending supply-demand imbalance will be driven, Globe Small Cap Research wrote, by the world's expected increase in the use of nuclear power as more and more policymakers realize the industrial world needs it to deal with climate change. Already there are signs around the world of this shift in thinking, such as in Japan, which restarted several nuclear programs; in France, which is rethinking its nuclear power plant terminations; and in China, which is ramping up its addition of new nuclear power plants.

Ultimately, with this changing mindset, the world will increasingly rely on the uranium market, which means greater opportunity for Blue Sky and other uranium mining companies.

As for Argentina, the location of Blue Sky's projects, it does not have a domestic uranium supply and thus needs local, low-cost producers to supply its growing nuclear market. Blue Sky already is positioned to help meet that need, as it not only has projects in the country but also connections to the Argentine nuclear and steel industries and the South American mining industry.

"Blue Sky’s Amarillo Grande project in Rio Negro appears to be the first low-cost domestic uranium supplier in a position to take advantage of this opportunity," Globe Small Cap wrote.

Kenorland Minerals options up to 80% of its South Uchi project in Alaska, one of the company's eight assets, to mining major, Barrick Gold.

One of the ways that Kenorland Minerals Ltd. (KLD:TSX.V; 3WQO:FSE) creates value for shareholders is through partnerships with other mining companies for funding and exploration assistance, all to advance its projects.

The Canadian minerals explorer again just employed that strategy in that it partnered with and optioned its South Uchi gold project in Alaska to gold-copper major, Barrick Gold Corp. (ABX:TSX; GOLD:NYSE).

Kenorland granted Barrick the option to earn up to an 80% stake in its South Uchi project, as announced in a recent news release. To earn an initial 70% interest, Barrick must spend $6 million on mineral exploration at South Uchi in six years' time.

"The company is well funded."

 

 

Subsequently, the two companies will form a joint venture, if desired. If formed, Barrick then may earn the additional 10% by funding a feasibility study by the 10th anniversary of the option agreement.

South Uchi is one of Kenorland's pipeline projects and its only asset in Ontario, Canada. The 65,657 hectare property, in the Birch-Uchi Greenstone Belt in northwestern Ontario's prolific Red Lake District, boasts gold and lithium deposits.

The Vancouver, British Columbia-based company's other seven projects are in Alaska and Quebec, four of which involve partners.

They are:

 

In Alaska

Healy (gold/flagship): optioned from Newmont Corp. for up to a 70% stake

Tanacross  (copper, gold, molybdenum/flagship): 100% owned

 

In Quebec

Frotet (gold/flagship): optioned to Sumitomo Metal Mining for up to an 80% stake

Chicobi (gold/pipeline): optioned to Sumitomo Metal Mining for up to a 51% stake

Chebistuan (gold/pipeline): optioned to Newmont Corp. for up to an 80% stake

O'Sullivan (gold/pipeline): 100% owned

Hunter (gold/pipeline): 100% owned

 

Of Kenorland's roughly 400,000 hectares of cumulative minerals rights, some are in Manitoba, but the company currently does not have a project there.

"The 65,657 hectare property ... boasts gold and lithium deposits."

A second way this exploration company creates shareholder value is by making metals discoveries through large-scale but systematic, early-stage exploration. As such, work is currently being done at several projects simultaneously, all located in geologically prospective mining jurisdictions, and the company is well funded.

Already this approach has paid off, as Kenorland, through its joint venture partnership with Sumitomo, made a gold discovery at Frotet in 2020.
