RIMOUSKI, Quebec, Aug. 19, 2021 – Puma Exploration Inc., PUMA-TSXV, (the “Company” or “Puma”) has closed the fully subscribed hard cash units offering for an amount of $1,600,000. The company issued five million units at the price of 32 cents per unit. Each unit comprises one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant gives its holder the right to purchase one common share at a price of 50 cents per share until August 19, 2023.

Crescat Portfolio Management LLC (for itself and/or for accounts managed by Crescat Portfolio Management LLC (collectively, “Crescat”)), has participated as expected in the offering by making a strategic investment of $960,000, representing 60% of the financing.

Two (2) insiders of the company participated in the private placement for aggregate gross proceeds of $128,000. These insiders purchased units under the same terms as the other investors. The participation of these insiders is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements, pursuant to sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 — Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions, on the basis that the fair market value of such participation or the consideration paid by such insiders does not exceed 25 per cent of the market capitalization of the company.

In connection with the private placement, the Company has paid cash finders’ fees totalling $81,920 and issued 256,000 finders’ warrants, each entitling the holder to acquire one additional common share of Puma at a price of 50 cents for 24 months. All securities issued to purchasers and finders under the offering are subject to a four-month holding period from the date of issuance of the securities, pursuant to applicable securities legislation and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. The placement is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The net proceeds from this offering will be used to increase the current ongoing 2,000-meter diamond drill program to 10,000-meter at the Williams Brook Gold Project, located in New Brunswick, Canada and for general working capital purposes.

The technical team is on site on the Williams Brook gold property to finalize the summer exploration program, which currently includes the trenching and stripping of the new discoveries made during the initial phase of exploration and the inaugural drilling of the O’Neil Gold Trend. Update on exploration programs will be shared shortly.

O’NEIL GOLD TREND (OGT)
The O’Neil Gold Trend (OGT) is a pervasive altered and brecciated rhyolite unit hosting significant gold showings and occurrences followed by trenching over a strike length of 700 meters. The geophysical signature of the OGT is expressed over 7km. The favourable unit (rhyolite) is similar and parallel to the structures hosting the “Williams 1” and “Williams 2” Gold Zones with selected drill results of 11.2 g/t over 2.8m, 2.1 g/t Au over 9.0m, and 1.0 g/t over 23m.

These trends are interpreted to be related to a major rifting in the New Brunswick Geological events and could represent a low sulphidation epithermal gold system. Along the OGT, the width of the altered horizon varies from 5 to 250 meters with an average apparent thickness of 150 meters.

Numerous quartz veins, quartz veinlets, stockworks and breccias were observed mostly perpendicular to the major trend and contain the gold mineralization. The OGT has never been drilled and many gold zones were discovered during the summer 2020 exploration campaign.

High-Grade Selected Grab Samples Assays on the Prolific O’Neil Gold Trend (OGT)*:

O’Neil Gold Zone (VG**):128.5 g/t Au, 44.4 g/t Au, 38.8 g/t Au, 32.8 g/t Au, 23.1 g/t Au

Teck Resources’ Investor Day Shines Light on Long-Term Resilience of Steelmaking Coal

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.
