Emerging sulphate of potash developer Trigg Mining (ASX: TMG) has been valued at 40c by Sydney-based equities research group Corporate Connect in a comprehensive initiation research report issued just weeks before the company delivers a scoping study on its flagship Lake Throssell SOP project in WA. The eye-catching valuation, which compares with a current share price of 10.5c, is informed from more progressed peer projects and a discounted cash-flow equity derived value “with potential upside as its projects de-risk through development stages.”

Canaccord Genuity says gold production of 15.2koz from Red 5’s (ASX: RED) Darlot gold mine for the June quarter was above its forecast of 13.3koz, largely driven by higher plant throughput.

Canaccord has a Speculative Buy recommendation on the $434 million gold miner, with a price target of 35c-a-share, well above its current price of 18.5c. “AISC of A$2,461/oz was slightly higher than Canaccord’s estimate of A$2,445/oz with higher volumes mined and milled causing the variance,” said Canaccord analyst Henry Renshaw. “The result takes production for the full FY21 to 76.1koz at an AISC of A$2,273/oz, which is within the recently revised guidance range of 74-78koz at an AISC of A$2,240-2,290/oz.”

Lithium developer Liontown Resources (ASX: LTR) continues to attract attention from the bigger end of town, with two initiation reports since the start of July.

Macquarie Research initiated coverage with an Outperform rating (see last week’s story in our FitzGerald column) and a $1.05 valuation, saying that the company’s flagship Kathleen Valley lithium-tantalum project in WA has the potential to produce ~700ktpa of spodumene, a scale large enough to underpin a fully integrated lithium hydroxide refinery. “Kathleen Valley is one of the largest undeveloped spodumene resources globally and the largest not tied to off-take and joint venture agreements,” Macquarie said.

Canaccord Genuity has issued a Speculative Buy recommendation with a 30c price target for emerging copper explorer-developer New World Resources (currently 10c).

In an initiation note, Canaccord cautions that its valuation is preliminary in nature and should be viewed as a what-if case, given no formal mining studies have been published and a maiden JORC resource is awaited, but outlines what it describes as a “likely development scenario” for the company’s Antler project in Arizona, USA. “Based on the published drilling data to date, we have modelled a potential mine inventory for Antler,” Canaccord says. The project has a non-JORC historic resource of 4.7Mt at ~3.4% copper equivalent.
