  • Pershing Gold Delivers Blockbuster Drill Results [View article]
    Whoa, slow down Peter. How about fact checking before repeating PGLC's math errors?

    .119opt does [b] NOT [/b] equate to 4.070gpt

    .119opt x 31.103g in a troy ounce = 3.701257gpt.

    When converting from ounces per short ton, the company moves to grams per metric tonne. A metric tonne is about 10% larger than a short ton. That's your difference.

  • Could The Coking Coal Market Get Any Worse? [View instapost]
    i agree. I only said that it might not get worse because it is already so bad for the coal equities that they are all staring at a dismal future as it is. I guess a worse market would simply hasten the race to the bottom, i.e. chapter 11.

  • Africa Opportunity Fund: Unappreciated, Underestimated And Undervalued. [View article]
    This article makes a lot of sense to me. I agree that diversification of a number of risky stocks into one vehicle is frequently a good idea. Hopefully, an investment in this fund would have low correlation to the overall stock markets, which good.

  • NOVX21: The 'Clean' Way To Invest In The Coming PGM Boom [View article]
    NOVX21 is attractive because it's so small. Unlike much larger companies that own smelters or companies like SWC, NOVX21 has a fully-diluted market cap of just C$ 14.5 million. And, it's important to recognize that if the warrants and options included in the fully-diluted market cap get exercised (30 million of which have a strike price of 20 cents per share), the company would receive proceeds of about C$ 10 million. Some detractors point to a wall of 20 cent paper hitting the market, but if that happens, the company will have an additional C$ 10 million in the bank. That's enough to fund a second 10-reactor facility! I'm working under the assumption that the next C$10 million raised will be the last time the company has to issue any equity / convertible debt-- the company's body language on this coming capital raise is that it will have a very meaningful debt component, but the devil is in the details. Hopefully, we will see what the funding package looks like ASAP. I would not be surprised to see NOVX stock start to rally after the funding package is announced, as the certainty of funding overtakes the fear of the unknown particulars.

    The longer-term picture.... if the company can execute and get it's first 10-reactor plant up and running, is that the 20 cent paper will be a blip in the road. Having said that, it will take NEW investors to buy into this story to get us over that hump. By the way, the wall of shares isn't necessarily at 20c, because holders of 20c warrants/options would not exercise them unless the price of the stock was several pennies higher than that.

    I think NOVX is a highly speculative name, but with funding highly likely (in my opinion, just a question of cost), there's considerable option value in the stock. After funding, I think the shares should have a floor of say 10c with upside to the 16-20c range before holders worry about the 20c options/warrants. All we need is 1 or 2 small institutions to start accumulating a position. The funding package will be a major de-risking event that should attract new investors.

    Thanks again to the author for drawing attention to this company.

  • NOVX21: The 'Clean' Way To Invest In The Coming PGM Boom [View article]
    This is a great effort for a first article from this author. I am invested in NOVX21. I could not agree more with the bullish thesis on the company and the bullish thesis on PGMs.

    I've done extensive work on NOVX21 and believe that a 10-reactor plant could have a Net Present Value of C$35-C$40 million depending on PGM prices and the replacement cycle of capital equipment. The entire market cap of the company is just C$ 14.5 million, and a single facility that can be built in less than a year and has a payback period of roughly a year is potentially worth 3x the current market cap.

    NOVX21 has zero debt, C$2 million and cash and is reported to be speaking with a small group of institutions and/or gov't agencies about funding the first 10 reactor plant. A key question will be the mix of debt and equity in the funding package. And, if the debt is straight debt or convertible debt. I assume that the company can self-fund the second plant and subsequent plants.

  • Weak Short Thesis Creates Buying Opportunity In Torchlight Energy [View article]
    TRCH at $4.4, short attack not working too well at the moment.

    I guess WTI at $106 and Brent at $112 doesn't hurt either!

  • Nevada's Gold Standard Ventures, Interview Of CEO Jonathan Awde [View article]
    Some people seem to think that Gold Standard Ventures mgmt would only be pushing for a near-term (July) maiden resource if they were confident that the size and grade will be meaningful. I agree with that sentiment, but I don' think anyone knows what headline number of ounces and/or grade the market is looking for.

    Some want to see 1 million ounces, (at Pinion alone) I think it might be lower than that, somewhere around 800k ounces. I only think that because the company has an historical figure of a bit over 800k ounces.

    However, since Pinion is a near-surface oxide deposit, and drill holes are relatively cheap and take just a few days to drill, the size of the resource could grow (possibly by a lot) by the end of the year. That's really what I'm watching for, the next resource report at Pinion, not the one in July. I think the next resource report could be the one that solidifies the idea that mid-tier and majors will be taking GSV out next year.
