  • OceanaGold reported first quarter revenue of $145.5 million with an EBITDA of $62.0 million. The company posted a net profit of $16.0 million in the first quarter, or $0.02 per share.
  • First quarter gold production of 83,191 ounces at All-In Sustaining Costs of $1,229 per ounce on sales of 82,847 ounces of gold.
  • I believe that OCANF will profit from the restart of the Didipio mine, and I recommend accumulating the stock below $1.55.

Anyone understand why the shareprice barely moved even though FTAA was renewed? Is it because of status on Haile mine?
@Damien draco can only assume that the news didn’t register in Canada or US as yet..ivebought today at $2.55A$ and believe that with Didipio back online producing over 120,000 ounces per annum, the free cash flow should be over 400m per year…assuming a modest X Ten and the mkt cap should be 4bn within the next yr assuming current Gold price….I.e. 2.5 times higher than it is today,cheers,tony
@tonyconnolly Well the volume traded yesterday was very high so it must have registered. How did you interpret the news about Haile?
@Damien draco recent news?? Haile has been a problem child that’s starting to come good. Lower AISCs and decent production levels…feels like they’ve just got to grips with how to manage/ balance the production. What are u hearing?
Didipio gets a 25 yr licence renewal…here we go!
Without Didipio Oceanagold is projecting annual production of 500.000 ounces at AISC of 1000 USD per ounce in exclusively Tier1 jurisdiction in 3 years. What is fair value for that type of company?

With Didipio Oceanagold is projecting annual production of 620.000 ounces at AISC of 800 USD per ounce. What is fair value for that type of company?
@Fun Trading If either of these two scenarios becomes a reality in 3 years what do you think is the fair value? Surely you have an opinion on this?

Damien, I do not really have such a long-term outlook when it comes to gold miners. It is the perfect trap that pushes you to overbuy. As I said, the stock is a great trading tool and deserves a bet long term. What I see is a huge free cash flow loss piling here, and it concerns me.

Best regards,

I agree that IF Didipio will restart in the near future Oceana is significantly undervalued. But what is the probability of that happening? The regime in the Philippines has not changed.

Yes, it is a gamble that deserves only a bet. No guarantee whatsoever, but I believe it will happen. The question is when?
@Simont just happened..25 yr licence granted

@tonyconnolly : Thanks Tony, based on your post I went to read the press release on their web site. This is good news for Oceana, balanced against the bad news in the press release about ongoing problems at Haile. All-in-all I will probably start a small position tomorrow, unless the price jumps significantly. I used to own a mid size position, sold when the Didipio problem started.
Hi FT, happy to of traded into and out of Oceana at great levels in the past few years..thankfully flat at the time Didipio closed and the stock dumped. I see it as a bit of a coin flip from here, as to whether or not Didipio reopens. Some of the upside is now built in as the mkt knows that there are talks underway. The cost and time to get get fully operational may well make it a very short spike in share price appreciation. The issues at Haile seem to be ongoing and consistent, making a strong team look at best, unlucky. I wish them well but see much cleaner looking prospects elsewhere that have all their ducks lined up and in a row. t
