expert analysis & newsletter briefs

Focus Ventures Ltd.

"In Peru, I have been examining Focus Ventures Ltd., a very small company that has just released a major resource estimate on its Bayovar 12 project. . .the Bayovar is a strong phosphate region, and Focus' land package is surrounded by phosphate mines. It is a very straightforward project. Twenty drill holes were sufficient to outline a deposit with 215 Mt in resources at an average grade of 12.5% P2O5. The company has revised the exploration target upward of 300400 Mt. . .the mineralized layers are very horizontal, which makes it easy pickings for a shovel-and-truck operation. There are more than a dozen mineralized beds. For the top four beds, the grade increases to 14.4% P2O5 for 5051 Mt. That bodes well for the economics, because the project has excellent infrastructure. It is located near several ports in a phosphate region with two big mines already in production. This is a dream situation for any mining company. . ." (9/17/14) - The Energy Report Interview with Thibaut Lepouttre

Fission Uranium Corp.

"Many of the recent discoveries, especially the most high-profile ones, like Fission Uranium Corp.'s Patterson Lake North discovery, are either outside the basin or beneath it, hosted in basement rocks rather than rocks comprising the basin itself. I like Fission a lot. I'm a huge fan of Ross McElroy, its president and chief geologist. The only thing holding me back on Fission is it has 450M shares out and is a $500M company already. It's not a cheap stock but it's a great discovery." (9/17/14) - The Gold Report Interview with Eric Coffin

Roughrider Exploration Ltd.

"I just added Roughrider Exploration Ltd. for two reasons: Director Dale Wallster and CEO Scott Gibson. Dale and I go back a long time and Scott and I are close friends. I should note here that Roughrider is a stock I follow and update for subscribers but I don't rate it. I agreed to be a strategic advisor to the company. I think I may get paid for that but that isn't the real issue. There will be times I'm in possession of inside information so I can't rate the stock in the newsletter. Dale was the driving force behind Hathor and is a director of Kivalliq Energy. He made the decision to stake outside the Athabasca basin. Many of the recent discoveries, especially the most high-profile ones, like Fission Uranium's Patterson Lake North discovery, and the Roughrider discovery that made Hathor, are either outside the basin or beneath it, hosted in basement rocks rather than rocks comprising the basin itself. There is a northeast trending deformation zone that runs through the southeastern portion of the Athabasca Basin called the Wollaston-Mudjatik domain, which hosts all the in-production high grade deposits in the Athabasca Basin. So Dale and the people at Kivalliq chased that domain to the east in the basement rocks beyond the boundaries of the basin and staked a bunch of properties that people were ignoring. Kivalliq optioned this project, Genesis, to Roughrider. Roughrider can earn 85%, but Kivalliq is the operator.

Roughrider just finished the phase 1 program. There are few results back yet. The company is prioritizing eight target areas for a winter drill program and other targets may come out of the exploration program just completed. One of the advantages of being outside the basin, assuming the theory is right, is that you're dealing in an area where there's been a great deal of erosion. So rather than drilling 800900m holes, you're drilling 100200m holes. More bang for the buck. Roughrider should have about enough cash to do the winter drill program but without a lot to spare. So I would expect another small financing between now and the start of a drill program if only for prudence's sake." (9/17/14) - The Gold Report Interview with Eric Coffin

Pan Orient Energy Corp.

"Pan Orient Energy Corp. has announced that its steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) demonstration project in Alberta commenced first bitumen production as of September 16, 2014, after injecting steam for three months. The company expects it can achieve a stable rate of bitumen production within six to eight weeks. . .the establishment of bitumen production is encouraging. . .we should have more definitive results in November 2014. We see significant upside if the initial bitumen production results and steam injection ratios indicate the potential commerciality of the Sawn Lake SAGD project." (9/17/14) - Bill Newman, Mackie Research Capital
