expert analysis & newsletter briefs

NexGen Energy Ltd.

"In the Junior space, we have followed NexGen Energy Ltd. closely; the company was recently featured in Haywood's last "Junior Exploration Report." The southern margin of the Athabasca Basin has become the new hot spot for uranium discoveries in the last three to four years, through the discovery of Fission Uranium's Triple R, followed by NexGen's Arrow. Prior to these, discoveries were in the eastern part of the basin, with a couple of exceptions. These discoveries have opened up a new, highly prospective region. . .NexGen is an earlier-stage explorer. Not only does it have the Arrow discovery, but it also has significant land holdings around that discovery. . .the results from Arrow are certainly significant—concentrating on the high-grade zones known as the A2 and A3 Shears. Through aggressive drilling, NexGen has been able to expand the extent of those zones, which is obviously a positive. . .the company is testing the extension potential of the higher-grade uranium mineralization it has discovered. NexGen needs to follow up this extensional drilling with infill drilling to determine the continuity of the uranium mineralization between the widely spaced holes it has just released." (8/18/15) - The Energy Report Interview with Mick Carew

Fission Uranium Corp.

"The southern margin of the Athabasca Basin has become the new hot spot for uranium discoveries in the last three to four years, through the discovery of Fission Uranium Corp.'s Triple R, followed by NexGen's Arrow. . .Fission has accumulated significant lease holdings surrounding its project. . .Fission has released an Inferred resource of +100 million pounds. It's a significant resource. The results that Fission has released of late are aiming to extend the R780 Zone, and are very good results." (8/18/15) - The Energy Report Interview with Mick Carew

DuSolo Fertilizers Inc.

"We have followed DuSolo Fertilizers Inc. for some time. The company has successfully brought its flagship Bomfim phosphate project in Brazil to production this year, and is currently producing direct application natural fertilizer (DANF) from high-grade phosphate rocks. Once modifications to its processing facility are complete, DuSolo will have the capacity to produce approximately 160 Kt of DANF per annum. We note that the company has secured numerous sales contracts for the 2015 plantation season, totaling approximately $8.5M, demonstrating its ability to negotiate sales contracts in the local Brazilian market. The last sales contract it secured was with a major Brazilian fertilizer distributor for approximately 60,000 tonnes at a price of BRL230 for BRL13,800,000, or $5.2 million at today's exchange rate (Aug. 17, 2015). DuSolo recently issued a press release in which it explained that the planting season in Brazil has been hampered by an unusually long rainfall season. The company has received a $750,000 bridge loan to see it through the period while it ramps up to full production. Despite the setback, we see a bright future for DuSolo in the medium to long term given its location—it's within one of the fastest growing agriculture districts in the world. While Bomfim has considerable expansion potential, we note DuSolo also holds an impressive exploration portfolio. In addition, there is potential to produce alternative phosphate products to meet both global market and local market demand, given the high grade of the phosphate material at Bomfim and elsewhere. . .the weather did hamper production and limit the level of production and sales DuSolo could achieve. Once the company has been able to demonstrate that it can produce this product, sell it to its customers and fulfill the sales contracts that it has negotiated, then I think investors will have more confidence in the company moving forward." (8/18/15) - The Energy Report Interview with Mick Carew

Input Capital Corp.

"Input Capital Corp. is blazing a trail as the first agricultural company to implement the profitable streaming business model. The company is led by people who have a track record of success within the agricultural sector and who have most importantly, made investors a lot of money. . .the company is still in the explosive growth phase, continually adding additional streams and generating increasing revenue as each year goes by." (8/18/15) - Tom Wallace, Ag Letter
