Learn to Strike Where Golden Achievements Fall on Deaf Ears

December 16, 2011 – Comments (29) | RELATED TICKERS: BRD.DL , CDYCF

In some respects an obvious proposition, but nonetheless worthwhile to keep in mind when scouring through a battered sector for the standout bargains with low (long-term) downside risk.

http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2011/12/16/learn-to-strike-where-golden-achievements-fall-on.aspx

Remember when I was urging Fols to buy Yamana at $11 (I think I began touting that combination of traits around $9 per share) because I perceived one of the sector's standout bargains with minimal downside risk? That minimal downside risk was a product of meaningful value-added achievements that the market had persistently failed to account for during a broader period of weakness for precious metals. The discussion in the article linked above is a current application of the same sort of exercise.

http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2010/11/04/yamana-gold-is-preparing-for-liftoff.aspx

Brigus' initial resource was a thing of beauty, and the market's irrational response serves to reduce downside risk in the share. Deep value and low risk ... A powerful combination! Likewise for Cardero Resource with its phenomenal PEA on Carbon Creek.

Enjoy!

SN,

They missed on volume by about 17% from the already disappointing Q4 outlook delivered with Q3 results. Certainly not what we want to see, but keep in mind the new General Mine Manager only got started earlier this month, and the 4 mine geologists and the production coordinator also started just during the quarter. Let's grant them this quarter to get their feet wet with the existing shortcomings, and look to Q1 for first indications of a noticeable improvement.

When it gels, and the new management team knows full well that the underground operation must gel in a hurry, the advanced state of underground development and number of active stopes still promises to yield reliable steady-state production.

Personally, I'm looking for 80,000-90,000 ounces in 2012, and >100,000 in 2013. Somewhere within that period, the market will begin to price-in production from Contact and 147. When it does, we'll all be winners.

I have a small holding in BRD and would also like to know if it is worth buying at these levels. Looks to have rallied a bit today. Any further thoughts on Copper Fox? I am hoping for a big pop here early in the new year on a buy back from Teck. If this happens is BRD a good target for the ginormous profits...

Hey Sinch,

First of all, thanxx for all the guidance/input that you have selflessly provided. Quick question...you and other Fools have expressed an affinity for Eldorado Gold (EGO). Does their recent acquisition of European Goldfields (EGFDF) and the subsequent downgrade pose any concern to you? Thanxx in advance for any input. Cheers and best regards.

I'll let my article speak for me on that point:

 http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2011/12/20/meet-the-new-leader-of-golds-midtier-pack.aspx

ziing and eeibbay,

I can't offer trade-specific advice, but I can tell you I remain strongly bullish on the stock's long-term outlook despite the disappointing q4 output. I can see no obstacles to a swift operational improvement, and the shares are deeply discounted as a consequence of the hiccups thus far.

When I have cash to deploy, I am targeting a basket of my top prospects rather than betting the house on any one stock, but I can tell you that BRD is certainly part of that basket.

Good luck, and Merry Christmas

SkyPilot,

I had a lengthy conversation yesterday with the third-party IR rep for Tyhee. The company seems to have figured a change was required given the dastardly share-price action. Dr. Web is an exploration geologist, and now that the company is knee-deep in its feasibility study, it may be time for someone else to lead the way forward.

Regardless, I know that I for one am thankful for the work Dr. Webb completed at Tyhee in building this project to where it is today.

Like Alexandria before them, it's a bummer they had to go to the market in the midst of thie significant downturn, but you have to keep moving forward and raising capital when needed.

The feasibility study is increasingly shaping up as a moment of truth for the stock, where the market will either attribute to the project some likelihood of moving forward as it stands, or not. At that point, the board will have to decide whether going it alone remains a viable strategy, or whether seeking a jv or buyout presents the better option.

It's a tough road for micro-cap developers these days, which is so incredibly odd given that we're in the midst of a secular bull market for the metals in question.

Hi Sinch,

I read your two part story on your picks for 2012. I'm currently under water on most of these but in no rush to sell. Can you give me some of your insight for these gold and silver miners not on your top 10 list?

Wow Sky Pilot you are Johnny on the spot! I briefly owned HL last fall but sold it to buy something else. Now seeing the first link opens up my eyes to the thought of a merger/acquisition of Aurcana. As it stands Aurcana looks very undervalued but in any type of action with HL (or other miner) I would expect full valuation and a hefty premium to it's current price. Thoughts?

It also looks like I've got to get me some more Aurcana!

Thanks.   But, I give Sinch all of the credit.  He taught me how to do proper DD on miners.

I like Aurcana.  I own several "K" shares.   

I may buy some more during the first quarter.   But, I am now accumulating some "off of the radar"   miners, first.  Sub 50 cent per share stocks,  Under valued IMO. 

I take time each AM to do some "prospecting" using Google and Yahoo search engines. 

I look at who also, owns them and / or are significant shareholders in and / or are lenders to them.

Try it.   Keep notes.    You'll be surprised with what you can find.

Share the info. here, Sinch's Blog,  with us.

  I've bet fairly heavily on Aurcana. I own 11 of those "K" shares. I  have 12 in Brigus Gold too. Just for fun I did a little snoping at Yahoo Finance and found US Silver Corp. I'm sure you know all about it but it looked interesting to me. Do you think it's worth taking a deeper look into it?
