The Cliff - Novagold's Galore Creek



November 27, 2007 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: NG

Have a look at NovaGold... It fell off a cliff yesterday.

Teck Cominco backed out of funding this copper, gold and silver mine construction. A lot of money has already been spent here, and it was just halted.  It is called reassessing the market, cut your loss and run.

The measured resource grade is 0.59% copper, 5.64 g/ton silver and 0.33 g/t gold.  At current prices this works out to about $50/ton metal values. 

The metal grade on NovGold's resource is better than the metal grade for Augusta Resource, AZC, about 16% better.

I did a post on AZC ago because some one asked me why I underperformed it and I gave my reasons.  Not getting funding for their project wasn't on the list, but it certainly looks like that idea could be added to the list...

This is just someone's comment I picked up somewhere.  It doesn't matter where, but it is common....

The value of the metal at todays prices is some 58.4B, Nova’s share 29.2B. Even discounted 10% this would be $24 per FD share. The 10% of 50% of Donlan is $5.70 per FD share.

Sure the Cdn $ dollar has risen since the Feasability's 81 cents, an increase of 24%.

But the value of the metals used have increased more, AU (525) now 800+ up 52%, AG (8) now 14+ up 40% and CU (1.50) now 3+ up 50%.

Now read my post, The Abundance of Minerals....
