The Mining Play

Other Mining Stocks 2022


Forget about about acquiring more at a discount with results like that! It should be a most interesting year ahead for ELO. No longer under the radar, this is truly a major behemoth of a polymetallic epithermal silver-tin deposit.

TR, if you get a chance, compare Eloro to Silver Elephant’s value. I think they both operate in Southern
Bolivia, both have negative earnings, but Eloro’s market cap is nearly 7 times that of Silver E. Just
wandering if you think Eloro has that much more potential value than Silver E.

Honestly, I have no idea. I’m just a lowly chart guy who is smart enough to pay attention to the guys who know the answers to questions like yours, but when it comes to fundamental analysis, especially on mining stocks, I’m quite honestly a dunce and at this point in my life I don’t see that changing. :stuck_out_tongue:

This move by the politburo should have an impact on silver, gold and copper. :face_with_monocle:

Beijing has set an economic growth target of 5.5% this year, which private economists have said will be difficult to reach without significant stimulus, as lockdowns and other heavy curbs to battle the pandemic create havoc for supply chains.

Anyone looking for an energy play and willing to take some risk, might look at Trillion Energy (TCF.VN / TRLEF). They have a decent presentation there.

They are a natural gas play in Turkey / Black Sea. They have a small amount of production on existing platform facilities that hook into existing pipeline infrastructure in Turkey. They have guaranteed purchase of their production from Turkey. They have PP reserves in their SASB field of 25 Bcf with a $75M NPV10 which is their current market cap. They just recently signed a drilling contract to start up several low risk wells in their reserve field with expected monthly cash flow in of around $3.7M by end of 2022 (at $9 / MCf gas price which actually just hit $18), doubling from there in 2023. They have what looks to be significant brownfield and exploration upside with several large discoveries by other companies from the same general formation they are producing from.

In addition, they have control of a large land package with some early 3rd party estimates of 0.5 to 3 TcF of gas in Bulgaria. They just announced an accelleration of this project due to the current energy crisis in related to the Ukraine war and Russia’s control of natural gas to Europe.

You’ll have to do your own evaluation in terms of political risk.

The stock was beat down in 2021 because the CEO announced a financing to get these first SASB wells online, cashflow from which was (and is) to provide financing for more well finishing and exploration. The financing turned into a long delay and lots of criticism. But this was finally completed, at less than ideal terms a couple of months ago. A contract is in place for July drilling services for these wells with Schlumberger, a top tier company for these types of wells.

The CEO is experienced in this industry and has built international energy companies before. His interactions with the financial markets has been clumsy though and led to the stock being beat down.

There is a lot of upside potential if they can execute and the political risk is as low as they say (which is what every mining / energy company says) and any of the exploration pans out. The downside seems fairly limited as least in the short / mid term as results should start coming in from the well drilling and new production in Fall 2022. Given the geo political situation and current energy pricing: worth taking a look and deciding for yourself.

There are a bunch of YouTube videos with CEO interviews you can look up. The CEO is obviously an energy industry nerd (and given I am a SW industry nerd I am OK with that for now). If they start to get some success and cash flow perhaps they will change up the image with some new communication faces.

TR, could you find time for a chart on Summa Silver?
“Add low, Trim High”

All Holes at Mogollon have Intersected High-Grade Silver and Gold Zones that Remain Open in All Directions

MOG22-05 is Best Hole Drilled in Company History

Vancouver, May 3, 2022 – Summa Silver Corp. (“Summa” or the “Company”) (TSXV:SSVR) (OTCQB:SSVRF) (Frankfurt:48X) announces high-grade silver and gold drill results from the Mogollon Property near Silver City, New Mexico.

Key Highlights:

  • 31.0 m at 459 g/t silver equivalent* (3.88 g/t Au, 129 g/t Ag) including 0.5 m at 6,311 g/t silver equivalent (66.8 g/t Au, 638 g/t Ag) and 2.0 m at 1,223 g/t silver equivalent (9.32 g/t Au, 431 g/t Ag) in MOG22-05 where total grade thickness through all mineralization is 14,233 g/t AgEq*m (see attached figures).
  • Aggressive Step-Out : Hole MOG22-05 is a 270 m step-out from previously reported MOG22-04 which intersected 11.6 m at 450 g/t silver equivalent (2.7 g/t Au, 220 g/t Ag).

  • Drilling Ongoing at the Hughes Property: The core drilling program at the Hughes Property at Tonopah, Nevada continues to be fully operational and assays for 5 additional holes are pending

I like both B2Gold and Calibre. You may remember BE mentioned Calibre a while back on the AUMC/MDMN thread. Calibre recently bought Fiore that has mining projects in Nevada and Washington. I added to accumulation this morning based on the following news. B2Gold also has good news out this morning which I have a position in. Everyone has different trading strategies. I prefer acquiring long-term positions that show enough promise that warrant accumulation and trading around a core after holding a year. I use a proven strategy during these volatile times of “buy Low, Sell High” and rarely exit a position entirely typical of some shorter term swing traders. Both strategies can be highly successful. Everyone needs to to do their own DD and use information that meets their personalized trading strategy.

anyone else nibbling on the mining shares or do you think we’re not done bleeding ?

I bought some ELO & NFG today. I’m watching gold to see if support around 1820 holds.

I bought some NFG today and ELO on Friday at the low. Should have bought this week

Bought KRRGF at 3.94/3.95 US this morning. Not a good chart reader but I’m thinking it is at a bottom. However, if it falls through resistance at this level, it could drop significantly further. All the fundamentals are good/improving so any downside that develops will just involve a little more waiting to see profits. Should note that the market didn’t like this, " * First quarter 2022 consolidated all-in-sustaining-costs (“AISC”)1 of US$1,396 per ounce sold is a 33% increase compared to first quarter 2021 AISC of US$1,049 per ounce sold (34% increase compared to fourth quarter 2021 AISC of US$1,042 per ounce sold)." Nor did they like that 40% of workers are off due to COVID or otherwise gone.

It appears most of the jump in production costs will likely be temporary and hopefully they can get workers back. They still maintain that, “Full-year 2022 cost guidance remains unchanged at a range of US$950 to $1,050 per ounce sold.”

Thanks! Will be interesting to see if it falls to that support level today or it recovers due to an over reaction to the news. Might come down to gold trends today which remain choppy at best. Perhaps I jumped back in too soon? It wouldn’t be the first time…aka Novo.

I suspect you’re right in that it depends on what the PM’s do. I’m in the camp that the end of this drop starts a bull market it commodities for the next decade + so from that perspective I wouldn’t sweat it. Any purchase at this point is likely to be profitable with patience, and since you’re still here I think you’ve got the patience game down pretty well! :stuck_out_tongue:


“anyone else nibbling on the mining shares or do you think we’re not done bleeding ?”

Nibbling on pullbacks on your favorite miners is the right approach, IMO, especially if you are replenishing shares sold earlier at a profit. It is rare to pick the exact bottom in the crazy volatility we are seeing, The entire market is down, and so are the miners. With patience, the PMs have a better chance of recovery than many of the other sectors. I’ve been picking off a few shares here and there - NFG, ELO, KRRGF, DOLLF to mention a few.

I’m still holding some KRR shares I bought back in the day, sold about 80% when we hit high $6’s, I was waiting to buy back in on a dip but now I have a better chance of making money on other stocks that got smashed this past week than I would with KRR and holding for the high $6’s again. If the market didn’t take the beating I was ready to get back in $5 range. Lots of great opportunity if this is the market low but who knows.
