5 Top Weekly TSXV Stocks: Zenyatta Up on Albany Graphite Updates

Last Friday (July 20), the S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index (INDEXTSI:JX) rose 1.3 points or 0.18 percent to close at 714.47.

News headlines last week were wholly dominated by trade war fears and solidifying concerns over the US’ relationship with its trading partners. China has gone so far as to place all blame on the US for a fall in overall confidence in the global economy.

On the TSXV, the Investing News Network had a gander at how miners are faring in light of the week’s news. Below are the top five gainers in the mining space.

  • Honey Badger Exploration (TSXV:TUF)
  • Inventus Mining (TSXV:IVS)
  • Zenyatta Ventures (TSXV:ZEN)
  • Maya Gold and Silver (TSXV:MYA)
  • Hunt Mining (TSXV:HMX)

Honey Badger Exploration

Precious and base metals explorer Honey Badger Exploration is focused mainly on Ontario and Quebec.

In its most recent news, released on Thursday (July 19), the company announced it has optioned a polymetallic silver, gold, zinc, lead and cobalt property in the Thunder Bay region of Ontario from Cairngorm Mines. It is called the Beaver silver property.

Honey Badger says the historic property is ripe for exploration due to its location in a prolific mining region. Investors reacted nicely, with the firm’s share price up 30.43 percent across the week to C$ 0.15.

Inventus Mining

Ontario-based Inventus Mining is a mineral exploration and development company focused on the Sudbury mining district. While its principle asset is the advanced-stage Pardo paleoplacer gold project, it also has the Sudbury 2.0 project on the boil.It was the subject of the company’s most recent news release in May, when it acquired the property.

While the company released no news last week, its share price on the TSX Venture Exchange was up by 27.59 percent over the week, trading at C$ 0.18.

Zenyatta Ventures

Graphite-focused Zenyatta Ventures has put out plenty of news this month, with an update on its Albany graphite project in Ontario released on July 5, changes to its board announced on July 12 and results from test work conducted in 2017 on a graphite purification process revealed on July 16. 

Albany is described by Zenyatta as “the largest and very rare ultra high-purity graphite deposit in Northern Ontario.” The company claims it “contains the largest and only high purity hydrothermal graphite mineralization being developed in the world.” Earlier in the year, the firm’s board was upended by a dissident shareholder takeover

The company’s share price increased 27.08 percent over the course of last week to reach C$ 0.61.

Maya Gold and Silver

Canadian gold and silver explorer Maya Gold and Silver is focused on assets in Morocco, where it has five properties, and a sixth in Mexico.

Its most recent news was back in late June, when it released details on drill results from its Moroccan Boumadine propertyAccording to the release, Maya Gold and Silver has intersected up to 4.91 g/t gold at the property, which it has an 85-percent interest in. The balance is state owned.

Last week, Maya Gold and Silver’s share price rose by 21.15 percent, and is now valued at C$ 2.75.

Hunt Mining

Hunt Mining is a precious metals exploration and development company with core projects in Argentina.

The company holds up the Martha mine as its primary asset, as it is a producing mine. The company also has the producing La Josefina mine in Argentina on its books along with a number of exploration assets.

Hunt Mining hasn’t released any news recently, with its most recent news being back in June, when it announced it was listed for trading on the OTCQB venture market in the USLast week, Hunt Mining’s share price increased by 19.95 on the TSX Venture Exchange, closing at C$ 0.28.

5 Top Weekly TSX Stocks: Energy Fuels Jumps on US Investigation

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) opened lower on Friday (July 20) at 16,485.96, down 57.05 points. By midday, the TSX had dropped an additional 17 points and sat at 16,468.86.

The market dip was the result of financial and industrial stock losses as the threat of another round of US tariffs weighed heavily on the market.

Earlier in the week, US President Donald Trump vowed to impose tariffs on some US$ 500 billion in Chinese imports. A probe by the US Department of Commerce around uranium imports as a national security risk also began last week.

Last week’s top TSX stocks include two base metals miners, two energy metals companies and a tungsten-focused firm. The five TSX-listed mining stocks that saw the biggest gains are as follows:

Here’s a look at those companies and the factors that moved their share prices last week.

Energy Fuels

Energy Fuels is a US-based uranium producer currently focused on its three projects in Utah, Wyoming and Texas. The company also has ongoing vanadium projects.

Energy Fuels, along with UR-Energy, filed a petition with the US Department of Commerce in January, asking the agency to look into national security around uranium imports. Last week, the US government announced it would commence a probe into the matter. Energy Fuels’ share price was up 13.13 percent over the five-day period, closing at C$ 3.36.

Nevsun Resources

Nevsun Resources is a mid-tier base metals company that operates Bisha, a high-grade open-pit copperzinc mine. The company is also developing the Timok copper-gold project.

On July 17, Nevsun issued an announcement advising shareholders that despite speculation, Lundin Mining (TSX:LUN) had yet to make a formal offer to Nevsun to acquire the company. Nevsun recommended its shareholders take no action. The company’s share price was up 11.22 percent on Friday, and sat at C$ 4.71.

Why is Metallurgical Test Work Important?

Metallurgy is the science and study of the behaviors and properties of metals. It serves an important purpose in a number of industries, especially in regards to quality control.

In the mining industry, metallurgical science and technology play a critical role in extracting metals from ore and refining them for end use.

In fact, metallurgical testing is one of the most important components of successfully transforming an exploration-stage project into a profitable mine. It’s during metallurgical testing that mining engineers can assess the condition and composition of the material to be mined, and determine if commercial-level extraction and processing can be done economically.

This INNspired Article is brought to you by:

Bonterra Resources (TSXV:BTR; OTCQX:BONXF, FWB:9BR1) is a Canadian gold exploration company based in Vancouver. The company’s two major holdings are the Gladiator Gold project in Quebec, Canada and the Larder Lake Project in Ontario, Canada.Send me an Investor Kit

Metallurgical testing helps de-risk projects and secure funding

Junior resource companies need funds to advance their projects toward production. Convincing investors and banks to part with their cash means management must continue to de-risk a project to move it to the next stage. Once a company has successfully identified a deposit and delineated sufficient resources, the next step is development and mine construction; an expensive undertaking that’s also risky for investors betting on whether those resources are in fact economically recoverable.

The higher the recoveries (the percentage of a metal extracted from the ore during processing), the higher the profit margin and the quicker investors will see returns. Positive metallurgical testing results tell the market not only whether an operation will be feasible, but also if it will be profitable.

Metallurgical testing can de-risk projects in other ways, such as by helping mine engineers determine the best flow sheet design, which can have a huge impact on capital and operating costs as well a project’s environmental footprint. Not all ores are created equally, and not every deposit will be amenable to simple, environmentally friendly, low-cost operations — metallurgical testing can help determine the viability of such methods on a given orebody.

The key to ensuring metallurgical tests are an accurate window into future production on the deposit starts with the testing samples themselves. “The samples must reflect the full range of characteristics expected throughout the deposit. The geologist, mining engineer and metallurgist need to collaborate to ensure an adequate number of samples are collected for testing,” said Dmitry Yermakov, senior processing engineer at SRK Consulting. “An error at this stage in the project can be very costly if the plant does not meet design criteria during the early, payback period of the mine life.”

Low-CAPEX/OPEX operations are for obvious reasons more attractive to investors, and positive metallurgical test results are something you can quite literally take to the bank.  Environmentally, the fewer harsh chemicals required during extraction and processing (simple flotation vs. cyanide leaching) the smoother the road to final permitting.

Each stage of a project requires more advanced metallurgical studies

Metallurgical testing is usually a part of later-stage exploration and development programs to gather logistical and economic data for use in scoping, prefeasibility and bankable feasibility studies. The studies often include grind optimization, gravity separation, flotation and cyanide leach testing.

Resource companies conduct metallurgical testing to help determine the processing parameters for flow sheets and to guide further optimization test work (including grade control and recoveries), all of which are an integral part of future engineering studies once a project nears construction.

“Designing and selecting the optimal process flowsheet is the result of a well-planned testwork program, some creativity and the knowledge a metallurgist has gained from practical experience on similar projects,” said Yermakov.

How a metallurgical testing program is designed depends on the stage of the project and the orebody itself — different variables will require different approaches to gaining an understanding of the economic parameters for a an optimized flow sheet.

As the project advances through exploration and development, there are three levels of technical studies of which metallurgical testwork is an essential component: scoping, prefeasibility and feasibility.

Scoping studies

The scoping study is the preliminary evaluation of a mining project, and generally involves limited metallurgical test work. Scoping studies may be used to inform a preliminary economic assessment (PEA) on a project.

The goals of metallurgical programs at this earlier stage are to determine how the material will respond to conventional processes (i.e., flotation, gravity concentration and leaching) and how much metal can be recovered. Because most of the technical parameters for these studies are assumed based on similar operations in the same district or geological setting, the level of accuracy is much lower than that of a feasibility study. Hence, the results aren’t usually something a company can take to the bank, but positive PEAs and scoping studies can be a catalyst for spike in share price.

Prefeasibility studies

Significantly more comprehensive than the scoping study, prefeasibility represents an important step forward in evaluating the operational and economic viability of a mining project. At this intermediate level, metallurgical test work is performed on drill core samples taken from various ore types in the deposit, and is designed to determine the optimal criteria for developing a preliminary flowsheet.

At this stage in the engineering process, “sufficient metallurgical testwork has been completed to develop processing parameters for equipment selection, consumables, flow sheet, production, and a development schedule,” said Majid Davoodi, senior metallurgist and process engineer at Cameco (TSX:CCO). “Capital and operating cost estimates are derived from preliminary testwork, assumed factors, and some vendor quotes. The economic analysis derived from a pre-feasibility study is of sufficient accuracy to be able to assess various development options, as well as the overall project viability.”

Definitive feasibility studies

The definitive feasibility study (DFS), as defined by NI 43-101 compliance standards, is a “comprehensive study of a mineral deposit in which all geological, engineering, legal, operating, economic, social, environmental and other relevant factors are considered in sufficient detail that it could reasonably serve as the basis for a final decision by a financial institution to finance the development of the deposit for mineral production.” Engineering studies at this level are more about economic feasibility rather than technical, which is why they are often referred to as bankable feasibility studies.

“The feasibility study represents the last step in the engineering process for evaluating a mining project for a “go/no go” decision and for financing purposes,” said Davoodi.

The major questions to be answered by a feasibility study, according to Casey Research, are: “[w]hat do we have? What’s the best way to get it out of the ground? How much money can we make doing that?” The answer to that last question is quantified in the study results using CAPEX and OPEX estimates, as well as internal rate of return (IRR) and net present value (NPV) figures.

Studies at this level involve detailed flow sheets and process designs as well as equipment size and specs. In preparation for the studies, resource companies often conduct metallurgical drill programs to obtain sufficient materials for testing. This drilling and test work may be conducted as part of a large bulk-sampling program or even a pilot plant program.

Companies with recent positive metallurgical testing results

Bonterra Resources (TSXV:BTR,OTCQX:BONXF,FWB:9BR1) announced in April 2018 results for preliminary metallurgichttp://zincinvestingnews.com/al test work being conducted as part of its ongoing resource development program at the Gladiator gold deposit in Quebec. Total gold recoveries of up to 99.4 percent were achieved, including 76.1 percent from the gravity circuit.

“As expected, preliminary metallurgical test results confirmed excellent gold recoveries. On average, greater than 70 percent of the gold reports to the gravity circuit at all grinding sizes, which potentially contributes to substantial capital reductions in the grinding circuits, potential lower reagent consumption, and highlights an opportunity for significant savings in the future processing parameters at Gladiator,” said Peter A. Ball, vice president, operations.

Fireweed Zinc (TSXV:FWZ) announced in May 2018 positive results from metallurgical tests conducted as part of the work needed to complete a PEA on the Macmillan Pass zinc project in the Yukon. The results included composite zinc concentrate grading 58 percent zinc at 89-percent zinc recovery, and lead concentrate containing 61-percent lead at 75-percent lead recovery.  “The results give us confidence that the Macmillan Pass project will produce concentrates desirable to potential traders and global smelter customers,” said CEO Brandon Macdonald. The PEA shows a pre-tax IRR of 32 percent and a NPV (8 percent) of C$ 779 million.

Thor Explorations (TSXV:THX) provided in May 2018 preliminary results from a DFS metallurgical test work program on its Segilola gold project in Nigeria. The work is based on a representative bulk sample totaling over 500 kilograms of diamond core. The purpose of the program was to optimize the process flow sheet. Results included 77.5-percent average gravity recoveries confirmed; 98.9-percent total recovery confirmed at 106 µm grind size and 24-hour cyanide leach; and an average recovered head grade of 8.73 g/t gold.

“The results confirm substantial gravity recovery is achievable and a significant opportunity exists for optimization of the process plant, resulting in a reduced operating cost, increased total recovery and improved process efficiency,” said President and CEO Segun Lawson.

Takeaway

Advancing a resource project toward production requires significant funding, for which most junior resource companies must look to investors and financial institutions. Metallurgical testing helps companies and investors understand the feasibility of a project both in terms of the technical and the financial — key information for de-risking a project and determining its true profit potential.
