Silver dollar hoard slabbed by NGC

A hoard of 16,000 pristine Morgan silver dollars stored in a New York City bank vault since 1964 have been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation.

That fact alone is amazing.

But even more compelling is the fact collectors will soon have an opportunity to buy these silver dollars from major retailers.

“Every collector dreams about having the opportunity to examine unsearched and fully original bags of vintage coins,” said Mark Salzberg, NGC chairman and Grading Finalizer.

“This was an incredible thrill for me,” he added.

The hoard dates back to the U.S. Treasury release 54 years ago.

Sixteen bags of the coins went from the Treasury to a New York bank in 1964.

The unnamed heir to the coins called in Jeff Garrett, president of Mid-American Rare Coin Galleries and former president of the American Numismatic Association.

Garrett, his son Ben, and Salzburg made up a trio of experts to evaluate the hoard.

What they found were 16 1,000-coin solid-date canvas bags of uncirculated coins.

There was one bag of 1878-S dollars, two bags of 1880-S, one 1881-S, one 1883-O, one 1884-O, one 1885, two 1885-O, one 1886, four bags 1887, one bag 1888 and one bag 1889.

As might be expected, NGC found a number of amazing individual coins.

The firm reports:

• 28 1880-S Morgan dollars graded NGC MS-67

• Four 1885 Morgan dollars graded NGC MS-67

• Four 1885-O Morgan dollars graded NGC MS-67

• 82 1887 Morgan dollars graded NGC MS-67

• One 1884-O Morgan dollar graded NGC MS-66+ Star.

NGC said the New York Bank Hoard coins were encapsulated with a special NGC certification label.

The coins in this hoard will be listed separately in the online NGC Census, which identifies the NGC-certified population for each issue and grade.

If this information makes you an eager potential buyer, you shouldn’t have long to wait.

“Now that the hoard has been certified and pedigreed by NGC – and protected by NGC’s secure holder – the coins can be enjoyed by countless other collectors,” Jeff Garrett promised.

Orvana Reveals Q3 2018 Production Results

Orvana Minerals Corp. (TSX:ORV) provided production results for its Spanish and Bolivian operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2018, featuring consolidated gold production of 26,761 ounces, an 8 percent increase in production compared to the previous quarter.

Highlights are as follows:

Q3 2018 Highlights

  • El Valle Mine (Spain):
    • Gold production  increased by 11 percent compared to Q2 2018;
    • Gold grade remained steady at 3.36 grams per tonne from previous quarter;
  • Don Mario Mine (Bolivia):
    • Completed first full quarter of production from Cerro Felix satellite deposit, achieving gold production of 9,916 ounces and gold recovery of 92.4 percent;
  • Consolidated Results:
    • Exceeded high end of FY 2018 copper production guidance; and
    • Continued increased gold production quarter-over-quarter during FY 2018

      Production Highlights – El Valle Mine

      • Gold production at El Valle underground operations was 16,845 ounces, an increase of 11 percent compared to 15,139 ounces of gold produced in Q2 2018;
      • Copper production was 1.6 million pounds, compared to 1.4 million pounds in Q2 2018, an increase of 15 percent;
      • Ore throughput in the mill was 169,958 dmt comprised of 39 percent oxide ore, an increase of 13 percent, compared to 150,966 dmt in Q2 2018;
      • Mechanical advance rates in the oxides mining zones increased by 24 percent compared to Q2 2018, yielding 1,919 meters of development in Q3 2018. The increased rates continue to position the mine to deliver the requisite oxide ore tonnage for the mill.


      Production Highlights – Don Mario Mine

      • Gold production at the Don Mario open pit operations, was 9,916 ounces, an increase of 3 percent compared to 9,649 ounces in Q2 2018. Ore production was impacted by low grades in the upper level of Cerro Felix.  Higher grades are expected as the lower pit areas are mined in the next quarter;
      • Gold grade of 1.90 grams per tonne was 3 percent higher than 1.84 grams per tonne in Q2 2018;
      • There was no copper production in Q3 2018 as the flotation circuit was shut down at the end of previous quarter.

Juan Gavidia, CEO, commented:

At El Valle, quarterly production continues to consistently increase as a result of our successful strategy of deploying a higher oxide ore mix process in the mill, supported by the ongoing ramp-up of mechanical advance. Gold production at Don Mario was impacted by low grades in the upper level of Cerro Felix, higher gold grades are expected as mining moves to the lower levels of the pit.

Lundin Goes Solo: Makes New Move on Nevsun

Lundin Mining (TSX:LUN) has announced it plans to make another offer for Nevsun Resources (TSX:NSU). The C$ 4.75-per-share offer values Nevsun at C$ 1.4 billion.

The new offer, made on Monday (July 16), comes after a previous offer involving both Lundin and Euro Sun Mining (TSX:ESM) fell through.

The new offer is below the original, which valued Nevsun at C$ 1.5 billion. This time Lundin is going it alone, forgoing involvement with Euro Sun, which Nevsun had derided by calling the company an unattractive partner.

In its release, Lundin says it “intends to make a formal offer to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Nevsun,” but notes that no formal offer has yet been made.

Nevsun’s response on Tuesday (July 17) was again to pour cold water on any speculation or excitement over the offer, with the company advising shareholders to take no action.

Speaking at the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium in Vancouver, Nevsun CEO Peter Kukielski reflected on the attention. “It’s becoming very clear to me that when you’re a great little company like Nevsun is, everyone wants to own you.”

But in his company’s release it was all business. “This latest announcement from Lundin continues to ignore the fundamental value of Nevsun and its assets,” he said.

“Despite the progress we have made in enhancing Nevsun’s value, Lundin’s notional takeover offer represents only a 13 percent premium to Nevsun’s closing trading price of C$ 4.21 per share on the TSX on July 16, 2018, and only a 9.1 percent premium to the volume weighted average trading price of Nevsun’s shares over the 30 days ended July 16, 2018,” he added.

In Vancouver, Kukielski emphasized that Nevsun has substantially added value to its two assets in Serbia and Eritrea in the time since Lundin’s previous joint offer in May, making Nevsun far more attractive to buyers beyond Lundin.

The fall of the offer price from C$ 5 to C$ 4.75 was certainly not lost on Kukielski. “Lundin’s number is going in the wrong direction,” he quipped.

Lundin has a different take on premiums though, harking back to prices before and after the original discussions between the companies in early 2018.

“The Offer Price represents a significant premium of 82 percent to the closing price of C$ 2.61 on February 6, 2018, the date of the first offer to Nevsun related to our interest in acquiring Timok,” Lundin says in its release.

“This is a 33 percent premium to the closing price of C$ 3.58 per Share on the TSX as of April 30, 2018, the date of Lundin Mining’s previously announced prior proposal to Nevsun,” it also states.

Paul Conibear, CEO of Lundin, commented, “following our attempts to constructively engage Nevsun since early February 2018, after having made a series of proposals and observing significant recent changes in the political landscape related to Eritrea, we have determined that the best course now is to make an all cash offer directly to Nevsun shareholders.

He added, “[o]ur offer will represent the clearest path for Lundin Mining to acquire the Timok project and for Nevsun shareholders to realize on the value of their investment without dilution and financing risk.”

Conibear even seemed to go so far as to allude that Lundin’s first offer was behind Nevsun’s increase in value since. “We believe that the proposed Nevsun acquisition consideration is full and fair value and represents a significant premium to Nevsun’s unaffected share price prior to the announcement of our first proposal,” he explained.

Lundin said that it intends to make a formal offer “on or about July 27.”

Kukielski and Nevsun said that if such an offer eventuates, shareholders will have 105 days to respond. They added that “Nevsun reminds shareholders that Lundin has previously made highly conditional confidential non-binding offers to Nevsun but has never presented a binding offer to Nevsun or its shareholders.”

Nevsun was trading at C$ 4.79 on the TSX at the time of writing (11:30 a.m. PST), up 13.78 percent on its previous close. Lundin was up by 1.07 percent at C$ 7.56.

First Majestic Silver Sets Production Record in Q2

First Majestic Silver (TSX:FR,NYSE:AG) set a record in Q2, with total production from its seven operating silver mines reaching 5.1 million silver equivalent ounces, the company announced on Monday (July 16).

Total production for the period consisted of 2.8 million ounces of silver, 25,449 ounces of gold, 3.9 million pounds of lead and 1.4 million pounds of zinc.

The company has increased its 2018 annual silver production guidance from 10.6 to 11.8 million ounces to 12 to 13.2 million ounces, primarily due to the addition of the Mexico-based San Dimas silver-gold mine, which it acquired this past May.


During the quarter, the integration of the newly acquired San Dimas mine into our Mexican portfolio was our primary focus,” said Keith Neumeyer, president and CEO of First Majestic.

“The world-class San Dimas operation, which contributed only seven weeks of production in the second quarter, propelled the company to a new quarterly production record of 5.1 million silver equivalent ounces and has become our cornerstone asset,” he added.

Neumeyer continued,  “under the new streaming agreement, we are going back to mine numerous high-grade silver veins that were previously deemed uneconomic by the previous operator. In 2018, all-in sustaining costs at San Dimas are projected to be between US$ 6.99 to US$ 8.19 per ounce, making it our lowest cost and our largest producing mine.”

During Q2, First Majestic processed 851,349 tonnes of ore at its seven operating silver mines: San Dimas, Santa Elena, La Encantada, La Parrilla, Del Toro, San Martin and La Guitarra. That represents a 5-percent increase compared to the previous quarter.

Consolidated silver grades averaged 127 g/t in comparison to the 111 g/t recovered in Q1. The company reported that the 14-percent increase in silver grades was mainly the result of the addition of seven weeks of production from San Dimas.   

Meanwhile, consolidated silver recoveries averaged 79 percent, up 6 percent from the previous quarter.

First Majestic’s underground development in the second quarter consisted of 17,838 meters, which was a 20-percent increase compared to the 14,914 meters completed in the last quarter.

Approximately 29 diamond drill rigs were active across all of the company’s properties during Q2. In total, 298 drill holes were completed for 73,899 meters on the seven producing assets, as well as the Plomosas silver project, resulting in a 65-percent increase in drilled meters compared to Q1.

Looking forward, the company said in the short term it will focus on reducing underground dilution and implementing mill automation processes, including the installation of high-intensity grinding technologies in order to increase efficiencies and reduce production costs.

Delivery and installation of the high-intensity grinding mills at Santa Elena and San Dimas are planned for October and November, respectively.

First Majestic expects further improvements in recoveries with the anticipated installation of microbubble flotation columns at La Parrilla during Q3 2018, followed by Del Toro in 2019.

Neumeyer also discussed the new roaster at La Encantada, stating, “[a]t La Encantada, the construction of the new roaster is in its final stages. Commissioning and start up procedures are expected to begin in late August before ramping up to commercial production by the end of the year. These are exciting times for the company, our employees and our stakeholders.”

As of 2:46 p.m. EST on Tuesday (July 17), First Majestic was trading at US$ 9.15.

Sibanye Secures US$500-million Gold-Palladium Streaming Deal

Sibanye-Stillwater (NYSE:SBGL) will receive a US$ 500-million upfront cash payment through a streaming agreement with a subsidiary of Wheaton Precious Metals (TSX:WPM,NYSE:WPM). 

In a Monday (July 16) press release, Sibanye said it will deliver a percentage of gold and palladium produced from its platinum-group metals (PGMs) operations in the US in exchange for the funds. The precious metals will mainly be extracted from Sibanye’s Stillwater and East Boulder operations.

“The streaming transaction is further delivery on our strategic commitments and validates the value we identified in the Stillwater assets,” said Neal Froneman, Sibanye’s CEO.

“Importantly the transaction results in a significant reduction in group leverage, improving flexibility and reducing financing costs and risk. We are extremely pleased to have secured this competitively priced financing arrangement with a company of the quality of Wheaton International,” he added.

Sibanye says the deal is of minimal risk as the stream is set up so that the company only needs to deliver a percentage of actual production, without ever being obligated to repay of the $ 500 million under any circumstances, and without minimum deliveries.

The deal does state that the company must sell all of the gold produced at its East Boulder and Stillwater mines to Wheaton for as long as the mines are operational.

Additionally, Wheaton will receive a percentage of the palladium produced at the mines, with the amount being staggered based on certain milestones; it will move from 4.5 percent to 2.5 percent and then to 1 percent for the life of the mines.

For its part, Wheaton will pay Sibanye 18 percent of the market prices for palladium and gold for each ounce of metal delivered up to the advanced amount, after which it will pay 22 percent.

“The stream includes a completion test on the development of the Blitz Project, including completion of underground development, critical surface infrastructure and expansion of the concentrator production output,” Sibanye said in a press release.

Gold production over the life-of-mine plan represents about 43 percent of the stream value, while palladium contributes the remaining 57 percent. Platinum is excluded from the deal. 

“Stillwater is another accretive addition to Wheaton’s portfolio of assets that is expected to contribute both production and cash flow for decades,” said Wheaton President and CEO Randy Smallwood.

At close of day on Tuesday (July 17), Sibanye was trading at US$ 2.38, up 2.15 percent.

Scythian Sells Assets in Latin America to Aphria

A cannabis operator with assets in the international cannabis market confirmed the sale of its South American and Caribbean interests to a major Canadian licensed producer.

In a deal announced on Tuesday (July 17) Scythian Biosciences (TSXV:SCYB) will sell its entire network of cannabis businesses across Argentina, Colombia and Jamaica to Aphria (TSX:APH) through the share acquisition of LATAM Holdings for a reported C$ 193 million worth in Aphria’s stock issued to Scythian.

“This timely strategic move allows Aphria to leverage Scythian’s first mover progress in the region while expanding on their own global reach and scope,” Scythian CEO Rob Reid said.

“We have spent a considerable amount of time and resources evaluating opportunities in Latin America and the Caribbean and we are confident in the long-term strategic opportunity and the value it will bring to our shareholders,” Vic Neufeld, CEO of Aphria said in a statement.

In addition to purchasing the assets from Scythian through LATAM Holdings’ share acquisition, Aphria will also assume a US$ 1 million debt bill.

Scythian indicated it obtained an opinion from Haywood Securities saying the value for LATAM Holdings was in the range of C$ 180 million to C$ 200 million.

A simple majority of Scythian shareholders must approve the transaction at a meeting the company said will schedule before September 15. The board of directors for the company unanimously approved the Aphria deal and recommended shareholders to vote in favor of it.

Both Scythian and Aphria suffered dips in share price during Tuesday’s trading session following the announcement of this transaction. Scythian’s shares took the bigger hit today as its stock declined in value 14.50 percent, a C$ 0.67 loss per share for investors, and closed at a price of C$ 3.95. While Aphria dropped 4.40 percent to a price of C$ 3.95.

What does Aphria get with this purchase?

If the transaction gets completed, Aphria is eyeing the potential of adding variety of businesses and licenses for cannabis ventures throughout South America.

In Colombia Aphria will obtain a 90 percent stake in Colcanna, a local medical cannabis producer with licenses for the extraction, production, research and exportation of medical cannabis products and importing cannabidiol (CBD).

Aphria will also get Argentinian pharmaceutical import and distribution company ABP, which holds a license for the import of CBD oil products and expands the potential reach of Aphria’s products through South America.

Schytian’s assets will also offer Aphria an entry into the Jamaican market thanks to obtaining Marigold Acquisitions, a company with a 49 percent stake in Marigold Projects Jamaica through wholly owned subsidiary Hampstead Holdings.

This Jamaican venture also holds a portfolio of beneficial licenses for the cannabis market in the country.

Investor takeaway

As the Canadian market keeps expanding with new players and operations appearing nearly  every week, some cannabis ventures –particularly larger public players– have started developing assets in international markets.

Throughout South America a cannabis movement is starting to appear for medical purposes; companies are starting to place bets in the developments of these markets as the promise of Canada leading the march on cannabis legalization solidifies.

In a previous interview with the Investing News Network (INN) Neil Closner, CEO of MedReleaf (TSX:LEAF), voiced an opinion strongly felt throughout observers of the industry: the international medical market is the biggest option available for all these companies.

“Many of those countries [advancing medical cannabis legalization policies] are more medically focused and medical rigorous than even Canada is today,” Closner told INN.

Similarly Alvaro Torres, CEO of Khiron Life Sciences (TSXV:KHRN) told INN LPs are looking for ways to “continue opening up their well-known strategies and well-known cultivation activities” in new markets.

This move also continues a trend of mergers and acquisitions within the cannabis space led by the larger companies in the public markets.

As part of INN’s Q2 2018 review of the cannabis sector, Yasmin Gordon, senior investment advisor with Canaccord Genuity, said she has noticed most of the big companies participating in the M&A activity are being clever in the capital raised leading to conscious business decisions in an attempt for these companies to hold their valuations.

Laramide Resources to Buy Rio Tinto’s Murphy Uranium Tenements

Laramide Resources (TSX:LAM,ASX:LAM) has entered into a sale-and-purchase agreement with a Rio Tinto (LSE:RIO,ASX:RIO,NYSE:RIO) subsidiary to procure the Murphy uranium tenements in Australia’s Northern Territory.

The newly penned agreement replaces a previous farm in and joint venture between the two companies. The former deal gave Laramide a 51-percent earn in; under the new arrangement, Laramide will pay AU$ 450,000 in three instalments for sole rights to the Murphy site.

The uranium tenements are located within the Murphy uranium province and are comprised of two exploration licenses, EL 9319 and EL 9414. They also contain several associated license applications spanning over 683 square kilometers.

Find a list in our new uranium outlook report!

This particular region of Australia has not seen extensive exploration since the 1970s.

The agreement between the two companies allows for Rio Tinto to have clawback rights, a production payment, a NSR royalty and rights of first refusal. The one-time clawback rights can be exercised if Laramide discovers and develops a measured and indicated mineral resource on the project with an in-situ value estimated in excess of US$ 1 billion.

In addition to the Murphy tenements, Laramide is also the 100-percent owner of the Westmoreland uranium project in Northwest Queensland.

Westmoreland has already proven valuable for the company. It has an indicated mineral resource totaling 36 million pounds of uranium contained in 18.7 million tonnes at an average grade of 0.089 percent U3O8, and an inferred mineral resource totaling 15.9 million pounds of uranium contained in 9 million tonnes at an average grade of 0.083 percent U3O8.

The Murphy project, which is located along strike from Westmoreland, is comprised of 683.5 square kilometers of granted exploration tenure.

According to a company press release, the acquisition of the tenements will enhance Laramide’s presence in an area believed to be highly prospective and underexplored.

“The Northern Territory of Australia is a jurisdiction that is supportive of both uranium development and mining and hosts several well-known deposits including the Ranger mine which has produced in excess of 120,000 tonnes of U3O8 over a 35-year period,” notes the release.

“The new agreement is structured to incentivize a return to active exploration on the project while providing RTX with an opportunity to participate should a world class discovery be made,” it also states.

The final payment from Laramide to Rio Tinto is scheduled to occur 24 months after the deal’s closing date. Laramide’s share price was up slightly on Tuesday (July 17), opening at C$ 0.26.
