Hurricane Cleanups, Trump Spending Money, and a Long Term Outlook for Metals

With markets bouncing back today and the metals selling off Doc and I look at some more fundamental points that could drive metals and possibly even help the average American. We still have no idea about the total cleanup costs from Harvey and Irma but it does present an opportunity for Trump to get some spending initiatives underway. Let’s see how it all plays out.

    Ex + Matt,
    I’m looking at a uranium play called Anfield Resources and noticed that their CEO owns about 10 million common and warrants. Their land package, and mill look very promising. More importantly, their share price has been absolutely destroyed this year! Have either of you had a chance to research and buy this issue? Looks cheap right now!!!

      I don’t follow that one but it technically looks like it could meander sideways for quite awhile longer. The share structure, recent financing, and the fact that it is not a gold/silver play are probably the main reasons for that technical appearance.

        It was a difficult market to do financing in with prices in the basement.

        When they get their production started, they’ll do just fine, (providing they secure at least some longer term off-take contracts on some of their production, like Ur-Energy and Peninsula Energy hold).

            Agreed, and the opposite is also true as there are often times investors can pick up a quick scalp and nice percentage return even as a company suffers.

            In this case, if investors position around these prices the suffering should stay to a minimum as they are getting in as things bounce along the bottom.

      Hi Confused – Yes, I’m a shareholder of Anfield Resources and they were able to buy the US Insitu mining assets of Uranium One (the company Frank Guistra and the Clintons sold to the Russians).

      So far the United States Insitu miners (like UR-Energy, Peninsula Energy, Anfield Resources, and some of UEC’s assets) are severely under-valued in this low priced Uranium spot market. Ironically they don’t require as high of a prices as the hard rock miners, because they are simply injecting fluids into the ground to dissolve and recover Uranium, but most investors are just all jacked up about the Athabasca Basin (due to the very high grades).

      Ironically most of the Athabasca Basin exploration plays (except Nexgen) will have huge water issues to deal with, just like Cameco has had to endure, and will have to go very deep to access all the reserves. In contrast, the ISR miners are much less disruptive to the land, easier to permit, and have lower operational costs.

      For example: Excelsior Mining is doing the exact same thing only with Copper.

      I like Anfield Resources and feel that when the worm turns they’ll be an easy multi-bagger from present prices. When that happens in the Uranium markets is the real mystery.

      Ever Upward!

        Uranium One opened a trading company
        Sept 11, 2017

        “Uranium One, a ROSATOM global mining company, has opened a trading company Uranium One Trading AG in Zug (Switzerland).”

        By establishing a trading company, Uranium One aims to increase its share on the international uranium market through spot and midterm transactions, support for the company’s long-term portfolio of contracts, and development of a new direction – trading of metals and minerals in demand for “new” and nuclear energy as well as liquid exchange-traded metals.”

        “The establishment of a trading company is a response to new realities and market trends. This will allow us to respond more promptly to requests, to effectively meet customers’ needs, – said Vasily Konstantinov, the President of Uranium One Group. – The competition between traders in the field of long-term contracts on the global uranium market is growing. This is due to the fact that many world utilities have expanded their lists of potential suppliers with trading companies, which traditionally included only uranium producers before. Another market trend is the reduction of contracting period and the transition from long-term to midterm and spot contracts”.

All government does in this area is help people avoid growing up and taking responsibility for themselves and their property.

        “A ban on combustion-engine vehicles will help push both local and global automakers to shift toward electric vehicles, a carrot-and-stick approach that could boost sales of energy-efficient cars and trucks and reduce air pollution while serving the strategic goal of cutting oil imports. The government offers generous subsidies to makers of new-energy vehicles.

        from #index, 21 Jul 2017, 16:53


        @Excelsior – “My thesis is that $RIC and $KDX are solid Canadian smaller Mid-tier producers and that a larger Mid-Tier or Major would like to buy into their forward #production economics and keep drilling to expand their reserves and mine life. That’s exactly what played out for the aforementioned companies. Many companies only have a few years of mine life at any given time because drilling out 10-20 years of resources will not be properly rewarded by the marketplace. Instead they earn while they learn, and replace reserves as they go. ”

        ” Both $RIC and $KDX seem like potential targets to me, out of existing producers, and like I said it wouldn’t surprise me if either one got nabbed over the next year. Of the 2 $RIC seems more imminent, because $KDX has a big capital spend they are investing in expansion this year. Once that expansion is completed and the numbers are in, I could see a larger entity putting a target on their chest. There aren’t that many small/Mid-tier Canadian producers left on the market, and it may be a merger of equals with some other Mid-Tier…..”
