some bullish comments from minesite.com

..............During the course of the year, Crowflight expects to table an updated feasibility study that will take into capital cost savings, then they expect to sign a definitive off-take agreement for the purchase of the Bucko Lake nickel concentrate, a project loan agreement and, last but not least, advancements on project permitting. Late in 2005, an earlier feasibility study released in late 2005 envisioned that a 1,000 tonne per day operation using the then resources of 1.8 million tonnes grading 2.1% nickel would yield a 23.9% rate of return and a net present value using a 10% discount rate of US$22.6 million at an average life-of-mine nickel price of US$5 per pound.......................

Crowflight Completes Bankable Feasibility Study on Bucko Lake Nickel Deposit, Study Demonstrates Potential for 118% Internal Rate of Return at US$8.00/Pound Nickel

(& 417% @ 12$)

 

........(BFS) is an updated version of the feasibility study completed December 2005 that incorporates cost savings from the purchase of used capital equipment, improved revenue from the recently announced definitive offtake agreement with Xstrata Nickel, and a firm contractor quote for underground mine development and contractor mining. The BFS does not yet take into account the impact of the recently announced 32% increase in Measured and Indicated Resources at the Bucko Deposit , but relies on the Proven and Probable Reserves from the December 2005 feasibility study..........

 

.....We're confident that once we've factored-in the recently announced addition of 25 million pounds of contained nickel Resources which have the potential to extend the mine life by about two years, we'll see an even more robust rate of return for the project......

 

there is also a webcast

market responded well; up 18% 54c

however a big sell of 1m @ 50c and no news of permit

Crowflight Finalizes $55 Million Debt Facility to Complete Bucko Lake Nickel Mine Development

Wednesday January 23

http://www.crowflight.com/s/Corporate.asp

mcap 140m$ fd at 50c

..........Results from a Bankable Feasibility Study on the Bucko Lake Nickel Deposit, updated in March 2007, indicate that at a US$8.00 per pound nickel price, the mine would generate average annual cash flow of $55 million and deliver a 92% rate of return and a net present value of C$201 million (at an 8% discount rate). Production levels at Bucko are expected to be 1,000 tonnes per day or 11 to 14 million pounds of nickel per year over a seven-year mine life.....................

I like (and own a little of) CML and the new CEO. He used to be with Desert Sun.

 

That reminds me, the rest of the Desert Sun group is now running Largo Resources. I was very impressed with their potential after listening to their presentation in San Francisco. Largo will be one to watch in the coming years; they're still a long way from production.

 

Victory Nickel seems to have better metrics than CML, but they are also farther from production. CML should do well with nickel price holding strong.

Finally a nice high volume day for Crowflight:

 

CROWFLIGHT MINERALS INC. (Tier2(CDNX: CML.V)

Last Trade: 0.2150

Trade Time: 3:59PM ET

Change: 0.0550 (34.37%)

Volume: 2,159,355

Avg Vol (3m): 524,542

 

It has been a long ride down with this one. Glad they have those hedges in place as it looks like nickel is going to sit at marginal cost for a while.
