Canaccord Initiates Coverage - Expecting a DOUBLE


GCM.t ... Weekly : 10d / Last: C$4.78 + 2.36%

sGmVxQt.gif

Ratio:  GCM.t to UGL:

QUOBqvc.png

 
Price: C$4.75.        TARGET: C$9.50
 
On the path to becoming a LatAm mid-tier producer
Investment Recommendation: BUY

We are initiating coverage of Gran Colombia Gold (GCM-TSX) with a BUY rating and a C$9.50 target price.

 Gran Colombia is a South America-focused gold producer operating the Segovia underground complex in Colombia and advancing the
recently acquired Toroparu project in Guyana. The company produces ~200koz/year from Segovia, and we believe with Toroparu it has the potential to double production to ~400koz in the next few years and diversify its production base.

Solid operating record and foundation at Segovia. Segovia is a historic mining district in Colombia that dates back more than 150 years. Gran Colombia acquired Segovia in 2010 and has modernized both the operation and exploration efforts, with the production rate increasing almost four-fold from 400tpd to just under 1,600 tpd currently (a further expansion to 2,000 tpd is expected to be completed later this year). In tandem, gold production has increased from 69 koz in 2011 to 196 koz in 2020 (+186%), with total cash costs declining from $1,254/oz in 2011 to $699/oz in 2020 (-44%). Like many high-grade, narrow-vein underground mines, the operation has more than replaced ounces mined, with its overall resource base increasing to ~2.5 Moz at YE20 from ~1 Moz in 2010. Segovia is located on a prospective large land package with mining on only four of 27 known veins on the property.

Potential to double gold production with Toroparu. In June 2021, Gran Colombia completed the friendly all-share acquisition of Gold X for total consideration of ~$250 million or $24/oz of M&I+I for the Toroparu development project in Guyana – one of the largest undeveloped gold projects in the Americas, with a total M&I resource of 7.35Moz plus another 3.15Moz of inferred. Gold X released a 2019 PEA outlining average annual production of 188koz/year at an average AISC of $780 over a 24-year mine life. Initial capex was estimated at $378 million

Updated Toroparu PEA expected imminently. Gran Colombia plans to complete an updated PEA outlining its vision for the project in the next few weeks. We expect an overall smaller operation but with a higher-grade underground operation. Gold production is targeted at 180-200koz/year, effectively doubling the company's current gold output. We expect initial capex to be at or below the 2019 PEA of $378 million. Our base case NPV for Toroparu is based on the Gold X PEA with more conservative operating and capital cost estimates, and a 7% discount rate, pending more details about Gran Colombia’s plan, which we expect should improve the economics.

Solid balance sheet and well funded for Toroparu. We believe the company is
well positioned to fund the project, with the net proceeds from a recent $300 million offering of senior unsecured notes combined with $138 million in potential funding from Wheaton Precious Metals, $58 million in cash on hand and ongoing operating cash flow.

Monthly dividend: high yield and modest payout ratio. Gran Colombia pays a monthly dividend of C$0.015/sh, ~3.9% yield, one of the highest in our coverage universe. On our price deck, we estimate a payout ratio of 15%–20% of sustaining FCF.

Re-rating Coming?

Our target multiples are at the lower end of the range we typically use given GCM is currently a single asset producer and with potential development risk at Toroparu. However, we see potential for the company's valuation to rerate higher as Toroparu advances. Gran Colombia is trading at 0.28x NAV and 1.8x 2022E EBITDA, vs. peers at 0.59x and 3.4x, respectively.

Globe says gains seen coming quickly at Gran Colombia

2021-09-29 07:39 ET - In the News

The Globe and Mail reports in its Wednesday edition that Canaccord analyst Carey MacRury began coverage on Gran Colombia Gold with a "buy" ranking. The Globe's David Leeder writes in the Eye On Equities column that Mr. MacRury is targeting the shares at $9.50. Analysts on average target the shares at $11.21. Mr. MacRury likes its "solid" operating record and foundation at its Segovia underground complex in Colombia. Mr. MacRury believes the company is "on the path to becoming a Latin American mid-tier producer." As well, he thinks gains are likely to be seen quite quickly at its recently acquired Toroparu project in Guyana. He says in a note: "Gran Colombia's shares have underperformed following the recent acquisition of Gold X. We note that Gran Colombia is trading at 0.5 times NAV on the basis of Segovia alone, suggesting to us that the market is not currently pricing in a lot of value for Toroparu. We expect that to start to change once the company releases its plan and economics for the project and as the project advances. ... We see the potential for the company's valuation to rerate higher as Toroparu advances into production and the company transitions into a more diversified, mid-tier producer."

TORONTO, Oct. 13, 2021 --

Gran Colombia Gold Corp. (TSX: GCM; OTCQX: TPRFF) announced today that it produced a total of 17,213 ounces of gold at its Segovia Operations in September 2021 bringing the total gold production for the third quarter of 2021 to 49,848 ounces compared with 51,555 ounces from Segovia in the third quarter of 2020. The Company also produced 52,382 ounces of silver at Segovia in the third quarter of 2021, up from 47,560 ounces of silver in the third quarter last year. For the first nine months of 2021, Segovia’s gold and silver production totalled 151,104 ounces and 164,270 ounces, respectively, up from 146,278 ounces of gold and 134,820 ounces of silver in the first nine months of 2020.

Lombardo Paredes, Chief Executive Officer of Gran Colombia, commenting on the Company’s latest results, said, “We have maintained a steady pace of production in the third quarter of 2021, which included a planned four-day maintenance shutdown at the Maria Dama plant in July. With our trailing 12-months total gold production from Segovia at the end of the third quarter amounting to 201,187 ounces of gold, up 2% over 2020, we are confident we will meet our production guidance at Segovia for the full year of 200,000 to 220,000 ounces of gold. We are on track to complete our expansion of the Maria Dama plant to 2,000 tonnes per day (“tpd”) in the fourth quarter of 2021 and our mine and brownfield exploration programs are proceeding as planned. In addition, commissioning of the new polymetallic plant at Segovia is nearing completion and we expect to have our first concentrate production in the fourth quarter of 2021.

At the end of September 2021, we had a cash position of approximately US$329 million, including the net proceeds ....

Lucky timing on ARIS.t: $1.75 +0.30, +22%. 

I picked up shares two days ago, and it popped by over 20% today.  NEWS at last !

a 42% increase in Measured and Indicated mineral resources to 5.8 million ounces (Moz) of gold,

Company ————  (symbol) : $ Price: shs OS: Mkt.Cap.: Gcm%: $-Value  (%GCM): Prior GCM%

 Aris Gold Corp.       (ARIS.t ) : C$1.44: 137.8M: $198.4M: 44.3% : $ 87.9 M: (17.6%): (was 44.3%)

Each GCM share is backed by 0.62 ARIS shares,  (61/98= 62%), so today's gain of 0.30 in ARIS x 62%= $0.186 gain in GCM. 

In fact, GCM is now up 0.17, 3,1% on a day when GDXJ has risen 2.5%.  So more to come maybe

I call this a "somewhat disappointing quarter":

still, they reported a positive free cash flow and a quarterly profit of US$0.26

TORONTO, Nov. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gran Colombia Gold Corp. (TSX: GCM; OTCQX: TPRFF) announced today the release of its unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying management’s discussion and analysis (MD&A) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. All financial figures contained herein are expressed in U.S. dollars (“USD”) unless otherwise noted.

EXCERPTS

  • Gran Colombia’s gold production from its Segovia Operations totaled 49,848 ounces in the third quarter of 2021 compared with 51,555 ounces in the third quarter of 2020. Total gold production from Segovia for the first nine months of 2021 amounted to 151,104 ounces compared with 146,278 ounces in the first nine months last year. In October 2021, Segovia’s gold production was 19,456 ounces bringing the Company’s trailing 12-months total gold production from its Segovia Operations at the end of October 2021 to 203,739 ounces, up 4% over 2020. The Company remains on track with its annual production guidance and has narrowed the range to between 203,000 to 210,000 ounces of gold from Segovia in 2021. Including Marmato production up to February 4, 2021, consolidated gold production for the first nine months of 2021 was 153,532 ounces compared with 162,929 ounces in the first nine months last year.

  • Consolidated revenue amounted to $90.7 million and $289.0 million in the third quarter and first nine months of 2021, respectively, compared with $113.1 million and $291.2 million in the third quarter and first nine months, respectively, of 2020. Spot gold prices in the third quarter of 2021 were lower than the same quarter a year ago, decreasing the Company’s realized gold price (1)by 5% to an average of $1,784 per ounce sold in the third quarter of 2021 compared with an average of $1,875 per ounce sold in the third quarter last year.

  • At the Segovia Operations, total cash costs (1)averaged $845 per ounce in the third quarter of 2021, compared with $722 per ounce in the third quarter of 2020, bringing the average for the first nine months of 2021 to $812 per ounce compared with $659 per ounce in the first nine months last year.

  • All-in sustaining costs (“AISC”) (1) per ounce sold for the Segovia Operations were $1,218 and $1,145 in the third quarter and first nine months, respectively, of 2021 compared with $1,031 and $939 in the third quarter and first nine months, respectively, of 2020. The year-over-year increase in Segovia’s AISC in 2021 reflects (i) the increased total cash costs as described above and (ii) an increase in exploration and mine geology, mine development and other sustaining capital expenditures.

  • Adjusted EBITDA (1) amounted to $39.9 million for the third quarter of 2021 compared with $56.7 million in the third quarter last year. This brings the total adjusted EBITDA for the first nine months of 2021 to $134.3 million compared with $144.7 million in the first nine months of 2020.

  • The Company’s balance sheet benefitted from the Senior Notes financing, raising its cash position to $329.6 million and working capital to $331.5 million at the end of September 2021.

  • The Company reported net income of $25.3 million ($0.26 per share) in the third quarter of 2021 compared with $18.0 million ($0.39 per share) in the third quarter of 2020 reflecting an improvement in other income (expense) items and lower income tax expense
