New York, NY, United States, 2007/10/19 - Madison Avenue Research Group Addendum to Supply Side Gold Mining Report with update of Upside Valuation/Summary on Metanor Resources Inc. (TSX-V:MTO) as Metanor begins blasting rock for it's newly refurbished gold mill, also 2008 Gold Price Forecast.
Madison Avenue Research Group via Sector Newswire has published an addendum to its Q2 report that explored a global gold mining supply side predicament, offering a 2008 gold price forecast review and Upside Valuation/Summary on Metanor Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MTO) (OTCBB: MEAOF) as Metanor has begun blasting rock for processing at its newly refurbished gold milling facilities.
A copy the addendum report/update along with new photos of current happenings may be viewed free of charge via web link found at the corporate webpage of MadisonAveResearch.com that will be made available for a limited time.
Excerpts from report regarding Metanor:
For those not familiar with the story, time to pay attention is now as in Q4 2007 Metanor Resources will commence gold production, pouring their first gold bar. Metanor will become a gold producer at their 100% owned Bachelor Lake Gold Mill in the prolific Abitibi mining District of Quebec. With the refurbishment of Metanor’s 1000 tonne capacity per day mill, initial mill output from the Q4 test batch is ready. Production next year should accelerate to 45K oz in 2008, ramping up to 65K oz in 2009. The mill is configured to produce dore bars of approximately 90% gold, with a small component of silver. MTO.V appears to offer exceptional opportunity; their 2008 and onwards EPS will likely be very significant as a debt free unhedged gold producer. The current market cap relative to expected revenues is disproportionate (analysts report pegs $3 per share price). With plans to readily upgrade the resource base from over 500,000 oz of gold to over 1,000,000 oz, with approximately 60M shares outstanding and currently trading under CDN$1/share, the present valuation of MTO.V provides exceptional opportunity for investors. ...There should be no further share dilution or bank financing in Metanor's future, as Mining Expert David Bonds put it "they're a pay-as-you go operation with Class A properties on their books". It is not often a new gold mine comes online in a stable jurisdiction, especially offering as much near term operational value and future potential as Metanor. Once the shares that are currently available in its current trading range are absorbed it is likely the stock price of MTO.V will rise significantly. There is just too much going for Metanor and its future prospects, the window of opportunity being made available by shares at the current price level (while still available) are considered by those in-the-know as extremely undervalued with tremendous near-term upside potential.
2007 Gold Price Forecast - Update/2008 Gold Price Forecast:
Madison Avenue Research Group's outlook for gold as articulated seven months ago (March 6, 2007) remains extremely bullish. Our sentiments at the time were shared with Louise Yamada, managing director of Yamada Technical Research Advisors LLC in New York, former head of technical research at Citigroup. Yamada saw (and correctly so) gold surpassing US$730 on its way to US$3,000 within a decade. "Gold is the purest play against the dollar,'' said Louise Yamada. Yamada is highly respected and was was voted Wall Street’s best technical analyst from 2001 to 2004.
2008 Gold Price Forecast: Madison Avenue Research Group's near term prognostication on gold echoes Robin Wilkin, technical analyst at J.P. Morgan who said "I am bullish on the metals complex and bearish on the dollar. I am still in the camp that believes that we will work towards $775 to start with, then $800 and then we could head up towards $850 at some stage".
Investment bank Morgan Stanley & Co., the second-biggest U.S. securities firm, said last week (Friday Oct 12, 2007) in its 2008 gold price forecast that:
- Gold may average $800 an ounce in 2008.
- Gold is expected to benefit from strong global growth and spreading inflation problems.
- Growth in demand, particularly from an expanding middle class in the developing world, would continue to be the main driver of gold prices in the long run.
- Inflation and dollar concerns have temporarily surged to centre stage.
- Global growth was able to progress as it had detached, from the United States, which is braced for further fallout from the crisis in credit markets caused by problems in the U.S. high risk mortgage sector.
