Analyst Comment: News flow from Minbos was slower than we originally anticipated during the second half of 2015, mainly due to the potential merger of the Cacata project with the joint venture partner not proceeding. 2016 however started brightly as Minbos completed a capital raising ($3.4m) at a 150% premium to their share price, which allowed for the BFS to commence.
We believe the next 12 months will potentially be the most important in the company's history, as the release of the first stage of the BFS (currently underway) will determine the processed route for the projects development (wet or dry processing facility). We favour the dry facility (simple scrub and screen of ore) due to the lower initial capital cost requirement (TSI estimate - US$40m - 100% project) as well as potentially allowing mining to commence as early as next year.
Valuation: We maintain our belief that the market has overlooked the substantial underlying value at the Cacata project, as we determined an after tax valuation for 100% of the project of US$280m. We discounted our valuation by 50% as a number of our assumptions require confirmation (BFS). This however still results in a valuation of $0.033/share, which is a significant premium to the current share price ($0.004/share).
