    (CAML) Central Asia Metals PLC - Share Chat, Oct 8, 2019
  1. Groucho

    Central Asia Metals (CAML LN)# Central Asia Metals (CAML LN) has delivered another quarter of strong production with QoQ increases in copper, lead and zinc production of 11%, 3% and 5% respectively and annual increases of 3% and 8% for copper and zinc while lead production was marginally lower YoY by -3%. With Q3 2019 production of 4kt of copper, 6.2kt of zinc and 7.4kt of lead CAML is well on track to meet the initial guidance and our production estimates for the full year 2019.

    At Kounrad, nine-month production of 10.6kt is broadly unchanged YoY while sales of 10.1kt were lower due to a delay in the timing of sales in Q3. We expect this to be resolved over the balance of 2019. Our forecast of 13.4kt for the full year now appears conservative given that CAML has now produced 79% of our estimate, however, company guidance remains unchanged at 13-13.5kt of copper and there is typically a seasonal impact in Q4 due to the winter and therefore we maintain our forecast. We also note that CAML completed preparations increasing flow capacity at Kounrad with increased pipeline diameter on certain sections as well improvements to the collector trenches around the dumps.

    At Sasa ore mined of 207kt was up 2.3% QoQ and 0.3% YoY while plant feed was also up 3% QoQ and 2% YoY to 210.2kt. As we have forecast, the initial changes to operating practices which are already being implemented due to the life of mine review which is currently underway. Zinc grades of 3.37 % were up in the quarter having averaged 3.31% YTD while recoveries further improved to 87.3% having averaged 86.9% YTD. This is also likely a result of the life of mine review improvements to the flow sheet and the successful integration of a stirred media detritor into the circuit. Lead grades were marginally lower at 3.71% compared to 3.74% YTD while lead recoveries were maintained through Q3 at 94.4%. CAML has now produced 77% of our zinc forecast of 22.9kt and 75% of our lead forecast of 28.9kt and we therefore leave our estimates unchanged.

    Having delivered a further period of robust operating performance we continue to expect CAML to deliver strong earnings performance through the balance of 2018 while trading on a dividend yield of 7% and on a one yr forward EV/EBITDA multiple of 4.6x we continue to believe there is significant upside potential in the shares.

    We reiterate our Buy recommendation and 292p target price which implies 44% upside and 51% on a total return basis.

    Vast Resources* (VAST LN) 0.22p, Mkt Cap £21m – Vast to agree agreement between Katanga and ZCDC next week at Chiadzwa in the Marange diamond fields Heritage Diamond Concession (Block T1A, 75% profit sharing agreement)

    • Vast Resources which has the ‘Katanga’ joint venture with Chiadzwa Mineral Resources which represents the Chiadzwa Community interests is to agree to work with ZMDC (Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company).

    • The agreement also settles historic claims by mutual consent.

    • Vast will update the market on the financing mechanism for the joint venture in due course

    • The deal should enable Vast to fast track the Heritage Diamond Concession alluvial diamond concession using a simple XRT sorting circuit.

    • The Marange Diamond Fields are still seen as highly prospective having supplied some 60mcts to date.

    • The Chiadzwa local community secured the mining license with the Company and will expect trial mining to start following agreement with ZMDC.

    An independent geological assessment previously indicated highlighted the prospectivity of the concession with proximal placers draining the Marange Diamond Fields showing grades of 50-500cpht attracting average prices of $80/ct. Grades are estimated more typically to be 100-200cpht.

    • There is potential for discovery of some remnants of the basal Umkondo (conglomerate) unit in the concession, which runs at grades from 100-3,000cpht elsewhere in the Marange Diamond Fields.

    Vast’s own projections are based on 50cpht and $60/ct suggesting the site may potentially generate $15m in revenue on expenditure of $6m per quarter in six months and cost $10m in capex..

    • The Marange diamond fields are known for their rich diamonds and have previously subjected to targeted EU Sanctions on ZMDC, the Zimbabwe state mining company. Vast is looking to mine an area at Marange that has not been previously mined by the Zimbabwe state or a Chinese military group which was said to have taken over an area of the Marange diamond fields at one stage.

    • The government evicted all diamond mining companies in 2016 including two Chinese joint venture companies from Marange after they refused to merge with ZMDC. The move may have been part of a broader purge of Chinese companies which were seen to be exploiting Zimbabwe.

    • The Heritage concession is owned by the Marange-Zimunya Community Share Ownership Trust which has kept the concession free of exploitation and has received an undertaking from the Government of Zimbabwe for a licence to mine on the Heritage Concession.

    • The Marange diamond fields have been the subject of a Global Witness investigation uncovering evidence linking Zimbabwe’s state and partisan security forces to a decade of disappearing diamond wealth.

    • Chinese and other mining companies have been accused of syphoning value out of Marange and while much of the easy-to-mine alluvial diamonds have been mined western mining knowhow is needed for the development of more sophisticated mines.

    • Local community groups are also keen to regain control over rights to mine the Marange licenses and have invited Vast to exercise their former rights to mine certain licenses. There is no suggestion of any improper links with the military.

    Turner Pope Research NoteToday 12:17
    W Resources (WRES) is currently focused on near-term production from its wholly-owned La Parrilla tungsten and tin mine located in southwest Spain.
    The Company is in the final construction stage of the new large-scale concentrator plant and has already commissioned the new crusher and jig plants. The newly commissioned crusher and jig plants are now operating at near design capacity. As such, we expect the Company will be able to ramp-up production during Q3 2019.

    We value the La Parrilla project on a DCF basis given its near-term production and provide a relative valuation based on our selected tungsten explorers for the Régua project. Assuming a discount rate of 10%, a flat long-term tungsten price of US$300/mtu and inputs from the FID, we calculate an NPV of £85.1m or 1.41p per share. To this we then add an implied EV of £3.9m or 0.07p per share, based on our average EV/resource multiple of US$3.2/mtu to the Régua project. Taken together, we calculate an indicative enterprise value of £89.0 which translates into an equity value of £64.8m or 1.07p per share, representing a 155% upside to WRES’ current share price.

    Wolf Minerals (WLFE LN) SUSPENDED – Liquidators selling spirals from Drakelands • The announcement today by W Resources included the information that the liquidators of Wolf Minerals had sold 72 spirals from the mothballed Drakelands mine in Devon.

    • It is unclear whether all of the spirals from Drakelands have been sold or whether some remain on site but their disposal suggests that efforts to reopen the mine under new ownership are proving difficult.

    • In our opinion, as long as the principal items of the crushing and grinding circuit remain on site, the re-opening of Drakelands remains relatively achievable as spirals should be comparatively inexpensive and straightforward to replace. However, with the current price of the benchmark ammonium paratungstate price languishing at levels last seen in early 2017, potential purchasers may be few and far between – or may simply be taking a hard-headed view of the acquisition price.

    • In addition to the continuing difficulties at Drakelands, yesterday’s news of the setback to funding the Sirius Minerals project in Yorkshire casts a further shadow over hopes of a resurgence in the UK mining industry.

    Firetower project - drilling commenced June 19th. News due!

    Stage One of Havieron’s JV drilling campaign in its later stages. Will #Newcrest commit another $10m expenses and move to stage 2? Any more strikes like these and they’d be mad not to. Stay tuned for more core results this month!

    Patterson Range East - Comprehensive ground gravity and surface geochemistry is expected to commence in August.

    New fix for smart meters still riddled with issues
    Households have waited years for next-generation devices to solve past problems. But fresh flaws are now coming to light, writes Sam Meadows

    Around one in five second-generation smart meters, designed to fix their predecessors’ flaw of “going dumb” when a user switches energy supplier, has had problems displaying energy usage or connecting to the new national data network, Telegraph Money has discovered.

    This means that households 
could be unable to track their 
energy use and their supplier may not be receiving reliable meter readings – the two main benefits 
of the devices.

    The majority of the 14 million smart meters now in use are first-generation models, known as “Smets 1”, many of which risk losing their digital functions if a consumer switches supplier.

    The new version, “Smets 2”, has been installed widely this year. These meters are supposed to connect to a national data network, allowing households to switch seamlessly. But the long-awaited roll-out has not been going entirely to plan.

    In May, one medium-sized energy firm, Bulb, said that of 24,000 Smets 2 meters it had installed, roughly 7,000 were not working as they should.

    Another energy supplier told Telegraph Money that of 25,000 it had installed recently, 5,000 had required another visit from an engineer to rectify problems.

    This newspaper has previously reported on problems with the communications network in the North, which effectively cut users off from switchable smart meters. This has yet to be fully resolved.

    Most concerning is an issue known in the industry as “bricking”, which is when a device shuts down due to a perceived security flaw and needs to be replaced. An executive at one supplier said the meters were hypersensitive to tampering and hacking and that manufacturer testing appeared to trigger a security measure that risked shutting down a small number of meters. The executive said this was often not noticed until they had been installed, meaning, in some cases, that a replacement was necessary. The cost of replacing a meter is around £200, likely to be passed on to consumers through energy bills.

    The £11bn smart meter programme has fallen behind schedule and tens of millions more installations are needed within 18 months to meet the deadline. More than two million meters are operating in “dumb” mode, usually caused by a switch of supplier.

    One energy insider said: “This is a major infrastructure project, but it has been rushed. The introduction of Wi-Fi had a lot of these same issues, but that equipment spent 10 years going from the lab to commercial use. With smart meters they have just gone ahead and a lot of the problems are coming to light only when they are in people’s homes.”

    Alan Whitehead, the shadow minister for energy and climate change, said smart meters represented a vital upgrade, but the roll-out had been mishandled.

    “The Government’s handling of this has been quite catastrophic,” he said. “It’s time for a bit of honesty about the failure of targets and the technological problems being faced. A new approach is needed to roll out this essential technology.”

    The Data Communications Company, responsible for the national data network, said almost 1.5 million meters were now connected and installation rates in the North were seven times higher than at the start of the year.

    A spokesman for the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy said: “More than 14 million smart meters are operating across the country, including more than 1.5 million second-generation devices. Millions of consumers and businesses are already reaping the benefits as we move to a cheaper, more efficient and reliable energy system.”
