Investment summary

The upgrade follows the January announcement of bulk sample metallurgical test results by Gipronickel that indicated recoveries of seven metals 13.0% higher than those derived from earlier bench-scale tests.

Executive Interview - Amur Minerals

Industry outlook

Based on the existing operational blueprint, we calculate fully diluted values for concentrate sales (toll smelting), low-grade matte, high-grade matte and refined metal project options of 39 US cents, 51c, 41c and 50c, respectively (at a 9p share price and assuming 80% financial leverage). However, this could increase if the mine plan is reconfigured to advance and increase high-grade underground production (as seems increasingly likely in the wake of RPM's trade-off study). Updated estimates also imply a potential c US$150m capex saving in the cost of Amur's access road.
