My stock pick of the month for July was Sonoro Gold, which trades on the US OTC as SMOFF and on the TSXV and SGO. The stock had a tremendous run in July and just tested making a new high yesterday. I still own it and still think it can go higher from here. Yes, it will have down days within a strong rally trend, but it has succeeded so far in executing its corporate plans.
In my analysis, though, I’m mainly a chart guy and look at broad factors in a stock. I’m really not an expert geologist and have never been to a mining property. The thing is, if I went to one, I wouldn’t really know what I was looking at. So, I stay within the lane of what works for me. Sonoro’s plans are to put a mine into production and I have found in my experience that small cap miners that go into production tend be the best performing stocks in the mining space.
All that said, Sonoro has been garnering more and more attention. This week a research report was released about the company by Anthony Garson and Associates Inc., based in Toronto, Canada.
In this report Garson writes, “Under a scenario of a 5.5-year mine life and annual production rate of 50,000 oz. of gold, it is this opinion that the current share price (C$0.36) is substantially below valuation metrics tabulated in Table 5 below. De-risking the Cerro Caliche project should close ratio discrepancies implying a near-
term to post-commercial price target of C$0.45-C$0.60 and C$0.60-C$1.20, respectively. A higher share price can be achieved if aggressive exploration is undertaken to expand known reserves to target 70 million-100 million mt containing more than 1-1.5 million oz. of gold. This can be determined over the next 2-3 years. If successful, open-pit mining operations might undertake expansion in the third year of production. Production rates could be increased to 20,000 mt/day from 15,000 mt/day to produce 80,000 oz. of gold per year and provide a mine life of 12-14 years.”
