AZCO MINING - AZMN
Wheaton River and its merger with GoldCorp have become the subject of Wall Street legend rising from sub-one hundred million market capitalizations into a combined multi-Billion Dollar giant over a relatively short time span growth of just a few years. In fact Reuters reports Goldcorp NYSE: GG, literally grew from a $50 Million investment into North America's 4th biggest gold producer.
In light of soaring gold prices could Azco Mining Inc - AZMN be next? It certainly is beginning to look like a junior version of Goldcorp, with a growing market cap approaching $30 Million, yet with proven in-ground assets and extensively drilled reserves, that by some measures at today's prices has Azco's gross value approaching $1.5 Billion, its market cap could easily rise to 10% of those values or $150 Million.
Azco Mining Inc. (OTC: AZMN.PK), a U.S. based mining and exploration enterprise, controls three projects that contain immense in-ground mineral resources and constitute promising mining opportunities. These projects are the 100% owned Ortiz Gold project in New Mexico and the 100% owned Black Canyon mica project in Arizona and the just acquired 100% interest in New Planet: A World class rare mineral Micaceous Iron Oxide deposit. At the Ortiz gold project, Azco Mining recently acquired exclusive mineral rights to a huge 90 square mile area where $40 million in exploration and development work in the 1980’s identified two million ounces of gold resources with excellent mining potential. The large area under control provides tremendous exploration upside in addition to the 2 million ounces of gold worth some $975 million.
At the Black Canyon mica project, Azco Mining plans to finalize construction and to start up its operating facilities on which it has spent over $15 million. When construction is completed, the Company will be poised to increase initial sales and begin profitable operations. Black Canyon represents an enormous source of supply of high quality mica that is a valuable additive in the growing cosmetics, plastics and pigment industries. Azco’s drilled in-ground premium mica resource has been valued at $167-$212 million by a third-party geological engineering firm. This valuation represents 422 million pounds of mica, which is only a small fraction of the estimated total resource.
The New Planet project consists of 31 patented mining claims covering 523 acres in La Paz County, Arizona contains a World class resource of micaceous iron oxide ("MIO"), an industrial mineral valued around the world as an important coating pigment used in corrosion-control systems for structural steelwork. The New Planet property represents an unusual opportunity to acquire, under attractive terms and in the United States, an exceptional ore deposit characterized by high grade, favorable metallurgy and a drilled resource sufficient to sustain an open pit mining operation for over thirty years. At today's MIO prices of around $0.50/lb, the in-ground value of recoverable MIO in that portion of the deposit that has been drilled exceeds $300 million.
With Gold soaring to almost $500 per ounce, Azco's peers US Gold USGL and El Capitan Resources ECPN have both soared on bright outlooks for their respective deposits and valuing Azco's proven reserves against their inferred reserves could soon well see AZMN trading at comparable valuations of near $150 Million or $2.50 as Azco clearly seems extremely undervalued in comparison.
Azco Mining Inc. is a U.S. based mining and exploration enterprise with an emphasis on gold, copper and industrial minerals. Azco owns mineral lease rights to 90 square miles at the Ortiz gold property in New Mexico, where previous exploration has identified resources containing two million ounces of gold. Azco also owns and operates the Black Canyon mica deposit in Arizona, which contains a large resource of mica and bi-product feldspathic sand.
Industry titan Morningstar has recently generated an unusually large number of alerts and Barchart.com issued very positive technical analysis based on 13 key technical indicators which resulted in a 100% BUY rating for shares of AZMN. A copy of this analysis is available at http://cfrn.net .
