Howlett Research has published research report and opinion on Abcourt Mines Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ABI) (OTCBB: ABMBF). The Analyst coverage on Abcourt Mines Inc. includes a Speculative Buy recommendation and a near term price target of 100% upside valuation appreciation based on a number of potential project scenarios/catalysts.
The full Analyst report may be found at: http://sectornewswire.com/Analyst_Report_Abcourt_10-07.pdf
The qualified Analyst has identified Abcourt Mines Inc as significantly undervalued with its five 100% owned projects being heavily discounted at current share price valuation of under CDN$0.50. The Abcourt-Barveau silver-zinc deposit alone has significant resources which the Company's independent feasibility report indicates as economically mineable with a 13 year mine life and this one project alone is significantly discounted with the market capitalization of Abcourt Mines Inc. under CDN$20M; Abcourt has well in excess of a billion US dollars of zinc resources at current market prices. Abcourt Mines also has 19,644,354 ounces of silvers at the Abcourt-Barvue project and 198,744 ounces of gold at it's Elder Gold Project.
The Analyst provides a compelling risk-reward picture for inventors as Abcourt is currently undervalued at between a mere $0.01 - $0.02 per Zn-equivalent lb found at the Abcourt-Barvue project alone, a level at the low end generally attributed to earlier stage exploration companies with resources. The currently share price is only attributing value to the in-ground zinc resources at the Abcourt-Barvue project - ignoring its large silver resources, other properties and the significant infrastructure the Company possesses from when it was a past producer at the silver-zinc operation and the Elder Gold mine sites.
Abcourt now has active programs at several base metal properties and a gold property (all 100% owned), all located in Quebec's prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt:
1. The Abcourt-Barvue Zinc-Silver property unifies two past producers with significant exploration/development work. It has been the subject of a recent optimized feasibility study on a 500 million lb. Zn, 13+ million ounce Ag orebody over a 13 year minelife. Additional inferred resources and clear exploration potential could result in a long life asset. Abcourt is continuing with a development program at Abcourt-Barvue (permitting, raising financing, etc.)
2. Elder Gold Property. Plans are to re-open the 43-101 compliant 200,000 ounce gold resource following a successful drill program in2005/06.
3. The Jonpol Copper-Zinc-Silver property has known resources and short term exploration potential to add more. Jonpol also represents a historic target for a large massive sulphide deposit. A $300,000, 2500 meter drill program has begun.
4. The Aldermac Zinc-Copper property, with known resources at the previous mine and undeveloped high grade discovery/resource in 1987/88. There is considerable valuable underground development. Abcourt is now preparing for a $300,000 drilling program there.
