Now is the time to pay attention to MTO.V shares as the current valuation is poised to make upward adjustments to reflect forward discounted future revenues of Metanor as a gold producer with a solid expandable resource base in a mining friendly region.

The newly refurbished mill is currently producing at over 800 TPD and will increase capacity to 1200 TPD in the fall of 2009. With recent spot price of gold near $CDN1,050/oz, MTO.V is experiencing significant positive cash flow from low cost production (and costs should be significantly lower when high grade Bachelor Lake gold comes online). Production in 2010 should conservatively come in a 55k oz. Mining MarketWatch notes that Metanor is currently upgrading the mill to 1200 TPD and should generating ~70K ounces/yr when Bachelor Lake underground comes online by mid 2010.

According to Serge Roy, CEO and Ghislain Morin, President and COO in a July 16, 2009 update "the work to date is under budget and on schedule, our team has done very well controlling costs and staying on schedule." Management has been impressive in its ability to execute upon plans to achieve this milestone, Metanor now sits with no long term debt, in excess of $140M in 100% owned infrastructure (replacement value), and in a cash flow positive production mode. With ~104M shares outstanding and trading under CDN$0.60/share, the market cap of MTO relative to its resource base/production expansion plans and future revenues make MTO.V among one of the most attractive vehicles for gold investors.
