Latest Research

Argonaut visited MZI Resources’ (MZI) Keysbrook mineral sands project last week. The standout observation from our tour of the mine and wet processing facility was the rate at which the project is ramping-up. Just one week since commissioning began, the wet concentration plant (WCP) is stringing together shifts at nameplate production. The Doral Mineral Separation Plant (MSP) at Picton (dry separation) also produced the first batch of saleable product last week. MZI is finalising a ~$45m equity raising at $0.40/sh which will be used to repay US$25.5m in bridging loans to Resource Capital Fund (RCF) as well as working capital to advance expansion and improved recovery studies. Argonaut maintains a BUY recommendation with a $0.73 target price.
