Latest Research

MOD Resources (MOD) recently received an unsolicited, non-binding indicative offer from Sandfire Resources (SFR, BUY, $7.80/sh TP) of ~$0.38/sh.

Argonaut is expecting throughput to remain at the revised 3Mtpa rate and pre-production capital intensity to be roughly in-line with the PFS Base Case equating to ~US$230m. The Company is also working on financing options which may include a mix of debt and equity capital with a potential project or TopCo minority investment. BUY maintained.
