Paringa Resources (PNL) released a construction update of its Poplar Grove thermal coal mine citing minor delays from a significant flooding event. The site was impacted by the worst flooding in the Western Kentucky region in 20 years. The impact will likely push production back four weeks from late-August to September/October 2018. Importantly, the sites levy system mitigated any major impact to installed infrastructure or the mine box cut. PNL is trading at a deep discount to Argonaut’s $1.50/sh target price, and despite delays, it is just six months from first production. Recently announced US tariffs and declining US coal inventories should buoy domestic coal demand and prices. BUY maintained.
