'Pivotal Year' Expected for Gold Explorer
Research Report

Share on Stocktwits


In the wake of an exploration update, ROTH Capital Partners updated its outlook for this company's projects in the American West.

An update by U.S. Gold Corp. (USAU:NASDAQ) on its Copper King project, located in Wyoming, prompted commentary by Joe Reagor of ROTH Capital Partners in an Aug. 7 research report.

"We believe this year is a pivotal year for USAU as it looks to grow its resource base at Copper King and make a significant discovery at Keystone," Reagor wrote, noting both rating (a Buy) and target price ($2.75 per share) are being maintained.

Reagor also noted that the current drill program on US Gold's Keystone project, located in Nevada, "needs to produce results. We believe this year's planned drill program at Keystone will have a significant impact on the project's future."

Thus far, Reagor explained, the explorer has only performed scout hole drilling at Keystone. Should a more complete drilling program reveal a discovery, the analyst believes it "could provide a significant positive catalyst for the company."

On Copper King, the company plans "to complete 10 holes totaling 10,000 feet at the project," Reagor wrote, adding initial results, expected within two months, could "determine the development path of the project."

ROTH expects production to begin at Copper King in 2021, but notes an increase in resource as a result of exploration could affect the timeline. "However," Reagor stated, "this would also likely lead to improved project economics and thus, we would view this as a positive development."
