In an Oct. 9 research note, Fundamental Research Corp. analyst Siddarth Rajeev indicated that Golden Arrow Resources Corp.'s (GRG:TSX.V; GAC:FSE; GARWF:OTCQB) recent share price drop represents a current buying opportunity. Fundamental has a CA$0.98 per share fair value estimate on Golden Arrow; the company's stock price is now around CA$0.29 per share.
The average enterprise value:resource ratio of the other junior silver companies in Fundamental's coverage universe has decreased to CA$1.63 per silver equivalent ounce from CA$2.29 since May, when the research firm initiated coverage on Golden Arrow, due to the decrease in silver prices. Golden Arrow's shares are trading at CA$0.54 per ounce, much lower than the average.
Aside from its current valuation, Golden Arrow is an attractive investment, in part, Rajeev pointed out, due to its joint venture partnership, with SSR Mining, in Puna Operations Inc., which is composed of the Chinchillas and Pirquitas projects. Golden Arrow owns 25% of Puna; SSR owns 75%.
This year, 3 to 4.4 million ounces of silver are to be produced at Chinchillas, according to SSR Mining estimates. "GRG will receive a 25% share of the net profit," Rajeev emphasized. Ore from Chinchillas will be processed at Pirquitas, and that should begin soon.
Also, Golden Arrow owns the Antofalla project in Argentina, which recently yielded "encouraging" drill results, indicated Rajeev. They included 3 meters of 191 grams per ton silver, 1 meter of 283 grams per ton silver and 2.1% zinc.
Rajeev reiterated that Golden Arrow is rated Buy.[NLINSERT]
