In a Dec. 19 research note, analyst Joe Reagor reported that Denison Mines Corp. (DML:TSX; DNN:NYSE.MKT) intends to advance Wheeler River, its Athabasca Basin uranium project, into the permitting phase, beginning with an environmental assessment.
"We view this as a positive step towards eventually developing the project," he added.
The forecasted budget for moving forward in 2019 is $10.3 million. Denison has committed to funding its part, about 90% of the total.
Reagor noted that a potential near-term, "significant positive" catalyst for the uranium explorer/developer is the receipt of successful results from in situ recovery testing for the Phoenix deposit, where it intends to do wellfield and pilot plan testing.
Permitting activities, including the economic assessment, will not likely move the stock in 2019óbut could in subsequent years, indicated Reagor.
ROTH's valuation on Denison remains the same, as do its Buy rating and $1.40 per share price target. The energy company's share price today is about $0.63.[NLINSERT]
