Strategic shareholder Frank Giustra has increased his stake in Blackwolf Copper and Gold as a part of the company's most recent private placement deal. Read on to see why analysts like this company's stock.

Blackwolf Copper and Gold Ltd. (BWCG:TSX.V) announced in a press release that the company has closed a private placement deal where Frank Giustra, a strategic shareholder, was a major investor. According to the press release, the private placement commenced on October 6, 2023, and ended on October 10, and included a total of CA$3,263,523 in gross proceeds and included a total of 13,598,050 units, comprised of one share and one purchase warrant of the company valued at CA$0.24 each.

Additionally, according to the company, "each share purchase warrant is exercisable to acquire one common share at a price of CA$0.35 per common share until October 17, 2025."

Frank Giustra, according to the press release, added 3,125,000 units of the company to his portfolio and now holds a total of 15,961,285 shares of the company.

Red Cloud Securities published a report on Blackwolf that rated the company as a "Buy" for investors and named a target price of CA$0.55 for the company

Morgan Lekstrom, the CEO of Blackwolf, stated, "We are elated to see such strong support from our strategic shareholder, Mr. Frank Giustra, and strong demand from new and existing shareholders."

He also commented on the success of many of the company's recent endeavors, such as drill programs and the acquisition of Optimum Ventures: "I believe this is a strong indication as to how we want to strategically grow this company. We are now planning near-term work at Niblack and the next phases of work at Harry and Cantoo. We look forward to the receipt of assay results from Cantoo and Harry."

Gold Up to US$1,932.50

Stockhead examined the Canadian metals market on October 10, 2023, and concluded that copper has now outpaced gold. The report observed that, rather than competing primarily for gold mineralization as normal, major gold corporations, such as Barrick Gold Corp. (ABX:TSX; GOLD:NYSE), are now looking to gobble up copper properties.

Gold, however, is still going strong due to global uncertainty fueled by the Israel-Hamas conflict.

In another report from Stockhead, the situation in the Middle East has caused both American traders and consumers to take a conservative position on spending: "These concerns have overshadowed the rally in U.S. banks like JP Morgan and Chase, which beat estimates in their quarterly profits." Stockhead believes that this economic anxiety has pushed up gold prices to US$1,932.50 per ounce.

139% Potential Return

On October 3, 2023, Red Cloud Securities published a report on Blackwolf that rated the company as a "Buy" for investors and named a target price of CA$0.55 for the company, representing a potential return of 139% for investors. Red Cloud cited a number of factors in its positive rating of the company, including the favorable location of the company's projects within Alaska's Golden Triangle and the fact that the company is positioned to profit from the receding glacial ice that is exposing more potential mineralization targets on the property.

Technical Analyst Clive Maund also looked at the company at the beginning of the year, on February 2, and rated the company as an "Immediate Strong Speculative Buy".

Couloir Capital also reviewed the company on June 2, 2023, where it named a target price of CA$1.28 for the company, meaning that the figure in the report from Red Cloud represents a significant increase. This report identifies the company's recently updated mineral resource update, as well as the involvement of Frank Giustra, as potential drivers for the company's value.

Technical Analyst Clive Maund also looked at the company at the beginning of the year, on February 2, and rated the company as an "Immediate Strong Speculative Buy" and commented that the company's stock trends show signs of "a major bull market ahead that will result in big percentage gains from the current low price which should prove to be a great entry point a from price and time perspective."
