Technical Analyst Clive Maund shares why he believes Sanu Gold Corp. is an Immediate Strong Buy.

Even without the benefit of a sector bull market, Sanu Gold Corp. (SANU:CSE;SNGCF:OTCQB) is looking like a most attractive gold stock investment here, but as it happens, a major gold and gold stock bull market is just getting started that promises to be of unprecedented magnitude and will be of enormous benefit to a well-positioned company like Sanu Gold.

A big reason that Sanu Gold is looking so attractive at this point is that it is not some junior that is looking for gold in a forlorn windswept northern moose pasture — it is looking for gold in the number one gold mining district in the world where it is surrounded by significant discoveries, in addition to which it has made some significant discoveries of its own.

We will now proceed to overview the company, looking at a selection of slides from its latest investor deck, which is new out this month, and then continue on to an analysis of its latest stock charts to see what they say about its prospects, and as we will discover, they are very bright indeed.

First of all, where does Sanu Gold operate, and at what stage of development are its properties?

The company has three significant properties in the prolific Siguiri basin in northeastern Guinea, which is in West Africa, and the exact position of Guinea in Africa and within Guinea, the position of the Siguiri basin is shown on the first slide.

The second slide shows the position of the company's three properties within the Seguiri basin, and also the numerous significant discoveries in the area, with some big mining companies such as AngloGold and Endeavour active in the district and also on this slide, there is information about high-grade discoveries at Sanu's Bantabaye and Daina properties from the first drill program illustrating that work at these properties is well beyond the initial exploration phase.

This slide shows the high-grade discovery potential of the flagship Bantabaye project.

The following slide shows details of the company's already achieved high-grade discoveries at the Bantabaye property.

The next interesting slide shows the location and size of other key landholdings in the Seguiri basin, who owns what, and how they relate to Sanu's properties — as we can see — AngloGold Ashanti Ltd. (AU:NYSE; ANG:JSE; AGG:ASX; AGD:LSE) has a spread of big holdings very near Sanu's properties.

Now, we come to a very important slide for investors, which demonstrates that there is a lot of belief in and confidence in this company.

Of the 138.5 million shares in issue, insiders, founders, and close associates own 30%, high net worth Individuals own another 30%, and institutions own 25%, which only leaves about 15% for retail investors, or about 19 million shares, so clearly any serious influx of demand for the stock can be expected to drive the price substantially higher.

Our last slide sums up some of the main attributes of the company that make its stock so attractive at the current price.

Now, we will turn our attention to an analysis of the stock charts for Sanu Gold.

The charts for Sanu Gold Corp look very positive indeed. On its 2-year arithmetic chart below, we can see that, following a severe bear market from the fall of 2022 when it peaked at CA$0.45, a giant slightly downsloping Cup (or Pan) and Handle base has formed. Despite the price bottoming as recently as late February of this year, the giant base pattern actually started to form as far back as June of last year, as this chart makes plain.

The duration of this base pattern has allowed time for the 200-day moving average to drop down close to the price and swing into much better alignment, for downside momentum (MACD) to drop out, and also time for a substantial quantity of stock to rotate from weaker to stronger hands, thus laying the foundation for a new bull market to develop.

One of the "hallmarks" of a genuine Cup and Handle base (or Pan and Handle if it is relatively flat) is the appearance of heavy volume on the rally to form the right side of the Cup, and that we have definitely seen in the case of Sanu Gold. The reason for this is that a group of Smart Money investors suddenly realize that the prospects for the company are getting a lot brighter, and they pile in.

The Handle of the pattern then forms due to the fact that it takes time for the fundamentals of the company to catch up with these heightened expectations. Observe also on the chart how the strong recent upside volume has caused the Accumulation line to surge, which is also a very bullish indication. An important point for buyers or would-be buyers of the stock here to note is that the boundaries of the Handle drawn on the chart are provisional and may require adjusting, depending on how long the Handle continues to build out. The central point to keep in mind though is that "the writing is on the wall" as far as this stock is concerned — it's going higher and is expected to do so against the background of a broad sector advance as gold and silver's still young major bull market continues to unfold.

The shorter-term 6-month chart enables us to review recent action in much more detail, and on it, we can see that price / volume action following the sharp high-volume rally in March to complete the right side of the Cup of the Cup and Handle base has been very bullish, with the dieback in volume suggesting that the pattern of recent weeks may be a bull Flag and if this is what it is the price may not bother to hang around in this price area making a longer Handle before it gets on with it and breaks higher again soon.

It is clear, though, that whether or not it tarries in this area to mark out a longer Handle, we are at a favorable point here, with it having reacted back to the support shown not far above its rising 200-day moving average.

The conclusion is that the outlook for Sanu Gold is very positive, and with it now at a good entry point, it is rated an Immediate Strong Buy for all timeframes. Given that it has already made significant discoveries and that the prospects are good that it will make further important discoveries, there is a strong possibility that it will be taken over.
