Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp - The Train Is Leaving the Station But a Few Seats Remain

February 07, 2012 | About:

Many people who are aware of Yukon-Nevada Gold Corporation (YNGFF) know that I have written about this company extensively. You can read my report, The Drama is About to End, for background information. Yesterday, the company announced pivotal news that I have been looking forward to for more than half a year: The winterization of the mill has been completed and gold production has been restarted at Jerritt Canyon. The stock was up 20 percent on the news and nearly 4 million shares traded compared to the average daily trading volume of less than 1 million.

The forecast annual production rate is 108,000 ounces of gold for February 2012 and 150,000 ounces of gold for March 2012. With a gold production rate of 150,000 ounces of gold, the company should cash flow in the neighborhood of $150 million per year. Even after the run up in price, the market cap is still only slightly more than $300 million.

Considering that the company is planning on expanding production to 300,000 ounces of gold in a couple of years, I would not be surprised if Yukon-Nevada becomes a four-bagger before 2012 is over. Throughout the year, there are several catalysts likely to drive the stock price higher. For example, a new 43-101 is expected to be released showing additional resources. Also, the management is seeking a listing on AMEX.
