Gold breaks key psychological barrier to hit 2-month high Gold bounced 1.8% to hit $1,843/oz - its highest price since November powered by safe haven demand as volatility hits US equity markets. Geopolitical tensions between Ukraine and Russia are lifting prices despite rising US Treasury yields. Traders are also looking to gold as an inflation hedge, with the Fed looking to increase its efforts to tackle rising prices. Three US rate hikes are forecast for 2022, however traders expect the Fed to increase this if inflation levels continue to worsen. Today’s double rate cut in China is also supportive as is the prospect of China’s focus on stability and new stimulus. LME nickel stocks have fallen from 260kt in April to 95kt today. Shanghai warehouse inventories of 4.7kt are nearing record lows. LME premiums of $495/t are their highest since 2009. Nickel usage in batteries is expected to grow 50% yoy in 2022. (Reuters) This combined with strong demand for stainless-steel is drawing down stocks with the prospect of a near-term shortfall in metal inventories and a 30,000t supply/demand deficit for the year. Copper rallies to $9,900/t on optimism from Chinese stimulus efforts The metal has rallied on China’s efforts to initiate looser fiscal policy, boosting infrastructure spending, and providing a lifeline to the downtrodden property sector. LME inventories remain near their 2-month high at 95kt. Trafigura agree to fund $600m DRC cobalt projects Trafigura has agreed to provide $600m in funding for Shalina Resources’ Chemaf unit, which will produce cobalt in the DRC. Funds will be used to complete the mechanization of its Mutoshi mine as well as expanding a processing plant in Lubumbashi. The agreement also stipulates that Trafigura will provide marketing for all the cobalt hydroxide produced from these assets operated by Chemaf which is expected to continue until the end of 2027. Nikkei 225 +1.11% at 27,773 HK Hang Seng +3.28% at 24,918 Shanghai Composite -0.09% at 3,555     Chinese policymakers are focussing on stability and common prosperity through early action on policy support The PBoC has cut its 5-year loan prime rate to 4.6% from 4.65%. (WSJ) The cut was smaller than expected by analysts and the first of its kind since April 2020, with the 1-year loan prime rate also getting slashed 10bps from 3.80% to 3.70%. Analysts expect further rate cuts going forward to boost the economy currently faltering on China’s property market downturn. The Hang Seng property index jumped 5.2% on the news – Evergrande’s stock rose 3%. Beijing is also concerned about China’s domestic consumption, which has fallen on stringent lockdowns. The PBoC will also push financial institutions to increase credit issuance and boost market liquidity. (WSJ) China’s leaders pledged to boost demand this year through early stimulus and support at annual central economic work conference in December Leaders pledged last year to ease off on toughening regulation of major companies preferring to consider a traffic light system to curb excessive capitalistic growth. The group foresaw challenges from lower demand, supply disruption and lower expectations. New regulations are being drafted for property developers The principal rule being eased concerns the use of funds for pre-sold property which is held in escrow during the property completion China’s tightening of the use of escrow funds is said to have precipitated the Evergrande debt crisis along with several other highly indebted property development companies. China plans major high-speed railway expansion to boost economy China plans to expand its rail network by 12,000km to 50,000km of high-speed rail by 2025. The 2025 target length will be equal in network size to the following 5 countries combined. The plan will add an additional 12,000km in high-speed rail. (SCMP) The state planner hopes the infrastructure spending will stimulate the economy in the face of the property downturn. Beijing hopes to increase the network to 200,000km by 2035. High-speed rail lines require 8.07t/km of copper. Covid-contamination fears in China as Beijing links Omicron case to letter from Canada Online shoppers in China are increasingly reluctant to order imported goods due to fears of Covid contamination. Some 158m shoppers bought overseas goods online in 2020 suggesting that a fear of contamination could have a significant impact on demand. Hebei province, China’s largest steelmaker, produced 10% less steel in 2021 yoy. Hebei produces 2x more steel than India at 225mt. (NBS) Government policies to limit pollution and emissions in the run-up to the Winter Olympics hit the steelmaking industry in 2H21. Energy consumptions limitations were also introduced in 4Q21, as shortages in coal supply hit the nation. Regions excluded from pollution controls saw production increases, with Guangxi’s steel output rising 6%. Currencies US$1.1363/eur vs 1.1335/eur yesterday. Yen 114.34/$ vs 114.38/$.

Company News BUY – 111p The Company signed an updated JV agreement with Marvel Gold. The new agreement includes the Tabakorole gold project along with two contiguous licenses (Npanyala and Sirakoroble Sud) covering 292km2 property in total with Lakanfla now being 100% owned by Altus. Under updated JV terms , Marvel can increase its interest from current 70% to: 75% by sole funding US$5 million on exploration by 17 December 2023; 80% by sole funding a Definitive Feasibility Study. Altus retains a 2.5% NSR royalty with an option held by Marvel to buy back 1.5% of the NSR royalty for a payment of $10-15m (subject to the size of the resource). An updated MRE was released on the project in October demonstrating +1.0moz gold inventory (26.5mt at 1.20g/t for 1,025koz). Marvel launched a 35,000m drilling programme at the project in Nov/21 testing extensions of the deposit as well as satellite targets with a view to further grow the MRE. Altus interest in the Lakanfla gold project returned to 100% (previously under former earn in agreement with Marvel) with the team planning to start an exploration programme imminently. The project is located 5km east of the Diba oxide gold project that presents potential development synergies as well as 6.5km southeast of the karst-type FE3 and FE4 open pit of the multi ounce Sadiola gold mine and 30km southeast of the former multi-million ounce Yatela karst-type gold mine. Previous drilling completed by Marvel testing karst style system did not return significantly mineralised intercepts with the JV team having planned to update the model using latest results to guide follow up exploration. *SP Angel acts as nomad and broker to Altus Strategies   Arkle Resources* ( Arkle Resources PLC (AIM:ARK) ) 0.80p, Mkt Cap £2.5m – Drilling to resume at Stonepark Yesterday, Arkle Resources announced that drilling is to resume at its 23.44% owned Stonepark zinc project in Limerick “within weeks”. A programme of 6 holes is planned for a total of 2,300m with two holes of 250m and 400m respectively to test possible extensions of the Carrickittle prospect into the southwest of the Stonepark block with a 100m hole planned to step out from the Stonepark North area and the remaining three holes aimed at testing “earlier stage prospects … [associated with the Limerick Volcanic Complex] … in the South and East of the block”. Chairman, John Teeling, explained that the drilling, which is being managed by Arkle’s partner, Group Eleven Resources, aims to “find a mirror image of the large Glencore owned Pallas Green zinc deposit adjacent to Stonepark”. Mr. Teeling said that the “programme will take up to three months to complete”. *SP Angel are Nomad and broker to Arkle Resources   Aura Energy* ( Aura Energy Ltd (ASX:AEE, AIM:AURA) ) 17.25p, Mkt Cap £73m – Chairman’s letter to shareholders Aura Energy has released a letter in which non- executive Chairman, Phil Mitchell, describes the progress achieved on advancing the Tiris uranium project in Mauritania towards production during a period of rapidly rising demand for uranium in response to the needs of the nuclear power industry. Mr. Mitchell describes Tiris as “a magnificent project“ which already has much of the preparatory work for development completed and is “is perfectly positioned to advance … [as] …one of the most attractive near-term uranium development projects as the market continues to improve”. He explains that, supported by its newly appointed Board, Aura Energy has “identified significant opportunities to expand the Tiris resource and we will progress this work immediately” and that additional drilling and resource expansion is a key corporate objective for 2022 alongside the identification of additional cost reduction opportunities through the, previously announced, initiative to “include vanadium by-product recovery in the Tiris circuit”  as part of its drive to “create additional value for shareholders as we transition to uranium production at Tiris”. Aura Energy’s new board and its “collective industry experience and contacts … [will be deployed] to … identify further financing and offtake opportunities” and Mr. Mitchell explains that Aura Energy “will prepare to raise funds through a combination of debt, equity, and offtake agreements to move the project into construction, complementing the existing US$10m Offtake Financing Agreement with Curzon, which includes an additional up to US$10m facility, bringing the maximum available under the agreement to US$20m”. “Aura has built a close working relationship with the Mauritanian government, and we continue to work with the strong support of both government and local communities, with Tiris expected to deliver positive societal impacts within the community”. Referring to the company’s other projects, Mr. Mitchell’s letter highlights the 42mt, near-surface, 'Northwest High-Grade Zone' at the Häggån  vanadium project in Sweden which grades 0.35% vanadium pentoxide and is described as “a strategically important project in the European battery and energy market”. Further exploration of the subsidiary, Archaean Greenstone Gold’s licences located 36km south of the 20m oz Tasiast gold mine in Mauritania is described as an additional opportunity to create additional value for shareholders. Summarising the opportunity of a strong uranium market, Mr. Mitchell confirms Aura Energy’s strong belief that “the low capex and low operating cost Tiris Project … [positions it] … to be one the first new uranium producers globally, and we look forward to working closely with the Mauritanian government to rapidly develop the Project … [and says that …  Aura looks forward to being a key player in the sector for years to come, as the world continues to shift towards a decarbonised energy system.”. Conclusion: In its Chairman’s letter, Aura Energy stresses its commitment to work with the Mauritanian Government in developing the Tiris uranium project where its sees continuing resource expansion and cost reduction opportunities for developing the project in an expanding uranium market. *SP Angel acts as Nomad and Broker to Aura Energy   We congratulate the long-term Chief Operating Officer of Caledonia Mining, Dana Roets, on his appointment to the Board. He will also retain the COO role. Mr. Roets, who is an experienced mining engineer, led the “successful implementation of the Central Shaft project at Blanket Mine …  from its initial design stage in late 2014 to its commissioning in March 2021. Over this period, Blanket's production has increased by over 60 per cent from less than 42,000 ounces of gold in 2014 to over 67,000 ounces of gold in 2021”. The Central Shaft project secures the future of the Blanket mine into the 2030s and underpins annual gold production of 80,000oz pa and we welcome the recognition of Dana Roet’s role in the achievement and, by implication, the contribution of the entire technical and operating team he leads. *SP Angel mining analysts have visited Caledonia’s mining operations in Zimbabwe   Kore Potash* ( Kore Potash PLC (AIM:KP2, ASX:KP2, JSE:KP2) ) 0.93p, Mkt Cap £31m – Final optimisation study results due Q1/22 followed by a potential funding proposal in H1/22 The Company provided a quarterly operations review updating the market on development status of the Kola and DX potash projects in the Sintoukola Basin, Republic of Congo. The funding process for the construction of the Kola Project continued in line with the MoU signed with the Summit Consortium in Apr/21. The Company is expecting to receive the completed Optimisation Study Report on the Kola Project by the end of Q1/22. The study is focusing on reducing the capital cost and shortening the construction schedule to improve on Jan/19 DFS economics. A copy of the interim report included 53 capital cost reduction initiatives covering optimisation at the mine site, processing plant and infrastructure items. Additionally, the team is expecting to agree with the Summit Consortium an EPC proposal for the construction of Kola at the end of Q1/22 following completion of the study. The Summit Consortium reiterated its plans to present the Company with royalty and debt funding proposal within 60 days of the successful completion of the optimisation study (ie H1/22). Separately, the team continued negotiations with potential offtake partners for the Kola product. At the DX potash project, the team updated the geological model to account for latest drilling with the Company currently assessing next steps for developing the DX deposit. The Company spent ~US$1.1m on exploration (most of which as Kola, ~$1.0m) with the closing cash balance standing at $11.1m. Conclusion: H1/22 shapes to be a busy period with the optimisation study and the EPC proposal expected in Q1/22 followed by a potential funding proposal for the flagship Kola potash project. *SP Angel act as Nomad and broker to Kore Potash   Tirupati Graphite ( Tirupati Graphite PLC (LSE:TGR, OTCQX:TGRHF) ) 84.5p Mkt Cap £65m – Tirupati progress pilot processing plant to commercial scale Tirupati reports that the pilot scale version of its Column Flotation System processing technology has been successful, and the company intends to ship the first commercial scale CFS with a 1.5 MT per hour capacity, for installation and operation at its 9,000 tpa Vatomina graphite production plant in Madagascar. The company outlines a number of advantages in the technology over conventional flotation cell technologies including: Reduces power consumption during the flotation stage by C.40% Eliminates corrosion and wear in flotation Simplifies processing worksheet and therefore lowers costs of production The Company will be incorporating the new CFS in its upcoming capacity expansion projects replacing three out of four flotation stages. Significant benefits on cost and efficiency are expected in the upcoming 18,000 tpa Sahamamy expansion due to complete at the end of Q2 2022 and in the follow on 54,000 tpa of additional capacity planned to be built in Madagascar by 2024. Conclusion: The graphite market is currently undergoing huge transformation due to the versatile nature of the material along with its importance in new rapidly expanding sectors. The World Bank expect graphite demand will increase by 500% between 2018 and 2050, while the global graphite market is expected to reach US$21.7bn by 2027. It is encouraging to see Tirupati contributing to innovation and technological improvements within the sector, and we hope that the team can replicate the success achieved in the pilot study on a commercial scale.
