Extract Resources Limited: An exciting Prospect!

EXT Chart 21 apr 09.JPG


Chart courtesy of StockCharts.com


Extract Resources Limited (EXT) was brought to our attention by one of our readers through the comments section on a recent article, so we have placed it on the Watch List for now. The major shareholder is Kalahari Uranium Limited who can be found on the AIM section of the London Stock Exchange under the symbol of (KAH).

As we can see from the above chart EXT has made incredible progress this year with the stock doubling and doubling again. However it is now taking a well earned breather as some investors take profits off the table.

Extract Resources is an Australian company with offices in South Perth, Western Australia and Windhoek and Swakopmund in Namibia, through its subsidiary company, Swakop Uranium. Extract Resources is an Australian-based uranium exploration company whose primary focus is in the African nation of Namibia. The Company’s principal asset is its 100% owned Husab Uranium Project which contains two known uranium deposit areas: Rossing South; and Ida Dome. Extensive exploration potential also exists for new uranium discoveries, in addition to the already known occurrences, Ida Dome having a resource of 25mlbs of U3O8.

The management team looks solid and has many years of experience in the mining industry to its credit along with experience gained in Namibia which is an absolute must. The CV for the Managing Director, Peter McIntyre, reads as follows:

Mr McIntyre holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and is a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers, Australia. He has been involved in the mining industry for 30 years which included 15 years with WMC Ltd in various senior management positions and has been involved with the development of major projects. Mr McIntyre is a director of Atticus Resources (ASX:ACZ) and is also a director of Carbon Energy (ASX:CNX). He completed an MBA program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston.

The remainder of the board are similarly qualified.

We have made in vestments in the past in Namibia and on the 15th May 2007 we recommend buying UraMin Incorporated and at that time this what we wrote about Namibia in terms of the political risk there.

As far as geopolitics are concerned, we are comfortable with Namibia as a country on the whole. There is a lot of mining in Namibia and it is the fourth largest exporter of non-fuel minerals in Africa. Mining accounts for 20% of Namibia’s GDP and it is the worlds fifth largest producer of uranium so another uranium mine going into production should go smoothly but we will be keeping a close watch for any developments.




Taking another look at the situation in Namibia we are reasonably relaxed about it and have no real fears about investing there. However you can keep an eye on what goes on there via the New Era, a newspaper for Namibia by clicking this link.






Extract Resources Limited trades under the symbol of EXT on both the Australian Stock Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange. The headquarters are in Perth, Western Australia.








According to Google Finance the Market Capitalization is A$1.22 billion, with a 52 week high of $5.42, a 52 week low A$0.75 and closed yesterday at A$3.85. The major shareholder is Kalahari Uranium Ltd (AIM:KAH) - the top 20 shareholders hold 80% of the 223m shares on issue. Also note that Polo Resources Limited have recently increased their holding in the company to approximately 10.1% of Extract's fully paid ordinary shares.


For disclosure purposes we do not own this stock, however, we are watching it.

Just a thought:

EXT has a resource of 25 million pounds valued at A$2.5 billion assuming uranium sells at A$100/lb which is the long term price on Tradetech of US$70.00/lb. The market capitalization for Extract is AUD$1.18B at the moment which leaves about A$1.0 billion for mining costs, transportation, etc. At the time of writing we do not what these costs are but hopefully one of our knowledgeable readers will dig up something for us. Excuse the pun. Even without these costs we can see that if the stock price doubles so does the market capitalization which means that we would be buying the future potential of more discoveries as the current discovery would be built into the price. Just a thought.

Emerging Metals ups interest in Kalahari Minerals to 9.84%
company news image

Kalahari Minerals (AIM: KAH) continues to be a much sought after share.

Emerging Metals (AIM: EML) announced that it has acquired a further 1.78 million shares, increasing its stake to 17.6 million shares, or 9.84% of the Company. Stephen Dattles, Co-Chairman of Emerging Metals is also Chairman of Polo Resources, which holds a 5.7% stake in Extract Resources (ASX, TSX: EXT).

It is worth reminding readers that Kalahari Minerals key investment is a 38.68% stake in Extract Resources. Rio Tinto (LSE, ASX: RIO) is a significant shareholder in both companies, with a 15.8% interest in Kalahari Minerals and 15.6% interest in Extract Resources. Niger Uranium (AIM: URU) has a 15.5% stake in Kalahari Minerals.

Extract Resources main focus is the Husab uranium project in Namibia which contains the Rossing South, Ida Dome and Hildenhof prospects, and is located directly south of Rio Tinto's world class Rossing Mine.

At Rossing South, an initial resource estimate of 108 million pounds of U3O8 at a grade of 430 parts per million was announced in January 2009 for Zone 1, whilst at Ida Dome, a 25.1 million pounds of U3O8 has been defined, effectively giving Extract a total resource of 133.1 million pounds. An update on the resource at ‘Zone 2’ is expected in summer 2009.

Hi,

I don't know where you are getting your information but it is not up to date. Yes there is a 25 million lb resource in the IDA dome area but the latest JORC statement (read it at http://www.extractresources.com.au/DesktopModules/Bring2mind/DMX/Download.aspx? ) shows 108 million lbs in zone 1 of the Rossing South Area and that is at 430 ppm.

Zone 2 is being drilled at the moment and the expectation is that August 2009 will see a JORC statement for that area as well as an upgrade for zone 1.

Hope this has helped.

Lord Elpus,

The 108 million lbs that you refer to is only an estimate and has not been certified by a qualified person as yet.

We stand corrected and duly apologize, the ASX Release does say:

The definition of the Tossing South Zone 1 maiden resource was an important milestone for the Company which confirmed Rossing South as the highest grade primary granite hosted uranium deposit in Namibia.

Hi Uranium Stocks

Also Ida Dome, 25.1 million pounds of U3O8 has been defined, effectively giving Extract a total resource of 133.1 million pounds. An update on the resource at ‘Zone 2’ is expected in summer 2009.

"Kalahari faces the future from a strong and confident position and our strength is nowhere more clearly demonstrated than in our current 38.85% interest in ASX listed Extract. With circa 133.1 million pounds of U3O8 resource already reported at JORC status, which we anticipate to be upgraded to in excess of 250 million pounds of U3O8 in the coming months, we have significant exposure to one of the world's most exciting uranium discoveries."

EPL RENEWED

"Fantastic" Rossing South uranium grades continue to impress

Some more excellent grade figures for the Rossing South uranium project have been announced by operator Extract Resources.
Author: Lawrence Williams
Posted: Monday , 27 Apr 2009

LONDON -

A perhaps over-confident announcement from Kalahari Minerals chairman, Mark Hohnen, said "Rossing South continues to yield fantastic results and, these latest set of results reconfirm that Rossing South is the highest grade granite hosted uranium deposit in Namibia and that it continues to evolve into one of the largest uranium deposits in the world."

However, Hohnen can perhaps be forgiven his superlatives as the latest drilling results, announced by Extract Resources, in which Kalahari has a 38.6% stake, are adding some excellent data to what is already an extremely impressive potential resource, located just to the south of Rio Tinto's Rossing uranium mine.

Extract reports that it has seven drilling rigs working on defining the deposit and continues to encounter zones of massive high grade alaskite-hosted uranium mineralisation, and is now working on extending the resource to the west of Zone 1 and south of Zone 2.

The latest announced drilling results are indeed somewhat more than promising with good intersection thicknesses varying in grade between 485 ppm and 3,920 ppm. The defined NI 43-101 resource at Rossing South has already been estimated at 108 million lbs of U3O8 at a grade of 430 ppm using a cut-off of 100 ppm, which is in excess of the size and grade at Rio Tinto's Rossing operation which is one of the world's largest uranium mines.

Earlier this month Extract announced that it has appointed Australian engineering group, GRD Minproc, to conduct preliminary and definitive feasibility studies on the project.

Not surprisingly, Extract and Rossing South have been the subject of much interest with announced stakes in the company already having been taken up by Rio Tinto and Polo Resources. Rio also holds a significant stake in Kalahari as does a Polo associate by virtue of having the same chairman in Stephen Dattels, Emerging Metals. At some stage it looks as if a major take-over battle for Rossing South is likely to drive share prices higher - particularly as Namibian uranium finds have been carrying premium valuations.

The most likely winner would seem to be Rio Tinto with its neighbouring Rossing mine, although Rio has more pressing debt concerns to deal with at the moment. But under this scenario, if the price is bid up, Polo and Emerging Metals shareholders could make a killing too, as neither would seem to have the financial muscle to develop a mine there themselves!

Meanwhile Extract has also announced that the Namibian Government has extended the Exclusive prospecting Licence EPL3138, which covers the Rossing South ground, for two more years.
