Target Price Raised on Mining Co. With PFS-Stage Asset

Source: Lucas N. Pipes   12/19/2022

The company’s Q3/22 performance along with mine plan and gold resource revisions drove the target price increase, noted a B Riley Securities report.

On the heels of Seabridge Gold Inc. (SEA:TSX; SA:NYSE.MKT) providing a Q3/22 financial and operational update, B Riley Securities increased its target price on the Canadian explorer to US$60 per share from US$57, reported analyst Lucas Pipes in a Nov. 21 research note.

Seabridge’s current share price is much lower, at about US$15.20. The difference between it and B Riley’s target price implies a significant potential return for investors. B Riley rates Seabridge Buy.

B Riley updated its model on Seabridge to reflect the company’s Q3/22 numbers, improved economics at KSM outlined in the recent prefeasibility study (PFS), increased Proven and Probable (2P) reserves and US$2,000 per ounce gold prices, Pipes wrote.

“We believe the project’s reduced need for diesel fuel and lower sustaining capital were key optimization efforts amid this persistent inflationary environment,” Pipes added.

The result was a greater KSM valuation of US$4,724 million (US$4,724M), up from US$3,919M.

Currently, Pipes pointed out, the Toronto, Ontario-based company is “demonstrating a substantial start of its flagship KSM operations, which, besides developing critical path infrastructure, extends the environmental assessment certificate until the end of the project.”

Profitable Q3/22

Pipes provided a summary of Seabridge’s Q3/22 financial results.

The company generated US$5M in net income and a gain of US$24.9M from the remeasurement of its secured notes. Offsetting this, however, was a US$11M forex loss. Recurring expenses were as expected.

Seabridge ended Q3/22 with US$66.2M in cash and about US$137M in short-term deposits.

Key Mine Plan Changes

Pipes noted that important revisions in the PFS mine plan led to B Riley updating its Seabridge model. These included a shift to a wholly open-pit operation, electrification of the mine haul fleet, and a 50% increase in mill throughput (to 195,000 tons per day from 130,000).

“We believe the project’s reduced need for diesel fuel and lower sustaining capital were key optimization efforts amid this persistent inflationary environment,” Pipes added.

Boosted Gold Reserves

The analyst also noted that B Riley’s revised valuation of Seabridge also accounted for recent changes to KSM’s reserve quantities. In an update, 2P gold reserves went up to 47,300,000 ounces from 38,800,000, whereas 2P copper reserves decreased, as did life-of-mine copper production.

This is because “Seabridge chose to focus on the gold-rich deposits in the updated PFS, due to a significantly quicker payback period of 3.7 years (post-tax) versus a post-tax payback of 6.8 years under the 2016 PFS,” Pipes explained.
