Blackwolf Copper & Gold Ltd. (TSXV.BWCG;OTC:BWCGF) announced that it has filed and mailed materials for a special shareholders’ meeting to approve its proposed merger with Treasury Metals Inc. Read why analysts see this as a “strong transaction.”

Blackwolf Copper & Gold Ltd. (TSXV.BWCG;OTC:BWCGF) announced that it has filed and mailed materials for a special shareholders’ meeting on June 26 to approve its proposed merger with Treasury Metals Inc.

The two companies announced the transaction last month, saying they plan to form a strategic partnership to focus on Treasury’s Goliath Gold Complex (GGC) in Ontario, which is nearing production readiness.

In a release, the company noted that GGC is expected to produce approximately 109,000 ounces of gold annually at competitive costs, and the merger will also lead to a “renewed exploration commitment.”

“The Blackwolf Board of Directors and Special Committee UNANIMOUSLY recommend that Voting Securityholders vote IN FAVOUR of the proposed Arrangement,” the company said.

The move was strategically timed to capitalize on the potential rise in gold prices, with some market analysts predicting prices could reach as high as US$3,000 per ounce in the medium term.

Technical Analyst Clive Maund highlighted the positive aspects of the merger between Treasury Metals and Blackwolf on May 2. He said the move is poised to advance the GGC Project significantly.*

“This is a strong transaction for Blackwolf and Treasury shareholders that puts the company on the path of a buy and build strategy that I have implemented many times,” Maund wrote. “We see the GGC Project as buildable and expandable on a district scale.”

The Catalyst: Analysts Say Deal Benefits Both Cos.

GGC’s prefeasibility study (PFS), conducted in February 2023, forecasted 13-year mine life. It anticipates producing 109,000 ounces of gold per year at a cash cost of US$892 per ounce and an all-in sustaining cost (AISC) of US$1,037 per ounce during the first nine years, the company said.

The prefeasibility study projected a net present value (NPV) of US$493 million at a 5% discount rate and an internal rate of return (IRR) of 33.5% based on a gold price of US$1,950 per ounce (gold was US$2,354.82 on Thursday).

There is readily available world-class infrastructure, and a Federal Environmental Assessment approval has been secured. The final feasibility study and permitting processes are currently underway.

As part of the agreement, the two companies, shortly after the announcement, upsized the merger-related financing from CA$4 million to CA$6.4 million.

“This combination (of companies) renders Blackwolf a near-term producer while providing the combined entity some exceptional exploration projects in British Columbia and Alaska,” wrote Jay Taylor of Hotline.

Some other analysts agreed. “The combined company would be well capitalized to execute on its strategy and pursue further growth in a strong gold price environment,” wrote Red Cloud analyst Taylor Combaluzier, who rated the stock Tender, advising clients to tender their shares with a target price of CA$0.35 per share.

“Progress on ongoing feasibility and permitting work for the GGC project by Treasury could potentially help drive the price of the BWCG shares towards our target until the transaction closes,” Combaluzier wrote.

According to a May 2 commentary, “There is a very limited time for investors and gold majors to snap up big assets — on the cheap. As the Western world gets used to a MUCH higher gold price now — asset SELLERS will want a much higher price for their ounces in the ground.”

Eligible to vote on the issue either in person in Vancouver or by proxy will be holders of Blackwolf common shares and Blackwolf options at the close of business on May 21. Meeting materials are available on SEDAR+ or the company’s website.

Under the merger, each shareholder will be entitled to 0.607 of a Treasury Metals common share for each common share held of Blackwolf.

Outperforming Gold Prices

The price of gold hit a new all-time high of US$2,449.89 per ounce on May 20. Some are predicting a prolonged and substantial gold bull market.

Adam Rozencwajg, managing partner at Goehring & Rozencwajg, predicted that prices could go as high as US$5,000 to US$7,000 an ounce before it’s all over. [OWNERSHIP_CHART-1961]

According to, “Gold prices have been outperforming across various asset classes and on a macroeconomic level. It is implicitly trading on its reputation as a safe asset with no counterparty risk, rather than the opportunity cost associated with holding a zero-yield asset.”

The site said Central Bank buying of the yellow metal is also still tracking above reported levels, suggesting “sustained institutional interest in the precious metal.”

Ownership and Share Structure

According to the company, management and insiders hold 9.2% of the Blackwolf Copper & Gold.

With this transaction, Treasury Metals, along with other strategic investors, holds 37.03% of the company. The rest is with retail.

Blackwolf currently has a market cap of approximately CA$15.93 million, trading within a 52-week price range of CA$0.09 to CA$0.37.
