Expert Comments:

"Almaden Minerals Ltd. is one of the best managed mining companies in Mexico. . .it's plan to spin off part of its portfolio to focus on the Ixtaca project is a brilliant move. One of the problems with project generators, all the way back to NOVAGOLD, is that you get 95% of your value for your primary project, 5% of your value from your second highest project and you get zero value from all the other projects. Almaden has one of the best portfolios filled with wonderful projects and the best management team in Mexico. The company is giving these projects to its shareholders for free. In a second company these same projects will have value. Management has postponed the spinoff until June, but it's a great idea. . .Almaden is worth owning just for the spinoff. You essentially get a company with some of the best projects in Mexico for free." read more >

"Almaden Minerals Ltd. could be a prime takeover candidate because of its resource of about 4 Moz in Mexico, a good jurisdiction. The revised PEA cut down the capital costs; now it's a highly economic project in an area where most major mining companies are comfortable operating." read more >

"Almaden Minerals Ltd. has postponed its proposed split to separate its exploration assets from its advanced Ixtaca project. . .shareholder vote on the issue is now proposed to take place at the same time as the annual shareholder meeting in May, thus saving. . .expense. . .the company is advancing Ixtaca, acquiring land rights and obtaining permits."

"Almaden Minerals Ltd. has proposed spinning off a few of its early-stage exploration properties. It might be a smart move for Almaden to delay, actually. Spinning off properties in the current market might not be value accretive. Nonetheless, Almaden's Tuligtic project in Mexico has an updated PEA calling for a 300 tpd operation worth between $151–260M. Once inflation pounds the markets and gold will be attractive again, Tuligtic will be in the spotlight." read more >

"Almaden Minerals Ltd. announced earlier this month that it would spin off its sprawling property portfolio and accompanying royalty interests into a separate entity. . .given the multimillion ounce, open-pittable deposit that the company has already proved at Ixtaca (the deposit-hosting portion of Tuligtic), I think this move makes a great deal of sense. Not only does it free up the Almaden team to focus on moving Ixtaca along the development curve, but it also forces the market to assign a value to the impressive suite of projects and royalties that the company has accumulated over the years."
