Richmont Mines Inc.

Richmont Mines has produced over 1.5 million ounces of gold in Canada, and currently operates the Island Gold and Beaufor mines. The Corporation is developing a high-grade million ounce Inferred resource below its producing mine in Ontario, thereby laying the foundation to become a lower-cost, long-life gold producer in a mining-friendly and safe jurisdiction. By unlocking the value of this asset, Richmont will be well-positioned to generate greater free cash flow and annual gold production, and to deliver years of high-quality growth. Richmont has over 20 years of gold production experience, a solid financial position, and less than 60 million shares outstanding.

Expert Comments:

Kevin Chiew, CIBC World Markets (7/14/15)
"Richmont Mines Inc. reported Q2/15 gold production results with 26,314 oz (sales of 27,566 oz), better than our estimate of 21,000 oz. Leading the strong quarter results was Island Gold, which generated 14,997 oz on the back of robust mining and milling productivity; mill throughput reached in excess of 800 tpd in both May and June."

Michael Gray, Macquarie Capital Markets (7/13/15)
"We would be buyers of Richmont Mines Inc.'s stock ahead of a potential upward revision to guidance on August 6 as well as the expected preliminary results of the mining and milling studies by the end of Q3/15. Today the company announced Q2/15 results of 26 Koz gold (vs. our 21 Koz forecast) with strong production from Island Gold at 15 Koz gold (vs. our 11 Koz forecast). . .we reiterate our Outperform recommendation and price target of CA$7.25. We like Richmont for its high-grade Lower Extension zone at the Island Gold mine located in Canada and its asymmetric leverage to the weakening Canadian dollar."

Brian Szeto, PI Financial (7/13/15)
"Richmont Mines Inc. announced its Q2/15 production. . .25,314 oz across its three operating mines (Island Gold, Beaufor and Monique), which came in better than our estimate of 21,500 oz. . .due to strong than expected production across all three assets. . .although production at Monique will be significantly less in H2/15 as it moves into care and maintenance, if the company continues to systematically increase its throughput rate at Island Gold, we may see an increase in Richmont's full-year guidance in the coming months."

"Richmont Mines Inc. is an old company that recently discovered considerably more value beneath its Island Gold deposit in Ontario. It's been a decent mine, not great, but recent drilling and underground work have discovered mineralization that's twice as thick and about twice the grade. The advantage is that the mine is already operating. It has the plant. It has the infrastructure. It just needs to dig down and get it. This is one of the companies that a major should be looking to take over. It's in a safe jurisdiction. It's built and running. We know what it looks like. This would be extremely profitable once it gets into the higher-grade zone at depth." read more >

"The Canadian dollar has recovered some of the losses it sustained earlier in the year, but it's still at a place where companies like Richmont Mines Inc. can continue to benefit from the weakness." read more >

Christopher De Sousa, Seeking Alpha (5/22/15)
"Richmont Mines Inc. produced 25,859 oz gold in Q1/15, up 23% compared to a year earlier. . .net earnings climbed to $4.6M. . .from a loss of $1.9M last year. The company has a strong balance sheet with minimal debt. . .Richmont was just shy of its cash flow breaking even. . .we expect cash flow to pick up once Island Gold transitions into a low-cost operation, and with an increased production profile. . .Richmont is taking the necessary steps to position its gold mines for meaningful organic long-term growth through the expansion of Island Gold and Beaufor."
