Thibaut Lepouttre, Caesars Report (9/16/15)
"Lincoln Hill's access to existing infrastructure makes Rye Patch Gold Corp. interesting. . .we are convinced the key to unlocking additional value is in the metallurgical test work, which is currently being conducted. If the company would be able to increase the gold recovery to 85% using a crusher, the effect on the NPV will be huge considering an additional 35 Koz gold could be produced at just a marginal extra cost."

Brien Lundin, Gold Newsletter (Jefferson Financial) (9/11/15)
"Rye Patch Gold Corp. has filed a demand for arbitration with Coeur Mining, claiming Coeur shorted it on its Q1/14 payment of royalties from the Rochester mine. . .if successful and the attendant legal fees don't drain any ruling of its value, the extra cash will help the company continue to pursue exploration and development on its nearby Lincoln Hill property. Regardless of the ruling, Rye Patch will continue to receive more royalty payments from its net smelter royalty on Rochester. That non-dilutive source of cash, combined with a portfolio of intriguing Nevada projects, makes Rye Patch a solid speculation at current levels."

"Rye Patch Gold Corp.'s Carlin Trend Patty project is a high-potential exploration project. But more importantly to me, a lot of people are not giving Rye Patch credit for its progress toward production. It also benefits from royalty income from its agreement with Coeur Mining, which essentially means it can keep progressing toward production without any share dilution. Rye Patch is a great company for investors who want to buy and hold. It affords exposure to an economically sound project with proven resources. Investors just have to wait for the market to come back to reward them." read more >

"We were amazed by the quality of Rye Patch Gold Corp.'s exploration projects as the company now has four irons in the fire. . .but what probably was even more interesting to see was CEO Bill Howald's unlimited enthusiasm when talking about the projects. He is a guy who definitely knows what he's doing and Howald is determined to make this work, even in the low gold-price environment we're experiencing right now. Sometimes it's not just about the horses in the stable, but about the jockey who's riding them."

"I recently spent two days with Rye Patch Gold Corp. CEO Bill Howald in Nevada. I was most surprised by the Lincoln Hill project, which is located just 3km from Coeur Mining's Rochester gold-silver mine. The Lincoln Hill economics look good on paper but there is potential to improve those numbers. Metal recoveries are much higher at the nearby Rochester mine, which is processing essentially the same ore. Rye Patch believes that by adding crushers to the processing circuit it could boost gold recovery rates to 90% and to 60–65% for silver. That would immediately add $25–30M to the Lincoln Hill NPV. That's something that the market hasn't realized yet. The company also has a heap-leach project in Nevada called Wilco that's next to Interstate 80. It has an NI-43-101-compliant resource of 1.3 Moz gold in the Measured and Indicated category, and an additional 0.5 Moz in the Inferred category. Newmont Mining has a back-in right on Wilco once Rye Patch completes a feasibility study. But instead of spending $10–15M to finish the study, Rye Patch will probably go back to Newmont and try to negotiate a better deal to make sure that it's a win-win for everyone. If Rye Patch is successful, it could change the company overnight." read more >

"We like Bill Howald's Rye Patch Gold Corp. as a consolidation play. The PEA at Lincoln Hill reported a fantastic internal rate of return, but, of course, it's a bit small in size. It needs to grow. That's what the company is doing right now. One missing part is the results from the new metallurgy tests. The company intends to set up an extra crushing unit, similar to Coeur Mining's; that is expected to bring up the silver recoveries to 90% or more. With such numbers, it would be a great project to build for a relative small capex or even get bought out. Rye Patch has about a $20M market cap and gets about $4M every year at the current silver price from a royalty on Coeur's Rochester mine in Nevada. With this royalty the management can do all the drilling on its other projects and advance Lincoln Hill without touching the cash in the bank. Furthermore, the funds are enough for a bankable feasibility study. If the silver price goes to $25/oz, that $4M becomes $8M. Rye Patch currently has $7M in the bank and is trading at $0.14/share. There's a real opportunity to grow Lincoln Hill into something significant and if it does, Rye Patch will likely get bought." read more >
