Expert Comments:

Marco Rodriguez, Stonegate Capital Partners (2/17/15)
"Comstock Mining Inc. holds a strong resource base, which is further strengthened by recently received expansion permits. Furthermore, the company continues to enhance its efficiency by boosting production and also lowering operational costs. Thus, Comstock is positioning itself for future growth driven by its strong resource base, expansion permits and improving operational efficiencies."

Heiko Ihle, H.C. Wainwright & Co. (1/30/15)
"For the year, Comstock Mining Inc. produced 19,601 oz gold and 222,416 oz silver compared with 2013 gold and silver production of 17,739 and 186,482 oz, respectively. . .we continue to believe the strip ratio may be brought down further during 2015 to a normalized level below 3:1. . .we continue to note the company's sizeable land package, which could be utilized for further production expansion."

"One company I follow is Comstock Mining Inc., with a price target $2.50 based on a price deck of $1,200/oz gold and $17.50/oz silver. Our target is based on 2,200 tons grading 0.29 g/t gold from the Lucerne mine in Nevada at an average recovery of 65%. That should amount to 41 Koz gold. Add in some silver and the total is roughly 45 Koz gold equivalent from Lucerne in 2015. There may be some production from Dayton late in the year but we haven't factored any Dayton production into our model. Dayton production should grow over the course of 2016 until it reaches full production, probably in 2017. All together that leads us to a NVP calculation of about $223M for the firm as a whole." read more >

Resource Investing News (11/2/14)
