Pretium Resources Inc.

Pretium Resources Inc. is creating value through gold at its high-grade, advanced-exploration-stage Brucejack project. Located in northern British Columbia, Brucejack offers the potential for near-term gold production in an area of permitted gold mining. Brucejack hosts a significant, undeveloped, high-grade gold resource. Gold resources in the Valley of the Kings total 4.9 Moz Indicated (8.9 Mmt grading 17.3 g/t gold) and 10.4 Moz Inferred (12.7 Mmt grading 25.5 g/t gold). A feasibility study on the Brucejack high-grade gold opportunity is underway.

Expert Comments:

Canaccord Genuity's Morning Coffee (8/20/15)
"Pretium Resources Inc. announced on Wednesday a third set of results from an underground infill drill program in the Brucejack project's Valley of the Kings. Stope definition drilling is now underway from two underground drill bays, the 1320 drill bay and the 1310 drill bay. . .hole VU-459 intersected 154.13 g/t gold uncut over 14.6m, including 4,470 g/t uncut over 0.5m."

Heiko Ihle, Rodman & Renshaw (8/20/15)
"On Aug. 19, 2015, Pretium Resources Inc. announced drilling results from its Brucejack gold project. . .we highlight hole VU-463 (1320 bay), which intersected 29.94 g/t gold over 29.5m including 1,690 g/t over 0.5m. . .we view Brucejack as a robust gold project notwithstanding lower gold prices and believe our target for first production in 2017 remains adequate."

"One company that I really like is Pretium Resources Inc., which is developing the high-grade Brucejack project in British Columbia. It has a Proven and Probable resource of 7.5 Moz gold. If Pretium gets all the necessary mining permits and licenses for Brucejack, the funding will come in short order. Zijin Mining Group has invested CA$81M for a 9.9% stake. This is one of the few projects that would still be profitable at $800–900/oz gold. This is a really sexy and attractive project in my eyes." read more >

Ovais Habib, Scotia Capital (8/19/15)
"Pretium Resources Inc. released results from the ongoing underground infill drill program at the 100%-owned Brucejack project's Valley of the Kings. . .the third set of fan drill definition results to support mining in years 1–3 returned multiple high-grade narrow width gold intersections. . .notable highlights include: hole VU-459 with 154 g/t Au over 14.6m, including 4,470 g/t Au over 0.5m and hole VU-463 with 29.9 g/t Au over 29.5m, incl. 1,690 g/t Au over 0.5m. (Note: all gold grades are uncut). . .the company has all necessary permits to advance to the construction phase at the Brucejack project."

Joe Reagor, ROTH Capital Partners (8/17/15)
"Pretium Resources Inc.'s Q2/15 financials were uneventful as expected; however, we believe that the company is on the cusp of announcing a financing plan for its Brucejack project, which would allow it to begin construction during September. As a result, we are reiterating our Buy rating and $13 price target."

"Pretium Resources Inc. is a name that circles around as acquisition target. . .the great thing about Pretium is the sheer size of the deposit, and the grade. It's one of those mines that brings a long mine life and high grade in a safe jurisdiction. Pretium is probably clicking the box there as well, but it's also hard to say if an M&A premium is factored in. It recently received an Environmental Assessment Decision Statement from the Federal Minister of the Environment that also includes agreement with the Nisga'a Nation treaty. CA$80M in new Chinese money has been invested in the company. Pretium is a third name that I hear regularly in M&A discussions." read more >
