Pretium Resources Inc.

Pretivm is creating value through gold at its 100%-owned, advanced-stage Brucejack Project located in northern British Columbia. The high-grade gold opportunity at Brucejack, one of the largest and highest-grading undeveloped gold projects in the world, is the catalyst for near-term production, and our focus.

A feasibility study completed in June 2014 has outlined Proven and Probable mineral reserves in Brucejack’s Valley of the Kings comprising 6.9 million ounces of gold (13.6 million tonnes grading 15.7 grams per tonne gold). Pretivm is advancing Brucejack to production as a 2,700 tonnes per day underground mine.

All of the major regulatory permits required to begin development work on the high-grade underground gold mine at Brucejack have been issued, and commercial production is targeted to commence in 2017.

Expert Comments:

"Pretium Resources Inc. is a very interesting developer. Over the last few years as the gold market turned down, it was up against the wind developing its deposit in the Valley of the Kings in northern British Columbia. There's been a lot of criticism of the project, but I'm very hopeful and excited to watch as it goes into commercial production in the next year. It has identified amazing grades. I feel very comfortable that it is going to achieve its objectives. We might see sporadic production over the years because of the nature of that deposit and the nature of the high grade there, but I'm quite optimistic that it'll work out well. I think the naysayers will be humbled in due course but there probably will be ups and downs along the way, which will make it exciting for investors if they like to trade. . .as much as the mine management team is well prepared for operating in difficult weather conditions and mining a high-grade deposit with relatively narrow veins, there will likely be periods when operations don't go as planned. And yet, it is an amazing ore deposit, which in time should yield tremendous value." read more >

"We recently completed a site visit to Pretium Resources Inc.'s Valley of the Kings high grade underground gold deposit. . .mineralization is hosted in a relatively complex epithermal system ~188-183Ma overprinted or remobilized on a 110Ma deformation event. Key individual veins are fairly continuous and traceable between levels. . .geologists have been experimenting with various proxy indicators but a powerful indicator has emerged recently. A package defined by anomalous Fe/S/As demonstrates excellent predictability for higher grade, leading to the potential for geologists to map and guide mine development with handheld spectrometers to minimize dilution and maximize head grade."

"I visited Brucejack of Pretium Resources Inc. last week. . .in general the construction is going very well. Though the management maintains the message of commercial production around mid of 2017, they are set to have everything ready by the end of the year; I won't be surprised if they start turning the mill and producing some gold either the end of this year or early next year, ahead of schedule. . .when I asked management for comments on my observation, the official answer I got was 'due to favorable weather condition and dedicated workforce, we are slightly ahead of schedule.'"

"ROTH attended a site visit to Pretium Resources Inc.'s Brucejack project in northern British Columbia, CA. We came away impressed with the progress since our last site visit in August 2014 and believe the company is comfortably on schedule for commissioning in mid-2017. . .management was clearly confident in being able to meet its public time frame. . .but they did not suggest they were ahead of schedule. . .we continue to believe that PVG is on schedule and on budget to enter production in 2017, with mine commissioning in mid-2017."

Jeff Killeen, CIBC World Markets (8/24/16)
"Pretium Resources Inc.'S team on site noted that the point where ore domains are being intersected in underground development are matching well with the current resource model and detailed drilling. On the back of this confirmation work an updated reserve estimate and mine plan are expected for release in late Q4/16. . .PVG notes that it remains on time and on budget for a production start-up in late H1/17. . .We have increased our price target to $15 (from $14) as PVG continues to track well towards production and reach key development milestones."

Heiko Ihle, Rodman & Renshaw (8/24/16)
"We think Pretium Resources Inc.'s Brucejack should be constructed on schedule and continue to view the asset as one of the world's premier development-stage gold assets. . . At the 1350 Level, we saw a number of samples that contained visible electrum. . .We highlight that electrum generally contains 20-80% silver and 20-80% gold, with trace amounts of other metals such as platinum and copper. . .In our view, Brucejack has been derisked from a financial standpoint, since the project should not require additional capital to reach the production stage. . .We are reiterating our Buy rating and $16.50 per share price target on Pretium Resources."
