Well-financed with five company-owned drills and an integrated in-house exploration team, the company has a proven discovery record and excellent risk management.

Expert Comments:

"Almaden Minerals Ltd. has proposed spinning off a few of its early-stage exploration properties. It might be a smart move for Almaden to delay, actually. Spinning off properties in the current market might not be value accretive. Nonetheless, Almaden's Tuligtic project in Mexico has an updated PEA calling for a 300 tpd operation worth between $151–260M. Once inflation pounds the markets and gold will be attractive again, Tuligtic will be in the spotlight." read more >

"Almaden Minerals Ltd. announced earlier this month that it would spin off its sprawling property portfolio and accompanying royalty interests into a separate entity. . .given the multimillion ounce, open-pittable deposit that the company has already proved at Ixtaca (the deposit-hosting portion of Tuligtic), I think this move makes a great deal of sense. Not only does it free up the Almaden team to focus on moving Ixtaca along the development curve, but it also forces the market to assign a value to the impressive suite of projects and royalties that the company has accumulated over the years."

Lawrence Roulston, Resource Opportunities (10/31/14)
"Almaden Minerals Ltd. is spinning out its exploration assets and royalties into a new company. . .we view this as a positive move that could unlock value for current shareholders. The spinout is expected to close before 2014E."

Bob Moriarty, 321 Gold (10/29/14)
"One of my favorite stories is that of Almaden Minerals Ltd. It has a giant gold project in southern Mexico with a 43-101 resource of 3.53 Moz Au eq Measured and Indicated and an additional 717 Koz Au eq Inferred. It’s a gold/silver project that anticipates a 12-year LOM to produce 1.6 Moz gold and ~94 Moz silver. . .one day soon, these shares will turn and most investors will miss the boat."

Ben Kramer-Miller, Seeking Alpha (10/21/14)
"Almaden Minerals Ltd. is spinning out a new company (Spinco) that will hold most of the company's assets excluding the company's flagship Ixtaca project. . .Spinco will essentially hold the company's secondary assets while the firm retains ownership of Ixtaca, its largest project. Spinco will receive a 2% royalty from Ixtaca, and each Almaden Minerals shareholder will receive 0.6 shares of Spinco. The appeal of such a plan is so that the company firm can focus on developing the Ixtaca project. . .the split is a compelling development which has the potential to draw in investors."
