GFG's Rattlesnake Hills Project

In a Nov. 15 research note, Tyron Breytenbach, an analyst with Cormark Securities Inc., reported that GFG Resources Inc. (GFG:TSX.V; GFGSF:OTCQB) has identified, via drilling, new areas of mineralization at its Rattlesnake Hills project.

GFG expanded the North Stock target "by 100 meters (100m) to the west, drilling 0.95 grams per ton gold over 22.9m outside of the previous mineralization footprint," indicated Breytenbach.

Drilling of the Middle Ground target, the brownfields area between North Stock and Antelope Basin, "continues to return economic mineralization," he added. By connecting those two targets, if possible, GFG could extend the overall mineralized strike length to 1.1 kilometers.

As for the overall size of the resource at Rattlesnake Hills, Cormark estimated it to be an open-pittable 2 million ounces based on results from the 80,000m of historical drilling and from this year's 43-hole, 15,000m drill program.

As for near-term upcoming catalysts, GFG will announce the remaining outstanding drill results. "We expect a steady flow of news into the final months of 2017," Breytenbach wrote. Subsequently, the mining firm is expected to release a maiden resource estimate for Rattlesnake Hills in H1/18, "which will set a baseline valuation for this early-stage but prospective explorer," added the analyst.

Because "valuations across the sector are down," Breytenbach explained, Cormark lowered its enterprise value per ounce estimate on Rattlesnake Hills to $35/ounce from $40/ounce and, consequently, its target price on GFG to CA$1.70/share from CA$2.10/share.

GFG Resources' shares are currently trading at around $0.50. Cormark has a Buy recommendation on the corporation.
