The Company focuses on the exploration of Relief Canyon properties located in Pershing County in northwestern Nevada. Pershing Gold Corporation is based in Lakewood, Colorado. " (2/15/2019)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We believe that Pershing’s position as a single asset developer and current precious metals market conditions made it more difficult than expected for the firm to secure project financing at favorable terms. In our opinion, the combined firm should be able to secure financing for a lower cost of capital aided by Americas Silver’s strong financial position and cash flow generating assets. In short, we think that a financing package for the project could be finalized in 1Q19, which would allow construction at Relief Canyon to begin shortly after and initial production as early as 1H20. Transaction priced below our NAV for the firm. We note that the announced transaction price from Pershing’s point of view was substantially below our estimated NAV and price target for the firm."
