  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "U.S. GOLD CORP. is primarily engaged in the precious metal mining business in the continental United States, however, it may also evaluate properties outside the United States. " (1/2/2019)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We highlight another strong quarter of production, which follows solid YoY growth in 1Q18. We also note that annualized 1H18 gold equivalent production is trending above our 2018 estimate of 171,000 ounces (adjusted to reflect the 75:1 silver to gold ratio used by the firm vs. 65:1 in our model). That said, we expect lower 2H18 production at El Gallo relative to the 1H18 given that mining activities ended in 2Q18, and the remaining production is now expected to come from residual heap leach activities."
