  • 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. " (10/12/2017)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We note that 2Q17 gold equivalent production fell by approximately 18% from 2Q16. Further, production increased approximately 10% from 1Q17. We expect 2H17 production to improve from 1H17 levels, and highlight that our model, adjusted for a 75:1 gold to silver ratio, estimates 2017 production to reach a total of 134,100 GEO. Production at San Jose improved sequentially while slightly decreasing YoY. San Jose 2Q17 production totaled 22,804 GEO. Total 1H17 production from the asset totaled 42,729 GEO, a slight improvement over 1H16, primarily due to higher gold grades. Annualized 1H17 production would result in total 2017 production of 85,400 GEO, somewhat below management’s guidance of 94,000 attributable GEO for San Jose. We note that our model reflects attributable 2017 production from San Jose to reach 88,000 GEO." (7/18/2017)
