Sûrement les résultats de l’étude de faisabilité bancaire. À ma connaissance, c’est une première mondiale une ÉFB sur une mine 100% électrique. Hâte de voir l’impact sur l’opex par rapport à la préfaisabilité.

Ils ont aussi dit qu’elle serait basée sur une production de 100,000 tonnes par année et non plus 52,000.

Est ce qu’on doit s’inquiéter de cette suspension ? Messemble que ca bouge pas depuis vraiment un bout malgré bonne nouvelle sur bonne nouvelle …

En attendant les résultats de la FS, Tesla vient de rendre public les résultats de son troisième trimestre. Ils sont extraordinaires!! Avec un profit de $312M, des marges brutes vraiment élevés et beaucoup d’autres bonnes nouvelles, il y a un gros potentiel de short squeeze demain en bourse.

Les shorts n’ont plus d’arguments. De tels résultats devraient aider beaucoup à changer le sentiment négatif avec les matériaux de batteries. Les investisseurs vont faire 1 +1 et revenir investir dans le graphite et le lithium. Ça en prend des quantités phénoménales pour les produire ces batteries!!

The following files can be downloaded in support to this press release:

MINERAL RESOURCES

In the following text, graphite is expressed in graphitic carbon percentage (% Cg).

The pit constrained resource located in the West Zone deposit includes 95.8 million tonnes grading 4.28 % Cg of Indicated Resources and 14.0 million tonnes, grading 4.19 % Cg of Inferred Resources, using a cut-off grade of 1.78 % Cg. Refer to the Company’s press release dated June 27, 2018 for further details.

MINING

Mining Highlights
Only the West Zone of the Tony Claim Block has been considered in the FS
Mining is performed by open pit using a fully electric truck and shovel operation
The mining production schedule is limited to a 16-hour work day, 5 days a week as to reduce the social impact of the project
Mining is to be executed under contract services under the supervision of Nouveau Monde
Mine life of 25.5 years, with a total diluted Probable Reserve of 59.8 Mt grading 4.35 % Cg

MINERAL RESERVES

The Mineral Reserve estimate was prepared by MC-DRA, using the Mineral Resource Estimate completed by SGS Canada Inc. – Geostat from Blainville, Québec, which was released by Nouveau Monde on June 27, 2018. The Mineral Reserves include the Indicated Mineral Resources that have been identified as being economically extractable and which incorporate mining losses and the addition of waste dilution. In addition, Mineral Reserve estimation considers the design of an operational pit that will form the basis of the production plan. This pit design uses the economic pit shell as a guideline and considers geotechnical constraints, smoothing of the pit walls, adding ramps to access the pit bottom and ensuring that the pit can be mined using the initially selected equipment. Table 1 summarizes the pit design parameters.

Table 1 : West Zone Open Pit Design Parameters

West Wall (Hanging wall) East Wall (Footwall)
Item Value Value Unit
Bench Height (double benching) 10 10 m
Berm Width 7 6.2 m
Blast Offset 3 1.2 m
Ramp Width 15 15 m
Bench Face Angle 75 75 degrees (°)
Overall Slope Angle 55 60 degrees (°)

The FS shows an average ROM feed rate of approximately 9,200 tonnes per day based on the current proposed mine work schedule of 5 days/week, two (2) 8-hr shifts per day (16 hr work day), a 25.5-year mine life and an average LOM waste to ore strip ratio of 1.06:1. The mineable portion of the reserves was developed based on an economic cut-off of 2.20 % Cg.

Once a dilution of 5 % and mining losses are considered, the Mineral Reserves extracted over the course of the mine life totals 59.8 Mt grading 4.35 % Cg in the Probable category as presented in Table 2 below:

Table 2 : Mine Reserves for the West Zone

Class Reserves (Mt) Grade (% Cg) Graphite Tonnage (Mt)
Probable 59.8 4.35 2.52*
*Graphite tonnage is based on an average graphite recovery of 94 % and concentrate product purity of 97 %.

Reserves categories are compliant with Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum Definitions Standards for mineral resources in concordance with National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. The cut-off grade for the open pit Mineral Reserves is 2.20 % Cg.

The mine infrastructure has been designed to facilitate an environmentally friendly project while lowering the visual impact on neighbouring communities. The processing plant and the co-disposal pile of tailings and waste rock will be located less than 500 metres from the mine so as to minimize truck cycle times and lower the project’s operating costs. In addition, the mine plan conceived for the FS considers the progressive backfilling of waste rock and tailings within the pit to further minimize the project’s environmental footprint and allows site rehabilitation during the operating life of the mine. The innovative mine waste rock and tailings management plan, as well as the water management infrastructure was designed by SNC-Lavalin Inc.

The mine will be using an all-electric zero-emission mine fleet, consisting of electric battery-driven 36.3-tonne mining trucks, battery-driven front-end loaders, cable reel excavators and bulldozers, and battery-driven service vehicles. The mine will also be using an electric in-pit mobile crusher and overland conveyor system to feed crushed material to the plant. The technology used in this fleet has been developed by Medatech Engineering Services Ltd. and ABB Inc. which assisted MC-DRA in preparing a fully-electric equipment fleet estimate. This information was then passed to a mining contractor to establish a technical and commercial proposal for the mine operation on a contractual basis as well as on the basis of a fully-electric equipment fleet.

Mr. Desaulniers continued, “We have designed a state-of-the-art mine that not only maximizes efficiency but also aims to be one of the most ecofriendly mines in the world, having a very low carbon footprint relative to our peers. This is a key product differentiator, especially for our electric vehicle manufacturing customers whose environmental and social acceptability values align perfectly with our own.”

PROCESSING AND RECOVERY

Processing and Recovery Highlights
Average annual processing rate: 2.35 million tonnes
Average annual graphite concentrate production: 100,000 tonnes
Average graphite recovery: over 94 %
Finished product purity: over 97 %

The Matawinie concentrator combines proven technology and innovative ideas to conceive a robust flow sheet with remarkably high graphite recoveries. Since the Prefeasibility Study, additional variability test work and Locked Cycle Testing has been performed at SGS Mineral Services to confirm that a recovery of over 94 % is attainable while maintaining over 97 % product purity.

The flow sheet consists of in-pit crushing, followed by multiple steps of grinding and flotation separation circuits. The graphite concentrate is then filtered, dried and classified to produce four (4) high purity products.

Table 3 : Graphite Concentrate Distribution

Flake Size Distribution (%) Assay (% Ct) Tonnes of Product
+48 mesh 15 % 97.3 % 14,800
+80 mesh 33 % 96.7 % 33,400
+150 mesh 28 % 97.6 % 27,700
-150 mesh 24 % 97.8 % 24,100
Total 100 % 100,000
The totals may not add up due to rounding.

The plant rejects are processed through flotation and magnetic separation to produce two (2) streams: sulphide and non-sulphide tailings. These streams are thickened and filtered before being sent for co-disposition.

GRAPHITE CONCENTRATE SALES PRICE ASSUMPTION

The graphite concentrate sales price used for the FS was established at $ 2,261 (1,730 USD) per tonne. The selling price was calculated using price forecasts provided by Benchmark Mineral Intelligence (Benchmark). Benchmark is an independent credible source who compiles international graphite prices for various commercial size fractions and concentrate purities. The Tony Block’s West Zone graphite concentrate value was calculated based on the weighted average of each size fraction and purity obtained during the metallurgical testing presented in Table 3. Table 4 presents graphite concentrate prices in USD for various size fractions calculated for years 2022 through 2047.

Table 4 : Price per Size Fraction

Size Fraction Weight Purity (Cg) LOM Average Price (US$/t) First 5 years Average Price (US$/t)
+50 mesh 15 % 94-97 % $ 2,711 $2,548
+80 mesh 33 % 94-97 % $ 1,907 $1,643
+150 mesh 28 % 94-97 % $ 1,547 $1,263
-150 mesh 24 % 94-97 % $ 1,091 $1,065
Weighted Average 100 % $ 1,730 $1,532

TECHNICAL REPORT

A technical report detailing the FS, completed in accordance with the National Instrument (NI) 43-101 guidelines, will be filed and available on SEDAR within 45 days of this press release.

NEXT STEPS

Nouveau Monde has already started discussions for the EPCM phase and a letter of intent has been signed with the Mining Contractor. Furthermore, the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment is scheduled to be completed during the first quarter of 2019.

TOWARDS VALUE-ADDED GRAPHITE PRODUCTS

In a vertical integration and sustainable development perspective, Nouveau Monde is planning the establishment of a large-scale graphite secondary transformation facility in addition to its mining project. The goal is to transform part of its graphite concentrate into spherical graphite used in the booming Lithium-Ion battery market as well as develop expandable graphite products used in various industrial applications.

COMMUNITY RELATIONS

Since 2013, Nouveau Monde has held more than 50 meetings with people or groups from the town of Saint-Michel-des-Saints and nearby communities. During these presentations and consultations, important ties of trust have been forged between the population and Nouveau Monde. An accompanying committee, composed of citizens and regional experts, is working with Nouveau Monde’s technical team to ensure that the project grows while respecting the host environment and, above all, contributes to the regional dynamism.

PROJECT SUMMARY

In 2015, Nouveau Monde Graphite discovered a major and high-quality graphite deposit on its Matawinie property, located in Saint-Michel-des-Saints, 150 km north of Montreal, Quebec. This discovery eventually led to the completion of this Feasibility Study which reveal strong economics with a projected graphite concentrate production level of 100,000 tonnes per year over a 25.5-year period.

With over 60 years of experience in the world of graphite, NMG’s team develops its projects with the utmost respect of neighboring communities, while favouring a minimal ecological footprint. NMG is privileged by direct access to the workforce and infrastructure needed to operate its mining project, and it can also rely on an abundant, affordable and renewable source of hydroelectricity.

impressionnant !


#93

Ce sont des valeurs économiques très solides. Je n’ai pas assez d’expérience pour juger quel pourcentage de la VNA le marché devrait assigner à la capitalisation boursière pour ce projet.

Le projet est très avancé et a été beaucoup dérisqué, est-ce qu’on peut s’attendre à voir le marché assigner 10%, 20%, 30% de la VNA? Si on prend 10% par exemple, la capitalisation boursière devrait être d’environ $120M et la cie vaut présentement $44M.

Fait à noter, quand ils vont sortir l’étude économique sur les produits à valeurs ajoutés, la VNA va s’approcher de $2B.


#94

Quand même surprenant d’avoir un volume aussi faible


#95

Je suis peu familier avec les stocks miniers mais je pense que ces quelques points pourraient expliquer la réaction du marché :

  • discout rate utilisé de 8% pourrait se trouver à être optimiste…12% réduirait beaucoup la valeur du NPV
    -la compagnie est loin d’être capitalisée pour se rendre à l’étape de production de 100 000 tonnes, combien de dilution sera nécessaire, équité vs dette? Avec les taux d’intérêts montants, est-ce que ça pourrait nuire à la capacité de la compagnie à se financer?
    -Les actions pleinement diluées sont plus autour de 260M d’actions et je crois qu’une 3e tranche n’est pas encore fermée…ce qui donne au gros minimum 74M$ de capitalisation boursière pleinement diluée vs le 50M$ non-dilué.

« iii) Net Present Value (NPV) : If a target company has completed a feasibility study and is nearing production, then, the fair NPV has normally been established. This figure is usually provided in the feasibility study or on the company’s website. The NPV is a value calculated by summing all of a project’s expected future cash inflows and outflows then discounting them back to present-day values using a discount rate that reflects the time value of money. It is best to use a 12% discount rate when performing this calculation. In many ways NPV is similar to DCF. Investors should look for targets with share prices less than 30% of NPV per share.»

On se trouve présentement à environ 3.8% du NPV et possiblement substantiellement moins si on se fit sur une augmentation de ce dernier avec les produits à valeurs ajoutés mentionnés par @Nic777.

Cela dit en étant beaucoup plus conservateur et tenant compte de la dilution et en prenant un discount rate de 12%, admettons qu’on tombe au long terme à 800M$ de NPV «réel» incluant les produits ajoutés…on serait tout de même à moins de 10% du NPV.

Si la compagnie arrive à trouver du financement à de bons termes ou encore le prix du graphite augmente de façon substantielle et que le management fait ses preuves, je pense que la compagnie offre un rendement potentiel très intéressant sur le moyen-long terme.

Divulgation : je suis actionnaire et très très peu d’expérience dans les stocks mininiers alors ceci n’est pas un conseil d’investissement de toute évidence


#96

La plupart des projets de graphite utilisent un discount rate de 8% ou dans certains cas 10%. Je n’en ai pas recensé un seul qui utilise un discount rate de 12%. Dans ce contexte, ça fait donc du sens pour NOU d’utiliser 8%. J’ai recensé une dizaine de projets à l’échelle mondiale qui ont atteint le statut d’étude de faisabilité. J’ai mis les principales valeurs économiques dans un chiffrier. C’est facile de comparer tous ces projets avec celui de NOU. Si vous voulez le chiffrier, envoyez-moi un message privé.

Toutes les tranches du financement annoncés durant l’été ont été fermés. On parle de 3 tranches.

Donc, pour bien évaluer un investissement dans NOU.V, c’est important de comparer avec les autres projets ayant une FS. NOU.V se compare très favorablement à ce chapitre.

Les autres avantages que NOU a sont le fait que le projet est au Québec, dans une juridiction sécure et dont les lois sur les royautés ont peu de chance de changer, ce qui n’est pas le cas avec les projets africains.

Certains projets africains sont dans des pays dont les infrastructures sont très mauvaises ou même dans le cas de Syrah au Mozambique, dans un pays qui était en guerre civile il n’y a pas longtemps encore.

Les projets africains ont également de très mauvaises empreintes environnementales et sont très loin des marchés ou le graphite est consommé. Celui-ci devant être envoyé par bateau vers l’Asie, les États-Unis ou l’Europe. Shipper une tonne de graphite par bateau peut facilement coûter $100 à $150.

Les deux produits de graphite qui sont en forte croissance sont le graphite sphéronisé et purifié et le graphite expansible. Les projets Africains n’ont pas l’énergie abordable et verte pour faire ces produits à valeur ajoutée. Syrah par exemple est en train de s’organiser pour faire ce traitement en Louisiane en utilisant des acides dommageable pour l’environnement et ils doivent bien sûr payer le transport des flocons entre le Mozambique et la Louisiane. On est loin du plan de NOU de le faire avec l’hydro-électricité verte et peu chère avec des flocons qui sont déjà ici.


#97

Le secteur des ressources a une année 2018 très difficile. Regarde autour et la plupart des compagnies ont vu leurs actions prendre une débarque de 40-50%. Cette tendance n’a pas épargné les matériaux de batteries. Il y a de l’espoir que le sentiment négatif tire à sa fin par contre, du moins pour ce qui est des matériaux de batteries. Les résultats financier Q3 de Tesla ont surpris tout le monde. Les analystes et surtout les shorts n’avaient prévu des résultats aussi forts. Bloomberg continue à surveiller la production hebdomadaire de la Model 3 et ça approche les 5,000 voitures. C’est des nouvelles extraordinaires qui font en sorte que les shorts, les manufacturiers traditionnels et les pétrolières sont presque à court d’arguments pour nuire à Tesla. On est rendu au point ou plus personne ne peut nier que la révolution des VÉs est en train de se faire.

Ça prend des quantités phénoménales de graphite pour les faire ces batteries. Les investisseurs vont revenir investir dans les matériaux de batteries et NOU a la plus forte FS en Occident. Sur papier, la cie a la plus forte marge bénéficiaire lors de la vente de flocons et la cie avance rapidement dans le domaine des produits à valeur ajoutée. Avec l’aide d’Hydro-Québec, la cie devrait produire du graphite sphéronisé et purifié à son usine démo dès 2019.


#98

Il y a un bon volume aujourd’hui. Il reste 1 heure de transactions et on est déjà à 350,000 actions, ce qui est 2 fois la normale. Quelques grosses trades de 20,000 et 30,000 actions en plus. Ça m’apparait que y’a de l’accumulation qui se fait.

Encore un peu de patience et on devrait passer bientôt au travers de cette résistance à 30 sous. Après, ça devrait monter rapidement vers les 40 sous.


#99

4x le volume moyen (526k) aujourd’hui et fini à 0.305$…de bonne augure pour l’instant.


#100

Lorsque les institutions se mettront à acheter, le volume va monter dans les millions de transactions. Je crois que le jour n’est pas si loin si on se fit à ce qui est arrivé à Nemaska Lithium ou à Mason Graphite quand ceux-ci ont déposé leurs études de faisabilité en 2015.
