PHOENIX, AZ / ACCESSWIRE / April 8, 2019 / Uptick Newswire Stock Day Podcast welcomed Auryn Resources Inc. (NYSE American: AUG) ("the Company"), a technically driven junior exploration company focused on finding the next globally significant copper and gold discoveries. Executive Chairman and Director, Ivan Bebek, spoke to Stock Day host, Everett Jolly, about the Company's Sombrero project being the most exciting of his career.
"This project continues to tell us we're underestimating what could be there.", stated Bebek. The potential scale and grade at Sombrero have Bebek excited. The Company recently released surface results that included 232 meters of 0.55% copper equivalent, with a high-grade internal interval of 40 meters of 1.26% copper equivalent. Bebek says this is a considerable width of surface mineralization with grade that is on par with nearby producing mines. Bebek compared it to a nearby deposit called Las Bambas, which was sold for $8 billion in 2014.
"Each time we go to Sombrero and we get more data off the surface, we find more and have increasing confidence that we could be onto a copper-gold discovery in Peru.", stated Bebek. When Jolly asked about the Company's next steps for the project Bebek shared that Auryn is amidst permitting the site to begin drilling in August.
The Company also recently closed a private placement, and Jolly asked what the funds will be used for. Bebek explained that the Company has purposely kept its financing relatively small as to not dilute shareholder value, and there was no discount or warrants issued. However, the financing was oversubscribed internally, as Bebek says there was $1 million CAD of insider purchasing, which is the single largest purchase by insiders to date. The private placement closed at about $5.25 million CAD –which Bebek says will support the Company's continuous surface work at Sombrero and the upcoming drill program at the project.
Jolly then asked Bebek about Auryn's flagship in northern Canada, Committee Bay. Bebek stated that the Company has had a thorough exploration program at the site for the past four years, which only equates to approximately nine months of on-the-ground work because of the seasonality up north. However, Auryn recently introduced artificial learning technology, which Bebek believes could be a game-changer. He says the technology is making use of the high-quality data from the site to generate new drill targets that are under glacial cover (which covers 95% of the belt), shallow lakes, as well as targets that line up with those generated by Auryn's technical team.
To close the interview, Bebek shared that he believes the Company's stock price is undervalued, but he doesn't expect this to last for long. Within the next few months, the Company expects to begin drilling at what could be one of the biggest discoveries in the past two decades. Right now, is the most opportunistic time for those interested in becoming shareholders to get involved.
