Investment summary

Alphamin offers rare exposure to immediate positive cash flow from a metal that both Rio Tinto and MIT regard as being the most likely to benefit from the widespread electrification of the world economy. Fortuitously, its Bisie tin mine in the north-eastern DRC is hitting its stride at just the moment that the tin price is experiencing its biggest squeeze in decades, providing it with a golden opportunity to repay debt and even consider making distributions to shareholders as early as next year.

Industry outlook

At the current tin price of US$29,815/t, we estimate a value for Alphamin of 61.5 US (or 74.3 Canadian) cents per share. At a long-term tin price of US$23,425/t, we estimate a value for Alphamin of 42.4 US (or 51.2 Canadian) cents per share. However, this rises to as high as C$1.162/share in the event that exploration expands and/or extends the life of operations (see 12 March and 14 May exploration updates). NB Q121 results were absolutely consistent with these expectations.
