Investment summary

Monarch Gold (MQR) sold its Wasamac and Camflo assets to Yamana for C$200m but retains a suite of potentially high-return projects as Monarch Mining, which it spun out in January 2021. Its portfolio is located in the established and highly prospective Abitibi gold belt. Beaufor mine and the Beacon mill is planned to re-start production by June FY22 with minimal capex. Once in production, its cash flows plus existing cash will be invested in Croinor, due to start up in FY24. Our valuation is C$0.99/share comprising C$0.69 for Beaufor and Croinor and C$0.30/share for second tier assets McKenzie Break and Swanson. A C$6.7m private placement of units and excellent drilling results on Beaufor will increase its measured, indicated and inferred (MI&I) resources when updated in August 2021 and likely improve its valuation.
