Expert Comments:

Joe Reagor, ROTH Capital Partners (1/19/18)
"On Jan. 23, 2018, Pretium Resources Inc. announced its Q4/17 production results and provided initial guidance for 2018. . .Q4/17 production was 70,281 oz gold. . .throughput and recovery rates were both above our expectations. . .the company guided to 150–200 Koz gold production in H1/18."

Andrew Kaip, BMO Capital Markets (1/11/18)
"Pretium Resources Inc. delivered one of the smoothest ramp-ups to commercial production in 2017 of any junior developer over the last 15 years. Despite this strong execution, the company continues to trade at a significant discount to the peer average on grade concerns."

Joe Reagor, ROTH Capital Partners (1/1/18)
"On December 21, PVG announced that it had filed an application to increase its mill throughput from 2,700 TPD to 3,800 TPD. . .We had previously anticipated the company would file for a production rate increase and had assumed a rate of 2,900 TPD beginning in late 2018. Thus, this increase is significantly above our expectations and we view it as a major positive catalyst for PVG. . .This increase had a major impact on our DCF and as such, we are increasing our price target from $17 to $21, while reiterating our Buy rating."

"Pretium Resources Inc. has just submitted an application to the British Columbia (B.C.) Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources and the B.C. Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy which outlines an increase in capacity at the Brucejack mill to 3,800 tpd, up from the current 2,700 nameplate. . .with an expansion, we would theoretically see a move to nearly 640 Koz/year, representing a 42% increase per year."

Andrew Kaip, BMO Capital Markets (12/22/17)
"Pretium Resources Inc. announced that it has filed an application with the British Columbia ministries to increase Brucejack mine production rates to 3.8 Ktpd. . .the application that was submitted reflects a production rate increase to an annual average of 1.387 Mt from 0.99 Mt (3.8 Ktpd from 2.7 Ktpd), or an increase in production rates of 41%. . .the company noted that it expects the approval process to take six to 12 months."

"Pretium Resources Inc. is Bob Quartermain's super high-grade, monster-sized gold project in northern British Columbia. The stock has colorful history already, with plenty of ups and downs, but it rose about 85% from the price when the Construction Decision was announced to First Pour. In this case, that seems to be just the beginning, as the mine ramps up to expectations—and those expectations are phenomenal. It's still a great story." read more >
