Mercator Minerals "outperform," target price raised

Analysts at Macquarie Capital Markets reiterate their "outperform" rating on Mercator Minerals Ltd (ULH). The target price has been raised from C$11.50 to C$12.50.

In a research note published this morning, the analysts mention that the company has sold the life-of-mine silver production at its Mineral Park Mine in Arizona to Silver Wheaton for $3.90/oz. Mercator Minerals is to receive $42 million as an upfront payment, which would enable the company to accelerate the Phase 2 development and to realize budget and schedule synergies going forward, the analysts say

VANCOUVER, Jan. 5 Mercator-Mineral-Park


VANCOUVER, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Mercator Minerals Ltd. ("Mercator") is pleased to announce that it has commenced shipping copper concentrates from its newly expanded Mineral Park Mine in Arizona, less than two years from completion of its December 29, 2006 Technical Report.
The commencement of concentrate shipments from the Mineral Park copper-molybdenum milling facility marks the completion of the construction/development phase of the project and the operations team will now focus on ramping up production to design levels. In accordance with the copper off take agreement that Mercator has with MRI Trading AG of Zug, Switzerland, the concentrates are being trucked into Mexico and delivered to the Port of Guyamas. Provisional payments are due four days after delivery of each 1,000 lot to the Port of Guyamas.
Mike Surratt, President & CEO comments, "With the successful start-up of the copper-molybdenum mill facility and the first shipment of copper concentrates, Mercator has completed the development of the first phase of its expanded Mineral Park Mine. We are now focused on maximizing the operational efficiency of the process plant." Surratt concludes, "We are very pleased with the way this major project has been developed, despite the many challenges that faced the industry during the last few months, in such a short period of time. An outstanding management team, supported by a strong group of contractors and sub-contractors, has brought this major construction project to a successful conclusion with the commencement of copper and molybdenum production."
Additionally, the Company reports that it has made the December 31 interest payment on the Secured Notes issued in 2007, on time and as required.

Mercator Minerals: takeover target?
8/26/2009 1:49:29 PM | Buzz on the Boards

Posters weigh in on rumours involving the company and a molybdenum producer

Shares of Mercator Minerals(TSX: T.ML, Stock Forum) jumped 10.6% to $2.81 with more than 10 million shares traded Wednesday, as posters weighed in on takeover rumours involving the company.

While Mercator released no news on Wednesday, an article from the National Post mentioned the company, as it noted that molybdenum producer Thompson Creek Metals (TSX: T.TCM, Stock Forum) announced a $217 million bought-deal financing on Tuesday worth $217-million with plans to use the cash for development and expansion of existing mining assets, exploration, acquisitions, working capital, and general corporate purposes.

“Good matches for the company include Mercator Minerals or a team-up with Quadra Mining on its large Sierra Gorda project in Chile,” said the article.

On the Mercator Bullboard Wednesday, Birpind1 said: “TCM has stated they are looking for an acquisition and looking for a company with copper production.”

And, intowin said: “Strong rumor today of a TCM takeover. I'll sit and enjoy the ride”

In a post entitled “Merger Talk”, bjorn3d2b posted information from the National Post article, to which knowsnothing613 replied: “whoa. no wonder the sp spiked, and is going higher. I wish I would have known this before putting in my short order. Oh well, I covered. fyi. I also think MOL might be a TCM target due to its Moly/Copper reserves, and proximity to Asian markets. Though it still requires about ~200 million in Capex, and has 150million of debt due in October. we will see how it all plays out.”

Meanwhile, early Wednesday on the Thompson Creek Metals Bullboard, bmann025 said: “taking over ML would make a lot of sense. at current copper prices and with 500 mio $ they can do what ML currently can't do : hedge the copper production and let ML earnings pay back the acquisition price in just a couple of years and then profit for decades from ML's cash machine.…

07.02.10 13:01
Latest forecast far exceeds other projections
Tom Stundza -- Purchasing, 2/4/2010 11:37:40 AM EST

UBS Securities has revised upward copper price forecasts because it expects strong demand to meet supply problems in coming years. UBS now expects copper prices to average $3.80/lb this year and $3.90 in 2011. Copper cathode traded on the London Metal Exchange at $2.33/lb in 2009.  

UBS previously has forecast a 2010 price of $3.30/lb so the new viewpoint is more bullish than the $3.22 projection by J.P. Morgan Securities, the $3.23 forecast from Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, the $3.25 outlook from Southern Copper of Peru, one of the world's largest copper producers, or the $2.93 projection of Germany's Commerzbank.

Chile's influential state copper think tank, Cochilco, expects the world copper average price for 2010 at $3.10/lb, followed by $3.20 in 2011.

"Copper is widely perceived as the most supply-constrained metal," UBS analysts say in a research note. "We would also tilt to the strong end of consensus on just how supply constrained copper is because our view is that the constraints on global copper supply are both cyclical and structural."

For this year, the Swiss bank expects copper demand to grow more than 10% to 19 million metric tons, leaving the copper market with a deficit of 600,000 metric tons-which it expects to rise to 800,000 metric tons in 2011.

21.03.10 22:04
19.03.2010 | 11:45 Uhr


Die Lagerbestände von Aluminium und Kupfer in den Lagerhäusern der Börse Shanghai sind in der Woche zum 18. März weiter gestiegen. Mit über 394 Tsd. Tonnen bzw. mehr als 169 Tsd. Tonnen haben sowohl die Aluminium- als auch Kupfervorräte abermals neue Rekordhochs markiert. Die Kupferlager sind damit allein in der letzten Woche um 9% gestiegen. Auch an der Londoner Metallbörse LME haben die Aluminiumbestände zuletzt wieder deutlich zugelegt. Allein gestern stiegen sie um über 72 Tsd. auf 4,62 Mio. Tonnen und liegen damit nur noch marginal unter dem Mitte Januar verzeichneten Allzeithoch.

Die Kupfervorräte an der LME sind zwar von ihrem 6,5-Jahreshoch Mitte Februar mittlerweile um gut 5% gesunken, befinden sich mit knapp 523 Tsd. Tonnen jedoch nach wie vor auf einem sehr hohen Niveau. Zudem ist dieser Lagerrückgang in Relation zum zuvor erfolgten dramatischen Aufbau der Bestände zu setzen. Von ihrem Tief Mitte Juli hatten sie sich mehr als verdoppelt. Damit bleiben die Märkte stark überversorgt, so dass die sehr hohen Metallpreise immer schwieriger fundamental gerechtfertigt werden können.

Der Nickelmarkt könnte in diesem Jahr gemäß Einschätzung von Brook Hunt und CRU zum ersten Mal seit vier Jahren ein Angebotsdefizit aufweisen. Dies soll vor allem auf eine Erholung der Edelstahlbranche zurückzuführen sein, die mit knapp 70% der größte Konsument von Nickel ist. Ab dem nächsten Jahr dürfte sich der Markt aufgrund einer deutlich steigenden Nickelminenproduktion dann wieder in einen Überschuss drehen. Laut Brook Hunt soll die Minenproduktion über die nächsten 5 Jahre um 350 Tsd. Tonnen bzw. 25% ausgeweitet werden. Damit besteht auch am Nickelmarkt die Gefahr eines langfristigen signifikanten Überangebots.

"Financial Results for the Year ended December 31, 2009

VANCOUVER, Apr 1, 2010 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) -- (Stated in US Dollars unless otherwise indicated)


VANCOUVER, April 1 /CNW/ - Mercator Minerals Ltd. has released its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2009, which are available on SEDAR and the Company's website.

"2009 was a milestone year for Mercator," stated Michael L. Surratt, President and CEO. "We completed the construction and commenced operating Phase 1 at Mineral Park, acquired a major copper project with a full feasibility study that has increased our copper reserves by 113% with only 7% share dilution, completed phase 1.5, and ended a year that saw one of the worst economic down turns in history with over $62 million in the bank. Subsequent to year end we accepted commitments from 4 major international banks for $130 million to redeem the Companies outstanding 11.5% senior secured notes. Even though the mill commenced operations in April and had a challenging start up, Mineral Park sold more than 28.8 million pounds of copper, 1.6 million pounds of moly and 150,000 oz. of silver in 2009. With increasing production, growth from Phase 2 and the development of the El Pilar project, Mercator's future looks brighter than ever."

After interest payments of $14.12 million ($13.8 million in interest paid on the 11.5% senior secured notes (the "Notes") issued by the Company in 2007) and $16.44 million in non-cash items including accretion, amortization and stock based compensation (2008 $7.68 million), the Company recorded a net loss of $17.58 million or $0.13 per share, compared with a net loss of $28.33 million ($0.38 per share) for 2008. Mercator spent $39.2 million in capital in 2009, to substantially increase copper production and to start molybdenum production at its Mineral Park Mine.

   Financial Highlights for the Year ended December 31, 2009

   -   Sold 24.1 million pounds of copper in concentrates, 4.4 million
       pounds of cathode copper, 1.6 million pounds of molybdenum in
       concentrates; 150,000 ounces of silver compared to 10.6 million
       pounds of cathode copper in 2008 (The Company did not produce any
       copper, molybdenum or silver in concentrates in 2008);

   -   Revenue of $88.697 million in 2009 compared with revenue of $29.178
       million in 2008

   -   For the year ended December 31, 2009, the Company reported a net loss
       of $17.58 million ($0.13 per share) compared with a net loss of
       $28.33 million ($0. 38 per share), for the corresponding period in

   -   Assets of $376.45 million for the year ended December 31, 2008 (2008
       - $249.16 million);

   -   Cash and cash equivalents on hand at December 31, 2009 of $62.19
       million as compared to $3.0 million for the year ended December 31,
       2008, and working capital of $40.95 million at December 31, 2009 as
       compared to a working capital deficit of $25.35 million, for the
       corresponding period in 2008;

   -   Subsequent to December 31, 2009, the Company accepted commitments
       from a group of lenders for credit facilities totaling $130 million.
       The facilities are comprised of a $100 million term loan with a one
       year grace period and a five year amortization and a $30 million
       revolving credit facility repayable on the fourth anniversary,
       subject to an annual extension option at the lenders' discretion and
       will be secured by the assets of Mineral Park Inc., a guarantee
       provided by Mineral Park Holdings Ltd. and subject to completion of
       loan and security documentation and customary conditions precedent to
       closing. Upon closing, the proceeds will be used to redeem the
       outstanding Notes.

   -   Subsequent to December 31, 2009, in respect of the Notes, it was
       determined that the Company's earnings before interest, taxes,
       depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), which included the non cash
       charges for stock based compensation as an expense, exceeded the
       interest expenses for the Notes for the quarter ended December 31,
       2009. Accordingly, the Company has reclassified $30 million of the
       Notes as a current liability as at December 31, 2009, representing a
       pre-payment obligation to the Noteholders due in respect of that
       quarter. The Company intends to use the credit facilities, when
       closed, to fund the pre-payment obligation or replace any cash on
       hand used to fund the pre-payment obligation..."}&symb=ML
