Klondex Mines – Cinderella Story with Happy Ending

Klondex Mines (TSX: KDX) started out as Nevada exploration story in 2012 at US$35 million market cap
At Permitting Stage, Gibellini is on track to become 1st major vanadium mine in the USA;  

In 4 years, Klondex commissioned 3 mines and grew annual gold production from 8,000 ounces per year to over 200,000 ounces per year, with revenues exceeding $250M

Klondex stock went from $1 in 2012 to $6 by late 2016, 600{3a701354f219a57e7e7d46a505b70225e975b940de2dd07556e20488ab77339d} gain in 4 years, with peak market cap over $1 billion.

Why Prophecy’s Gibellini

Prophecy Development Corp (TSX: PCY) owns the Gibellini project – the only large-scale, open-pit, heap-leach vanadium project of its kind in North America;  

At Permitting Stage, Gibellini is on track to become 1st major vanadium mine in the USA;  

Located in Nevada, premium location for mining- Ranked #1 for North America mining investment (Fraser Institute);  

The Gibellini Vanadium Project is Low Capex, Low Opex and High IRR Project based on independent preliminary economic study*;  

Vanadium price is up more than 600{3a701354f219a57e7e7d46a505b70225e975b940de2dd07556e20488ab77339d} since 2016.

Why Vanadium

Vanadium pentoxide is currently trading at $17.5/lb up from 2016 low of $2.5/lb and has outperformed all other metals in 2018.

China has raised rebar standards in 2018 – a PARADIGM SHIFT which increases global vanadium demand by up to 20{3a701354f219a57e7e7d46a505b70225e975b940de2dd07556e20488ab77339d}

Chinese major Vanadium supply constraints due to environmental crackdown

Vanadium is key in the current ‘green revolution’ – Vanadium batteries are far superior than lithium in grid scale deployment

No wonder vanadium has Marin Katusa called the hottest metal in the World Right Now

Robert Friedland famouslystated:

“We think there’s a revolution coming in vanadium redox flow batteries,” he says. “You’ll have to get into the mining business and produce ultra-pure vanadium electrolyte for those batteries on a massive scale.

We’re very deeply interested in how you store electrical energy in the grid.

Jason Simpkins of the Outsider Club https://www.outsiderclub.com/ recently issued an alert to its subscribers highlighting:

 “Vanadium has unparalleled power.

It’s already replacing those other metals in electric cars and it has a variety of other applications.

For that reason, vanadium demand is soaring. And the country that needs it most, China, is rapidly reducing its export.

That’s a problem, because as it stands now, America currently has NO producing vanadium mines.

However, our own Nick Hodge has found a tiny company (trading under $0.50 per share) that’s set to open US vanadium mine in short order.

That play could deliver investors early gains of at least 3,900{3a701354f219a57e7e7d46a505b70225e975b940de2dd07556e20488ab77339d}.

Nick Hodge of Outsider club in late 2018 stated

“An updated, 2018 PEA pegged Gibellini the after-tax NPV at US$338.3 million and the IRR at 50.8{3a701354f219a57e7e7d46a505b70225e975b940de2dd07556e20488ab77339d}. Gibellini contains 129.28 million pounds of vanadium pentoxide (V205) grading 0.294{3a701354f219a57e7e7d46a505b70225e975b940de2dd07556e20488ab77339d}. The current mine plan envisions producing 9.65 million pounds annually for over 13 years, paying back its capital cost of US$116.8 million in 1.72 years. The after tax net present value of the Gibellini vanadium project at today $17/lb is north of US$338 million, meaning Prophecy is trading at a significant discount to its project value*.

With global vanadium supply declining and demand increasing, Gibellini is the right project at the right time.
