Summary (from last analysis - 11/16/2014)

I loved Bear Creek Mining until June 25, 2011. That was the day the President of Peru did the highly unusual act of revoking the mining rights at their Santa Ana project. He did this because of political pressure from local resistance to the project in Southern Peru. They still have their huge flagship project at Corani (300 million oz at 50 gpt). Corani is on schedule for production in 2017 at 10 million oz (if they can finance the project). They could reach 13 million oz of production during the first 8 years, then production will drop to 8-12 million oz for the rest of the mine life (22 years).

Because of base metal offsets (4.5 billion lbs of lead and zinc), the cash costs at Corani are projected below $5, making it a cash cow. In fact, for the first 5 years, cash costs are supposed to be negative. Very low cash costs makes it likely the can finance the $565 million capex. However, they might have to scale back the size of the mine to get financing. An updated feasibility study is due in Q1 2015. They plan to complete permitting and financing in 2015. Production is possible for 2017 if silver prices rise.

If they can get Santa Ana back (management is confident this could happen), this could be an exciting company with two large projects heading to production. Santa Ana will take 18 months and $70 million to begin production of 5 million oz if they get their mining rights back. The cash costs at Santa Ana are projected to be about $8 per oz.

It's hard to predict the outcome of Santa Ana, but it really doesn't matter. If they are left with only Corani, this stock is likely a 5 bagger by 2016 (if they get financing), and perhaps a 20 bagger long term. The true risk is political. Is revoking of mineral rights the beginning of a change towards mining in Peru? Are higher taxes and potential nationalization a possibility in a few years? On the other hand, there is a possibility that Bear Creak will get back their mining rights for Santa Ana. If that happens, this stock is probably a 25 bagger.
