Initiation Report out on Birimian Limited+ (BGS : AU : A$0.23 | US$40m)
Jim Taylor has a new initiation piece out: Birimian Limited — High-quality African Lithium Development, 18 October 2018. Birimian’s 100%-owned Goulamina Lithium Project in south-west Mali is already one of the world’s ten largest hard-rock lithium deposits and has further upside after a recent PFS demonstrated the potential for it to become a globally significant, long-life, high-return spodumene concentrate producer. Birimian is now establishing offtake agreements and completing a DFS; these are expected to allow a final investment decision to be made in 2Q19.
Initiating coverage with a BUY rating and a target price of A$0.55, indicating over 100% upside to the current price. We base our target price (TP) on a risked SotP NAV assuming a lithium concentrate price of US$666/t and a TP/NAV multiple equivalent to 0.2x. Having demonstrated attractive returns in the PFS, we believe that securing offtake arrangements, completing the DFS and finalising debt finance for the project could significantly de-risk its development and act as catalysts for a rerating of the company.
