In the midst of another attempted takeover by stealth, Petropavlovsk PLC (LSE: POG) announced their trading results for H1 2020 which leaves them on track to deliver one of their best years ever, operationally and financially, with more to come in 2021. This is down to the perseverance, skillset and hard work of the workforce out in the Amur Region and their CEO Dr Pavel Maslovskiy, who has staked his reputation on the successful build out of the POX plant. Any corporate raider (and shareholder alike) should realise, whether it be Vekselberg or UGC, that without the support of Dr Maslovskiy you won’t win the hearts and minds of the workforce essential for the smooth running of the organisation. Meanwhile, the gold price has run through $1,900/oz; clearly a positive for this leveraged business. Incorporating this and the results into our modelling delivers a new Target Price of 50p and the set of financials shown in the right-hand column.

Shanta Gold (AIM: SHG) has announced this morning its production and operational results for the quarter ended 30th September 2020 – see Fig 1. Overall this was a robust performance (from one of the most consistent operators in the sector) in the face of the pandemic and a very busy quarter for the company at corporate level. QoQ production fell to 19,973 oz and AISC rose to $883/oz – both caused by a temporary drop in grade – but the ongoing strength in the gold price resulted in a 16% and 46% increase in EBITDA QoQ and YTD respectively. There was an increase in net debt to $5.1m which can be explained by the $7.1m cash outlay for the West Kenya projects as well as the reduction in the hedge book (they also have $5.9m of gold dore in the gold room). The company remains on track to hit its full year guidance of 80-85koz of production at an AISC of $830-880/oz which would make it the third year in a row they have hit their unaltered guidance for the year. This would be a remarkable achievement for a major gold miner operating in a developed market let alone one operating in the South West corner of Tanzania. Likewise the fact the company has recorded zero lost time injuries makes it nearly three years in a row with no LTIs. With the greenlight for Singida and a scoping study completed for the West Kenya Project during the quarter, the company can look forward to leveraging this operational expertise across a larger and longer life production base (c.220Koz of annualised production). We continue to believe the market is still to wake up to this given a market cap of US$219m, next to no debt and EBITDA annualising at $90m.

H1 2020 saw extreme commodity price weakness, but was still a productive period for President, especially for its balance sheet, with debt more than halving to US$15m following a placing, strategic subscription and debt-to-equity conversion. This leaves President on a sound financial footing, well positioned to ride out sustained lower prices if necessary while delivering the growth potential within its core Argentine business, further evidence of which was provided with today’s positive drilling update. We are cutting our price target by 10% to 3.5p due to lower near-term production forecasts, but this is still more than double the current share price with further operational catalysts on the near-term horizon.

Oil posted a small weekly gain on tentative signs that demand is picking up even as a new wave of coronavirus cases casts a shadow over the market.
Futures in New York edged lower on Friday, but still managed to record an advance of 0.7% this week on shrinking US crude stockpiles and signs of improving demand in China and India. Gains were capped by record new virus cases from Germany to Portugal and the biggest surge in US daily infections in two months.
Crude futures in New York have clung close to the $40-a-barrel mark since September amid uncertainty around a demand recovery as the virus rages. Meanwhile, OPEC producers and allies see a risk of an oil surplus next year if Libya's production rises and demand remains depressed.
At the same time, the market's structure continues to strengthen, with the spread between Brent's nearest contracts at its narrowest since late July. For West Texas Intermediate futures, the prompt spread rallied to its tightest contango in a month.
West Texas Intermediate for November declined 8 cents to settle at $40.88 a barrel.
Brent for December settlement lost 23 cents to $42.93 a barrel. The contract rose 0.2% this week.
Prices pared earlier losses on Friday after American retail sales and consumer sentiment indicators topped estimates.
The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies are facing pressure to postpone their plans for tapering output cuts. Given the uncertainty over the oil demand outlook, the right course of action is to wait for now, JPMorgan analysts including Natasha Kaneva wrote in a report. The move to add another 2 million barrels of day onto the market in January could be postponed by a quarter, the report said.
OPEC+ is also contending with the unexpected return of Libyan oil output, which hit 500,000 barrels a day this week. The group forecasts that global oil supplies could increase by 200,000 barrels a day next year if Libya manages to revive supply and the pandemic hits demand harder than expected, according to a document seen by Bloomberg.

Trifast has released an interim trading update which highlights trends that have continued from the AGM statement in September with trading slightly ahead of the Group's base case assumptions for FY21 of revenue down c.16% YoY. September was the strongest month in the Group's first half and the press release indicates that October has also started well for sales and orders. The trading update indicates resilience in the business considering the tough trading environment.

Phoenix today updates its resource for the Empire deposit in Idaho after the summer's drilling (32 additional holes). The new Measured and Indicated (M&I) Resources stands at 22.9Mt grading 0.4% copper, 0.2% zinc, 10.3g/t silver and 0.32g/t gold (up from 19.3Mt grading 0.4%, 0.2%, 11g/t and 0.35g/t respectively from the last calculated resource in May 2020) plus a further 10Mt in the Inferred category at similar grades. M&I resources now stand at 173kt copper equivalent (current metal prices) against the previous M&I resource estimation at 155kt copper equivalent.

GeoPark (GPRK US)C; Target price US$20 per share: Drilling at CPO-5 has started - The 3Q20 operating update did not contain any surprises, with overall production increasing by 5% vs the previous quarter, reflecting higher sales in Brazil, Argentina and Chile. Importantly, gross production at Llanos-34 is back to 60 mbbl/d with some work-over backlog and development drilling having restarted. Overall net production (across all of GeoPark’s assets) was 40 mboe/d at the end of September and FY20 production guidance of 40-42 mboe/d has been reiterated (2H20 capex guidance of US$25-35 mm). Drilling at CPO-5 (GeoPark WI: 30%) has now commenced with the Indico-2 appraisal well. With the Indico-1 well still producing 5,169 bbl/d since first oil in December 2018, Indico-2 could add 60% to CPO-5 overall production by YE20 in a success case. GeoPark will publish its 2021 capex budget on 4 November. We view this as an important event as this will provide further visibility on a very exciting drilling programme with 5-7 wells at CPO-5 and 1-2 wells in Ecuador. The exploration program for 2021 will likely test the continuity of the Guadalupe play encountered on Llanos-34 into CPO-5.
Tethys Oil (TETY SS)C; Target price SEK75.00 per share: Initiating coverage - Tethys Oil is a well-funded, dividend-paying, Sweden listed US$160 mm market cap E&P with ~25 mmbbl 2P reserves in Oman and ~10 mbbl/d WI production. The company stands apart from its peers in three principal ways: (1) It has achieved “textbook” execution, turning what was initially a small uncommercial onshore discovery on a tiny portion of Blocks 3&4 into a large field that has already produced ~100 mmbbl with a further ~120 mmbbl 3P reserves. (2) The production is very cash generative even at US$40/bbl. At US$45/bbl, even at the currently OPEC constrained production rate, operating cashflow funds all development plus some exploration activities and allows Tethys to pay a 5% dividend. (3) Tethys is conservatively run with US$60 mm in cash and no debt. Historically, the story was about steady y-on-y production, reserves and dividend growth. While these features are still present, an investment in Tethys now also offers diverse exposure to high impact exploration with drilling activities on recently acquired onshore blocks expected to start before YE20. Our target price of SEK75 per share reflects ReNAV and implies over 70% upside.

Oil retreated as a further increase in Libyan output threatens to return more supply to a market that is already grappling with a pandemic-induced slump in demand.
Crude futures fell 1.9% in New York on Friday and posted their first weekly decline in three. Libya lifted force majeure on its Ras Lanuf and Es Sider ports and oil output will surpass 1 million barrels a day in four weeks, according to the state-run National Oil Corp. The announcement came as prospects for more Libyan output increased following the signing of a permanent cease-fire agreement.
Prices were already on the decline as talks appeared to stall on a US stimulus deal before the election, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin trading blame for the impasse. A deal would have injected a sorely needed boost to demand, with positive catalysts for prices harder to come by heading into the end of the year.
US benchmark crude futures declined 2.5% over the week as a resurgence of coronavirus infections spurred governments around the world to renew tighter lockdown restrictions. While comments from Russian President Vladimir Putin signalling openness to delaying a planned OPEC+ output hike helped bolster prices, the continued return of Libyan production complicates the group's tapering strategy.
West Texas Intermediate for December delivery declined 79 cents to settle at $39.85 a barrel.
Brent for the same month declined 69 cents to end the session at $41.77 a barrel. The contract fell 2.7% over the week.
Despite the prospect of more Libyan supply returning to the market, Brent's structure remained firm. The spread between the global benchmark's nearest contracts strengthened on Friday to its narrowest contango since late July
Meanwhile, traders' attention is shifting toward the outcome of the US election in November, which could have varying implications for US supply. Presidential candidate Joe Biden said fossil fuels need to be phased out over time, a comment seized on by Donald Trump as a threat to the industry. But there is debate over how much such a policy would impact oil prices in the near future.
Other oil-market news:
Venezuelan crude inventories have surged 84% over the past three weeks as the threat of US sanctions ward away buyers of the nation's most important commodity. That raises the risk that state-run PDVSA will have to start shutting in production again, and is the latest sign that Venezuela's oil industry is on the verge of collapse.
Oil and gas output in Norway, western Europe's biggest producer, could rise to a record by the middle of the decade as new fields come on stream, according to consultants Rystad Energy AS.
African-focused diversified minerals exploration company principally focused on the discovery and development of its lithium and gold projects in emerging frontier provinces. IronRidge has significant and multiple province-scale gold and lithium projects across Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire through joint ventures while advancing an expansive gold portfolio in Chad. The company continues to review opportunities with its two wholly-owned iron ore projects in Gabon, West Africa and its bauxite and titanium assets in Queensland, Australia. IronRidge’s focus on lithium and gold gives investors exposure to rapidly growing lithium technology markets while hedging prominent global economic uncertainty via gold exploration portfolio.

Central Asia Metals (CAML LN) reported strong copper results for Q3 2020, up 14% QoQ to 3.9kt enabling a 3.7% increase in our 2020F production forecast to 13.9kt, in line with new guidance of 13.5-14kt. YTD copper production of 10.5kt was broadly flat YoY. This does imply a marginal YoY increase overall for 2020F, however, as well as realised grades being ahead of expectation, we expect CAML to push hard at Kounrad to offset Sasa disruption as much as possible. Kounrad has been out of focus recently, however, with copper prices up 10% YTD and with a strong fundamental outlook, the asset’s low cost base continues to underpin the CAML investment case.

Despite the absence of new drilling activity, Trinity's Q3/20 production has remained robust, averaging 3,135bopd - an 11.3% YoY increase (Q3/19: 2,816bopd). YTD 2020 average production volumes have averaged 3,232bopd, a 9.8% YoY increase (YTD 2019: 2,943bopd), with 2020 production guidance remaining unchanged at 3,100-3,300bopd. Oil price realisations YTD 2020 have averaged US$37.3/bbl and, as a result, no Supplemental Petroleum Tax (SPT) will be payable in respect of the first three quarters of 2020. Cash as at 30 September 2020 was US$22.2m (30 June 2020 US$19.7m). Elsewhere, we view the proposed Budget reforms to the SPT regime as an important step forward by the Trinidad and Tobago Government and a recognition that SPT needs reforming. The proposed reforms will enhance cash flows between US$50-US$75/bbl and therefore allow companies to invest to grow production and deliver attractive returns for shareholders. We update our valuation and reiterate our price target at 31p per share, a 250% premium to the current share price.

Trans-Siberian Gold's (TSG) Q320 results show improved year-on-year and quarter-on-quarter top line results, despite a reduced operational performance, largely due to higher gold and silver prices and increased tonnages. Gold grade and silver grades from the Asacha Gold Mine for the first nine months of the year are slightly lower than we had expected [due to Q1 performance]. Production levels above are expectations, which has negated the impact of the lower average grade for the first 9 months. We raise forecasts and our target price to 184p.
