WRM trading well below valuation say DJ Carmichael
2 minute read
Stock broking firm DJ Carmichael have identified WhiteRock Minerals’ (ASX:WRM) Red Mountain Polymetallic Project in Alaska as being an advanced project with ‘plenty of upside’.
The Red Mountain Polymetallic Project in Alaska, is an advanced, zinc-dominated VMS (volcanogenic massive sulphide) exploration project located within 100 kilometres of Alaska’s second largest city, Fairbanks.
In an updated research note on the 2018 exploration strategy planned for WRM’s globally significant Red Mountain Zinc-Silver VMS Project, analysts from DJ Carmichael determined that there’s potential for WRM to ‘increase resources and possibly to establish a new, 100% owned, VMS camp just 100 kilometres south of Fairbanks’.
The broker also considered the company’s advanced, epithermal Mt Carrington Gold-Silver Project in northern NSW.
DJ Carmichael labelled WRM a ‘Speculative Buy’. It assigned a value to WRM’s Red Mountain Project of $52 million, or 6 cents per share. Add to that $17.3 million ($0.019) for the Mt Carrington Project, and the broker values the combined Red Mountain and Mount Carrington Projects at 8 cents per share. For the coming 12 months, DJ Carmichael is targeting a share price of 4 cents.
This is well up from the current share price of 1.2 cents, suggesting there could be upside potential for WRM shareholders.

WRM Managing Director and CEO, Matt Gill said “The company is very excited about the potential for its globally significant high-grade Zinc VMS Project at Red Mountain and the progress it has made with the Pre-Feasibility Study at the Mount Carrington Gold – Silver Project.”
Late last year, WRM announced its exploration strategy for Red Mountain with the planning for this now well underway. At around the same time the company also released the positive findings from its Mt Carrington Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS).
