Petaquilla Minerals Ltd is a growing, diversified gold producer committed to maximizing shareholder value through a strategy of efficient production, targeted exploration and selected acquisitions. The Company operates a surface gold processing plant at its Molejon Gold Project, located in the south central area of its 100% owned 842 square kilometre concession lands in Panama - a region known historically for gold content. The Company received its operating permit from the Government of Panama on November 18th, 2009, authorizing the Company to proceed to commercial production of its 100% owned Molejon deposit. The Company achieved commercial production on January 8th, 2010, after having run its operations at an average of 70% of its normal capacity for a consecutive period of 30 days.

Petaquilla is developing a large project in Spain  and in Portugal (to be updated)

Petaquilla Minerals Ltd. ("PTQ") intends to distribute to its shareholders one share of Panama Development and Infrastructure Ltd. ("PDI") for each four shares of PTQ held on the record date for the distribution.   Distribution of PDI will be effected by way of a Plan of Arrangement or some other tax-efficient mechanism. Transaction is subject to all requisite shareholder and regulatory approvals.   Petaquilla Minerals expects to announce the record date for PDI spin-out by the end of the year.

Molejon Resource estimates

Based on the pre-feasibility level design work completed and reviewed, the authors believe there are approximately 15.3 Mt of gold and silver reserves that can be produced averaging 1.30 g/t gold and 2.05 g/t silver and recovering approximately 586,000 ounces of gold and 711,792 ounces of silver. In addition, the pit contains 36.8 Mt of aggregate reserves which should yield approximately 29.4 Mt of saleable aggregate products after crushing and screening.  Behre Dolbear believes that the mine will be able to produce the projected 643,000 ounces of gold and 1,008,693 ounces of silver

Mining Investor's Toolbox:

Mining Valuation for Beginners

In Situ Valuation Calculator

In situ valuation (quick and dirty, doesn't take into account a number of important factors):

  • Buy below 10% of in situ mineral value: (Mineral value * 0.10) / shares outstanding
  • Sell above 40% of in situ mineral value: (Mineral value * 0.40) / shares outstanding

Basic Valuation:  EPS * 10 = Target Price  ... EPS = (revenue - costs) / shares outstanding

Advanced Valuation: DVM's valuation ratio = [stock price x (basic shares outstanding + in the money derivatives assuming exercise + newly issued shares from financing) - working capital - cash from in the money derivatives assuming exercise - cash from newly issued financings + major capital cost items if applicable] / gross profit

Target price = cash flow multiple / DVM's valuation ratio x stock price




Panama Project

The project area is located in the District of Donoso, Province of Colon, approximately 100 kilometers west of the Panama Canal on the Caribbean Coast. Petaquilla Minerals' land holdings are situated in the perfect position to ship concentrate at low cost to Europe, Asia, and North America. 

The combined project area comprises 795 sq km on tide line. The plant site and open pit is serviced by a new road built to a 70-tonne specification.

Project tenure is secured by 'Ley Petaquilla', a project specific mining law that gives the two companies secure ownership, in three renewable phases, for a total of sixty years.

Petaquilla Portugal Project


Almada Mining SA in Portugal.

Almada Mining SA is located in Portugal and is 100% owned by Petaquilla Mineral.

The Bania mine is on 5.12 km2 land and the total exploration rights area of the Banias project is 117km2.

This area was mined during the Roman empire. No resource estimate has been done but samples from the mine yielded as much as 523gr of gold per ton. Of course the average will be a lot lower than that (around 5 to 10 g/t) but most of it is "free" gold so no need for a mill. A bunch of shaking tables will do it.

18 holes over 5,000 meters are being drilled to get a resource estimate.

The mine is approved for a trial period of 150,000 tons a year for 3 years. Yes, get you calculator and use 10gr per ton just for fun.

Capex is about $5M and the mine could be in production 9 to 12 months from now. One nice thing is that there is no need to dewater the mine.

The company has another project in Portugal it is the Jales project 120km away. I do not have a lot of data about that one. Bania is the one to concentrate on right now.

Here are a few pictures of the mine
