What I like about the company: its focus on Zinc and Lead, and that its high grade deposit is based in BC Canada in a new mining district to be discovered by investment crowd.http://www.mantleresources.com/032006/files/en/asp/properties/default.asp1. Solid management: Varshney family is backing the project. Peeyush Varshney is CEO. Jim Mustard has joined the company last year after spending years as a VP and Senior Mining Analyst at Haywood Securities and literally seen hundreds of projects.2. Location: BC Canada 24 mil tonnes of 7.6% Zinc and 1.5% Lead next to Cirque deposit of Tec Cominco and Korean Zinc J/V with 50 mil tonnes. 3. Value - Goods are in the ground: company is not loosing money during very low prices, deposit is open to expansion and drilling is under way. Company holds massive land package all along this region and around Tec Cominco/Korea Zinc claims. Blue sky potential of a new discovery could ignite the story. 4. Infrastructure requirements: Road has been built to the deposit and all major infrastructure is in place now for developing a mine.5. Industry recognition: Lundin Mining LUN.to LMC has 10% stake in the company and is considering it its strategic investment.6. Valuation: Check comparables in recent acquisitions:http://www.mantleresources.com/032006/files/en/asp/ir/pdfs/Mantle%20Presentation%20May%202008.pdf7. Visibility: Company is very active in presenting itself to industry majors.8. Financing availability: During recent collapse in the Junior mining MTS.v holded relatively well, announced financing at CAD0.90 is a vote of confidence in the developing story.9. Insiders: Constantly buying in the market.http://canadianinsider.com/coReport/allTransactions.php?ticker=mts10. Catalyst: Company is an M&A target for industry majors looking for stable country risk and mining friendly environment projects with high leverage to Zinc prices.
