April 6, 2011 Mustang Completes Additional Holes at New PGM Zone TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 6, 2011) - Mustang Minerals Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MUM)(FRANKFURT:NJF) ("Mustang") is pleased to provide an update on exploration and drilling relating to the new PGM discovery drill hole at its Mayville Property. Mustang recently announced results from MAY11-07 which intersected 9.15 meters at average grade of 9.5 g/t combined platinum and palladium within a wider zone of 41.16 meters at an average grade of 2.9 g/t platinum and palladium. MAY 11-07 was drilled as part of a reconnaissance drill program testing a number of geophysical targets across the Mayville Property where Mustang has an existing copper-nickel-pgm resource.
Mustang has now returned the drill to the new PGM discovery area and to date has completed three additional drill holes. The first hole was drilled 50 meters south of MAY11-07 (at the same 65 degree angle) to test for mineralization at a greater depth as well as define the southern limit as MAY11-07 was collared into PGM mineralization. The next two holes were drilled 50 meters to the east and 50 meters to the west of the drill collar at MAY11-07. Drilling in all three holes has encountered a strongly altered ultramafic unit containing locally finely disseminated chalcopyrite+pyrrhotite+pyrite sulphides and locally significant visible chromite which is the same rock type that hosted MAY11-07. Drilling is continuing at roughly 50 meter step outs along strike from the discovery hole.
In addition to the drilling, the company has added additional claims and will soon complete linecutting. A ground IP and magnetics survey will be starting in the very near future which will aid in further exploration of the new zones.
The Company is pleased to see a similar host package of rocks in the recently drilled holes encountered in MAY11-07. The extent of the PGM mineralization hosted in the area of MAY11-07 is not known at this stage and the existence of any PGM mineralization cannot be determined until future assays from the recently completed drill holes are received.
Mustang personnel are currently splitting the drill core from the recently drilled holes which will be immediately sent for assay. The Company will request an expedited turn around time for these high priority holes. As well the company will be examining the chromite potential of the current discovery as well as testing for other elements of the PGM suite.

Wie ich hier schonmal schrieb, gehe ich davon aus, daß wir früher oder später die alten Höchstkurse (ca. 0,95 ?) wieder sehen werden!
Um mal einen Eindruck von Mustangs Potential zu bekommen und mal ein Größenordnung für ein Kursziel zu nennen, hab ich mal mir nur mal (!) die Daten des Makwa-Projekts rausgesucht:
Sollte Mustang mit Makwa planmäßig in Produktion gehen, sollte das bei aktuellen Nickelpreisen von 12,46 USD/lb so aussehen:
Um die Rechnung zu vereinfachen, lasse ich die Beiprodukte trotz höherer Erträge mal weg, dafür nehme ich jedoch den bereinigten cashcost-Satz.
Mit 8,2 Mio lb Nickel/Jahr zu je 12,46 $ mit cashcosts von 2,7 $/lb, wäre dies ein Gewinn von 80 Mio $ VOR Steuern (8,2x(12,46-2,7)=80), after tax ca. 80x0,6=48 Mio $. Bei aktuellen 157 Mio shares wäre das 0,3 $ EPS, mit KGV 10 -> Kursziel 3,00 ? mit KGV 20 -> Kursziel 6,00 ?
Ob es zur Produktion kommt oder Western Areas NL vorher Mustang übernimmt, oder keins von beiden, muß jeder selbst für sich entscheiden.
Aber wenn eine, wenn auch gebrauchte, Mühle gekauft wird, ein wohl nicht ganz ahnungsloses Milliarden-Unternehmen wie Western knapp 20% an Mustang hält und dann noch Insider mehrere 100.000 $ privat investieren, dann denke ich:
ich bin jedenfalls ganz zufrieden in diesen schweren Zeiten
MUM TSX-V $0.395 +0.025 +6.8% vol 402,750
ok, am Schluss haben sie noch nen 5 raufgezogen.
Warum sind alle Minen & Metalle schwach ?
Goldmann Sachs hat herausgegeben, dass nun der Anstieg der Rohstoffe beendet sei. Ob dies wirklich stimmt (bei dieser Gelddruckerei) wird erst die Zukunft aufzeigen. Auch sind sie ja Spitze, insbesondere im verbreiten von Meldungen und hintenrum das Gegenteil machen )
I have not seen a play like this in a very long time. This is something very exciting to be a part of and going forward who knows what valuation Robin and the gents would accept as fair value. MUM is Robins' baby and he appears to have been in no rush in the past to sell out even when the stock was north of $1.50. I believe he knows the value and has a price in mind and with MUM and partners being less than 2 years away from actually mining their assets who knows what insiders would accept for their shares, but I would think it should be $2.50 and up.
Muss ich jetzt echt mal loswerden, dank dir und einigen weiteren eifrigen Thread-Autoren habe ich meinen Einstiegspreis (mit dem bin ich auf die RSR-ler reingefallen) gerade noch so zu 11 ct massiv verbilligt. Deine Posts haben mir Mut gemacht, meinem Gefühl nach zu geben und trotz (bis dato knapp 90% Verlust) diese "Verliereraktie" nach zu legen. Nu bin ich fast schon wieder im Plus.
mir ging es aber so ähnlich und war auch dick im Minus (und hab weiter durchgehalten, weil die Situation sich ja nicht verschlechtert hat, sondern nur der Kurs), die Daten rund um Mustang haben sich jedoch nun stark verbessert (vor allem war sie ja billiger geworden ;-) ) und die Insiderkäufe waren dann doch der Hammer. Was schnell hochgeht, kann auch schnell wieder runterkommen, aber mittelfristig wird der Markt sie wieder auf die alten Hochs schieben... viel Spaß!
April 10, 2012 East Bull Lake Drill Program Commences TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 10, 2012) - "Mustang Minerals Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MUM)(FRANKFURT:NJF) and Western Areas NL (TSX:WSA)(ASX:WSA) have initiated a drill program at Mustang Mineral's East Bull Lake property located west of Sudbury and near Massey, Ontario. A minimum of seven (7) drill holes and two thousand (2,000) meters are planned to be drilled. These drill holes will test the Ni-Cu-PGE potential of a number of interesting geophysical anomalies (including TDEM and ZTEM anomalies) associated with the East Bull Lake mafic-ultramafic intrusive complex.
"Three drill holes will be drilled at each of the Parisien and Bullfrog grids where previous drilling has intersected sulphide mineralisation. Additional drill holes will test deep ZTEM targets, one of which was recently refined with Quantec's Titan 24 magnetotelluric (MT) system. The drilling will be carried out by Denis Crites Drilling Ltd. of Porcupine, Ontario. In addition to this drilling, Mustang and Western Areas are conducting further ground geophysical surveys (TDEM) at two areas, known as the Sables West and Savage grids, to refine anomalies identified from airborne geophysical surveys."
East Bull Lake is an interpreted 20 km long mafic intrusive complex consisting of two separate zoned intrusions joined by a 5 km-long feeder dyke. Numerous occurrences of base metal and PGM mineralization have been identified in outcrop and shallow drilling around the margins of the interpreted intrusive complex. Under the terms of the East Bull Lake Agreement (as amended) Western Areas retains a right to earn up to 65% interest in the East Bull Lake Property by electing to fund exploration payments of $3.5 million over a period of 3 years.
Mustang is also continuing with exploration drilling at the Mayville Cu-Ni-PGM Property in Manitoba. A thirty hole drill program is ongoing with two drill rigs. Targets include extensions of the PGM Zone and on strike and depth extensions of the M2 Zone (Cu-Ni-PGM).
Western Areas NL owns 19.9% of the common shares of Mustang Minerals.

The Company is pleased to see the continuation of the M2 Zone to greater depth on the west side of the M2 Deposit. A number of the drill holes have been surveyed with downhole EM and specific areas are targeted for follow up drilling. Notably, the wide zone of mineralization in MAY12-56 appears to have further potential to depth. Follow up drilling in the area of MAY12-57 is also planned. MAY12-57 was drilled on the eastern part of the deposit and intersected 25.0 meters which assayed 1.05% copper and 0.45% nickel.
The follow up drill program is planned to start in August 2012. Thereafter the Company anticipates completing a resource update for the Mayville Property targeting a significant resource upgrade. Follow up work will be funded from existing cash and working capital of the Company.
The Mayville Intrusion hosts the M2 Zone resource which is a magmatic nickel copper system. Sulphide mineralization consists of chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite, pentlandite and pyrite and a variety of textures ranging from disseminated to locally massive. The M2 Deposit has a current strike length of over one kilometer and is open at depth. The current near surface resource is 9.2 million tonnes at 0.61% copper and 0.23% nickel.
Drill hole cross sections of the recently completed drill holes have been posted on the Company website at www.mustangminerals.com .
All core samples are sent to Accurassay Laboratories in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Analysis is completed for nickel, copper, cobalt and silver using an Aqua Regia digestion followed by AAS/ICP finish. For gold, platinum and palladium, fire assay of 30g aliquots followed by combination fire assay and AAS finish is employed. Drill core is logged and split on the Makwa site by Mustang personnel with half the core retained and stored. Mustang implements a QA/QC program on drill core including inserting blanks, duplicates and commercial standards at regular intervals with all sample submissions to the laboratory.

Mustang Drilling at Mayville Property Mustang Minerals Corp, (TSX VENTURE: MUM) (FRANKFURT: NJF) (“Mustang” or the “Company”) Mustang Minerals today announced that it is resuming drilling at its Mayville Property. The planned drill program is for a minimum of 2,000 meters. The purpose of the drilling is to complete resource definition for the purposes of completing a new updated resource estimate for the Mayville M2 Copper-Nickel Deposit. The drilling completed at M2 deposit in the first part of 2012 encountered broad zones of copper-nickel-pgm mineralization beneath previously drilled holes. Narrow intercepts of semi-massive to massive copper-nickel-pgm mineralization were also encountered. Down-hole borehole geophysics has defined several EM targets warranting additional drilling in the immediate vicinity of the previous holes. These EM targets will be tested as part of the upcoming program. A long section showing the approximate location of the upcoming holes has been posted on the Mustang website at www.mustangminerals.com The Company has scheduled a NI 43-101 resource estimation update following completion of the drilling. “The completion of resource drilling at Mayville will be an important next step in development of our property tenements in the Bird River Sill area of southeast Manitoba”, said Robin Dunbar President and CEO of Mustang. “The Mayville Gabbro Complex is a strongly mineralized magmatic copper-nickel-pgm system located in an area of excellent infrastructure. Quantifying the near surface resource potential at Mayville will be an important next step for Mustang.” Mayville is located 35 km by road from the Company’s Makwa Nickel Deposit. Currently, the outlined mineralization at the two properties is detailed below. 1. The Makwa Ni-Cu Deposit has a NI 43-101 outlined reserve estimate completed in February 2010 by Micon International Limited of 9.86 million tonnes in the Probable Ore Reserve category containing 0.541% nickel, 0.113% copper 0.433 g/t PGM at the Makwa Project. 2. The Company’s Mayville Project is located approximately 35 km by road from Makwa and has a present NI 43-101 Indicated Resource of 9.227 million tonnes containing 0.61% copper, 0.23% nickel and 0.174 g/t palladium.
