Gold Mining Company Completes New Merger

Source: Streetwise Reports


December 4, 2023 ( Newswire) Outcrop Gold and Silver Corp. has completed its acquisition of Zacapa Resources Ltd. Read on to see why analysts like this company's stock.

Outcrop Silver and Gold Corp. (OCG:TSX.V; OCGSF:OTCQX; MRG1:DB) announced in a press release that it has filed an amalgamation agreement for Zacapa Resources Ltd. (ZACA:TSX.V) with the TSX Venture Exchange. Zacapa Resources Ltd. is also a junior gold and copper exploration company operating out of the Southwestern U.S. with high-quality drill targets.

The company highlighted several details of the agreement, including the fact that shares were exchanged at a ratio of four Outcrop shares for every one share of Zapaca, options and warrants for Zacapa were exchanged for Outcrop's options and warrants on the same basis, and Outcrop now holds Amalco as a subsidiary with Outcrop holding its common shares.

In another press release, the company reported that it had issued 30,017,474 shares to former shareholders of Zacapa, a total of 7,727,630 warrants valued at between CA$0.30 and CA$2.72 to holders of Zapaca warrants, and a total of 2,537,500 options of Outcrop worth between CA$0.20 and CA$2.80 to the holders of Zapaca options.

Gold Speeding Ahead

Katusa Research recently reported on the gold market, which it estimates is back on the rise after a dip a few weeks ago. The research seemed especially optimistic about the commodity, noting that "things changed fast, when less than a fortnight later, gold ripped CA$150/oz and entered the overbought territory." The report cited global uncertainty created by rising conflicts and lower liquidity as factors contributing to gold's increasing value.

Rick Mills of Ahead of the Herd also seems to view the gold market positively, which he reviewed on November 18, 2023.

Mills believes a number of factors are creating a favorable market for gold, including lower interest rates and a falling dollar, conflict in the Middle East, high national debt, and buying by central banks.

Mills commented, "If we're right, and we are on the cusp of a global economic revival, the three metals I'd want to be invested in are gold, silver, and copper. Even better, the junior resource companies that own large Au, Ag or Cu deposits in safe jurisdictions that would be of interest to larger, deep-pocketed mining companies."

Chen Lin Visits Company

Chen Lin of What is Chen Buying? What is Chen Selling? visited Outcrop in 2023 and met with the Vice Minister of Mining in Columbia, the CEO of Outcrop, and examined the company's samples, which revealed high-grade silver intercepts, and the company's mining rig.

Stuart McDougall of Research Capital Corporation rated the company as a "Speculative Buy" in September of this year, with a target price of CA$0.60 per share. Research Capital cited a number of factors in the company's positive rating, including the merger with Zacapa and the company's previous maiden resource estimate for Santa Ana, which stated there was an estimated 387g/t silver and 1.98 g/t gold.

According to the company's investor report, the company has some catalysts to report, including ongoing drilling operations.
