VSA Resources is house broker to Bacanora (BCN) but has visited its operations and come back initiating its coverage with a detailed report, below.
I pick up the writings of an anonymous but influential Battery Materials writer, a well known City figure who warns that the misery for shareholders in Bacanora Lithium (BCN) is set to intensify. In an email sent out this morning he notes, with the stock at 35p:
Well this is embarassing. On December 14 B acanora Minerals (BCM) announced that China based investor NextView Capital was investing in new shares at 94.53p to take a 19.83% stake worth £31.17 million. On February 1 were told that the Chinesee had not completed by January 31 as scheduled but not to worry. Today we learned the awful truth...
Lithium has been all the rage amongst AIM investors over the past few years, but the reality is that many of the projects which people have been getting excited about will fail to ever actually produce anything.
This is the question posed by top broker Andrew Monk today. I put it down to associated Lenigas stink and the fact that its assets are just not that great. But over to the VSA expert who writes.

Firstly, as it is the season of goodwill and to celebrate the fact I managed to get to December 23rd without buying anyone a present, Bacanora Minerals is my stock to revisit. This is partly a tribute to the late, great David Lenigas, formerly the King of Aim. His abdication from the throne last week

Amid the general commodity gloom, entrepreneurial Mexico-focused lithium hopeful Bacanora Minerals (BCN) is making distinctly optimistic noises after reporting a C$2.7 million (£1.3 million) loss for the year to June. Chief executive officer Peter Secker says the company, which floated on AIM last year with a £4.75 million placing at 33p, half its then price on the Toronto Venture Exchange, and now trades at 86p, faces ‘highly favourable demand dynamics, as a result of the vital role lithium plays in growth industries, such as mobile communications, electric vehicles and energy storage.’

Tesla Motors, US maker of electric vehicles, has agreed to buy lithium hydroxide for its batteries from AIM-quoted Bacanora Minerals' (BCN) Sonora lithium project in northern Mexico. Financial and other details of this agreement, which is for an initial five years and renewable after that, remain for some reason shrouded in confidentiality, but Colin Orr-Ewing, Bacanora’s chairman, calls it ‘a vital and monumental step forward in commercialising the large lithium resources which the company holds.’

Other commodities may be plunging and testing six-year lows. But lithium, in demand for storage batteries, mobile devices, electric vehicles and ‘smart electricity grids, is proving a notable exception so far, with prices paid by key Chinese users this year ranging from $5,000 (£3,205) to $6,500 a tonne, up from $3,000 at the turn of the century. That is why entrepreneurial Bacanora Minerals (BCN), backed by controversial David ‘Gatwick Gusher’ Lenigas’s Rare Earth Minerals (REM), is setting up a starter operation at its Sonora project in North East Mexico.

A bullish resource update from Bacanora Minerals (BCN) for its Sonora lithium project in Mexico has comforted fans who have fuelled the shares’ AIM rally from below 40p in late November to 88p now. Chaired by veteran sector player Colin Orr-Ewing and backed by equally entrepreneurial fellow AIM counter Rare Earth Minerals (REM) and its colourful Australian boss David ‘Gatwick Gusher’ Lenigas, the company says ubiquitous consultant SRK carried out the report on Sonora, identifying an indicated resource estimate of 1.2 million tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) with an average 2,200 parts of LCE per million parts of rock plus a more tentative inferred resource estimate of 6.3 million tonnes with 2,300 parts per million.
Bacanora Minerals (BCN) listed on AIM in July amongst a lot of hype, but since then its share price has been on a one-way downwards journey.
Entrepreneurial AIM and Toronto counter Bacanora Minerals (BCN) has commissioned Canadian multi-national engineering consultancy Hatch to advise on its two key ventures in northern Mexico, the $140 million (£89 million) Sonora lithium project and the Magdalena borate project. Chairman Colin Orr-Ewing, who hopes if possible to have a feasibility study on at least one these projects out before the end of the year, stresses the significance of having Hatch, whose $35 billion of contracts include Aussie-listed Galaxy Resources’ lithium plant in China’s Jiangsu Province, to help achieve its goals.
Early birds and arbitrageurs got the worm when Bacanora Minerals (BCN) floated on AIM on Friday 25 July, with a £4.75 million fund raising at 33p. This is little more than half its price on the Toronto Venture Exchange, where it has traded for three years, and it surged immediately to 82p, to give a stock market value of some £65 million. The company, steered by veteran entrepreneur and chairman Colin Orr-Ewing, is out to commercialise two projects in Mexico, to produce two versatile products, borate with applications ranging from fibreglass to skin cream, and lithium, for electric vehicle batteries, and insists the float price was agreed in May before excitement about the London issue sent the shares soaring in Canada.
