09:02 EDTAAAlcoa completes acquisition of RTI International
Alcoa (AA) announced that it has completed the acquisition of RTI International Metals (RTI). The merger, announced on March 9, became effective today. Under the terms of the merger agreement, each share of RTI common stock has been converted into the right to receive 2.8315 shares of Alcoa common stock, plus an amount of cash in lieu of fractional shares of Alcoa common stock. Alcoa expects RTI to contribute $1.2 billion in revenue in 2019, up from $794 million that RTI generated in 2014, with 65 percent of revenues supported by contracts over the next five years. RTI’s profitability is expected to reach 25 percent EBITDA margin in 2019. Contracts that underpin RTI’s growth include the recently announced contract with Airbus for finished titanium structural supply parts for the new A350-1000 aircraft program. Under the agreement, Alcoa will supply titanium parts for the fuselage, among other components. Alcoa expects global aerospace sales growth of 8 to 9 percent in 2015. Projections for 2016 and 2017 sales growth have nearly doubled to 8 and 13 percent, from 4 to 5 percent and 6 percent, respectively, showing the ongoing strength of the sector. Eighty percent of RTI’s revenues in 2014 were from the aerospace and defense industries. With RTI, Alcoa’s 2014 pro forma aerospace revenue increases by 13 percent to $5.6 billion. RTI is being integrated as a standalone business unit into Alcoa’s downstream Engineered Products and Solutions segment.

13:47 EDTFCXEarnings Watch: Morgan Stanley positive on Freeport-McMoRan ahead of Q2 results
Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) is expected to report second quarter earnings on Thursday, July 23, before the market open with a conference call scheduled for 10:00 am ET. Freeport-McMoRan is a natural resource company with an industry portfolio of mineral assets, oil and natural gas resources, and a production profile. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 7c on revenue of $4.28B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is (15c)-17c on revenue of $3.68B-$5.11B. LAST QUARTER: Freeport-McMoRan reported first quarter adjusted EPS of (6c) against estimates for (7c), on revenue of $4.15B against estimates for $4.06B. Consolidated sales for Q1 totaled 960M pounds of copper, 263K ounces of gold, 23M pounds of molybdenum and 12.5M barrels of oil equivalents, compared with 871M pounds of copper, 187K ounces of gold, 27M pounds of molybdenum and 16.1 MMBOE in Q1 of last year. Consolidated sales for 2015 are expected to approximate 4.2B pounds of copper, 1.3M ounces of gold, 95M pounds of molybdenum and 52.3 MMBOE. The company forecast FY16 sales of copper at 5.4B pounds and sales of gold at 1.9M oz. It sees FY17 sales of copper at 5B pounds and sales of gold at 2.4M oz. Capital expenditures are expected to approximate $6.5B for 2015, including $2.5B for major projects at mining operations and $2.8B for oil and gas operations. Freeport-McMoRan said it has taken actions to reduce or defer capital expenditures and other costs and is evaluating funding alternatives to advance growth projects in its oil and gas business, including consideration of a sale of public equity for a minority interest in its oil and gas subsidiary. On its Q1 conference call, management said they were optimistic for mid-term and long-term prospects for business. STREET RESEARCH: Sentiment on the Street leading up to Freeport’s Q2 report has been positive. On April 28, Morgan Stanley upgraded Freeport-McMoRan to Overweight from Equal Weight with a $29 price target. The firm had reduced concerns about financing due to ramping volumes and cost declines. Morgan Stanley believed Freeport-McMoRan's copper growth projects were near an inflection point and production increases would drive a 28% volume increase at a lower cost and reduced capex. On June 9, Morgan Stanley said Freeport-McMoRan’s valuation was attractive. The firm believed Freeport's Q1 was a multi-year trough for earnings and free cash flow. Morgan Stanley saw minimal execution risk at three key projects and expected costs to decline 22% in 2016. Morgan Stanley viewed Freeport's valuation as attractive and reiterated its Overweight rating and $29 price target. PRICE ACTION: Freeport’s shares are down about 25% since the company's Q1 report and have plummeted more than 60% over the past twelve months. In afternoon trading ahead of Thursday's Q2 report, Freeport’s shares are down about 4.7%.

07:11 EDTPPPPrimero expects to replace FY15 production with drilling from 1H15
Primero Mining Corp provided an update on its recent exploration activities at the Black Fox Complex, located near Timmins, Ontario, Canada, and at the San Dimas mine located in Durango, Mexico. Based on the success of its exploration activities to date, the company expects to replace its estimated full-year production with the results of exploration drilling from the first half of 2015. Additionally, the company has approved $6.1M in capital expenditures to advance a ramp to access the Deep Central Zone at Black Fox. "Our 2015 exploration program has been very successful so far," commented Joseph F. Conway, CEO. "Exploration drilling during the first half of 2015 is expected to have already replaced our estimated full-year production at both Black Fox and San Dimas. Drilling at the Black Fox mine has expanded the mineralization in the Deep Central Zone and importantly indicates that mineralization is continuous between the current production level and at least 800 metres below surface. Exploration has been focused on delineating mineralization between the current 560 metre production level, which has an average grade of approximately 6.0 grams per tonne, and the Deep Central Zone with higher-grade mineralization extending to 800 metres, currently with an average grade of approximately 8.5 grams per tonne. As we continue to drill deeper at Black Fox we are encountering higher average grades and wider continuity, which is very promising for the future of the mine. In addition, drilling at San Dimas continues to expand the recently discovered Jessica vein and also delineate other high-grade veins such as Victoria and Perez."
07:09 EDTIAGIAMGOLD provides update on Boto Project in Senegal
IAMGOLD Corporation announced additional drilling results from its 100% owned Boto Gold Project in eastern Senegal, West Africa. The company is reporting assay results from the final 26 infill diamond drill holes totaling 7,782 metres out of the 12,416 metres completed during the 2015 delineation drilling program. The Boto project comprises 236 square kilometres of exploration licenses located in eastern Senegal along the Senegal-Mali border. The geological setting of the project area is similar to the prolific Sadiola and Loulo gold districts in adjacent Mali, being underlain by highly prospective, Birimian-aged metasedimentary, volcanic and intrusive rocks along a seven kilometre strike length of the Senegal-Mali Shear Zone.The project hosts an indicated resource of 22.8 million tonnes averaging 1.7 grams of gold per tonne for 1.23 million ounces and an inferred resource of 10.96 million tonnes averaging 1.8 grams of gold per tonne for 635,000 ounces. A significant percentage of the total resources are derived from the newly discovered Malikoundi deposit which is the largest deposit discovered to date on the property. The company has completed its planned 50x50 metre infill delineation drilling campaign initiated in 2014 with the completion of the 12,416 metres of diamond drilling in 2015 and the final assay results are being incorporated into a revised resource model which will allow completion of an updated resource estimate anticipated in the third quarter. In addition, metallurgical composite samples were prepared from selected core samples and have been forwarded to Canada for further metallurgical test work in the third quarter 2015.
