10:33 EDTVALEFreeport McMoRan surges after further cut to capital spending plans
Shares of Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) are surging in morning trading after the company announced plans to cut spending and production in response to current market conditions. It also plans to cut about 10% of employees and contractors at U.S. mining operations. WHAT'S NEW: Freeport-McMoRan this morning reduced its 2016 capital expenditure budget to $4B, approximately 29% lower than the $5.6B estimate on July 23, which it said reflects "aggressive" actions in response to current market conditions. The 2016 CapEx outlook includes $1.4B in mining projects, $600M in mining sustaining capital and $2B in oil and gas expenditures. The company said it will reduce copper sales by about 150M pounds per year in 2016 and 2017 and cut 2016 unit site production by 20%. Additionally, the company plans to reduce 2016 minerals exploration costs to $50M from $100M. Freeport also said it expects a 10% reduction in employees and contractors at U.S. mining operations. The company cited recent declines in copper prices for the reductions and said the actions announced today are the results of the previously announced review of operating plans for its mining business. Freeport said it views the long-term outlook for its business "positively," helped by limitations on copper supply. In the near-term, however, Freeport said it will continue to monitor market conditions and capital spending, but is currently "adjusting operations to maximize current cash flow under weak market conditions while preserving its large mineral resources and growth options for the longer term." WHAT'S NOTABLE: Since late 2014, Freeport has cut its 2015 capital expenditure budget to $6.3B from $7.5B, including reductions of $700M in oil and gas expenditures and $500M in mining expenditures. Earlier this month, Freeport cuts its oil and gas capital budgets for 2016 and 2017 by $900M each in response to market conditions and maintained its expectations for $2.8B in O&G CapEx for this year. In July, after reporting its second straight quarterly loss, Freeport said its cost reduction plans would include potential adjustments to mine plans and future copper and molybdenum production volumes to reduce costs and preserve valuable resources for anticipated improved market conditions in the future. Freeport previously commented that it would pursue additional capital cost reductions, potential additional divestitures or monetizations and other actions as required to maintain a strong balance sheet while preserving a strong resource position. PRICE ACTION: Freeport-McMoRan is up 16.5% to $9.22 in morning trading. Shares are down over 60% year to date. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other major integrated mining companies include Rio Tinto (RIO), BHP Billiton (BHP) and Vale S.A. (VALE).
08:05 EDTTCKNew Gold to sell El Morro Interest to Goldcorp for $90M and 4% gold stream
New Gold (NGD) has entered into an agreement with Goldcorp (GG) to sell New Gold's 30% interest in the El Morro project to Goldcorp in exchange for $90M in cash, a 4% stream on gold production from the El Morro property and the cancellation of New Gold's $93M carried funding loan. The $90M are to be paid at closing of the transaction, expected to be in Q4. The 4% stream is on life-of-project gold production from the 417 square kilometre El Morro property, with currently estimated gold mineral reserves of 599M tons at an average gold grade of 0.46 g/T, totalling 8.9M oz. New Gold will pay a fixed $400/oz. on the first 217K ounces of gold delivered as part of the stream. New Gold will no longer be obligated to repay the $93M in debt that Goldcorp funded on the company's behalf. Goldcorp and Teck Resources (TCK) plan to combine their respective El Morro and Relincho projects into a 50/50 joint venture with the interim name of Project Corridor. Goldcorp and Teck are expecting to commence a Pre-Feasibility Study in early 2016 which should be completed 12 to 18 months thereafter.
