Exploration Premium: Prevalence & Implication
After illustrating the enterprise value multiples
of the (gold-focused) research constituents
as the valuation backdrop and relying on
market effciency (& continuous disclosure), the
observation is made that capital markets could
attribute, on average, an exploration premium to
explorers and developers in the resource sectors.
Exploration premium could perhaps refect the
hope for further exploration success and minerals’
discovery, as refected by implied discount rates,
linking prevailing market prices to the respective
disclosed life-of-mine schedule(s).  If there is
underlying truth to this observation, a question
becomes whether industry practice incorporates
such an exploration premium in its decision-
making practices when evaluating explorers and
developers (and if not, exploration activity would
be rendered chronically underfunded and erratic
in intensity).  If time permits, a brief comparison of
selected peers will be examined and decomposition
of the multiples illustrated, linking them through the
resource conversion and reserve life ratios.
