December 3, 2008 Stock Pick: Nevsun Resources Ltd. (NSU)

Stock Price: $0.41

Nevsun Resources, Ltd., through its subsidiaries, engages in the acquisition, exploration, development, and production of mineral properties. It primarily focuses on properties with gold, as well as base metal, such as copper and zinc resources/reserves in Africa.

NSU is a small cap gold company trading at a market cap of less than $55 million. It has received a lot of attention in the past and has now pulled back. We believe gold stocks will continue to shine now that gold prices are back in an uptrend. Small cap gold stocks could provide the biggest gains for investors in the gold mining sector.

NSU is trading significantly off of its highs of $2.50+ from earlier this year and off its short-term high of $0.74 in a recent uptrend. Gold moved off its sideways pattern and reached a high above $820 and has now corrected down to around $780 where it has begun to stabilize. We expect gold prices to move back above $800 and challenge $900 in the short-term and in the long-term we believe we will see gold up over $1,000 per ounce as inflation attracts investors to gold mining stocks.

NSU received approval on October 30th for an $89 million commitment to the development of the company’s Bisha Project. The development of this project places NSU in a favorable position to take advantage of rising gold prices. The company has commented that the project has low site operating costs throughout the projected mine life and high returns. Production is expected to start on this project is during Q2 2010. We expect this project to be priced into NSU shares moving forward.
