When I saw that it was up a $1.20, I jumped out of my chair so hard I almost broke my laptop. I made some kind of war cry or girly squeal in my excitement, it's hard to recall which one. RVM is Super_Douche's largest holding. Which makes it a very good day for me.
Are you still out there?!
Congratulations to the longs! There's no reason this stock should not grow by at least 300%. I will be keeping, and not selling.
Valuations put RVM at approx. $ .30 per OZ equivalent in the ground. Let's get 'er to a buck!!!
Quite a relief to be in RVM on a day when the majority of miners sell off with precious metals sliding along with stock markets...
Rock Creek, sure stands like ... a rock.
Interview with John G. Shanahan, president and CEO a day or so ago.
I really believed RVM was getting NADA for valuation for Rock Creek, and in fact were undervalued just on TROY alone. This may wake the market up to their upside and in ground value.
I believe still a long ways to run.
Raising their target still very conservative though.
Nov 17 (Reuters) - : * Stonecap raises Revett Minerals Inc target price to C$8.60 from C$7 For a summary of rating and price target changes on U.S. companies
for what its worth, chart wise, If the market comes plunging down in 2012....Revett's chart is staring at a big fall down to the 2.50 - 2.30 area. Is it immune to such a move??
No don´t think it is and if the commodities market plunges in 2012 then I think revett is going down with it like most of the resource stocks.
On the other hand they have spare cash, they are making good money and part of their coppar pruduction is hedged so I think they will survive without much trubble if the shit hits the fan.
I have a horizon of about 3 years so if it tanks then ill just keep buying cheeper because long term this is a really good deal with rock creek as the diamond in the rough... =)
Take it easy and enjoy your sunday evening.
HOWEVER if you are bullish at all on silver, given the fundamentals right now for the metal, RVM is likely one of the top picks in the silver space. Using any metric you choose, P/E, Insitu metal in ground, cash - debt, growth prospects etc, Revett's valuation is perhaps the best in the junior space. Their silver hedge is done in JAN and they have hedged a significant % of their copper production at 4$ , so the downside as far as earnings go is minimal.
We have seen the baby get thrown out with the bathwater in the past, ( the credit crunch of 08) and this created a once in a lifetime buying opportunity. With the latest MF Gobal meltdown , the effect on the commodities markets is yet to be fully realized. The CME stealthily raised margins again last week on the precious metals, and there is definite systemic problems at the Comex.
Speculating on how far these stocks will fall in allout market mayhem selloff is kind of a fool's game, as there is no guarantee that silver and gold wont head for the moon, if there is any hint of default on the LME and CME (crimex).
However there is also no guarantee that the paper certs you hold for the stock are safe, given the way MF Global minions were able to raid investors accounts with no repercussions pending for the outright theft of that paper. Had they been holding physical silver, and not paper from the crimex , these poor investors would still be holding some value. I suspect we may see a rush into physical in a big way as this story goes on. How the miners and such will be affected is hard to predict....
Looks like they need 2012 to finish up the legal business and they will hopefully have al that sorted at the end of 2012.
Then 2 years for phase 1 of the mine where they drill down and along the vein messuring and testing.
If that works out they can start with the actual mine and mill construction and that will take about 3 years. That part should go well because they will use the same kind of mining and the same kind of flotation mill as they use at troy. They also have experienced personnel at troy so they should get production up and running fast.
Anyways production is a far way off but the last legal hurdle will be at the end of next year but they have been 100% so far and have done everything correctly. They are also running troy very efficient and squeky clean.
If i remember correctly construction of the mine at Rock Creek will cost about 250 million. They have nice income from troy mine also silver wheaton is a large shareholder so I can´t see that finance will be a problem.
Risk is that the projekt will be delayed by more legal stuff, but there was a new law passed I think that will make companies able to begin construction even though they are in some types of litigation.
They also need to buy 2450 acres of land for grizzly mitigation, they have bought some already and I can´t see that this would be a big problem.
Well let´s hope for the best.
Still when you consider Troy Mine should have them valued at 175 million $ on its own merits, they are getting about a penny per oz of silver in the ground for Rock Creek.
Some estimates by select analysts have the Net Present Value of Rock Creek at 10$ a share, seems RVM at a big discount still.
If an explorer discovered 300 million ozs of silver with 2 billion lbs of copper in economic grades like these , they would have an immediate billion$ valuation before ever getting to feasability and environmental studies.
Ridiculous the discount for Rock Creek given by the market, because of the delays in getting the project started.
I image the more they float around the $5 mark, the more the bigger firms will likely pick them up (some have a minimum price limit before they can dump money into the stock). I'm hoping to put some more in my back pocket before they push the price too high. Best of luck with the craziness of the market and the FED lending/printing money to all their buddies. I never thought QE3 would be pushing money into foreign countries. It is a tough call to start buying more or wait until after the 9th...

Copper mined DOWN 50%
Breakeven silver cost NOW up to $29 an ounce. (Based on 50/50 split of the 2.2 million dollar loss between Ag and Cu)
AWFUL PERFORMANCE no matter how you slice it . The market knew, as the stock price before the release was down over 50% from the highs. I tried to find out why. Me? I'm clueless. I've lost my ass on this one. Does anyone have anything positive to say about holding this pig other than rock creek approval by the end of the year???? (yeah right)
Revett Reports Q2 2012 Results
SPOKANE VALLEY, WA
-- August 9, 2012 -- Revett Minerals Inc. (NYSE MKT:RVM / TSX:RVM) announced its consolidated operating and financial results for the first half of 2012 and second quarter of 2012 . The financial results are based on US GAAP unless otherwise indicated and all currencies are in United States dollars unless otherwise indicated.

Net income for the first half of 2012 was $1.5 million or $0.04 per share (basic) on revenues of $32.7 million. For the second quarter ended June 30, 2012 the Company recorded a net loss of $2.2 million or $0.07 per share (basic).
Net cash from operations(1) for the first half of 2012 was $11.0 million. Net cash from operations(1) for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012 was $3.5 million.
Cash and short term investments on hand increased to $30.0 million, a 19% year to date increase over cash on hand of $25.2 million as of January 1, 2012.
Adjusted EBITDA(2) for the first half of 2012 was $5.6 million. For the second quarter ended June 30, 2012 EBITDA(2) was $0.4 million.
Silver production for the first half of 2012 was 602,762 ounces, a 3% increase over the first six months of 2011. Second quarter silver production totaled 278,387 ounces averaging throughput grades of 1.02 oz/ton. Copper production for the first half of 2012 was 4,185,318 pounds, a 17% decrease compared to first six months of 2011.

Consolidated Financial Results
Total revenue for the first half of 2012 was $32.7 million compared to $31.5 million for the first half of 2011. Revenue for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012 was $13.5 million compared to $18.8 million in the second quarter of 2011. The decrease in revenues and production for the second quarter of 2012 was primarily due to lower metal prices and reduced access to the higher grade C Bed mining areas, because of extended spring rains and unseasonably high snow melt. The Company was able to mine in the A Bed and Lower Quartzite mining areas at lower daily outputs. Mining in the C Bed area resumed in late June and has now returned to planned levels.
The Company is pleased to reconfirm its adjusted production guidance levels for 2012 at 1.325 million ounces of silver and 10.0 million pounds of copper.

Cost of sales increased in the first half of 2012 compared to 2011. This increase was due to higher costs to final market (freight, treatment and refining charges) along with increased labor costs, fuel costs, and a non recurring charge for planned equipment conversions to B75 bio diesel to meet DPM (diesel particulate matter) emission standards during the first half of 2012. It is anticipated that cost of sales will remain at these levels for the remainder of 2012.
Our exploration and development costs also increased in the first half of 2012 compared to 2011 due to increased exploration work in and around the Troy Mine, along with higher costs associated with the Rock Creek Supplemental EIS. Similarly, higher general and administrative costs in the first half of 2012 were attributable to higher professional fees associated with technical related studies at Troy and Rock Creek.
The second quarter net loss of $2.2 million or $0.07 per share (basic) included a non cash charge of $2.0 million for the issuance of stock options to all employees of Revett Minerals and Troy Mine Inc.
At June 30, 2012 cash and short term investments were $30.0 million. Adjusted EBITDA
(2) for the first half of 2012 was $5.6 million.

Most miners have worse reports now, both as a result of higher costs but especially with the declining silver prices in mind. I don't think it looks that terrible. I'm looking for a turnaround throughout the sector, and to me Revett looks cheap atm.
Have been looking at Revett for ages, but finally when I want to get in, I'm out of liquidity, lol. Without saying too much, RVM actually showed up among the ones with the highest rating out of all the silver miners in our database. Plus only a bit more than a handful of gold miners had better figures - and the total nr. of companies are in the hundreds. The newest numbers have been added though, and it has dragged RVM down to medium-rating, since their cash flow has temporarily gotten harmed.
Still, a lot of these juniors can start flying if we see silver performing soon again. The ones with huge reserves should ultimately get rewarded as well.
What's happening with the huge project they've been struggling a bit with in...was it Montana? If they were to get a go there down the road, this should turn into a billion dollar producer.
Thanks Long Gold Silver. Potential yes, current status, questionable. The business model requires adding cash on a monthly basis for Rock Creek.
Depleting cash reserves is disconcerting when you know you will have to come up with millions to access the reserves at Rock Creek. They just might be shut out of the financing markets with this kind of performance, regardless of whether Rock Creek gets approved or not. The dilution will be severe if they have to issue lots of stock to start up Rock Creek. My guess is that at these price levels they would be VERY attractive as a takeover candidate should the Rock Creek approval be forthcoming.
Granted the price of silver has hurt them. The real issue to me however is the breakeven number. They now need $29 silver just to make a dime. That's scary and increases the risk of this stock to nose bleed levels. It looks like Global Hunter Securities agrees (although their price target is still somewhat positive).
What happened to Revett?
2012 had to be the break through year, with the rock creek decision. Based on the performance one can guess the court decision wasn't positive. Any chance for revett to get some day the go ahead? I read the november release but I didn't understand it
Mrgneiss (God bless) opened this thread with "I can't believe no one has started a Revett thread yet on here! Seriously, THEY have the BEST upside potential of any silver stock ; ) !"
Can we still agree about it?
(Mrgneiss the 100th ht on your thread opening post was from me!)
Sold Revett with a small profit, it hasn't done much since. By the way, haven't heard from Mrgneiss for awhile. (Disappeared, changed username ?) I always thought his insights were well worth reading.
