Edison estimated Kari Pump’s resource would have a value of US$117 million, or US$1.09 per share, attributable to Endeavour.
The research firm said its valuation of the company at the end of fiscal year 2022 remained at US$33.63 per share.
Endeavour operates mines in Côte d’Ivoire (Agbaou and Ity), Burkina Faso (Houndé and Karma) and Mali (Tabakoto). It also has two major development projects in the highly prospective West African Birimian greenstone belt.
Edison Research noted that the average grade of the maiden Kari Pump resource is at a 31.8% premium to the average of the pre-existing Houndé resource.
