TORONTO, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Cerro Grande Mining Corporation and the Board of Directors (the "Company" "CEG") (TSX: CEG) (OTCQX: CEGMF) announce the completion of a valuation report which incorporates various technical and financial reports on the Company's assets. The full report, dated March 19 2014, is for internal use only. The report was prepared by Michael G. Fowler, M.Sc, MBA, C.Eng, Senior Mining Analyst, who is a member of the firm LOM, an exempt market dealer firm based in Toronto, Canada. Mr. Fowler, an independent party to CEG, visited the Pimenton and Tordillo properties as well as the Company's headquarters in February, 2014.
LOM made the following comments. The market value of a corporation is defined as the price that an informed and independent purchaser would pay to an informed, willing independent seller at a given time in an unrestricted market condition, with neither party being under any compulsion to transact. In the context of this report company value pertains to the price that a purchaser would pay to acquire CEG.
The approach to valuation was based on summing the company's asset values and deducting any liabilities. The report reviewed two approaches to company valuation. The first approach, the one used in this report, is based on a fundamental valuation of the company's assets using discounted cash flow and option pricing techniques. This method sums the values of company assets on an individual and isolated basis. The second approach compiles independent market values of comparable companies and then uses them to determine a value for CEG. This second approach was not followed because LOM could not find good market comparables.
The report does not analyse or address in-depth technical studies and related details, which have been adequately reported on by other consultants in various National Instrument 43-101 (Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Deposits) and feasibility reports on the company's assets.
LOM primarily used the option pricing methods to value the Company's major assets and has valued the Company at US $14,880,000 or at Cdn $0.15 cents per outstanding share.
Cerro Grande Mining Corporation is a minerals producing, exploration and development company with properties and activities currently focused in Chile.
