The share price chart has been in a downtrend since April. However, considering the poor resources market, Kore Potash has been a victim of the times. The company has commenced its review of the DFS study and will update shareholders when it’s completed.

The question on everyone’s mind: how much will the project cost to get into production and what’s the profit upside? If these numbers are positive, the share price should skyrocket.

The bottom line: Kore Potash has a market capitalisation of roughly $45 million at 10.5 cents, with $11.6 million in the bank. That’s an enterprise valuation (market cap less cash) of roughly $34 million. Put differently, if the DFS results highlight the potential hundreds of millions in profits with a low capital cost, the share price seems dirt cheap at these prices. There probably isn’t long until the market finds out the result either, mind you.
