Rating changed to a Market Perform. We have lowered our investment rating to Market Perform from Outperform pending significant improvement in the company’s liquidity position and a visible path toward net income and cash flow growth from operations. Outside of its mining assets, the company operates much as a start-up within its Fuels and Metals businesses. We think those segments may require significant capital investment and we would like to see a clearer funding path. Additionally, we would like more details such as the components that drive the economics of the business models for each segment (i.e. terms of licensing agreements, royalties, and fees for engineering services).

First quarter 2024 achievements. Comstock achieved significant milestones during the first quarter, including securing all required operating permits and the commencement of production at its photovoltaic recycling facility in Nevada. Comstock Fuels commenced sample production of commercially available hydro-deoxygenated bioleum oil (HBO) and executed agreements for up to a $3 million investment in RenFuel K2B AB. Lastly, Comstock Mining updated its internal Dayton-Spring Valley economic assessment and expects to complete a mine plan by year-end 2024.
