1. Seabridge Gold (SA) is a mineral exploration company engaged in acquiring projects with gold resources in North America, and expanding and verifying these resources through further exploration.

Results from the first seven core holes drilled at the deposit could expand reserves and enhance the project's overall economics. Seabridge says the program is designed to upgrade almost three million ounces of higher-grade inferred gold resources at the Sulphurets and Kerr deposits to proven and probable reserves this year. These resources are currently graded as waste in the 2011 Preliminary Feasibility Study.Late June, in a private placement program, Royal Gold purchased 1.02 million common shares of Seabridge at $30.39 per share, indicating a 15% premium over the volume weighted average trading price of SA's shares for the five-day trading period ending June 14.

To advance their Canadian assets, both companies have decided to transfer five advanced stage and development properties to not only create value from undervalued assets but also to build a premier gold exploration and development company with its principal projects in the leading gold district of Nevada in the U.S. All three analysts covering the stock rate it a buy.
