*Edison issues initiation on Triton Minerals (TON)* 
 
Triton Minerals plans to develop its Ancuabe graphite project in Mozambique 
to feed the established and high-growth expandable graphite market. In our 
view, this is a prudent way forward in a sector dominated by graphite 
companies tussling with the vagaries of battery-ready graphite production 
and an end-market yet to mature. With East African graphite deposits already 
advancing in many cases (AMG's Ancuabe mine is now commissioned, Syrah's 
Balama is under construction, Volt Resources is securing off-takes), it is 
clear the region's graphite is suitable for industrial uses. An important 
constituent is China, where some producers are aiming to outsource raw 
graphite in order to clean up old, inefficient graphite mines as well as 
secure expandable graphite for the recently revised (2015) fire-retardant 
cladding regulations. 
 
Our SOTP base case valuation is 22c per share, based on the Ancuabe scoping 
study (60% of our SOTP value or 13c) with a further 9c (the remaining 40% of 
our SOTP valuation) added based on a discounted valuation of the company's 
very large additional resources at Balama and Nicanda Hill/West. Our base 
case valuation uses a notional 75/25 debt/equity structure to fund Ancuabe's 
development, assuming equity at the current share price (5c). However, our 
valuation is sensitive to the share price assumption of the equity 
component: at a 10.0c share price, our base case valuation becomes 26c; at 
15c it becomes 28c. Our Ancuabe valuation uses a weighted graphite 
concentrate basket price of US$1,369/t and a 10% discount rate to reflect 
general equity risk.
