Western Copper and Gold (NYSEAMERICAN:WRN) (TSE:WRN)‘s stock had its “buy” rating reiterated by investment analysts at HC Wainwright in a research report issued on Tuesday. They currently have a $1.75 target price on the stock. HC Wainwright’s price objective indicates a potential upside of 150.00% from the company’s previous close.

The analysts wrote, “We further note that the company has already started integrating the BATT outcomes into the tailings facility design for Casino, which is likely even more important given the recent Vale (VALE; not rated) tailings dam failure in Brazil that remains in the headlines across the world. We highlight that this extra engineering work has thus far caused the company to defer submission of its ESE Board (YESAB). While increasing overall timelines for the site amid our first production estimate by a year, we believe this delay likely has no impact on the longer-term viability of the project.””

NYSEAMERICAN WRN opened at $0.70 on Tuesday. Western Copper and Gold has a 12 month low of $0.35 and a 12 month high of $1.01.
