Cosa Resources (CSE: COSA)is a bold exploration company that's hell-bent on striking gold (well, uranium, technically) with the next big discovery in North America. They're not content to just sit around and twiddle their thumbs - nope, these folks are on a mission to find the motherlode of radioactive riches, and they're not gonna stop until they do. So, if you're looking for a team with grit, determination, and a serious passion for geology, look no further than Cosa Resources. They're ready to rock and roll, and who knows? Maybe you'll be able to say you were there when they struck it big.

Uranium Bull Case

Listen up, folks! The uranium market is going through a bit of a rough patch right now - there's just not enough of that glow-in-the-dark stuff to keep up with the demand for nuclear energy. Blame it on the pandemic, the high production costs, or the geopolitical risks - but whatever the reason, mines are closing down and operations are getting suspended. That's bad news for countries looking to go nuclear, which is becoming increasingly popular these days. To make matters worse, long-term contracts with uranium producers are coming to an end, which means nuclear power plants need to find new sources of uranium. It's like a game of musical chairs, but with radioactive materials! Some investors, however, aren't deterred by this situation - in fact, they're downright bullish on the uranium market. They're predicting prices will skyrocket in the near future, so keep an eye out for those shiny yellow rocks!

The Management of Cosa

COSA (CSE: COSA) Management spills the tea: while some uranium exploration companies are about as productive as a sloth on a Sunday, others hit discovery after discovery like it's going out of style. Take COSA Resources, for example, with a management team that's basically a photocopy of the legendary IsoEnergy crew - CEO Keith Bodnarchuck, VPX Andy Carmichael, Chairman Steve Blower, and Advisor Craig Perry. These guys struck uranium in the Athabasca Basin, turning a nobody into a $250 million market cap sensation. It's almost like they have a secret formula for success, or maybe they're just really good at finding things that glow in the dark.

Over the last dozen years, four major discoveries have rocked the region, including NextGen's Arrow Project, Iso Energy's Hurricane Project, Fission's Triple R Project, and Denison Mines' Wheeler River Project. And here's the kicker - the brains behind COSA management have had a hand in each and every one of those game-changing discoveries. It's incredibly significant for a management team to possess such extensive expertise not just in the industry but also in the region. A common issue encountered by exploration companies is the absence of familiarity with the industry and laws governing the region. The ability to understand and analyze geologic data that is specific to the area can be a game-changer, ultimately determining the success or failure of a discovery narrative.

Additionally, in the case of an exploration company, the management team opts for lower salaries than the industry standard to preserve the burn rate. This approach prevents unnecessary dilution of the shareholders' equity and directs the company's funds towards enhancing its progress through investments in exploration activities, rather than spending shareholder money on extravagant expenses such as expensive restaurant bills.

Geology of Cosa

Now, let's get into the nerdy stuff… 

Billions of years of stable ancient geology, hydrothermal processes, and fault zones getting hot and bothered have led to the Athabasca Basin being one of the most uranium-rich places on Earth. It's a geological love story with a radioactive ending. 

Well, well, well, look at Cosa's fancy portfolio of properties! It's like they strategically placed them all within these northeast trending uranium corridors just to make all the other properties jealous. Can we talk about these long linear northeast trends with low magnetic susceptibility? They're like the cool kids' table in the Eastern Athabasca Basin hosting the biggest uranium deposits ever discovered, including the famous McArthur River mine. Wait, there's more! Cosa's Ursa property covers a large portion of the underexplored Cable Bay Shear Zone uranium corridor, so it's like they're paving the way for even more discoveries. Cosa, you sly dog, you've done it again.

Alright, let me break it down for you. Ursa is a massive property, covering over 57,000 hectares, located just 45km west of Cameco Corp.'s McArthur River uranium mine. It's located along the Cable Bay Shear Zone, a structural corridor with a strike length of over 60km packed with geophysically conductive trends, structurally disrupted sandstone and basement units, and elevated uranium levels, making it a highly prospective and significantly underexplored hotspot for uranium exploration. However, most of this area is completely untested, and only a few areas have been explored in the past making this place a treasure trove waiting to be discovered!

This picture pretty much sums up Ursa lol

Share Structure / Financials 

Finally, it's time to get down to business and talk about the most exciting thing since sliced bread: the capital structure of a junior mining company! Brace yourselves, because this is where things get really interesting. So, here's the deal with Cosa: they've got 33 million shares floating around, with a tidy sum of 1.7 million bucks in the bank to fund some serious exploration (and maybe buy some office snacks). But get this - the management team owns a juicy 35% of the company, with strategic investors coming in at 20%, and the rest is all up for grabs for us regular folks, weighing in at a solid 45%. It's like a game of Monopoly, but instead of Boardwalk and Park Place, we're talking about shares and percentages. 

Here's the icing on the cake - this deal is backed by the Inventa Capital group of companies, which is a major league power move. These folks know how to pick winners, as evidenced by their involvement in some seriously successful ventures like Vizla Silver, Skeena Resources, and IsoEnergy. Don't believe me? Look them up and see for yourself what it takes to succeed in this game. With Inventa Capital on their side, it's clear that the team at COSA Resources means business, and investors would do well to take notice.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, this company has ticked off all the major boxes for a successful narrative. You can't just roll out of bed and stumble upon multiple discoveries or nail multiple successful deals like it's a walk in the park. It takes skill, expertise, and a bit of magic to make money for shareholders. These guys possess all of that and more, what do you think would be the smart thing to do ;) ? (just my two cents, of course)
