New Analyst Issues Strong Speculative Buy Rating on Azco Mining - AZMN

(AZMN)

Dutton Associates Announces Investment Opinion: AZCO Mining Strong Speculative Buy Rating In Initiating Coverage By Dutton Associates

Friday January 19, 12:30 pm ET
EL DORADO HILLS, Calif.--Dutton Associates initiates its coverage of AZCO Mining (AZMN) with a rating at Strong Speculative Buy and a target price at $3.00. The 21-page report by Dutton senior analyst Mike Niehuser is available at http://www.jmdutton.com/ as well as from First Call, Bloomberg, Zacks, Reuters, Knobias, and other leading financial portals.

AZCO Mining has the characteristics of both a good company and good investment. Management has restructured the Company while making selective acquisitions with the potential to produce cash flow in the near term. In addition, the Company is not widely known or understood, which creates a mismatch between the stock's current price and full valuation of opportunities.

AZCO has four advanced projects located within the politically stable and mining-friendly jurisdictions of the southwest United States. They have two precious metal deposits in New Mexico (Summit and Ortiz) and two industrial mineral projects in Arizona (Black Canyon and Planet). Management is completing the restructure of the Company's balance sheet. Progress has been obscured by late filings and consequently the Company has traded on the pink sheets. Filings have been held up by auditors, who requested clarification of the books of a private corporation the Company recently acquired.

Valuation of natural resource companies, due to many risks and uncertainties, can be problematic. AZCO is a U.S. company and currently has not complied with Canadian NI 43-101 relating to reserves or resources. We are confident that with resumption of timely filings of financial reports and execution of available opportunities, the Company will end 2007 in significantly better shape both as a company and an investment. We have visited all of the Company's projects with management and are impressed with progress to date.
