Analysing Natural Resource Company

Hello you wonderful and intelligent people that make up this forum. I very much hope you are having a nice weekend.

I kindly wondered please i know when analysing a typical manufacturing company that is producing sales, it is easy to look at the units sold and its profit margins. However i please wondered how you understand a natural resource company, that has not yet made a profit, however has confirmed through drilling programs, amounts of gold they anticipate to gain from a project please? I kindly wondered how you go about analysing this please, its terms of its overheads and how valuable the gold resource is they have please? If anyone kindly had any thoughts on this i would be forever grateful and thankful it would mean the world to me.

Sending you lots of good wishes and i truly hope you continue to have a wonderful life. Look after yourself and stay positive. All the best.
