Speculation is that the new C.E.O. has secured financing and the new investors are being allowed to purchase shares in the open market before the news is announced. Depending on the type of financing and the subsequent expected start of actual gold production I would think an initial run to the .15-.20 range is quite possible. Obviously there are other factors that could take it much higher.
The new C.E.O. was a director at the U.S.Mint prior to joining the company.
