2017 gold deposits boasting the highest grade drill intersects

By analyst By Vladimir Basov Story developed using data from Mining Intelligence. Learn more and schedule a demo. Drill results are important indicators not only for mining and exploration companies, but nearly all stakeholders involved, including existing shareholders and potential investors. While high-grade drill intersects are generally exciting and promising news, a conservative and very rigorous approach is recommended when a non-technical person is trying to understand the results of a drilling campaign. It is not uncommon to see a press release where a company proudly claims that a “significant” interval has been recently intersected and that contains, for example, a 5,000 g/t gold grade. Such news can rapidly increase a company’s stock price, but is grade alone the crucial factor in a drill results’ interpretation? Actually, these super-high anomalous grades are often associated with very narrow drill intervals, which may be caused by a nugget effect. These high grades … Continue reading

Forward Guidance: Alexander Green on Why You Should Own Preferred Shares

By Samuel Taube Transcript: Samuel Taube: Joining us by phone is Alexander Green, the Chief Investment Strategist of The Oxford Club. And today, we’re talking about the unique assets known as preferred shares. Alex, thanks for joining us again. Alexander Green: Thanks for having me, Sam. ST: From what I understand, preferred shares aren’t exactly like a regular stock. They’re not exactly like a bond. What are they? AG: Technically, they’re called hybrid securities. That means they have qualities of both stocks and bonds. For instance, they don’t have voting rights like a stock, but yet you do have an actual equity stake in the company. And dividends are prioritized to be paid to preferred shareholders before common shareholders. That’s how it gets the “preferred” label. Also, in the unlikely event of a corporate liquidation, preferred shareholders stand in line ahead of holders of common stock. So they have qualities … Continue reading

Is a New Gold Bull Market on the Horizon?

Source: Clive Maund for Streetwise Reports 02/18/2018 A read of the gold charts is indicating that a breakout and new bull market are simply a matter of time, says technical analyst Clive Maund. Gold continues to prepare to break out of its giant Head-and-Shoulders bottom pattern. As we can see on its 8-year chart below, this base pattern has been developing for getting on for five years now, so it has major implications. Upside volume has been building for a long time, driving volume indicators higher, a sign that a breakout and new bull market are simply a matter of time, and not much at that now. There has been much grumbling and muttering within the gold community about how “The Cartel” and the Comex etc are holding the gold price in restraint by means of naked short selling, and hitting the market with supply when trading is thin during … Continue reading

Silver is ‘Off the Radar’ But Shouldn’t Be

Source: Clive Maund for Streetwise Reports 02/18/2018 Silver has zero appeal for momentum traders now, but technical analyst Clive Maund believes that is going to change. Silver is completely “off the radar” for most investors right now, which is just the way we like it when we are buying, however, as we will see, there are good reasons to believe that this will not be the case for much longer. On its latest 8-year chart we can see why silver has zero appeal for momentum traders now—it ain’t goin’ nowhere, or so it would seem, if you project past performance into the future, but as we have repeatedly observed in recent months, it is marking out a giant Head-and-Shoulders bottom, which is quite heavily disguised compared to the concurrent flat topped H&S bottom forming in gold, because it is downsloping. A key bullish point to observe on this chart is … Continue reading

Battery-technology metals to leave gold, silver in the dust: readers

By analyst By Michael Allan McCrae A whopping two-thirds of MINING.com readers say battery-technology metals will perform better than precious or base metals in 2018. The survey, which ran last month ahead of the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference 2018, asked our readers how the materials needed to make batteries for the coming electrical vehicle revolution will fare over the coming years. Key findings were the following: Two-thirds of respondents said battery-technology metals will out-perform base metals and precious metals. Another two-thirds said battery-technology metals have NOT been over-hyped. Fifty percent of respondents said 2025 is the year when battery-technology metal demand really hit the market. In regards to investing in the sector, 41% prefer to pick juniors. Another third are putting money into producers. Our of the entire battery-material space, readers said lithium and cobalt will be at the head of the pack. At the back of the pack are … Continue reading

What the Market Sell-Off and Thunder Mountain Have in Common

By Marc Lichtenfeld The scariest roller coaster I’ve ever ridden was the Monster Mouse at Rye Playland in New York. What made the Monster Mouse terrifying wasn’t the hills. In fact, the drops weren’t steep at all. The reason your heart pounded was because the ride was so rickety. It was built in 1966 but looked and felt as if it were from 1866. You’d swear the entire structure shifted every time you took a turn. It felt as if the whole thing was about to come tumbling down. When I go on a roller coaster at Disney or Universal, though the plunges are deep and the rides are moving at breakneck speeds, I don’t find them scary at all. They have solid, long-term safety records and state-of-the-art technology. It’s a good analogy for the market right now. Though we had some drastic plunges last week, the foundation of the … Continue reading

Weekend Show – Sat 17 Feb, 2018

By Cory Market Volatility, PMs Recent Bounce, And A Special Novo Update Download audio file (0217-Full-Weekend-Show.mp3) Volatility continues in the US markets with the S&P up over 4% this week. It was not a smooth ride however. The base metals have rebounded nicely and precious metals, after a potentially scary breakdown last Friday, rebounded nicely this week back to the higher part of their range. We discuss all those topics this week plus a special look at the downfalls in resource estimates and an extra long segment with Novo’s Quinton Hennigh answering all of our questions. I want to thank everyone for listening in to this week’s weekend show and to all of you who are tuning in during the week!
