Companies on the Highballer shortlist pushing forward as the metal consolidates – Banyan (BYN.V), HighGold (HIGH.V), Cartier (ECR.V), Harfang (HAR.V), and Defense (DEFN.V)

Everything in the junior exploration arena, with few exceptions, has taken it on the chin in recent weeks. High-quality gold and silver stocks have been tossed with little regard for their underlying fundamental value. To paraphrase my thinking in a recent Equity Guru article… If your convictions regarding the precious metals are weak, you’ve likely […]

Cartier Resources (ECR.V) tags high-grade gold at Chimo – takes aim at Benoist and Fenton projects with aggressive exploration plans

Last week, one of Highballer’s top three picks for 2020—Coral Gold (CLH.V)—was the subject of a friendly takeover that pushed its share price to multi-year highs. Today, another stock on our top three list—Cartier Resources (ECR.V)—tagged multi-year highs. It’s one of my favorite charts in the junior exploration arena, a chart characterized by an orderly […]

A new addition to the Highballer shortlist—Harfang Exploration (HAR.V) – Also BYN.V, DEFN.V, ECR.V, MCI.V, PGM.V, SKE.T

I apologize for the lag between articles. I’ve been scouring the junior landscape in search of a new entry, a new addition for the Highballer shortlist portfolio—a list that currently reads eleven. I’m reviewing several potential candidates. All strike me as intriguing speculations. All boast the fundamentals I require in a Junior ExploreCo: solid management, […]

Cartier (ECR.V) looks to monetize flagship gold asset, sets stage for aggressive drilling campaign at Benoist project

Here’s the thing… every day that a gold miner digs ore out of the ground—every day the company is in business—they reduce their metal inventory. For companies that produce millions of ounces of gold annually, adding to reserves—replacing these ounces—requires a steady stream of new discoveries. What investors new to this arena may not realize […]

Banyan (BYN.V) to drill AurMac, Cartier (ECR.V) tags more high-grade Au, Pure Gold (PGM.V) launches 30k meter drilling campaign, Strategic (SMD.V) goes hard at Mt. Hinton

Gold continues to consolidate gains registered after a sharp push higher from its March 16 ‘crash day’ lows. We’re going into our third month of sideways chop. No one knows for sure how this sideways channel will resolve itself, but without a doubt, if (when) gold successfully challenges $1,800 again, it’ll be watched by a […]

Banyan (BYN.V) drops a 43-101, White Gold (WGO.V) tables 2020 exp plans, Pure Gold (PGM.V) bags a billionaire, Cartier (ECR.V) tags high-grade Au

Is it too early to declare Game-On for the junior exploration arena? The recent across-the-board price action looks and feels right. In many cases, good news is greeted with positive market depth. And the market appears to have more than lint lining its pockets. Earlier last week I came across a chart supporting the notion […]

Gold gets slammed, bargains emerge – HighGold (HIGH.V), Forum (FMC.V), Strategic (SMD.V), Kuya (KUYA.C), Nomad (NSR.T), and Skeena (SKE.T)

Gold is currently testing support at $1,800 (lower blue line) after crashing through support at $1,850. Current prices represent multi-month lows. If $1,800 doesn’t hold (that’s where the 200 SMA is at), $1,750 might be in the cards. Of course, this sudden price weakness might be a big-ass Bear Trap. If so, the metal should […]

Forum tees up Cu targets at Janice Lake, Skeena raises $40M, Cartier sets sights on high-grade Benoist project, Coral approves TO arrangement with Nomad, Pure Gold on the cusp of 1st gold pour, Banyan drops Powerline zone assays

The pace of exploration can test one’s patience. “Why can’t they just mobilize a damn rig to the property already?” is a question I get a lot. Companies helmed by disciplined geo-types will often pull out all the stops to increase the odds of discovery success. Prospective ground is scoured by map, by air… on […]
