Commodities push higher in the wake of Putin’s war – updating Goldseek (GSK.C), Forum (FMC.V), Teuton (TUO.V), and Defense (DEFN.V)

Yesterday’s breakout in the precious metal could set the stage for a massive run in the medium to long term as a de-escalation in Putin’s military aggression against his sovereign (peaceful) neighbor appears highly unlikely. If you were to quiz the likes of Pierre Lassonde, this currency of last resort has the potential to run […]

A Highballer update featuring Banyan (BYN.V), Defense (DEFN.V), Forum (FMC.V), Goldseek (GSK.C), HighGold (HIGH.V), and Prime (PRYM.V)

The price strength in precious metals continues with gold closing out last week’s session at the highest level in some eight months. A flight to safety—mounting tensions along the Russia-Ukraine border and recession fears—underpin this recent price strength. I follow a good number of companies in the junior space, some of which have been presented […]

Forum Energy Metals (FMC.V) secures a strategic acquisition on trend with Orano’s 133M lb Kiggavik Uranium Deposit, Nunavut

Last week, Forum announced a new acquisition in the Thelon Basin, a vastly underexplored region in Nunavut, Canada. Management’s expectations are high for this one. Outside Saskatchewan’s prolific Athabasca Basin several hundred kilometers to the south, the Thelon Basin is the most prospective region in the world for the discovery of new high-grade unconformity-style uranium […]

Forum Energy Metals (FMC.V) options Highrock Uranium Project in the prolific Athabasca Basin

Uranium stocks have pulled out of their corrective tailspin and generated some impressive price trajectory in recent sessions. News out of Kazakhstan is part of the reason why. Kazakhstan unrest: Government calls for Russian help Kazakhstan produced 41% of the world’s uranium supply in 2020. Any supply interruptions will have negative implications for an already […]

Defense (DEFN.V) tables a PEA, Goldseek (GSK.C) drops final Beschefer assays, Harfang (HAR.V) delivers Serpent results, Forum (FMC.V) plots a course for 2022

The past two weeks have been particularly brutal for investors in the junior exploration arena. High-quality stocks are being tossed with little regard for their underlying intrinsic value. At this conjuncture, year-end tax-loss selling season looms large—it seems more outrageous this year than last. If you correctly predicted this rout, and have dry powder, some […]

A Highballer roundup featuring Forum (FMC.V), HighGold (HIGH.V), Prime (PRYM.V), Skyharbour (SYH.V), Sokoman (SIC.V), and Defense (DEFN.V)

As the reality that inflation is not as “transitory” as the Fed would have us believe kicks in—though chairman Powell now concedes that it will likely be more “persistent” than previously thought—some are calling for violence in the gold arena. An October 22nd Bloomberg headline… Gold’s Inflation-Haven Appeal Means ‘Violent’ Run-Up May Be Ahead We’ve […]

A Highballer roundup featuring Banyan (BYN.V), HighGold (HIGH.V), Prime (PRYM.V), Defense (DEFN.V), Forum (FMC.V), and Skyharbour (SYH.V)—and a hurried heads-up on Sokoman (SIC.V)

We’re a few hours away from the conclusion of a two-day Fed meeting. Better than expected retail sales last week (the retail sector currently accounts for two-thirds of the GDP in the U.S.) might’ve turned the Fed hawkish. We’ll find out when Chairman Powell steps up to the mic. Talk of tapering its $120 billion-a-month […]

Forum Energy Metals (FMC.V) drills wholly-owned Love Lake project in mining-friendly Saskatchewan

I’m looking to shake things up a bit here at Highballer. I’ve been thinking long and hard and I’ve decided to cover certain highly speculative companies in the pre-discovery phase of their cycles, and those following up on new discoveries with aggressive drill campaigns. The goal is to deliver a more dynamic, broad-ranging read (I […]
