Companies on our shortlist pushing their flagships further along the curve – Defense (DEFN.V), Harfang (HAR.V), Minnova (MCI.V), Prime (PRYM.V) Skeena (SKE.T), and Strategic (SMD.V)

It seems we’ve entered yet another rout in the metals and mining stocks with several of the companies we follow closely getting sold off, testing their recent lows. It’s frustrating. One would think that with events over the past two weeks, gold would be ripping higher, tagging all-time historical highs. There’s been a lot of […]

The 1850 front line – updating Cartier (ECR.V), Forum (FMC.V), Pure Gold (PGM.V), Skeena (SKE.T), Harfang (HAR.V), and HighGold (HIGH.V)

$1,850 (blue line, chart below) is turning into a front line in the brawl between gold bulls and bears. After breaking through this key support level last week, the snap-back from the $1,767 low, anchored by a surfeit of compelling fundamentals, coincided with the U.S Dollar printing 2.5 year lows. Short term, the market is […]

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 […]

Cos on the Highballer shortlist pushing their flagship assets further along the curve – Harfang (HAR.V), Skeena (SKE.T), White Gold (WGO.V), and Minnova (MCI.V)

Several companies on the Highballer shortlist have been generating significant assay-related newsflow over the past week or so. Let’s get right to it. First, I should mention that I continue scouring the junior ExploreCo landscape for companies with the right combination of assets, jurisdiction, and of course…management. But it’s not an easy task—I’m not a […]

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, […]

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 […]

The highlight (stepout) interval from this round of assays is right in the (Oct. 15th) headline… HighGold Drills 11.5 g/t Gold over 20.1 […]

This is a brief mid-week report updating several of the Cos on our shortlist making news today (Sep. 9th).
