Defense Metals (DEFN.V) continues to de-risk its high-grade REE deposit in mining-friendly B.C. PLUS a Q & A with CEO Craig Taylor

Rare Earth Elements (REEs) are a major driver in the green-ride (EV) revolution. Electric motors, generators, catalytic converters, component sensors, LCD screens… REEs can even be found in the powder used to polish the windshields and mirrors. Hailed as the “vitamins of chemistry”, REEs exhibit a broad range of electronic, optical, and magnetic properties. They’re […]

Gold, Bonds, and companies on our list making headlines – Pure Gold (PGM.V), Defense (DEFN.V), HighGold (HIGH.V), Cartier (ECR.V), Banyan (BYN.V), Forum (FMC.V), and Prime (PRYM.V)

Gold was dealt What For last week, taking out major support, trading at levels not seen in over eight months. The culprit of this recent carnage was a major sell-off in bonds pushing the yield on the US 10-year note to 1.5% (yields were a mere 0.5% only six months back). Though current yields represent […]

A Highballer roundup – Forum (FMC.V), Defense (DEFN.V), Harfang (HAR.V), Highgold (HIGH.V), Skeena (SKE.T) and Pure Gold (PGM.V)

The launch of Highballer back in early 2020 sprung from the belief that we’re in the early stages of a bull market in precious metals, base metals, battery metals, and all things mining—a bull run that will prove epic in scale. I’ve seen this movie before. It has a riveting plot. Bolstering that belief, central […]

The stock has never traded higher… The Company’s flagship project—Los Reyes—captures 6,300 hectares of highly prospective terra firma in mining-friendly Sinaloa, Mexico. I had the pleasure of catching up with Andrew Bowering, Prime’s Executive […]

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 […]
