Fiore Gold Advances Pan Mine Quickly Into Stable Planned Production; Significant Cash Flow Awaits

Pan Mine, Nevada

1. Introduction

Fiore Gold (F.V) has progressed its Pan Mine in Nevada, US in a very steady fashion, on time and on budget. Exploration for additional resources (and hopefully years of mine life as well) has been successful so far, and a new COO has been hired. Recently, the latest financials regarding the first quarter of the new year were released, which are always an interesting reference of the state of a company, especially with producers. Therefore it was time to have a closer look at Fiore Gold, Frank Giustra's baby.  Besides an update on proceedings, the other purpose of this article will be the outlining of future cash flow and valuation potential, as I view Fiore Gold as misunderstood by the markets at the moment.

Drilling At Zone 3 Returns 5m @ 20% Zinc; Tinka Resources Also Looking For The Source Of Ayawilca

1. Introduction

Slowly but surely and piece by piece, Tinka Resources (TK.V, TKRFF.US) is unraveling the complex puzzle which is the Ayawilca mineralization. As they hit more mineralization at Zone 3, for example best intercept 5m @20%Zn in hole A18-111, and polymetallic mineralization in adjacent hole A18-109, drilled from the same rig location, management seems more and more convinced that the source of all mineralization might be located below or east of Zone 3. This will have implications for the drill strategy to follow, and each new drill result will help determining the geological concept. The latest drill results, coming from various locations at Ayawilca, and possible consequences for tonnage will be discussed, as well as the geological concept.

Genesis Metals Continues To Prove Up Chevrier Mineralization; Further Drilling About To Start

Chevrier Gold project; core shack Main Zone

After having completed a 10,150m 58 hole drill program on the Main Zone, plus 25 new trenches and re-sampling of 11 historic cores, it seems that Genesis Metals is well on its way to get more insight in the complex geology of Chevrier, therefore an update is warranted. Follow up drilling on a new Main Zone extension is about to commence in this spring, and a maiden resource estimate is scheduled for Q3, 2018. On top of that, the company is contemplating drilling other geological targets as well, as the property has abundant exploration potential.

A Critical Q & A With MGX Minerals CEO Jared Lazerson

Driftwood Creek; pilot plant

MGX Minerals (XMG.CSE) is a rare breed of junior, as it has a staggering 22 ongoing projects, it is CSE listed, works on revolutionairy "petrolithium"  and zinc air fuel cell tech, has booked no tangible, independently verifiable results yet, but still manages to raise tens of millions of dollars like it's nothing, and keeps producing a true avalanche of news releases because of these 22 projects. When talking to management, there are always plans for even more projects they might go after. Too much? One might think so as progress is slower than projected on several fronts and results are few and far in between, while in the mean time new projects are being added, seemingly creating everchanging dynamics in a vibrant pool of increasing activity as far as focus and strategy is concerned.

Kutcho Copper: A New And Very Robust Base Metal Developer

Kutcho project

1. Introduction

Very rarely I come across a junior that simply seems to tick almost all boxes, and it looks like new sponsor Kutcho Copper (KC.V) is doing just that. From project profitability to management, from financials to geology, from location to metal prices, it comes across as a genuine display of quality and excellence. CEO Vince Sorace certainly made the most of Capstone Mining's strategy change a few years ago not to develop relatively smaller, non-core assets, and now looking to divest assets to clean up their troubled balance sheet.

1. Introduction

Every now and then certain junior mining companies succeed in consolidating a large group of claims or even multiple projects on very favorable terms, often creating very interesting continuous land packages with ongoing areas of exploration potential, greenfield and/or brownfield. This kind of transactions are usually out of the realm of larger, well known parties, as prices shoot up the second their involvement becomes apparent.

Tinka Resources: Ayawilca Resource Update Confirms Expectations; Upcoming PEA Could Surprise Markets

1. Introduction

It is a busy and exciting time for top zinc junior Tinka Resources. Drill results are rolling in all year now, Tinka is the talk of the town at many conferences, the team got a much deserved accolade by receiving the Mining Journal "Explorer of the year 2017" award, and the company got listed on the Peruvian stock exchange (Lima Stock Exchange or BVL). I liked this move, as it made the company less dependent on for example Canadian brokers/banks to raise money in the future.

Rise Gold: A Tiny Junior Targeting 1-3Moz High Grade Gold, Left Behind In Past-Producing Idaho-Maryland Mine

Former Idaho-Maryland Mine, Nevada County, California

1. Introduction

Sometimes I come across mining stories that read like an old fashioned treasure hunt of sorts. Rise Gold (RISE:CSE, RYES:OTC), a small junior headquartered in Vancouver, falls neatly into this category in my view. CEO Ben Mossman found the past-producing high grade Idaho-Maryland gold mine after intensely searching the internet for about 5 months, scanning eligible projects up for sale, historic databases and other leads. When he started doing his due diligence, which meant sifting through a basement full of old documents, it soon dawned on him that this project could host huge exploration potential, besides the considerable historic (2002) high grade estimate of 0.4Moz @ 9.1g/t Au M&I and 0.9Moz @12.7g/t Au Inf, as the Idaho-Maryland had to halt production in 1954 when it was nowhere near depletion.
