Added: Globex Mining Enterprises Inc

Analysis  
Updated: Impact Silver Corp
Impact Silver Corp is a small producer (3 underground mines at 140 gpt). Many investors are Impact Silver fans. I'm not because of their low resources (about 10 million oz) and small production (less than 1 million oz). I see them as a 3 bagger going...  more

Analysis  
Updated: Lara Exploration Ltd
Lara Exploration is a very good project generator. The only problem with this stock is that it is not precious metals focused. However, with the high price of gold, I would expect this company to focus more on gold. This company has shown the ability to...  more

Analysis

Analysis  
Updated: Santa Fe Gold Corp.
Santa Fe Gold is a small producer in New Mexico. They have a FD market cap of only $17 million, which is cheap for their potential. They are a high risk / high return stock. They could be 25 bagger or a wash out. I want to like this stock, but there are...  more

Analysis  
Updated: Salazar Resources Ltd
Salazar Resources has a late stage project (El Domo deposit on their large Curipampa property). If El Domo (600,000 oz at 2.8 gpt) was not in Ecuador, I would like this stock. Three countries I am avoiding are: Venezuela, Bolivia, and Ecuador....  more

Gold Demand / Gold Prices
I read an article on the internet today, where the author said that Chinese gold demand will be the driver for gold prices. I disagree. China demand is not going anywhere. They are importing boatloads and planeloads every month, and that will continue for the rest of the decade. The key to gold prices are the US economy and the 10 year US Treasury interest rate. As long as we continue to have low interest rates and steady growth (any growth will do) in the US economy, then gold will...  more

Analysis  
Updated: Otis Gold Corp
Otis Gold has huge upside potential, but there is significant risk. They have a FD market cap of only $2.5 million, yet their Kilgore project in Idaho (800,000 oz at .5 gpt) is heading toward production in 2018. Kilgore looks pretty solid. The...  more

Analysis  
Updated: Randgold Resources Ltd.
Randgold Resources is a major based in Africa. Most of the value is built into the stock price. This stock will likely double, but it will have trouble outperforming the price of gold by much of a margin. Their future reserves are valued at $232, even...  more

Analysis  
Updated: Millrock Resources Inc.

Analysis

Analysis  
Updated: Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd

Analysis  
Updated: Rusoro Mining Ltd.
Rusoro Mining had their large gold mine (17 million oz) in Venezuela nationalized in 2012. It looks dire. Their stock price is down to .0001 cents. That is 4 decimal places. It is basically worthless. They have a claim for $3 billion in an international...  more
