Gold Found Here


Most junior mining companies in the world are located in Canada. In fact some of the largest miners are Canadian companies. Companies like Barrick Gold, Teck, Eldorado, which are known the world over got started right here in Canada. One of the reasons is because Canada itself is the largest country in the world by land mass and is stuffed full of resources. From coast to coast you will find resources play a big roll in the country. Whether it be mining and minerals, oil and gas, pulp and timber, Canada has it all.

So it should come as no surprise that even though we find a lot of these small companies scattered around the world looking for the next big deposit, that some of these companies have decided to stay right here in Canada and explore and develope. A lot of these companies however have become forgotten over the past few years as the price of gold, silver and other metals have gone down. Lack of funding equals less exploration which in turn equals less interest.

However since the start of the year there seems to be a renewed interest in the metals and that includes a lot of the juniors mining stocks. While the DJIA has lost about 6% and most other stock exchanges are the same, gold is up over 7% YTD and we are just through the first month of the year. Looking at these figures we see a definate trend of new money going into junior mining stocks. There are lot of these companies that are trading for 1 and 2 cents but have values double, triple or even quadruple that just in cash values alone. Soem of these stocks have been totally inactive for months if not years are starting to get active. Trading volumes are increasing and trading volumes are responding to news whereas a year or so ago even the best of news would only bring a yawn.

An example would be the news that came out yesterday for New Carolin Gold Corp. LAD where the comany is having their terms for a 100% ownership of the Ladner Gold project ammended. This may not seem like big news on the surface but read between the lines and you will see that the company will own 100% of the rights to 144 sq km of prime gold property just outside of Vancouver BC. That news sent the stock almost back to it's 52 week high with close to 6 million shares trading hands.

Then today more news came out stating: Further to the press release on the morning of Feb. 3, 2016, New Carolin Gold Corp. will increase its financing as follows: The company will cap this financing with the issuance of up to 26.25 million units in its capital stock for gross proceeds and consideration of up to $1,312,500 in a combination of flow-through units and non-flow-through units, a drilling services contract, and a settlement of $225,000 related to an unpaid drill program carried out in 2012.

No news that I can find but for some reason Decade Resources DEC was very active today also. Stock price up a full cent to 2.5 cents. Decade has a work program going on in the Stewart Bc area. There are rumors of good assays and news but we shall see how thing unfold with this small Canadian player.

For those of us who like to trade out these penny mining stocks, who knows, maybe it's starting to be happy day are here again.

Exploring For Gold In Nevada

Jan. 19.16

Nevada has long been known as a pro mining state. Going back into the 1800's Nevada was the place to be. Known today as the silver state, Nevada had is share of booms and busts. Although it was silver that was mined mostly back then during it's wild west days, there was gold being mined also. Nevada is home to the Carlin Trend, North America's most prolific gold-producing area and the second-largest known gold resource in the world. Numerous sources estimate the amount of gold contained in the trend may contain up to 180 million ounces of gold. It's in this resource that we are going to take a look at a junior miner that is actively working today to get it's share of theat 180 million ounces.

Gold Standard Ventures GSV is an advanced stage gold exploration company focused on a district scale discovery on it's Railroad-Pinion gold project in Nevada's Carlin Trend. The Project is located at the southeast end of the Carlin Trend, a northwest alignment of sedimentary rock hosted gold deposits that hosts some of the world's largest gold mines. More than 40 separate gold deposits have been delineated along the Carlin Trend since the 1960's and those estimates of reserves are around 100 million ounces.

The company's main property of interest is called the Railroad-Pinion Gold Project. The 100% owned and controlled project, covers approximately 115 km2 (45 miles2) including the recent Pinion deposit acquisition which is located in North Central Nevada. The project property is located right close to Newmont's Rain and Emigrant mines, and is 47 kilometers southwest of Elko. Resources at Pinion are 423k ounces indicated + 1,022k ounces inferred while at Dark Star there is 375k ounces inferred.

Also there is another grouping of claims called North Bullion. This deposit was the first significant gold discovery made by the company and there is also the Bald Mountain target which is an additional new oxide-gold discovery situated near the Bullion Intrusion which is in Central Railroad.

In the companies last news release in November they published drill results that confirm a discovery of a substantial new, higher grade oxide gold zone north of the Dark Star Deposit which is also part of the Railroad - Pinion project. Results from a a reverse-circulation (RC) hole drilled 515m north of the Dark Star maiden resource, returned an oxidized zone of 157.0 meters of 1.51 grams gold per tonne (g Au/t) among multiple, significant intercepts containing gold values above the cut-off grade of 0.14 g Au/t established by APEX Geoscience Ltd.

As far as stock performance goes, Gold Standard is by far out performing most mining stocks at this time. While most stocks remain mired in all time lows, the stock price here has done quite well. There is 187 million shares out there with 50% being held by institutions. Insiders hold another 13%.

In other news, we hope to be hearing some news very shortly from New Carolin Gold Corp. LAD in regards to further developments with the Ladner Gold Project which has been discussed about lately right here.

New Year. New Stock Picks

Jan. 5.16

First off, happy new year to everyone. I always like to make new years resolutions even if I never follow through with them. It is a way of giving me some kind of goal to look forward to or at least try. One of the goals which of course happens every year is trying to find the next 10 bagger in stocks. Scanning over all the available information at the time and trying to look ahead through the year of all the things that could happen, then applying that information to a handful of stocks and see where it ends up a year later.

I seem to gravitate towards mining stocks which of course has proven to be not as profitable as say some of the health stocks or tech stocks. Being a contrarian type of investor I take all the worlds affairs and apply that into my theories also. With so much doom and gloom since 2008 credit crisis one would have thought that gold and gold stock stocks would have been a very profitable venture. However this has no been the case. Mining stocks for the past few years have been some the worst performing stocks right along side oil and oil service stocks.

Being a gold bug, my thinking for this year is still geared towards mining stocks and more specifically gold stocks. With all commodities being down globally, news that things are not so rosy in China, it's only a matter of time that the credit system that runs the world will experience a hick-up of some kind and there could very well be hick-ups tthat follow such as a run on the banks or else a loss of faith in the present money system. There has been tons of news letter writers and articles pointing to this fact even though nothing to date has happened. Governments all over the world seem to keep everything running smoothly or at least they do a good job to make it look that way.

Anyways, enough of that and on to my stock pick of the year. My first stock for this year is the stock that has been featured on the website here. New Carolin Gold Corp. LAD. The reasons why I am picking this as what I hope to be a 10 bagger for the year is quite simple. The stock has 80 million shares O/S and is priced today at 5 cents. The company has a gold property that is about 2 hour drive from Vancouver, and is only a few miles off a paved highway.

There is an existing mill and crusher along with power on this property. The property also has 5 older mines that all produced gold at one time. Back in the 1980's the company that held this same ground had a stock price of $60. Not 60 cents, 60 dollars. Today like I said the stock price is 5 cents so for this play to get noticed and it is getting noticed by some of the bigger names in the business, I see this play as being able to hit 50 cents within a years time.

It won't take much these days to get the price of gold back up a few hundred bucks an ounce and with everything else already topped out price wise, a lot of that money will definately be looking a undervalued plays and equities. For me, New Carolin Gold fits the bill. You can read my feature write up that was done on the site right here. There is also a news wire that just came out today about New Carolin Gold and it features both Rick Mills comments and Jay Taylor. Both of these guys are very well known in mining circles and are both savvy investors who are quite sharp on picking stocks that offer that winning combination. So thats another reason why I'm picking New Carolin Gold for this year.

Year End Wrap Up

Dec. 23.15

This will be my last write up for the year here. Being as I like to look for those undervalued juniors that will give me the best return for dollar invested, I would like to take a quick look at some of the junior miners that we talked about and see how they have performed throughout the year. Some of them have done quite well as you will see, while others have not.

Back in February we talked about Peregrine Diamonds Ltd. PGD. At that time of writing the stock was at 19 cents. By the end of april the stock hit a high of 38 cents. That was a 100% return. Today however the stock is just 14 cents.

In March we took a look at Western Lithium WLC. The stock had just spiked on news and a favourable outlook. The stock price was 70 cents. Today the stock price has settled out around the 30 cent mark although it did flirt with the $1 mark a couple of different times throught out the year.

In May we looked at Sabina Gold & Silver SBB which was 41 cents at the time. Today the stock price is 77 cents.

We also tok at look at Bit Gold XAU in September. Bit Gold or Gold Money is a gold trading platform where transactions are performed using real gold bullion. At the time of writing the stock price was $4.77. Today the stock has been pushed down somewhat to $3.90.

In May we looked at Canadian Zinc CZN. The stock price was 19 cents. Throught out the summer the stock fell all the way down to 6 cents. Today the stock has rebounded back to the 12 cent mark. This is still a stock to watch as it is followed by several analysts and news letter writers.

Looking forward into the new year I am looking very keen on the lastest junior we have here. That is New Carolin Gold Corp. LAD with their Ladner Gold Project. With a stock price of only 4 cents this is just to undervalued to ignore. When you look at what the company has going for it, it makes for one of those stocks to watch. In my own research I was watching Jay Taylor talk about this play and back in 1982 the company that held this property saw it's share price at $60 a share. Just too many positives for this junior for me to ignore. I have that video on the website and you can view that video here.

In closing I would like to wish everyone the best of the season and the very best in the coming new year.

Evaluating A Junior. The More Pluses, The Better

Dec. 7.15

It doesn't take a brain surgeon to know that mining and metals markets have been in a funk for the last 3-4 years. Ever since gold topped out it's been pretty much a downhill slide. As this year comes to an end one can see from various charts that the bulk of active players in the gold mining plays have been stagnant and trading has been mostly sideways with low trading volumes. This sideways trading for the most part has seen stock prices at the yearly lows also.

Worldwide today here are over 2,000 listed junior mining companies so if you are wanting to invest in any of these companies you want to find ones that have a lot of pluses going for it. The more plus or postives, the better. Reason being is a lot of these comapnies have nothing but a few mineral claims scattered about and are probably not even worth the 1 cent price they are trading at. There are other juniors that have reinvented themselves as tech companies, biotech or became pot growing companies. However, there are some junior miners out there are staying in the mining and exploration game because they have good solid projects on the go that are viable and are still very much active in building up a shareholder value along with a community value. Today we are going to take a look at one company that has the goods, the management to make things happen and has support from local communities and governments.

New Carolin Gold Corp. LAD is the company we are going to look at today. New Carolin Gold is a Vancouver BC based company that is building the Ladner Gold Project. This project has a lot of pluses going for it at the moment and really deserves some attention.

First plus: First off is the location of the project. The Ladner Gold project is located in the Coquihalla Gold Belt which is about 150KM from Vancouver BC. The origianl Carolin Mine is located just 6 KM from the Coquihalla Highway or about 18 KM from the town of Hope BC.

Second plus: A lot of the infrastructure from when the original Carolin Mine was in operation is still there. There is a ball mill, rod mill, regrind mill, coarse ore bin, and an underground crusher.

Third plus: With two completed NI 43-101 gold resource estimate studies on both the Carolin and McMaster Zone they have discovered an Inferred Mineral Resource estimate is 607,000 oz gold at the Carolin and an Inferred Mineral Resource estimate of 79,540 oz gold at the McMaster zone.

Fourth plus: Permits in place. Permits for both underground and surface. Current water license is also in place.

Fifth plus: The Ladner Gold project comes with not only the original Carolin Mine but there are two other mines on the 144 square KM of property. There is the Emanciaption Mine and the Pipestem Mine which are both past producers.

From a historical point, the property has been producing gold since 1890 and there are numerous high-grade artisan workings along the fault line that runs the length of the 28 km-long property, mostly they were chasing very high-grade surface showings, some up to 120 - 130 oz/tonne. Meaningful exploration and development of the property started in 1975 with a mining company that drilled out the Carolin Ladner Gold Project and put it into production in 1982 and unfortunately gold prices were uncooperative; when they drilled they were at near-$800/oz gold and when they got the mine into production gold was at $400/oz

Another huge plus with this project is the tailings ponds. Not only are they in place and get inspected every year by an engineering firm, but the tailings are loaded with traces of gold. How much gold? Well, 69 holes were drilled into 60% of the tailings establishing a resource of 404,000 tonnes which indicated a grading of 1.83 g/t +/- 24,000 contained oz gold and 84,400 tonnes Inferred grading 1.85 g/t +/-5,000 oz gold. So you could logically calculate that there is probably give or take 40,000 ounces of gold in the tailings pond alone since only 60% of the area was drilled.

At present the company has 75 million shares. This translates to a market cap of 3.7 million. The 52 week trading range for the stock has been a low of 2 cents and a high of 8 cents. From an investor point of view on this company, it just so happens that world renown mining and metals analyst, Jay Taylor is following this company as well. His thoughts on New Carolin Gold? "New Carolin presents exceptional risk/reward at its Ladner Gold Project, 2 hours East of Vancouver, BC, as it advances to take historic resource compliant, prove major new gold zone and world class multi-million ounce potential."

I am going to continue following the progress of this company as there should be news in the very near future. You can read up on a lot more by going to their website here.
