Gold & Silver Discovery Stocks

Tracking the big gold and silver junior exploration drill hole and discovery stories, "One big anomaly" as John Kaiser might put it: latest at the top of the page.

Charts with the stories. Stock list to develop at the bottom of the page - watch market cap, elephants find it harder to gallop. At $10-20m market cap stock prices can move fast, at $200m the discovery needs to be very significant.
Look at the market caps of established developers with NI 43-101 compliant resources to recognise speculative excess for what it is while it lasts and remember it takes a lot more than one good hole to make a deposit and a whole lot more still to make a mine.

The discovery headlines link to the TMX website where you should be able to click on details for the company and latest news.
Find the Story at Company websites, linked on company names, the jabber at Stockhouse.
Or trade the charts.

Focus here is on big discovery holes.
Use Brent Cook's drill interval calculator (right side bar) to assess dependency on high grade intervals over the hole length. Deeper holes need to he higher grade. Near surface, long intervals can make economic mines at much lower grades.

These are the wild rides, the stocks everyone wants, until they don't or there is a disappointing hole.
Many speculators will take a view to sell the news unloading to new investors. Often fundraisings are made on the good news with high levels of promotion to maximise price, afterwards some investors will keep warrants but sell stock after hold periods.
Beware - you might want to take a long term view, others won't.
Go do the due diligence to decide if the potential is there to buy pullbacks to get in. The great discoveries may not pull back quickly, you may want to buy partial % positions of your target holding.
The best discoveries will grow for quite some time. Decide your trading strategy, buy dips, sell greed but don't sell the great discoveries too soon..... tough game...!

To try and identify these before discovery is harder but look around the Regional Discovery, Good People and other pages.

  2. I noticed thas silver ETF,S are down about the same amount as junior gold ming ETF,s. Just was wondering why.

  3. The dollar index is dropping due to ongoing trade talks between U.S-China, which in turn, is supporting the gold prices. The various other factors extending support to the gold and silver prices are global financial market instability, which is curbing the risk appetite of the market participants due to high volatility in the global financial assets and structural economic reforms.
