New Opportunities Arising From The Trend Away From The Traditional Junior Mining Financing

Among the biggest trends we saw with the Canadian-listed junior mining companies in 2018 was the shift away from the more traditional brokerage led retail private placement financings towards the more concentrated industry and/or strategic partner financings.
From Goldcorp to Osisko Gold Royalties and from Resource Capital Funds to Orion Mine Finance, we saw industry majors and strategic partner groups pour billions of dollars into a handful of chosen junior mining companies.
Why it's Important: Simply, because it offers opportunities. I will talk about what typically happens to the share price of a junior miner post financing by an industry or strategic partner vs what typically happens to the juniors’ share price from its prior financing to the point where an industry or strategic partner makes its investment. In short, you want to own the junior miner before the industry or strategic partner crashes the party.
Don’t Miss Out: Come hear me talk at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference where I will discuss which companies I think have the potential to attract a huge infusion of cash from an industry or strategic partner. Better yet, some of the companies I discuss may eventually become outright acquisition targets.
