This is really a new story. It has been around for a long time, but in terms of developing its high-grade, underground operation, which is deeper than the original, it has rejuvenated the stock. It is now a matter of execution and getting the company to optimal production and generating positive free cash flow. He is very confident in management. Feels the valuation still has room to go.

This has been a big win over the last number of years. Located in Canada. The grades, as you get lower, get quite a bit higher, so cash costs should come down. There is a lot of consolidation in the sector, especially within Canada, so it could be an acquisition target.

Why are there a number of junior producers such as this, that are near 52 week highs while most seniors are near multiyear lows? You have to look at names on a individual fundamental basis. The reason this one is at a 52 week high is that they made a phenomenal new discovery at depth, below their existing mine in Northern Ontario. The wealth creation of that asset is a reason to own the name.

This is one of the smallest holdings that he has. Revenues in the last quarter were up 26%, but the company lost a little bit of money. Just did a financing of 8 million shares for $1.45, which just about doubles the amount of money they have in the bank. They need this for the Island deep gold mine which they are developing. Very, very good potential play. Doesn’t have a lot of debt, about $5 million and less than 50 million shares outstanding.

Sold 90% of his holdings. Virtually all the bad news is out. Wrote off the lot on the Franceour Mine so had loss of about $30 million. Without writing this mine off, they would’ve made a lot of money. Have over $50 million in the bank. Pretty clean balance sheet. Unfortunately they borrowed about $10 million at 7.5% and they didn’t need it. This is one of the far more reasonable goal plays out there and has the potential for a lot of upside.

Great balance sheet, good assets, good properties, but there are major questions in terms of the change in management. CEO leaving in August. New management have given themselves a lot of options and he doesn’t see why. Company is moving in a different direction and he would not be surprised to see them acquire something in the future.

How do you determine when to sell? He originally paid $1.81 sold his 1st portion at $6.53 and then sold more at $10+. He only has 10% left. It is not easy deciding when to sell next. They just raised $10 million. Won't sell the rest before the year-end.

Looks like it is heading back up to its recent high but it does have a lot of headway. There was some profit taking after its high but is also related to the price of gold. Looks a little trickier right now. Looks like it will struggle around the $12 range. Use a $10 stop.

One of his absolute favorites. When you have specific information about the company and also the fundamentals are both positive. You are seeing some big production increases. No debt, cash in the bank. Will be another jump in production later this year with a mine in Quebec coming on line.

One of his favorites. It’s in Canada, in Newfoundland and Quebec. Debt free and a good amount of cash. A well managed firm. Their mines are in a good cycle of their production – a sweet spot. They are ramping up production. Thinks gold prices will go up over the next few years.
