The Mining Play

Other Mining Stocks

I mentioned this company last summer. It has released far too much information since last summer to include all of it since I only mentioned it in passing. Wishing I had picked up a lot more shares since then. Below is a list of the PRs released since the beginning of the year. I think it will do very well for the near and long term investor. JMHO

Vancouver, BC (June 4, 2021) Skeena Resources Limited (TSX: SKE, OTCQX: SKREF) (“Skeena” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that, in anticipation of pursuing a listing on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”), the Company will consolidate its common shares at a ratio of four pre-consolidation shares to one post-consolidation share (the “Consolidation”). Fractional shares of 0.5 or greater will be rounded up to the nearest whole number of common shares and fractional shares of less than 0.5 will be rounded down to the nearest whole number of Shares.
The Company currently has 243,810,333 common shares issued and outstanding. Upon completion of the Consolidation, the Company will have approximately 60,952,583 common shares issued and outstanding. Some slight variance is expected due to fractional rounding. As is customary, to reflect the Consolidation, all outstanding warrants and incentive stock options will be adjusted to increase their exercise price by a factor of four and to reduce the number of common shares issued upon exercise by dividing by four.
Subject to Skeena receiving all required approvals, including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”), the Consolidation is expected to take effect on June 7, 2021. Notice of the Consolidation has been provided to the TSX, and the common shares are expected to begin trading on a post-Consolidation basis on the TSX on or about June 10, 2021.


This is looking very positive for this company. If you have not yet had a look at what this company is doing, you might like to visit the above company link. I think this summer bodes well for those investing in the gold and silver miners at the present time. Keep an eye on all PRs. There are so many companies posting positive developments this year it presents a multitude of possible big gainers. GLTA

Very nice pickup mrbubba!

Well, I have to give all the glory to Rick and Mike, who turned me onto Quinton Hennigh, the brains behind Novo Resources (struggling right now) and New Found Gold.


Novo Resources may not look so attractive right now, but by the end of the year I’m anticipating it wil be hitting on multiple targets. It has disappointed many of it’s early investors by not producing results much quicker, but it’s Exploration Update last week shows it has a busy season ahead (NOVO Resources Corp. - Display) that will be pleasing investors for many years. It is one of my larger positions.


Quinton Hennigh really has a knack (er…brilliance) for spotting geological opportunities, explaining them in simple terms and ultimately moving them forward. I don’t have to look for new mining investments…he brings them to me merely by his involvement.


Interesting reference to Novo in Inventus’ latest PR:

As with almost all paleoplacers, assays from drilling alone do not provide enough information about gold grade because of the uneven gold distribution and small sample size. Therefore, it is crucial to collect an adequate size sample to correctly measure the grade.

An instructive example of this type of sampling was carried out by Novo Resources at their Beatons Creek paleoplacer project in Australia, which is currently starting commercial gold production. It included 45 samples averaging two tonnes each at regular intervals across the mineralized horizon.


Just an update :

About Skeena
Skeena Resources Limited is a Canadian mining exploration company focused on revitalizing the past-producing Eskay Creek gold-silver mine located in Tahltan Territory in the Golden Triangle of northwest British Columbia, Canada. The Company released a robust Preliminary Economic Assessment in late 2019 and is currently focused on infill and exploration drilling to advance Eskay Creek to full Feasibility by Q1 2022. Additionally, Skeena continues exploration programs at the past-producing Snip gold mine.

I believe there is a needed correction in this release, however.
It appears there is a new trading symbol on the OTC that may have caused some initial confusion in the US market. Fidelity shows the new ticker post reverse split as SKRED. Although I did not pick up the bid this morning, I did add to my position the last couple of days. I think we’ll see some very positive updates on this one throughout the summer.

Is this anywhere near the bottom, or as Basel III is scheduled to be enacted at the end of the month have any effect at all? Physical Gold changes from a Tier 3 (which includes paper contracts) asset to a Tier 1 (physical allocated gold) asset for banks. Here is an excerpt from a much longer article that has a very clear explanation of what Basel III is all about.

Some changes called for in Basel 3 were so extreme that some revisions were made and implementation was repeatedly delayed. As it now stands, some of the impact of Basel 3 takes effect at the end of June this year, while all changes become effective on Jan. 1, 2023.

The goal of the forthcoming Basel regulations is to limit the levels of risk that banks take on in the pursuit of profits, which would hopefully prevent a major worldwide financial crisis if markets turn negative. It’s a wonderful idea in theory. However, in practice, some changes could be so disruptive to the actions of some governments, central banks and financial institutions that there is already pushback.

Part of the Basel 3 regulations that could be especially disruptive are those involving bank trading of precious metals.

This is a very good article. I don’t think we’ll have to wait until 2023 to see some sensational moves upwards in the POG and resulting moves in the miners. The aftermath effects of Basel III may explain a lot of the volatility I expect to see in the PM mining sector. I expect some spectacular returns over the next several years in many of the producing and streaming stocks. There are a number of speculative drillers in both gold and silver that are likely to be targeted for M & A by the majors. I’m long on many of my core holdings, but expect to swing trade incrementally as opportunities arise.
