April 22nd, 2014, 3:49 pm PDT Zimtu Capital head of research Derek Hamill discusses critical commodities and industrial minerals

Especially with conflict minerals legislation in the U.S., there’s more concern about where supply comes from. There’s security of supply issues too, when sources come from a country like China.


April 14th, 2014, 11:32 am PDT Declan Resources president/CEO David Miller talks about uranium activity in Saskatchewan’s Athabasca Basin

I would say 90% of the Basin is essentially unexplored. I think it would be foolish to say the largest deposit has been discovered.


April 7th, 2014, 11:56 am PDT Energy expert Thomas Drolet looks at uranium and nuclear power from a global point of view

Canada has such a horrendous supply capacity in the Athabasca Basin—horrendous. There’s potential in other parts of Canada too, but there’s so much in the Athabasca that frankly we could supply the whole world if it were fully developed.


March 19th, 2014, 9:25 am PDT Energy expert Thomas Drolet discusses Fukushima, nuclear power and uranium

The very fact that the first reactors start to come back online will create a media-driven message that nuclear power is safe again. That will, in my opinion, cause the [uranium] price to move up gradually.


March 4th, 2014, 1:39 pm PDT Patrick Kluczny of Dahrouge Geological Consulting on the economics of frac sand exploration

If we identify an area we want to advance rapidly, we can do a lot of the drilling very quickly. Your money will go two to three times as far with auger drilling as core drilling. Augering will be the main tool that would potentially build a 43-101 resource.


February 20th, 2014, 12:11 pm PDT Jim Mustard, VP of mining investment banking for PI Financial

[Private equity has] capital like you would not believe, ready to invest. But they’re very careful. That’s sticky money. But it’s an indication that the equity market’s not far behind.


February 11th, 2014, 1:23 pm PDT Gavin Dirom of the Association for Mineral Exploration British Columbia expresses optimism prior to Roundup 2014

The industry has seen some very tough cycles in the past. We’re a resilient group, the industry remains strong and it’s likely to get stronger this year.


February 5th, 2014, 12:19 pm PDT Chris Berry discusses industrial, energy and agricultural minerals prior to the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference

When you look at what’s happening in China, their old way of doing business and of economic growth is collapsing. What is emerging now is a new, more sustainable focus on individuals and individual consumption, and cleaner and greener growth. These are just a few of the factors that I think bode well for the commodities space going forward.
