Canaccord Sponsors Junior Mining Forum, Vancouver, October 14
With gold having broken through the historic $1,300-an-ounce barrier, investors are showing a renewed interest in junior miners, the companies that actually find the gold. But how can investors discern the best junior miners from the rest? What sets the successful junior apart? What does an analyst look at when choosing a junior miner?
With these questions in mind, David Kearnes, Senior Investment Adviser, Canaccord Wealth Management, is sponsoring the Junior Mining Forum in Vancouver, Thursday, October 14, at the Pan Pacific Hotel’s Crystal Pavilion Ballroom at 5.30 pm.
The Canaccord Junior Resource Forum comes at a particularly appropriate time, given the excitement which is beginning to surround the junior resource sector. This excitement was given tangible expression in a major story in the Globe and Mail September 28: “Gold Communities buzzing as prices soar,” by David Parkinson.
According to the Globe,
Financiers and entrepreneurs in this country’s mining-investment hot spots–Toronto and Vancouver–say their summer doldrums have given way to a renewed fundraising fervour. Phones have started ringing, restaurants have started filling and investors have started coming out of the woodwork looking to do deals.
The rise of the price of gold, the Globe reports, “has focused eyes on opportunities to get in on the golden action, as investors salivate over bullion’s bullish outlook combined with still-depressed valuations of gold stocks, particularly at the junior end of the sector.”
The Globe concludes that “the junior gold firms have become a focus of attention, largely because their stock valuations look extraordinarily cheap.”
Speakers at the Junior Mining Forum will include the CEOs: Jim O’Rourke of Copper Mountain Mining Corporation, Bruce Bragagnolo of Timmins Gold Corp and Charles Pitcher of United Mining Group, as well as a senior mining analyst from Canaccord. The Forum gives investors the opportunity to learn about three companies that started from scratch and built themselves into either producers or near-term producers.
Each company will give a 15-minute presentation, to be followed by questions and answers. Canaccord is well placed to sponsor this Forum, because the junior resource sector is one of the areas Canaccord specializes in. In addition, they provide research coverage on Timmins and Copper Mountain and we have participated in financing all three companies.
For David Kearnes of Canaccord, the Junior Mining Conference presents a prime opportunity for investors to familiarize themselves with a sector that is clearly on the move. It will be of particular value for investors looking at companies that are very close to production but have not yet had institutional research coverage.
Resource Clips is a media partner of the Junior Mining Forum and will be providing news and articles on the participating companies prior to the conference.
