Meet the juniors

The Turkish Constitutional Court’s June 2010 decision to reform Turkey’s mining code, preventing individuals from hoarding mining licences for the sole purpose of selling them again at a premium, has attracted the interest of juniors, Martin reports. He gives the examples of Portugal, Cambodia and Myanmar as well. “You’re seeing Canadians on the ground in all these places.”

Still, Martin cautions, junior mining equities are by nature highly speculative. There is much to be gained, but also much to be lost if one isn’t careful. It’s this element of risk which makes the Cambridge House conference indispensable to investors. “Exploration is very high risk/high reward. I always say the most important question you’re going to ask with mineral exploration companies is: Who’s the jockey? Who’s running the show? A good jockey is going to get money and find good projects and put a good team together. When you’re in high risk, high speculation, you really want to look the guy you’re giving money to in the eye. You want to meet the people. You need to do your research, and meeting the people behind these projects is important.”

Speakers at the conference will include Kaiser Research‘s John Kaiser, Chris Powell and Bill Murphy of GATA, Brent Cook, Thom Calandra and Lawrence Roulston, among many other industry experts. However, says Martin, “I think what stands out is the number of companies appearing. We have about 130 exhibitors in Toronto and a lot of the booths will be representing two or three companies. And they bring a very high level of management to these events.”

He adds, “I would say a big chunk of the people who are going to attend are already shareholders. You don’t have the big funds in here; you’ve got a lot of small investors and it’s important that there be a meeting place for them.”

Registration opens for the conference at 7:30 a.m., Thursday, September 27. But attendance is free to those who pre-register at the Cambridge House website.
