The equity financing window for Canadian miners has opened up a little after a long dry spell, with more than $1.5B announced or completed since the start of September vs. just $2.8B in the first eight months of this year. But the window is only open to a select few; nearly all miners raising money in recent weeks are in production or have advanced projects with well-defined resources.

  • It has opened up down at the exploration level as well. You have to have a quality project with strong potential. The last year has been about separating the wheat from the chaff.


    Good juniors are attracting funds right now.

  • I should break down GDXJ sometime.

  • Hold on I will give a quick look. Columbia has been a hot region for the last few months but a number of stocks have been whalloped by boiler rooms pushing down prices.


    Had a skunk bid hit yesterday because of it on one junior I love.

  • Quick thoughts on Grand Columbia Gold. Nice projects and assets, high costs (not good), would prefer the gold and silver linked notes over the common stock.
