Addressing the upside in early 2020 for gold and silver

Doc joins me for what has to be one of his more bullish calls for gold and silver into 2020. We also touch on the GDX chart and a couple stocks that Doc likes the most right now.

    Doc, what do you think about Triumph Gold,could it be a good buy at this price? I extend the question to everyone that listen to KER.

      Marco, as far as fundamentals are concerned and for an indepth analysis, EX would be a person to listen to. Their fundamentals look pretty good as regards their drill results. The share count may be a little higher then I would like at this stage of development and it doesn’t help that their mines are in the Yukon. They have road accessibility. They have cash in the bank but might have to go back to the market again. Their debt is not huge. The technicals seem to show there will still be pressure on their shares for the first quarter of next year but then they should bottom in price so you might be a little patient on this stock yet to take a position. I hope this helps.

          Marco – Doc just summed things up well.

          I went back added some additional comments on the Chris Temple blog at the bottom and came to similar conclusions that Doc did above. At first I thought they were more remote, but after reviewing their updated corporate presentation I saw that they had road access to their property with is a big help in the more remote Yukon province. I didn’t realize they had around 5 million gold equivalent ounces (once the nice Copper credits are factored in). Also they’ve had some longer lower grade intercepts, but also some really high grade but narrow gold intercepts, so it makes for a mixed bag, but they are further along in advancing that deposit than I realized, and see why some newsletters got animated about it in the summer.

          Once they fill up the warchest again for next year’s drilling program it may be a good one to bottom fish. Also with Newmont as strategic stakeholders, it is easy to see where they may schoop them up at one point, so they make a good takeover target in that sense.

          Marco you definitely got me watching TIG a bit closer for 2020. Much appreciated!

            Very useful information Excelsior, for sure Triumph is a lagger and IF this gold rally will continue into the new year it could be an interesting buy.

        Marco, I’ll try and remember to keep this stock on my radar and will let you know when I believe it’s close to its’ bottom. You might remind me periodically to look at the chart of this one.

      Matthew says:

      I just posted the following where you first asked the question:
      Marco, I think the weakness is primarily due to the company’s working capital (cash and cash equivalents) position. At the end of the last quarter, management stated that the company had enough capital to fund its overhead through December 31, 2019 (tomorrow) and that it will require additional financing.
      This causes selling as investors want to avoid dilution but it might also cause selling (shorting) specifically to drive the price down so that those interested in the financing might get better terms.
      So you might wait for the financing details before buying or buying more. If it is a big one, shares could dip further on the news and you can buy that dip with confidence.

        marco says:

        Thank you Matthew , from all the answers I got on this stock I’ve understand that IF the upmove in gold stocks will continue , Triumph will be a lagger, but the company is a good one.

        • On December 30, 2019 at 3:46 pm,
          Matthew says:

          It really could bottom at any time considering its reluctance to plunge following the break of obvious support 3 weeks ago. In addition to the great sector-wide strength lately the stochastics and other oscillators also support the possibility that the shakeout might be near its end. But if it does manage to break the black fork support (.19 this week), it will probably be at .15 quickly…

          Raising new money should not be any problem in this market.

      Hi Irish; yes, this one does not appear to be a fake out move at all for PM stocks. I actually got positive about a week before gold broke higher this past year. There’s been a stealth bull market for SOME PM stocks since 2015 but we’re finally at the point where more stocks are going to benefit in my view. This thing will have its’ ups and downs but now is not the time to be shaken out. This is now an investors bull market and those that are patient will benefit immensely in the end.

      There may be gold in the environs of the Grand Canyon, but Bix is a bit extreme in suggesting Billions of ounces.
      Even if the New York Times had an article in 1912 stating “billions” of ounces of gold were there, do you really believe it is possible to accurately estimate the amount in the ground without drilling and properly surveying ?
      I’m prepared to believe there are millions of ounces there, even tens of millions, but really, “billions” just because a reporter said so. Prove it !

    In after-hours trading:

    Gold $1524

    Silver 18.17

    Unless there is an early morning smash down, it is looking like a great close for 2019 tomorrow for the Precious Metals.

    2020 should be a positive year to really get some interest back in the PM sector from some new investors. When the miners post some great returns and get a bit more excitement brewing, this tiny sector will become headline-worthy once again to more generalist investors.

    Hey Ex. I haven’t done a recent calculation on the rzz/gzz valuation discount but I have to imagine it’s way out of whack now with rzz bid $18.

    • On December 31, 2019 at 8:42 am,
      Excelsior says:

      Hi Wolfster – yes the valuation on GZZ is waaaaay low. I was actually considering adding some to that position soon, but feel there is more immediate upside in some of the smaller Silver and Gold producers and advanced developers.

      To your point, GZZ owns 44.7% of RZZ which has a market cap of 224.43M so GZZ should be at $100.32M valuation just on that part of their asset base alone (but they are currently at $65.83M). That also values all their other projects at 0.

      As for GZZ they also have projects going with Bonterra on Lac Barry which is going very well. BTR is getting all kinds of attention from Kirkland Lake KL and Eric Sprott because they have the mill in the windfall lake area next to Osisko (due to their acquisition of Metanor last year – which also makes Bonterra an active producer). This is also a huge plus for Golden Valley because they hold 519,480 shares in BTR Golden Valley Mines Mines now retains a 15% free carried interest in the Lac Barry Prospect and a 3% net smelter royalty (NSR).

      Golden Valley Mines also holds an NSR on the Cheechoo Project, which ranges from 2.5% – 4.0% depending on commodity prices. The Cheechoo project is 100% owned by Sirios Resources.

      Golden Valley Mines GZZ also retains a 1.5% Net Smelter Return on Centremaque that Alexandria Minerals has (being acquired by Osisko off-shoot O3 Mining).

      Golden Valley also has a strategic investment of size in Val-d’Or Mining VZZ, as well as International Prospect Ventures IZZ and those 2 stakes are hard to value at this point, but they will build in value over time and those both have a ton of projects under their respective unbrellas.

      Lastly, and quite importantly, GZZ Golden Valley Mines has a a 70:30 Joint Venture with Eldoardo Gold (formerly Ingetra Gold) in the group of nine (9) properties (8 gold and 1 copper-zinc-silver) located in the AGB (Québec and Ontario).

      **Bottom Line: to only value GZZ based on its position in RZZ really leaves out a ton of projects, JVs, NSRs, and future royalty streams out of the picture, and would severely short changing the overall mix of assets.

        Excelsior says:

        Update. Parts of that post were taken from an older post, and at this point Alexandrai Minerals is gone and O3 Mining has that Centremaque project.

        Also upon further reflection, considering that $RZZ only owns 55.3% of that big Net Smelter Royalty, then GZZ should even be valued even higher than just 44.7% of $RZZ’s value, but I’m being conservative and giving it’s value completely to RZZ. Really Golden Valley almost owns half of that NSR and should have 44.7% of the value attributed to the entire NSR.

        Lastly when I got in that to 70:30 JV with EGO ELD Eldorado Gold it was worded poorly. The 9 properties (8 gold and 1 copper-zinc-silver) located in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt (in Québec and Ontario), used to be held by Integra Gold [not ingetra… sounds gross], until they were acquired by Eldorado. Anyways, a larger Mid-tier producer has those projects now, so I have much more confidence in some of them actually becoming mines one day and that part of their portfolio should grow in value over time.

        Yeah. That’s the big issue. It’s not getting valued right and other stuff(a lot of silver plays) are rocking. It’s moving at a snails pace lately but keeps hitting new 52 week highs as well

        • On December 31, 2019 at 9:25 am,
          Excelsior says:

          Yeah, I’m conflicted in putting more in it because it is moving at a snails pace, but over time more folks are waking up to the undervaluation of GZZ in comparison to RZZ, and many of the other JV and NSR partners with GZZ (like Bonterra, Sirios, O3 Mining, Eldorado Mining, and even VZZ and IZZ are getting more traction).

          It is just a bit sluggish, especially considering how much metals prices have moved higher, but it does keep creeping higher. It’s a good place to dump ones profits.

          I think it is a very safe bet for further share price appreciation especially while trading at a huge discount to what their 44.7% stake is in the big NSR, not to mention a 44.7% stake in the rest of RZZ’s assets.

            That GZZ presentation is from October is way out of date now because their value from the RZZ stake has gone up by another $20 million that is not reflected in their shareprice valuation, and Alexandria was acquired by O3 Mining, and the Eldorado 70:30 split wasn’t featured very well (the old Integra Resources assets).

      It was a David Morgan DVD from a coin show I was at in 2008 that really got me thinking about the Precious Metals sector more seriously. I know many don’t like him and feel he’s lost all credibility, but I believe in giving credit where credit is due.

      Another book that had a big impact on my thinking regarding getting more allocation to the PM sector in 2008 & 2009 was “Aftershock”.

        Actually I just went over to my bookshelf – it was “America’s Bubble Economy” that I read during the 2008-2009 financial crisis (trying to understand what had happened), and then Wiedemer’s “Aftershock” came out a few years later. I also became a prepper big time back then in 08′-09′ with the 25 year shelf life foods, solar powered chargers, water storage & filtration, etc…
        Silver bullion was my go to investment though until I sold it 2011 and had a big “Silver Party” with my friends.

        I got really into the mining stocks in 2010 though, and didn’t really know what I was doing or how to understand their projects. At the time I was mostly in the producers.

        Still, between those 2 years 2010 & 2011, they were so exciting that I was hooked on the volatility of the mining stocks. Prior to that I was only a very conservative value investor in Mutual funds and Large Cap stocks, so the daily pips, pops, and drops in the miners were a wild ride…. and they still are today.
