          I agree that Platinum has some catching up to do with Palladium, but things will balance out over time.

      Yes! It was a pretty epic day in the PGM sector today, after already having a solid week. Some of the more widely discussed stocks were up double digits again, which puts a little fun back in this tiny sector. My positions PLG, PGE, and JLP.L have had a great week, but today was the icing on the cake.

        Group Ten Metals Inc. (TSXV: PGE)

        Hunting for Platreefs in a 5-Star Neighborhood

        January 16, 2020 – Red Cloud Securities – Jacob Willoughby | VP, Research

        “We are initiating coverage on Group Ten Metals. The company holds
        the second biggest land package in the prolific Stillwater Igneous
        Complex of southern Montana, undoubtedly the best jurisdiction to
        be in for PGM exploration and development. Group Ten is well funded
        as it recently closed oversubscribed private placement financings that
        added Sprott Asset Management and Goldspot Discoveries to its share
        register.”

        “The outlook for PGMs (palladium in particular) is stronger than
        ever with the price of palladium having outperformed all other precious
        metals in 2019. The recent acquisition of North American Palladium by
        Impala Platinum underscores the need for renewed investment in the
        space. Group Ten is our favourite PGM explorer in the public domain and
        we expect big things from this currently small company going forward.
        We believe its Stillwater West properties have great potential to host
        large scale, near surface Platreef-style (PGM-Ni-Cu) mineralization.”
