Craig Hemke from TF Metals Report – Thu 16 Jul, 2020

Will mining company earnings result in a leg higher for stocks or the correction some are waiting for?

Craig Hemke joins me today for a look ahead to upcoming earnings results from mining companies. Expectations are for a good round of earnings however the stocks are stagnant into these reports. Will earnings be the catalyst for the next leg higher or will they pull the shares into the correction that is due?

    I like listening to Craig Hemke, he is well spoken, well thought out, quick witted, and a good foil for Eric Sprott. DT

          I enjoy TF and ES and their weekly conversations. ES seems willing to express his thinking on the “whys” of why he invests in certain stocks. I try to listen to their conversation before doing any Friday trading. I also check the Korelin site, 321 Gold and news.
          Today was some house cleaning. Switched some Santacruz to Southern Silver. Switched Sitka to Defiance as a new buy. And returning to Orex and Orezone yesterday has both those up at the moment. Southern Silver and Impact were perky today.

          • On July 17, 2020 at 9:34 am,
            Excelsior says:

            Agreed David. It is nice to hear why Uncle Eric likes a particular company and the thesis behind it. Good website lists with the KE Report, 321Gold, news/mining, and I also jump on Seeking Alpha for any macro thoughts or editorials on specific miners. is a good one too.

            Out of those stocks you mentioned – I’m just holding my Santacruz Silver, Southern Silver, Defiance Silver, Orex Minerals, and Orezone run higher with the Silver price.

            I don’t have any Sitka Gold, but did look at it when you brought it up last time.

            Yes, Impact Silver, Southern Silver, Santacruz Silver, and most of the silver stocks have been very perky today and the last few weeks.

            Ever upward!

            Excelsior says:

            I was just lumping those companies together, but obviously Orezone is one of the premier Gold developers (not a silver company). I’m holding it as well for the march upwards in the PMs for the medium to longer term.

          • On July 17, 2020 at 9:38 am,
            Excelsior says:

            Also, it is fascinating to watch Silver continue to flirt with the 2019 high of $19.75 and I’m hoping it closes the week above that level, and it was up to $19.78 earlier, but now is hovering 2 ticks below it at $19.73. Looking for a strong weekly close here!

          • On July 17, 2020 at 10:03 am,
            Excelsior says:

            (SCZ) (SZSMF) Santacruz Silver announced earlier this week that their AISC was $20.39. With Silver moving higher towards $20, then they are getting very close to break-even here, and their economic margins will be improving more than almost any other Silver producer on a percentage basis. (along with the higher cost Endeavour Silver as well)

          • On July 17, 2020 at 10:05 am,
            Excelsior says:

            If/when Silver finally does break above the 2016 high of $21.23, then Santacruz will really move.

            Wolfster says:

            If you like orezone that much Ex you should buy the warrants for extra leverage. Expire in 2023 if memory serves me correct

          • On July 17, 2020 at 1:06 pm,
            Excelsior says:

            Hey Wolfster – Yes, you’ve mentioned the Orezone warrants before, and it is worth consideration. I just normally like holding the ordinary shares, but since I believe those are going to be more valuable, I guess grabbing a swath of longer-dated warrants makes sense. Keep the good ideas coming!

        • On July 17, 2020 at 11:36 am,
          David says:

          I still have mire Santacruz than Southern Silver, but 3x the profit in Southern. If that changes, I will shift back. Also, second day in a row added to Freegold. Looking for a repeat or similar to their last hole. If not, then I will shift to Vizsla to see if they repeat. If not, then I will move to Bolivia.

          • On July 17, 2020 at 12:09 pm,
            Excelsior says:

            Yeah, Southern Silver has really been on a tear lately, and I’ve considered lightening up a bit, but their ounces in the ground are being rerated higher with Silver, and Silver is looking like it may break out soon.

            Vizsla has been moving again today so that is nice to see.

            When you say Bolivia are you thinking (NUAG) New Pacific Metals?
            (I have exposure to them because Silvercorp (SVM) owns 29% and helped create them)


          • On July 17, 2020 at 12:45 pm,
            David says:

            Bolivia: just give up and move there. But, now you have given me another idea.

          • On July 17, 2020 at 1:04 pm,
            Excelsior says:

            Oh – Haha! I’ve never visited Bolivia but it may be a good place to hide out.

            Yeah, New Pacific has had some stellar exploration work the last 2 years, and I thought Silvercorp would just buy them out, but then they made the move to try and acquire Guyana Goldfields. Who knows, but NUAG was the only silver play that came to mind in Bolivia. I’m sure there are more though…

    Silver Chart Showing Massive Upside says Don Durrett

        Silver closed exactly at $19.75 today (at the exact same level as the 2019 high in Silver).

        It would have been nice to see the weekly close at $19.76 or higher, but hell it is still a very bullish move and weekly close, and it made a higher high earlier in the week.

        • On July 17, 2020 at 1:47 pm,
          Matthew says:

          Stockcharts does show 19.76 as the close but I see no reason to care one way or the other since last week’s multi-year high close was just 19.05 and last year’s absolute high was exceeded during 4 of the last 5 sessions. In addition, 4 of the last 5 daily closes were higher than last year’s highest daily close while last year’s highest weekly close was a whopping buck-and-a-half lower than this week’s close.

          You’d have to go back to September, 2016 to find a higher weekly close than we just got today.

            Yeah, good point, it was a solid weekly close for sure, and I see that Stockcharts is showing it at $19.76. Nicely done Silver.

        The Fed said the swaps, in which the Fed accepts other currencies in exchange for dollars, will for at least the next six months allow the central banks of Australia, Brazil, South Korea, Mexico, Singapore, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and New Zealand to tap up to a combined total of $450 billion, money to ensure the world’s dollar-dependent financial system continues to function.

        Those countries were given swap lines during the 2007 to 2009 crisis, and the Fed has permanent swap arrangements with the Bank of Canada, the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan, the European Central Bank, and the Swiss National Bank.

        OOTB – yep saw that from Katsua about a month or two back regarding fed swap lines and jurisdiction risk. While there may be some consideration there from rogue nations, and a few may nationalize mines in central Africa or Indonesia or maybe Latin America, most countries should have learned not to do that as they get taxes, GDP, jobs, roads, power infrastructure, etc by having foreign investments from mining companies.

        The topic circulated over at ceo for a few weeks and most concluded it wasn’t as big of concern as it was hyped to be to sell newsletter subscriptions.

        It is an interesting point to consider on the swap lines with the fed, and may help countries like Mexico, Canada, Great Britain, Japan, Switzerland, the EU, Austalia, South Korea, etc… get stabilized if the monetary system further degrades and currency wars escalate. However, Katusa’s main point was that countries outside of these countries could all go belly up and seize the mines in each country to nationalize them. I guess it is possible in a few, but I’m not staying out of West African countries, one of the best areas on the planet for Gold mining, just because they don’t have swap lines with the USA. There are plenty of countries in Central and South America I’m invested in, that don’t have swap lines (I believe only Brazil has one). There are Asian nations I’m invested in that again, have no swap lines.

        Most investors felt the same way after mulling things over, and while it is in an interesting point, most of the untapped areas to explorer are in the frontier emerging nations, and while they have more risk, they also can have monster deposits one modern mining methods are used to explore the last real unknown areas.

        I think Katusa…also pointed out……..there are no swap lines to govts that do not play along with the usa/fed/dollar ….so, the countries with out the dollar or these swap lines(loans), will be force to nationalize the mines to keep their govt running….with gold.
        Gold will be the last man standing , after the collapse of the fiat dollar bogus Federal Reserve Note…
        We have to be getting close………
        Main point…….if, I am an investor in mining companies…..the less risk the better…..therefore only invest in safer areas……..

          You guys know I march to the beat of my own drum, but consume as much information as I can. While I tend to agree with the five-year time line of nationalization of miners, AND while I think the Fed will keep the system going longer than most others think, I do NOT THINK think the economy can remain stable for another 5 years.
          It, of course, depends on Trump’s re-election. But even if he gets re-elected and starts a massive infrastructure re-building program to boost the economy, I am still projecting a 3 year time-line, using best assumptions.

To be fair there was a delay caused by Skype where they both talked over one another. Joe also has a point of interrupting a guest when they are on a roll to ask a point he wants to share.

        Most of the folks in the comment section on the JRE site didn’t get Peter’s points at all and blamed him for being a tone deaf conservative rich white guy talking about fiscal responsibility and saving when folks are broke.

This mask would have helped to protect other people should he have had COVID-19. But no the asshole decided to assault a store employee instead after which the criminal left. When the police went to the criminal’s home hours later, that is when he was shot. His being shot had nothing to do with wearing a mask.

      I’ve been very constructive on Northern Vertex for the last year and half, and it’s ascent higher has caused it to grow to a larger and larger weighting in my portfolio, now in my top 10. I’m likely going to trim it back a bit soon, but that is hard to do when it has been performing like a champ.

          Excelsior says:

          Yeah I first started positioning in Northern Vertex back in 2018. I actually picked NEE for the 2018 stock picking contest over at, but was a year early. They really took off last year and have continued moving this year, and rightly so, as they transitioned from a Gold Developer to a Gold producer, had a few speed bumps getting started (like any new mine) but now they are humming right along with production into rising metals price environment.

          I love it when a plan comes together!

            Correction, I was doing that from memory but just went and check and I was off a year once again. (lol)

            I had picked NEE for @EvenPrime’s 2019 stock picking contest (not the 2018 spc). Most of 2018 Northern Vertex was selling off, and I didn’t even first get positioned until November 1st of 2018 and added more on Nov 8 2018, which was why I picked it for 2019. It continued to sell off for the first half of 2019 and I was underwater on it for a while. Most recently I added more Northern Vertex on March 3rd and March 19th of this year, which has worked out well, but that is true in almost every Gold or Silver miner since then.

            Last year NEE did OK from the Summer into the Fall, but it really has sprung to life since the March lows, at a 2-bagger off the lows. After looking at the chart, I may just hang onto my position for now as it has a ways to go to even make it up to the valuation it had back in 2017 and early 2018, much less exceed those levels.

            Also the Market Cap of Northern Vertex is only at $108 Million which is smaller by many magnitudes than so many exploration and development stocks that are not even producing yet, and may never get into production. It’s in a great jurisdiction and has a nice balance of both Gold & Silver and good costs. Also, they have a power line being connected that should help drive costs even lower.

            Another point regarding Northern Vertex is that their Moss Mine is on the southern part of the Walker Lane gold trend that goes from Nevada down into Arizona & par of California.

            Northern Vertex is not far from Equinox Gold’s Castle Mountain project.

    Energy Fuels reaffirms 2020 uranium production guidance of 125K-175K lbs., mainly from pond returns and alternate feed material recycling at the White Mesa Mill in Utah.

    The company expects to end 2020 with 640K-690K lbs. of finished uranium, and if spot pricing for uranium remains at the current $32.90/lb., inventory valued at $21M-$23M alongside its 1.6M-lb. vanadium inventory valued at $8.5M.
