Chris Temple from The National Investor – Mon 27 Jul, 2020

Today is all about the pop in gold and silver and drop in the US Dollar

Chris Temple joins me to wrap up the markets today. It was a day where gold and silver made another strong move higher, all supported by a further fall in the US Dollar. Chris has a bit of a warning for metals investors that are not taking profits at these current levels.

      MXSG Mexus Gold hit the radar today.
      11.3 million traded with a gain of 46.15%
      Closing at the high of the day. .0057

        That was a nice move in MXSG today. I’m surprised it hasn’t started moving like that more often, as they are producing gold now and have some of the lowest costs I’ve seen down in the $500’s, so while their production is tiny, their margins are massive.

          However, the move of day was in Chesser Resources (CHZ.AX) up 176% on the day because of their news that broke:

          “multiple spectacular high-grade gold hits reported from Diamba Sud. Intersections include 48m @ 6.70g/t and 55m @ 4.27 g/t gold. Senegal- West Africa.”

          I don’t like the share structure with MXSG. I don’t know how many holders there are but 1.9 Billion shares is a lot of water to carry. To me, somewhere down the line a reverse split is in the cards.

            Excelsior says:

            Yes, no doubt a lot of shares and at one point they’ll roll them back, but far more important that the share count on any stock is the market cap valuation.

            With Mexus (MXSG) one is getting a Gold Producer with some of the lowest costs of any miner for a market cap of 7.6 Million. Not many of those gems laying around in the rough….

            Interesting Ex.
            Taking a second look the float is not that unreasonable.
            I am looking for small floats that provide big moves regardless of valuation. I am probably jaded due to the out sized gains I have made in the past. Perhaps it might be time to look at things a little differently.

          • On July 28, 2020 at 7:39 am,
            Excelsior says:

            Well JohnK you are correct that they have a crap ton of shares out, but another thing I’m looking at is that Mexus just paid off their old debt with a new loan, and claimed they’ll have it paid off through Gold revenues in the next 6 months of production. With their low costs and crazy high margins, I believe that is doable, but question anything any mining company claims until I see it with my own eyes.

            I’m thinking once they pay off their debt, and put together 2 more quarters of production numbers, that maybe then they’ll roll back the shares, which won’t effect the market cap in any way, but will bring in more investors scared of it looking like an Aussie penny stock.

            However, because they only have 1 US OTC listing, they don’t get the Canadian resource investors. MXSG is definitely higher risk, but I’ve been following it since 2016 and I was in when they ran from $.001 to $.20 last time (I got in at $.0034) and believe this time they can run back to $.20 again, but keep that validation with the operations underpinning the valuation this time.

            Once again thank you for your valuable insight.
            I will follow you in as I did with Mathew and Bonzo.
            Ray Dalio says that you don’t have to be the smartest person, just surround yourself with the smartest people.

            I agree with Ray’s point there, and it is just like in the book “Think and Grow Rich” where Napoleon Hill found that in interviewing many of the more successful business individuals at the time that they all surrounded themselves with a “Mastermind Group” to bounce ideas off of. I’ve always considered these investing forums a mastermind group of sorts.

            Good luck if you take a position in Mexus. I’m not trying to push it or recommend it, but simply outlining the reasons why I like it and am invested, despite their high risk as a tiny unknown gold producer only trading on the OTC as a true 1/2 penny stock. If it just goes up a few pennies, those will be nice returns. πŸ™‚

        Agreed. I finally spent a little time on RobinTrack and saw where SMTS went from 300-400 investors on (6/18), to 1,200 investors on (06/22), to over 4,000 investors on (06/23), down to 3300 investors on (06/24), to 2700 investors on (06/25), down to 2500 investors (06/26) and faded down to 1700-1500 investors over the last 3 weeks.

I just looked at Silvercorp (SVM) on RobinTrack, and its increase in new shareholders has gradually risen from the mid 700s in mid March to nearly 7000 now in late July, but in a much more orderly fashion. That is a 10 times rise in the number of investors holding Silvercorp. I like it…. I like it alot…..

    Gold just had 7 days up in a row so a down day is probable very soon. There was a 10 day run in December but 7+ is rare. I will not be selling any miners based on this possibility nor am I going to sell gold.

      Not only days up, but mostly over the upper Bolinger band.
      The “down” day might just be a hold in price, while the Bolinger band moves upward.

      I would expect some rotation in the stocks, however, as laggards catch up while the early movers hold for a while.

      A lot, I think depends on the FOMC statement on Wednesday, as to the duration of any possible down move.

            Absolutely. I believe most should have moved up even higher based on where Silver has vaulted up to, but almost anyone buying Gold or Silver stocks the last 4 months has had far better gains than most conventional stock market sectors. There are generalist investors waking up to this tiny sector and I believe medium to longer term, we are going to see gains that make these pale in comparison.

            Ever Upward!

I’m hoping they stay halted all day to hold onto their gains, and wait until tomorrow to release their news. (lol). I have a feeling stocks are going to sell off today and any good news released will get lost in the shuffle.

            I hope the news ends up being that they are buying out the Zimapan mine outright. Currently they are only leasing their 3rd and most profitable mine, but I’d love to see them bring it into the fold permanently. They recently sold some non-core properties at Zacatecas and maybe that is what they were raising funds for.

            Nice! SCZ Santacruz bought their Zimapan Mine. That has been the one area of concern in the back of my mind, as that lease was set to expire in December, but now that very productive mine is their third one. That is excellent news for the longer term with Santacruz. Think how long it takes to drill out a resource, prove to the market a deposit could be economical, permit a mine, get the social license, etc… etc… It’s far more advantageous to just buy an operating mine outright. Well done SCZ!

      Believe I made a comment recently wondering if Kootenay may be getting held down by a possible financing in the works. Baby steps but I still love it going forwards.

      • On July 28, 2020 at 9:08 am,
        Matthew says:

        Wolfster, I don’t think it will be baby steps for much longer. Not counting the high grade project and its potential, KTN has at least 63M ounces “in the money” right now. The current 24.70 silver price adds $2.70 per each of those 63M ounces. That’s an additional $170M of value in the ground that is not yet priced into the shares.Which brings me to one other extremely important component to leverage: Market cap. For any given news item that might add value, obviously the lower the market cap the better. The added $170M should be good for more than a double since KTN has a market cap of about $100M but the leverage would be five times greater if KTN had a market cap of $20M. I think you already know this stuff but for those new to the sector, the concept is an important one that explains why discoveries made by the Barricks or Newmonts of the sector don’t move the share price needle.

            Could be but I’ll guess it’s just due to market demand. The extra cash is great and the terms aren’t bad with the warrants way out of the money at 55 cents.
            Eric Sprott paid $5M at .16 for his shares and Sprott Asset Management paid $2M at .26 last year. The associated warrants were .22 and .40, respectively.

          Thanks Matthew for the clarification, appreciated, how does that work out for Brixton? Thanks for all your comments and posts here.

          • On July 28, 2020 at 8:54 pm,
            Matthew says:

            Rene, Brixton is very different in that it has no NI 43-101 compliant measured and indicated resources just some inferred ounces at Thorn and a historical resource at Hog Heaven of 47M ounces of silver and .23M ounces of gold. I’d bet there’s nothing wrong with the historical resource but it is not bankable yet. Still, it is definitely part of the value calculation and I’m sure I’m not alone in giving the company credit for those ounces.

            While Kootenay’s ounces were the main reason for my interest in that stock, it’s the huge exploration potential that is the primary reason for my interest in Brixton. That makes Brixton more speculative and maybe technically more risky but I think the actual risk at the current price is much lower than most might perceive. Brixton’s market cap is about one-quarter that of Kootenay’s and probably for good reason but I will be surprised if Brixton doesn’t outperform Kootenay over the next 6 months. However, I will also be surprised if Brixton isn’t more volatile than Kootenay precisely because it is much more difficult to price its potential than to price the resources that Kootenay already has.

            There’s a lot more guesswork in speculating in the explorers which is part of the reason for their often unbelievable gains.

They’ve been my best performing gold developer this year as they move towards production by Christmas, but they continue to keep hitting with exploration as well, sweetening the pot.

      It is similar to the selloff we saw yesterday and continuing into today with Azimut Exploration, where the market wanted more, more, more…. but often times the expectations driving these exploration stocks higher are divorced from reality, and when reality shows up in a press release where the results are good and solid, but not earth-shattering amazing, then folks bail. Conversely, I like to start buying when these sell off, clearing out the froth and hot money, but the projects are actually getting more derisked. I added more to Azimut and picked up some Nighthawk so far today, as well as adding to my Dolly Varden position. I may grab a little more Discovery that I trimmed yesterday into the froth, and may grab more Kootenay while it is on sale.

        I still remember when the Orezone news broke a few years back where their resource recalculation really disappointed the marketplace and it sold off hard and I was buying it strong the next few trading session. Over time, as investors expectations were recalibrated, it has proven to be one of the best gold development projects out there and has been a superb investment.

      A lot of commentators have a strange aversion to the silver stocks and I don’t get it. To each their own, yes, but they are not helping themselves or their fans (Brent Cook, John Kaiser, etc).

      • On July 28, 2020 at 11:15 am,
        Excelsior says:

        Agreed. Don’t leave out Mickey Fulp who was dissing on those that invest in Silver miners in 2016 when they trounced his picks, and for the last year he’s thrown a number of barbs at Silver mining stock investors again, and just 2 weeks ago said he didn’t think Silver would get much above the $19 level due to industrial demand, and said the Gold:Silver ratio at 90 was normal, and that is why Silver could never make it to 100 or it would imply a Gold prices of $9000. M.F. neglected to consider that the Gold:Silver ratio actually may drift down over time to let’s say 30:1 where $100 Silver would simply mean $3000 Gold.

        I don’t get alienating their audience of resource investors, and if people are bullish Gold and Gold mining stocks (as they should be), then why wouldn’t they be even more bullish Silver and Silver mining stocks? It’s a terrible marketing strategy for them, misses out on huge gains for their followers, and ripping on Silver investors as crazy all the time as near-sighted as it is insulting.

        In Precious Metals bull markets SILJ will out perform both GDX and GDXJ and that will become painfully clear once again to these “experts” that are gold purists, and it will be entertaining to remind them of that whole way up.

            My little joke is a reference to MF’s buddies Cook and Kaiser making silver investment political four years ago when they decided silver investors are “right-wing extremists.”
            It was a peculiar and cringe-worthy display that I have since seen from others. Perhaps it stems from the fact that leftists in general do not understand money or the immorality of the monetary systems in place around the world.

          • On July 28, 2020 at 1:27 pm,
            Excelsior says:

            Agreed. Silver is money like Gold and has been many years.

            In one of those 2016 “At the Bar” video segments, both Fulp and Cook called Silver investors crazy “wingnuts” and had a good chuckle over it. Too bad most of the Jr Silver companies just destroyed their picks that year and in many other cycles. Meanwhile Brent has pumped Mirasol for a decade as it has gone nowhere, and Fulp changes what he likes based on which companies will still sponsor his website, but most were not anywhere close to the performance of SILJ back in 2016 or over the last year as he’s crapped on Silver investors once again.

            Yes it is sad that they don’t get it.

        Agreed that they aren’t helping their subscribers. I don’t see any right/left bias in silver investment. Grew up with many family members miners of the product. I easily remember when it was controlled at $1.29. The last big mine in our area closed. Anyway, I’ve personally made more on silver than any other single investment. All of my physical was purchased under $5. Some at $3. I believe I’ll live long enough to the price over $100 easily and within the next three years or so.

      Good. I’m tired of making money in these Silver miners. (only kidding, a pullback is normal, healthy, and overdue).

      I’m really been considering your point of consolidating more Silver positions down into SILJ and just using leverage in it to push a move in a bullish trend, or even to average down at a low point. I don’t have a position in SILJ (and haven’t for years actually), but if we get a reasonable pullback then I may start building a SILJ position over time from there and as I trim or sell other positions over time, just keep throwing more logs on that fire. The points you laid out the other day made a lot of sense to me.
