Insights from an exploration geologist – How to analyze lower grade drill results

Steve Todoruk, Investment Executive and Geologist at Sprott Global Investments joins me to share how he analyses drill results that are generally lower grade. We discuss minimum grades he wants to see when it comes to a new discovery and how certain grades result in more takeovers. We also chat about companies that release visual results before assays are received.

If there are any exploration and discovery focused topics you want Steve and I to discuss (regulations restrict us from discussing any current companies) please email me at Fleck@kereport.com.

Steve is offering again to take a look and discuss any companies in your portfolio. Please email Steve directly at STodoruk@sprottglobal.com or myself.

            Glen your call was great but how do you not know who Larry is? He has posted an a lot around here lately, albeit mostly on the political side. He nailed GDX as well from what I recall.

            Are you still betting on lower IPT?

            Friendly bet my Sensai?

            Impact will break down from this consolidation. If not the strength is going to propel this bad boy to higher levels like we both discussed in private.
            I’m still expecting a date with lower levels first.

            I’m sorry I don’t post or watch to much of the political side of things. I may have seen a Larry once or twice before but if I don’t recollect it’s because he did not come under the radar sorry.

            Regarding impact I will reserve comment.

    That’s spot gold. The December futures contract hit 1770.65
    You can tell that 1781 has some technical significance by the way it has put up some resistance for the last hour. Dec gold is still not above it (1780.50 at the moment)

        It’s now 90 minutes past the open and Dec gold is 1779. When we get above 1781, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see the shorts start to run for cover.

      I hope you’re right but I don’t trust these bankers. I did do some buying in the morning but keeping 40 percent of the capital for next week. The reason I say this because stocks are breaking out across the board, hedgies and retail investors are busy chasing biotechs and small caps. I won’t surprised if miners form a U shaped bottom as opposed to explosive V rebound. I will do some heavy buying if next week goes down even more.

    Hi Cami,

    I’m going with my call that goes way back detail per detail.. It hit my long term target and that’s speaks for itself. The miners have pretty much bottomed. We are in a bull. You can try and catch a few percentages more if it even comes but you can also be left behind quickly. To each there own. Best of luck

    I also have a final tranche if needed but it feels like bottom is in. I can live with my call lol.

        Glenfidish says:


        You are without a doubt one who challenges us and I love it! I have Matt an answer which her probably is baffled at. So I will elaborate because you asked. I gotta tell you sometimes I don’t know with that Matt.. lol.. don’t know if he is challenging me or really trying to get my perspective. You and I both know the respect I have for him. Let’s make this clear. I’ve have been successful this year and the best year I have ever had because Matt has shown me a few things. Now I challenge Matt lol.. It’s friendly. But I tell you, if you get a guy like him, Jerry, dt myself. Ex, and a few more, you are a winner.

        Charles to answer your question I did not give a response because Matt left me thinkkng. I don’t think I have ever seen a stock leave me scraping my head. So I will answer to the. Eat if my ability.

        My second most favourite stock is impact! My first let’s see if anyone knows beside Matt lol? Matt don’t answer.

        Im not as loaded as Matt o impact wish I was but I added. It is showing shear strength. Relentless and not going down. Does not mean it can’t go! I never rule that out.. I have a tranche if it does my number is .59-.68..

        If it doesn’t guys impact is flying easily $3.00 plus on this move. Matt will show his charts..
        It is showing super strength.

          Charles says:

          Thanks Glen. I agree Matt is the best technician I know and he has schooled me on a thing or two! As for Impact, I have been waiting for it to drop down, but to me today was a giant tell as it went up and appears to be making a higher low. Next week should be the confirmation. Monday should be interesting!

        • On November 28, 2020 at 2:12 pm,
          Matthew says:

          Guys, my concern is silver. Has it been leading gold all this time by bottoming way back in September or lagging it by refusing to shed bullishness… until now. That latter IS possible but the silver miners could still perform relatively well if the final low for silver is a short time away (even if not a short price distance away). Riskier items (miners, in this case) have a way of leading safer ones (metals).
          Monday’s action could provide good clues about what to expect since the miners performed much better than the metals on Friday despite silver’s apparent breakdown. It took out its 10/29 low but closed one cent above it so maybe we’ve got a bear trap being set. In addition, if gold has bottomed, you can be pretty confident that silver has too.

          Glen, yes, all that IPT strength we’ve seen could quickly turn into weakness and possibly disproportionately so since all the buying that took place above .90 could turn into panicked selling. I doubt such drama but do think it could hit about .84 again if silver falls further.

            I’ve looked at every angel that I could from my end, and then looked at your charts. My conclusion is first line of defence “ if” the bottom is not already in is that 21 and change area of resistance. Looks like a really good bet.. The sand in the line to me Would be the 19 and change area in your chart greater resistance level. The latter seems possible but we wait and see. From a monthly chart perspective, I personally don’t expect impact to breach the 10 day moving average anymore once we head up. It will tag it but 99% sure it won’t breach it on the run to much higher targets.

            Thanks again

        Whether it is government, central banks, or health organizations, what they all have in common is a refusal to make saving money a cornerstone of crisis preparation.
