Recent M&A in the PM sector and couple arbitrage opportunities

April 1, 2021

Jayant Bhandari joins me today to share a couple stocks that are presenting arbitrage opportunities in the precious metals sector. We also discuss the recent M&A in the sector. There has been a pick up but still a lack of majors deals.

    Does Jayant still like Maritime? We were just talking about it on another thread.

      MAE offers very low risk and high reward. Moreover, the upside should get triggered soon. It has all that makes for an ideal investment. Just be mindful that 32 million warrants with an exercise price of C$0.15 expire on 17th April. So, there is no need to chase it.

        Thanks for the quick response and additional info. That is really appreciated.

        Jayant also shares the belief with Ex that Maritime may/should go in with some other miners in the area like Anaconda to make a more competitive larger resource/company.

          Anaconda, Rambler, and MAE should merge. There are massive operational synergies. These three companies are all small. Also, a merger would save about $10 million a year in corporate expenses.

            +3 Agreed Jayant.

    I wonder what Jayant thinks of GLDXF being bought by TPRFF?

      I’ll be sure to bring these questions up with Jayant next time we chat. Maybe I can get answer before our next call for you guys ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Thanks Cory. I know Jayant talked about Maritime before. Currently there is a lot of interest because of New Found Gold…anything in the area is being looked at differently. Doc was talking also about Great Bear and we got off on the tangent of the Royalty. As long as your checking out questions, maybe see if Chris T has any thoughts on the Royalty status. Thanks for all you do…

      Here is a talk with Cory that I had on Gold X a couple of months back:

      I haven’t followed GCM for a long time, but a quick look shows that they generate a very good cash flow. Earlier today, I was talking with Samuel Pelaez, who told me that because of currency rate changes, everything in Colombia has become very cheap. So, GCM should improve its cash performance, as its cost structure should improve.

      Now, I wouldn’t be surprised if a better offer for Gold X comes from Zijing.

      Gold X is a thinly traded stock, so I am expecting the arbitrage between Gran Colombia and Gold X to increase as we get closer to the merger date.

    Thanks, Jayant. Guess I’ll keep my Gold X and hope for a higher offer.
