The companies presenting at the Metals Investor Forum are as vetted as it gets – they have already cleared the high hurdle of earning the coverage from the newsletter writers’ as companies with excellent management teams, great financials and promising properties.
All newsletter writers’ stress that the first quality on that list – excellent management – is essential to the success of a junior mining company. The problem is that it’s hard to assess management without being able to look them in the eye and ask the questions that matter to you. The Metals Investor Forum provides that opportunity.

Gold’s rally will revive the junior mining market, according to Brent Cook of Exploration Insights.
“We’ve seen some major moves and there are some fundamental reasons behind that move in the gold price that I think are set to continue,” he said.
Junior mining companies will be benefiting the most in the long term, he said, as mid-tier and major mining companies will look to juniors for more resources and “the potential for major discoveries.”
Cook said he prefers the mining space over the physical metal, particularly favoring mid-tier and junior exploration companies.

What Recent Rise in Gold Price Means for Mining Industry and Investors with Brent Cook (SNN Network)
In this Wall Street View, our host caught up with Brent Cook, Editor/Geologist of Exploration Insights to discuss rising gold prices, macro-outlook for resources, how politics affect gold prices, geopolitics and more!
"How many quality gold deposits truly exist?" is what Daniela Cambona asks when interviewing Brent Cook on the Beaver Creek Precious Metals Summit.
The gold mining sector faces a major challenge: overcoming dwindling economic reserves, said Brent Cook of Exploration Insights, and higher gold prices may not be what’s needed to keep miners in the black.
“The story is that we are going to run out of gold deposits. That’s not the case. What we are running out of is economic deposits, the discovery of economic deposits. There’s no shortage of marginal deposits or sub-economic deposits, and the question is, is the rising gold price going to fix all that or not?” Cook told Kitco News on the sidelines of the Precious Metals Summit in Beaver Creek.
Importantly, Cook noted his thesis is that 80% of deposits will be marginal at any price because they have fundamental flaws.

Gold is rising: Don't make this mistake ...

The gold price is on the rise, but Brent Cook, co-editor of Exploration Insights, wants investors to remember they still need to do their due diligence on exploration stocks.
"I think what we saw a couple years ago — we haven't seen it that much this year — but a company would put out a good drill hole, and the stock would double or triple or quadruple. And you'd see it ramped up in the chat rooms, the bulletin boards would be talking about it, and everybody would be excited about it," he said when asked about common mistakes.
"But they didn't do the due diligence to recognize what that drill hole really represented, whether it was a twin hole, whether it was smeared grade, whether the structure they were drilling was really small."
