Sarah Palin busies herself with TV shows about Alaska, Junior gold miners are staking claims from Alaska to the Yukon as Gold prices head toward $1500 per oz and beyond.
Here we highlight one such stock, TNR Gold Corp.
Still a penny stock, TNR Gold Corp (TSX-TNR) (currently trading at .18 cents share) is certainly a speculative stock. Having said that, I believe TNR is a sleeper in the junior mining space.
The consolidation and M & A activity over the next year, in the junior mining space, coupled with the drive for copper, gold, lithium and Rare Earth properties, by the larger players in those spaces, makes TNR a juicy morsel, if you are so inclined to speculate (which we have - long TNR)
(Below -Mariana Lithium Project, Salta, Argentina )
Of significance for TNR, and for investors, is TNRs propensity to seek out promising properties in a number of precious metals such as Gold and Silver, as well as copper which are all in demand.
Their Lithium and rare earth properties are certainly well positioned to take advantage of the second leg of the lithium boom which is still in its infancy.
The fact that TNR is spinning off a wholly owned subsidiary to develop its new gold property at Shotgun Ridge, Alaska (Amerigold Inc formerly Briston Explorations Inc.) is another indication that TNR intends to increase shareholder value. (Subsidiaries can be acquired by larger players who may be interested in the property)
Another case in point is TNRs spinning off of International Lithium Corp (ILC) to increase shareholder value in its lithium properties in Argentina (lithium brine properties) and in Nevada (lithium clay properties).
Shareholders will actually own this company if they already hold TNR shares as TNR will issue 1 share and 1 warrant of ILC for every 4 shares of TNR stock held by shareholders at the time of the spinnoff (which is somewhat behind schedule at this writing, but expected early in the New Year).
Fish Lake Valley,
and Sarcobus Flats.
They are all good prospects for lithium extraction.
TNR also has a large, lithium pegmatite property in Leinster, Ireland as well as 5 lithium and Rare Earth properties in Canada which also show great promise.
The Canadian properties are at: Mavis Lake, Moose 2, Big Beaverhouse, Niemi Lake, and Forgan Lake.
TNR Gold has 8 mining claims and projects in three provinces of Argentina, operated by TNR's wholly-owned subsidiary, Solitario Argentina S. A. ("Solitario") (See above)
TNR's Eureka project is located in the Jujuy province while the others are located in San Juan and San Luis provinces. The map does not really do justice to the large gold and copper stakes owned by TNR and operated by SAS.
Here is an excerpt from a recent interview with Mike Seib, the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of TNR Gold Corp: with TWST:
-Q. What would compel an investor to review TNR
Gold and include it not only as part of his or her current portfolio,
but as part of a longer-term investment strategy?
Mr. Sieb: It’s increased valuation. The current restructuring
we’re undergoing right now will have a direct result in the
marketplace. We’re basically unlocking the value. Currently, with
one company, one entity with a multitude of projects, you don’t realize
the underlying value of the myriad of projects in the company,
and the complexity does not translate very well to the marketplace
or the shareholder. The current restructuring that we’re undertaking,
whereby we are setting up individually focused management teams
that are focused on fund-raising, exploration and advancement of
our various property portfolios into specific packages, will provide
direct benefits. I believe it’s going to very readily result in an unlocking
of our current value, and we’re going to be able to move not
only this company forward, but the companies that are derived or
get spun out of TNR Gold Corp.-
