Collective Mining’s (TSXV:CNL) maiden drilling program is advancing with the Box Target. The company has announced that it is mobilizing a second diamond drill rig to the Guayabales Project in Caldas, Colombia. This is a key part of its 7,500-metre maiden drill program that was recently started.

Collective is aiming to begin operating the new drill rig before the end of October, to target a grass-root generated large-scale and mineralized outcropping gold-rich porphyry system with the Box target area. 

Collective Mining (TSXV:CNL) has identified five major grass-root drill-ready target areas at the Guayabales Project in 2021. Box is one of the five targets at the flagship project for the junior exploration company headed by the former team at Continental Gold.

Executive Chairman of Collective Mining, Ari Sussman, commented on the news, “The deep penetrating, high resolution IP work when combined with our exploration data has been an effective targeting tool in defining multiple targets consisting of different mineralization styles at the Guayabales Project. As a result, the Company is now beginning a robust drill program to test our initial five targets over the balance of the year and into 2022. Importantly, we expect that initial assay results from drilling at the Donut target, which commenced in September, will be available prior to the end of October.”

Highlights (Table 1 and Figures 1 to 5)

  • The porphyry zone (“CPZ”) within the Box is a coincidental strong gold, silver, copper and molybdenum soil anomaly characterized by high-grade veins overprinting porphyry mineralization. In turn, the mineralization is situated directly within coincidental magnetic chargeability and resistivity geophysical anomalies typical of a porphyry system. 
  • The surface area for the CPZ at Box measures 500 metres by 400 metres and is open in all directions for expansion. 
  • The CPZ has returned channel and grab sampling from three different styles of mineralization; polymetallic veins, porphyry stockwork and disseminated sulphide. Samples for the high-grade veins returned a range of intercepts grading up to 14.8 g/t gold and 276 g/t silver. These high-grade veins are superimposed on porphyry veinlets, stockwork and disseminated sulphide mineralized systems with grades ranging from 0.4 g/t to 1 g/t gold with select results as follows:

The Guayabales Project is situated contiguous and immediately along strike and to the northwest of Aris Gold’s multi-million-ounce deposit. The Company interprets the abundant precious metal mineralization encountered throughout the Guayabales project to be related to multiple mineralized styles that include gold-copper-molybdenum porphyries and associated breccia as well as high grade, precious and base metal vein systems that are superimposed on and enrich the porphyry bodies.

Details

The CPZ within the Box is in the western portion of the Guayabales Project and is hosted within multiple porphyritic diorites which intrude into carbonaceous schist and siltstone country rocks. Previously, the Company announced channel and rock sample results from small porphyry and polymetallic vein outcrops within the Box target (see press release dated July 29, 2021). The Company has now undertaken extensive additional surface work and geophysical surveys at the Box target which define a central, mineralized porphyry zone, referred to as the impregnated zone and enveloped by high grade, polymetallic veins to the north, west and south of the porphyry body (see Figure 1).

The CPZ contains gold mineralized stockwork and sheeted vein systems hosting quartz-pyrite-molybdenite-magnetite-chalcopyrite assemblages that are associated with potassic alteration. The mineralized vein systems are coincident with soil anomalies for copper (>500ppm), molybdenum (>3ppm) and gold (>100 ppb) and cover an area of 500 meters by 400 meters. The mineralized porphyry system is impregnated by late stage polymetallic veins which host gold, silver, sphalerite, and galena sulphides. Located to the North and South of the porphyry zone are additional zones of polymetallic veins which fringe the main porphyry bodies and are associated with extensive sericite-chlorite alteration. The polymetallic veins locate within intersecting structures and have northeast, northwest and east-west orientations.

Outcrop exposure within Box is limited due to extensive landslides and colluvium cover. Geophysical surveys were therefore undertaken to assist in target definition and included airborne magnetics and a deep penetrating, ground IP survey. Three-dimensional modelling of all this data has highlighted the presence of a zone of chargeability highs associated with intermediate resistive bodies which are coincident with an intermediate magnetic anomaly. The geophysical anomalies demonstrate an excellent coincidence with the CPZ as defined by geological mapping, soil and rock sampling. The magnetic survey also highlights a clear, NE-SW trending structural corridor which is interpreted to have facilitated emplacement of the CPZ and vein systems in between the various country rocks.

Why Authoritarianism Must Prevail

Authored by Robert Wright via The American Institute for Economic Research,

Freedom anywhere is a threat to authoritarianism everywhere. That is why authoritarians must destroy all freedom and why liberty lovers, and even the merely “lib-curious” (liberty curious), must not just resist blatant authoritarianism, but reject it in all its guises. The fate of the nation, and the world, again hangs in the balance.

To the extent that any freedom persists, authoritarian diktat can be subverted, albeit at a cost. History is rife with examples of bizarre entities, like nonbank banks (I kid you not!), rent-a-banks (ditto!), and gold caches, designed to work around branching restrictions, usury laws (maximum interest rates), the criminalization of holding gold, and sundry other attempts to limit financial freedom. (See my Financial Exclusion for details.)

To squelch “undesirable” activity, like increasing bank competition, voluntarily lending/borrowing small amounts of money at rates commensurate with the attendant costs and risks, or trying to protect one’s family against fiat money inflation, government must outlaw the workarounds too. To get their way, statists must suppress all unapproved activities, which ultimately means forcing would-be innovators to obtain permission before they can lawfully engage in any new activities.

Consider, for example, recent calls to allow the IRS to monitor essentially all bank accounts in the country. Maybe Americans will accept it, if, as claimed, the power is only used to enforce current tax laws. But if tax rates rise appreciably, as it seems they will, given the current administration’s policy goals, or if the transaction information is used for partisan political purposes, or to shame or coerce people into buying this, or not buying that, Americans will begin to search for workarounds. To the extent that the workarounds prove successful, government will be forced to outlaw the workarounds too.

For instance, if workers ask their employers to pay them in Federal Reserve Notes or Bitcoin because they believe that the transaction costs of making payments in those media will be less burdensome than giving some party hack access to the most intimate details of their lives, the government may well force employers to pay workers only in USD and only via bank transfer. It might even ban cryptocurrencies entirely, or at least try to.

Workers might then make one payment per month, to a “bill paying service” that for a fee will pay their bills for them, out of its one, giant bank account. Oh, but that sounds like an unregulated bank taking uninsured deposits so those services will have to be suppressed as well, or perhaps replaced by the central bank.

People may then begin paying everything by credit card, and even direct their employers to repay their credit card issuers directly. Next thing you know Uncle Sam will want to see your credit card statements too. Ditto PayPal, Venmo, and any other fintech apps used to make or receive payments. Thus a seemingly innocuous request to see bank accounts for tax purposes becomes the excuse for full-blown financial repression. This will, as always, hurt the poor the most.

Employers might work around those laws, along with the tax code and vaccine mandates by converting their employees into volunteers and donating payroll to a nonprofit charity with the singular mission of ensuring that the “volunteers” receive “donations” that happen to match the value of their former compensation. Imagine the chaos if every employer simultaneously did that! Government would have to respond by tightly regulating, if not outright outlawing, charities and volunteer work. Our liberty would be truly lost at that point, and again the poor would suffer most.

Corporations shouldn’t be taxed, but they are. Many of the largest have engaged in (international) tax arbitrage by adroitly shifting headquarters, production facilities, and charters between different states, provinces, and countries. Governments are now fighting back by establishing a global minimum corporation tax. How long before some entity begins to offer oceanic or orbital (then moon, then Martian) charters as tax havens? Soon after, though, private space flight and oceanic colonization will likely be banned or heavily restricted.

Everyone should be aware that if an international gold ETF issuing bearer shares, Honeypot.xxx (a sex worker-owned substitute for OnlyFans), a parallel university system, or anything else of import that runs against the woke or statist grain begins to gain commercial traction, regulatory hammers will swiftly bludgeon the innovators into compliance, or out of existence.

Were that all! When statist solutions to perceived “problems” create real problems, the call inevitably goes out for yet more government. When pressed about how to pay for UBI (various universal basic income) schemes, for example, schemes that are purportedly needed to solve a nearly nonexistent income disparity “problem,” proponents will sometimes argue for the establishment of a Sovereign Wealth Fund (SWF, or a giant investment fund owned by a government), the dividends and realized capital gains of which can be divided equally among the citizenry. 

UBI proponents are not sure where the money to fund the SWF will come from, or if it is a good idea to concentrate all that economic and political power in one decision maker’s hands, but if you want to see their true colors, ask them why individuals cannot simply invest their own money for themselves. Turns out that elites believe that most Americans don’t know how to invest properly, in the “right” (which is to say Left) companies. So look for a push to outlaw individual investment in favor of a SWF-funded UBI, or at least a narrowing of choice to SEC-approved ESG funds. You may still own something in 2030, but it seems increasingly unlikely you will be happy.

America and the rest of the West have been sliding down the slippery slope of statism for so long that they are now rapidly approaching the precipice that ends in rock bottom. Will liberty be crushed and a new dark age commence? Or will the masses then finally see governments as the problem, rather than as the solution?

Hawkish Powell Hits Stocks; Bitcoin Flat As Breakevens, Bond Yields & Bullion Bounce

A very mixed week across the asset-classes.

Hawkish Powell: rate-hike expectations surged higher but stocks gained, crude rallied but copper tumbled. Growth and Value stocks basically ended the week up around the same amount (while Cyclicals modestly outperformed Defensives). Perhaps most notably, rates vol and stock vol expectations are dramatically decoupled from one another.

Inflation: Breakevens soared to record highs… globally, bullion bounced but bitcoin ended the week unchanged and bonds only modestly higher in yield.

Source: Bloomberg

We do not that the long-end of the curve notably outperformed today (flattening the curve significantly) after Powell’s comments, in a clear signal from the market that it’s expecting a Policy error

Source: Bloomberg

Arguably, as Goldman details below, the market could be morphing back from a ‘stagflation’ narrative to a ‘reflation’ narrative

Heading into the week, the ‘stagflation’ narrative was continuing despite the fact that the S&P 500 had already bounced off of its late-September bottom and was heading back towards an all-time high.  And as we exit the week, the inflation debate seems to be evolving into a ‘the Fed will hike earlier’ narrative, with yields on 2-year Notes spiking to 0.50% — a level last seen in the first days of the pandemic way back on March 18, 2020.  Praveen Korapaty writes in last Friday’s note, “Front-end pressures mount,” that markets appear to have returned to a paradigm of simultaneously bringing forward and/or accelerating hike pricing and taking down terminal rate assumptions. Bond investors appear to be increasingly thinking that the rise in inflation that we have been observing will translate into an earlier Fed funds rate hike.

And yields on 10-year Treasuries also briefly touched 1.70% this week, suggesting that bond investors are actually also feeling fine about longer-term growth.  And this better feeling is also being reflected in stock prices with the S&P 500 breaking up above 4500 and hitting a new all-time high this week.  So, the ‘stagflation’ narrative seems to be morphing back into a ‘reflation’ narrative — something similar to what we were experiencing when the economy first ‘reopened’ last spring.

Digging into each asset class, stocks ended the week higher overall (despite today’s Powell-driven dip that sent Nasdaq down around 1% today)…

The S&P and Dow closed at record weekly closing highs…

In Canada, the S&P/TSX Composite is up 13 straight days to a new record high – the longest winning streak since 1985…

The newly launched Bitcoin (futures) ETF (BITO) ended below its opening level…

Commodities were very mixed with copper clubbed and silver soaring (gold and crude also rallied)…

Rather interestingly, the huge divergence between copper and silver occurred at a key resistance level (around 20 ounces of silver to buy copper)

Source: Bloomberg

Finally, we note Mizuho’s warning of the impact of today’s more hawkish speech from Fed chair Powell. Our view that the divergence of equity implied vol (at pre-pandemic lows) from rates implied vol (rising to the highs of the year in most markets) is unsustainable, is showing tentative signs of turning.

Source: Bloomberg

The sharp move lower in Nasdaq futures and widening of CDS indices is a warning shot, we feel, of how risk assets would break down if the Fed was to try to stamp out inflation at such an early point in the cycle as mid 2022.

Commodities relative to stocks are starting to flash some red alerts…

And if one needed an excuse to buy some protection against that whiplash reality check for stocks, VIX is at a critically cheap level relative to VXV…

That has not tended to end well for stocks.

Top Mining Small Caps To Watch Right Now

Are mining juniors on your watchlist right now?

Are These Mining Penny Stocks on Your Watchlist in October?

Mining penny stocks have become extremely popular over the last year or so. And, there are a few main reasons why that is the case. For one, mining stocks tend to be more stable than most others, as their trajectories are less affected by speculation. While this is more true with blue-chip mining stocks, it is also the case with mining penny stocks.

[Read More] 3 Biotech Penny Stocks to Watch That Are Climbing Right Now 

In addition to this, many investors have turned to mining stocks this year as a way to avoid the ups and downs of the stock market as a result of Covid. Specifically, gold stocks are highly popular as they present a ‘safeguard’ investment against inflation and market volatility. Historically, gold has been a mainstay in the market during times of economic trouble. And while we are emerging from the pandemic right now, investors are still uncertain about the future. 

As a result, mining stocks remain very popular right now. As we continue to move into the end of the year, it’s worth keeping an eye on the demand for resources such as gold, silver, and other popular mined ores. This will help to illustrate how these stocks could perform in the future. With that in mind, let’s take a look at three mining penny stocks to watch right now. 

3 Mining Penny Stocks to Watch Right Now

  1. IAMGOLD Corp. (NYSE: IAG
  2. Yamana Gold Inc. (NYSE: AUY
  3. B2Gold Corp. (NYSE: BTG

IAMGOLD Corporation (NYSE: IAG)

IAMGOLD Corporation is a mining penny stock that has climbed by over 30% in the past month with 5% of that occurring in the last five days alone. This company develops, explores for, and operates gold mining properties. These properties are located in the Americas and West Africa. Its mines include the Rosebel mine, Essakane mine, and Westwood mine among many others. In addition to gold, the company also searches for silver and copper as well.

On October 19th, the company provided its preliminary operating results for the third quarter of 2021. All of IAMGOLD’s mines reported positive results during this period. Its Essakane mine had an average recovery of 83 percent at 3.3 million tons. Additionally, the Rosebel and Westwood mines provided positive results for the company as well.

“We achieved attributable production of 153,000 ounces during the third quarter and are pleased that our total attributable production is trending towards the upper end of the guidance range. Essakane continues to deliver strong results and Rosebel is performing in line with the updated plan.”

Gordon Stothart, the President, and CEO of IAMGOLD

Right now, many investors are turning to gold and mining stocks in general as a way to hedge bets against inflation. And as a popular gold stock, IAG could be worth looking into. Considering this, does it deserve a spot on your penny stocks watchlist?

Penny_Stocks_to_Watch_IAMGOLD_Corp._(IAG_Stock_Chart)

Yamana Gold Inc. (NYSE: AUY)

Yamana Gold Inc. is another gold stock that has been moving up in the last few trading sessions. While its 8% gain over the past month is not as large as IAG’s, it is still substantial considering the relative stability of mining stocks. This company produces various precious metals in the United States however, its primary focus is on the production of gold. Silver is also a big market for Yamana, which it searches for at its development stage properties, exploratory sites, and land positions.

The most recent Yamana update was released on October 4th. The company announced that it will reveal its third-quarter operating and financial results after the market closes on October 28th, 2021. The next day, at 9 a.m. EDT, a conference call and webcast will be held. The financial results of Yamana Gold could have a big impact on its stock price if either positive or negative results are reported. This is something we see with most stocks, and for that reason, financial reports are always important to consider. 

The price of AUY stock is not just dictated by how the company is performing though. The prices of gold and silver are also major contributors to whether AUY stock will move up or down. It seems as though it is a balance between the price of gold, speculation, and the fundamentals when it comes to AUY stock. This is why it is important to stay up to date with the latest in the market. For now, will AUY stock be on your list of penny stocks to watch in October?

Penny_Stocks_to_Watch_Yamana_Gold_Inc._(AUY_Stock_Chart)

B2Gold Corp. (NYSE: BTG)

B2Gold Corp. is one of the bigger recent gainers, pulling in over 26% in gains in the past month. As its name suggests, this company primarily produces gold however, it also searches for other precious metals as well. Currently, B2Gold has three operating mines in Mali, the Philippines, and Namibia. Additionally, B2Gold has other evaluation and exploration assets located in Uzbekistan, Finland, Burkina Faso, and more. It’s worth noting that the company also has an 81% interest in the Kiaka Project.

On October 19th, B2Gold Corp. reported its gold production and gold revenue from the third quarter and first nine months of 2021. The company’s total gold production for the quarter was 310,261oz, which is 7% higher than its budget. This number is also 18% higher than its third-quarter 2020 numbers. Based on its positive performance, the company’s annual production guidance range has been increased to 1,015,000 to 1,055,000oz.
