Gold & Silver Seeker Report: This Week in Mining Issue #23 – Silver Blast Off, Gold Nearing New All-Time High, and Countless Financings

This week saw higher metal prices with the mining stocks performing well. Silver had an incredible week, being up >$1/oz. for two consecutive days. Silver reached on all-time high and had its best week in a long time. Like two weeks ago, there were countless financings for junior stocks again this week, which are listed below. Earnings should start to be reported in two weeks or so. Some companies will report great numbers and others not so much, all depending on the impact of mining suspensions (if any) for every company. Regardless, Q3 numbers will be an absolute blow-out.


There was another round of financings this week as investor interest is very strong. This include:

  • Spanish Mountain Gold $5m private placement (PP) with Eric Sprott.
  • Leocor Ventures announced a $2.4m PP.
  • Boreal Metals announced a $2m PP.
  • Discovery Harbour Resources closed a fully subscribed $3m PP.

The Company will use the net proceeds from the offerings to build the Posse Gold Mine and advance the Lavras do Sul exploration project, both in Brazil, and for working capital and general corporate purposes. This equity financing secures the equity portion of financing for the construction of the Posse Gold Project. The rest, of course, will be financed via debt. Like so many financings lately, Eric Sprott is leading this. Eric Sprott and Baccarat Trade Investments Ltd have committed to and subscribed for the whole private placement.
