New Gold (NGD): Delivering On Promises At El Morro, New Afton and Blackwater

New Gold (NGD) has one of the best resource growth profiles in the business with El Morro, New Afton and their recently acquired Blackwater Project in British Colombia where they just announced a measured and indicated resource of 7.1 million ounces of gold up 30%. In addition, the company met its June 2012 target of commencing production at its New Afton Mine in British Columbia. Finally, the Ontario Superior Court has ruled in favor of New Gold and Goldcorp continuing its partnership on one of the best undeveloped gold/copper projects in the world El Morro in Chile. New Gold owns 30% and is in a great position to benefit from this mine which is fully funded by their other cash flow positive operations. New Gold has delivered on its stated promises and has rewarded original GST subscribers of more than a 1,000% gain since highlighting it in May of 2009 outperforming the gold mining index and gold bullion by a wide margin.

Europe Desperately Needs This Junior Uranium Miner To Come Into Production

A recently completed Pre-Feasibility Study by Tetra Tech Consultants of Golden, CO demonstrates that this project could be one of the lowest cost producing uranium mines in the entire world, especially on the European continent which is hungry for product. Europe has only one currently operating uranium mine in the Czech Republic. There are 160 reactors with more under construction requiring an additional indigenous source of uranium. This uranium asset may provide a timely solution.

Why This Alaska Heavy Rare Earth Mine Is Unique

Recent headlines inform us that the Obama Administration has finally decided to increase pressures on China in the rare earth quandary by joining Japan and the EU in the case before the World Trade Organization. This may be a move motivated by the upcoming national elections as well as the pressures placed upon the President to say something or anything in response to Romney’s support of Bokan Mountain (Ucore) where he wrote an open letter to Alaskans emphasizing that their state is in the vanguard of America reclaiming rare earth independence.

Mining Giants Are Looking To Lockup Long Term Supply Of Uranium and Rare Earths

Global miner Rio Tinto announced that there were increasing risks of a supply shortfall in strategic metals. The majors are dealing with the rise of resource nationalism and rising permitting difficulties for new mines. Countries such as China, Indonesia, Namibia and Argentina among others have already expressed that they want a bigger slice of the pie adding export taxes and forex requirements. Recently one of our recent rare earth/uranium recommendations Pele Mountain announced an Updated PEA for its 100% owned Eco Ridge Mine Rare Earths and Uranium Project. The numbers are very compelling especially considering its dual advantage of potentially producing rare earths and uranium at a time where we may witness a supply shortfall in these metals. Already there are uranium mines operating at much lower grades than Eco Ridge's. With the growing rise of resource nationalism and the supply shortfall in critical rare earths and uranium, Pele's Eco Ridge seems to be a logical choice for majors desperate for new, economic, long life supplies of uranium and critical rare earths. The Ontario Province may see Elliot Lake as a strategic supplier of critical metals and uranium required for cheap and clean energy.

Why This Gold Miner Has Considerably Outperformed The Sector Since 2008

China is easing financial and fiscal policies for at least the first 6 months of this year. This action is letting the world financial markets know that carefully chosen mining equities are the place to be. China has flipped the “risk on”switch for precious metal equities. Inflationary forces, possibly gut wrenching are in the cards. The losers may well be the possessors of dollars and purportedly safe treasuries. This will be the impetus to move capital out of cash,treasuries and overvalued banks into mining equities and commodities.
