    Gold $1800 Likely before Next Upward Move says Pro Mining Investor David Erfle

    Gold $1800 Likely before Next Upward Move says Pro Mining Investor David Erfle

    In this interview pro mining investor David provides his commentary on the gold price and junior gold stock sector. David sees gold likely correcting down to around the $1800 level before the next upward move. David Erfle is a self-taught mining sector investor. He stumbled upon the mining space in 2003 as he was looking to invest into a growing sector of the market. After researching the gains made from the 2001 bottom in the tiny gold and silver complex, he became fascinated with this niche market. So much so that in 2005 he decided to sell his home and invest the entire proceeds from the sale into junior mining companies. When his account had tripled by September, 2007, he decided to quit his job as the Telecommunications Equipment Buyer at UCLA and make investing in this sector his full-time job. David founded the Junior Miner Junky subscription-based newsletter in April, 2017 and writes a weekly column for precious metals news service Kitco.com, whose website attracts nearly a million visits every day.

    Urban Miner Ben Davis Begins Supplying Platinum & Palladium to Clean-Tech First-Mover Regenx

    Urban Miner Ben Davis Begins Supplying Platinum & Palladium to Clean-Tech First-Mover Regenx

    Regenx Tech Corp. is a precious metals recovery first-mover in the USA with near-term cashflow. Regenx has a joint-venture with “urban miner” Ben Davis of Davis Recycling in Johnson City, TN. The joint-venture is 55% Regenx and 45% Davis Recycling. Davis Recycling will be supplying Regenx with spent diesel catalytic converters (CC).

    Regenx has proprietary clean technology which it is employing at its plant in Tennessee to recover platinum and palladium from used diesel CCs. Historically, smelting has been the dominate commercial method to recover Pd and Pt from used CCs. But smelters have a limited capacity, are environmentally hazardous and now refuse to accept diesel CCs due to the processing inefficiencies they create. This opens up a projected US$39.3 billion per year used diesel CC market by 2025.

    Regenx is poised to capitalize on the massive opportunity in the used diesel CC market via its processing and supply chain competitive advantages. First, Regenx has, via its proprietary technology, an ability to precipitate Pt and Pd into concentrate and recover about 90% of the metals in an environmentally-friendly manner. Second, Regenx has an exclusive partnership with Davis Recycling which will provide more spent diesel CCs than the company will initially be able to process.

    Regenx is currently building its commercial plant in Tennessee after proving the effectiveness of its technology in Vancouver. The pilot plant serves to optimize the scaling up to commercial production of eventually 10 tpd. Regenx is currently completing module one of a four module build-out over the next year. Commercial production from module one is expected to begin within a couple months. First year free cashflow to Regenx should be over US$10mm after all four modules are up and running. After the first plant is up and running the company plans to expand its processing capacity at its initial plant and then build and operate multiple plants throughout North America. Regenx is also seeing commercial interest out of Europe for its technology. Furthermore, Regenx is investigating how its business might generate carbon credits as a secondary form of revenue.

    Prospera Energy: Small-cap Worth a BIG BET (Investment Thesis Overview)

    Prospera Energy: Small-cap Worth a BIG BET (Investment Thesis Overview)

    Bill Powers (Mining Stock Education) and Shubham Garg (White Tundra Investments) each placed big bets on Prospera Energy. They did so independently of each other but come together in this show to share why they are bullish on the company. Neither Bill nor Shubham has received compensation from Prospera. Both are investors in the company. Shubham will be a strategic partner for both engineering support and business development initiatives moving forward.

    Listen to CEO Samuel David and VP Finance Chris Ludtke explain Prospera Energy’s investment thesis in this episode. For the past two years Prospera has been in restructuring as legacy debts and non-compliances have been largely resolved. During this period, the team has grown production from 80 bpd to 1,250 boepd and reduced production costs from C$60/barrel to under C$40/barrel. They believe that in the next 2-3 years they can reduce production costs to possibly under C$20/barrel and achieve 10,000+ boepd by optimizing current assets and through strategic acquisitions. The company has about 400 million barrels of oil in place. And Prospera’s core assets in Saskatchewan and Alberta had previously, during peak oil times when they were being fully developed by multinational oil companies, already saw production of over 10,000 boepd. The company has the facilities to accommodate over 10,000 boepd.

    Bill Powers placed a big bet on $PEI.v with his own cash at an average cost basis of about C$.08/share. His time horizon is about 2-3 years from now for this investment to yield the (outsized) returns he expects. He was not compensated to feature Prospera Energy on MSE. Do not purchase shares of Prospera because Bill did. Do your own due diligence. Prospera Energy’s cautionary forward-looking statement also applies to the content written below and the information discussed in my interview.

    Fury Drills Multiple Zones of High-Grade Gold at the Hinge Target including 22.77 g/t Gold over 1.5m

    Fury Drills Multiple Zones of High-Grade Gold at the Hinge Target including 22.77 g/t Gold over 1.5m

    Fury Gold recently provided results for the final three 2022 core drill holes at the Eau Claire project located in the Eeyou Istchee Territory in the James Bay region of Quebec. The 2022 drill program successfully expanded the high-grade gold mineralized footprint at the Hinge Target, Gap Zone, and eastern expansion target areas. To date, the eleven holes drilled into the Hinge Target have had a hit rate of nearly 55% above the Eau Claire underground measured and indicated resource grade of 6.3 g/t gold and over 80% above the underground cut-off grade of 2.5 g/t gold. Collectively, these results have provided a clear focus for deposit expansion moving forward into 2023.

    Drill hole 22EC-059 was drilled oblique to all other drilling at the Hinge Target (at an angle of 150 degrees) and provides confirmation of the current geological interpretation. The hole intercepted eight zones of gold mineralization across 350 metres (m) drilled width including 1.50m of 22.77 g/t gold, 1.50m of 15.30 g/t gold and 1.50m of 6.46 g/t gold. The reported intercepts extend the gold mineralization and represent a 100m offset to the west and 150m vertical offset of the defined shallow 850 Zone within the Hinge Target. Notably, the reported intercept of 1.50m of 22.77 g/t gold at a downhole depth of 181.5m, approximately 155m below surface, is one of the shallowest high-grade intercepts to date within the Hinge Target zone.

    "Fury is pleased to announce the final drill results from our 2022 drill program at Eau Claire, as these results further confirm our thesis that the Eau Claire resource is open for significant expansion. Importantly, we have extended the mineralized footprint of the resource at the Hinge Target, Gap Zone, and eastern expansion, and have intercepted substantial gold grades at the Percival Main zone, located 14 km from Eau Claire, which warrant follow-up work," commented Tim Clark, CEO of Fury. "The results of our program at Eau Claire are extremely encouraging and our 2023 plans are being reviewed and will be announced in the coming weeks."

Unhappy Walker ,

First rate mining stick info

I love giving a CEO or industry expert a chance to speak his/her mind and that is what Mining Stock Education podcast provides. Host Bill Powers often has skin in the game. We should look at the interviews as a starting point for an investment idea, not the final authority. That said, i learn A LOT from his interviews.

Mining stock edu great - politics, not so much

Love hearing from experts in mining and mining stock investment. Wish the amateur political opining could be edited out - that kind of content is abundantly available elsewhere.

street band ,

Great Podcast

Bill, enjoy your show and have learned a lot. Your guests provide exceptional education in the natural resource sector. With the exception of CT who whines and complains but doesn’t provide much usable investment information. Keep up the good work.
