Your comments are 100% accurate, Karld. (See entry on 12/05/18 below). I’ll add a couple more. Additional comments always interesting and welcomed.

Read their financial statements and check required government filings for accuracy. For Original Sixteen to One Mine, ours are available on the federal Securities Exchange Commission for decades and recently on the website. Only one of the five companies mentioned below have actual gold production. I doubt that 20% of the listed junior companies ever mine gold. Their golden wish is for a major company to take them over. It happens but percentage wise, a rare event.

Another 100% characteristic of exploration companies is their attraction from gold gurus and analysts. Many writers/journalists will make the statement that they hold no shares of the company under review; true, but Aunt Margaret or Uncle Gus do. I actually read drilling results sometimes. Rarely do they tell me valuable information useful for evaluating the possibilities of successfully mining gold. Never do these sharks detail actual costs or time expended before production. There is one exception that I discovered. I actually bought into this Company.

It’s all still good. Many benefits arise from junior gold operations. You know what? With a little tweaking of specifics, these same comments can be said in many other industries; my ongoing motto: Truths like Gold lie at the Bottom.

The theme of those companies below, and most canadian-listed explorers, is (1) Political risk, (2) longshots, and (3) diluting the shares while the Corporate Officers drill on moose pasture and hope to get lucky. (Meanwhile, they get really good at mining the pockets of investors with salaries, travel expenses and sweetheart share grants and Private Placements. (How is that for a summary of Canadian Exploration stocks?)

Fred, your interest and intuitions are appreciated. Here’s a short story.

Since 1974, when my attention was first aware of gold, a plethora of related articles surfaced. The early ones are fascinating with concern about America’s gold holdings at Fort Knox, wild expectations and speculations. A significant factor that no longer exists today was the human. Humans were called “gold-bugs” and the phrase “gold fever” was popular. Gold fever usually implied negativity, a condition, like the portrayal of the 49’ers panning for gold in California’s northern rivers, streams and creeks. Whoopee! Eureka! My thirst is satisfied. I found gold!
Gold ownership and pricing was a new financial reality, not possible for Americans until December 31, 1974. It was exciting. Only the “old-timers” understood this change that began in 1933, when federal legislation eliminated us to own gold. They knew gold held some very special values.
California was a hot-bed of mining talk. Most of us had zero experiences with gold but the possibilities for gold, well, were still alive. California has the Mother Lode, the Northern Mines also called the Father Lode and truly a golden history that some treasured or disdained.
Gold received a lot of publicity, appealing to pro and against advocates. Does Brea X ring a bell? The true miners for gold were less than the paper miners, a condition that will never fade. It has a history as it does in other financial pursuits.
I remain ex[posed to a variety of gold stuff. Following is a glimpse of investment analysis from an email only edited to eliminate the names of the “Best Junior Gold Stocks of 2018”. I’ll comment after you read about them and read your comments.

“With the year nearly over and done, we rounded up the five best junior gold stocks on the TSXV by share price performance so far this year. All received high levels of investor interest in 2018, with the biggest gainer being up more than 700 percent year-to-date. Following is the selection.
ONE: gold exploration company with assets in the Central African Republic (CAR),
TWO: company that focuses on identifying, acquiring and advancing early stage projects with big potential.
THREE: exploration company with focus on advancing precious metals projects
FOUR: company that caught the eye of investors when it announced it would be completing $3 million private
FIVE: large land position in the mining region of Venezuela’s Bolivar state. “
