I have been pounding the table for months believing we would have a general stock market high in September leading into a giant crash starting in October. And I believed there would be a liquidity event that would blast hell out of the "Everything Bubble."
It's here. I also suggested investors in resources get liquid in anticipation of shares going on the sales table by investors dumping at any price as the margin clerks began to call. I think that is here as well and I did my best to lighten up to free up some cash. Gold and silver have been correcting for the best part of a month and they are not finished yet.
Maple Gold Mines Ltd. (MGM:TSX.V; MGMLF:OTCQB; M3G:FSE) became a sponsor a month ago. I've been waiting for some important news or anything worth doing an article around and got it yesterday.
I do hope my readers understand the concept of leverage. If you are given the alternative of buying into either of two mining companies, one that can produce at $800 gold and one that would require $1200 gold. If you think gold is going to stay steady or go down, buy the company with the $800 gold. But on the other hand if you think gold is going a lot higher, buy the one with $1200 gold. You get far better leverage. A $200 move in gold makes them far more valuable than with the $800 an ounce producer.
Maple Gold is in the heart of Quebec with a 3.25 million ounce gold resource. An updated 43-101 is due this quarter. Over the life of the project more than $60 million CAD has been spent on drilling including a 6,000-meter drill program this year.
The President and CEO is Matthew Hornor who was VP for Ivanhoe for ten years. The management team largely is from Ivanhoe and highly experienced.
I could go more into the specifics of the company but they have done a fine job on the presentation and anyone interested should read it carefully. It's right up to date. As of the 30th of June, the company had $4.4 million over their obligations but since then cash has gone down to about $3.5 million CAD.
While I was searching around for a hook to do a story on, I casually looked at the price of the shares. I had bought some at $0.095 and was thrilled to get them. Yesterday I watched the price go down to $0.07. Remember, this was a $0.46 stock less than three years ago. The only things that have changed have changed for the better but bored shareholders have tanked the stock by 85%. I leapt on a bunch of shares at $0.07 because I can both add and subtract.
Yesterday the company had about a $16 million market cap with $3.5 million in the till. Convert to USD for simplicity, that's $13 million CAD enterprise value and $9.8 million USD with 3.25 million ounces. That is within spitting distance of $3 an ounce USD.
If you even like gold, you are never going to see a better deal than gold at $3 an ounce. There are only two things that can possibly happen. Gold goes to zero and "Bitcon" takes over the world, or we go into QE infinity and gold goes a lot higher.
Look for a lot higher gold. And a lot higher Maple Gold Mines shares. Management's only error has been to hide their light under a bushel. They need to let it shine.
Maple is an advertiser. I own a bunch of shares bought in the open market. Naturally I am biased so do your own due diligence. I share neither your profit nor your losses.
