"For some time, I have told my readers to keep a close eye on Zimtu Capital Corp., which provides a lot of leverage to the price of potash as it has been involved with the startup of some key potash companies. . .the company is a bargain now as it trades way below its cash value and is positioned well in the potash space."
The Gold Report Interview with Leonard Melman
"When we talked last time I spoke about Commerce Resources Corp. and Zimtu Capital Corp., which both share the same president, David Hodge. . .I have known Dave for quite a few years. He's been instrumental in helping numerous mining companies find the funding to advance projects. Commerce was one of those companies that has come a long way under his leadership. He's very active in the mining industry and very aware of developments. Through Zimtu, he has been a substantial positive influence, which has moved several projects a long way forward. . .Zimtu's business is advancing junior projects. What it does is accumulate an inventory of junior projects and then market them out to groups that look as if they're in a position to advance the projects. Zimtu has the capital available to acquire potential projects at rock bottom prices and build up the inventory of projects that can be farmed out to new sources of capital. The growing availability of new projects coming to market at discounted prices due to their owners' financial difficulties could enhance the workability of its game plan very substantially going forward."
The Metals Report Interview with Jeb Handwerger
"Zimtu Capital Corp. is an investment company that focuses on the early-stage startup, getting in early on unique properties and strategic metals. It understands the strategic metals space. It has a network of prospectors and geologists. It looks for commodity opportunities. Zimtu shareholders have exposure to a wide range of commodities. If one of the holdings is successful and advances, the net asset value of Zimtu increases. Another benefit of Zimtu is its access to seed-level financings usually only reserved for industry insiders. Zimtu gives investors diversified exposure to a basket of resources and companies at the ground-floor level, companies that are able to advance from the early stages to development and production. Its current portfolio includes exposure to graphite, niobium, REEs and precious metals. It is also investigating new materials, such as fluorspar. Zimtu is a good way to get diversification across a basket of strategic metals, without making a single concentrated bet on one company."
The Gold Report with Leonard Melman
"I enjoy Zimtu Capital Corp. in Canada. Its game plan is to fund early-stage companies with developable projects. By funding and forming new companies, it is able to offer its own investors a chance to participate in early-stage share offerings at an advantageous price before the IPO. When Zimtu funds a project it normally receives a substantial block of shares. If the general market environment goes up, then the asset values of Zimtu go up, and that should lead to increases in its share price. It is a good game plan and if the market environment for the whole junior mining sector improves, then Zimtu stands to profit substantially."
