Almaden: Succeeding in a Tough Resource Market with World-Class Management and Gold-Silver Discovery
Source: JT Long of The Gold Report  (1/13/16)
With approximately $5.5 million in the bank, a 3.5-million-ounce gold equivalent Measured and Indicated resource, zero debt and a robust, updated preliminary economic assessment, Almaden Minerals Ltd. CEO Morgan Poliquin says the company is in position to not only survive this tough market but to continue adding significant value at a deep discount.
