Source: Kevin Michael Grace of The Gold Report  (6/18/15)

Today, Atna has two producing mines—Briggs in California and Pinson in Nevada, with excellent prospects for expansion. Yet Atna shares can be had for only a dime. In this interview with The Gold Report, Hesketh explains how he intends to bring his company up to 100,000 ounces a year using primarily internal cash flow and how a rising gold price would reward investors with multiples.

Source: J. Alec Gimurtu of The Gold Report  (5/21/14)
All serious gold investors know the Carlin Trend of Nevada is one of the most prolific gold producing regions of the world. Is it possible that there is an undiscovered district, not just a deposit, within that region that was missed by the majors? Jon Awde, CEO of Gold Standard Ventures, discusses how spectacular drill results have guided Gold Standard Ventures to focus on creating the southernmost mining district of the Carlin Trend—the Railroad/Pinion District. At more than 40 square miles, the district is large enough to potentially sustain a mid-sized producer. In this interview with The Gold Report, Awde describes the unique challenges of proving up a series of deposits that are in the shadow of the majors and for the first time all combined under one company in a single mining district.

He considers nickel in 2014 one of the best commodity trades in a generation. To capitalize on this unique set of circumstances, Royal Nickel's Dumont Nickel Project follows the path of other large-reserve, large-scale mines in the copper and gold sectors that have changed the mining industry and made early investors fortunes.
