Note the action on American Eagle Gold Corp. (AE:TSXV) with a print just a penny below the all-time high at CA$0.50 on 618,176 shares volume on a day when everything was in the red. I continue to pound the table on this issue as the NAK discovery is real and big. I was hoping for a return to the low-$0.30's to add to holdings, but I suspect we are about to see new highs probably by tomorrow.
If you like copper and you like gold, this is a micro-cap version of the Freeport trade. Owning a new discovery and a big one that contains the classic copper-gold porphyry signature in a part of Canada famous for world-class porphyry discoveries gives you exposure to the only two metals that have yet to have a speculative spike. The set-up for this trade is nothing short of superb.
Drilling starts again in May, and I think that if we get a surge in copper prices north of US$4.15/lb. in February-March, the drumroll you will hear into drilling season for AE:TSXV will be deafening.
Looking back to the original placement we did last January, I traded the stock like a blind chihuahua, exiting my position at a loss; we exited the hold period.
However, it took me no time at all after the early January release of drill hole NAK23-17 to put it back on the Buy list at CA$0.35 on the afternoon of the release. We got filled a few days later when it actually closed at CA$0.33 and are now in a 50% position (300,000 shares), looking to add another 300,000 shares into any weakness that shows up in February.
New instructions for this trade:
- Buy an additional 50% AE:TSXV at CA$0.40
