ive been doing reading/analysis and ive come to the conclusion to sell as much as i have - those w/ profits to lock in; those w/ loss to minimize.

something is making me get this feeling the recession is not over. for a while ive been in cave man mode trying to ride it out. i think the ground hog has seen its shadow and the party we observe today wont last.

ive been wanting to get "quality" name stocks like GE, MO, etc... i think i will have a great chance in the next two or three years. as for PMs. i am not sure. the juniors we hold will probably follow stocks in general - esp those that need financing. those more tied to the action of physicals it all depends on POG and POS. we will probably be be in another round of whiplash but for those with true conviction and holds on - things will be ok*

* ok means if you dont need to sell.

I believe we should buy stocks that have a good upside. At this point we need to understand that any mining company with a good balance sheet and a mill almost ready to go is our best investment. We are on the verge of seeing a huge up-swing in pm's and if a mine has been milling it's low grad in the past and leaving the high grade for the further price movement then this is a mine worth investing in. There are not many out there so we need to do some D&D on this forum and come up with the best mining companies who have little or no dept (hedging) and the only one I can think of is CZN. With a mine ready for production and money invested into a gold producer and NO DEPT it looks safe for future up swing in stock price.
Their are others but we need to find them and build the best portfolio possible. Here is a link to some good info on picking the best venture/mines out there.

Also some good knowledge from Financial Sense:

If anyone has more to add it will mean a lot to this forum.

Tks.

On a quick note, I am a share holder in CZN and would like to point out that...
"Minister of Finance Flaherty announced $11 million over two years "to accelerate the review process for resource projects in the North." in this year's budget."

This is a good thing were much needed money will be invested into places like MVRB in the NWT across to the east in Newfoundland.

http://mfajuniormining.marketforceanalysis.com/

• Have (or have the potential to have) multi-million ounce deposits (“elephant” hunters)
• Have experienced management
• Have skilled geologists
• Be attractively priced for the resources discovered or likely to be discovered
• Have low or no debt
• Have sufficient cash to operate or high probability can raise sufficient cash
• Operate in a low political risk country that is mining friendly

Many investors think that if they have a choice between two highly attractive junior miners the best one is the one with the lowest stock price. The value is best determined by an analysis of what the effective price is for the company’s resources.

For example:
Company A
Stock price: $1
Market cap: $100 Million (i.e. 100 million shares issued)
Resources: 5 Million ozs gold
Value of gold: 100/5= $20/oz of gold in the ground

Company B
Stock price: $0.50
Market cap: $200 Million (i.e. 400 million shares issued)
Resources: 5 Million ozs gold
Value of gold: 200/5= $40/oz of gold in the ground

Company A is a much better investment based on how many resources ounces your money is buying.
Ideally the resources should be selling for tens of dollars per resource ounce to offer good appreciation potential...

CZN is "tainted" because many investors put money into them expecting Prairie Creek to "do something". It may be undervalued as such, but they're not getting a second look from me unless I see some very attractive numbers in a concise format

CZN can not do anything with their mine and I see this as a good thing. There are far too many producers today extracting the high grades in order to look good on their reported income, but they are selling their resources at a time when metal prices are bouncing off the bottom. I think it was Rob McEwen or James Dine who said; Look for a mine producer who is extracting it's low grade now and wait for the metal prices to rise before extracting the high grade.
The only reason I'm using CZN as an example is because it is my largest holding and i watch them closely. Not that I am trying to pump the stock but rather I'm trying to understand what is the best investments out there in the mining world. So when, in good timing, the movement of metal prices do go to the moon we will be in the best position to profit from it and from what I gather according to the criteria mention above, Czn seems to fit.

• Have (or have the potential to have) multi-million ounce deposits (“elephant” hunters)
Czn has over 60 million ounces of silver ready to be extracted +, with high grade zinc.

• Have experienced management..... I see they do...

http://www.canadianzinc.com/content/about/management.php

• Have skilled geologists
Mr. Taylor has over 25 years experience in the mineral exploration industry and is a qualified P.Geo. with a Masters degree in Geology. He previously worked with Cominco, Imperial Metals Corporation, GSC, OGS, along with numerous other junior companies throughout the world. He is a member of the GAC, CIM, BC & NWT Chamber of Mines and is presently also a Director of Sunrise Minerals (TSX).

• Be attractively priced for the resources discovered or likely to be discovered
I think it's a buy at today's prices! TSX.TO=.46 CZICF.OB=.45 CZICF.PK=.77

• Have low or no debt
They had so much money coming into 2009 that they acquired stocks in
VATUKOULA GOLD MINES.
http://www.canadianzinc.com/docs/NR040909.pdf

http://www.vgmplc.com/

• Have sufficient cash to operate or high probability can raise sufficient cash
"As at December 31, 2009, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $5.197 million, short term investments of $2.246 million and marketable securities of $15.382 million, for a total of $22.825 million. The Company also had a positive working capital balance of $22.476 million."

http://www.canadianzinc.com/docs/NR32910Q4.pdf

• Operate in a low political risk country that is mining friendly

If it wasn't for the "Dum Num Band" the mine would be in production today but I see this as a good thing as I mentioned above.

In a letter sent to Mr. Alistair MacDonald (Senior Environmental Assessment Officer of MVEIRB) on February 6 2009, by Honorable Nick G Sibbeston of the Senate;
"I am writing with respect to the current process ... They (Czn) have also worked their way through permitting and licensing processes, which have often been delayed unduly by the interventions of southern environmental groups..."

We can see clearly that even the government is putting pressure on the Mackenzie Valley Environmental Impact Review Board to push this mine into production.

I hope the answers you're looking for are addressed here Stubdkr, if not, I would be glad to see what constituted a better mine in the short/mid-term.

PS, I can't find the letter from Mr. Sibbeston on the web but if requested I can post it in Pdf.

There is still that risk that the company will have to play whack a mole with all those lilliputian enviro groups who can tie down CZN like a clumsy Gulliver. Who is funding these groups? I think of Gabriel Resources going up against the best that Soro's NGO's can muster. I see them doing the same sociological studies that Gabriel has had to do. I think there are going to be a lot of grateful sociologists driving late model Acuras before this is done.

I do believe they are past the point of "wack a mole" with czn because of all the new venture companies taking the spotlight up in the NWT. There is increasingly more companies involved in exploiting hydro, gold, REE'S...ect... that they see czn as a losings battle or should I say a battle they have won and with their limited resources, (layer's, time is money) the small group of people apposing czn will/have moved on.

Sorry for taking so long to reply jvj, but i don't like giving too much info over the web because i am still buying stock in dips. I own more then 50k in czn and see it going much higher. I also own stocks elsewhere in Canada that have had much growth like (I will PM you if you want to know).

As we move forward, it will become apart that investing in Canada is safer then investing in companies that have operations in earth-quack prone countries and countries that are so indebted there will be huge increase in royalties. I truly believe that we are in the end times (5 years or less) and building wealth is only part of God's plan to help us relocate with others... soon, in a year or two.

PostSubject: Yesterday's Top Story   Sat Oct 09, 2010 12:08 am

Yesterday's Top Story: Don’t sell rising gold and silver juniors too soon – old peaks not even neared.

With many stocks now hitting 12 month highs looking at charts with only a 1 year horizon is providing little insight. So, we are now looking at charts with a 5 year time horizon, why? Do you remember the big rise in the shares of the juniors back into May 2006? We want to go back and use these prices and charts going forward.

PostSubject: Stronger rules   Tue Oct 19, 2010 9:16 pm

Stronger rules urged for Canadian mining companies working abroad


"We think it's well-intentioned but we think it's got a number of unintended consequences," he said."It could damage the global competitiveness and reputation of the Canadian mining industry. If the House of Commons passes a bill like this, they send a message that they've lost confidence in their country's own mining industry."

Toby Connor on Goldseek.com put out an interesting chart that deserves our attention.
"I would suggest if one has retirement funds still invested in the stock market they get them out and back into a money market at this time until we see just how far down the market drops as it moves into the yearly cycle trough."

http://news.goldseek.com/GoldSeek/1294755795.php

I will put the profit into bullion (Sprott) seeing its already in Canadian dollars and not in USD.
