  • 22 Jul 2014 - Canarc Resource Corp. - Brad Cooke applies the Endeavour business model at Santa Fe

    You are missing some Flash content that should appear here! Perhaps your browser cannot display it, or maybe it did not initialize correctly.


    Five months ago when we first spoke to Canarc's CEO Catalin Chiloflischi he outlined a new plan which was to copy the hugely successful business model of Bard Cooke's Endeavour Silver.

    On July the 15th, Canarc announced a deal where they become a ~35% shareholder in Santa Fe Gold, basically a $3 Musd investment that is already worth north of $8 Musd (to compare with Canarc's Mcap of roughly $15 Musd). The Canarc/Endeavour team will take over Santa Fe in terms of management and BoD positions, organize the re-financing of Santa Fe's Summit Mine and put their mining engineers, geologists etc. from Endeavour Silver at work to make sure the mine re-start is successful.

    To sum up, Canarc Resource are making Santa Fe Gold (OTCBB:SFEG) look like the turn-around story of 2014, while at the same time not taking on any financial risk or debt themselves. A win-win deal for all parties involved, shareholders of both companies included.

    At Gecko Research we like to follow the people, which in this case mean Catalin Chiloflischi and Brad Cooke. We currently have a position in Canarc Resouce Corp.

  • 20 Jun 2014 - Alder Resources - An Update with CEO Don Dudek

    You are missing some Flash content that should appear here! Perhaps your browser cannot display it, or maybe it did not initialize correctly.


    Alder Resources Ltd. has acquired the right to earn 65% interest in the past producing Rosita copper-gold-silver project in northeast Nicaragua, an area that is getting hotter and hotter as both IAMGold and B2Gold are present in the absolute proximity. With a Mcap of ~3 Mcad and only ~$0.6m left to spend before having earned its 65% interest, Alder Resources are soon in the driver's seat.

    Gecko Research were today able to talk to Don Dudek, CEO and Chairman of Alder, to get an update of the company's work and near term plans. Don explained how it's possible to start producing $16 Million worth of gold (+ copper and silver) by leaching old tailings, and this would only require an investment of ~1 Musd. The permitting and plant construction would in best case take around six months.

  • 23 Mar 2014 - Krassimir Petrov - One of the Original Gold Bugs

    You are missing some Flash content that should appear here! Perhaps your browser cannot display it, or maybe it did not initialize correctly.


    We can't emphasize enough how happy we are to publish today's interview with Mr. Krassimir Petrov, a believer in Austrian economics and one of the people who recognized this secular bull market in gold very early.

    Mr. Petrov has studied not only the ongoing cycle but also the history of earlier bull and bear markets in commodities. In today's interview, he talks extensively how these different events can be compared and therefore what we can expect in the next 10 years or so.

    Not only do we urge our readers to listen carefully to this interview, we would also like to encourage readers to visit Mr. Petrov's website and among other things, read his archived articles that still to this day is very educational and informative material.

  • 28 Feb 2014 - Canarc Resource - A Few Months Away from Becoming a Gold & Silver Producer

    You are missing some Flash content that should appear here! Perhaps your browser cannot display it, or maybe it did not initialize correctly.


    Canarc's newly appointed CEO Catalin Chiloflischi just announced a deal that has the potential to turn his company into a Mexican gold and silver producer within a very short time.

    Even though the open pit mine at La Cieneguita has been profitable for several years, the Canarc/Endeavour team are certain there are room for major improvements.

    When the merger is finalized, the plan is to make full use of Endeavour Silver's experience and expertise in order to optimize the operations and increase the production.

    At Gecko Research we like to follow the people, which in this case mean Catalin Chiloflischi and Brad Cooke. We currently don't have a position in Canarc but we follow the story closely.

    Eric Fier is one of the founders of SilverCrest and he is also the company's Chief Operating Officer. As he knows the company from the inside and out, we thought it was prudent to get the latest update from Eric himself.

    SilverCrest considers the area surrounding Santa Elena to be a mining district and we expect them to consolidate the area in the near term.

    You are missing some Flash content that should appear here! Perhaps your browser cannot display it, or maybe it did not initialize correctly.


    In a newsletter to subscribers, we made the case as to why we have taken a position in this Mexican/Peruvian focused exploration company. We have met CEO Jose Vizquerra in person before we made this interview. Jose, as well as the rest of the group of people involved in this company is one of the better set-ups we have come across.

    As we conducted this interview, BVL.TO has a Mcap of C$7.5 Million and cash in the amount of C$10.7 Million (bvl.to share price at C$0.085).

    The Company’s approach is to identify economic resources of 5 million-plus ounces of gold and gold equivalent at a cost of less than $20/ounce, within 4 years. Our focus is on greenfields exploration terrains using a systematic, tried and proven phased approach, and on mature terrains using innovative ideas.

    The Guaynopa project is located in Northern Mexico and demonstrates significant potential for high grade gold Skarn deposits in one of the most pro mining districts in the area. The project is easily accessible by roads and is located near established areas of supply for materials and workers. The Company has also staked over 25,090 ha in southern Peru in order to explore for high grade gold porphyry targets.

    Braeval Mining has a successful and experienced management and geological team in place dedicated to the discovery of world class deposits. The team will use exploration techniques that have led to the discovery of more than 40 million ounces in the past ten years, with the objective of adding to their successful track record.
