Episode 56: Gold Miners ETF and porphyry primer ft. Atac CEO
This week we continue our copper theme with a well-time "porphyry primer" on the Geology Corner. Lesley discusses the history of porphyry geological models and discovery. We also dig into block-cave mining, and what challenges, and associated new technologies, might lay ahead for copper miners and explorers.
Meanwhile, Matt drills into an announcement by Vector Index Solutions (MVIS) surrounding "significant methodology change to the MVIS Global Junior Gold Miners Index (MVGDXJ)." We cover a few analysts notes on the topic, and look into the proposed changes.
Matt also sits down with president and CEO of Atac Resources (TSXV: ATC; US-OTC: ATADF), Graham Downs, to talk about the company's recent option agreement with major Barrick Gold (TSX: ABX; NYSE: ABX) on its expansive Rackla gold project in the Yukon territory.
The transactions consist of a potential total investment by Barrick of approximately $63.3 million, which includes a private placement of $8.3 million and a two staged, $55 million exploration earn-in option to acquire up to 70% of the Orion Project.
