I just finished a busy two weeks of meetings with the top CEO's of producing
miners listed on the major exchanges and major VC funds in mining and metals down here in South Florida and in Toronto.
I am attempting to rest and absorb two weeks of meetings and information and
distill the important points to be able to share with you over the coming weeks.
These big boys are looking at the juniors I have highlighted for years.  Some of the favorites at the conferences were once hardly known when they were featured on my website at a fraction of the price but now they reach center stage and I applaud from the distance as we have seen quintuples. It was nice to see many of our companies
featured as top performers on TSX and OTCQX indices.
 Now as they revel in their success, I go back to the drawing board and once again look for commodities and juniors not yet known to the general public and are still far away from the front page of the mining journals.  That is when they are still cheap and have the ability to still see a quintuple or ten bagger.  That is why I like this business for the upside potential and the ability to make large gains.  For many weeks I highlighted a commodity that was hitting 5 year highs and is still relatively unknown especially amongst the most important group of investors...US Retail.  While gold and silver are still way below 2011 highs, zinc is breaking out into new 5 year highs.  The last time it made a breakout like this pre credit crisis it went parabolic to $2.  There is the possibility of that happening again.   If it does a huge Zinc Deposit in Canada I highlighted to you a few weeks ago could soar as it has billions of pounds of zinc and they are about to publish a PEA any day now which will put numbers on the economics of this project and answer some questions about the metallurgy.  It could silence a lot of the naysayers and competitors.  The Chairman is a winner with a track record of building major mining companies from pennies.   Some of the smartest mining investors such as Lundin and Mcewen financed this company.  They just recently started marketing for the first time in the US in early February when it traded record volume but has since pulled back to its 50 DMA providing what could be a secondary buypoint.  I expect a lot more attention for this company following the publication of its updated Preliminary Economic Assessment.  See my interview with the Chairman of $DBL.V $DNLYF by clicking here... In addition, I have made my second zinc investment in a newly restructured company focused in one of the worlds best zinc domains Ireland with only around 33 million shares outstanding.  Its led by a great bunch of explorers I have known for years who specialize in zinc exploration and mining.  The CEO worked for one of the largest zinc producers for years in exploration.  He knows what the majors look for.  Management has the ability to raise a lot of money for exploration as some of the big funds have invested in some of there other major discoveries in Europe. Ireland is the largest producer of zinc in Europe and tenth in the world with over 200k tonnes of zinc mined in 2015.  Management believes Ireland is one of the best places to explore for a zinc discovery using modern exploration techniques.  There have been 222 holes drilled which indicate a large zinc mineralized zone with grades up to 10% zinc and 80 g/t silver.  It remains open in all directions.   Hannan Metals $HAN.V $KMNFF released news that they are beginning exploration on what could be the most exciting zinc exploration target in Ireland.   This target has a 1.5 km strike length with better drill intersections including DH46: 20.5m @ 7.5% Zn, 9.9% Pb, 74.6g/t Ag; and DH06: 21.3m @ 11.0% Zn, 4.8% Pb, 94.4g/t Ag.   Its 100% owned and drilling will start in April on one of the best zinc discoveries made over the past decade.  I believe this management team has the ability to expand this deposit and make additional discoveries.   In conclusion, zinc may be one of the best commodities to own right now as it is breaking out into new highs.  Supply remains tight.  Look for zinc developers with management who knows zinc with great track records. See the full news release of the beginning of exploration on this zinc project by clicking here... Best wishes, Jeb Handwerger Disclosure: I already own shares in these junior zinc miners and they are website sponsors.  This should be considered an advertorial and I should be considered biased as I could benefit from a higher price by selling and have been paid for a website sponsorship. I may buy or sell at anytime with no notice.  This contains forward looking statements which may not come to fruition.  Buyer beware small cap mining stocks are very risky. Section 17(b) provides that: “It shall be unlawful for any person, by the use of any means or instruments of transportation or communication in interstate commerce or by the use of the mails, to publish, give publicity to, or circulate any notice, circular, advertisement, newspaper, article, letter, investment service, or communication, which, though not purporting to offer a security for sale, describes such security for a consideration received or to be received, directly or indirectly, from an issuer, underwriter, or dealer, without fully disclosing the receipt, whether past or prospective, of such consideration and the amount thereof.”
