In Celebration Of Gold $1,000, 15 Great Gold Juniors For You To Choose From

Posted by AGORACOM at 9:31 AM on Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

As soon as gold crossed over $1,000 yesterday, the lines lit up on CNBC, Bloomberg, BNN and online.  For example, world-renowned small-cap trader and “stock guru to the little people”Timothy Sykes – immediately posted the following to Twitter at 7:30 AM:

TimothySykes Gold Request

I anticipated requests like this would come in from all over the web, so we’ve put together a quick snapshot of 15 gold stocks / AGORACOM Clients.  Yes, assume I am horribly conflicted and do your homework.

I’ve listed the companies alphabetically to avoid any appearance of preferential treatment.  You have some grass roots companies, as well as, some cash generating producers in here, so be sure to look through the entire list and find the one that best suits your investment needs.

What is really great about these junior gold companies is they are completely accessible to questions from online investors.  You post questions to their HUB and get an answer in less than 24 hours – and usually the same day.  That should give you an early indication as to the confidence of these companies.  I’ve provided a link to each company’s HUB and electronic shareholder forum.

If you have already committed to making gold stocks a part of your longer-term investing plan (longer than the end of this week), then you’ll also want to utilize the following helpful resources that I have set up:

Gold Prices Page – Consolidated view of everything from spot prices to 1-year charts.

Gold $1,000 Blog Posts – Anytime I post something about gold, I add it to this category for ease of use.  You will note that we have been calling for $1,000 gold for a couple of years now.  Our Chief Commentator, Peter Grandich, has been interviewed in WSJ, CNBC, Fox, BNN, Marketwatch and almost every other major media source for his uncanny gold calls over the past 3 years.

I hope you will find this list helpful and I look forward to any comments you may have.

    Hey, Griz. Thanks for stopping in. Yep, QQ Girl alerted us and I posted it the day before your post here. Nonetheless, doesn’t hurt to have investors see great news twice.

    *Full Disclosure – Grizzly Diamonds is an AGORACOM Client … but the numbers speak for themselves.

    Hi George
    with gold going up I think you missed one pick. Grizzly Giamonds has a great GOLD play in the Greenwood area of BC. Read Below

    Grizzly rock samples up to 55.3 g/t Au at Greenwood

    2009-09-09 13:47 ET – News Release

    Mr. Brian Testo reports


    Grizzly Diamonds Ltd. has provided a property and exploration update for its Greenwood gold project, British Columbia.

    2009 AeroTEM III geophysical survey

    During August, 2009, Grizzly commissioned Aeroquest Limited to commence and complete a 1,600-line-kilometre, 2009 helicopter-borne AeroTEM III survey over the western portion of Grizzly’s land package including the Rock Creek property and portions of Grizzly’s Sidley-Dayton property. The survey has been completed and more than 100 spatially separate electromagnetic (EM) conductors have been identified within the Grizzly property. Some of the conductors are spatially associated with magnetic anomalies and some are not. The conductors display a wide range in total measured conductance, orientation, length and calculated depth extent. Follow-up prospecting, sampling and mapping to determine the possible source for each conductor are continuing. Prospecting, sampling and mapping at a number of the conductors identified from the 2008 survey have yielded a number of sulphide zones, some of which are associated with gold, as well as graphite-bearing argillites.

    2009 fieldwork

    The 2009 field program being conducted by APEX Geoscience Ltd. consists of prospecting, rock and soil sampling, stream sediment sampling, geological mapping, and ground geophysical surveying. To date, a total of 589 rock samples have been collected with assays for 470 samples received to date. The highlights include the following:

    The Copper Mountain area has yielded a total of six rock samples with values from 9.41 up to 55.3 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (1.61 ounces per ton) and 19.7 g/t (0.57 ounce per ton) silver (Ag) with associated anomalous copper (Cu), lead (Pb), zinc (Zn), arsenic (As) and antimony (Sb).
    The Motherlode area has yielded numerous and widespread rock samples with values from one gram per tonne up to 6.65 g/t (0.19 ounce per ton) Au, along with up to 55.0 g/t (1.6 ounces per ton) Ag and up to 4.88 per cent Cu.
    The Mount Attwood to Overlander area has yielded rock samples with up to 7.33 g/t (0.21 ounce per ton) Au, 26.0 g/t Ag and up to 3.07 per cent Cu and 1.8 per cent Pb.
    The Rock Creek prospect has yielded up to 3.29 g/t (0.10 ounce per ton) Au, 10.6 g/t (0.31 ounce per ton) Ag and 1.56 per cent Cu at the Lawless area and up to 53.2 g/t (1.55 ounces per ton) Au, 15.7 g/t (0.46 ounce per ton) Ag at the Ket 28 area. A number of widespread samples at Ket 28 also yielded between one to 10 g/t Au with anomalous concentrations of barium and Zn.
    Gold and copper mineralization at all of the showings is hosted in either late Paleozoic Knob Hill group volcanics and sediments or within Triassic Brooklyn formation sediments and is associated with extensive wall rock alteration, sulphides, veining and, in some cases, skarn alteration.
    Ground geophysical surveys have been performed at the Lawless and Ket 28 areas in preparation for drilling. Prospecting, geological mapping, rock and soil sampling, and stream sediment sampling across various portions of the property are all in progress. Further ground geophysical surveys are being contemplated for the Copper Mountain and Motherlode areas in order to aid in the identification of future drill targets.

    Upcoming 2009 drilling program

    Historical gold showings at the Lawless and Ket 28 areas will be the first targets drill tested during the fall 2009 program. Drilling is expected to commence in late September to early October. As current target identification progresses, prospective regions in the Copper Mountain and Motherlode areas may also be drill tested during 2009, depending upon time and budget constraints.

    All 2009 field and office exploration programs are being conducted under the supervision of Michael Dufresne, MSc, PGeol, a principal of APEX Geoscience and a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101.

    One of our top ranked members on AGORACOM (QQ Girl), posted the following comment earlier today:

    “You may wish to add another to your list – Grizzly Diamonds – see today’s news release for amazing results.”

    It was posted on an older Seabridge Gold post but I get the feeling it was meant to be posted here.

    In any event, QQ is right and you should definitely have a look at today’s news out of Grizzly, which can be seen here.

    Our blog post was put together late yesterday and the Grizzly news came out early this afternoon, so it was caught in a bit of a vortex.

    Thanks QQ!

    Great write up George. I just started a new portfolio and added all the companies in your list to it. It will be interesting to see how these stocks perform especially if gold continues to climb.
