When a whole sector of the market falls out of favour with investors even the best news can fail to move a company’s share price. Precious metals explorers and developers, no matter how good their stories, have had an incredibly hard time gaining market traction over the last couple of years. Which creates a real challenge for CEO’s like Phil Walford of Marathon Gold (T.MOZ).
One of the challenges the Yukon poses is to think “big enough”. As you fly over you see hundreds of placer operations, some recreational, some huge, all pulling gold in flakes and nuggets from the creeks which run between the hills and mountains. The essential geological insight is that the placer gold in the creeks came from somewhere and the logical place to look are the valley walls surrounding the creeks. Which is fine as far as it goes, but where did that gold come from?
