I’ve been to about a decade of Vancouver Resource Investment Conferences, the big Cambridge House BC mining convention that runs every year around this time and, for much of that decade, the mood has been fairly dour.
Close-ology is a mining term used to describe companies that are close to another company that is running red hot, and may justifiably make the case that they can be hot too. For some, like serial ring-staker Ryan Kalt, close-ology is a business model. The moment someone announces they've found something interesting in Dildo, Newfoundland or Punkydoodle Corners, Ontario, Kalt's crew hops on their laptops, busts out the credit card, and register claims all around it, sometimes without ever having walked the land.
There are a lot of eyes watching gold right now. A universe of traders—fundamental, technical and the like—are watching the malleable metal for any sign of strength.

Of those, perhaps five or ten will evolve into development projects. And of that small group, only one will become an actual (profitable) mine.

The Green Movement, a push that is gaining momentum around the globe spurred by zero-carbon climate warriors like Greta Thunberg, is all about meeting power demands through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources.
A couple weeks back we took a look at some of the more prospective (and active) exploration plays in Ontario and Quebec, particularly those along the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt.
Falcon Gold (FG.V), a company we featured in some detail a few months back, has been busy positioning itself in a region known as the High-Grade Gold Capital of the World—the Red Lake Mining Camp of Ontario.
Ontario-Quebec ExplorerCos poised for potentially significant gains as the correction in gold matures
At the beginning of this year, and several times since, we covered numerous exploration plays on both sides of the Ontario-Quebec border—ExplorerCos kicking rocks and probing the subsurface of prolific geological settings like the Abitibi Greenstone Belt.
