Ron Hera and I are live on the floor at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference. There were over 500 companies exhibiting and Ron says that in 5 years, half of them won’t exist. Ron explains that for a mining venture to be successful you need three things, experienced management with a track record, a property with decent ore grade and proximity to good infrastructure. Of course capital is required, but without these three important elements, you won’t have to worry about raising money because there won’t be any.
Ron talks about several companies he thinks have good prospects. They are nearing production, have a good quality ore deposit, and should easily make the transition from development to production. Of course we do not ever recommend any stocks mentioned on the show, but we appreciate Ron’s observations greatly.
