Phoenix Gold Resources (OTCMKTS: PGRCF), has been my top stock pick for November. It’s main listing is on the Canadian Stock Exchange, where it trades as PXA. On the US OTC it trades as PGRCF. The stock has had a great run this month, as you can see from this chart below, and there are two factors that likely explain it.
The first factor is the simple rise in the price of gold and mining stocks, both of which went into a small correction towards the end of the summer that ended in the first half of October. Recent CPI data is showing everyone that inflation is now real, which is causing some investors to invest in gold as an alternative to bonds, which are yielding practically nothing, making it so that investing in them means losing value on money.
The second factor is an update the company gave on its Phase Two Drill program at its York Harbour property. “The York Harbour Mine Property is known to be prospective for its copper-zinc-silver-gold-cobalt massive sulphide deposits. The known mineralization exhibits characteristics consistent with classic mafic-type flow dominated (Cyprus-type) VMS deposits. Similar geological environments and styles of mineralization have formed relatively large copper-zinc deposits elsewhere in Newfoundland at Tilt Cove (9 Mt of between 1% and 12% copper) and in Cyprus at the Mavrovouni mine (15 Mt of 4% copper with zinc and gold) (Messina Minerals Inc., 2009),” explained Phoenix Gold in a press release.
The company issued an update at the start of the month with the following information:
• Phase 2 diamond drilling to date comprises 10 drill holes totalling 1,354 metres with significant semi-
massive and massive VMS mineralization identified in drill cores from 8 of 10 holes.
• Massive sulphide mineralization includes drilling lengths of 10 m (YH21-19) and 26 m (YH21-18).
• Channel sampling continues at the 15 metres of sheared semi-massive and massive sulphide
mineralization adjacent to the No. 4 Brook adit situated 1 km west of the Phase 2 drilling area.
The Company has completed 10 of the 28 proposed drill holes, or 1,354 metres of the proposed 4,325 metres of NQ-size diamond drilling. Significant semi-massive and massive VMS mineralization; including pyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite and rarely native copper, has been identified in drill cores from 8 of the 10 holes. It is anticipated that the Phase 2 drilling program will be completed near the end of November. Some of the latest massive sulphide mineralization includes that seen from drilling lengths of 92 to 118 metres in drill hole YH21-18 and 92 to 102 metres in drill hole YH21-19.”
