For the past few weeks, I’ve been urging investors to take a close look at a quality gold exploration companies working in Canada’s Yukon Territory… But with so many Yukon gold stocks to choose from, it can be difficult for investors to determine which companies deserve the most attention. And that’s exactly why I put this article together for you today. For the first time ever, I’ll be publishing some of the guidelines I’ve been personally using to buy Yukon gold stocks. The very first thing investors should know is that the Yukon gold story is just getting started. Last year, nearly 80,000 new gold claims were staked in the Yukon. But this represents only 4% of the Yukon’s total land mass. There is still plenty of staking potential. In 2011, however, it’s very likely we’ll see several companies make big gold discoveries. In an average year, only about $20 or $30 million is spent exploring for gold in the Yukon. Now that the price of gold is breaking record highs, about $100 million is spent in an average year. But in 2011, the Yukon Geological Survey estimates almost $330 million will be spent for work programs and drilling this summer in the Yukon. With so much exploration going on, someone will no doubt find gold. Almost 20 million ounces of placer gold have been taken out of the Yukon Territory over the century. The Yukon overall has the biggest placer gold signatures in the world— meaning there are very large sources of gold in the Yukon from whence this gold sprang. Geologists generally agree that the source of the placer deposits is typically 10 times larger than the amount of placer gold discovered in an area. In the case of …

Exploring Yukon Gold Stocks

Exploring Yukon Gold Stocks

Investors are getting heated over Yukon gold exploration stocks, but the cold weather may put a bit of a chill into share prices until next season… During the dark and frozen winters of Canada’s Yukon Territory, efforts to explore and develop new gold resources are crippled. So work on Yukon gold projects is pretty much at a standstill right now. Some gold companies, however, have prepared for the wintertime lull in Yukon exploration by staking other gold claims in warmer global regions… Radius Gold (TSX-V: RDU ) Share Price $0.86 Exchange: Symbol TSX Venture: RDU Market Cap $63 Million Website www.radiusgold.com Radius Gold (TSX-V: RDU) is a precious metal exploration, joint-venturing, and royalty firm that is currently focused on gold and silver projects in the Yukon and Guatemala. The company is part of a larger group of mineral firms lead by Simon Ridgway, a world-renowned prospector and mining industry financier. Known as Gold Group, the firm includes Fortuna Silver Mines (TSX: FVI ), Iron Creek Capital (TSX-V: IRN ), Emerick Resources (TSX-V: ERC ), Focus Ventures (TSX-V: FCV ), and Western Pacific Resources (TSX-V: WRP ). For Radius Gold, Ridgeway and his team have assembled a regionally diverse portfolio of nine total projects in Canada, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Mexico, and Peru. The company has already entered into joint ventures on seven of their gold and silver projects with companies including Solomon Resources (TSX-V: SRB ), B2Gold (TSX: BTO ), and Kappes, Cassiday & Associates — one of the world’s leading gold experts in heap leaching. Right now, however, Radius Gold’s exploration focus are the company’s 60 Mile Yukon Gold project and the Holly-Banderas project in Guatemala. 60 Mile Gold Project, Yukon The 60 Mile Gold project is located in the world famous Tintina gold belt, and covers six creeks and rivers where placer gold was historically mined. Records show that 500,000 ounces of placer gold has been historically recovered from Radius’ claims. The company says that the project has strong geological similarities to International Tower Hill’s (TSX-V: ITH ) Livengood gold discovery in nearby Alaska. The Livengood deposit is currently home to over 7.6 million ounces of indicated and inferred gold resources. In addition to the Livengood deposit (marked #7 in the map below), there are many other world-class gold mines through the Tintina gold belt in Alaska and the Yukon. Radius Gold is currently working on three projects in Canada’s Yukon Territory click to enlarge In mid-August, Radius began a small seven-hole exploration drilling program at the 60 Mile project. The results were reported three months later and were encouraging — showing high-grade gold. But these seven holes are just the very beginning of all the needed to be calculate the size of a gold resource or reserve as standardized by the Canadian Securities Administrators. As I…

Weekend: Don’t Buy the Hype Behind Facebook

Welcome to the Wealth Daily Weekend Edition— our insights from the week in investing and links to our most-read Wealth Daily and sister publication articles. See you around, Mark Zuckerberg… You may be Time ‘s Man of the Year for 2010, but I have decided to “de-friend” you. Your $50 billion network has been an occasionally interesting diversion, but I’ve decided it contains virtually no real genius. Once I had taken a few months to burn through the nostalgia effect, I knew your days were numbered— especially when I got tired of spying on that ex-cheerleader. In the end, all I learned was that she shopped quite a bit, watched way too much reality TV, and was obsessed with creating a really cool but imaginary farm. I also learned that sometimes the best roads in life are the ones that begin with a sudden detour. As it turns out, getting jilted in that Burger King parking lot in ’79 wasn’t so bad after all… So, a few weeks before Christmas, I announced to my 253 friends that I was going cold turkey. I was going to delete my Facebook account and go dark again. Sunrise or sunset? What surprised me as I said farewell to my network of friends was how many other people said they were thinking of doing exactly the same thing… Facebook, all of them seemed to say in one way or another, was a pretty poor substitute for the “real thing.” That’s when I realized the Facebook phenomena has probably peaked. (Of course, seeing Zuckerberg’s freckly mug on the cover of Time was its own clue. Say what you will, but the cover curse has claimed its fair share of victims.) But on my way out the door of the social media world, I learned the vampire squid was headed in. And in a way that only a stock jockey can, I laughed my fool head off when I realized some more sheep were about be shorn. The hype machine was shifting into overdrive. It was proof, I thought, of the old saw, “Wall Street people learn nothing and forget everything.” I mean, didn’t anyone remember the day Rupert Murdoch bought MySpace at its peak for $580 million? Five years later, I’d bet that’s one he’d like to have back. But that’s the nature of this type of business. It’s littered with the corpses of the last “next big thing.” Let’s face it, Facebook is a great name— but the fact is its most basic reason for being is imminently repeatable. As I type, thousands are undoubtedly planning the next social media arena. And eventually, someone will pull it off— the same way Zuckerberg did when he knocked off MySpace. Even still, Goldman Sachs took the plunge because they know they will turn a nice profit when this one hits the IPO circuit. According to the deal, the Wall Street powerhouse has invested $450 million in Facebook, while Russian investor Digital Sky Technologies added an additional $50 million. That values the social networking platform at cool $50 billion — more than any other entertainment conglomerate with the exception of Disney… Walt’s old firm still tops Zuckerberg by $21 billion. Peak Facebook But if history is an indicator, I’m guessing Disney’s spot at the top is as safe as it comes, based in part on something my friend Laura told me over drinks. When I asked her if she expected to be trolling around on Facebook 20 years…

Gold Outperforming Gold Stocks in 2010

Gold Outperforming Gold Stocks in 2010

With just over two months left in 2010, the price of gold is outperforming share prices of the world’s largest companies that mine the precious yellow metal. For the year, 10 of the 12 largest gold companies have seen their shares rise as commodity prices elevate. On average, these gold stocks have returned a 15.9% gain. That compares to gold, which is up 21.1% for the year. Take a look: Company Share Price 12/31/09 10/22/10 Percent Change Stock Chart Barrick Gold (NYSE: ABX) $39.38 $46.13 ↑17.1% Goldcorp (NYSE: GG) $39.34 $42.04 ↑ 6.9% Newmont Mining (NYSE: NEM) $47.31 $59.37 ↑ 25.5% Newcrest Mining (ASX: NCM) $35.33 $40.00 ↑ 13.2% AngloGold Ashanti (NYSE: AU) $40.18 $45.70 ↑ 13.7% Kinross Gold (NYSE: KGC) $18.40 $17.55 ↓4.6% Polyus Gold (Pink OTC: OPYGY) $27.55 $31.10 ↑12.9% Agnico-Eagle Mines (NYSE: AEM) $54.00 $70.10 ↑31.7% Gold Fields (NYSE: GFI) $13.11 $15.32 ↑16.9% Yamana Gold (NYSE: AUY) $11.38 $10.74 ↓5.6% Eldorado Gold (NYSE: EGO) $14.17 $16.76 ↑18.3% IAMGOLD (NYSE: IAG) $15.64 $17.49 ↑11.8% Average Gain ↑15.9% Dow Jones Gain to Date: ↑6.8% NASDAQ Gain to Date: ↑9.3% S&P 500 Gain to Date: ↑6.1% Gold’s Gain to Date ↑21.1% The price of physical gold may be outperforming gold stocks for 2010. But one of the biggest complaints among anti-gold investors is that bullion doesn’t pay an income of any kind. However, there are several gold stocks that do pay dividends.
