Last week's other top-gaining TSXV stocks were Africa Hydrocarbons, Almonty Industries, Robex Resources and Maya Gold & Silver.

weekly TSXV stocks

The S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index (INDEXTSI:JX) gained 0.3 percent on Friday (August 18) to end at 769.76 points.

Oil prices rallied Friday as US drillers cut rigs by five to bring the total count down to 763. A report released earlier last week suggested crude output in the US was continuing to rise.

The Canadian dollar reached a two-week high on Friday, spurred by data showing an uptick in the Bank of Canada’s core measures of inflation. The increase suggests that the bank could raise interest rates in the fall.

US stocks closed lower as news of US President Donald Trump’s firing of chief strategist Steve Bannon began to reach the market.

Against that backdrop, a number of  TSXV-listed mining stocks experienced significant share price gains last week. The five top gainers are as follows:

  • Novo Resources (TSXV:NVO)
  • Africa Hydrocarbons (TSXV:NFK.H)
  • Almonty Industries (TSXV:AII)
  • Robex Resources (TSXV:RBX)
  • Maya Gold & Silver (TSXV:MKNA)

Read on for a brief overview of those companies and what moved their share prices last week.

Novo Resources

Novo Resources announced on August 15 that it has signed definitive agreements for farm-in and joint venture gold rights with Artemis Resources (ASX:ARV) regarding Artemis’ exploration project in Western Australia. Novo will farm in to 50 percent of gold in Artemis’ tenements; in exchange, Novo is committing $2 million for exploration.

The firm is waiting on TSX approval for issuing 4,000,000 common shares to Artemis. Dr. Quinton Hennigh, Novo’s chairman, director and president, said the companies will, “soon soon be undertaking an aggressive program of large diameter drilling and trenching at Purdy’s Reward.”

Novo’s share price rose 62.54 percent to close at $5.33 last week.

Almonty Industries

Almonty Industries closed the first tranche of a non-brokered private placement on August 15. The company raised $4,800,000 through the sale of 16,000,000 common shares to Lewis Black, Almonty’s chairman, CEO and president. Black now controls 19.99 percent of the company, and plans to increase his ownership through a second private placement.

The company is focused on the mining, processing and shipping of tungsten concentrate from its Los Santos mine in Spain, its Wolfram Camp mine in Australia and its Panasqueira mine in Portugal. Almonty is also developing its Sangdong tungsten mine in Korea and the Valtreixal tin/tungsten project in Spain.

The company’s share price rose 46.67 percent to close at $0.33 last week.

Robex Resources

Robex Resources’ most recent news came in July, when it announced that its gold sales increased by 19 percent in Q2 compared to Q1. The company’s Nampala mine is located in Southern Mali, and has been producing since January 1, 2017. The firm has five gold exploration permits in Mali in addition to its producing mine.

The company has not released any recent updates, but recent geopolitical issues have driven investors towards safe-haven assets such as gold and the gold price has rallied 3.34 percent in the last 30 days. Robex saw its share price rise 33.33 percent over the course of last week to close at $0.18.

Maya Gold & Silver

Maya Gold & Silver released partial drill results on August 15 for its Morocco-based Zgounder silver mine. The mine has been on care and maintenance since 1990, and the company is working to bring it into production again. Last week’s results include:

Hole ZG-17-S10 drilled in the center of the deposit collared at 2060m elevation at 165 degrees North and minus 65 degrees has intersected 104 g/t Ag from 0 to 8.5m and 254 g/t Ag over 29.5m from 49.5 to 79 metres  including 362 g/t over 4m from 51 to 55m, 987 g/t Ag over 1.5m from 61 to 62.5m, 471 g/t Ag over 5.5m from 71 to 76.5m and extent mineralization at depth in the area.

The company’s share price rose 28.57 percent over the course of last week to close at $0.28.

Kootenay Silver

On August 15, Kootenay Silver announced the discovery of a new mineralized zone at its La Cigarra silver project in Mexico. The company’s management believes the new area has the potential to add significant new resources to the deposit, and Kootenay’s share price rose 27.27 percent last week to end at $0.14.

Kootenay President and CEO James McDonald said, “[t]he discovery of a mineralized zone of this magnitude and strength of veining in the world-class Parral mining district is a highly significant development for the company.”

He added, “[t]he large-scale nature and intensity of the mineralized zone offers exceptional future growth potential and is characteristic of other major silver deposits in the district such as the San Francisco Del Oro and Santa Barbara mines located closely to the immediate south.”

5 Top Weekly TSXV Stocks: Garibaldi Resources Soars Over 50 Percent

By Melissa Shaw, August 13, 2017

The S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index (INDEXTSI:JX) gained 2.22 percent on Friday (August 11) to end at 760.84 points.

Tensions between the US and North Korea escalated last week, and were stoked further on Friday when US President Donald Trump tweeted that military solutions are “locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely.” The CBOE Volatility Index reached its highest level since the US presidential election on Thursday (August 10). 

July US consumer price data released Friday was weaker than expected, which could make the US Federal Reserve think twice about raising rates again in 2017. The Consumer Price Index rose 0.1 percent in July, which was below the 0.2-percent gain predicted by economists polled by Reuters.

Against that backdrop, a number of TSXV-listed mining stocks experienced significant share price gains last week. The five top gainers are as follows:

Read on for a brief overview of those companies and what moved their share prices last week.

Garibaldi Resources

Garibaldi Resources’ current focus is its 200-square-kilometer land package in BC’s Eskay Mining Camp, where the E&L project at Nickel Mountain is located. The company’s most recent news came on July 27, when it announced a new surface discovery at E&L; the find was made after the company followed up on the first of four VTEM conductor targets.

The company said widespread pyrrhotite-chalcopyrite mineralization was identified on surface in gabbroic rocks that outcrop over a broad area at Anomaly A. Anomaly A is located about 6 kilometers north-northeast of historic nickel-copper mineralized zones at E&L, where more drilling will start soon.

Garibaldi Resources’ share price rose 50.65 percent to close at $0.54 last week.

Karmin Exploration

Karmin Exploration has three projects in South America: the Aripuana zinc project and Aripuana gold project in Brazil, plus the Cushuro gold project in Peru. The company has not released any news since March, but last week its share price rose 45.45 percent to close at $0.79.

Camino Minerals

Camino Minerals has several projects in Peru, including the Los Chapitos copper-silver project, the Plata Dorada copper-silver-gold project and the Red Beds copper project. Camino also holds the Lost Cabin gold project in Nevada.

The latest news from Camino came on July 20, when it reported initial drill results from the Katty zone at Los Chapitos. Camino said drilling will continue and noted that it will report further assay results once they are received. The company’s share price rose 42.86 percent last week to close at $0.62.

Northisle Copper and Gold

Northisle Copper and Gold owns the North Island copper-gold project in BC. Last week, the company’s share price rose 38.46 percent to close at $0.18.

On July 27, the company completed a six-hole drill program at the project, commenting that core samples have been sent to a lab in Vancouver. North Island is comprised of four deposits, and the firm also said it will have a preliminary economic assessment ready for two of those deposits, Hushamu and Red Dog, by the end of August.

Falco Resources

Falco Resources has exploration properties in Quebec’s historic Rouyn-Noranda Mining Camp. The company’s Horne 5 project in the area covers the past-producing Horne and Quemont mines. Osisko Gold Royalties (TSX:OR,NYSE:OR) is the firm’s largest shareholder, and currently owns 13.3 percent of the company’s outstanding shares.
