Economic geologist and mining analyst Joe Mazumdar on the mining space and what to look for when assessing potential investments.
Economic geologist and mining analyst Joe Mazumdar, who recently joined Brent Cook at Exploration Insights, stopped by to chat with the Investing News Network about the mining space and what to look for when assessing potential investments. Formerly a senior mining analyst at Canaccord Genuity and Haywood Securities, Mazumdar’s opinions are certainly worth paying attention to.
In terms of juniors, Mazumdar stressed that it’s important to pay attention to how well the geology of a project has been mapped out. “Geology’s really basic, and if you don’t have that right, it’s hard to get anything else right,” he said.
Other highlights from the conversation include:
- Mazumdar’s thoughts on the recent troubles faced by Rubicon Minerals’ (TSX:RMX) Phoenix project
- A few red flags for investors to watch out for when evaluating potential investments in mining companies or junior mining stocks
- Why he likes Claude Resources (TSX:CRJ) and Lake Shore Gold (TSX:LSG)
- What he hopes to see in the junior resource sector in 2016
