Gold Investing

Last week’s top-gaining mining stocks on the TSXV were Colonial Coal, Mineral Mountain Resources, Sarama Resources, NuLegacy Gold and Evrim Resources.

The S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index (INDEXTSI:JX) closed last week down at 821.21 points, declining 2.01 percent.

On Friday (March 23), fears of a trade war between the US and China hit the markets, led by declines in financial and industrial shares.

Meanwhile, Canada’s annual inflation rate in February jumped to a three-year high, while January retail sales put in another disappointing performance. As a result, the Bank of Canada may raise interest rates sooner than expected.

Against that backdrop, a number of TSXV-listed stocks in the mining sector saw share price increases. The five top gainers are as follows:

  • Colonial Coal (TSXV:CAD)
  • Mineral Mountain Resources (TSXV:MMV)
  • Sarama Resources (TSXV:SWA)
  • NuLegacy Gold (TSXV:NUG)
  • Evrim Resources (TSXV:EVM)

Without further ado, here’s a look at last week’s five top weekly TSXV stocks.
