Read on to find out about what each company has been up to lately.
Canadian explorer Revival Gold owns and is currently developing the formerly producing Beartrack gold project in Idaho. The company already fully owns the neighboring Arnett gold project.
On Monday (February 3), the company substantially increased the mineral resource estimate for Beartrack, saying in its release that it now has an indicated mineral resource of 36.4 million metric tons graded at 1.16 grams per metric ton (g/t) gold for a total of 1.35 million ounces of gold.
On the TSXV last week, Revival Gold was trading at C$0.92 by Friday after gaining 50.82 percent over the previous five days of trading.
Mangazeya Mining has three non-ferrous and precious metals deposits in the Zabaykalsky Krai of the Russian Far East.
On Tuesday (February 4), the company released its production results for 2019, reporting an 80.2 percent increase in gold ore mined year-on-year, for yearly production of 44,390 ounces of gold.
The company was trading at C$0.085 by last Friday after gaining 41.87 percent over the week.
CANEX Metals is a Canadian junior explorer with a focus on a new gold discovery at the Gold Range project in Arizona, where chip samples have returned 8.5 g/t gold over 5.6 meters. On top of the Gold Range project, the company also has option agreements for projects in British Columbia.
On Tuesday, CANEX reported that it sampled high-grade gold at Gold Range during exploration done in December of last year. CANEX said that 13 vein samples have returned gold values ranging from 7.1 to 31.7 g/t gold over widths ranging from 0.25 to 1.5 meters.
On the TSXV, CANEX was trading at C$0.27, up by 35 percent.
Prime Mining bills itself as a near-term gold producer, with its asset — the Los Reyes project in Sinaloa, Mexico — having produced the precious metal historically.
Prime Mining had reached C$0.54 by last Friday, gaining 31.71 percent over the previous week of trading.
Canadian explorer Garibaldi Resources has eight projects on its books, though it’s focused primarily on its Nickel Mountain project in Northern British Columbia.
The project is unsurprisingly nickel focused, and in its most recent release from January 22, the company reported nickel-copper-rich mineralization from nine recent drill holes, which expanded the massive sulfide zone at the project.
In Toronto, Garibaldi Resources was trading at C$0.86, up by 26.47 percent over the previous week.
