The Junior Resource Sector Continues to Thrive

The outlook for the Australian junior exploration scene remains vibrant. Exciting grassroots discoveries continue to made, both domestically and internationally. Good quality companies have been able to raise cash in order to fund their exploration endeavours. And the share prices of many quality juniors are surging on the back of their discoveries.

Alas, with literally hundreds of junior resource companies listed on the ASX, investors can become confused by the plethora of options available. There is so much happening in the sector that simply doesn’t get captured in mainstream research or media coverage.

Many of the junior stocks we watch and research at MineLife have been amongst the best performers.

To be clear, we don’t provide financial advice. But we have assembled a portfolio of active junior companies from across the resource spectrum that we believe tick important boxes – namely quality people, projects and funding. We follow these companies on a daily basis and provide regular updates on their exploration or project development activities. We maintain a list of these stocks in our in-house Portfolio.

The companies we follow range from grassroots explorers through to pre-production companies. Our report is simple, concise and easy to understand – and is 100% independent.

Our research encompasses companies in the precious metals (gold, silver, platinum, palladium), energy (oil, gas, uranium), battery materials (lithium, graphite, vanadium, high purity alumina), base metals (copper, zinc, lead, nickel, tin, cobalt, aluminium) and bulk commodities (iron ore, coal, bauxite, potash, mineral sands) sectors. Our report is simple and easy to read and caters for anyone with a passion and interest in the resource sector.

We also analyse trends within the resources industry and summarise important international developments. We sift through the barrage of company and commodity news and highlight what we believe is important from an investor perspective.

At a cost of $396 incl. GST for a 12-month subscription, our subscribers receive our notes up to five times a week.

This graphic from a recent Morgan Stanley oil sector presentation is enlightening, as it puts the size of the sector into perspective compared to other commodities - at $2.1 trillion the oil sector is 7.5 times larger than the next biggest commodity, iron ore.

The U.S. boasts the world’s largest gold reserves, with 8,133 tonnes stored in 12 Federal Reserve Banks across the country. Russia and China have been the largest gold buyers over the last 20 years. The PBOC was the biggest buyer of gold last year, purchasing 225 tonnes.

Coverage stock @WAFresources (ASX: WAF) is a great example of a junior company that can transition successfully from exploration to production status. WAF is well on the path to becoming a +400,000-ounce gold producer in Burkina Faso from 2025 to 2032.
