Investing in Precious Metals via Private Placement

Editor's Note: I've been trying to educate you about private placements like those I offer to members of Nick's Notebook. They can be extremely lucrative for several reasons, which I explain here. But it's always better to show than to tell. So below is a sample deal that members of Nick's Notebook are participating in this week. It's a high-grade silver discovery play with multi-bagger upside that comes with a full warrant so we can buy more in the future with zero additional risk now.


Dealflow is picking up with gold now having broken out to a new bull market, taking out the $1,600 level yesterday.

The last time it broke above this price it quickly went to new all-time highs.

Silver and related stocks have yet to catch up, but they will. They always do. And then they move higher than gold itself in percentage terms. Much higher. That's the leverage that creates the legendary 10,000% winners you've heard about in the mining space.

We’ve financed several gold companies over the years in anticipation of this bull market. Here in its early stages, I’m looking to establish a bit of silver exposure.

You might have noticed.

We recently financed Hannan Metals (TSX-V: HAN) to pursue a massive copper-silver project in Peru. And we also financed Alianza Minerals (TSX-V: ANZ), which last year discovered a new area of silver mineralization in the Keno Hill Silver District of the Yukon.

Today we’re adding another one, with an upcoming drill campaign in one of the most prolific silver camps in the world on a property where silver mineralization outcrops at surface.

                     is gearing up to drill the                   Project in Durango State, Mexico. It’s just down the street from the company’s former                   project. Pan American acquired its interest in that project last year for C$2 million and a 2% net smelter royalty that can be bought down to 1% for C$4 million.

The area is known for prolific silver mines. Not only is                   right down the road from                  , it’s also close to SSR Mining’s La Pitarrilla, which contains 500 million ounces of silver with a current NPV of $1.7 billion. There are many historic and producing mines and recent discoveries in the area as well.

There are two known high-grade silver veins on the property called the                 and                 Veins where silver, gold, copper, zinc, and lead outcrop at surface. The highest-grade sample of outcropping vein returned one meter with 1.98 g/t gold, 514 g/t silver, 1.03% copper, 3.28% zinc, and 4.45% lead.

Grab samples collected from historic mine workings on the property returned high-grade silver and lead as well. A robust soil sampling program showed potential for disseminated mineralization between the veins.

                    is raising a small bit of money to put a few holes right into those veins. Drill permits are in place.

It is raising C$400,000 at C$0.08. And the financing comes with a full warrant at C$0.12 for two years. The majority will be taken by existing shareholders and key investors who will be helpful and supportive going forward.

That is a cheap financing near the bottom of the cycle. The average issue price of shares in the company’s history is C$0.21. Shares were over $0.70 on the back of the company's last discovery.

The money will fund a 1,500-meter drill program at                  .

This project alone could be a company maker.

That’s why I waited until now to tell you about the company’s six other projects, including one that has already been drilled and hosts several silver veins in an area with over 25 kilometers of strike. That project, called                  , hosts classic high-grade silver-zinc-lead banded epithermal veins with intercepts like:

  • 0.95m, 2,144 g/t Silver, 3.49% Zinc + Lead
  • 0.98m, 600 g/t Silver, 4.06% Zinc + Lead
  • 0.71m, 837 g/t Silver, 21.37% Zinc + Lead

To participate in the private placement, contact the company’s CEO and tell him you’re coming from Nick’s Notebook. Here is his contact info:
