WSMIK: It's All About the People

I’m excited to present to you another episode of my What Smart Mining Investors Know series. Today I talk about the people. Who's running a company and what past successes or failures they've had, what pertinent knowledge they offer, and how they treat their shareholders - these things are really important. A team has to have enough experience, knowledge and connections to cover all of a public explorer needs, from the very technical exploration and engineering side of things all the way through the capital markets.

But how can we assess this? When I'm dealing with new people, I start with a good old "tell me about your company" meeting. And when I do that, what I'm looking for is a team that outlines and emphasizes that they are guided by a clear plan to create value for shareholders. Sounds basic but if the pitch is carried by a clear and credible plan to create value then odds are much improved that the team is good.

There's no doubt the people running a company are absolutely the most important factor of that. They choose the project, determine how to advance and structure the company, raise the money to communicate with the markets, and find funds to invest, and the technical people make or break the exploration side of the story. So this week I talk about how I figure out if 'the people' are any good.

Hi Gwen: I was going to write a couple of days ago because I had not received anything regarding my subscription, so was happy to receive this yesterday.

I guess it was sometime in 2017 when I first subscribed to the Maven Letter because I was very disappointed with where my _____ newsletter subscriptions were going. I have been very pleased with both the style and contents of the letter, it reflects my interest in the junior market. I was really pleased with your excellent piece in the last issue regarding PP's and "free trade dates". But, more than anything I thank you for the Premium Service. It is a service that is excellent. In the past year we have had a number of issues that have soared and others that have been just great. There has only been one that disappointed, but even on that one I managed to almost break even and still have the warrants. Many thanks for a job well done.
