Located in the charming yet rugged terrain of British Columbia lies an area famed for its gold discovery history - The Golden Triangle. This significant location brims with tales of dreamers and explorers setting out to strike a fortune and outstanding mining projects with profound yields.

Engaging in a journey through time, our first stop takes us to 1861, even before Canada officially declared a country. The Golden Triangle became the acclaimed destination for many prospectors seeking their share of riches. Quite notably, Alexander "Buck" Choquette uncovered gold deposits at the intersection of the Stikine and Anuk Rivers, an event that set off the Stikine Gold Rush. A gold fever ensued, attracting over 800 prospectors to depart Victoria to try their luck in the Stikine.

Fast forward to 1918, we witness the inception of the Premier Gold Mine. This significant discovery reeled in notable attention and proved profitable for Premier Gold Mining Company, the initial proprietors. Between 1921 and 1923, the company enjoyed a striking 200% return on the stock market, showcasing this Golden Triangle's remarkable potential and profitability.

Our next landmark in history, the Snip Mine, was discovered in 1964 by Cominco. However, the deposit remained inactive until 1986. Showcasing a high-grade quality, the Snip Mine generated approximately one million ounces of gold from 1991 to 1999, with an average gold grade pegged at an impressive 27.5 g/t. Eskay Creek rings loud in the Golden Triangle's mining history annals. In 1988, after 109 attempts of drilling, Stikine Resources and Calpine Resources finally encountered their desired yield. Eskay Creek was thus crowned as Canada's highest-grade gold mine and bolstered its reputation as the world's fifth-largest silver producer. While the Golden Triangle flaunted a noticeably high golden grade, the falling gold prices towards the end of the 90s presented challenging economic circumstances.

Moreover, the Triangle, nestled in a remote Canadian region, struggled with high power, labour, and logistics costs due to the need for more infrastructure. Notwithstanding its historical hiccups, the Golden Triangle in the present continues to be an active and thriving hub for mining. Recent developments have seen a slew of companies advancing their mining efforts. Our upcoming publication will feature notable companies whose stocks offer excellent investment opportunities in the current gold rush!

Natural resources investments are generally volatile, with higher headline risk than other sectors. They tend to be more sensitive to economic data, political and regulatory events, and underlying commodity prices. The prices of natural resources investments are influenced by factors such as the costs of underlying commodities like oil, gas, metals, and coal. These investments may trade on various exchanges and experience price fluctuations due to short-term demand, supply, and investment flows.

Natural resource investments often respond more sensitively to global events and economic data, including natural disasters, political turmoil, pandemics, or the release of employment data.

Investing in foreign markets may carry greater risks than domestic markets, including political, currency, economic, and market risks. It is essential to evaluate if trading in low-priced and international securities is appropriate for your circumstances and financial resources. Past performance does not guarantee future results.

No investment process is risk-free, and profitability is not guaranteed; investors may lose their entire investment. No investment strategy or risk management technique can guarantee returns or eliminate risk in any market environment. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against loss. Investing in foreign securities involves risks not associated with domestic investments, such as currency fluctuations, political and economic instability, and differing accounting standards, potentially leading to greater share price volatility. The prices of small- and mid-cap company stocks generally experience higher volatility than large-company stocks and may involve higher risks. Smaller companies may lack the management expertise, financial resources, product diversification, and competitive strengths needed to withstand adverse economic conditions.
