Basic description: PGOL owns 3 royalties (1 producing) and 3 exploration properties. The producing Moss Mine has a 10 year life (started in 2018), which is currently being increased by Northern Vortex(NEE.V). The company clearly states in their most recent presentation that they want to ramp up production by 10 fold, which would mean multi million dollar royalties for Patriot Gold every quarter. NEE.V is also increasing it’s resource as we speak, so royalty payments will for sure exceed the 10 years - northernvertex.com
PGOL only started trading on the CSE at the end of summer 2020, so volume has been low, compared to the US side which trades daily and in large volume. But the Canadian side will catch up as time goes on and more profitable quarters are announced. To get an accurate market depth, you want to compare what’s shown on the US side and it translates to the Canadian side at roughly 1.30 exchange rate. The CSE might not show all those bids/asks because of the alternate trading systems.
