Newfoundland Gold Camp

26 August 2021: There's a new gold rush happening... in Newfoundland. Few people have heard of it yet, but those in the mining community are well aware, at least since New Found Gold began reporting some spectacular intercepts proving there is a LOT of gold to be found. News arrives every day of new deals being done, of new companies racing to get in, as existing players race to bring more of the best land under lease. Its very early days, still. The market for mining stocks continues significantly under-performing the larger markets, and with the market looking tenuous, at best, near all time highs... there aren't many other places mining investors can go hoping SUCCESS IN DISCOVERY across an entire gold camp enables success in countering the market trends... while banking massive future upside in the potential inherent in large volume high grade gold deposits. As it is early, many of the companies are still quite inexpensive, in spite of the massive scope of the potential. With a bit of luck... a significant number of the penny stocks on this list of forty companies, thirty six of them listed, might succeed. With a bit of work... most of the larger companies here now are going to become much, much larger.

Basics of the geology are... the structure controlling the deposition of the gold is an artifact of the collision of Africa with North America, to create the Appalachian Mountains, as shown here, not in a single event, but in a series of collisions with a number of intervening terranes, each paired with its own subduction events: Appalachian Geologic History. The same sequences in events seen along the U.S. East Coast are duplicated farther north in Newfoundland creating geologic similarities between subduction related fault structures and mineral deposits in Canada and Ireland as shown here:

Newfoundland's emergence as new gold camp is driven by New Found Gold's discovery of high grade gold in a particular style of deposit having particular features, particular associations in rock types, in accessory minerals and the indicators that lead to finding deposits having particular association with the structures created in subduction related fault zones, that tend to be paired with large scale deposits of high grade gold.

November 10, 2013: Orogenic Gold Deposits

Beyond high grade gold in "subduction related" structural features... Newfoundland might be host to significant occurrences of gold, and other minerals, in any number of different deposit types... most of which are very well covered in Sprott's investor education series in eleven lectures, linked here as a Youtube playlist of Andrew Jackson's Ore Deposits Series for Non-Geologists, which is somehow missing the one linked here: Ore Deposits 101 - part 5, Epithermal Deposits.

Newfoundland is fairly aggressive in promoting the industry, including directly subsidizing drilling expenses for junior explorers... but also provide some good information through the DNR:

Gold Projects

Active Exploration Companies Search (includes private companies, prospectors, service providers, optioners, and many mining projects outside Newfoundland in Labrador and New Brunswick.)

My full and more complete list of companies and tickers excluding Labrador and New Brunswick is found below the Camp Map.

The most advanced projects are New Found Gold NFGFF and Marathon Gold MGDPF... most others with holdings and the financial backing required are drilling now.

Royalty company Altius Minerals is buying shares as well as making investments in royalty deals, and optioning wholly owned properties to new partners:
Anaconda Mining Viking Gold 2% NSR, plus 1-1.5% royalties on surrounding lands
Canstar Resources Golden Baie Gold 1% NSR
Canstar Resources Buchans Zinc 2% NSR
Canstar Resources 7,669,024 shares
Canterra Minerals Wilding Lake, Gold 2% NSR,
Canterra Minerals Crystal Lake, Gold 2% NSR,
Canterra Minerals Intersection Gold 2% NSR
Canterra Minerals 4,398,750 shares
Sokoman Minerals Moosehead Gold 2% NSR
Sokoman Minerals Iron Horse Iron 1% GSR; option to acquire additional 1.1% GSR
Sterling Metals Sail Pond Silver, Copper 2% NSR
Sterling Metals own 14%, after spinning it off, formerly 100%, and formerly a New Found Gold property
Tru Precious Metals Golden Rose Gold 2% NSR
Tru Precious Metals 7,140,000 shares

[need to create/expand a new section covering both cross holdings, optioned interests / NSRs, and financiers/banks vs portfolio companies... ie Tru Gold and Resurgent Capital as shown in the link... incl Crest, Crescat, Sprott, Gentile, etc]

[need to update % holdings for royalty cos as well as Sprott and Gentile holdings... per reported transactions vs other media, which are often incorrect ]

Eric Sprott is heavily involved in Newfoundland Explorers, along with Michael Gentile... and others. You can find reportable positions for large investors in Canadian listed companies by searching SEDI...
