This week we’re analyzing trends in junior mining and capital markets! Matt chats with PwC Canada’s National Mining Leader Liam Fitzgerald about the recently-released Junior mine 2017 report. We delve into recent “upward trends in cash balances and deal activity” on the S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index (9:05) and discuss commodity trends and market outlooks heading into 2018.

Liam explains the importance of exploration investment and highlights the importance of building a cohesive narrative when it comes to financing venture companies (17:16). He refers to two juniors specifically, Barkerville Gold Mines (TSXV: BGM) and Cobalt 27 Capital‘s(TSXV: KBLT) recent $200-million initial public offering (IPO).

Matt asks about the emerging “technology metal,” or green, economy, and how it impacts traditional mining companies (18:15). Also, more on lithium (20:45)!

Liam also provides insight on the global economy and what to expect heading into 2018 (22:00).

Meanwhile, Matt sits down with Lisa Davis, the CEO of PearTree Securities, during our Sponsor Spotlight to talk about the innovative charity flow-through financing model (27:45). Lisa explains the corporate social responsibility (CSR) implications of PearTree’s work and underlines the importance of executive-level diversity for mining companies. She also explores some trends in junior mine finance, including Goldcorp‘s (TSX: G; NYSE: GG) goal to invest $100 million in a portfolio of junior explorers. (PearTree was a sponsor of The Northern Miner’s Progressive Mine Forum in October.)
