Found this article. Thought I would post it since it lists a lot of the gold miners up in the Yukon. Enjoy. There is a pic of Shawn Ryan in the upper right hand corner.
Article: The Yukon: The new address for gold
Here's a favorite Yukon miner page of mine. I find the info posted here is very good, the posters are a pretty savvy group. I hope y'all find it helpful too: http://siliconinvestor.advfn.com/subject.aspx?subjectid=57975
I own Kaminak ( as you well know), so I'll monitor this thread.
This is the most I've had to contribute on Kaminak. I'll copy and paste it here from another thread.
Here's the NYT article.
Here's the snippet from page 7 that (I believe) applies to Kaminak.
"At Wood and Ryan’s cabin in Dawson, the roar of air transport was constant. Ryan was flying over a growing empire with confidence. Yet his latest assertion was so hard to believe that even Fleming, who had spent more than $10 million proving the deposits on the White, found it hard to credit. Ryan told him there was more than one mother lode.
The holes Underworld was drilling on the White showed a thick, concentrated deposit: a million and a half ounces in one small zone. This was not a long quartz vein, as in the California gold fields, but a well-defined pocket, a bubble of gold. Had it been closer to a creek, it would have all washed down and left nothing behind. Ryan was building evidence of a second huge deposit on a ridge only 20 miles away, but when Fleming looked at the data, he waved it off."
Here's the news release from Kaminak.
Ryan is mentioned in the part under "The Agreement".
The Agreement Kaminak can earn a 100% interest in the properties from Shawn Ryan of Dawson City, Yukon, subject to a 2% NSR in favour of the vendor. To earn its interest Kaminak will commit to an exploration budget of $250,000 for 2009 and issue Mr. Ryan an initial payment of 250,000 common shares of Kaminak and $75,000 cash. However, Kaminak is eligible for prospecting grants from the Yukon government and has submitted applications for refunds totalling $101,000.
And just for kicks, here is Kaminak's presentation, with all the maps and everything.
Pretty good name-dropper of an article if you are looking for ways to play the Yukon.
Watch for weakness in GPD starting second week of July. The latest pp paper will be free trading then.
Wolverine wlv.v has had a few nice days. Small float and run by some guys that Brent Cooke thinks alot of.
Pex is also run by a savvy mining guy with Yukon experience but hasn't made a move yet.
Anyone know whats up with Tak? Big Yukon acreage but getting sold off.
SQI of course is rockin' but probably driven by its BC jv not its Yukon properties.
PEX has my attention just because I remember John Brock from some prior plays. The Skookum Jim prospect that they are drilling right now at the Mariposa property seems like it has as good a shot as any in the area.
I believe kjm was referencing Taku Gold and Pacific Ridge Exploration. Both players in the White Gold area of the Yukon.
Sold my Kaminak today. Yukon hype is at a fever pitch. Summer drill results are imminent across the region. My gut tells me that even great holes will disappoint. I'll watch from the sidelines, popcorn in hand.
I hope you are right. I'd like to see some big stories develop this summer.
2g over 92 meters is a great hole, but the stock underperformed on a big up day. That's the problem I'm talking about. I'm afraid we might see more of that.
I'm in Golden Predator on the TSX and OTC for the long term. I don't mind the day to day short term moves.
I want this on my history thread, will be indulging very soon.
Thanks for the links guys.
We visited the Yukon and its blossoming gold rush last autumn in the company of an advisory that covers junior resource stocks (see Daily Buy-Sell Adviser, October 12).
Six months later, enthusiasm for the region’s prospects has not waned. Mr. O’Hara sees it exemplified by a man who is “looking at the forest while others are looking at the trees.”
Mr. William Sherriff is the chairman and CEO of Golden Predator Corp. (TSX/V-GPD). He is also “a geologist with a keen sense of observation which he applies to the big geological picture that others don’t look for,” says the writer.
Exploration companies run on two things. The first is the track record of the people in charge. The second is the financing they attract, which is directly related to the first.
Mr. Sherriff has a big win to his credit, points out this analyst. He was the co-founder of uranium mining firm Energy Metals Corp. In 2007, he sold it to Uranium One Inc. (TSX-UUU) for $1.8 billion.
He has staked his new company’s future “on becoming the leading gold explorer in Canada’s Yukon.”
Actually none of the Yukon plays have done much yet share wise. I'd like to see them all performing like SQI. I'm counting on GPD to be one of the leaders this summer and fall. I think its current weakness is related to the pp paper coming free trading next week, which amounts to about 25mm shares excluding the warrants.
