As you know, we've been trying to feature certain mining shares here in 2016 as a way of helping these companies to raise their overall visibility. To that end, earlier today I had the pleasure to visit with Max Porterfield, CEO of Callinex Mines.
In this brief call, Max and I discuss:
- the resource sector, in general, and the prospects for base metals as well as precious metals
- the team he's put together at Callinex and why that makes them such an intriguing exploration company
- the recent news of some major, outside investors taking a position in his company
Though investing in exploration companies certainly isn't for everyone, I do think that nearly everyone will benefit by having listened to this discussion.
