With the mining shares already up 10% YTD and seemingly poised for a breakout, what a great time to pick the brain of the always-insightful Brent Cook of Exploration Insights.
First of all, here's a chart of the HUI index showing the pending breakout of the shares, in general:
Brent was extraordinarily generous with his time and expertise today so it would be impossible for me to list all of the specific companies and shares that we discussed. Instead, you're just going to have to listen to the entire program. And you won't be disappointed! You might actually learn a thing or two along the way!
