GMIN compromising from the start

This desk is surprised to learn that G Mining Ventures (GMIN) has decided to ignore its own corporate strategy and buy Tocantinzinho from Eldorado. Let’s check the purchase against GMIN’s own criteria:

GMIN has stated it intends to purchase 2 to 3 assets and get at least one of them operating within two years. Presumably, that will be the second asset they purchase, because this desk would lay $1,000 against a plate of fejoada that Tocantinzinho continues to be a financial black hole. Way back when, one of the first pieces of mining advice I ever received was “Avoid The Tapajos”. True then, true now and true in the future but that doesn’t matter to GMIN, these specially created A-Lister mining teams get years of good grace before the eventual failure. Remember TMAC.

    Sailfish recently split up and sold their royalty on this property to Osisko and Metalla. Wonder where they’ll invest next. Couldn’t possibly be Nicaragua?
