Mister McEwen joins Mr. Dow, Mr. Jones, Mr. Standard and Mr. Poors

Here’s an interesting and totally, utterly un-egoistic development. Rob McEwen (yeah, him) has put his name to a new index of exploration-stage junior gold miners. Humbly called “The McEwen Junior Gold Index”, the idea is to track a basket of explorers on a weighted basis. Ther minimum market cap for inclusion is an accessible $50m and it’s done in loonies.

Amazingly enough two McEwen companies make the list, Rimfire and US Gold (that perhaps should be re-named Mexico Silver, but that’s just me). Anyway, here’s the link where you get the full list of companies included and the read-more-about-it page, too. So go check it out. All in all not a bad initiative, name or no name.

UPDATE: Yes, I confused Rimfire and Rubicon….thanks for the mails, folks. Just goes to show the normal Otto ignorance ex-LatAm (also goes to show I should DD a bit). BTW, McEwen also holds chunks of GUY.to which is on the list.
