TNR Gold Oversubscribes Private Placement TNR.v, CZX.v, ABX, NG.to, CGH.to, LMA.to, LAT.v, HUI, XAU, FXI

"From an investor’s perspective, the goal is to own what China needs and China needs metals. And strategically, it could be easier for China’s state-owned corporations to fly under the radar and buy or take positions in smaller foreign corporations rather than their larger cousins. We return to our long-term thesis: own quality junior exploration and mining companies with superior projects. Canaccord Adams"
Now our next industrial revolution play in Lithium, REE, Gold and Copper has the money and interesting shareholders to connect its ambitions to place where the Growth is.
Placement was oversubscribed and made very fast without any brokers involved - it is very positive sign in the current market: financing is available for the strong companies.

"Insider can sell in a lot of circumstances - they buy only in one case: when they know with all available to them information that company is still undervalued. Now he is not alone in his beliefs and we like his new company. It is always important to see that management is also buying into financing and not just cashing in cheap options. It looks like Gary Schellenberg and Kirill Klip made a good team moving TNR Gold fast forward above many other juniors still day dreaming about last summer happy days which are gone forever."
