Lithium and REE: TNR Gold Announces Fully Subscribed $3 Million Private Placement TNR.v, CZX.v, WLC.v, RM.v, LI.v, CLQ.v, SQM, ROC, FMC, AVL.to, RES.v

"We will add from our side, that company (TNR Gold) was trading at the same level in Spring - Summer 2008 before any lithium and REE properties were acquired. It is an early stage exploration play and access to the capital will be critical for the company. Any significant result from the properties could generate a Buy signal from recent consolidation stage. Stock was in an accumulation stage around 0.3CAD recently and Insiders increased their position according to filing. It is the only company from this sector with drivers in lithium, REE, gold and copper with catalyst in the form of announced strategy to spin off International Lithium and Alaska Gold and Copper properties could follow this approach.
We own the shares of this company among others discussed on this blog, please do not take anything as a solicitation to buy or sell any particular stock on this blog

"Investors are coming into all value chain of the lithium sector our Lithium and REE Junior Mining Plays will start to move soon hopefully as well."

We have a very positive news for the company - the last crucial piece in its strategic plan to be put in place: access to the capital. Insiders can sell in a lot of circumstances, they buy only in one - when they like what they see in the company and they think with their money that the company is undervalued and has a growth potential. Gary Schellenber and all team at TNR Gold apparently made a very good effort this Fall and manage to find strategic investors in the company. Financing is without any fees and shows continuous commitment of a majority shareholder. Strong hands are accumulating shares in the company and will allow it to develop its business plan without distraction from short term minded financial players in the market. After closing of this financing company will be transformed almost overnight into the very aggressive player in Lithium and REE market with capital to prove its ambitions. Company has extended its shareholder base and added a very important link to energy market players and green energy venture capital. Now we have in play Non-Executive Chairman Kirill Klip further commitment to TNR Group of companies, Canada Zinc Metals with its Chinese connections, industry insiders like Barrick Gold, Nova Gold, NGeX Resources and group of funds supporting this company: Pinetree Capital and Tocqueville Fund among them. We have found a new Interview on TNR Gold home page, which can bring more light about Company plans.
