  1. Hi BMR team,

    How will the warrants that are in the money be effecting the share price of CCW. The volume is looking great but seems there are allot of warrants at .55cents in the money now.

    Comment by Joshgs — January 6, 2020 @ 7:08 pm

  2. Those 55-cent warrants aren’t even touchable until March, Joshgs, as they were part of the mid-November PP (4 million of them, which isn’t a lot, and that PP was tightly structured among the right investors).

    Other than that, just a few 90-cent warrants and the 2.5 million 50-cent warrants from the Sept. 2019 PP which won’t be touched until later I am sure (the other 50-cent warrants from Jan. 2018 PP expire in a few days – fully exercised, no doubt, for some nice extra cash for CCW).

    In short, limited warrant overhang and all warrants in tight hands because of how PP’s have been handled, different from most companies.

    Also, CCW is in a bonafide discovery situation and literally any hole at this point could be the trigger that sends this stock thru the roof. Warrants will not be an impediment.

  3. Thanks Jon,

    Good to know on the warrants as I wasn’t sure if they qualified for the same 4 month hold. I’m greatly looking forward to the next months on all the developments on this play.

    Comment by Joshgs — January 6, 2020 @ 9:34 pm

  4. What we saw this morning on CCW, Joshgs, was a warrant cross as I was one of the open market buyers at 68 cents…I’m hearing all the warrants that expire Jan. 12 at 50 cents are being exercised, and any selling related to that is now out of the way (this morning was the last batch)…CCW is fully cashed up and ready to really rock at Castle (and Beaver, by the way)…

    Comment by Jon - BMR — January 7, 2020 @ 8:43 am

  5. Hi Jon,
    I guess we should expect some news very soon on CCW! But what about GGM? I’m seeing interesting large crosses and trades the last few weeks with them as well!! Could you comment if this is related in anyway with CCW? And if so could we see GGM go for a run here as well? Thx

    Comment by Alec — January 7, 2020 @ 11:24 am

  6. Jon, you still buy more of CCW ? If you don’t mind telling us, how many shares do you own? I think subscribers like to know how much you “walk the talk”. 🙂

  7. Check out tonight’s update, Sylvain!

    Comment by Jon - BMR — January 7, 2020 @ 3:05 pm

  8. Beautiful!!! Looking forward to it.

  9. Gold, Silver soaring: Tens of missiles fired by Iran at two Iraqi bases housing U.S. and coalition soldiers, including 1 base that President Trump visited over the holidays…apparently surface-to-surface ballistic missiles, a major escalation after the U.S. took out terrorist Soleimani…first reports say no U.S. casualties but some Iraqi casualties…

    An attack against an American base is an attack against the United States of America – Trump has to respond with force…

    Comment by Jon - BMR — January 7, 2020 @ 4:25 pm

  10. Hi Alec,

    Re: GGM, I I think there is increased speculation that there will be a buy-out of GGM this year. GGM is now targeting high grade gold, and find it actually. Frank’s is very open about his wish to sell GGM, at a cost of around 60$ to 120$ per oz in the ground, not based on the share price.

    Another point that makes this sell most likely is that the same team, more or less, is running the show at CCW. With the increased activity at CCW, I think it makes sense to let GGM go. The increase in gold price will make the GGM assets interesting.

    My two cents.
