Brigus Gold and GLR Resources Agree on Equipment Contract

We recently bought shares of Brigus @ $1.88 using today’s close of $1.62 this means a 13,8% loss. The loss can be explained by tanking gold prices, the fundamentals have not changed, and we still consider Brigus to be a solid BUY.

Brigus News Release:

Halifax, Nova Scotia; and Kirkland Lake, Ontario – January 27, 2011– Brigus Gold Corp. (“Brigus”; TSX: BRD; NYSE Amex: BRD) and GLR Resources Inc.

Positive Exploration Drilling Results Continue at Brigus Gold’s Black Fox Complex

Recently we bought shares of Brigus Gold (BRD) @ CA$1.88 today the stock closed @ CA$1.83 We think the stock has the potential of doubling its value within a year and we will continue to watch this company closely.

Brigus Gold News Release:

Halifax, Nova Scotia; January 12, 2011 – Brigus Gold Corp. (“Brigus” or the “Company”) (NYSE Amex: BRD; TSX: BRD) has received all assay results from 14 drill holes and partial assay results from an additional three drill holes as part of an  ongoing exploration program at the Company’s 100% owned Black Fox Complex located in the Timmins Mining District, Ontario. The current exploration program is designed to expand the Black Fox Complex gold resource by systematically drilling mineralized structures.

Highlights from recent assay results include (all uncut, average gold grades with estimated true widths, unless otherwise noted):

Contact Zone

  • GF10-106:
    • 8.40 grams of gold per tonne (“gpt”) over 3.99 metres (“m”), and
    • 3.08 gpt over 4.23 m

  • GF10-114:
    • 12.10 gpt over 12.27 m
      • including 168.65 gpt over 0.81m
  • GF10-125:
    • 3.26 gpt over 15.21 m
      • including 5.28 gpt over 3.03 m
      • including 7.19 gpt over 3.75 m

New Discovery – Grey Fox South

  • GF10-115:
    • 10.65 gpt over a core length of 6.0 m
      • including 23.32 gpt over a core length of 1.0 m
      • including 16.12 gpt over a core length of 1.0 m
      • including 18.84 gpt over a core length of 1.0 m

The exploration program is following up on historical data and drill results while also testing new targets within the Black Fox Complex.  Three drill rigs are testing high potential gold targets at the Black Fox Complex  including: the Contact Zone, the Historic Gibson Deposit, the Gibson Shear, the School House Zone, the Hislop North Zone and the new Grey Fox South target recently identified from the positive results from drill  hole GF10-115. All targets are located within four kilometres (“km”) of the Company’s operating Black Fox Mine, providing the opportunity for Black Fox resource additions and rapid advancement.  In addition,  during the first quarter of 2011, Brigus will commence drilling on the Black Fox Mill property, host to the past producing Stock gold mine, located 31 km west of the Black Fox Mine.

Howard Bird, P. Geo., Vice President of Exploration for Brigus, said, “The Black Fox Complex drill program continues to confirm continuity of gold mineralization from multiple drill holes within the Contact Zone.  The discovery of high grade gold mineralization in the new Grey Fox South target, from hole GF10-115 which returned 10.65 gpt over a core length of 6.0 metres, is very encouraging and will be followed up with additional drilling.”

Contact Zone

The Contact Zone consists of a steeply dipping mineralized fault contact between the north-south trending metasediments and mafic volcanic rocks, and two other parallel mineralized zones.  The Contact Zone extends for at least 1,200 m and is open along strike and at depth.  The general dip of the feature is 78 degrees to the east with horizontal widths varying from 3.5 m to 35 m.

GF10-106displayed some visible gold and intersected 8.40 gpt gold over a true width of 3.99 m at 160 vertical m from surface and 3.08 gpt of gold over a true width of 4.23 m at 240 vertical m from surface.  The results from GF10-106 have expanded the gold mineralization from the assay results of GF09-45, drilled in 2009 on the same vertical section, which returned 6.07 gpt gold over a true width of 2.95m at approximately 130 vertical m from surface.

GF10-114intersected 12.10 gpt gold over a true width of 12.27 m, including 168.65 gpt gold over a true width of 0.81 m with visible gold in the sample.  The positive gold intersection is significant as it is located approximately 200 m along strike to the south from the main Contact Zone area. There are 27 assay samples pending from GF10-114.

Hole GF10-125 displayed some visible gold and intercepted 3.26 gpt gold over a true width of 15.21 m beginning at 85 vertical m from surface, including 5.28 gpt gold over a true width of 3.03 m, and 7.19 gpt gold over a true width of 3.75 m.   There are still 147 sample assays pending from GF10-125.  Hole GF10-103, drilled on vertical section with GF10-125, intersected 3.03 gpt gold over a true width of 2.83 m at 105 vertical m from surface, and 3.20 gpt gold over a true width of 2.37 m at 225 vertical m from surface.

Assay results over 2.0 gpt gold are listed in a table in Appendix 1 of this news release posted on the Company’s website at www.brigusgold.com.  An additional six drill holes have been completed on the Contact Zone and assays are pending.

Exploration Outlook

Commenting on the exploration potential at the Black Fox Complex, Mr. Bird said, “Over the next two years, our exploration team will focus on adding significant ounces to the gold mineral resources at the Black Fox Complex.  In addition to surface drilling, we also plan to target resource additions from underground drill stations at the Black Fox Mine.  Underground drilling will initially target gold mineralization to the southeast of the last underground drill station to follow up on positive results from previous drilling in 2004 and 2005 where three drill holes returned true width gold intersections of 31.16 gpt over 6.25 m, 7.48 gpt over 3.49 m and 12.65 gpt over 3.07 m.”

Surface drilling was conducted by Norex Drilling and was supervised by the Black Fox exploration staff.  All 2010 sample analyses reported herein were performed by Polymet Labs of Cobalt, Ontario, which is ISO 9001:2000 certified in North America using standard fire assay procedures. Intercepts cited do not necessarily represent true widths, unless otherwise noted. Brigus Gold’s quality control checks include insertion of blanks and standards to ensure laboratory accuracy.

Cautionary Note to U.S. Investors Concerning Estimates of Mineral Resources

U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into reserves.

My Method Explained. How To Build Up Your Own Retirement Plan In 3 Steps

Step 1: Pick the right company!

In the beginning of 2009 I finally realised that the continuous devaluation of fiat currencies like the US Dollar and the Euro was likely to go on the coming years. Both in the USA and in Europe money is being printed at alarming rates, yet the only thing you’re hearing lately is that we are all doing so well! Well, don’t believe it! All that money being printed has to go somewhere, and there you have your equity bull-market explained. I realised that true value could only be stored in silver and gold.  How could I benefit from the enormous gold and silver bull-market that I was expecting. The largest leverage to gold and silver prices is always found in junior mining stock. I am a big admirer of Warren Buffet and believe in value investment. Using value investment principles and after months of research and reading piles of year-reports and books, I finally picked six companies.  With all my saving money transferred to a on-line broker I bought shares of six companies.

Step 2: Take your profit, and gain “free” stock.

With prices of gold and silver soaring in 2010 just like I expected, many shares in my portfolio were exceeding 250% gains. So I sold about 40%-50% of all my shares in these companies getting back even more than the original investment. The remaining shares in these companies were now basically “free” shares. Since large corrections in gold and silver prices are likely each time after another record is shattered, I just waited for this correction, and used the money to GO BACK TO STEP 1!!! So far I picked five new companies to invest in, and am looking for one more to complete my second round of step 1. With prices of gold and silver prices rising for years to come I hope to repeat step-1 and step-2 many times. I now have created what I call step-3 companies.

Step 3: Wait, wait, wait

As you might have noticed I only sold about half the shares of the companies I picked. All the companies I picked mainly have developed from explorers to producers. I intend to NEVER SELL the shares I own. There might always be a exception in special circumstances however. Where will these companies be in 10, 20 or even 25 years from now. I strongly believe that all companies will continue to develop, mergers take overs etc. who knows…. But with governments making the same mistakes over and over again, the way up for gold and silver still is very long. In the years to come the new Goldcorp, Barrick or Rio Tinto will present its-self and I am certain that parts of my portfolio will be or be part of that company. It is very likely that companies in the portfolio will start paying dividends at a certain point (e.g. 5-15 years)

These step-3 companies are my retirement, my protection against inflation!

Can you prove this?

Well, step-1 and step-2 have been proven already. Step-3 only partially.

How did you do so far then?

Bought in 2009:

International Royalty Company: Got lucky on that one, made a 101% profit in a take-over battle just months after buying it. Sold all shares.

Avino Silver & Gold mines: bought @ US$0.63 : sold 40% of my shares @ US$2,57 (a 307% gain) creating a step-3 company for my portfolio.

First Majestic: bought @ CA$2.66 : sold 45% of my shares @ CA$10.88 (a 309% gain) creating a step-3 company for my portfolio.

Great Panther: bought @ CA$0.84 : sold 50% of my shares @ CA$2.75 (a 227% gain) creating a step-3 company for my portfolio.

Minera Andes: bought @ CA$0.72: sold of my shares @ CA$2.56 (a 255% gain) creating a step-3 company for my portfolio.

Silver Wheaton: bought @ US$9,95 and a second step-1 for Silver Wheaton @US14,95 in 2010. I sold 50% of all my Silver Wheaton shares @US$39.07 creating a step-3 company for my portfolio.

Bought in 2010:

Seabridge Gold: bought @ US$28.36 is still a step-1 company! We think it might take up to 3 or 4 years to reach step-2 but if investors discover the true value of this company it might come much sooner as well!

Rubicon Minerals: bought @ CA$3.49 today the stock closed @ CA$5.49 meaning a 57.3% gain. In between step-1 and step-2.

Copper Creek Gold (Highly Speculative!!): bought @ CA$0.075 today the stock closed @ CA$0.09 meaning a 20% gain. Still step-1, but highly speculative!

Excellon Recources: bought @ CA$0.99 today the stock closed @ CA$1.18 meaning a 19% gain. Still a step-1 company!

Brigus Gold: bought @ US$1.88 today the stock closed @ US$1.77 meaning a 5,9% loss. Very much a step-1 company!

What do I expect in 2011?

More volatility is likely to rule the commodity markets. Food prices will soar, the oil price will rise gradually as will the price of copper. For a gold rally we will have to wait till August again, then I see a spot price of about $1600-$1700 before the end of this year. Silver will outperform gold again in 2011. I expect the price of silver to be less volatile than the price of gold. When the gold rally in August commences again, silver will shoot up like a star! During the year I think the gold/silver ratio will decline gradually as a result of this. At the end of 2011 I expect the gold/silver ratio to be below 35. IF this happens, I will be able add some step-3 companies to my portfolio from the 2010 stock picks, and use the money at the next correction to buy new step-1 companies.

Stock Pick: Brigus Gold (AMEX:BRD)

Today gold and silver finally entered a proper correction. We think prices will level now, and start climbing a bit day-by-day till the end of the year. This correction has given us the change to buy into two beautiful companies. Yesterday we announced our first pick Excellon Resources. Today we bought shares of Brigus Gold @ $1.88
