Which Mining Stocks Are Best Right Now?

There’s no denying that mining stocks and precious metals have gained attention a lot more recently. One of the biggest reasons for the most recent surge has been the U.S. attack in the Middle East. This saw the killing of Iran’s top general, Qasem Soleimani and a massive uprising against the United States.

In the midst of this, there are also questions related to the continued China-US trade war. Though there was a “phase 1” deal fleshed out, much is still to be seen. One of the main points of contention is what happens after “phase 1.” How many other phases will there be and can we achieve them before the 2020 U.S. election?

Best Mining Stocks To Watch: Aurcana Corporation (AUN)

Another one of the top mining stocks to watch right now has been Aurcana Corporation (TSXV:AUN). Shares have risen by nearly 60% within the last 40 days, however, the last piece of news came well-before then.

Back in early November, Aurcana released an update on its underground development and resource expansion plans. The company has initiated a vertical development to access the 1500 level at its Revenue-Virinius mine in Colorado. Once that’s complete, it will be able to expand laterally as well. By doing so, Aurcana expects to gain information that could allow “inferred” resources to be converted to a minimum category of indicated resources. This would allow the conversion of these resources to reserves.

Essentially, the company hopes that if this is successful, there’s potential to increase the life of the mine. Kevin Drover, President and CEO of Aurcana, stated, “We continue to cross important milestones in the ongoing development and progress to production for our Revenue-Virginius mine. I look forward to moving to Colorado to be closer to operations at the site and the efficiencies it should bring, setting us up for exciting opportunities for value creation in 2020.”
