4 Top Mining Penny Stocks To Watch
Mining stocks have been somewhat of a hot commodity in 2020. The price of silver and gold, for example, has been increasing in price in recent times. What makes small-cap mining stocks appealing to investors is the price. Penny stocks, for example, are considered any asset trading under $5. So this means that people can invest in mining penny stocks at a low cost. While these types of stocks are volatile, there is still profit to be made with them.
Another aspect attracting investors to mining stocks, is the current state of the economy. Many new investors are showing up in the market to try and make back some of the losses this year caused. That makes these stocks under $5 a perfect option for those looking to enter the market. The most common mining companies are those that search for gold and silver. So gold stocks and silver stocks are generally what investors are looking for.

Mining Stocks To Watch: Freeman Gold Corp.
Let’s first talk about Freeman Gold Corp. (CSE: FMAN Stock Report) (OTC: FMANF) on this list of mining penny stocks. Freeeman is a gold company that primarily will work on mineral exploration at multiple places around the world. The company acquires, explores, and develops a variety of mineral properties under its umbrella. One of these is the Lemhi Mine claim, which has more a 5000-meter diamond drill program going on at the moment. In addition to gold deposits, the company also runs copper and silver deposits.
In recent news for Freeman Gold, it acquired a back in-right from Yamana Gold Inc. This back-in right is for its Lemhi Project mineral property. Freeman gave Yamana Gold Inc. more than 4 million common shares in the deal. In the Lemhi project’s historical region, there was two mining claims called Moon #100 and Moon #101. Recently the company acquired these claims, adding it to its already large involvement at the Lemhi Project.
The CEO of the company Will Randall said, “The acquisition of the Moon Claims achieves this objective and mitigates the risk of limiting future resource estimates by excluding any ounces contained within the claims and, just as importantly, limiting further ounces due to pit design constraints.” Now, Freeman can incorporate these new claims into its future work. It received a full property package with no back-in rights at all.
Mining Stocks To Watch: New Gold Inc.

New Gold’s revenue has gone down 7.9% in the last year, but it seems like revenue and profit growth trends could have sparked more favorable sentiment this year. NGD stock price has gone up 53%.

One recent news piece regarding the company is a bit controversial.
The CEO of the company abruptly stepped down after tapes were released of him boasting about his connections to state and federal leaders. Despite this recent controversy, it did not have a large scale effect on NAK stock price. Since this news came out, NAK stock has continued consolidating. Could the company come back from this?
