1) North Peak Resources (TSXV: NPR): Never before in history has NIA discovered a company worth less than $100 million that we are so extremely confident will become a $500M-$1B market cap company. NPR's CEO is the gold mining industry's #1 most successful executive of the last 20 years having first become founding CEO of Kirkland Lake Gold (KL) which saw its market cap rise from $10 million up to $10 billion and then afterwards he became founding CEO of Rupert Resources (TSXV: RUP) which saw its market cap rise from $10 million up to $1 billion. After leaving both KL and RUP in good hands Brian A Hinchcliffe is now the founding CEO of his third publicly traded gold company NPR and they have just acquired control of a past producing gold property that was responsible for producing among the highest grades of gold ever mined in the history of Nevada the world's #1 ranked mining jurisdiction. In the upcoming months, NPR will seek to verify and rapidly expand the Black Horse Gold Property's near-surface gold resource that was discovered in 1998 so that they can develop Black Horse into Nevada's next low-cost open-pit gold mine. NPR received permission from the BLM this week to launch its drilling programs. The timing is perfect with the Fed's March 16th rate hike set to launch gold's biggest bull run of all-time.
2) Universal Copper (TSXV: UNV): Never before in history has NIA discovered a company with such a low market cap and no debt that is actively exploring an advanced large scale (61,600 hectares) copper project that already has a current 43-101 indicated resource of 152.3 million tonnes grading 0.32% copper for a contained 1.09 billion lbs of copper. One month ago, UNV completed six drill holes totaling 3,000m at the Poplar Copper Project and sent the core half samples to the lab. The company said it, “anticipates that it will be releasing the assay results from our 3,000-metre six-hole program through January and February 2022. Once the results have been released, the Company will initiate metallurgical testing with material from the six holes later in the first quarter.” The CEO confirmed, “Visible copper was observed in the core at the time it was split, and we are looking forward to releasing the results as they are made available.” UNV is seeking to expand its Poplar copper mineralization at depth while expanding the limits of its higher-grade copper mineralization.
3) Broadwind (BWEN): We have never mentioned BWEN before but on February 23rd the Biden Administration will host the largest ever offshore wind auction, offering nearly 500,000 acres off the coast of New York and New Jersey for wind energy projects that could produce enough electricity to power nearly 2 million homes. BWEN could experience a huge short squeeze. BWEN is trading near an all-time low with a current market cap at $1.79 per share of only $34.87 million. BWEN has $2.355 million in cash and $5.445 million in debt for an enterprise value of only $37.96 million. BWEN has trailing twelve-month revenue of $159.93 million and positive EBITDA of $12.44 million. BWEN's current enterprise value is equal to only 0.237X revenue and 3.05X EBITDA! BWEN has a short interest as of December 31st of 1.071 million shares, which is more than double its short interest from one year ago when BWEN was trading at $8.90 per share.
