Brien Lundin talks about the bull market atmosphere for gold (and uranium) in New Orleans this year

“We cover every investment sector. We start off with geopolitics and drill down to every investment sector. We cover economic trends and everything that affects every major investment sector. Jim Blanchard started the conference in 1974 as a gold event… We are known as the preeminent event for metals and mining stocks especially in a bull market atmosphere like we have going on right now.” States Brien Lundin, CEO of Jefferson Financial, Inc. and Host and Producer of the New Orleans Investment Conference, in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Tracy Weslosky.

Brien went on to say that the gold sector is in a bull market which is confirmed by the movement in the gold prices, big mining stocks and also in the silver sector. He added that as the bull market progresses junior mining stocks will witness positive movement as well including the uranium sector and other strategic metals like rare earths. Brien said, “If this is anything like the early 2000s and I think it shows all the signs of being just that, then we will have another five to seven years of a tremendously positive upturn is gold and silver but also lots of other opportunities emerging.”

Brien also provided an update on the New Orleans Investment Conference. He said that the conference has a long history of attracting insightful people on the geopolitical and economic stages. Legendary figures like Margaret Thatcher, Alan Greenspan, Ayn Rand and many more have spoken at the event in the past. This year the conference has a list of speakers that includes Stephen Moore, a renowned economist who was recently nominated for the Feds, controversial political commentator Kevin D. Williamson, Doug Casey, Peter Boockvar, Dennis Gartman, Peter Schiff and many experts in metal and mining. Brien further added that these experts save their best recommendations to unveil them at the conference which is the best place to find opportunities.

Blue Sky Uranium’s CEO on competitive uranium production costs

“We did put out some news and basically it is our plans for the next six months going forward which talks about expanding and commencing exploration program on three different targets to potentially find additional deposits and to grow the current deposits that we have. That really builds what we have done in last just over two months basically… We are extremely pleased with the [PEA] results that we got. The two real key factors to zero in on these results are, 1. that our CAPEX costs are estimated under $130 million, that’s a very very low cost for construction to go into production for a type of mine as large as Ivana will be. Second of all is the production cost, the All-In-Sustaining-Cost is just over $18 a pound of uranium. It basically (if was in production today), it would rank it amongst the absolute lowest cost producers on the planet.” States Nikolaos Cacos, President, CEO and Director of Blue Sky Uranium Corp. (TSXV: BSK | OTCQB: BKUCF), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Tracy Weslosky.

Nikolaos went on to explain that the market is about to witness significant uranium demand because of a shortage of uranium supplies. Nikolaos also talked about Blue Sky’s recent pit sampling results from the Ivana Uranium-Vanadium deposit which indicate the potential for further expansion.

Glasier on Western Uranium & Vanadium’s processing technology and high-grade Sunday Mine

“All of our assets are in North America. In Western United States. We have got the highest grade vanadium probably in the world. That is why we have got a competitive advantage. Grades are everything no matter what commodity you are in. If you have the grades you have the low cost. That’s what we have certainly in vanadium. With Uranium we have got the technology which makes us the low cost producer. So again it’s the issue of your grades and your technology that drive your cost to the lower percentage of your competitors.” States George Glasier, President, CEO and Director of Western Uranium & Vanadium Corp. (CSE: WUC | OTCQX: WSTRF), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Tracy Weslosky.

Tracy Weslosky: You are one of the few stocks that actually made people money last year. Can you tell us what made Western Uranium & Vanadium different from many of your competitors?

George Glasier: Obviously it’s our vanadium content. Vanadium was the hottest commodity last year. It went from $10 to over $30 and we have got a large high-grade vanadium resource. I credit most of it to the fact that we were in the right commodity at the right time.

Tracy Weslosky: Many of our readers have been following the Sunday Mine Complex. We are very excited about the progress towards production. Can you tell us what’s happening?

George Glasier: We had an announcement late last year that we are going to open the mine primarily to sample and sent samples to a number of vanadium customers. We are still on track to do that. The best time to open the mine is in the spring. We are working on that. I would say that within the next several months we will see the opening and the beginning of the process, first to sample and then to define the high-grade vanadium resource that was left, without mining the uranium.

Tracy Weslosky: Would you mind giving our audience kind of an overview about your competitiveness and include how you are based in North America.

George Glasier: All of our assets are in North America. In Western United States. We have got the highest grade vanadium probably in the world. That is why we have got a competitive advantage. Grades are everything no matter what commodity you are in. If you have the grades you have the low cost. That’s what we have got certainly in vanadium. With Uranium we have the technology which makes us the low cost producer. So again it’s the issue of your grades and your technology that drive your cost to the lower percentage of your competitors.

Randy Hoback on the best mining jurisdiction in Canada – Saskatchewan.

Recently during PDAC 2019, Randy Hoback, Member of Parliament for Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, shared why Saskatchewan is ranked high amongst mining jurisdictions with InvestorIntel’s Peter Clausi.

Randy said: “Mining companies have recognized that if they do a project in Saskatchewan they can go through the entire process and actually get to the point of building a mine. There are regulatory things that they have to do, but we have seen companies like BHP Billiton just do the Jansen Project, you see the potash mines, uranium mines and here are examples where they have actually explored, done the work and now they are actually physically running mines. The First Nations are very excited about the mining sector. They do not view it as a negative thing and they actively participate in the mining sector.”

Blue Sky’s CEO on vanadium, plus having ‘one of the largest districts of potential uranium’ in the world

“We just put out our PEA (for the Ivana Uranium-Vanadium deposit at Amarillo Grande Project). Our PEA indicates, if it was in production today it would be one of the lowest cost uranium production in the world and with a strike length of over 145 kilometers. This entire district that we control has the potential to be one of the largest uranium districts in the planet, very significant discovery.” States Nikolaos Cacos, President, CEO and Director of Blue Sky Uranium Corp. (TSXV: BSK | OTCQB: BKUCF), in an interview with InvestorIntel Corp. CEO Tracy Weslosky.

Tracy Weslosky: We are both at PDAC 2019. I am an ardent fan of the uranium sector in general. Can you tell us what your most competitive advantage for all of you investors out there looking at uranium presently is? 

Nikolaos Cacos: We just put out our PEA (for the Ivana Uranium-Vanadium deposit at Amarillo Grande Project). Our PEA indicates, if it was in production today it would be one of the lowest cost uranium production in the world and with a strike length of over 145 kilometers. This entire district that we control has the potential to be one of the largest uranium districts in the planet, very significant discovery.

Tracy Weslosky: One of the largest districts of potential uranium on the planet. Is that correct? 

Nikolaos Cacos: That is correct, yes.

Tracy Weslosky: Okay. We have a global shortage of uranium, yes? 

Nikolaos Cacos: We have a shortage of uranium. I think more and more around the world, especially emerging markets, economies are looking at uranium and nuclear power because it is green, it is efficient and it is safe. As that demand continues to grow the shortage is going to be more and more exacerbated and the price of uranium is going to start moving up, as we have seen in the last year a 50% appreciation in the uranium.

Tracy Weslosky: If a new investor was coming and they were looking at Blue Sky Uranium, what would you want to leave them with? I know you are obviously in Argentina, which would be a competitive advantage. Can you talk to us about your competitive advantages for new investors looking at Blue Sky?

Nikolaos Cacos: If you are an investor, a new investor, you are looking to make money. The best way to make money is before something really begins to takeoff. You look at the fundamentals, you look at the management team and you look at what assets that we have got. We have got all three…to access the complete interview, click here
