The Gold Report
After several years of bear markets for miners, many mining equities have lept upward in the last few months. LiTHIUM X Energy ranks among the leaders of the pack, up many-fold. Barry Allan, vice chair of mining at Mackie Research, and Research Analyst Ryan Hanley put out a report in March for the PDAC convention, highlighting a number of promising mining companies. In this interview with The Gold Report, Allan and Hanley profile a handful of those companies, including LiTHIUM X.
The Gold Report: Barry and Ryan, in March, you attended the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, the largest mining gathering in the world. What is your main takeaway?
Barry Allan: Probably the biggest takeaway this year was while attendance was down marginally, the quality of the companies in attendance was very, very good. It wasn’t this frenetic activity of a bunch of people running around looking for meetings, as there were better quality companies in attendance and making presentations.
