There’s plenty to talk about on this week’s Northern Miner podcast as Matt swings by the International Metal Writers Conference in Vancouver to catch-up with some of our favourite newsletter analysts and companies. First, we sit down with the Mercenary Geologist Mickey Fulp to catch up on junior mining markets. Mickey discusses exploration innovation, the state of copper markets, and unveils his new red-metal pick, Trilogy Metals (TSX: TMQ; NYSE-MKT: TMQ). We talk district-scale land packages, the next generation of discoveries and much more!
Then Matt checks in with Yukon Mining Alliance chair and Western Copper and Gold (TSX: WRN; NYSE-MKT: WRN) CEO Paul West-Sells to talk about the upcoming field season in the Yukon and how the presence of so many major gold miners has impacted the jurisdiction. We discuss infrastructure challenges, including the potential for liquefied natural gas (LNG) and geopolitical risk.
