For this week's live chat at Inside the Market, we were joined by Brent Cook, editor of Exploration Insight.
With Brent's help, we're going to do our own exploring for some of the top junior mining stocks that investors may want to consider. Junior mining stocks are not for the risk-averse, but many - especially in the gold sector - have been beaten down so much recently that there could be bargains for the more adventuresome investor.
Brent is an independent exploration analyst with 30 years of experience in both property economics and geology evaluations. As a seasoned geologist, Brent's knowledge spans all areas of the mining business from the conceptual stage through to detailed technical and financial modeling related to mine development and production. He is quoted regularly in the media, including during frequent appearances on BNN-TV's Market Call.
A transcript follows below.
