Fund Objectives

The investment approach follows various strategies including investing in companies expected to increase shareholder value through successful exploration and development; seeking out leading companies that typically have lower costs, lower debt and/or outstanding assets; and reviewing all investment decisions and allowing cash reserves to build up when valuations are unattractive. The Fund may invest in equity securities of companies engaged in precious metals exploration, in mining for base metals, or in diversified mining activities. The Fund may invest in precious metals purchase warrants and convertible bonds issued by the types of companies described above. The Fund may invest in equity securities of companies with market capitalization of less than CDN $1 billion. The Fund has obtained regulatory relief permitting it to invest more than 10% of its assets in precious metals. Collectively, investments in gold and silver will represent at least half of the value of these investments.
