Although 2013 has been a tough year for junior miners, True Gold Mining Inc. has pulled off two significant financings. In May, it raised $10-million from Teck Resources and last month it raised $17.4-million in a private placement from Liberty Metals & Mining Holdings, a subsidiary of Boston-based Liberty Mutual Insurance. Both deals were done at 33 cents. Later, on August 8, board chair Mark O'Dea bought 200,000 shares in the public market at 27.4 cents. True Gold is focused on mine development in Burkina Faso.
