Mining stocks are trading up and down today on the TSXV. Mining has remained a strong industry in Canada for decades. Unlike blockchain and cannabis stocks, mining stocks aren’t driven by ‘hype.’ Most times, when a mining stock is up, it’s due to a mining discovery or acquisition of new territory.
Today, we’ll take a look at two mining stocks that are trending on the TSXV.
GT Gold Corp. (TSXV:GTT)
GT Gold is a gold exploration company that is headquartered in Vancouver, BC. The mining company also explores for silver and copper. The company’s main property, the Tatogga property, is located in British Columbia.
Eight hours ago, the mining stock announced the final and deepest hole results of its 2018 North porphyry drill program.
“As with previous holes from Saddle North, our final hole of the 2018 Saddle North drill program delivers an exceptional porphyry-style gold-copper intercept and it’s a great way to begin 2019,” says Charles Greig, Vice-President of Exploration for GT Gold. “Hole 109 confirms we have a large, high-grade system with grades increasing to depth.”
Despite its positive news, the mining stock is down. According to Yahoo Finance, GTT is trading at $0.66 a share, down -$0.08 (-10.81%).
