The Right Vehicle. The Right Market.

The new decade has started with a bang for gold, with the yellow metal exceeding $1,900 an ounce for the first time since 2011. In the face of economic instability, major mining stocks have broken out. Yet, Canadian junior resource equities – the lifeblood of the mining business – are just starting to garner interest.

Palisades Goldcorp was launched to capitalize on this deep value disconnect between the broader commodities market and junior resource equities. Money that has poured into bullion dealers, gold-focused ETFs, and major mining companies over the past few months has just begun to trickle down to junior resource companies. Their share prices remain beaten down, with their management teams forced to raise capital at highly discounted valuations. However, this state of affairs cannot and will not persist. As the commodities bull market gains steam, junior resource companies are poised to outperform the natural resource sector as a whole.

With a portfolio of $210M of resource equities, Palisades Goldcorp is Canada’s new resource-focused merchant bank. We offer investors exposure to a diversified portfolio of junior and micro-cap resource stocks through our participation in private placement financings, while maintaining a core stable of holdings that demonstrate world class potential.

Palisades is the first investment vehicle of its kind in the natural resource sector, with a best practice approach. Upon listing, Palisades will be the only public company in Canada without an option plan. Management and key shareholders own 40% of the company and are tied into a 3-year escrow. Most importantly, our team represents the best in the business and has a demonstrated track record of making money for shareholders.

A generational opportunity in gold

Commodities today are grossly undervalued. Key metrics show that the sector is cheaper right now than they were in 2000, prior to the start of the last major bull market in commodities. As of the beginning of 2020, the mining industry was trading at its lowest recorded valuation in the past century*.

Palisades Goldcorp offers investors a vehicle through which they can gain exposure to the most leveraged segment of any commodities bull market – the junior resource equities. A confluence of factors makes this the perfect time to deploy capital into junior resource companies. Global stock markets may have finally cracked; interest rates are trending negative. Meanwhile, gold, silver, and other commodities have shown resilience in this environment, signaling a sea change.

The key point is this – investors have an opportunity to purchase shares in high-quality junior resource companies at extremely cheap valuations, right as the next great commodities boom begins.
