In an environment of unlimited Money Printing and unlimited Government, how can you protect your wealth? Historically, one choice has been sound junior mining ventures led by superior teams. Torq Resources (sponsor) is exactly that kind of company. Shawn Wallace and Ivan Bebek have a strong track record of building successful companies, with resulting high returns to shareholders.
Shawn explained the Torq Strategy: “The team has been very deliberate and ‘picky’ in choosing projects and moving them forward.” They were making great progress in Chile, when Covid struck. The accompanying travel restrictions presented a major obstacle, but Torq soon crafted a brilliant new plan.
In South America, personal relationships are everything. Doing business on Zoom is not an option. Michael Henrichsen (Chief Geologist) had vast South American experience and a relationship network second to none. He created a team of “Finders” that brought a steady stream of quality projects in for review. The team was so effective, they became a permanent part of the Company after the Margarita acquisition. Now they’re closing in on more projects of similar scope & scale. Shawn is very optimistic about Margarita’s. He believes they’re in the right place at the right time. Chile has many areas that are unexplored and others that were cherry-picked in decades past. Large new copper deposits are extremely scarce. New exploration and production technologies could give these properties new life and big profits.
Shawn’s partnership with Ivan Bebek has been a major success story. Their backgrounds and experience fully complement one another. Both are ardent proponents of tight share structures and the requirement that the bulk of capital raised must go into the ground. And they both share a passion for the business and the industry
As in all their ventures, insider ownership is high. Shawn and Ivan have skin in the game, their interests as always are aligned with their shareholders.
Looking ahead, there are a number of factors that should affect the share price. First is near-term commencement of the Margarita pre-drill exploration program to hone in on the best drill targets. Measure twice, cut once for best results and use of capital. Next, as Shawn points out, new acquisitions are on the horizon. Finally, higher copper and gold prices will likely be reflected in the share price.
