Jeff Clark: Hitting Paydirt in Mining Stocks

April 28, 2023

Tom welcomes Jeff Clark back to the show! Jeff is the Founder of and author of the new book “Paydirt.” He started outlining the book during Covid, with the goal of making it entertaining and engaging, yet simple and straightforward. Sixteen other experts from the industry also contributed to the book.

Jeff believes we are on the cusp of another bull market cycle, and mining is one of the few areas left with good return potential. When it enters the mania phase, he won’t hesitate to sell, as it’s important to lock in profits. He urges investors to not be afraid to sell miners, as they should be seen as girlfriends rather than wife material.

Jeff then explains the Lassonde Curve and how it can help investors understand where a mining equity is during the lifecycle of a developing project. He also stresses the importance of discipline when positioning, recognizing red flags in miners, and taking advice from those in the industry.
