This week we’re joined by the Mercenary Geologist, Mickey Fulp, to talk about the rising spectre of geopolitical risk for miners! Matt sits down to chat about a few recent high-profile cases, including: Eldorado Gold (TSX: ELD; NYSE: EGO) in Greece; Acacia Mining (LON: ACA) in Tanzania; Tahoe Resources (TSX: THO; NYSE: TAHO) in Guatemala; and much more! Has Canada been a major benefactor as companies turn their eyes back home?
Matt sits down with Exploration Insights’ analyst Joe Mazumdar to talk development risk and investor strategy in this week’s episode! The discussion includes a round-up of recent development projects that have experienced some growing pains, including: Red Eagle Mining‘s (TSX: R; US-OTC: RDEMF) San Ramon operation in Colombia; New Gold‘s (TSX: NGD; NYSE-MKT: NGD) Rainy River mine in Ontario; and TMAC Resources (TSX: TMR; US-OTC: TMMFF) Hope Bay project in Nunavut.
This week we’re talking infrastructure! The show will specifically focus on the Sept. 2 announcement of the $360-million Yukon Resource Gateway Project. The joint federal and territorial initiative is designed to “improve road access in two mineral-rich areas: the Dawson Range in central Yukon and the Nahanni Range Road in southeastern Yukon.” The project will reportedly upgrade “over 650 km” of road and build or replace numerous bridges, culverts, and stream crossings.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
