".....My first miner to watch is Golden Minerals (AUMN). This is a company bleeding cash, but showing some signs of life this year. 2011 saw under $2M in revenue, but 2012 showed growth - not nearly enough - to $26.1M. This junior has some staying power with $285M in hard assets and mining equipment, so I wouldn't count it out. Juniors can grow quickly once they find profitable and stable projects, so stay posted......"
