well, I guess we lost all the old posts, and will have to start yet another new board after the AMEX Listing
for now let me post the results from one of our Holdings, SilverCrest, and you might want to consider owning a chunk of STVZF, here's why. They took a pretty good hammering, along with most other mining stocks recently, but way way overdone with STVZF
SilverCrest Reports Q1 2012 Financial Results; Cash Flow from Operations of $12.2 Million (.14 Per Share)
they just reported Q1 with Earnings of 7 Cents, Cash Flow per share of 14 Cents, Target price of $3.75 to $5.75, well of their old High of over $3, and known for being very conservative in their Guidance, as good as it is. Excellent choice for anyone looking for a Silver holding, yet getting a lot of gold considered a by-product. DD it soon because I don't think it will be this low too long. and BTW they just gave Sandstorm 1,958 ozs of gold for their cut of Q1 Gold sales. Currently though a by-product they should bring in at least 33,000ozs this year on their waay to doubling production by 2014, some pastes
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire -05/15/12)- SilverCrest Mines Inc. (the "Company") (TSX-V: SVL)(STVZF.PK)(STVZF.PK) is pleased to announce its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012 (all figures in U.S. dollars unless otherwise specified.)
During the first quarter, total production was consistent with our plan and cash operating costs were below plan. As a result, we are confident in achieving our 2012 guidance of production of 435,000 silver ounces and 33,000 gold ounces at an average cash operating cost of $8.20 per silver equivalent ounce."
J. Scott Drever, President stated; "We had an excellent beginning for 2012. In Q1 we sold 641,546 silver equivalent ounces, with an average cash operating costs of $7.00 per ounce. The Santa Elena open pit heap leach mine operations continue to perform well and generated cash flows of $12.2 million which will help finance the Santa Elena Expansion plan to double metals production by 2014 and accelerate the exploration and development of our polymetallic La Joya Project.
SVL is one of the few stocks out there where the analyst targets are all moving upwards. Jennings has practically tripled from $2.25 to $6.50 while Canaccord started higher at $4.00 and has since raised it by 44% to $5.75. Even Stonecap's which was released just over a week ago is 65% above SVL's current price. GLTA

The better time to get in is just around startup. It's at this time that institutional investors get in, and then we see a large ramp up as the mine enters full production. This is where Silvercrest is currently at.<<
I agree with your statement.
Hey Top, the numbers for STVZF.pk really look very good..are you buying any at this price?...the stock has fallen 42% from its yearly high of $3.17...may be a good time to nibble..what think ye?
I some at $2.26 or so. They had just announced Q4 results, and delivered a bunch of metal to Sandstorm. Then the price of precious metals got raided, and Silvercrest's stock price dropped significantly, and I bought a bunch more at around $1.65.
They have just gotten their mine going, and are delivering metal, and making money. They've spent plenty of time exploring, building their mine, and getting permits. Now, that the money is just starting to roll in, the market has not yet reacted to this undervalued stock. Volume is light, and this stock isn't on anyone's radar. I think that in a few quarters, we'll see a significant appreciation in stock price.
To be frank, I was amazed that I was able to get in around $1.65, and view it as a gift. There is still a significant upside to this stock.
By the way, even though the name is Silvercrest Mines, they currently make most of their money from gold sales (as silver is still very undervalued).
To me, being a Sandstorm investor, has the further benefit of highlighting opportunities in up-and-comming mining stocks.
i hope you DD'd STYZF, SilverCrest, one of Sandstorm's first Deals. They started Production 2 QTR;s ago, posted 7 & 11 Cents for 18 Cents in Earnings for 2 QTR's Targets range from $3.75 to $5.25 and well off their old High of 3.11

ROTH Capital Partners to Host Emerging Global Mining Corporate Access Day in London on May 23, 2012
11:28 am ET 04/26/2012 - Business Wire
Event to Feature One-on-One Meetings Between Institutional Investors and Senior Company Management Representing a Variety of Resource and Mining Sectors, Including Gold, Silver, Uranium and Industrial Minerals
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 26, 2012-- ROTH Capital Partners (ROTH), www.roth.com, a full service investment bank focused on identifying growth opportunities for corporate and institutional clients, today announced it will host its Emerging Global Mining Corporate Access Day on Wednesday, May 23, 2012 at the Hempel Hotel in London, U.K. The event will give investors the opportunity to interact with senior management of a select group of companies representing a variety of resource and mining sectors, including gold, silver, uranium and industrial minerals.
“We believe the mining sector presents a compelling opportunity for small-cap growth investors. Mining equities have noticeably underperformed the underlying metals and broader markets as of late, which positions them for a near-term correction, in our view. We believe lower equity valuations could stimulate acquisition activity in the junior mining space, stemming from larger companies seeking to acquire rather than internally develop new resources or through consolidation of underfunded projects. Furthermore, we contend there is opportunity for investors to rotate into the space as the dramatic upward price trend of metals appears to be waning and investors look to take on select project risk to generate returns rather than through simple exposure via ETFs. Investors that can identify the right companies with the most compelling projects, locations, and management teams can be rewarded,” commented, Brian Post, CFA, ROTH Research Analyst.
ROTH‘s one day event will provide investors with extensive interaction and on-on-one meetings with management teams from global mining companies, providing in-depth insights. In addition to one-on-one meetings, the event will feature sector overview commentary from Michael Legg and Brian Post, CFA who lead ROTH's research activities in the Resources sector.
The event is for institutional clients of ROTH and is by invitation only. For more information, please contact your ROTH sales representative at (949) 720-5700 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Sandstorm and SilverCrest are 2 of the approx dozen attending with the High-Rollers
