  1. 3,445 Posts.
    Any views on the picks made by Miningnews on the top 25 resource stocks? I personally hold AUZ, BRW, TIR and TTR and am looking seriously at IGO.

    A sobering thought is that Gympie Gold is one of the entrants.

    Was also hoping for a mention of AGM, but not to be.

    RESOURCESTOCKS.

    Australian Mines
    THE near-certainty of quick cash from operating a small nickel mine near Kambalda proved too much of an attraction for Australian Mines which had started life as an explorer in the ultra-remote Musgrave Ranges in the dead centre of Australia ...

    Breakaway Resources
    HIGHER copper prices cannot come soon enough for Breakaway, owner of the small, but high-grade Eloise copper/gold project near Cloncurry in Queensland ...

    Gindalbie Gold
    THE year started with a crisis and ended in triumph at Gindalbie Gold ...

    Gympie Gold
    UNTIL the middle of 2002 the combination of coal and gold looked to be a winner for Gympie Gold ...

    Independence Gold
    NICKEL has been very good to Independence, which started life as a gold explorer, but quickly made the shift in commodity preference, if not yet in the name of the business ...

    Jackson Gold
    A CLASSIC grass roots gold explorer, Jackson Gold may well find itself in the right place at the right time if the cash holds out and it can get into production quickly or secure fresh investor support ...

    Jubilee Mines
    EASILY the biggest winner from Australia's 2003 nickel boom, Jubilee Mines is set for at least another three excellent years ...

    Sally Malay Mining
    GOOD things come to those who wait. In the case of Sally Malay and its namesake nickel project in the remote Kimberley region of WA, it has been a wait of more than 20 years from discovery to a set of conditions which elevate a project into a commercially viable mine.

    Siberia Mining
    POINTS for perseverance, that's a concession even the darkest critics of Andrew Forrest willingly concede ...

    Sipa Resources
    ONE of the few gold miners to make a profit from working in the iron ore rich Pilbara region, Sipa is now stepping out into the nickel game, while not forgetting where the cash comes from ...

    Tectonic Resources
    MANAGEMENT and shareholders of Tectonic have every reason to feel a bit aggrieved that their company has been treated as an almost forgotten player in the modern Australian nickel boom ...

    RE-OPENING its namesake mine near the WA wheatbelt town of Westonia is proving to be a bit harder than Westonia Mines envisaged when it floated in August 2002.
