New individual registrations and renewals will be temporarily suspended January 1, 2020 while we build a new web site. KRO will continue to operate in its current form during the transition with the difference that selected Trackers will become unrestricted to non-members after a short period.

The USD $1,000 annual multi-user Corporate Membership will continue to be available in 2020. Check out Membership Details.

Improving Canada's Junior Markets is an ongoing series sponsored by HoweStreet.com that looks at the solutions to the problems plaguing the Junior Capital Markets in Canada. The audio episode "Is the Uptick Rule Needed?" features an interview by Jim Goddard in which John Kaiser answers questions about the consequences the abolition of he "uptick rule" has for the junior resource sector and what could be done to offset them. It is available via Podcast or YouTube. It runs 54:32 minutes, but the different questions are broken out below along with any comments or graphics John Kaiser has provided.

0:00:45 - Short selling is the practice of borrowing stock you do not own and selling it into the market with the intention of buying it back at a cheaper price. One of the restrictions on short-selling was the up-tick rule. What is the uptick rule and what is its history?
0:04:36 - Why was the uptick rule for short selling eliminated?
0:08:26 - Do multiple trading platforms make it difficult to maintain orderly markets?
0:11:17 - Could it be physically possible to reinstate the uptick rule?
0:14:00 - Elon Musk recently tweeted "Short selling should be illegal". Your thoughts......
0:18:07 - What's the difference between regular shorting and predatory shorting?
0:22:19 - Since Canadian junior resource listings do not have corresponding options markets and generally are not components of structured products such as ETFs or index funds traders are trying to emulate, could the risk of predatory shorting in day trading accounts be reduced by forcing stock to be borrowed before submitting a short sale?
0:24:57 - Are Day Traders, in the eyes of the taxman, operating a business, where tax would be assessed on 100% of any profits?
0:26:51 - What else could be done to make predatory shorting of a junior a much riskier adventure for day traders?
0:33:32 - Why is it so difficult to quantify the size of the prize?
0:36:48 - Would not your Share Collective be deadly to resource juniors?
0:38:30 - What is the accredited investor concept?
0:46:12 - How would a junior handle hundreds of retail investors wanting to spend $5,000 on a unit private placement so that their money helps the company create wealth rather than just providing liquidity to existing shareholders?
0:48:49 - Would it make sense for the Canadian regulator to create a universal registration system for investors through which they can subscribe on a first come first serve basis in private placements offered by a company?

Navigating a Private Placement Document - why does it have to be so complicated?

0:50:35 - How sorry do you feel for cannabis juniors that there is no uptick rule to protect them from predatory short-selling now the bubble is over?

Highway 50 Gold Corp (HWY-V)





Monroe Canada - British Columbia 2-Target Drilling Zn Pb Ag Dec 4, 2019 - 0:00:01
Highway 50 Gold Corp has been featured on DW since early 2017 based on the potential of the 50% optioned Monroe project in southeastern British Columbia to deliver a Sedex type zinc-lead-silver discovery comparable to the 150 million tonne Sullivan deposit about 35 km to the north. The geological drivers behind the Monroe story are brothers John and Gordon Leask for whom this is their second crack at trying to find Sullivan 2 in this area. They are both the underlying owner of the Monroe property and the biggest shareholders of Highway 50. The property has over 50 holes into it, but the last dozen since Highway 50 started in 2017 have been deeper and have vectored in on a target area beneath 700 m which the Leasks estimate has a footprint about half the size of Sullivan. A deposit half the size of Sullivan with similar grades would be a world class discovery worth $1 billion plus. The target's location under Monroe Lake and the bounding faults of the target's sub-basin present technical challenges for angled holes to reach the target. While programs in 2017 and early 2018 beefed up the target, the program in late 2018 failed to reach this "make or break" target. A new round of drilling started in September 2019 missed the target with a successful hole while the second hole was lost well short of the target. Highway 50 will be short $900,000 of the $2.9 million expenditure deadline in May 2020 so there is a risk of default unless the Leasks grant an extension to Highway 50. The Golden Brew project in Nevada was introduced to DW in 2019 when after many permitting delays Regulus was able to test a fairly deep gravel covered horst block to the west of minor gold mineralization in the range front. This play is near the former Carlin-type Quito Mine and is at the southwestern limit of the 42-25 million year Carlin deposition window. Drill results in August 2019 were disappointing and at the end of October 2019 Regulus dropped the option. The Leasks remain convinced that this is the best area for a major Carlin type discovery outside the trends already controlled by the Nevada Gold JV (Barrick-Newmont). Given that Highway 50 will have negative working capital approaching $1 million by 2019 year end, much of it loaned by the Leask brothers who will retain 100% of Monroe unless the deal is modified, Highway 50 for now no longer qualifies as a Discovery Watch junior.
