FIRST MNG FIN CORP COM NPV (OTCMKTS:FFMGF) is a penny stock in the metals and materials space that really popped onto the collective radar screen back in April when it acquired a junior mining exploration company with six properties in the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Canada. This came right in the middle of 6-month period during which the junior gold mining ETF (GDXJ) more than tripled.
As always, it pays off big-time to expand operations significantly during a growth boom in your market space, especially if you don’t have to cripple your balance sheet in the process. FFMGF is a good example of that principle so far in 2016.

There’s no secret to this one: FFMGF is going to follow the action in the metals. We even saw this principle in action during the last week of June when the precious metals, the Japanese Yen, and long dated US T-Bond futures were all the rage following the UK’s surprising Brexit vote in late June. That was the economic fear trade. And it worked just fine for FFMGF.
However, over the larger time frame, this stock is loaded with assets that will do much better in an inflationary environment, rather than a deflationary shock (such as that implied by the worst-case fears associated with the Brexit vote).
As far as its more active projects, the Company just filed a technical report for the Company’s Pitt Gold Project showing a combined Indicated mineral resource of 600,000 tonnes grading 7.83 grams per tonne gold containing 151,000 ounces Au and an Inferred mineral resource of 476,000 tonnes grading 6.91 g/t Au containing 106,000 ounces Au.
A cut-off grade of 3.0 g/t Au was used to calculate the Indicated and Inferred resources for this report which was dated June 30, 2016, with an effective date of January 31, 2011 and was prepared by Micon International Limited. The Technical Report has been voluntarily filed in connection with First Mining’s acquisition of the Pitt Gold Property from Brionor Resources Inc. with no changes to the resources.
Wall Street insiders are taking note of recent progress. At this time, carrying a capital value in the market of $256M, FFMGF has a formidable stash ($1.19M) of cash on the books, in a pool of total assets greater than $86M, which is balanced by an appreciable load ($2.0M) of total accumulated debt. This is a reasonably balanced picture, and debt is not growing. In the end, with any company like FFMGF, there are minor issues they can muck up. But, over any given time frame, the world is either going to pay off a bet on pulling bits of metal out of the ground, or not. This week’s Federal Reserve meeting and announcement will have something to say about that. To get the full story on FFMGF subscribe below to Oracle Dispatch right now.
