Flight to quality underway

AIM mining IPO fund-raising

Speculative resource companies saturated markets during first phase of “super-cycle”

Capital markets have run dry for junior miners

Cash strapped juniors struggling to raise finance – failures are inevitable

Gold producers will provide greatest leverage to a rising gold price
