The upside to the downturn: extraordinary value' for selective investors

There's no doubt that the past few years have been tough on junior miners and those who invest in them. So tough in fact that the World Resource Conference put together each June in Vancouver by Cambridge House has been rebranded as the Canadian Investor Conference, with small-cap tech and "diversified" companies - including those juniors that have recently migrated to the burgeoning medical marijuana sector - invited in to shore up the exhibitors' list and bring in more investors. But while it's easy to dwell on the hardships exploration companies and those who invest in them have had to endure for the past three years, there is an upside to the junior mining industry's current malaise.

Newsletter writer and mining analyst John Kaiser sounds a little dejected as he describes the utterly bleak state of the mining industry today."The phones are completely dead, nobody cares," says the editor of Kaiser Research Online. "Companies can't raise money, it's like a complete dying sector."Kaiser made a now-famous prediction last year that around 500 juniors were bound for "extinction" because of an inability to raise capital, low share prices and negative sentiment on commodities.As of mid-May, that number has grown: Of the roughly 1,800 publicly listed TSX and TSXV companies involved in mining or exploration and listed in the KRO database, 694 had less than $200,000 in working capital - basically the amount needed annually to maintain a listing.Kaiser adds that about 70% of all...
