The days of “easy money” for junior miners may be over, according to Rick Rule, president of Sprott U.S., who sees record levels of financing for even low-quality junior mining projects as a sign of caution.
“The space itself, I think is substantially overbought. The truth is, scores of companies have been able to do very, very large financings,” Rule told Kitco News.
