UPDATED List of Emerging Junior Gold Producers

Most junior gold miners are explorers engaging in discovery of gold mineralization and are not planning for production in the near term. Only a handful of junior gold miners are near production or emerging producers. These emerging junior gold producers are the companies I follow and cover on the Gold Stock Strategist.

My initial list of emerging junior gold producers was published on March 22, 2008 and included 31 companies. A more recent post on June 9 had a list of 41 companies. Since then I have had several comments requesting additional companies be added. The companies requested to be added are:

1) Apollo Gold

2) ATW Venture Corp.

3) New Gold (merging with Peak Gold and Metallica Resources)

4) New Pacific

5) Wesdome Gold

Apollo Gold and ATW Venture Corp. are two companies I have included in past posts and simply overlooked them even though I was aware that they were both emerging junior gold producers. These two will be added to the list.

The new New Gold (TSX:NGD; AMEX:NGD)is really a mid-tier producer even though it is ramping up production fast. In addition, Peak Gold has been producing gold for about two years, so it isn't really an emerging producer. I like this company and follow it, but it just doesn't fit the criteria for coverage on this web site.

New Pacific Metals Corp. (TSX:NUX; OTC:NUXFF)is a polymetallic explorer working in China that could be considered a producer in three or more years. However, they do not plan to build a mill, but rather sell their ore to be procssed and milled by another company. Again, I like and follow this company, but it doesn't fit into the

Wesdome Gold (TSX:WDO; OTC:WDOFF) owns a lot of properties in Canada with low MI&I reserves, less than 100,000 ounces gold per property, and has been producing for several years, though they are beginning to ramp up production into 2009. Interestingly, their production is projected to decline beginning in 2010. This is another company that just doesn't fit into the profile of an emerging junior gold producer.

Below are 43 emerging junior gold producer companies I have identified.

1. Alexis Minerals Corp. (TSX:AMC; OTC:AMSMF)
2. Anatolia Minerals Development Ltd. (OTC:ALIAF)
3. Apollo Gold Corp. (TSX:ATG: AMEX:AGT)
4. Atna Resources Ltd. (TSX:ATN; OTC:ATNAF)
5. ATW Venture Corp. (TSX:ATW: OTC:ATWVF)
6. Aurelian Resources (TSX:ARU, OTC:AUREF)
7. Aurizon (TSX:ARZ; AMEX:AZK)
8. Axmin Inc. (TSX:AXM; OTC:AXMIF)
9. CGA Mining Ltd. (TSX:CGA; OTC:CGAFF)
10.Crystallex International Corp.(TSX:KRY; AMEX:KRY)
11.Dynasty Metals & Mining Inc. (TSX:DMM; OTC:DMMIF)
12.European Goldfields Ltd.(TSX:EGU)
13.European Minerals, Inc.(TSX:EPM; OTC:EPMCF)

28.Metanor Res. Inc. (TSX:MTO; OTC:MEAOF)
29.Minco Gold (TSX:MMM: AMEX:MGH)
30.Minefinders Corp. Ltd. (TSX:MFL; AMEX:MFN)
31.Moto Goldmines Ltd. (TSX:MGL; OTC:MTOGF)

33.New Guinea Gold (TSX: NGG: OTC:NGUGF)
34.NovaGold Resources Inc. (TSX:NG; AMEX:NG)
35.Orezone Resources Inc. (TSX:OZN; AMEX:OZN)
36.Pacific Rim Mining Corp. (TSX:PMU; AMEX:PMU)

41.Tara Gold (OTC:TRGD)
42.Timmins Gold Corp. (TSX:TMM; OTC:TMGOF)
43.Western Goldfields (TSX:WGI; AMEX:WGW)

I appreciate the help given by readers to identify any emerging junior gold miners planning to enter the production phase in 2008 or 2009.

Thank you.
