While this can mean excess volatility on the world markets, a silver lining (pun intended) is that mining companies are growing in market favor. Taranis Resources Inc. (OTCBB: TNREF) (TSE: TRO.V), a mining and mineral exploration company based in Colorado and Vancouver, BC, is well positioned for growth in the current volatile markets, largely due to its Thor Deposit, an advanced-stage gold-silver-lead-zinc-copper mineral deposit that has near-surface mineralization that can be extracted with a low cost, open pit mine. Recent discoveries in The Thor Deposit, which is 100% owned by Taranis (OTCBB: TNREF) (TSE: TRO.V), indicate that the area could be prime for development into a significantly bigger mine.
