The Oreninc Index fell to a four-week low for the week ending September 11, 2014. Total dollars fell to $58.3m, a four-week low. Two brokered deals were announced for $5.5m, a four-week low; no bought deals were announced for the second time in six weeks.
Deals for the week were stronger, with Agnico-Eagle Mines (TSX: AEM) agreeing to buy Cayden Resources (TSX-V: CYD) for $205m. Taseko Mines (TSX: TKO) agreed to buy Curis Resources (TSX: CUV) in an all-stock deal valued at $80m. Both deals are still subject to shareholder approval.
Junior financing activity is down, but it appears that majors are at least out and trying to make things happen. While too early to tell if this is just a summer hang-over or a real issue, it is not a good sign that a high number of deals with a low number of overall dollars were announced. Juniors may be out trying to raise money, but it seems they just aren’t able to find investment appetite.
