Oreninc Index Falls for Third Straight Week

 

 

 

 

 

The markets continue to slump as the Oreninc Index fell for the fourth time in six weeks during the week ending April 25, 2013.  The five- and three-week moving averages both fell to their lowest levels since last August.  Total dollars announced was up from last week, but broker dollars announced fell significantly.  The markets are not rebounding, and banks continue to struggle finding investors for early-stage exploration.

  • Four brokered deals were announced; brokered dollars announced fell to $8.2 million, an eight-week low.
  • One bought deal was announced for $2 million.
  • Total dollars announced increased to $67 million, a two-week high.
  • Average deal size decreased to $2.5 million, a five-week low.

  • Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSX-V:KTN) announced a $4.75 million private placement with Agnico-Eagle (TSX:AEM). Each unit includes a 1/2 warrant that expires in 24 months.
