As Gold is The classic Hedge Against General Fears about Economic Stability, First Energy Metals Ltd. (ASKDF) Shares Stand to Deliver Hefty Returns Through 2020 and Beyond


Reports from Citi earlier this year suggested that the firm believes higher gold prices are in store for investors. Market “jitters” could bring investors to put more money into safe-haven assets. Obviously, gold would be a potential way for investors to hedge risks to the downside. As all investors know, gold is the classic hedge against equity volatility and general fears about economic stability.

Gold stocks has already started showing great momentum and will likely continue this week as well. Due to this impressive rally in the gold, it could be worthwhile for investors to have a look at First Energy Metals Ltd. (ASKDF)

First Energy Metals Limited (OTC: ASKDF) is a junior resource company engaged in the exploration and development of energy and precious metals such as lithium, cobalt, gold and silver within its property portfolio in North America. The Company’s goal is to acquire prospective mineral properties and develop them. The Company currently holds an option to acquire 100% interest in Phyllis Nickle-Copper-Cobalt property in Ontario. The Company has recently acquired Scramble Mine Gold Property in Ontario, and two gold exploration properties (Kokanee Creek and Independence Gold properties) located in the Province of British Columbia, Canada. First Energy Metals Limited (formerly “Agave Silver “) was incorporated on October 12, 1966 in the Province of British Columbia.

The company recently announced that it has entered into a purchase agreement with Geomap Exploration Inc. (“the Seller”), a private Corporation registered in British Columbia, Canada, to acquire a silver  gold exploration property located in the Province of British Columbia, Canada. Pursuant to a property purchase  agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) between the Seller and the Company, dated August 10, 2020, First Energy will acquire a 100% interest in the Bald Eagle Silver Property (“the Property”) consisting of three mining claims covering approximately 1,013.58 hectares area in Alberni Mining Division, British Columbia, Canada by way of issuing 550,000 common shares of First Energy, Geomap Exploration will retail a 2% NSR of which First Energy may purchase half (1%) of the NSR.

Property Details:

  • Bald Eagle Property is located 30 km to the northeast of Ucluelet and approximately 57km by road west of Port Alberni in the west coast of Vancouver Islands, on NTS map 092F013. The Port Alberni-Tofino paved highway runs 800m east of the property. It has an ideal location for shipping potential mineral concentrates by ocean freight to any destination in the world.
  • Geologically, the area is underlain by Karmutsen Formation volcanics of the Upper Triassic Vancouver Group, which have been intruded by the Early to Middle Jurassic Island intrusions consisting of granodiorite to quartz diorite. The quartz veins are a few centimetres to two meters in width with patches of pyrite, pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite. Tertiary silver- and gold-bearing quartz-sulphide veins are found primarily along faults within the area.
  • There are four mineral occurrences on the Property as documented in MTO database of BC Ministry of Mines records as Minfiles.
  • Kristen Occurrence: (1987-89) Golden Spinnaker Minerals optioned the property and completed programs of trenching, VLF-EM surveys and diamond drilling. In 1988 bulk sampling and fourteen diamond drillholes, totalling 819 metres, was completed on the Elite 1 vein and nearby Rachel vein. In 1991, Kancana Ventures optioned the property. From 1993 to 1995, the property was returned to and later prospected by K. Gourley. In 1993, chip sampling of the Kristen I vein assayed values up to 4.4 grams per tonne gold and 126.5 grams per tonne silver. In 1995, sampling of the vein assayed up to 9.8 grams per tonne gold and 31.5 grams per tonne silver (Assessment Report 25493). At Elite 1 Vein area disseminated pyrite occurs in bleached and silicified rock with irregular quartz lenses and pods; rock samples from here assay up to 0.508 oz/ton gold across 110 cm (Assessment Report 18218).
  • Bald Eagle Occurrence: Area was part of the same work program in 1987-89 by Golden Spinnaker Minerals. Mineralization is in 0.05 to 0.60 metre-wide quartz and/or calcite veins occurring in a quartz diorite rock and containing lenses of pyrite and pyrrhotite. In 1995 a 0.10 metre chip sample from this occurrence assayed 8.3 grams per tonne gold and 35.2 grams per tonne silver.
  • Frog Creek Occurrence: Area was part of the above-mentioned work program in 1987-89. In 1995, a 0.20 metre chip sample returned values of 2.6 grams per tonne gold and 2.7 grams per tonne silver (JK-167; Assessment Report 25493).
  • The Falcon occurrence: is located on the northern slopes of Hidden Peak at approximately 950 metres. Locally, a mineralized zone, striking 300 degrees and dipping 40 degrees southwest within altered volcanics, contains disseminated pyrite, chalcopyrite and minor galena and native copper. In 1984, Torhsen Energy Corp. completed a program of rock sampling and geological mapping on the area as the Falcon claim. A 30 centimetre channel sample of the zone assayed 0.37 per cent copper, 0.156 per cent zinc and 3.1 grams per tonne silver (Assessment Report 12769).

Cautionary Statement: Investors are cautioned that the above information has been taken from publicly available sources mainly based on the BC Government’s database at following websites: The Company has not verified the information and the information is not necessarily indicative of the mineralization on the property. The Company is in the process of developing an exploration work plan on the Property by compiling geological and historical exploration work. The work plan will initially be focused on confirming historical sampling carried out on the Property.

The company is on a high growth trajectory, and that makes First Energy Metals Limited (OTC: ASKDF) stock very attractive. ASKDF is trading at a discount compared to other players. And several upcoming catalysts could catapult shares higher. That means, in the short-term, First Energy Metals Limited (OTC: ASKDF) have nowhere to go but up.
