Since it's often easier for smaller companies to skyrocket in value in a short time, higher market cap companies rarely make our list of the top-performing financings. But this week, St. James Gold Corp. (TSX-V: LORD) managed to make the cut.
The company announced an $849,980 financing back in March, issuing units at $1.44 each. Each unit also included a warrant, exercisable at $2.50 for two years.
Shares of the company began a steep climb just as the private placement closed, as the company announced it was looking for further acquisitions to add to its portfolio. The company optioned the Florin project in the Yukon from Florin Resources Inc. in early June, and announced that it had secured a contractor for a 13,000-metre drill program on the property more recently.
The company also recently filed an NI 41-101 report on Florin, pegging the property with an inferred mineral resource of 2.47 million ounces of gold grading 0.45 grams per tonne. Shares of St. James closed at $5.38 on Tuesday, up 274% since announcing the private placement in March.
