The TSXV is a popular stock exchange where investors regularly look for new and interesting stocks to add to their portfolios. This week, there were several stocks that made headlines and earned attention from traders. Goldbank Mining (TSXV: GBK) was at the top of the list, registering a massive 77% gain over the week. 20.9 million shares of the company changed hands, compared to the average of 0.7 million shares traded in the last 20 days. The sudden increase was in part driven by the market debut of the company’s maiden project, the Bend Property located in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle. Goldbank Mining has made big moves since its establishment, producing up to 5,000 meters of diamond core drilling and over 1.1 million meters of surface exploration. Continuing on, Northern Vertex Mining Corp. (TSXV:NEE) came close in second, with the company’s stock gaining approximately 62% over the week. Northern Vertex’s royalties on its Moss Mine in the US provided a big boost to the company’s staggering performance. IMPACT Silver (TSXV:IPT) was the third-best performer, gaining a notable 51% in the week. IMPACT’s increase could be tied to their reassuring statement that the company’s Guanajuato Mining Complex is unaffected by the coronavirus pandemic and is in full operation. The fourth spot was captured by Fosterville South Exploration Ltd. (TSXV:FSX), which rose 30%. The company recently published the results of its Phase 2 drill program at Fosterville West and Tracy Creek projects in Australia. Both the projects showed a strong presence of high-grade gold ores, spiked with an abundance of low to moderate-grade gold deposits. Rounding off the list is Trillium Gold Mines (TSXV:TGM), which rose an impressive 28% this week. The company recently released assay results from the field exploration they have been carrying out towards the Resolution Gold project in Ontario. Results revealed a mineralized zone containing gold of about 235 meters. All in all, the performance of these top five TSXV stocks highlights an increasingly positive outlook of the resource sector. It is likely that these stocks will continue to be in the spotlight over the coming weeks given the current gold prices and the favourable exploration done by the companies.
