Gold has gotten tarnish recently but the junior gold stocks on our list are in the green
SmallCapPower | October 7, 2016: It hasn’t been a great month for gold investing. Barrick had a huge leak at a tailings pond in Argentina that resulted in the suspension of its operations, Goldcorp shut down a mine in Mexico, and, on top of that, the President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, Jeffrey Lacker, wants to raise rates. The gold price, meanwhile, dropped $40 in a single day. However, we found a few junior gold stocks that gained ground on the day of the drop as well as month to date.
