6 Carlin Trend Gold Stocks to Watch in 2020

The junior gold stocks we’ve dug up are exploring for gold in Nevada’s prolific Carlin Gold Trend

SmallCapPower | January 17, 2020: The Carlin Trend is a geologic feature in northeastern Nevada where a tectonic crustal block called a terrane is moving into the North American Plate. The friction between the collision of the two plates produces hot springs along the structural zone. The hot springs bring dissolved minerals such as gold and silver to the surface, precipitating then out through the cracks in the plates. As a result, the Carlin Trend is one of the world’s richest gold mining districts (Source: Wikipedia). Today we have discovered six gold stocks exploring for gold and silver in the prolific Carlin Trend.
