The Canadian junior mining stocks on our list are trading at low Price/Cash Flow multiples on a relative basis
SmallCapPower | August 4, 2017: Only 11 junior mining companies trading on Canadian stock exchanges have generated positive operating cash flow over the past 12 months. Investing in these cash-flow generating assets is much safer than speculating on junior gold companies that have not yet moved into production. When analyzing these cash-flow positive companies, it is important not to pay too much for an ownership stake. Today we have identified four Canadian junior mining stocks trading below the industry median 8x price/LTM operating cash-flow multiple.
