An Update on the Future of Mining: Urban Mining
Contributed Opinion

Share on Stocktwits


Technical analyst Clive Maund reviews the charts of two urban miners that he views as strong buys.

We took profits or partial profits in related stocks Enviroleach Technologies Inc. (ETI:CSE) and Mineworx Technologies Ltd. (MWX:TSX.V; MWXRF:OTCQB) about three weeks ago, in the full knowledge that theirs is a great story, because they were both heavily overbought, and we figured we could buy them back cheaper later, especially if the broad market got slammed—and both developments have come to pass. They have both reacted back sufficiently to justify our actions, have both unwound their respective overbought conditions, and both look like a strong buy again here. The extraordinary Enviroleach and Mineworx story may be read in my piece entitled THE FUTURE OF MINING: URBAN MINING, which was posted back in November.

The latest news on Enviroleach sounds very positive indeed; Enviroleach has submitted for "Innovation of the Year" at the Mining Disruption Conference contest, where the prize is a million dollars, and the company feels that it is a very strong contender. The contest takes place in the 1st week of March. What is probably of more importance is that Jabil is nearing completion of the thorough testing of the E-waste mobile plant in Tennessee. Lastly and even more importantly from the standpoint of investors is that the mood at Enviroleach is that Jabil will take them out sooner, rather than later.

Turning to quickly review the latest charts, we see firstly that Enviroleach looks like it is at a very good entry point here as a corrective bull Flag appears to be completing within a major uptrend channel. It is truly remarkable that it has not reacted more given what has just happened to broad market—and a sign of strength. Sudden low volume yesterday may be a sign that it is now ready to advance again.

It's a similar story with the Mineworx chart, except that we could have grabbed it a bit cheaper a few days ago. It looks like a bull flag is completing here too, with the lower volume of recent days a sign that it is probably ready to break out upside from the Flag and take off higher. It is thought unlikely that the shell-shocked broad market will drop much more short-term, and if it rallies it will create a window for both these stocks to advance.

Both Enviroleach and Mineworx are regarded as strong buys again here for a new upleg.
