Collective Mining Ltd. (CNL:TSXV) was started by the same team that worked up Continental Gold to become the biggest gold mine in Colombia and ultimately sold it to Zijin Mining for $2 billion, so to put it mildly the credentials of this team are excellent.
It should therefore come as no surprise that during the sector rout of recent weeks Collective Mining has held up remarkably well as we can on its latest one-year chart below which shows that it is still in an uptrend.

After it came to market about a year ago it had an initial spurt but then it went into a steep downtrend that lasted until early October, after which it reversed into an uptrend which continues.
After breaking higher in January it has been trending more gradually higher in an ascending trading range. While the volume pattern has been bullish throughout, what is of most interest to us is the persistent heavy volume that drove the latest upleg early last month and the way volume has dropped right back to a low level as the price has reacted gently back in recent weeks.
These are the characteristics of a bull flag, so we can expect to see another upleg begin soon that should be at least of the magnitude of the last one, so there is a good chance that this upleg will succeed in breaking the price out to new highs, after which it is quite likely that, perhaps after some consolidation, the price will accelerate to the upside.
Collective Mining is therefore rated an immediate speculative buy.
