You do not need to be a geologist or have a Ph.D. in geology to understand and invest in resource / mining companies. We believe your probability of success in this sector can be significantly improved by including the following five factors in your investing process.

1.Target companies that have exposure to commodities that you believe will do well and never listen to your neighbour and blindly invest in flavor-of-the-day commodities.

2.Avoid politically unstable jurisdictions, especially because investing in juniors is already a high-risk proposition, so why take additional geographical risks. Also, there are a plethora of highly attractive opportunities in safe jurisdictions.
