Selling NexGen, Current Holdings and Learning from Mining Scams with Fund Manager Warren Irwin

Mining Stock Education · Selling NexGen, Current Holdings and Learning from Mining Scams with Fund Manager Warren Irwin

Seasoned resource fund manager Warren Irwin returns to MSE to talk mining scams: “There really is no penalties for scamming people in Canada in the mining sector. I cannot think of a single person that has done any jailtime. They may get fines or slap on the wrist or not being allowed to be a director or whatever. If you are into organized crime, get into the mining business because there is no penalties and there is lots of money to be made.”

Warren also discusses his current mining stock holdings and explains why he sold NexGen Energy: “I know way more than I could every say.”
