The following is a list of stock picks from a group of mining and metals sector analyst who are scheduled to gather at the inaugural Metals Investment Forum in Vancouver, May 30, 2015.

The four stock pickers are Eric Coffin of HRA Advisories, John Kaiser of Kaiser Research Online, Gwen Preston of Resource Maven, and Brien Lundin of Gold Newsletter.

Meanwhile, here is a preview of some of their top picks...

From Gwen Preston, The Resource Maven:

Kaminak Gold Corp’s (TSX: V.KAM, Stock Forum) Coffee project in the Yukon offers everything an asset needs to become a mine.

It has 2.5 million oz. of oxide gold resource. The gold sits in coherent, near-surface bodies that would be easy to open-pit mine. Metallurgy is easy; basic heap leaching should recover 94% of the gold. It is in an area of gentle topography, where roads are inexpensive to build and mine engineering is not complicated. The nearby Yukon River means fuel and equipment can be barged to site. Kaminak has good relations with the local First Nations and all land claims are settled.

The resource continues to grow.

Two significant and savvy investors — Ross Beaty and Lukas Lundin — recently bought large positions in the company. Kaminak is pushing to complete a feasibility study by early next year and has the cash to do so…but the company better hurry, because this is a stock that has “Takeout Target” written all over it. Majors with depleted project pipelines are looking for near-development assets offering economic ounces in supportive jurisdictions and requiring straightforward engineering — and Coffee has all of that in spades.

Pilot Gold Inc. (TSX: T.PLG, Stock Forum) has a top-notch technical team, three large and promising assets, money in the bank, and a focus on increasing value for shareholders.

In Nevada, the company is proving its geologic theory right at Kinsley Mountain by finding high-grade gold in geologic units previously thought barren. In Turkey, Pilot has two projects joint-ventured with Teck Resources: Halilaga is a near-development asset with good economics and TV Tower is an exploration package where Pilot has discovered three large porphyries and several other mineralized zones. Initial resource estimates for Kinsley Mountain and TV Tower later this year will show the market how much value Pilot has created during the bear years.

And when the resource markets get back into gear, majors will start scrambling to acquire big projects that are sensible to build and Pilot Gold will be in many sights.

From Eric Coffin, Hard Rock Advisory

Lion One Metals Ltd. (TSX: V.LIO, Stock Forum) has received all permits required for production at its high-grade Tuvatu gold project in Fiji.

Tuvatu hosts a gold resource of 300,000 Indicated ounces at 8.5 g/t and 468,000 Inferred ounces at 9.7 g/t. The resource is open in multiple directions and there are several nearby prospects with similar grades and widths that still require drilling. Management has direct experience managing a number of mine start-ups and building value in companies that were subject to billion-dollar-plus buyouts.

Lion One is planning a low capital cost mining operation at Tuvatu. Hear from management and find out how this tightly held company could quickly become a low cash cost gold producer.

GoldQuest MiningCorp. (TSX: V.GQC, Stock Forum) just released a very impressive PEA on its Romero gold/copper resource in the Dominican Republic.

Management has previously developed and built a successful mine in the DR and knows how to push Romero through to production. In addition to Romero, GoldQuest controls a large land position in the Tireo Gold Belt that is the company’s discovery.

Work will continue on outside prospects as Romero is moved forward, giving the company

discovery potential in addition to the potential to gain as Romero is advanced. Management will share its plans with you at the Metals Investor Forum.

Nevsun Resources Ltd. (TSX: T.NSU, Stock Forum) has one of the world’s most successful base metal mines at Bisha and has been a prodigious cash generator because of it.

The company will become a significant zinc producer next year. Ongoing exploration at the nearby Harena discovery has been reporting spectacular copper-zinc intercepts. There should be more news on that front and updates on the zinc circuit construction.

With over half a billion in working capital, almost all of it cash, Nevsun has high potential to be an acquirer in the space or the target of a takeover itself. Get the latest updates and news from management one on one at the Metals Investor Forum.

From John Kaiser, Kaiser Research Online

Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. (TSX: T.SBB, Stock Forum) is updating the feasibility study on its Back River project, which boasts a 7 million ounce+ gold resource, 5 million of that Measured and Indicated, at grades of 5 g/t or more.

Sixty percent of the resource is open pittable. It is one of only a handful of projects controlled by a junior capable of producing 200,000-300,000 ounces per year over a long mine life in a safe political jurisdiction. Sabina controls an entire mineral belt and there are numerous prospects and targets that remain to be tested.

With over $27 million in cash and a feasibility study in hand, Sabina has huge leverage to positive changes in gold prices or market sentiment. Management will discuss some of the important changes in their new feasibility study and the company’s plans going forward.

From Brien Lundin, Gold Newsletter

Balmoral Resources Ltd. (TSX: T.BAR, Stock Forum) was the best-performing Vancouver-based mining and exploration company in 2014, which is a testament to the company’s focus on creating value by discovering, acquiring, expanding or selling high-grade base and precious metal assets in the Abitibi region of Quebec and Ontario.

The Abitibi is a fantastic jurisdiction, offering infrastructure, expertise, mining history, and geologic opportunity. The area’s geologic potential is apparent in Balmoral’s two main projects: the high-grade Martiniere gold system and the brand new nickel-copper-platinum group elements district at Grasset. Two very different projects, each with major potential.

Fission 3.0 Corp. (TSX: V.FUU, Stock Forum) was assembled by the same team that brought you Fission Uranium, one of the world’s most successful uranium explorers and discoverer of Patterson Lake South, the 100 million pound (and growing) uranium discovery in Saskatchewan’s Athabasca Basin.

Fission 3.0 holds 17 uranium exploration projects totalling over 500,000 acres in Saskatchewan, hand-picked by Fission’s world class team and being explored using the same unique mix of technologies and geologic smarts that led to the Patterson Lake discovery. Fission 3.0 has attracted some top flight partners to help it explore and intends to add more joint ventures to spread the exploration risk and minimize future dilution for Fission 3.0 shareholders. Several projects will be drilled during 2015.
