Sprott Global Resource Investments

Investment University

Many clients are, quite rightly, keen to learn more about the sector that they are investing in, rather than simply taking a Sprott Global broker's word on a stock or property. To assist these clients we offer a series of self-guided educational courses free of charge. These are generally modular and new modules will be added regularly. So please return to this page from time to time to see what is new.

Endeavour Silver has compiled an excellent video on diamond drilling - how holes are sited, how the drill machine works and how the core that the drill provides is prepared for assay.  The drilling phase of exploration is when all the geological theories really get tested for accuracy ansd it is a part of the exploration process that investors in natural resources should have a basic understanding of.  Click here to view this video.
