Benjamin discusses the future of public junior mining companies. Opining that this has been an awful summer for juniors (the third summer in a row that has been horrible), he poses the question of whether there is a rational risk/reward for juniors. While Benjamin may seem optimistic, investors are still weary. Benjamin thinks that, despite the pessimism, public juniors are here to stay though they may change to survive. Companies dying off and a different type of relationship existing between majors and juniors are examples of changes he can see happening. Even with these, however, Benjamin sees it as a more toned-down industry in place of the flamboyant highs of the market of the late aughts.
