Last week we asked our readers what they see as the best time to invest in a junior company. I wish we could say we had 240 responses instead of 24, but the trend is clear. For those risk-takers among CMJ readers, 46% would invest during the earliest stages of exploration, 29% at the advanced exploration stage, and 17% when development begins. As well, there were 8% who prefer to keep their cash under their mattresses.
