The Spotlight Story...

Spotlight Mining is an agile, boutique media firm serving the junior mining industry. We produce stunning videos of exploration projects and mine sites, conduct insightful interviews with important figures in the industry, and manage social media and web content for a wide variety of clients. In addition, we will always keep you up to date with the latest news in junior mining through our website, social media channels and two weekly newsletters.

Spotlight was founded in 2018 when a group of geologists and videographers had the chance to visit Mawson Resources (now Mawson Gold) and the Geological Survey of Finland to work on projects for them. On this trip, the group realised that there was unmet demand in the junior mining industry for professional, engaging media content backed by geological expertise. Liam, Teejo, Sam and Chris founded Spotlight Mining with the single goal of communicating economic geology and technical mineral exploration data honestly and at a level accessible to all.

At Spotlight, we know that the mining industry is often misunderstood, and it's our goal to help people recognise the benefits it can bring. Equally important, though, is our mission to call out poor investment, environmental, social and governance practices in the industry that give the industry a bad name. We believe in the importance of mining, and we don't want to see communities reject it because of bad experiences. We have trained geologists on our team who can interpret technical data from companies for a broader audience, and we will always declare our bias in covering news from our clients and others.

Today, the Spotlight team spans the globe and works in several languages. Our writers retain journalistic freedom to publish their real opinions, and our founder Liam invests personally in the companies we represent. He refuses to promote or support any companies he would not invest in himself so that our readers can be sure we're acting in good faith.

To honour our roots, we have kept our original 'Spotlight Finland' logo design. We may be growing, but we won't forget where we came from and the friends who got us here. To all of you who've been part of the Spotlight adventure, our heartfelt thanks and support will always be yours.

Latest Updates...

With new rule changes being considered in British Columbia to discourage social media stock pumping and associated nonsense, we wanted to reassure you, we’re already operating within the proposed regulations.

We have always declared our bias and investment, we proudly promote our partnerships with companies in our communications and we operate everything transparently from Spotlight’s channels using either our Company branding or personal names and recognisable logos/photos.

Our media is referenceable and traceable, so we’re always on hand to back-it up or publish corrections, if our views are called into question. We also offer publishing space for companies to reply to our reviews and media, should we make claims they disagree with.

The new rule changes are designed to catch out a myriad of naughty scammers preying on new investor ignorance, but we remain committed to promoting educational, enjoyable, and fairly distributed content for the mining industry.

With this in mind, it’s a great time to remind you that Spotlight Mining have active media partnership contracts with, or have recently been part of paid media production work for several Canadian listed companies including:
* Goldplay Mining (AUC)
* Conquest resources (CQR)
* Mawson Gold (MAW)
* Mountain Boy Minerals (MTB)
* Kodiak Copper (KDK)
* Rupert Resources (RUP)
* Firefox Gold Corp. (FFOX)
* Riverside Resources (RRI)
* Mammoth Resources (MTH)
* Guanajuato Silver Co. (GSVR) - (Previously named Vangold Mining, VGLD)
* Solgold (SOLG)

I also wish to mention, as a publishing author on this mailing list, that I currently hold or plan to hold long-term investments in:
* Warrior gold (WAR)
* Goldplay Mining (AUC)
* Conquest resources (CQR)
* Mawson Gold (MAW)
* Mountain Boy Minerals (MTB)
* Mammoth Resources (MTH)
* Guanajuato Silver Co. (GSVR) - (Previously named Vangold Mining, VGLD)
* Capitan Mining (CAPT)

These investments and partnerships mean Spotlight Mining may show preferential sorting of how news and stories are covered from our website. For example, a Mountain Boy Minerals (TSXv:MTB) News release will appear at the top of our news articles, above other industry news stories; our videos produced for Mawson Gold will be promoted above those of companies who have not paid us… etc. But we will not ever edit or change the actual quality or intended reliability of our content. Our writers (except me, ironically!) all hold an MSc in Geology or a related science and our media producers are trained in exchange compliance and factual reporting.

As we’ve always tried to do things the honest way, we actively welcome the new proposed regulations and hope their enforcement allows new investors to access more factual research and content and makes them feel more welcome in the world of junior mining.
