AXcess News: Tracking Gold and Silver Stocks

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - January 22, 2008) - With the wild swing in precious metals futures for gold and silver recently it's difficult for investors to accurately track gold and silver stocks, while trying to evaluate the properties they hold has become a time-consuming matter.

Itronics Inc. (OTCBB: ITRO) subsidiary, Whitney & Whitney, Inc., has developed a handy way for gold and silver bugs to access information through, a Web site it launched last year which deploys a unique point system on gold and silver mining companies that takes into consideration the mining property reports those companies file.

While many investors use sophisticated charting programs to track gold and silver stocks as a way to identify buy and sell opportunities, those programs display investor interest and may incorporate some degree of results, such as price to earnings ratios. But trying to decipher that information to find undervalued companies based on their properties and operating efficiencies takes good old elbow grease and a lot of reading. gives users access to information, which, if you wanted to use their time-saving ranking system, requires a paid subscription of $149.95, or a little less than the cost of 5 grams of gold at today's prices. But accessing information -- especially where a unique point system is used which was developed by Whitney & Whitney, Inc. geologists to track mining properties -- appears to have developed into an almost cult following of users of its Web site and due to growing demand, now has a respectable number of junior mining companies within its ranks.

Junior gold and silver stocks are often more volatile and finding information that you can use is difficult, but the geologists at Whitney & Whitney, Inc. built the database program used within to accurately gauge their customers performance and as more and more information began to filter its way through the Internet they decided to open their tools to the public in launching the Web site last year.
