Is it time to take a fresh look at resources?

The oil and gas sector has been taking a hit for some time now. However, maybe now its time they strike bottom and start producing.

Amongst the resources, came across some mineral companies worth keeping on the radar.

One of which is moving its company forward in leaps and bounds with increased asset uptake, a greater business plan and a stock that's only just starting to mimic the great news

While the other, like the oil and gas sector, has been falling, and may be due to turn around and many analysts feel now may be its time

ANOORAQ RESOURCES (AMEX: ANO) engages in the acquisition and exploration of platinum group metals prospects in the Republic of South Africa.

Anooraq has been teetering on a plane for the past weeks, and unlike its mining operations, made a move for higher ground today. Setting a new 52 week high on volume more than double the norm to support this move.

The company recently announced a transaction with Anglo Platinum to acquire 51% of the Lebowa Platinum Mine and increase its interest in three other mines to 51%, which will in turn make them the third largest platinum company based on mineral resources.

Compounding on this acquisition and increased interest, the company made a decision to bring on a new Managing Director, to bolster its technical team in South Africa and transform their exploration/development company into a substantial operating company. Visit to keep updated.

Contrarian investors may be more inclined to keep a close watch on KODIAK OIL & GAS CORP (AMEX: KOG).

Unlike Anooraq, Kodiak has been headed for lower ground for some time now, setting new 52-week lows.

It's been a couple rough quarters for Kodiak, however the last quarter was more promising with profits nearing the black.

Last month BMO financial selected Kodiak to outperform its competitors and just recently, around this same level, KOG saw an influx of buying that bounced the stock back up considerably.

Volume since, has remained stronger as investors are keeping a closer eye going into the winter months and are considering how much lower these shares can fall before it becomes a true value play. Visit to not only keep updated on these companies, but as a registration bonus, receive two free Special Reports.

Another company paralleling Kodiak is Northgate Minerals (TSX: NGX). Not only has the company consistently lost ground in the past weeks, but it also sits just above its 52-week low, yet is considered by many as a pick worthy of consideration at this time.

Northgate engages in the mining and exploring of gold and copper properties in North and South America. As of December 31, 2006, the Kemess North deposit, contained proven and probable reserve of 4.1 million ounces of gold, while their Young-Davidson property had a base of 2.1 million ounces of gold. Northgate has 100% interest in both properties.

The resource sector as recently had an influx of added interest, despite the volatility of the markets. We encourage you to visit to receive our Special Report #1 with information on how to combat the markets and gain information on new ideas bound to strike your interest.
