Good morning investors,

A quick look at some of last night’s more interesting insider filings:

First Mining Finance (FF-V) – CEO Keith Neumeyer banked some more shares of his gold-focused mineral bank, buying 47,000 shares yesterday at 32 cents a share. Neumeyer, who also runs First Majestic Silver, has been a voracious buyer of First Mining shares in the public market and now owns 9,484,754 shares – about 3.2% of outstanding shares.

Fission Uranium (FCU) – Ross McElroy, Fission’s president and COO, picked up another 50,000 shares of the company at 57 cents, a few cents off the 52-week low. McElroy, a geologist who has worked for majors including BHP and Cameco, owns 1,839,834 Fission shares.

NexGen Energy (NXE-V) – NexGen VP Exploration and Development Garrett Ainsworth acquired another 100,000 shares of the Athabasca Basin uranium explorer in the recent $21-million bought-deal financing, done at 64 cents. As project manager of Alpha Minerals, Ainsworth played a key role in the discovery of Patterson Lake South, which Fission consolidated when it bought out Alpha, its JV partner.
