Top 15 Stock Price Banners On Mining Websites
Having your stock information prominently displayed on your website is essential to keeping your investors informed.
I’ve gone through the top 500+ mining companies that have websites and pulled out the best 15 examples with a stock price banner on the site.
These websites are in no particular order. Click on any of the images to enlarge them.
Western Uranium & Vanadium
I like this ticker because it’s easy to read, and it separates its CSE and OTC listing with a different colour. I also appreciated the note in the top right corner that the stock price is 15 minutes delayed. Hence, investors know not to rely on it for buy and sell decisions.
Full disclose, we, Neumarkets, built this website! We decided to list the Canadian and Frankfurt Stock Exchange information for the predominantly North American and European shareholders. The price of zinc is featured because it indicates Pasinexs main commodity, while also providing information that shareholders want.
Unigold’s ticker is on the list because of its pure simplicity. It focuses only on its current stock price in a clean and elegant format.
Teranga Gold Corporation
Teranga’s ticker made this list because of its transparent overlay and positioning. I also liked the additional visual aid of the price increase (green) versus decrease (red). As they’re a gold mining company, the added information on the gold price is a nice touch.
Teck went against the norm compared to the other companies in the public mining space and put their stock information at the bottom of the page. Working with public mining companies, I can sympathize with this decision as it’s easy to focus on the stock price. Making the right decision should come first, and the stock price will follow.
South32 displays the information in the top right corner very compactly, without adding any extra space to the site. The dark grey background of the stock price banner falls inline with their branding making their stock price information easy to read.
SolGold decided to go with a very CNN display of information that is continuously scrolling across the top of their site. For any public company with multiple commodities and exchanges, a scrolling banner is a great solution to include much information in 45 pixels worth of screen height.
QMX Gold leveraged a simple stock price banner right at the top of their page. It falls in line with branding guidelines and also utilizes the space for easy access to their social media accounts. Make sure you have a strong social media game if you’re going to display them so prominently.

Gatling’s ticker is another example of a well-branded, easy-to-read, stock price banner. Like Pasinex and others, they also opted to display the price of their main commodity. With the dark background, they were able to make the numbers pop with their gold branding.
Canarc Resource Corp.
Cararc’s stock banner is another example of a simple way of highlighting the commodities of their projects as well as their listings. The simplicity doesn’t pull away from the main image, which is nice.
This stock price banner uses gold nicely to highlight the commodities and indexes. And just like Teck, it uses red and green so investors can quickly figure out how they are doing on any given day. As an aside, I saw Ivan Bebek present at Mines & Money Americas last May in Toronto for the 3-minute Mining Pitch Battle – he deserved the victory.
They do a fantastic job of overlaying their stock information on top of their fullwidth homepage banner. It’s the same style overlay that Teranga has; the difference is that Ascendant spaces their information evenly across the width of the site.
I wanted to give Ascendant a shout-out to their PDAC booth. In my opinion, they have the most attractive backdrop of all the mining companies in the Investors Exchange.
Their stock price banner is very subtle, which is why I like it. It’s centred like the rest of their text on their homepage banner. Additionally, I’m a big fan of transparency (in the legal/ethics sense) and appreciate they note that their pricing is 20 minutes delayed. Not everything has to be in real-time!
Alexco nicely displays its stock price inside a boxy design. Separating their main commodity makes the information easier to distill and quickly lets any potential investor know what type of mining company they are.
In their stock price banner, they utilize their two primary branded colours well. To the right of the stock price, they highlight vital information to their stakeholders immediately upon landing on site.
As you can see, there are many ways to include your stock price banner on your website. The above examples show the variety and customization available to add these to your site.
Neumarkets is happy to discuss any customization questions you have on updating your website to include a stock price banner.
