B2Gold, Barrick, Desert Gold Ventures - Gold rush in West Africa

Interest rates in the G20 countries are historically low. Those who have cash in their bank accounts receive low interest rates at best or even have to pay a penalty. This situation will not change in the foreseeable future. On the contrary, the central banks' measures to stop the Corona Pandemic are expected to increase inflation and reduce purchasing power. Gold and shares of companies that participate in the value chain of the precious metal are a classic hedge for wealth and offer protection against slow devaluation.

Fear of devaluation will increase

The current package of measures by central banks around the world is with around USD 9 trillion, is more than four times as large as the concerted activities during the financial crisis in 2008, which amounted to around USD 2 trillion. Following the financial crisis, the price of the troy ounce of gold rose from below USD 800.00 to over USD 1,900.00. It is therefore hardly surprising that Bank of America is predicting a potential gold price of USD 3,000.00 per troy ounce for 2021.

Producers start first

At the moment, various sectors are already in recovery mode and their stocks are rising, while the potential of gold company stocks is not yet in the public eye. Given that the gold price is expected to continue to rise and gold producers are already achieving high margins, it is only a matter of time before the run on gold stocks begins. Usually the shares of the well-known companies such as B2Gold, Barrick and Newmont rise first. However, the multiplication potential of these giants is limited due to their size.

Value driver is exploration

If you want to speculate that the investment will more than double or multiply, you should take a look at the exploration scene near major producers. West Africa is where the gold producers B2Gold and Barrick are located and in their neighbourhood are the exploration companies Desert Gold Ventures and Roscan Gold. The projects of these two explorers are mostly located in the west of Mali, the country with the fourth largest gold production on the continent. More than 2.1 million troy ounces of gold were produced in Mali in 2018.

Big, successful and unnoticed

While Roscan Gold's share price has risen from CAD 0.12 to more than CAD 0.45 since January 2020 and most recently had a market capitalization of more than CAD 75 million at CAD 0.38, Desert Gold Ventures' share price remains unchanged at CAD 0.145 and has a market capitalization of less than CAD 16 million. Desert Gold yesterday announced a drill program to expand on the discoveries made to date and possibly discover additional gold deposits.

Takeover candidate in case of success

Historically, the company has reported gold at 3.52 g/t Au and 6.28 g/t Au on its approximately 400 square kilometre properties. Desert Gold Ventures' project is reportedly the largest contiguous area in the region not yet in production. Therefore, it is expected that the awareness of Desert Gold will increase in the coming weeks and months.

Management is aiming for 1 to 6 million ounces of gold in the areas. Usually exploration companies with deposits of this size are taken over by experienced producers. As a guide for a takeover price, the price is around USD 100 per ounce in the ground. A perspective for Desert Gold shareholders that may be worthwhile.

Daimler, Theta Gold Mines, Barrick Gold: Long-term opportunities lurk here

  • Gold

Raw materials and certain primary products are in short supply. The automotive industry is a good example of this. Here, the post-Corona boom is not picking up speed because necessary semiconductors are not available. In some cases, companies from the automotive sector have already concluded their own contracts with chip manufacturers to lift the emergency. We show whether there are nevertheless winners in the auto industry and explain the developments for which the scarcity of chips and other preliminary products could have a signal effect.

Carnival, Triumph Gold, TUI - It is starting again!

  • Gold

Since the beginning of July, the cruise ships are now sailing again. AIDA already has 5 ships on the water again, and Carnival plans to bring a capacity of 75% back onto the water in the fall. These are the plans as of today. However, concerns about the pandemic development are also spreading because the travel industry is still very tense about the infection situation in the fall. A rampant spread of various mutations caused by summer tourism is expected for the winter. The good price-performance of various travel providers in the second quarter has also gone into reverse gear again. We take a closer look.

  • Gold

When the markets shake out, it can not hurt to have a little gold in the portfolio. Whether physically or in the form of shares is a matter of taste. If you are more speculative, you should look for young exploration companies. The big picture speaks in favor of rising prices for the precious metal in the medium term. We show you three stocks that can help you profit from a rising gold price. Who is winning the race?
