B2Gold, Desert Gold, Osino Resources - Gold is becoming scarce

  • Gold

The price of a troy ounce of gold has been quoted at over USD 2,000.00 for some time now and has thus reached historic territory. Given that fears of a decline in the value of fiat money are encouraging people to flee to the world's oldest currency, this situation is expected to continue as long as central banks and politicians implement measures to mitigate the consequences of the Corona Pandemic. The measures taken in 2020 are likely to be ten times higher than the activities related to the financial crisis in 2008/09. The value driver for gold is the fact that it cannot be produced artificially and, in addition, by 2029, annual production volumes are estimated to have fallen by 45%, which could have an additional panic effect.

Producer with an appetite for take-overs

B2Gold is an established gold company that focuses on the production of the precious metal. The company is also active in Africa and operates mines in Namibia and West Africa. Against the background that a production peak of all gold companies is expected in 2020, the focus is likely to be increasingly on replenishment, i.e. the acquisition of exploration companies specialising in the discovery of new deposits. Typically, companies such as B2Gold take-over the successful explorers as soon as they have reached a critical quantity of gold. It can also be an advantage if the new discoveries are already in the vicinity of the company's own mines.

Focused on West Africa

Desert Gold Ventures is an exploration company with properties in West Africa. The company's properties cover more than 400 km2 and are located in the vicinity of well-known mining companies such as B2Gold, Barrick Gold and Iamgold. The management has been able to prove gold at various locations in the past. Further drilling programs are planned to collect more data on the properties to bring the gold reserves to the targeted level of up to six million ounces. After the market closed yesterday, the company announced a CAD 6.5 million capital increase to be financially prepared for the next drilling season in the fourth quarter. The company has already announced that the results of the latest drilling program will be released in a timely manner.

Successful in Namibia

Osino Resources is also an exploration company and focuses on the development of its own projects in Namibia. The company is led by CEO Heye Daun, who has already built up an explorer until 2012 and sold it to B2Gold. Daun knows what is important and will try to build on the historic success with Osino. In 2020 the company has already received more than CAD 30 million from investors for the exploration of the areas. According to the latest news from Osino, recent drilling has been very successful and the money is being invested in the exploration of new drill targets. The company is focused on releasing a substantial resource estimate as soon as possible.

Barrick Gold, Blackrock Gold, Osino Resources: buy when weak?

  • Gold

The price of gold and silver has come under pressure in the past few days and so too has the price of the shares of the companies involved in the creation of value for precious metals. The fear of another lockdown in connection with the Corona pandemic seems to be worrying the markets. Against this backdrop the central banks and governments continue to support the economy with measures. The correction in precious metals may now be an opportunity to enter, because when the presses are running at full speed, the oldest currency in the world is usually a safe haven.

BHP Group, Newcrest Mining, SolGold: Getting bogged down or putting all your eggs in one basket

  • Gold

When it comes to investing in commodity companies, the BHP Group is a household name. The British company is active worldwide, mining coal, iron ore, copper and other commodities and has long been considered a solid dividend earner. But recently the company has disappointed: Special effects put pressure on profits, unrest in Chile made life difficult for BHP and the Corona pandemic also left its mark: the bottom line at the end of the financial year at the end of June was a profit of no less than EUR 6.75 billion. While the mood among investors was not particularly good, BHP cut its dividend by around ten percent, thus spoiling shareholders’ sentiment even further. On a year-on-year basis, the share price fell by around 1.4%. In view of the good performance of copper following the outbreak of the pandemic, this is too little for many investors.

B2Gold, Barrick Gold, Desert Gold: Did Warren Buffett bet on the right horse?

  • Gold

The price of gold has stabilized above the USD 1,900.00 per troy ounce mark in recent weeks. Against the background that the Corona Pandemic is not slowing down and that a second wave is becoming measurable in many places, the actions taken by governments and central banks are continuing cheerfully, thus ensuring further demand for the world's oldest currency. Those who want to protect their assets are probably best off buying shares in a gold company like Warren Buffett, and for those who can't decide, there is also a solution.
