B2Gold, Desert Gold, RosCan Gold - who will be taken over next?

  • Gold

The price of a troy ounce of gold has risen significantly over the past 12 months. Based on the USD, the precious metal has risen from below 1,270.00 to over 1,650.00 per troy ounce. In comparison, the value converted into EUR rose from under 1,150.00 to over 1,500.00. Over a ten-year period, the price of the troy ounce of gold rose by 48.18% in USD and by as much as 83.00% in EUR. As a fear indicator, this price development speaks a clear language. It is therefore advisable for investors to look at the value chain of gold.

Profits with takeover candidates

The extraction of gold in a scalable and investable style is a long road. Typically investors participate in exploration companies when they want to achieve the highest potential in a discovery and subsequent acquisition by a producer. It is important that the region and the projects can demonstrate sufficient potential for gold deposits, so that it is worthwhile for a buyer to enter.

Typically, exploration companies or projects are acquired by gold producers so that reserves can be increased to ensure future production. Exploration companies are particularly exciting in regions where gold producers are already active in the neighbourhood.

B2Gold produces in Mali

In June 2014, gold producer B2Gold announced a USD 570 million takeover bid for exploration company Papillon Resources to gain access to the Fekola Gold Deposit of over 5 million ounces in Mali. The region in West Africa was already interesting back then. B2Gold paid with own shares and therefore Papillon shareholders could continue to benefit from the development of the area.

The share price of B2Gold has doubled since then and those who invested in Papillon early enough were able to increase the value of their investment at least tenfold. The market value of B2Gold was most recently around CAD 6.1 billion.

Desert Gold expands discoveries

Desert Gold Ventures is a gold exploration company with areas in Mali and management plans to discover a deposit of between 1 and 6 million ounces of gold in the coming years. This is usually done through numerous drilling programs and the data obtained from them. The Company has recently successfully completed a program of 74 drill holes and 3,507 metres and has identified several new areas of gold mineralization.

Specific intercepts include 10 metres at 3.03 g/t Au and 30 metres at 2.04 g/t Au. This allows the Company to follow up on previous successes when a grade of 6.3 g/t Au was discovered over 13 metres. The market capitalization of Desert Gold Ventures is approximately CAD 15 million.

RosCan Gold confirms further mineralization

Another exploration company in the Malian neighborhood, on the border with Senegal, is RosCan Gold. The company has also identified numerous gold mineralizations in a program of 50 drill holes and 2,773 metres in length. Highlights include the discovery of gold over a length of 88 metres at 3.18 g/t AU.

This region of Mali appears to have attractive gold deposits. The country is now the fourth largest gold producer in Africa and was able to produce a total of 2.14 million ounces in 2018. The gold deposits in Mali are estimated at over 35 million ounces. RosCan Gold has a market value of approximately CAD 30 million.


Conflict of interest & risk note

In accordance with §34b WpHG we would like to point out that Apaton Finance GmbH as well as partners, authors or employees of Apaton Finance GmbH may hold shares in the aforementioned companies and that there may therefore be a conflict of interest. Further details can be found in our Conflict of Interest & Risk Disclosure.

Agnico Eagle, Osino Resources, Scottie Resources - Preparing for the end of the euro

  • Gold

The Corona Pandemic has changed a lot and brought things to light that were previously unimaginable. In connection with the curfews, most people only spent money on the most necessary purchases. As a result of this restriction, large parts of the economy came to a standstill. To bridge the problems, governments and central banks stepped in to alleviate the effects and consequences for citizens. The package of measures to stimulate the economy around the world is now estimated to be four times greater than was needed during the financial crisis in 2008 - a process with consequences. Following the financial crisis, the price of gold rose from less than USD 800.00 to over USD 1,900.00 per troy ounce. A preview of what is now to follow.

  • Gold

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.
