Nevada in focus
Blackrock Gold's share price peaked at CAD 1.61 in July 2020. The shares are now changing hands at less than CAD 1.00. The value of the company has fallen to below CAD 100 million and with this development, it is certainly an invitation to enter the market at a reduced price.
The company recently announced that some of the projects would be floated on the stock exchange in a separate company. The project is currently being examined and in the event of a positive decision, shareholders will also have a stake in the new company. The spin-out gives the company the advantage that the project can be financed separately in the new company without further diluting Blackrock Gold for a necessary capital round. The companies can then focus on their own projects.
As Blackrock Gold has already announced, in July 2020 the company discovered a grade of 2,198 grams of silver equivalent ("AgEq") per tonne at 3.0 metres, which came as a surprise to market participants. In a further announcement, 1,577 grams of silver equivalent per tonne over 4.6 metres, including 3.0 metres at a grade of 2,215 grams of silver equivalent per tonne, was announced. The projects in Nevada offer potential.
Blackrock Gold CEO Andrew Pollard said: "(...) Though we experienced deviation in some drillholes that caused them to miss their targets, we've been able to recalibrate quickly as we ramp up our exploration efforts with the recent addition of a core drill rig. With many assays pending, and plenty of drilling to come, including at yet untested targets, we are excited to add a new chapter to this once storied district."
Setbacks were always opportunities
Osino Resources is focused on projects in Namibia and CEO Heye Daun is an experienced company leader. In the past, Daun had successfully prepared a company takeover and sold it to B2Gold. The previous company was also active in Namibia. Daun and his colleagues, in familiar surroundings, are driving the development of Osino Resources so that the first resource can be calculated as soon as possible. The ambitious team wants to have completed all the necessary drilling by October 2020.
The Twin Hills Central gold project is the focus of activities. The charm of the project lies in its high continuity and depth extension. A few weeks ago, the Osino Resources share was still trading at a peak of CAD 1.65. Currently, the shares are changing hands at CAD 1.35. A year ago the shares were trading at under CAD 0.80. During the Corona Crash in March 2020, the price of the share was even briefly below 0.45 CAD. Since then, the performance has been supported by positive reports.
Warren Buffett Bonus used up
Barrick Gold recently surprised the market with a strategic decision. The company will not develop the Pascua-Lama project in the border region of Argentina and Chile. This was preceded by years of dispute with the authorities and the population on the Chilean side. Barrick Gold justified its decision by stating that since the merger with Randgold, emphasis has been placed on developing a good relationship with the population.
The share was in the spotlight a few weeks ago when Berkshire Hathaway informed the market that the investment company had bought into Barrick Gold. As a result, the share rose by over 10%. The stock is now trading at around CAD 36.00 again - at the entry-level of Warren Buffett. Since April 2020, Barrick Gold has fluctuated between around CAD 30.00 and 40.00. With a market capitalization of around CAD 67 billion, the company is one of the heavyweights in the mining industry.
