Barrick Gold, Desert Gold Ventures, Triumph Gold - the gold boom has begun

  • Gold

The price of gold has been rising for more than a year and there is no end in sight. As long as the central banks print money to cure the problems of the Corona Pandemic, the flight from money will continue and investors will exchange paper for gold or other tangible assets. If you have no plans today, then you should think about investing in gold. If you already have a busy schedule, then you should take the time. Don't put yourself in the position of being annoyed at not having traded after these lines when the price reaches USD 2,000.00 and above.

Margins increase and reserves decrease

Barrick Gold is one of the largest gold producers in the world. The company has gold and copper projects in 13 different countries around the globe. The focus is on regional diversification as well as high margin and long mine life. As the price of gold rises, the margin will also continue to increase. The temptation suggests that production volumes will also be increased, so that revenues will continue to rise even at this high level.

The biggest challenge for Barrick and all other gold producers, however, is the fact that reserves are continually shrinking - and rapidly. Since 2012, the largest producers have recorded a 34% decline in reserves. Barrick also predicts that by 2020 the production peak of all companies will be reached with around 118 million ounces and that in the following years significantly less new gold will be on the market. By 2029, the annual production rate is even expected to fall below 65 million ounces. Producers can fix the decline in reserves most easily by taking over exploration companies. An M&A wave in the gold sector is likely to start soon. So anyone who wants to invest in gold should have a foot in the door of promising exploration companies.

Acquisition target in West Africa

Desert Gold is active in West Africa and has properties covering more than 400 km2. The company has proven gold occurrences in various locations in the past and is currently exploring for further structures containing the precious metal. The management has set a target of up to six million ounces to be proven on the properties. The current and future drilling programs are therefore designed to accumulate the amount of deposits towards this magnitude.

Desert Gold is not alone in the region and is surrounded by renowned producers such as B2Gold, Barrick Gold and Iamgold. These producers already operate mines in West Africa and are potential buyers of Desert Gold. The exploration company becomes attractive for a takeover already with a critical amount of gold reserves. In Africa, takeovers in 2018 have already paid more than USD 200.00 per ounce in the ground - and at that time the price of gold was significantly lower.

Fresh capital in the bank

Triumph Gold is successfully exploring for gold deposits on its properties in the Yukon, Canada. The company already has the producer Newmont on board as a major shareholder. As with most successful exploration companies, Triumph Gold focuses on the acquisition by a producer as an exit strategy for its shareholders.

An acquisition can be interesting for a producer for a number of reasons. If the acquirer is already active in the region, such a transaction has many organisational advantages in the neighbourhood. The infrastructure and personnel are already largely in place. But it also happens that a takeover means the entry of a producer into a new region. Triumph Gold announced the completion of a financing last Friday. According to this, the company has received more than CAD 3.3 million in fresh capital. With the money, the management can continue to beautify the bride.

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?
