Barrick Gold, Osino Resources, Triumph Gold - who will double next?

August 4th, 2020 will probably go down in history books, the day when the gold price first climbed above the USD 2,000.00 mark. But perhaps it will also lose significance, because the USD 2,500.00 and USD 3,000.00 mark may soon fall. Why? Quite simply because, as the money supply increases, more and more people are fleeing into the oldest currency in the world: gold. The advantage of physical gold over certificates and other printable products is its uniqueness. While central banks around the world print money to maintain social peace during the Corona restrictions, the price marks for physical gold will fall like dominoes.

Gold production will shrink

Companies such as Barrick Gold, Iamgold and Newmont are responsible for the gold supply. Without these large producers, it would be impossible to satisfy the appetite of the market. However, experts also expect gold production to peak in 2020. According to forecasts, this year around 118 million ounces of gold will be brought to the market by the largest producers. Starting next year, a decline in the annual quantity is expected. In 2029 only 65 million ounces of gold are expected to reach the market. There is still some time to go before then, but a decline of around 45% in annual production volume by the end of the decade has the potential to cause some panic.

Gold supply is getting harder

B2Gold, Barrick Gold and Newmont, as well as the other big names, have already recorded a reduction in reserves of around 34% overall since 2012. In addition, the time window from discovery to production is lengthening on average from year to year. Whereas in 2000 it took around ten years to extract the first gold, by 2010 it will have taken 20 years and by 2020 it is expected to take 30 years. The reasons for this include environmental protection requirements and approval procedures.

Takeovers and mergers will increase

The producers are aware of this development and are also engaged in the exploration and development of their own projects. As the price of gold rises, the margins of these companies will increase significantly and fill the war chest for takeovers and mergers. The focus will soon be on companies in the exploration and development stage that have already discovered or are about to discover more than one million ounces of gold. Ideally, takeover targets in already established regions.

Focus is on exploration

There are some companies that could be considered as a possible target. Osino Resources is focused on the development of its own gold projects in Namibia. CEO Heye Daun has successfully built up a company in the past and sold it to B2Gold. Osino is now also active in the familiar neighbourhood and will probably be taken over by a large producer in the foreseeable future.

Triumph Gold has projects in the Yukon and Newmont is already the largest shareholder. It is expected that these companies will be able to expand the gold deposits with further drilling, thus increasing the probability and value of a takeover. Exploration, i.e. the work of these companies, for example, is where the future supply for the major producers comes from.

Desert Gold, Barrick Gold, K+S - Now or never?

  • Gold

With inflation of over 4% in Germany and the continued massive money printing of the central banks, every investor should think about protecting oneself against the loss of purchasing power. To dismiss this as a temporary phenomenon would be a mistake. In times of high inflation, a good strategy is to invest in tangible assets such as stocks, real estate, and commodities.

2020 shows an extreme increase in government debt in the Eurozone. Due to the Corona Crisis, the ratio of public debt to gross domestic product increased to 90.7%, according to the Eurostat statistics agency. The situation worsened further in the crisis countries, especially in Greece. There, the debt-to-GDP ratio was 205.6%, followed by Italy with 155.8% and Portugal with 133.6%. There is no end in sight to this spiral. In the long term, however, investors can protect themselves by investing in the precious metals sector.
