Barrick Gold, Scottie Resources, Triumph Gold - Entry chance after rally

  • Gold

Who would have thought that a report on a Covid-19 vaccine from Russia would bring a breather to the gold rally? Within 24 hours, the price of the precious metal slipped through the USD 2,000.00 and USD 1,900.00 markers, recording a loss in value of around USD 150.00 per troy ounce. Currently the price is trading at USD 1,880.00 and the correction is the largest since March 2020, when the panic about the spread of the Corona virus was at its highest. Gold's rise has already begun in May 2019 at below USD 1,300.00 and the current trend may offer an excellent entry opportunity.

BARRICK GOLD CORPORATION - Gold is running out

Barrick is one of the largest gold producers in the world and has mines around the globe. The company has benefited considerably from the price increase of gold since last year, as it has significantly increased the margins for the precious metal. Efforts are therefore being made to increase production or run at maximum capacity in order to generate high profits. Each gram of gold can be mined and sold only once and this fact is a challenge for the company as well as for the other producers.

The industry expects gold production to peak in 2020. Around 118 million ounces of fresh gold will reach the market and from then on the quantity will go down. In 2029, only about 65 million ounces of gold are expected to reach the market. The reserves of the largest producers have already decreased by more than 34% since 2012. In addition, it takes longer and longer for a new discovery to go into production. In 2000, the development time was only ten years. Experts now expect that it can take up to 30 years before a new discovery receives all the necessary permits for mining and meets the necessary requirements. To save time, producers usually acquire other companies in the supply chain.

SCOTTIE RESOURCES CORP - Focus on the Golden Triangle

Scottie Resources is focused on the exploration of its own projects in British Columbia. The company owns, among other projects, a mine that has produced gold in the past. Scottie's properties are located in the so-called 'Golden Triangle', a region known for its precious metal deposits. The company has already attracted the attention of Canadian commodity investor Eric Sprott, who joined the company at the beginning of the year and has since held almost 10% of the shares.

Scottie's strategy is to define the amount of gold already proven and add new discoveries. With this in mind, the company will seek to increase the value of the company through drilling programs. Typically, explorers of this type are acquired by larger neighbors or a large producer uses a take-over to enter a new region. Meanwhile, CEO Brad Rourke is busy making the bride pretty.

TRIUMPH GOLD CORP - expanding the Yukon deposits

Triumph Gold is focused on the exploration and development of its own properties in Yukon, Canada. The company has a proven track record of numerous discoveries and is working to expand the data on the amount of the deposits through additional drilling programs. As the largest shareholder, producer Newmont is already on board and it stands to reason that a take-over bid for Triumph Gold's shareholders will be made once a critical quantity of gold has been proven.

Triumph Gold's Freegold Mountain Project was acquired in 2006 and since then 20 zones of mineralization have been discovered. A particular advantage of this 200 square kilometre area is that it has a year-round passable road, which ensures access. This logistical advantage does not increase the cost of drilling and the teams have a road access to the project. Further news from the company on the planned drilling program is expected in the coming months.


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 long or short positions in the aforementioned companies and that there may therefore be a conflict of interest. Apaton Finance GmbH may have a paid contractual relationship with the company, which is reported on in the context of the Apaton Finance GmbH Internet offer as well as in the social media, on partner sites or in e-mail messages. Further details can be found in our Conflict of Interest & Risk Disclosure.

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.
