GT Gold, Scottie Resources, Tudor Gold - in British Columbia's Golden Triangle
Canada's West Coast is home to numerous gold companies. The northern part of the province of British Columbia is home to the so-called Golden Triangle, which is known for its gold deposits. Gold production is driven by various companies. Precious metals are regarded by investors as an important addition to their portfolios, and in connection to this, the demand for gold and silver is growing along with the money supply. Next Sunday and Monday a commodity conference will take place in Vancouver (VRIC) and the companies will answer the questions of the investors.
