The Gold Report
Jeff Desjardins and James Fraser Look at Junior Miners in a Way that May Surprise You
The Mining Report: A recent article on, "The Great Divide: Inequality in Gold Juniors Means Opportunity," said: "It's clear we've reached a new level of separation between the wheat and the chaff." What does that mean for investors? Jeff Desjardins: As the bear market has progressed, many companies have struggled to raise the necessary funds to advance their projects. Even for those that have been more fortunate, it has often come in the form of dilutive financings. On the oth

Jeff Killeen: Cash and Catalysts Rule the Day
The Gold Report: Two years ago CIBC World Markets recommended taking a short position on a selection of gold stocks. What's CIBC's view on gold stocks today? Jeff Killeen: We had put out a basket of names recommending some short positions, but at that time gold was trading at about $1,600/ounce ($1,600/oz) and there was little support for the price at that level. That dynamic doesn't seem to be at play in today's environment. We are maintaining our current recommendation: Investors should be at

Filipe Martins: African Miners that Can Generate Cash Flow and Dividends
The Mining Report: Some of the experts we have interviewed for the The Mining Report and The Gold Report is that a $1,250–1,350/ounce ($1,250–1,350/oz) gold price can be expected in the short term. Do you agree? Filipe Martins: At GMP, we forecast a $1,350/oz gold price from roughly 2015, but we think there is a real risk that the gold price could fall before it rises, given the threat of higher borrowing costs. Most recently, we haven't seen the increases in physical demand from China and Indi

Sprott's Charles Oliver: Gold at $1,500 by Christmas?
The Gold Report: Gold continues to languish under $1,300 per ounce ($1,300/oz), even as full economic recoveries in the U.S. and the European Union (EU) have yet to occur, despite trillions in new debt and stimulus. Meanwhile, we have two wars in the Middle East that could escalate, as well as reports that Russian troops are in Ukraine. With all that in mind, do you think that gold's fundamentals are less important than they once were, or is the price of gold being held back by other factors? C

Gold plunge to $900 wouldn't bother Goldcorp; it would buy poorer miners
* * * Goldcorp CEO Says Gold Price Plunge to $900 Would Be an Opportunity, Not a Disaster By John Shmuel National Post, Toronto Saturday, September 6, 2014 TORONTO -- The chief executive of Goldcorp Inc. is not fretting over lower gold prices this year and says he would view any price declines as an opportunity to buy assets. In an interview with the Financial Post on Friday, Charles Jeannes, president and CEO of Goldcor

  Above-ground Gold Stock - How Much Is There and Why Does it Matter? 
To understand the price of gold, the relevant supply is the total supply, not the new supply coming to market during the last year, week or month. The supply of gold consists of all of the supply that exists, and the relevant demand is the total demand, not the new demand coming to market during any year. For gold, there is always a large stockpile, and it never gets smaller. The vast majority of all the gold mined throughout human history still exists and is held either in bars, coins, or jewel

Keep the Faith, Says Michael Fowler: Juniors and Midtiers Poised for M&A-Fueled Breakout
The Gold Report: A report titled "M&A and Capital Raising in Mining and Metals, 1H 2014" from Ernest and Young (EY) says that mining and metals deal values in H1/2014 are "down 69% year-on-year, to $16.7 billion ($16.7B), from $53.8B, with deal volumes down 34% over the same period." Why aren't more mergers and acquisitions (M&A) happening in the precious metals space? Michael Fowler: The first reason is that there are some big egos in the mining sector and some mining companies would prefer to

Maybe for another $100 they'll throw in the gold mining company too
From the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., Toronto Friday, August 22, 2014 If property prices are getting you down, you could become the proud owner of an entire town for about the same price as a home in a big city like Vancouver or Toronto. Bradian, British Columbia -- 22 houses sitting on 20 hectares -- is on the market for just under $1 million. And while most ghost towns are fairly remote, Bradian is only about 109 kilom

Donlin gold mine in Alaska brings hope of jobs -- and fear of destruction
DONLIN GOLD WORK CAMP, Alaska -- On a remote ridge in the big, open space between Bethel and Anchorage, where the land and minerals are owned by Alaska native corporations, developers want to cut deep into the earth to extract microscopic bits of gold. The Donlin Gold project is moving quietly forward. Backers are seeking key government permissions and trying to secure the trust of local residents. Developers say the mine's design will be the safest, most stable possible. A wealth of good jobs w

Unlikely Bedfellows: Mines That Run on Solar or Wind Power
Mining companies are often seen as dinosaurs when it comes to making changes that will benefit the environment, but that perception may be shifting as some companies turn to renewable energy to cut costs and lighten their carbon footprint. At first blush, mining and renewable energy seem incongruous. Mining's reputation as a voracious consumer of fossil fuels is well deserved, especially surface mining, where diesel-sucking haul trucks perform endless loops to and from gigantic pits sc

Björn Paffrath: Mining Sector Bottom Is In and Opportunities Abound
The Gold Report: Do you expect a broad market correction over the course of the next two years or so? Björn Paffrath: Since the crisis in 2008, most of the well-known indexes, such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average or the German DAX, have almost doubled, and many individual companies have performed even better. Of course it is all liquidity driven, but it's at a level where we have to ask: Is it still justified or are we already in the next bubble? On one side, indexes skyrocketed on the l

Chris Thompson: Gold and Silver Miners that Can Make Money Now
The Gold Report: In your previous Gold Report interview of Dec. 31, 2013, you predicted 2014 prices of $1,400 per ounce ($1,400/oz) for gold and $25/oz for silver. Do you think that gold and silver can still meet those prices this year? Chris Thompson: Those figures referred to the high side of the anticipated trading range for both metals. Today, our prediction for the high side in 2014 is $1,350/oz for gold and $22/oz for silver. In other words, we see silver potentially trading up to $22/oz

Australian gold miners note crash in exploration
By Tess Ingram Australian Financial Review, Melbourne Thursday, August 7, 2014 If there is one key message from this week's presentations at the gold-dominated Diggers and Dealers conference, it is that increasing exploration is essential to the sustainability of the gold sector. Gold exploration expenditure dropped off 30 per cent or $34.8 million during the March quarter, in line with a 25.5 per cent fall in total expl

Gold industry takeovers reach three-year high as hunters feast There's no sign of a let up in gold industry takeovers as a surge in acquisitions by producers, led by Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. and Yamana Gold Inc., has pushed deals to a three-year high. Mid-sized and small producers are seizing on assets discarded by larger competitors as they trim portfolios to focus on their most profitable operations after gold last year notched up the biggest annual drop in more than three decades.

Ralph Aldis: Don't Get Married to Your StocksÂ?It's a Performance-Based Relationship
The Gold Report: U.S. Global Investors recently published a report outlining the two trades that drive gold demand: fear and love. Which one is more powerful right now? Ralph Aldis: The love trade is the foundation of owning gold stocks and gold because 70?80% of gold goes into jewelry. On the margin, the fear trade is driven more by the headline risks that we've seen in the Ukraine and the Middle East, or by inflation spikes. That's what drives people to take action.
