gold outlook free report

Fresh off a major discovery, RNC Minerals (TSX:RNX) has recovered the first specimen slab from the Father’s Day vein at its Beta Hunt mine in Western Australia.

Weighing in at 90 kilograms, the slab is estimated to contain 1,000 ounces of gold.

Cut in the field, the slab shows visible gold and quartz structures; going forward, the slab will be cut into smaller specimen slabs to highlight coarse gold and other mineral features. Once all the slabs have been cut, final weights and gold content will be determined for each.

Mining operations to remove a second large specimen slab from the Father’s Day vein are still ongoing, with the expectation that additional high-grade coarse gold will be extracted over the next week.

“We expect that these spectacular specimen slabs will be highly sought after by mineral specimen collectors. With a minimum of 30-35,000 ounces expected from the Father’s Day vein area, the company will be in a substantial net cash position to fully fund its upcoming activities,” RNC President and CEO Mark Selby said in a statement.

RNC Minerals discovered the Father’s Day vein last month, unearthing over 9,000 ounces of gold from a space the size of a living room. The find was later boosted to 24,000 ounces of gold worth $38 million.

While the company had previously put Beta Hunt up for sale in March, later selecting a preferred bidder in July, the major September news made RNC reconsider its options for the mine.

“The for sale sign is off the lawn,” Selby previously told the Investing News Network. “We think it has the potential to be a very large, long-life gold asset and a great addition to the Kambalda-Kalgoorlie area.”

World’s top copper producer faces lengthy smelter halt at major mine

By Cecilia Jamasmie

Chile’s state miner Codelco, the world’s No.1 copper producer, has revealed its smelter at Chuquicamata, its second largest operation by size, will be running at reduced rates until at least the end of the year, as it hurries to complete a planned overhaul ahead of stricter emissions standards coming in effect.

CChile’s Codelco is in the midst of upgrading its smelter at Chuquicamata, its second largest operation by size.

Unions expect production at the facility to be suspended for at least 60 days, while the company said some processes are likely to be affected for as many as 80 days, starting Dec. 13. That day, Bloomberg reports, is when the new rules will begin to be enforced.

Century-old Chuquicamata is running out of profitable ore and has to switch to a modern underground operation. The new mine, this time underground, will need 1,700 fewer workers, the company has said, partly because conveyor belts will replace trucks.

Codelco, which hands over all of its profits to the state, holds vast copper deposits, accounting for 10% of the world’s known proven and probable reserves and about 11% of the global annual copper output with 1.8 million metric tonnes of production.

Last year, Chuquicamata produced 330,900 tonnes of copper, out of Codelco’s total of 1.734 million tonnes and the miner contributed nearly $3 billion to Chile’s coffers.

Great Panther Silver Reports Third Quarter 2018 Production Results and Provides Corporate Update

By Ashley Cowell

Great Panther Silver (TSX:GPR; NYSE:GPL) (“Great Panther”; the “Company”) announces production results for the third quarter (“Q3”) 2018 from its two wholly-owned Mexican silver mining operations: the Guanajuato Mine Complex (“GMC”), which includes the San Ignacio Mine, and the Topia Mine in Durango.

Nine Months ended September 30, 2018 (Compared to the Nine Months ended September 30, 2017)

  • Silver production decreased 3% to 1,419,712 silver ounces (“Ag oz”)
  • Gold production decreased 3% to 16,060 gold ounces (“Au oz”)
  • Lead and zinc production increased 75% and 41%, respectively
  • Consolidated metal production increased 11% to 3,219,182 silver equivalent ounces (“Ag eq oz”)(1)
  • Ore processed increased 4% to 284,985 tonnes

Third Quarter 2018 Production Highlights (Compared to Third Quarter 2017)

  • Silver production decreased 16% to 448,840 Ag oz
  • Gold production decreased 19% to 4,737 Au oz
  • Lead and zinc production increased 29% and 14%, respectively
  • Consolidated metal production decreased 5% to 1,023,128 Ag eq oz(1)
  • Ore processed decreased 1% to 92,920 tonnes
(1) Ag eq oz for 2018 presented in the press release are calculated using an 80:1 Au:Ag ratio, and ratios of 1:0.0636 and 1:0.0818 for the price/ounce of silver to price/pound of lead and zinc respectively. Comparative Ag eq oz for 2017 are calculated using a 70:1 Au:Ag ratio, and ratios of 1:0.0559 and 1:0.00676 for the price/ounce of silver to price/pound of lead and zinc respectively. The changes reflect changes in the prices of gold, lead and zinc in relation to the price of silver in 2018 relative to 2017. Prior disclosure of 2018 Ag eq oz production results were computed on different ratios. Please refer to notes in the applicable disclosures.

“We remain on track to meet our production guidance for 2018 with good year-to-date production performance, despite a decline in silver and gold production for Q3 compared to Q3 of last year”, stated James Bannantine, President & CEO. “Given the sustained low metal price environment, we adjusted our mine plan in the third quarter to exercise the flexibility between our mines and plant to reduce mining of higher cost stopes at the Guanajuato Mine. This was a factor accounting for the relative decline in silver and gold production in the third quarter, along with lower grades and recoveries at the GMC and a particularly strong quarter of production for Q3 of 2017. We also initiated other cost reduction measures at our Mexican operations to address the low metal prices. Our focus over the coming months will be on completing the acquisition of Beadell Resources Limited, as well as continuing to progress the Bulk Sample Program at our Coricancha Mine in Peru and advance to a production decision in early 2019.”

(1) Silver equivalent ounces for 2018 were calculated using an 80:1 Au:Ag ratio, and ratios of 1:0.0636 and 1:0.0818 for the price/ounce of silver to price/pound of lead and zinc, respectively. The ratios are reflective of average metal prices for 2018.
(2) Silver equivalent ounces for 2017 were calculated using a 70:1 Au:Ag ratio, and ratios of 1:0.0559 and 1:0.0676 for the price/ounce of silver to price/pound of lead and zinc, respectively, and are reflective of average metal prices for 2017.

Guanajuato Mine Complex

In Q3 2018, production at the GMC included silver production of 448,840 oz and gold production of 4,737 oz, which represent a 16% and 19% decrease, respectively, compared to the same quarter in the previous year. During Q3 2018, we took steps to reduce mining of higher cost areas of the Guanajuato Mine. This was partly offset by an increase in ore feed from the San Ignacio Mine. Although San Ignacio has a lower overall mining cost, metal production was also affected by lower grades reflecting variability in the mineralization. The increase in Ag eq oz production reflects the change in the relative Au to Ag price as reflected in the Au:Ag ratio used to compute Ag eq oz.

The San Ignacio mine accounted for 76% of the total ore processed at the GMC in Q3 2018, compared to 58% in Q3 2017.

(1) Silver equivalent ounces for 2018 were calculated using an 80:1 Au:Ag ratio, and ratios of 1:0.0636 and 1:0.0818 for the price/ounce of silver to price/pound of lead and zinc, respectively. The ratios are reflective of average metal prices for 2018.
(2) Silver equivalent ounces for 2017 were calculated using a 70:1 Au:Ag ratio, and ratios of 1:0.0559 and 1:0.0676 for the price/ounce of silver to price/pound of lead and zinc, respectively, and are reflective of average metal prices for 2017.

Topia Mine

In Q3 2018, silver and gold production from the Topia Mine declined 2% and 14%, respectively, compared to the same quarter in the previous year. Lead and zinc production increased 29% and 14% compared to the same quarter in the previous year, which contributed to the 15% increase in metal production in the quarter. The rise in metal production is attributed to higher tonnage processed coupled with higher lead and zinc grades.

The increase in ore processed is the result of a combination of mining areas with wider veins, as well as higher mill availability due to improved operational efficiencies.

The production tonnage in Q3 2018 saw lower silver and gold grades compared to the same quarter in the prior year. However, the decrease in silver and gold grades was more than offset by the increased lead and zinc grades.

(1) Silver equivalent ounces for 2018 were calculated using an 80:1 Au:Ag ratio, and ratios of 1:0.0636 and 1:0.0818 for the price/ounce of silver to price/pound of lead and zinc, respectively. The ratios are reflective of average metal prices for 2018.
(2) Silver equivalent ounces for 2017 were calculated using a 70:1 Au:Ag ratio, and ratios of 1:0.0559 and 1:0.0676 for the price/ounce of silver to price/pound of lead and zinc, respectively, and are reflective of average metal prices for 2017.

Canada’s Rusoro Mining reaches $1.3B deal with Venezuela

By Cecilia Jamasmie

Canadian junior Rusoro Mining (TSX-V: RML), which in March scored a major victory in its international arbitration complaint against Venezuela, has accepted the almost $1.3 billion offered by the country’s government as settlement for the seizure of the company’s gold projects.

The deal gives Venezuela Rusoro’s mining data and forces it to fully release the arbitral award issued in favour of the miner in August 2016.

Settlement creates partnership that could lead to restarting production at Rusoro’s former mines in the South American country.

It also creates a partnership between the parties that will assess the current status of Rusoro’s former gold projects and consider options of restarting production at two mines. A decision of the future of those assets will be made by the end of January, the company said.

The dispute between Rusoro and the South American nation goes back to 2011, when former president Hugo Chávez nationalized the gold industry and seized the company’s 95%-owned Choco 10 mine as well as its 50%-owned Isidora mine.

The Vancouver-based company attempted a series of negotiations with Chávez’s left-wing government but after they all failed, its legal team took the matter to the International Center for the Settlement of Investment Disputes Expropriation (ICSID).

That Tribunal upheld Rusoro’s claims that Venezuela had breached its obligations under the Canada-Venezuela Bilateral Investment Treaty. It also order the country’s government, in addition to pay compensation for damages, to contribute $3.3 million towards Rusoro’s costs in the arbitration.

BTU Mobilizes Crews to Dixie Halo Property Contiguous to Great Bear’s Dixie Project, Red Lake District, Canada

By Ashley Cowell

™

BTU Metals Corp. (TSXV:BTU)(“BTU” or the “Company”) announces that crews have mobilized for a site visit on the Company’s Dixie Halo property, which adjoins the northern and eastern boundaries of Great Bear Resources Corp.’s (TSXV:GBR) Dixie Project located in the Red Lake District of Ontario. Great Bear recently reported the SLZ discovery in drill hole DSL-004, at only 75 metres (m) of vertical depth, returning 1.75 m of 101.05 grams per tonne gold (“g/t gold”) within a vein zone of 10.35 m of 18.23 g/t gold (see PR dated Sept. 27, 2018). The new discovery has generated an online staking rush in the area with the Company’s Dixie Halo viewed as the closest to, and one of the most strategically located property positions in this emerging gold camp. In addition, Great Bear has recently raised over $10 million with funds focused towards exploration of the Dixie Lake project.

The site visit is led by both the Company’s VP of Exploration, Don McKinnon, as well as independent director Doug Hunter (P.Geo).

One priority target is located on the southern portion of the Dixie Halo property, where previous work by Laurentian Goldfields (now Pure Gold Corp.) outlined a significant Mobile Metal Ion (MMI) geochemical gold anomaly approximately 500 by 700 meters in area. MMI™ measures metal ions that travel upward from mineralization to unconsolidated surface materials such soil, till, sand and so on. These mobile metal ions are released from mineralized material and travel upward toward the surface. MMI It is especially well suited for terrain with extensive overburden cover such as the Dixie Lake area, and this geochemical procedure is widely applied for buried Archean gold mineralization.

Lynas jumps after its critic in Malaysian Gov’t leaves review team

By Cecilia Jamasmie

Shares in rare earths producer Lynas Corporation (ASX:LYC) climbed on Friday, closing 9.2 percent higher, after the Malaysian minister in charge of a committee reviewing the miner’s plant offered to step down following criticism that she would not be impartial.

Deputy Minister to the Prime Minister’s Office Fuziah Salleh, a long-standing critic of Lynas’ plant, said she didn’t want to be used by the company to divert attention from the effects of the plant’s radioactive waste on people and the environment.

Fuziah Salleh, a long-standing critic of Lynas, said she didn’t want to be used by the company to divert attention from the effects of the plant’s radioactive waste.

“If I remain in the committee, I will not be able to provide comments to the media and the public,” Salleh said according to local paper New Straits Times. “When I am no longer chairman [of the review committee], it will be easier for me to make comments and fight from the outside.”

Earlier this month, the Sydney-based miner raised concerns about the impartiality of Salleh and committee member Wong Tack, both long time opponents of having Lynas’ refinery in Malaysia.

The six-year-old facility — known as the Lynas Advance Material Plant (LAMP) — was the centre of relentless attacks from environmental groups and local residents while under construction in 2012. They feared about the impact the low-level radioactive waste the refinery generates could have on the health of those living nearby and the environment.

Lynas is the only major rare earths miner outside China. The metallic elements, crucial in the production of magnets, are extracted in Western Australia, but processed in Malaysia.

The company’s operating license in the country is up for renewal in September next year.

Deficits, Rates & Gold To Reach Vertiginous Heights

By Common Stock Warrants

October 10, 2018
by Egon von Greyerz

The end of an empire is a dramatic but also drawn out event with very few willing to face the facts. As the end is getting closer, denial is at its peak. We can probably figure out how it will end but not quite when. Looking at the facts, the beginning of the end is here. The signs are clear. Here we have a country that for the last 27 years has doubled debt every eight years and the trend continues uninhibited. This is a country that for decades has been living above its means by borrowing unlimited amounts. Well, it is not a Banana Republic, nor Argentina or Venezuela but the biggest economy in the world – the soon not so great USA.

The US economy is just like Humpty Dumpty, big, fat and unlikely to recover from the coming fall for a very long time.

US DEBT HAS INCREASED 58 YEARS IN A ROW

The road to perdition normally takes many turns. But not in the case of the US. This has been a straight road to what will be the most spectacular fall in economic history. Since 1960 US debt has increased every single year without fail. There are some who are under the illusion that the debt went down in the 1990s due to surpluses in the Clinton years. But these were fake surpluses and the debt continued to rise also during that period.

In 1960 the debt was $286 billion and it reached $1 trillion when Reagan become president in 1981. This much admired president managed to almost treble US debt during his reign. No wonder he was popular, especially since he also managed to send the Dow up 2.5 times after a decade of sideways markets. He was a hero and that was certainly deserved. But being a hero involves a great deal of luck in timing. Both Reagan and Thatcher were instruments of their time. After a long period of high inflation, high rates and low economic growth, these two individuals were the right leaders to steer their countries towards better times.

BORROW AND SPEND – BORROW AND SPEND

But sadly that also involved spending money that you don’t have. This was Keynesian economics at its best. Borrow and spend and then borrow some more and spend that too. This is when the era of the rich getting richer started in earnest with wealth concentration benefitting an ever decreasing part of the population. At the same time, ordinary workers have experienced a massive 55% decline in real wages since 1974.

US DEBT HAS DOUBLED EVERY 8 YEARS SINCE 1981

Since Reagan became president in 1981, US debt has on average doubled every 8 years. So, when Trump was elected in late 2016, the most obvious forecast was to extrapolate the historical trend. Thus I made the forecast below in December 2016:

The image above is disturbing not only due to the galloping debt level but also because tax revenues are growing at a snail’s pace. Debt is up 23 times from $0.9 trillion in 1981 to $21.5 trillion today in 2018 and tax revenues up only 6 times (Illustration above shows debt forecast to 2021). How does anyone believe that the stagnant or falling tax revenues will ever be sufficient to reduce the debt. History is telling us differently. The US economy is heading towards bankruptcy in no uncertain terms. The Fed’s only remedy will be to print unlimited amounts of money until the dollar has become totally worthless.

US DEBT $40 TRILLION BY 2025

Trump inherited a debt of $20 trillion and whether he or someone else will be there 8 years later, it seems quite a sure bet that debt will at least double to $40 trillion by 2025.

Whether or not the debt will reach $28 trillion at the half way stage in 2021, as I have forecasted in the graph above, we will soon know. That would mean an average deficit of $230 billion per month in the next 28 months. Since the August US deficit was $214 billion, the $28 trillion doesn’t seem too unrealistic. What we know is that debt is already at $21.5 trillion or $1.5 trillion above the level when Trump took over 19 months ago. And remember this is with a booming economy.

But the finances of USA Inc are not that great. In August for example, half of the budget Outlays were financed by debt – a very disturbing trend if it continues.

HIGHER RATES, HIGHER DEFICITS – RECIPE FOR DISASTER

The biggest factors that will send the debt soaring will be higher interest rates and higher deficits. Interest expense on the US debt in Fiscal 2017-18 was $365 billion. As I discussed in last week’s article, interest rates have turned up and are likely to rise to the 1981 high of 16% at least.

As deficits grow and bond prices collapse, the Fed will totally lose control of the long end of the debt market. The biggest creditors, China and Japan will most certainly assist in this process. Falling bond prices and a falling dollar will make them rush to the exit as quickly as possible when there is still some value left.

Let’s say that in the next few years debt reaches $28 trillion and interest rates 10% whilst tax revenue declines by 15%. At that point, all tax revenue will be absorbed by the interest expense.

I realise that these are assumptions that might not sound realistic today. But in my view they are probably too optimistic. The 2007-9 crisis was never solved but only deferred to a later date. …read more

Golden Arrow Expands into Chile with Agreement to Acquire the Atlantida Copper-Gold Project

By Scott Tibballs

gold outlook free report

Golden Arrow Resources (TSXV:GRG) has announced that it has signed definitive agreements to acquire the 3,450 hectare Atlantida copper-gold projectin Chile’s Atacama region.

The company said that Atlantida is an advanced project which combines mineral rights from two separate owners and includes an extensively drilled copper-gold deposit with an historic resource estimate. By consolidating the land package, Golden Arrow believes there is potential to identify new mineralization and define a significant copper-gold resource.

As quoted in the press release:

Previous exploration at Atlantida resulted in an historic resource estimate of 427 million tonnes averaging 0.43 percent copper equivalent. The resource includes a deep porphyry copper-gold target and a near-surface skarn with higher gold grades which together cover an area of approximately 225 hectares.Situated within the consolidated Atlantida property, this skarn zone is located on the western edge of the claim hosting the historic resource, and extends onto an adjacent claim that has historic workings but has had limited modern exploration. Golden Arrow’s due diligence surface rock samples in this area returned up to 3.7 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 1.98 percent copper, providing an excellent target for new mineral resources. In addition, based on the preliminary due diligence review, Golden Arrow believes the Project is prospective for discovery of similar targets elsewhere within the consolidated Atlantida properties.
