B2Gold (BTG) Aims to Produce 1,055,000 Ounces of Gold in 2020

B2Gold Corp ’s BTG total gold production in the first nine months of the year was a record 738,939 ounces from all of its operating mines, 4% above the budget, reflecting year-over-year growth of 19%.

Gold Price Analysis: XAU/USD eyes key $1919 level amid coronavirus resurgence – Confluence Detector

Gold is holding up above $1900, looking to extend gains into the third straight day on Wednesday, despite the recent broad US dollar strength. Risk-aversion remains in play amid likely imposition of tighter COVID-19 restrictions in Europe’s top economies, as the second-wave tightens its grip.

Also, benefiting the yieldless gold is the sell-off in the US Treasury yields across the curve amid faltering US economic recovery and election anxiety. Fading prospects of US fiscal stimulus also weighs on the investors’ sentiment.

Editor’s Note: With so much market volatility, stay on top of daily news! Get caught up in minutes with our speedy summary of today’s must-read news and expert opinions. Sign up here! ( Kitco News ) – Gold prices are holding sharp losses, have hit a four-week low and are trading near the daily lows in late-morning action Wednesday. Strong gains in the U.S. dollar index on this day are pressuring the precious metals. December gold futures have seen a bearish downside “breakout” from the recent sideways trading range on the daily bar chart, to produce some technical damage. A move in prices below solid chart support at the September low of $1,851.00 would give the bears more power to suggest a new leg down in prices in the near term. Indeed, the line in the sand for the gold market bulls to now defend is that price level. […]

Kairos cranks up hunt for Pilbara gold

Soil sampling on Kairos Minerals’ Pilbara gold project ground. Credit: File ASX-listed gold explorer, Kairos Minerals, has detected some encouraging gold sniffs at its Croydon project about 120km south-west of Port Hedland following a significant initial reconnaissance RC drilling program.

The Perth-based company put in 29 wide-spaced RC holes totalling 5,586m including 20 holes for 3,815m at the greenfields Fuego prospect. Fuego falls under the Croydon project, which in turn forms part of the company’s overarching Pilbara gold projects “hub” about 100km south of Port Hedland.

To date Kairos has only received assays from the first eight drill holes, with mainly low-grade gold intercepts returned from conglomerates where a low level of sulphides was encountered.

The company says the results from those holes are crucial to building a better understanding of the stratigraphy and its relationship with the gold mineralisation.Kairos’ exploration efforts are currently focused on the potential for intrusive-hosted gold deposits […]

Gold is falling alongside stocks as the market mood sours. Rising coronavirus cases in Europe and the US is weighing on the mood, as well as uncertainty about the elections. The chances of a "blue wave" – a massive Democratic victory – that would ensure massive stimulus seems less certain as investors get nervous ahead of the vote.

Bitcoin’s Rivalry With Gold Plus Millennial Interest Gives It ‘Considerable’ Upside Potential: JPMorgan

Bitcoin’s Rivalry With Gold Plus Millennial Interest Gives It ‘Considerable’ Upside Potential: JPMorgan

Bitcoin has proven itself to be a risk asset, not a safe haven, with “considerable” potential upside, according to a Friday note from JPMorgan’s Global Quantitative and Derivatives Strategy team obtained by CoinDesk.

Writing to clients in “Flows & Liquidity,” one of JPMorgan’s flagship publications, the authors said that characterizing bitcoin as a “risk” asset rather than a “safe” asset is “more appropriate” based on the leading cryptocurrency’s increased positive correlation with the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index since March.

Bitcoin’s function as a risk asset is “likely more of a reflection of a need for an ‘alternative’ currency rather than a need for a ‘safe’ asset or ‘hedge’.”

“To some extent, this is also true with gold,” the authors add, although the yellow metal’s volatility is notably lower than bitcoin’s.How investors currently perceive bitcoin’s value implies that it could “compete more intensely” with gold as an “alternative” currency over the coming […]

‘Gold Rush’ star Rick Ness talks mining during a pandemic: ‘I had one goal in mind and that was redemption’

EXCLUSIVE: Rick Ness was eager to search for gold, even during a global pandemic .

While the coronavirus shut down the world in March and rocked the U.S. economy, gold prices spiked to record highs. And the price of fuel, the biggest expense for a gold miner, bottomed out. That’s why Ness was ready to hit the road in hopes of finding millions of dollars in gold.

The new season of “Gold Rush,” recognized as Discovery’s most-watched series, focuses on how COVID-19 impacted the gold mining industry and how several miners were eager to seek fortune in the wilderness. However, the time crunch and the natural elements would be one of many challenges these crewmen and women had to endure. Ness spoke to Fox News about filming “Gold Rush” during a pandemic, dealing with quarantine and what kept him going during tough times.

Gold steady as coronavirus, US elections uncertainty loom

Gold steady as coronavirus, US elections uncertainty loom

Representative Image. Credit: Reuters Photo Gold prices were little changed on Wednesday, staying above the $1,900-mark, as uncertainties about US elections and surging global Covid-19 cases countered pressure from a firmer dollar and fading hopes of an immediate US stimulus package.

Spot gold was steady as $1,906.15 per ounce by 0329 GMT. US gold futures were down 0.3% at $1,907.10.

"Investors need a reason to buy more gold and the reason to buy gold will come from a policy signal," said Stephen Innes, chief global market strategist at Axi.

"With the virus raging all over, we are going to get stimulus at some point… This is also probably leaning towards more central bank intervention because the economic hit is going to be quite significant," he added.The pandemic has prompted unprecedented money printing and low-interest rates globally, putting gold on track for its best year in a decade given its appeal as a […]

Gold price today: Yellow metal slips, crucial support at Rs 50,750-50,600

Gold price today: Yellow metal slips, crucial support at Rs 50,750-50,600

Gold prices slipped in early trade in the domestic futures market on October 28 tracking trends of the international markets.

Gold prices eased in international markets after the dollar gained some strength against its peers as the hopes of US stimulus weakened after the US President said a deal is possible after the November election.

Trump on Tuesday said a coronavirus economic relief deal would likely come after the November 3 election, with the White House unable to bridge differences with fellow Republicans in the US Senate as well as congressional Democrats.

However, concerns over rising cases of coronavirus and lacklustre equity markets saved gold from witnessing a strong selloff.In the US and Europe, coronavirus cases have been rapidly rising and reports suggest that France is prepared for a fresh lockdown as new daily confirmed coronavirus cases hit the highest ever.Markets will look ahead to a televised address on Wednesday evening by […]

Gold Price Analysis: XAU/USD trades with modest losses, around $1900 amid stronger USD

A strong pickup in the USD demand exerted fresh pressure on the dollar-denominated commodity.

A selloff in the equity markets might lend some support to the safe-haven gold and help limit losses.

Bearish traders might wait for a sustained break below 100-day SMA before placing aggressive bets.

Gold edged lower during the first half of the European trading session and was last seen trading near daily lows, just above the $1900 level.The precious metal witnessed some fresh selling on Wednesday and reversed the previous day’s positive move, albeit remained well within a four-day-old trading range. A strong pickup in the US dollar demand was seen as a key factor exerting some pressure on the dollar-denominated commodity.The alarming pace of growth in new coronavirus cases and the imposition of fresh lockdown restrictions fueled concerns that the economic growth will weaken again.

( Kitco News ) – Gold and silver futures prices are solidly lower in early U.S. trading Wednesday. The precious metals are again being pressured by a stronger U.S. dollar index on this day. Much to the consternation of the bulls, the safe-haven metals can’t catch a bid at mid-week despite the keener risk aversion in the marketplace. Once again the shorter-term gold futures traders are paying more attention to the daily movements of the U.S. dollar index. December gold futures were last down $21.50 at $1,890.20 and December Comex silver was last down $0.62 at $23.97 an ounce.

Gold Price Analysis: XAU/USD ticks up to $1,910 and turns positive on the day

Gold bounces from $1,900 support area and returns to $1,910.

XAU/USD appreciates moderately as risk aversion eases.

Gold futures have found support right below the $1,900 area earlier today before inching up to $1,910, turning positive on daily charts. The precious metal lost ground, with the US dollar building up during the European session on Tuesday, to appreciate during the North American session with market sentiment improving moderately.

Gold is likely to win this election

Gold is likely to win this election

Trump and Biden debated for the second and last time in this campaign. So, who will win, and why gold is likely to be the biggest winner of them all?

President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden met for the second and the last debate before the elections. Thankfully, this time things were less chaotic and with far fewer interruptions and insults. Perhaps Trump has acknowledged that his aggressive behavior was a liability and decided to change his approach – especially since this was his final opportunity to alter the presidential campaign dynamics.

However, it might be too late now. According to both nation-wide and state-by-state polls, and market bets, Biden is still in a significant lead (as the chart below shows). Moreover, because of the postal voting, many votes are already locked in, as a record 47 million Americans have already cast their ballots. In addition to the above, […]

Gold and silver – don’t fear the wall of worry

Investors today seem to love jumping on whatever asset’s price is soaring. Tesla is going vertical? Buy Tesla. Gold is going vertical? Buy gold stocks. Already overvalued? No problem—it’s hot!

This sort of momentum-chasing is no “buy low, sell high” strategy. It can work if a greater fool comes along, but if one buys just as momentum falters, the losses are major.

All obvious, I know, but needed to set the stage.

Now, gold bugs enter the scene, stage right.We buy gold and silver whenever we can… but gold and silver stocks? Do we buy at the bottom in late 2015? After the failed rally in 2016? Or during the Crash of 2008?A few of us did—precious few. More were spooked out of the market. Many took huge losses in the process.I’ve seen evidence of this in the flow of reader correspondence over the years. Perhaps more telling is that subscriptions tend […]

Gold Futures: Room for extra gains near-term

In light of preliminary figures for Gold futures markets from CME Group, open interest reversed three pullbacks in a row and went up by around 4.7K contracts on Tuesday.

As gold surges, mining threatens one-fifth of Indigenous lands in the Amazon

As gold surges, mining threatens one-fifth of Indigenous lands in the Amazon

Shutterstock Curioso.Photography Close Authorship Aerial view of Amazon River. For decades, the Yaigojé Apaporis Indigenous People in Colombia’s lower Apaporis River Basin worked to get their traditional lands formally recognized by the government and secured from outside threats. Initially protected as the Yaigojé Apaporis Reserve, it also was declared an Indigenous territory in 1988.

But in 2007, Cosigo Resources, a Canadian mining company, requested from the government a gold mining concession within the Yaigojé Apaporis Reserve. The Yaigojé Apaporis were alarmed, but unlike other Indigenous groups around the world, they had some legal options. Laws in Colombia recognize Indigenous peoples’ right of consultation, although not consent. They also provide Indigenous communities with the right of first refusal, meaning they are first offered the mineral rights before the government can grant a mining concession to a third party. And while national laws allow mining on Indigenous lands, it is not permitted […]

Gold is doing it again

Gold is doing it again

Gold is trading really close to its 2011 all-time high. This is obviously a critical level for the future of gold prices.

Historically gold in US dollars often clears significant all-time highs only some time after significant currencies like the Euro and British pound.

This is mainly due to US dollar behaviour during times of significant risk aversion, like we’ve had this year and 2008, for example.

The following charts comparing gold in USD, in GBP and in Euro shows just that: Gold in USD only surpassed its significant March 2008 high about a year after gold in GBP and Euro did it. We have a similar setup where gold in GBP and Euro already hit their 2012 high around August 2019.Both GBP gold and Euro gold are sitting comfortably above their 2012 high. History strongly suggests that USD gold will follow and get comfortably above the 2012 high real soon.The US […]

Gold Bar Buying Rallies in China as ETF Investing ‘Plugs Covid Demand Gap’, Stocks Markets Slip

GOLD BARS traded in London ticked higher in quiet trade Tuesday, holding in a tight $10 range above $1900 per ounce as world stock markets extended yesterday’s US plunge as the Covid pandemic’s second wave worsened ahead of next week’s US presidential election.

US tech-stock index the Nasdaq struggled to rally from Monday’s 2.0% drop, led by German-based SAP (Nasdaq: SAP) plunging over 20% after it slashed 2020’s earnings outlook on falling sales amid the global virus crisis.

The EuroStoxx 600 index meantime slipped to trade 5.0% below the peak first reached in June, halving the spring’s Covid Crash.

Wholesale gold bars priced in Euros have added €100 per ounce since then, trading at €1611 in London on Tuesday.
