John Rubino over at Dollar Collapse – Mon 17 Aug, 2020

With Buffet in gold does it change the outlook from other investors?

John Rubino joins me for a discussion on the new investors that could dive into the gold market after Warren Buffet started buying Barrick. This also ties into the rising inflation narrative.

    Gold at 1993.50 US, could be back over $2000 tomorrow, so much for the price staying lower longer than people can imagine. If you want lumber for decks and fences those prices are way up too. Covid shutdowns and bored homeowners getting the honeydew list have cleaned out the lumberyards. DT

    I look at Precious metals slightly differently…….
    Consider the average price of gold/silver over the last year, versus the current price.
    Many larger companies have been MAKING A PROFIT over the last year. e.g. Barrick had a P/E ratio on past year earnings of about 38.
    What do you think its P/E will be next year if the price of gold/silver remain the same ?
    There are many gold/silver/metals companies with P/E ratios, based on previous 12 month earnings, between 15 and 30.

    A partial list in order of increasing P/E ratio would be for majors:
    Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd
    Pretium Res Inc
    Caledonia Mining Cp
    B2Gold Corp
    Great Panther Mining Ltd
    Kinross Gold Corp
    Eldorado Gold Corp
    Silver Standard Resources Inc

    Yep gold has started the week better than I anticipated. Some of that can be attributed to the Buffett news as people will flock enmasse if they view it as a positive. I still wouldnt rule out the chance that this is a relief rally from last weeks cascade fall however if the next 24 hours sees continued robust follow through action then the chances of another wave down decreases.

      by @accesswire on 18 Aug 2020

      “Vern Baker, CEO of Jaguar Mining stated; “While our Pilar mine has steadily increased production to record levels, the Pilar Geology team has spent the last 18 months focused on increasing our understanding of the complex structures that incorporate our orebodies. Through the utilization of good basic geologic efforts – mapping, sampling, drilling, and modeling – the team has once again replaced and added to our reserves and have demonstrated that the grade our orebodies can deliver is higher than prior reserves indicated. We continue to have a solid resource base under our Reserves, and the work has identified some significant opportunities to add ounces in structures higher up in our mine. Pilar has now added drilling capacity to drive reserves down plunge and to delineate new opportunities. With this additional effort, we look forward to expanding our resource base and reserve inventory and to grow our operation through successful drilling and solid mining practices.”

            Yeah, USAS is on sale today because investors are mad about the capital raise and that their mines didn’t produce as planned recently, but they had a union blockade in Mexico, and few set backs ramping things up at Relief Canyon. Galena is also still mid-optimization. However, in a few more quarters with these higher metals prices and improved production metrics Americas Silver will be printing money, so investors just need to be patient. I still believe it will surprise the hell out of many analysts and investors when they get their ducks in a row…

            Wolfster – I agree, but with USAS their assets are fantastic, and I think they’ve likely worked out most of the kinks at this time, and the Covid-19 shutdowns and union blockade just kicked them while they were down the last few months. They’ll have their day in the sun soon enough, but they do need to string along a few quarters of operational success where they hit their guidance. I love a good turn around story, and they are close to having fully turned their ship around and should have more smooth sailing in front of them now.

            I bought QMX for their prospective exploration with so many well-endowed geological neighbors, (like Monarch Gold) in Val d’Or Quebec, Canada, on the Abitibi Greenstone Belt. Today they really hit pay-dirt.

            As for Metallic Minerals and Minera Alamos I own them both and like them both for much different reasons. MMG has the high grade Silver exploration next to Alexco, and Minera Alamos have a pipeline of 3 Gold development projects and the smaller one moving into production by the beginning of next year.

      Great follow-up thoughts from Doug Ramshaw, President of (MAI) Minera Alamos.

      His alias is @TheGalvanizer over at

      @TheGalvanizer – “I sacrificed a little on discount to ensure no warrants. Would I have liked to do it higher absolutely. Interestingly the 20 day vwap is aeound 64c and the vwap since we announced CdO (that clearly went over well leading to this offer from NBF) is around 69c. Looking to largely place with new institutional money. My goal is now to ensure anyone who happened to buy their first stock higher are in the money quickly again.”

      “Effectively we have doubled our treasury and added a third project for about 5% dilution.”

      “That was a hill i would have died on (we have witnessed the benefit of being warrant free since last summer) – no warrants was key. I mean there will be about 500k broker warrants but that’s it.”

      David says:

      Added some yesterday. I was reading Eric Coffin’s comments and he is estimating production first of year. It sounds like his expectations are similar to the performance of Pure Gold. Follow the gold price and move upward as production nears. Pure gold hung around for quite awhile under 50 cents US then moved into a steady up move in a relatively short period.

      • On August 18, 2020 at 9:43 am,
        Excelsior says:

        Yes, it is the “Golden Runway” of gains, as Lobo Tigre dubbed that period when a Developer wakes up and makes the run upward toward first pour. He analyzed over 90 miners that went into to production and found that the vast majority of them surged over a double or triple once they kicked off the Golden Runway period.

        • On August 18, 2020 at 9:46 am,
          Excelsior says:

          As a refresher, the Golden Runway phase doesn’t kick off until after the boring sideways trading of the “Orphan Phase” where a developer gets stuck in the muck with metallurgical testing, permitting, and infill drilling. That was the period that Pure Gold was in for about 2-3 years, but they clearly have rocketed higher since then, and rightly so.

          I’ve been building positions in Gold & Silver developers coming to the end of their Orphan Stage and moving into their Golden Runways for these precise reasons.

    • On August 18, 2020 at 8:54 am,

      Yeah, Doug definitely understands that, and MAI was in the penalty box for a while until they finally cleared out their warrant overhang, and have been climbing steadily ever since. Granted, they’ve put out a string of positive news the last 2 years, and are an incredibly well run company with loyal stakeholders, so that also helps.

      I’m hoping more mining companies will take notice of their approach to future capital raises without the warrants, and on growing organically from small initial production, that leads to the larger production as the first pit pays for the next one out of revenues. Minera Alamos is a model Gold developer and near-term producer.

      I’m done a pretty good job of trying to buy them all. Haha!

      Just kidding, I have a list of companies I want to buy that grows daily. 🙂

    I bought back some Brixton today so that I now have 50% of the initial position again.

    BBB back-filled the gap higher today, so it seems like a good place to speculate and I’m buying it back for less than I trimmed it at, so we’ll see how it goes. I expect them to be putting out some more exploration news over the next few weeks, so we’ll see how it goes.

      Speaking of B words, I bought back Bayhorse again for fourth or so time. My thinking was they would be motivated to stir things up some since they were waiting for the price of silver to go up. I am in the red again. Does Jamie Dimon’s exwife own Bayhorse?

        Yeah I have some Bayhorse as well, but I trimmed some back last week on the 10th since it had moved up higher and I was trimming the fat.

      I think the take down on the miners was orchestrated. First some bogus paper was dropped taking gold and silver down running stops. Then I heard there were some margin calls that could cause some sales also. Tuesday is becoming attack day.
