The history of gold
As the ultimate form of money, precious metal still serves today as a store of value for accumulated wealth. The reason for the long history lies in the trustworthiness of gold. Since gold was never found in abundance, it was a treasure from the beginning. In ancient times because of its special properties used as jewelry and for religious things, gold has lost none of its luster, is still durable and stable. It is particularly pleasing to investors due to its appreciation in value.
One of the first gold mines near today's Saudi Arabia was probably the Cradle of Gold. Gold was already mined there in the 10th century BC. About 300 years later (in today's Turkey) coins were minted from gold and silver called Elektrum. The gold coin technology was taken up by the Persians and Greeks, as well as by the Roman Empire.
Around the year 1800, the gold rush came into being in the USA, Australia and South Africa. The world's largest and most important gold discoveries took place in South Africa in the Witwatersrand area. Sibanye-Stillwater, for example, is represented there today.
Sibanye-Stillwater - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=299167 - is one of the world's largest gold producers (on a gold equivalent basis) and is also the number one producer of platinum and palladium. The projects are located in South Africa and North America.
Today an investment in gold and gold stocks is simply a part of it. Alan Greenspan, who is probably the most well-known, once said: "Without the gold standard there is no way to protect savings from seizure by inflation. There is no secure value storage. “
A gold company that pleases would also be TerraX Minerals - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=299172 - with its Yellowknife City gold project in the Northwest Territories and covers 783 square kilometers. The summer drilling program is running, the infrastructure is excellent and the project is located on the Yellowknife Greenstone Belt.
