Gold companies must replenish reserves
Each year, more ounces of gold are mined than explored. New resources must be found to prevent production volumes from going down. According to calculations, the top 20 producers have spent almost $70 billion on acquisitions and exploration efforts over the last 10 years. Almost three quarters of this went into acquisitions, accounting for 53 percent of the growth in reserves.
Interestingly, reserves that are purchased are initially significantly more expensive than reserves that are added through exploration. This puts many juniors on the list of coveted acquisition projects. Gold companies are particularly popular at present. Just look at the development of the gold price.
As investors should know, the purchasing power of gold is enduring, even if the money press continues to print money without end. Gold and silver are a kind of insurance against the decline in value of money. This can also be seen in the worldwide Gold-ETF stocks, which are at a record high. Institutional investors are probably mainly responsible for this. Gold has not only become more and more interesting from the point of view of professional investors in the past years, but also private investors look more and more to the world of gold companies and gold shares.
Well-positioned companies with special projects include Bluestone Resources and Aurania Resources.
Bluestone Resources is working on its Cerro Blanco gold project in Guatemala to bring it to production. Approximately 900,000 ounces of gold are expected to be mined. And this at low cost.
Aurania Resources is pursuing several projects, with The Lost Cities-Cutucu project in Ecuador's Andes mountains with gold, silver and copper deposits combining historical research and state-of-the-art mining techniques in a unique way.
