Gold means a piece of freedom
On the Internet, many citizens see a means to obtain information without state censorship. But it's not that simple. Governments around the world repeatedly attack this love of freedom. In 2016, for example, a total of 75 Internet sites were shut down by governments worldwide. By 2017, there were 108 cases. And last year the number of Internet sites shut down even reached 188. Especially in Asia such interventions were frequent.
Certainly, many cases are justified because they transport content that should not be public. But on the other hand, state action can and will always lead to arbitrariness. Especially in countries with autocratic features in politics, the danger is great.
In Western countries, such as the eurozone, interventions are aimed less at information services than at the financing of the state and thus the financial repression of its citizens. For example, the 10-year German government bond is again yielding negative interest rates. Saving is therefore no longer worthwhile, because the purchasing power of the savings becomes less and less valuable. Citizens can at least protect themselves from this by investing in gold. Gold is showing a little more strength again recently. In addition to investments in physical gold such as the most common gold coins and small bars from recognised mints, somewhat more risk-averse investors can also include the shares of gold companies in the short-list.
Two examples of promising gold companies are Treasury Metals and Caledonia Mining. Caledonia already produces the yellow precious metal at the Blanket mine in Zimbabwe and is profitable, which also leads to dividend payments. "We are already working highly profitably at our current production level," said Caledonia CEO Steve Curtis in a recent interview. Cash flow would continue to rise if production rose to 80,000 ounces in 2022, as the investment plan for the Blanket Mine foresees, Curtis continued.
Although Treasury Metals does not yet produce, it is in the process of obtaining approval for its 100 percent owned Goliath gold project in Ontario. The best infrastructure conditions and gold mineralization near the surface should ensure the progress of Treasury Metals.
