Mining Review Sunday Update 20th February 2022
Gold is the story of the week, or rather the 2% increase in price to around $1,900, sadly due to political tensions that look set to escalate into violence in the Ukraine.
Markets are rattled by the onset of war, and we can only hope that common sense will prevail, but it looks unlikely at this stage.
The big news of the week, apart from gold, is that the Chinese government are to try and control commodity prices to avoid speculation, and profiteering. Coking coal and iron ore have both fallen since the announcement.
Nickel has had a steady rise for the last year or so, but new exports from Indonesia may help to alleviate the shortages causing the price to rise.
Turning to the mining sector, Karora Resources is enjoying a strong rise on recent production results, and the high gold price of course. Cornish Metals continues to deliver newsflow for their copper / tin project in the UK.
Colonial Coal are holding above C$2 after the recent rise, due to the high price of metallurgical (coking) coal. Takeover rumours persist here.
Minera Alamos Director Doug Ramshaw purchased 50,000 shares of the company’s stock on Thursday, February 17th. The shares were purchased at an average cost of C$0.53 Doug now owns 6,381,200 shares of the company’s stock, valued at C$3,382,036.
Previously Doug had purchased 75,000 shares between the 11th and 14th of February. I always see it as positive when a director is buying shares in his own company, and these were sizeable amounts, around C$60,000 in value.
Stocks on out watchlist in the news this week
