Investors are flocking to gold, silver and other precious metals in record numbers. One firm, BullionVault, reports that in the past six months demand to invest in gold, silver and platinum has reached almost half a billion dollars. “Net of client selling, investing in physical bullion on our peer-to-peer platform — first opened in 2005 — has now topped $442 million since the pandemic reached Europe and North America in March,” the company said. Mining companies around the world are benefitting from this rising investment tide, as they work to strengthen their positions, increase their holdings and ultimately provide more raw material for investors looking for more stable options. One of those companies, GoldHaven Resources Corp. (CSE: GOH) (OTCQB: ATUMF) (GOH Profile), has secured options on some of the most promising properties in the highly productive Maricunga Gold Belt of Chile, including one yielding rock chip sample assays of 764 grams per tonne gold and 719 grams per tonne silver. GoldHaven plans to commence a drilling program in January 2021. Yamana Gold Inc. (NYSE: AUY) is expanding its footprint with its recent acquisition of Monarch properties in the Abitibi Region in Quebec, Canada. Other companies are releasing impressive reports regarding their current operations. Fosterville South Exploration Ltd (OTC: FSXLF) has provided high-grade assays of up to 152 grams per tonne gold in rock chip samples at the Star of the Glen target on the Golden Mountain project. Kinross Gold Corporation (NYSE: KGC) (TSX: K) announced the results of a prefeasibility study on its Lobo-Marte project, which indicates the potential of a cornerstone asset with attractive all-in sustaining costs to enhance the company’s long-term production profile. Gold Fields Limited American Depositary Shares (NYSE: GFI) is considering a number of automation projects at its South Deep gold mine in Gauteng, southwest of Johannesburg.
