Source: Brian Sylvester of The Gold Report  (1/28/15)
Mining investors love to talk M&A. The speculation. The buzz. Goldcorp started tongues wagging recently when it made a CA$526 million offer for Probe Mines. Brien Lundin, publisher of Gold Newsletter, believes that deal could start the ball rolling on further M&A. He predicts that as gold flows west to east at an unprecedented rate, the gold price will ultimately come under pressure and carry equity prices dramatically higher in either 2015 or 2016. In this interview with The Gold Report, he suggests that prices have never been lower on some of the most likely names in the M&A game. More >
