Three Australian Miners Richard Karn Believes Are Positioned for Success
Source: Special to The Gold Report  (6/1/15)
Despite the collapse in broad commodity prices, numerous specialty metal prices have held or even gone up in the last few years: companies with the potential to produce these metals couldn't attract capital, and the tightness today is now likely to become shortages tomorrow, says Richard Karn, managing editor of The Emerging Trends Report. When institutional capital eventually comes back to the sector, money will flow first to companies in or nearing production now. In this interview with The Gold Report, Karn highlights three such companies in Australia producing graphite, tungsten, rare earth elements, hafnium and other specialty metals. More >

Thibaut Lepouttre, editor of Belgium-based Caesars Report, says the gold price is range bound and if you want to be in gold equities you have to find "lean and mean" precious metals producers that are generating cash flow or have a clear path to cash flow at $1,200 per ounce gold. Lepouttre tells investors to look for projects with economic studies demonstrating high internal rates of return, as those projects are more likely to attract financing and command a market premium.

A weak national currency is bad news for importers and consumers but good news for exporters, such as miners. According to Australian analyst Duncan Hughes of GMP Securities, the 24% drop in the value of the Aussie dollar versus the U.S. dollar means that local gold producers can produce big margins even at US$1,200/ounce gold. In this interview with The Gold Report, Hughes names two Aussie gold miners with great cash flow, as well as several with projects in Africa, and he highlights nickel and copper companies that can expect to flourish when prices rise, as he expects they will.

She joined BMO Managing Director and Co-Head of Global Mining Research Tony Robson in a candid discussion with The Mining Report about the near- and medium-term prognosis for mining markets, as well as the outlook for copper, nickel and iron.

During the period when Parti Québécois controlled Québec, the province's attractiveness as a mining jurisdiction fell from #1 to #21 in the Frasier Institute's Annual Survey of Mining Companies. But when Philippe Couillard's Liberal government won a majority in April 2014, the market got the message. Eric Lemieux, consulting technical adviser to Toronto-based Peartree Securities, says that the Osisko Mining bidding war showed that companies were willing to pay a premium for Québec-based assets. Since then other takeovers have happened. In this interview with The Gold Report, Lemieux discusses some promising projects in Québec and other stable jurisdictions. More >
