On gold:

"Preliminary Q2 gold production was lower than Q1, with planned maintenance shutdowns at Nevada Gold Mines' processing facilities further impacted by a mechanical mill failure at Carlin's Goldstrike roaster, as well as planned maintenance at Pueblo Viejo."

"As previously guided, Barrick's gold production in the second half of 2021 is forecast to be higher than the first half."

On copper:

"Preliminary Q2 copper production was slightly higher than Q1."

"Copper sales in Q2 were in line with production, but 15% lower than the previous quarter, as Lumwana sold a higher portion of its stockpiled concentrate in Q1 2021."

"We continue to expect the Company's copper production in the second half of 2021 to be stronger than the first half, mainly driven by higher grades from Lumwa

 07/15/21

July 15 (Reuters) - Barrick Gold Corp (GOLD), said on Thursday second-quarter gold production fell 5.4% from the previous quarter, dented by planned maintenance shutdowns at Nevada Gold Mine in the United States and Pueblo Viejo in the Dominican Republic.

Total preliminary gold production fell to 1.04 million ounces in the three months ended June 30, from 1.10 million ounces in the first quarter, the company said.

Analysts on average had expected production of 1.15 million ounces, according to Refinitiv IBES.

As I put this thread together, I saw how weak many Gold shares are now. 

Ms30kiy.png

Look at GDX-toGLD ratio, and GDXJ-toGLD, now at 27%, despite the Gold price being strong

(David Hunter thinks that GDXJ could hit $100 this year, and GLD $234- ie Gold $2500/ 10.7 - that would be a 42.7% ratio. 

His target for GDX to Gold is: 60/234= 25.6%, up from the current 17%. )

In fact, I should be looking at the comparison of Gold shares to UGL, the 2x Gold etf, because Gold shares are a leveraged play on Gold

Here's the GDX to-UGL ratio (5 years)

Barrick will release its Q2 2021 results on Monday, August 9.

Barrick resumes operations at Hemlo after fatality

TORONTO - Miner Barrick Gold has resumed surface operations including processing at its Hemlo mine in Canada's Ontario province after a worker fatality last week suspended mining, a company spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

+++

According to the CEO of Barrick Gold, Mark Bristow, due to an aggressive near-mine exploration program, Kibali was continuing to replace its reserves faster than it was mining them, and now has a resource base that is approaching the 2013 levels when the mine first went into production. The company also said that significant exploration successes could extend the Tongon gold mine"s life. Bristow said 10 years after it went into production Tongon could get a new lease on life thanks to promising results from near-mine exploration campaigns designed to replace the mine"s depleted reserves.

Barrick Gold secures exploration licenses in Egypt

miningtruck3.jpg(Kitco News) - Barrick Gold (NYSE:GOLD)(TSX:ABX) announced today that it has been awarded four exploration licenses for 19 blocks following its participation in the International Bid-Round (1)/2020 led by the Egyptian government for exploration of gold and associated minerals in the highly prospective Eastern Desert region of the country.

According to the company’s statement, Eastern Desert is part of the Proterozoic Arabian Nubian Shield, which hosts the giant Sukari deposit and numerous other gold occurrences, but which has seen no recent systematic exploration.

Barrick said it intends to work closely with the Egyptian Mineral Resource Authority and other participating exploration and mining companies, over the period of a year, to finalize the terms of Egypt’s exploitation license agreement which will apply to the industry.

Barrick on target to meet 2021 guidance, reports Q2 beat on higher gold price

Kitco News |

(Kitco News) - Higher gold prices helped the world's second-largest producer beat earning expectations as production fell in the second quarter.

Barrick CEO: Gold’s real rally hasn't even come yet; Mark Bristow on Q2 results, forward guidance

 

Mark Bristow, CEO of Barrick Gold, discusses with David Lin, anchor for Kitco News, why our current environment may be similar to that of 2008's, when gold initially lagged and then spiked three years later.

"I always take people back to 2008, 2009, the Global Financial Crisis, all those troubles. The market didn't really react to that because it was desperate to see us come out of it before we really appreciate the damage that it had made. It was only 2011 when we saw everyone react to the damage, and of course the gold price went up and it stayed up until past 2013," Bristow said. "I think we're finding the same thing now."

Monday, Barrick Gold released second quarter financial results and reported revenues of $2.89 billion in the second quarter of 2021, down from $3.055 billion in the same period a year ago.

Of the $2.89 billion in total sales in Q2, $2.5 billion was gold sales, while $234 million was copper, or roughly 10% of sales.

Bristow said that the company plans to expand copper production to about 20% of the business to meet the demands of the electrification of the economy and as gold deposits get bigger in scale.

Barrick Gold Valuation Too Low To Ignore

Apr. 05, 2021    Barrick Gold Corporation (GOLD). AEM, AU, AULGF...77 Comments

Summary

  • Barrick's weak stock quote the last six months has opened a strong buy opportunity for intelligent investors.
  • Valuations on free cash flow and operating income are absurdly low vs. a U.S. stock market near-record overvaluations.
  • Negative real interest rate spreads are widening, a huge positive for gold assets going forward.

I have not owned Barrick Gold (NYSE:GOLD) in many years, until last week. The main reason I have avoided shares in one of the leading gold miners in the world is other producers have looked more appealing. Alternative mining choices have been less expensive in valuation, with better growth prospects and stronger balance sheets. Well, the company has made substantial progress cutting costs and paying down debt the last two years, while the stock quote has underperformed, especially in late 2020 and early 2021. The fact Barrick also extracts around 450 million pounds of copper annually ($1.8 billion in revenues at current spot commodity pricing and 15% of total sales) is another positive argument for ownership that may not be properly discounted by Wall Street. The end result of all the moving parts is Barrick has morphed into a top "value" play in the mining sector into April.

Over the last year, I have mentioned Newmont Mining (NEM) here, Pan American Silver (PAAS) here and AngloGold Ashanti (AU) here as being my favorite majors in the gold/silver mining arena. Today, I am adding Barrick to this elite mix of names for investors. Specifically, an industry low price to free cash flow ($3.4 billion in 2020 FCF) and operating earnings setup is screaming the company should now be viewed as a "must own" in the sector.

Cutting Costs and Slashing Debt

The latest Q4 earnings report highlighted improving trends in cash costs, all-in-sustaining-costs (AISCs), declining debt totals ($2.2 billion in net debt reduction for 2020 alone), and relatively steady management expectations for even better numbers between 2021 and 2024.
