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


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. 


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)



...And the GDX to-UGL ratio (5 years)


At yesterday's Low of 76%, it was very close to the bottom of the Normal 75%-87.5% range

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.

Higher costs ahead?

Newmont had a solid second quarter but grouses about higher costs ahead. St. James Gold stumbled on word that it is sending crews to its grassroots gold properties in Newfoundland while getting set to drill Florin, in Yukon. Loncor Gold has raised cash for Imbo in the DRC.
