Nuklearenergie: Japan startet weiteren Atomreaktor - Uranpreis zieht an

Hierzu ein aktueller Beitrag von Fission Uranium's (T.FCU) CEO Dev Randhawa:

The Pace of Japanese Restarts

Just about every month we get positive news coming out of China regarding their nuclear sector – completed reactors coming online, new construction beginning. In the same way that we’ve become used to the world’s second-largest economy powering ahead with its reactor construction boom, we’ve also become used to Japan hemorrhaging money and pumping out fossil fuel emissions with so many of its reactors still offline.

It was therefore a pleasure to read, a few days ago, that Japan’s Kyushu Electric Power Co. had restarted a nuclear reactor in the Kagoshima prefecture after the governor, who is opposed to nuclear power, admitted to the prefectural assembly that he had no legal power to prevent the restart..

Dollar Surges, Yields Soar, Euro Tumbles To 13 Year Low As Markets React To Hawkish Fed

This morning the world awakes to a landscape in which markets are frantically rushing to catch up to a suddenly hawkish Fed which not only hiked for the second time in a decade but, as per yesterday's Fed statement and Yellen press conference, realized it has been behind the curve all along, and the result has been a spike in the dollar across virtually all currency pairs with the USDJPY surging above 118.40, coupled with a jump in bond yields around the globe as bond (the US 10 Year is trading at 2.64%, the highest since September 2014) as traders dump any hint of duration..

Warren Irwin: A Rip-Your-Face-Off Uranium Rally Begins!


There’s been a lot of action in uranium the last few months- especially post US elections. Trump and team are positive on uranium, and the US is the biggest consumer of uranium in the world. Uranium Participation Corp- a proxy for the spot price of uranium, began trading at a premium just two weeks ago, which typically happens when bullish sentiment enters the market. On December 6th, we put out a call that the stocks had bottomed. Spot uranium has since moved up for the first time in several months

The Weekly Dig - December 9, 2016
Iron Ore Prices Continue to Surge


The iron ore rally continued this week, with the price of 62% iron fines reaching passing the $80 per tonne level for the second time in 3 weeks after briefly passing the $80 level in mid-November. Rebar prices have also soared, rising from $340 per tonne in mid-October to $480 per tonne on Friday. The rally has been largely attributed to strong infrastructure investment in China, as well as the country’s slowdown in supply growth, following Beijing’s decision to close 100 – 150 million tonnes of steel capacity through the end of the decade to increase profitability of remaining producers and tackle pollution. 

The election victory by Donald Trump also provided further momentum after the President-elect highlighted increased infrastructure spend in the U.S. as a key component of his election campaign. Equity indices have also risen significantly, with both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 Index reaching historic highs; the Dow broke through the 19,500 level (after passing the 19,000 level on November 23). The surge in base metals was a little more subdued this week; copper, lead and zinc rose 1%, 2.3% and 1.6% respectively, while nickel was unchanged for the. 

Meanwhile, the price of gold fell below the $1,160 level on Friday for the first time since February, with investors preparing for the Federal Reserve’s rate decision next week where a rate rise is assumed to be almost a certainty. Silver (up 1%), platinum (down 1.6%) and palladium (down 1.3%) also fell, finishing at $16.82, $913 and $733 per ounce respectively. WTI Crude prices pulled back this week after its 10% last week, finishing at $51 per barrel, while the UxC weekly spot price for uranium rose slightly to finish at $18.44 per pound.

Richtungsweisendes Rebranding: Brazil Resources ändert Namen in GoldMining

Die ehemalige Junior-Firma Brazil Resources verkündet heute den Abschluss der Namensänderung in GoldMining. Im Hinblick auf die Lokalisierung der Hauptprojekte in Alaska, Kolumbien und Brasilien ist dieser Schritt mehr als sinnvoll und wurde schon länger erwartet.

Junior-Gold- und Kupferproduzent K92 Mining: Positive Analysten-Kommentare nach Projektbesichtigung

Hierzu ein aktueller Bericht auf BNN:

K92 Mining impresses on first analyst tour of Kainantu

It didn’t take long after the first analyst tour of K92 Mining’s Kainantu Project in Papua New Guinea for bullish comments to start rolling in on this gold-copper asset that K92 acquired from Barrick Gold in 2015.

Production Fast Track with Massive Exploration Potential was the title of the Nov. 22, 2016 report issued by Clarus Securities analyst Nana Sangmuah after he spent time onsite in mid-November, alongside of other industry professionals from GMP Securities, Haywood Securities, and Macquarie. The site tour was hosted by K92 chief operating officer and director, John Lewins, and included visits to the underground operations, the processing facilities and surface infrastructure, and the large exploration tenements hosting multiple high priority exploration targets.

Further highlighting the upside, this post site visit report from Clarus notes, “We estimate a production growth rate of 200 per cent for KNT from 2017 to 2019, ahead of growth rate of peers averaging 21 per cent. Despite its compelling growth rate, KNT trades at a 0.3x P/NAV multiple, a ~60 per cent discount to junior producer peers trading at an average of 0.8x NAV.”

Haywood analyst Mick Carew commented in his initial post site visit report published on Nov. 23, 2016, “While the restart of mining at Irumafimpa represents a clear milestone for the Company, we see the medium- and long-term potential of the Kainantu project as particularly significant. With a recent PEA for the adjacent Kora deposit delivering a robust pre-tax NPV (five per cent) of US $415 million (US $386 million using an eight per cent discount rate) and an IRR of 113 per cent based on a 400,000 tpa operation, the current resource base at both Kora and Eutompi could be expanded.”

The past two months have been particularly busy for K92, with the company having commenced production from the Irumafimpa Deposit and then following it up by announcing the results of a PEA at the Kora Deposit, which is being targeted as the second deposit coming online. These two big fundamental achievements were recently described as the definition of a true “double-header," given that they concurrently occurred. With the restart commenced and given the company is providing clear guidance as to how it plans to dramatically grow production, K92’s recent share price represents not only a big discount to their peer group in terms of where the company is valued as a ratio of net asset value, but this is also combined with a much faster rate of production growth targeted.

K92 president Bryan Slusarchuk states, “The technical team onsite has done a great job getting production started on schedule and concurrently completing the PEA, which gives investors a clear growth path. The current discount to peer group valuation ought to appeal to deep value investors, while the growth rate targeted should appeal to investors seeking growth. With the project in great shape on the ground, we are now looking to expand the company’s profile as to make sure more and more investors follow us as the business plan is executed. While the project hosts high grade gold, many people are also starting to realize that Kora has a very strong copper component to it and that is also attracting attention given copper’s recent move.”

K92 is currently in the process of ramping up production towards steady state and also has two drill rigs onsite, one conducting grade control drilling, and one geared towards expansion and exploration drilling. The company has a strong group of institutional shareholders and trades in Canada under the symbol KNT (TSX.V), in the U.S. (KNTNF) and in Germany (92K).

Großer Meilenstein: Continental Gold erhält die Umweltgenehmigung für das Weltklasse Buriticá Goldprojekt in Kolumbien

Nach einer jahrelangen Hängepartie, vielen Unsicherheiten und einer sehr großer Überzeugungsarbeit ist Continental Gold (TSX:CNL) am Ziel angekommen. Die kanadische Junior-Firma erhält die entscheidende Umweltgenehmigung für das Weltklasse Flaggschiffprojekt Buritcá. Ein großer Meilenstein für Continental - und die gesamte Goldminenbranche in Kolumbien.

Continental Gold Receives Environmental Permit for the Buritica Project

Toronto, Ontario, November 30, 2016 – Continental Gold Inc. (TSX:CNL; OTCQX:CGOOF) (“Continental Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the receipt of the environmental permit for the Company’s Buriticá project.

Resolution No. 01443, dated November 30, 2016, was issued by ANLA, the Colombian National Authority of Environmental Licenses, approving the Company’s application for an amendment to the Environmental License for the Buriticá project located in Antioquia, Colombia. The resolution authorizes Continental Gold to expand its current small-scale operating mine to a fully integrated mining and milling operation, as outlined in the Company’s Feasibility Study dated March 29, 2016. Specifically, the resolution allows Continental Gold to operate and construct all mining and milling-related facilities, including a processing plant up to a maximum of 3,200 tonnes per day. In addition, the resolution allows the Company to mine alluvial material required for construction during the pre-production and production phases of operations and requires the Company to follow strict and environmentally-conscious best practice protocols for the operation and closure of the mine.

Ari Sussman, CEO of Continental Gold, commented: “The completion of permitting for the Buriticá project is a strong testament to Colombia’s willingness to embrace responsible mining and its desire to reinvigorate the gold industry for a country that holds the title as the most prolific gold producer in Latin American history. We would like to thank the local communities, the Government of Antioquia and the National Colombian Government for their confidence in Continental Gold’s ability to deliver a robust environmentally-responsible mine that will yield significant benefits for all stakeholders.”

The modification of the Environmental License, granted by ANLA, reflects Continental Gold’s commitment to building a modern mine with strong operational, environmental and social standards, while generating well-being and development for the communities of Buriticá, the region of Western Antioquia and Colombia,” stated Mateo Restrepo, President of Continental Gold..

Hohe Investoren-Nachfrage: Neues Goldminen-ETF startet in Hongkong

Letzten Freitag wurde in der asiatischen Finanzmetropole ein neues Goldminen-ETF gestartet, das die hohe Nachfrage nach Goldminen-Investmentprodukten stillen soll:


A gold miners exchange traded fund (ETF), a first in Hong Kong, was launched on the Hong Kong Exchange & Clearing (HKEX) today, Friday November 18.

The ETF – known as “XIE Shares FTSE Gold Miners ETF” – invests in a basket of physical equities and replicates the FTSE Gold Mines Net Tax Index, which currently represents 35 global gold mining companies that produce a minimum of 300,000 ounces of gold per year. Some of the countries represented in the ETF include Canada, US, South Africa, and Australia.

The Gold Miners ETF meets increasing investor demand for gold investing in light of a loss in confidence in paper money, caused by the increasing debt of developed countries, said Enhanced Investment Products (EIP), whose ETF business XIE Shares launched the ETF.

This debt, and recent political events such as Brexit and the US elections, point to more volatility and uncertainty in financial markets, and gold provides a hedge against inflation or deflation and is a store of value, EIP said in its statement.

“This new product…will enable retail and institutional investors to capitalise on gold price fluctuations through the ownership of gold mining stocks, which tend to go up and down more than the price of gold, given the size of their gold deposits relative to their market capitalisation. This year, gold mining stocks are outperforming physical gold by approximately 50%,” EIP’s ceo Tobias Bland said.

EIP is a Hong Kong-based investment management firm which was established in 2002. Brokerage and investment group CLSA acquired 49% of the XIE Shares Hong Kong ETF platform in 2014.

Net inflows into exchange traded products (ETP) have helped drive a sharp increase in gold investment demand this year, according to the World Gold Council (WGC).

Total gold investment demand rose 44% year-on-year to 336 tonnes in the third quarter of this year, with ETP inflows accounting for 146 tonnes as investors continued to build up their strategic allocations to gold, the WGC said in its report in November.

The spot gold price has risen around 30% since the beginning of this year to reach as high as $1,375.25 in July. The price has since pared to $1,205 per oz recently on Friday, but is still higher than the low of $1,062.40 reached at the beginning of this year. - See more at:

Rio Tinto (RIO) zieht sich vom gigantischen Simandou Eisenerz-Projekt in Guinea zurück. Damit ist der Weg für den chinesischen Branchenriesen Chinalco frei, das größte Minenprojekt der Welt zu übernehmen:

Chinese buy world's largest mining project

World number two miner Rio Tinto is exiting the world's largest mining project, by selling its stake in Guinea's Simandou iron ore to partner Chinalco, potentially opening up a new path to development for the $20 billion project.

According to a statement by Melbourne-based Rio the deal is worth between $1.1 billion and $1.3 billion payable when Simandou starts commercial production and based on output. Rio says a final agreement could be inked within six months. In February this year Rio wrote down the value of Simandou by $1.1 billion, before deciding to shelve the project.

Rio owns 46.6% of Simandou south; Chinalco's stake is 41.3% and the Guinea government holds 7.5%. Earlier this month the World Bank's financing arm – the International Finance Corporation – sold its its 4.6% interest.With complete control, Beijing-based Chinalco may revive the stalled project with the backing of the Chinese government..

Gold Price Volatility Continues as Rate Decision Looms

As the U.S. elections draws nearer and prospects intensify, the price of gold has experienced significant volatility over the last few weeks. The first week of October saw the yellow metal push through the $1,300 per ounce level, briefly testing the $1,250 per ounce level (falling to $1,247 per ounce during intra-day trading on October 14). This last week has seen the gold price fluctuate between $1,260 and $1,275 per ounce, hitting the $1,284 per ounce level on Friday before settling at $1,276 per ounce at close. 

While the U.S. election campaign remains controversial, particularly in regards to Donald Trump’s candidacy, the email scandal continues to haunt Hillary Clinton; on Friday news broke that the FBI would investigate additional emails that had surfaced relating to Hillary Clinton's use of a private email system that allegedly contained classified information. In turn, any event that potentially swings the electorate in Trump’s favour continues to be positive for gold as the republican candidate’s controversial policies and personal life divides the nation.  

Meanwhile, the other precious metals varied in terms of performance for the week; platinum rose 4.5% to finish at $981 per ounce while palladium retreated 0.6%, while silver rose only slightly to finish at $620 and $17.77 per ounce respectively. Base metals prices jumped this week, with Copper and nickel prices finishing 4.5% and 4.6% higher to finish at $2.19 and $4.72 per pound respectively, while lead and zinc also gained ground. After rising above the $50 per barrel mark in recent weeks, WTI crude fell back to $49 per barrel this week, while the UxC weekly spot price for uranium remained below the $20 per pound level to finish at $19.59 per pound.
