Gold stocks can be an interesting sector to keep your eye on. The gold industry consists of many companies producing and mining for gold. Today the focus is on a few gold stocks that have actually made new 52-week highs this week as opposed to recovering from a pullback that many other gold stocks saw.
First, is mineral exploration company International Tower Hill Mines Ltd. (THM Stock Report). It holds and has rights to own interests in the Livengood gold project area. This area is over 48,000 acres of land. This Vancouver based gold stock has seen a rise in its stock price recently.
This rise in stock price is partially due to Tower Hill announcing planes to advance the Livengood Gold Project. They believe that the strength in the price of gold due to the stimulus from banks and governments is enough to support the continuation of their gold assets at Livengood Gold. The CEO of International Tower Hill said, “Over the last several years, we have quietly remained laser-focused on improving our geological and metallurgical understanding of the Livengood Gold deposit, which reported a 11.5 million ounce gold resource in our 2017 NI 43-101.”
Its plans are to continue to find more gold while the price of gold is higher right now. Chairman Marcelo Kim said, “Since 2016 we have conserved our cash to maximize optionality for ITH shareholders, and we are well positioned to embark on a new phase for the Livengood project as a result of the favorable macro-economic backdrop for gold.”
