Top Mining Stocks To Buy Or Sell
Mining stocks have been rather volatile in the last 10 months or so. This is all the cause and effect of the pandemic on this market sector. The pandemic tanked plenty of stocks including mining stocks back in March 2020 when the stock market crashed. But among those to make a very quick recovery was mining stocks. The price of gold and silver skyrocketed amid a falling economy. This was even able to push the price of gold to new record levels of above $2,000 per ounce on average. Silver also reached new highs in the market. Then when industrial demand returned later in 2020, silver was able to reach even higher. But now we have arrived in 2021, so what type of events are impacting the price of metal assets and mining stocks, you may ask. At the moment, it seems like the price of gold is stuck around the $1,860 per ounce region. By no means is this a bad thing though.
Gold has been able to hold above $1,800 for a couple reasons. The first of which, is the skyrocketing COVID numbers that are not going away at the moment. The vaccine is not being distributed enough to stop the infection yet. This is still hurting the economy as many places are in full lockdown. So adversely mining stocks benefit. BMO Capital Markets thinks that the 2021 average price for gold will be $1,894. If so, this would be the highest average price in the yellow metal’s history. But this is all speculation and predictions, nothing is for sure in this volatile market. For now, there are many great mining stocks to look at. So let’s see four of these metal assets that are proving positive performance in the market in February.

These results are continuing to pass modeled projects, while having a covid free year as well. These assay results for 67 holes have been received, and are showing higher drilled grade thickness. The CEO of Barrick Gold, who owns the other half of Donlin, said this, “Assay results received to date are encouraging and support the drill program to better understand the Donlin Gold orebody and de-risk the project development.” The President and CEO of NovaGold, Greg Lang, added, “In an era characterized by declining gold grades, it is truly rewarding to continue to be able to report drill results that support the potential of Donlin Gold, already an impressive asset in terms of size and grade for a large-scale open-pit gold project.” That is the latest that has come from NovaGold and associates.
