Mining stocks are in focus; here is 3 to watch right now
The sector for mining stocks has been growing significantly in the last year. This started when the pandemic took over the world back in 2020. This caused mining stocks to explode in value as material prices skyrocketed. Gold and silver among other metals achieved new record highs in the market. Often investors will turn to mineral resources when the dollar is slipping.
There are plenty of mining stocks that are increasing in value all the time. There are other types of companies in this sector too, not just gold and silver related. Lithium stocks have been very bullish in the market lately. This momentum is powered by the growth of electric vehicles. EVs use lithium-ion batteries, and production numbers are going up consistently every year. Copper stocks have increased for similar reasons, as hundreds of pounds of the metal are used in most electric vehicles.
When investing in mining stocks, it is helpful to look at the most recent updates that have come from a company. World news is also very important when investing in mining stocks. This has been clear in the last year when it comes to the sector. Some may think there isn’t room to invest in mining stocks or that it is too late, but many still have a lot of potential right now. Let’s take a look at three mining stocks that have market potential right now.

July 14th was a great day for Great Panther Mining, as it reported the resumption of mining in Tucano’s UCS pit and reported its second-quarter production results for 2021. President and CEO Robert Henderson stated, “I am pleased to report that mining of ore has resumed ahead of schedule in the Urucum Central South pit as the conditions affecting the stability of the west wall have improved significantly. The radar measurements of the west wall have shown a considerable reduction of movement compared to the earlier levels recorded over the past two months, and improved weather conditions are resulting in greater wall stability.”
