RAMPING UP DIDIPIO COPPER MINE OUTPUT DURING REMAINDER OF 2021/22
"Patience is a virtue" as they say..
two motives come to mind
those with cash reserves being ultra-cautious ( putting any money into the market )
the other is several gold producers are expanding/accelerating their projects and available cash might be a little thin
to me the market seems to have a lot of 'churn ' in the last 3 years ( hinting more traders and fewer investors participating )
OGC: Outlook Improving On Didipio Restart
Oct. 31, 2021 1:20 AM SeekingAlpha article
OceanaGold released its Q3 results last week, reporting quarterly production of ~79,200 ounces at all-in sustaining costs of $1,200/oz.
The major news was the restart of mining at Didipio, following a 25-year renewal of the Financial or Technical Assistance Agreement.
With significant contribution from Didipio once it reaches full production, and operations continuing to improve at Haile with a focus on free cash flow, the outlook is improving considerably.
Given OceanaGold's path towards higher production at significantly lower costs starting in 2023, I would view any pullbacks below US$1.60 as low-risk buying opportunities.
CleanSpace CSX "Cup and handle" chart pattern on the 6 month chart. Handle now complete....CSX is ready to blow!!!
Thanks DH Karlos re: DEG as I'll check it out/added to watchlist.
To return the favour, watch RRL as seems "quite undervalued" compared to it's larger peer's within Gold sector. Don't see much downside whatsoever imo around the $2 level dyor
I haven't owned any DEG for a long time but I did very well in it's original run-up. I didn't participate in it's second run-up but I'm watching to see if it can have a third one.
The price would need to make a 3rd higher high which at this stage is asking a lot. I think it would take a market crash or something similar.
I have never been interested in trying to buy anything cheap just because I like it. It's much more important to like what the market likes and that is shown when you see a long length of higher highs and higher lows on a chart. Quite often a buy signal is given. This can be as simple as a 3rd bounce up from an ascending trend line and preferably on good volume.
So you buy into something that is happening now, rather than what you think will happen later. If you cant wait, then there are other sectors to consider. Lithium for example but I have noticed that red rodent's ID on this so don't listen to him or this Karlos 68 person who sucks up to him and that includes his sock puppet Puss 'n Boots.
I prefer silver to gold but the US "Federal" Reserve choose that because it's thinly traded, so they send their principal dealer, JP Morgan Chase, to the futures markets to short it and because they hold a monumental amount in both bullion and coins, they can claim they are hedging. You have probably heard trendlines talk about this on this forum before. I wonder where he has gone. A very knowledgeable mentor to follow but I'll admit I'm biased.
Will there ever be a successful silver squeeze? Will people ever see Santa Claus climbing up and down chimneys? I say no to both.
i haven't found an attractive ( to me ) silver play unless you count S32 , most of my silver producer exposure is as a by-product of miners focusing on a different resource
i guess i will keep to physical silver in the foreseeable future
watch the production costs , the big players need to keep the prices low because of the leverage they play with ( only industry and a few retail holders want the real thing )
Yes, as I have said before, the silver mined in Australia is a by-product of copper. lead, zinc and gold and I suggested if people think silver has a future but consider holding bullion is too conservative, and I am one of those, then they could look at Canadian companies who have their projects in Mexico.
You will find that the Canadian Billionaire Eric Sprott has financed some of these companies. From what I can see he seems to make a success of the things he invests in. He is into uranium now and is succeeding, but the volatility in these stocks is enormous and therefore there is no way to even have a trailing stop loss without being whipsawed out of positions, even sometimes on a daily basis. Also I like to trade using basic TA and that's impossible to do in a situation like that.
I bought one of the silver companies Sprott finances, SLVR, Mainly just to see how it went. I have sold it now as I believe it's not the right time to buy PMs. Too many of these "gurus" like Schiff, Rickards, Malone, Morgan, (not JP) Wagner and others sell the stuff or have a financial interest in seeing the price go higher.
Look elsewhere till if and when, at least that resistance line on silver gets penetrated. $31+ p/oz should be ok and even then you need to choose companies that are not too effected when that parasite called the Federal Reserve manipulates the markets. In my opinion it's not worth it, especially when there are other choices available now.
i like my physical REALLY close
now sure i have some old coins and cutlery ( and some other stuff ) ( a buddy prefers bullion )
but i try not to have a 'pot of money ' a government can target ( like put the squeeze on the storage facility , and banks with safety deposit boxes )
