Billionaire John Paulson: This Year Gold Will Appreciate Versus the Dollar

Billionaire John Paulson says now is the best time to buy gold. ““The U.S. dollar’s devaluation, due to inflation and geopolitical tensions, will drive gold up considerably this year,” he said, as quoted by “There has been a significant increase in demand from central banks to replace dollars with gold, and we’re just at the beginning of that trend. Gold will go up and the dollar will go down, so you’d be better off keeping your investment reserves in gold at this point. We’re at the beginning of trends that are going to increase the demand for gold, and inflation and geopolitical tensions will determine the rate at which gold increases. This year gold will appreciate versus the dollar, and also over a three, five- and ten-year basis.” That’s all positive news for Calibre Mining Corp. (TSX: CXB) (OTCQX: CXBMF), Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE: GOLD) (TSX: ABX), Newmont Corporation (NYSE: NEM) (TSX: NGT), Kinross Gold Corporation (NYSE: KGC) (TSX: K), and B2Gold (NYSE: BTG) (TSX: BTO).

We have a multi-rig drill program underway following up on the most recent results including 11.61 g/t Au over 9.3m located along the VTEM Gold Corridor approximately 1.5 km northeast of Panteon North indicating an additional high-grade opportunity not included in the 2022 Mineral Resource and Mineral Reserve statement.
