This is Why Gold Could Run Back to $2,000, Near-Term

Gold prices could be headed back to $2,000, “with warnings over a global economic slowdown paving the way for a fresh push toward $2,000 an ounce. A potent mix of decades-high inflation, geopolitical turmoil and growing talk of recession should be bullish for the traditional haven,” according to All could be positive news for stocks, such as Benchmark Metals Inc. (TSXV: BNCH) (OTCQX: BNCHF), Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE: GOLD) (TSX: ABX), Newmont Corporation (NYSE: NEM) (TSX: NGT), B2Gold Corp. (TSX: BTO) (NYSE: BTG), and Equinox Gold Corp. (TSX: EQX) (NYSE: EQX).

In addition, “After decades of massive deficit spending and ultra-loose monetary policies, we are heading toward a period of stagflation," said Gregor Gregersen, founder of Silver Bullion Pte, as also quoted by “In this kind of environment, safe-haven assets like physical gold and silver are some of the best things you can own."

Look at Benchmark Metals Inc. (TSXV: BNCH) (OTCQX: BNCHF)

Benchmark Metals Inc. announced new drill results from the middle portion of the Cliff Creek deposit (“CC Mid”), which has historically seen less drilling and more moderate results relative to Cliff Creek North and Cliff Creek South zones of the deposit. Drill hole 22CCDD014 intersected two broad intervals, an upper zone grading 1.98 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) and 48.77 g/t silver (Ag) or 2.59 g/t gold equivalent (AuEq*) over 21.20 metres (m), and a lower zone grading 3.09 g/t Au and 106.50 g/t Ag or 4.42 g/t AuEq over 18.81 metres. These results from CC Mid, including several other better than expected intervals in recent drilling, may have the potential to positively impact future resource updates from the Company’s flagship Lawyers Gold-Silver Project, located within a road-accessible region of the prolific Golden Horseshoe area of north-central British Columbia, Canada.

John Williamson, CEO, commented, “Continued strong results from the CC Mid zone would have important implications for possible future production scenarios, as historically the bulk of mineralization at Cliff Creek is localized within the northern and southern portions of the deposit area. These results are encouraging, and we are excited to continue to test this prospective zone where it remains open at depth.”


- Two significant zones of broad bulk-tonnage enveloping high-grade mineralization, with other zones of important mineralization, intercepted in drill hole 22CCDD014:

21.20mof1.98g/tAuand48.77g/tAgor2.59g/tAuEq, including 0.41mof37.10g/t Au and 1845.00 g/t Ag or 60.16 g/t AuEq;

- The CC mid zone has multiple prominent intercepts below the 2021 $1600/oz Au pit shell, with the broad lower zone in hole 22CCDD014 occurring approximately 100 metres below the pit shell at 340 metres vertical depth.
