These May be Some of the Key Catalysts for Higher Gold Prices

The pandemic has changed the world. "While the pandemic will eventually pass, it has left the world changed and has in fact compounded and worsened some of the factors that are supportive of gold prices," the CPM Group said, as quoted by “The biggest drivers that will support gold as the world reopens include sovereign and private sector debts, deficits, and ultra-loose monetary policies.” That could fuel a substantial recovery in gold moving forward, as well as upside for companies such as Stevens Gold Nevada Inc. (CSE:SG) (OTC:STVGF), Barrick Gold Corp. (NYSE:GOLD)(TSX:ABX), Iamgold Corp. (NYSE:IAG), Equinox Gold Corp. (NYSE:EQX), and Royal Gold Inc. (NASDAQ:RGLD).

Stevens Gold Nevada Inc. just announced announces that its field crew has arrived at Section 20 of the Millennium Gold property located 4.8 km northeast of Lake Havasu City in western Arizona and has commenced a Mobile Metal Ions (MMI) soil geochemical survey.

The MMI survey will focus on improving the definition of high contrast gold anomalies of up to 225 times background previously defined in 2007 by a widely spaced reconnaissance scale sampling pattern. The 2007 survey was designed to provide an initial assessment of gold potential on all three sections of the property. The survey will target extensions of overburden-covered historic structurally controlled high-grade gold mineralization hosted in subaerially deposited felsic and mafic volcanic rocks and intrusions. A total of 213 sites have been defined in and around the 1 km2 regional gold anomaly for this phase of the follow-up surveys.

Upon completion of the survey, soil samples will be shipped to and analyzed by the Vancouver (B.C., Canada) laboratories of SGS Mineral Services. Results will be released as they are received.
