One Analyst is Now Betting that Gold Could Reach $3,000

Goldman Sachs still believes the metal could see $2,500 by the end of the year—especially with fears of a potential recession. According to Jeff Currie, Goldman Sachs global head of commodities research, as quoted by Bloomberg, “It’s a perfect storm for gold right now.” However, Lawrence Lepard, managing partner of Equity Management Associates, as noted by Barron’s, “is betting that gold hits $3,000 within the next two years. He is skeptical of the consensus view that inflation has peaked, and doubtful that the Fed will bring inflation back down near its annual 2% target.” That could be positive news for companies, such as Nine Mile Metals (CSE: NINE) (OTCQB: STVGF), Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE: GOLD) (TSX: ABX), Newmont Corporation (NYSE: NEM) (TSX: NGT), B2Gold Corp. (TSX: BTO) (NYSE: BTG), and Gold Fields Limited (NYSE: GFI).

Look at Nine Mile Metals (CSE: NINE) (OTCQB: STVGF), For Example

Nine Mile Metals announced it has signed a new Mineral Property Option to acquire all the Vendor’s right, title and interest in and to 12 mineral claims: California Lake (6 claims), Canoe Landing Lake East (4 claims); and Nine Mile Brook area (2 claims) of the Bathurst Mining Camp, New Brunswick, subject to a 2% Net Smelter Royalty. The Mineral Property Option Agreement is dated April 25, 2022. Nine Mile Metals geological exploration footprint has now increased from 31.24 km2 to a massive 70.18 km2, over the most fruitful host rocks in the entire BMC. Nine Mile now has three distinct advanced VMS Projects: Nine Mile Brook; California Lake; and Canoe Landing Lake (East and West). These acquisitions transform Nine Mile Metals into one of the largest exploration companies in the BMC.

These strategic acquisitions solidify the Company’s land position in the highly target rich Spruce Lake, Canoe Landing Lake, and Boucher Brook Formations, in the world-famous Bathurst Mining Camp. These prolific formations host 16 of the 46 known VMS deposits, including Trevali’s producing Caribou mine.

California Lake VMS Project

The California Lake VMS Project covers 24.42 square kilometers immediately north of the Canoe Landing Lake Project and includes a large section of the highly prospective Spruce Lake Formation. Included in the land package are 4 known base metal (Cu, Pb, Zn) mineral occurrences: South Branch Forty Mile Brook; California Lake 32 South; California Lake 68 South and California Lake – Murray Brook. Historical work in the area identified a variety of VMS depositional styles including disseminated and stringer sulphides in addition to massive, tabular massive sulphides as at the California Lake 32 South Zone where previous drilling intersected values ranging from 7.86% Zn, 2.51% Pb, 73.9 g/t Ag and 1.41 g/t Au over 6 metres.

At California Lake – Murray Brook, historical surface trenching identified an extensive hydrothermal alteration zone some 500 metres in length and between 10 and 100 metres wide with significant concentrations of base metal sulphides including grab samples up to 5% Cu. At California Lake 68 South, 4-meter drill intersections assayed 2% Pb/Zn with minor copper and silver.

Canoe Landing Lake VMS Project

To the southeast of California Lake, the acquired Canoe Landing Lake East VMS property covers 5.5 square kilometers along the east flank of the Canoe Landing Lake VMS Deposit. Hosted within the Boucher Brook Formation near the contact with the Canoe Landing Lake Formation, the deposit consists of 22.8 million tons grading 0.64% Pb, 1.82% Zn, 0.56% Cu, 0.94 oz/ton Ag and 0.034 oz/t Au. This additional property increases our Canoe Landing Lake VMS Project to 10.78 km2, which includes both Canoe Landing Lake West and Canoe Landing Lake East properties.

Nine Mile Brook VMS Project:

The newly acquired Upper Pabineau River and Nine Mile Brook properties on the eastern flank of our existing Flagship Nine Mile Brook VMS Project, adds 9.02 square kms of prospective stratigraphy along the Boucher Brook Formation, host of the Nine Mile Brook VMS occurrence and the Canoe Landing Lake Deposit to the west. These additional properties increase our Nine Mile Brook VMS Project to 34.98 km2.

Utilizing recent proprietary advances in both technology and data processing, this large project portfolio will be aggressively explored for its VMS potential. Initial geophysical targeting will be followed up by ground-based surveys, 3D modeling and diamond drilling. Bore hole surveys will be conducted to define subsurface mineralization.

“We are very pleased to announce these strategic acquisitions which add significant shareholder value to our project portfolio. These acquisitions dramatically increase our exploration footprint in the BMC, and de-risks our portfolio tremendously. To have three (3) significant VMS exploration projects, deeply roots Nine Mile in the Bathurst Mining Camp”, stated Patrick J Cruickshank, MBA – Director & Technical Advisory Committee Member.
