B2Gold Corp. (TSX: BTO, NYSE AMERICAN: BTG, NSX: B2G) ("B2Gold" or the "Company") announces that it has sold an aggregate 79,000,000 common shares of Calibre Mining Corp. ("Calibre") in the ordinary course for investment purposes by way of a block trade (the "Transaction") for aggregate gross proceeds of C$139.04 million.

B2Gold will be filing an early warning report under National Instrument 62-103 in connection with the sale of the Calibre shares, a copy of which will be available under Calibre's profile on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.com .

Immediately prior to the Transaction, B2Gold owned 110,950,333 common shares of Calibre representing approximately 14.1% of Calibre. As a result of the Transaction, B2Gold's ownership has decreased to less than 10% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Calibre and B2Gold has ceased to be a "reporting insider" as defined in National Instrument 55-104 – Insider Reporting Requirements. Accordingly, B2Gold will no longer file insider or early warning reports in respect of its ownership of securities of Calibre, except as required by applicable law.

B2Gold's decision to dispose of the common shares of Calibre pursuant to the Transaction was made as a result of investment considerations including price, market conditions, capital allocation priorities, and corporate strategy. B2Gold remains a supportive shareholder of Calibre and does not currently plan to make any additional changes to its interest.

Kerry Stevenson: Ready to Invest After Cashing Out (Gold, Biotech and More)

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Kerry Stevenson, host of Making Money Matter, explained why she sold all but three stocks in her portfolio late last year, and what she's doing with her money now.

"I actually cashed in the whole portfolio aside from one coal stock ... and two gold stocks," she said on the sidelines of the Rule Symposium. "I've been sitting in cash up until about two and a half weeks ago, when I've come back in with quite big licks on four stocks, and I've still got some cash where I'm looking at some of the small caps."

One gold stock Stevenson is "very happy" with is Spartan Resources (ASX:SPR,OTC Pink:GYYSF), formerly Gascoyne Resources, which she said has undergone a turnaround since Managing Director Simon Lawson took the helm.

Joe Cavatoni: Gold's Next Price Catalyst After Record H1 Performance

Joe Cavatoni, senior market strategist, Americas, at the World Gold Council, reviewed gold's H1 performance and outlined what factors could drive the yellow metal in the second half of the year.

"I think that what we're looking at in the second half of the year is whether or not the eastern investor, who doesn't really pay much attention to where US rates are, or real rates are in western markets — they're looking at their homegrown investment requirements — will they stay active and actually continue to make that investment into gold in their investment portfolios," he said on the sidelines of the Rule Symposium.

Top 6 ASX Gold ETFs in 2024

The gold price has reached historic highs in 2024, rising well above US$2,400 per ounce. For Australian investors, the price of the yellow metal has surged above the AU$3,700 mark in the past few months.

These gains have come as investors anticipate interest rate cuts and against a backdrop of geopolitical turmoil. Gold has also been buoyed by central bank buying, with China, India and Turkey leading the way in the first half of 2024.

For many investors, gold is a tool for diversification. The precious metal is known for its ability to act as a safe haven and hence operates as a protective option when building a balanced portfolio.
