"I think a lot of gold equities in particular have been caught in a broad selloff, and maybe gold somewhat the same way," said Alastair Still of GoldMining.
GoldMining: Gold Equities Caught in Broad Selloff, Sentiment Will Reboundyoutu.be
Although gold's performance in 2022 has disappointed some investors, the yellow metal's price is still high by historical standards and it remains a safe haven in tumultuous times.
"There's been a little bit of fear out there — there's concerns about inflation, talk of recession … people are trying to navigate the waters. It can get a little complicated," he said at the event, held at the end of July.
"I think a lot of gold equities in particular have been caught in a broad selloff, and maybe gold somewhat the same way," Still continued. "The sentiment for gold I think will rebound — it's traditionally been a great hedge against inflation, and people will go to that as more of a safe-harbor investment to protect themselves."
Inflation is a concern not only for investors, but also for mining companies. Speaking about how GoldMining has been affected, Still said the company has been relatively sheltered compared to major miners.
"Fortunately for us it has less of an impact, because we have less of our costs being put into the projects right now than a major company," he explained.
That's not to say the company isn't moving forward at its assets. Key focuses right now are GoldMining's Whistler gold-copper project in Alaska, and its Colombia-based La Mina project, where a preliminary economic assessment was completed earlier this year. Still also mentioned GoldMining's recent partnership with NevGold (TSXV:NAU,OTCQX:NAUFF) on its Almaden project in Idaho.
