Nader Vatanchi CEO of Spey Resources commented, "We are making great progress at Incahuasi Salar, with geophysics completed, the road in good condition and easy access. Amaru, our drillers are very familiar with the salar and are completing their preparations. Our bulk brine surface samples from Incahuasi Salar have been sent to the University of Melbourne to be processed. The state of the art Ekosolve™ process handles very high levels of magnesium so we are looking forward to the results of the processing using their laboratory scale plant and samples of lithium carbonate. At Pocitos Salar, we have the results of surface sampling and geophysics completed on Pocitos 2 and drilling completed close by on Pocitos 1 by AIS Resources. The project drill team have nearly completed all their preparations. I'm delighted with the progress our team has made and look forward to the brine analysis results from drilling and University of Melbourne."

Martyn Element Chairman of AIS stated, "We are pleased with the rapid progress Spey Resources is making in progressing the Incahuasi and Pocitos projects."

AIS has granted Spey the option to acquire 80% of the Incahuasi project by making certain cash and share payments including making $500,000 in exploration expenditures by April 21, 2022. Spey may acquire the remaining 20% by making a payment of $6 million (subject to increase by $250,000 for each fifty tonnes by which the indicated or inferred resource exceeds 45 million tonnes lithium metal equivalent) by March 18, 2023.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Pulls Back After Spike, Central Banks Boost Holdings

Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Pulls Back After Spike, Central Banks Boost Holdings

It was a week of ups and downs for the gold price, which traded as high as US$1,957 per ounce and as low as US$1,863. At the time of this writing on Friday (February 3), the yellow metal was around US$1,865.

What factors are responsible for that broad range? The US Federal Reserve played a role mid-week.

The central bank's first meeting of the year ran from Tuesday (January 31) to Wednesday (February 1), and it ended with an interest rate hike of 25 basis points, the smallest since last March. The Fed's benchmark interest rate now sits at 4.5 to 4.75 percent.

VIDEO — Ross Beaty: Gold Fundamentals Terrific, Set to Blow Through Previous High

VIDEO — Ross Beaty: Gold Fundamentals Terrific, Set to Blow Through Previous High

After gold's flat performance in 2022, well-known mining sector entrepreneur Ross Beaty has a better outlook for 2023.

"Quite frankly, I think there's so much momentum right now — I'm very confident gold's going to blow through its previous high and sail into new territory, probably this year," he said at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC).

In Beaty's view, it was the US dollar's strength that killed gold's momentum last year. But even he had trouble reconciling the yellow metal's lack of momentum with the sheer number of seemingly positive price drivers.

VIDEO — Nick Santiago: Gold Can Still Pull Back to US$1,500 Before All-time High

The gold price has been on the rise for the last few months, but Nick Santiago, CEO and chief market strategist at InTheMoneyStocks.com, still believes a big pullback to the US$1,500 per ounce level is possible.

"I'm not bearish gold at the moment, but if I do get a sell signal, I think the next leg down takes you to that US$1,500 level, which would be the ultimate buy area," he explained to the Investing News Network. "I think that's going to be your chance to really get into gold for the long term. And then I do think gold ultimately breaks out to a new all-time high."

In terms of exactly how high gold could go in 2023, Santiago said he doesn't expect US$5,000 or US$10,000 like some market watchers are projecting. However, he does see the high US$2,000s, or possibly even US$3,000, as possible.

VIDEO — EB Tucker: Gold, Silver Price Levels to Watch, 2023 Investing Strategies

With the new year ahead, "Why Gold? Why Now?" author EB Tucker shared his thoughts on gold and silver, saying that US$2,000 per ounce and US$30 per ounce respectively are important levels for investors to watch.

"US$2,000's got to be a 2023 story," he told the Investing News Network when asked if gold could reach that key price this year. "The way it looks right now, you're US$60 away. I think it could happen fast."

Pointing to gold's rise of about US$300 since early November, Tucker said that the futures market sets the spot price, and activity in that arena has stopped weighing on the yellow metal over the last several months.
