The project is 50 km west of Medellin and 60 km south from Zijin Mining's Buriticá operation. More information on the Anza project and Newmont's Exploration Agreement with Orosur Mining Inc. can be found here .

An Overview of Gold Investing and Prices (Updated 2022)

An Overview of Gold Investing and Prices (Updated 2022)

Gold is the best-known and most popular precious metal, and it’s not hard to see why.

Beyond being a key material for jewelry, investors around the world buy gold as a store of wealth, and many believe it’s superior to paper currency. Storing wealth with a sense of stability is a popular reason for investing in gold.

Over the last decade, the gold price has seen both peaks and troughs. It rose as high as around US$1,790 per ounce in late 2012, but took a steep dive midway through 2013, slipping to about US$1,220. The gold price remained between US$1,100 and US$1,300 from 2014 to early 2019. In H2 2019, a softer US dollar, geopolitical issues and a slowdown in economic growth pushed gold above US$1,500 that year.

Why Does the US Federal Reserve Hike Interest Rates? (Updated 2022)

The US Federal Reserve, inflation and interest rates have consistently made headlines in recent months.

Recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic has unleashed demand across industries, while global supply chains have been hampered by factors like Russia's war in Ukraine and continued lockdowns in China due to the country's zero-COVID policy.
