Ressourcen-Wachstum: Brazil Resources erwirbt gigantisches Gold-/Kupfer-Projekt in Kolumbien

Brazil Resources (V.BRI) hat erneut zugeschlagen. Die kanadische Junior-Firma erwirbt in einem Aktienerwerbsabkommen das massive Titiribi Gold- und Kupfer-Projekt von NovaCopper (T.NCQ) in Kolumbien, welches insgesamt Ressourcen von mehr als 10 Mio. Goldunzen und über 800 Mio. Pfund Kupfer enthält.

Das Projekt hatte NovaCopper einst durch die Übernahme von Sunward Resources in 2015 erhalten. Da sich Nova auf das Hauptprojekt in Alaska fokussiert und Brazil auf der Suche nach weiteren Assets mit großen Gold-Ressourcen war, macht der Deal für beide Parteien definitiv Sinn..

  • Brazil Resources to acquire a 100% interest in the Titiribi Gold-Copper Project in central Colombia;

  • Total consideration of 5,000,000 common shares and 1,000,000 share purchase warrants of Brazil Resources with the common shares being issued at closing representing less than 4.6 % dilution to shareholders of Brazil Resources; and
  • The transaction represents a significant milestone in Brazil Resourcesꞌ strategy of targeted acquisitions.

Energiebranche: Entwicklung der chinesischen Uran-Importe (2001-2016)

In China befinden sich die meisten neuen Nuklearreaktoren weltweit im Bau. Das Reich der Mitte strukturiert seinen Energiemix grundlegend um. Neben gigantischen Investitionen in erneuerbare Energien steht natürlich auch die Nuklearenergie hoch im Kurs. Schließlich will man um jeden Preis die massive Energiegewinnung aus Kohle möglich effizient (Stück für Stück) "ersetzen" bzw. verringern.

Hierzu eine spannende Übersicht der chinesischen Uran-Importe und Hauptlieferanten in den letzten 16 Jahren - credit to UxC:

Rohstoff-Markt: Ist Indien der Auslöser eines neuen Super-Zyklus'?

Hierzu ein informativer Artikel von Mining.com:

CHARTS: Maybe India can ignite new commodity supercycle

According to the World Bank, together the BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China) consume 40% of global energy and food commodities and over half of the world's metals. China alone accounted for virtually all the increase in metals (aluminum, copper, lead, nickel, tin and zinc) consumption of the BRICs since 1994.

India's consumption of metals almost doubled over the past 20 years. But it's only taken the sub-continent's global share from 1.9% to 3.4% according to the report. By contrast, China's share of worldwide metals consumption went from 6.4% in 1990 to 43.9% last year..

Gold in Search of Direction Friday After Rapidly Shedding Early Gains at Mid-day

§  Major indices retreated Friday after many set new highs just a day earlier.  The pullback was on the tail of soft U.S. Retail Sales and Producer Price Index (PPI) data points early Friday.  There was an immediate ~$15/oz jump in December Gold futures pre-market, which more or less held up until about noon (PST), when gold retreated ~12/oz in about 20 minutes.  The initial run in gold seemed to be on the back of this economic data that came in below expectations, which could mean slower inflation than anticipated is occurring, potentially pushing back the threat of an interest rate hike. Meanwhile oil posted one of its strongest weekly gains in some time after shedding more than $10/barrel from early June highs of more than $50/barrel to early August lows of sub $40/barrel.  To end the week, Gold and Silver were unchanged at $1,336 (↑0.02%),$19.71 (0%), with platinum and palladium finishing lower at $1,122 (↓2.16%) and $685 (↓1.58%) per ounce respectively. Base metals were mixed; nickel (↓4.05%), zinc (↓1.42%) and copper (↓0.64%) finished lower at $4.65, $1.01 and $2.15 respectively, while lead (↑2.86%) finished higher at $0.83 per pound. The WTI crude price gained 6.38%, while the UxC Broker Average Price of uranium was down (↑0.96%) closing at $26.00 per pound on Friday.
