Gold is rising to the top of many investment strategies for numerous reasons:
• Several central banks continue to ease monetary policy (some even turning to negative rates);
• America and China have gone toe to toe in a trade war;
• and, Trump has lambasted the Fed for not dropping rates fast enough, going so far as recommending a 100 basis point cut...
In this type of environment, gold and gold equities are poised to be among the leading beneficiaries.

The host rock at Marudi is quartzite-metachert, and gold mineralization on the property is associated with the quartzite-metachert unit of the rock formation. Gold occurs within the magnetite-hematite rich quartzite and in the magnetite-silicate iron formation. The presence of quartzite-metachert rock is the strongest indicator of gold mineralization, and hence a primary focus for geologists conducting trenching exploration activities. Gold in banded iron formations are excellent exploration targets, renowned for their scalability. They are often found in clusters, a highly attractive quality amongst major gold companies vying for new deposits that can be developed into mines with longevity.
One of the best-known examples of a high-quality gold-bearing banded iron deposit is the Homestake mine in South Dakota, USA. This vast deposit developed into the largest, deepest gold mine in North America until its closure 2002.
Between 1878 and 2001, Homestake produced 43.9 M oz of gold.
