Will Price of Gold Hit New High?

The price of gold may soon surge considerably, brought about by the increasing inflationary pressures that are improving bullion’s appeal. Earlier this week, the price of gold stood fast, despite gold futures in the United States recording a 0.1% gain and spot gold dropping by 0.2%. However, despite the modest decline, spot gold is still up by almost 8%. Concurrently, the U.S. dollar, which has often been used as an alternative to bullion, is now in its second consecutive month of decline, which can be observed in the Dollar Index, which had dropped by 0.2% on Monday.

Since last year, industrial metals have been experiencing a hot bull run, which has boosted prices to record highs.

Renewable Energy Drive Could Boost Silver Prices

While other metals have surged in price, silver has lagged in comparison. However, Permanent Portfolio Family of Funds portfolio manager and president Michael Cuggino speculates that the metal’s price may go higher in the near future given that last year, silver futures rose by more than 45%. Cuggino adds that a possible drop in the U.S. dollar, a lack of capacity investment over the past few years and perceived or real inflation as the international economy rebounds, may also contribute to the metal’s price moves. Earlier this year, silver was going for $30 per ounce after a Reddit post online…

Vanadium Batteries Could Be Future of Energy Storage

At the beginning of the year, the California Energy Commission announced that it would be setting aside $20 million to be used to finance research projects for long-duration energy storage. The aim was to establish a clear understanding of the part long-duration energy storage could play in meeting the mandates to decarbonize the state’s electricity sector in 20 years. The solicitation didn’t include lithium-ion batteries. The commission chose a quartet of energy storage projects from Invinity Energy Systems Plc, which is based in the United Kingdom and North America. The projects had integrated vanadium flow batteries. All the sites chosen…

2020 Mining Capital Expenditure Reduces by 8% Due to Pandemic

Recent research conducted by S&P Global Market Intelligence has discovered that actual capital expenditures decreased by 8% last year in more than 400 mining companies. This was a result of the regional lockdowns imposed, which brought about work stoppages and placed unprecedented stress on international supply chains. At the start of last year, S&P Global Market Intelligence forecasted a capital expenditure of more than $160 million, based on a 9% year-over-year increase of the previous year. However, the pandemic’s impact on the mining sector prompted miners to alter spending plans, which brought the forecasted capital expenditures to about $155 billion.…

Researchers Assert That Going Green Will Prompt Increase in Mining Activities

Researchers reveal that the present supply of minerals and metals will not be able to support a universal economy that’s producing net zero carbon emissions. These experts argue that the rates of extraction of these resources has to be increased, even if it’s only in the short term, adding that in due course, recycling on a large scale should be able to meet the demand for critical minerals such as lithium. While mining initiatives are usually not well received given the negative effects the action can have on both health and the environment, Richard Herrington and his fellow researchers believe…

Future Copper Deficits May Be Addressed by Mining Tailings

The use of new technology and the recent increase in copper prices has changed how miners are extracting copper from waste rock dumps. The price of the red metal surged as global stimulus measures prompted an increase in demand. Long-term projections show that the increase in consumption, which is driven by the green-energy transition, will surpass supply in the near future. A recent study reported by CRU Group has discovered that more than 40 million tons of copper are lying in waste dumps in different mines around the world. The red metal is considered to be challenging to economically extract…
