When it comes to investing, as is often the case, many investors will have no interest in participating in a sector as long as the trend is sloping downwards. As it pertains to gold, a newfound buzz surrounding the precious metal has re-emerged since the spot price decided to go vertical, surging $170 to $1,220/oz since bottoming out in late December 2015 at $1,050/oz. With the change in market sentiment, demand for physical bullion, mining stocks, ETF products, etc. is starting to rapidly increase. If this most recent rally is indeed a sign of an impending new bull run to follow, we are most likely just entering into the very early stages of the upturn (1st inning, perhaps), so the “good news” is that investors who want in on the action still have time to position themselves accordingly before the tide turns for good.

Newmarket Gold (OTCQX:NMKTF) has sure been in the news a lot lately. In early March, the company reported a strong Q4 and year, recording $76.5 million in operating cash flow, on top of 222,671 oz of gold produced in 2015, which exceeded the upper range of guidance.
Later in the month, Newmarket announced that mineral reserves at its flagship Fosterville mine have increased by 34%, to 244,000 oz due in large part to the discovery of the high-grade Eagle Fault Zone, which has also helped continue reading at Seeking Alpha…

Klondex Mines (NYSEMKT:KLDX) is a growing junior gold producer that operates the Fire Creek and Midas mines in Nevada. Thus far, I have been impressed with the company’s disciplined approach to focus its efforts more so on maintaining a strong balance sheet and capital structure, from quarter to quarter, as opposed to merely chasing continue reading at Seeking Alpha…

With the recent strong performance from gold and gold mining shares, one might want to ponder and ask, “How is gold’s little brother silver doing?”
As of the time of this writing, the spot price of silver is trading at $15.83/oz, up 15% YTD.
So, pretty good… relatively speaking. Silver is starting to climb out of its hole (thanks partially to a dovish Fed), and these strong gains have also translated their way over to continue reading at Seeking Alpha…

Gold and gold mining stocks have been surging of late, but like everything else out there, what goes up must come back down, eventually. Since peaking at over $1,280/oz, the spot price of gold, at the time of writing, is now $1,235/oz, down 3.5% in just a matter of days.
For the patient investor, this most recent decline could spell opportunity, especially if a deeper retracement is experienced in the near-term. Gold mining stocks are inherently linked to the spot price of gold, but tend to be even more volatile than the yellow metal itself.
