Shareholder value Mexico gold by Starcore? Return rates of physical gold are never profitable if you invest in the gold jewellery. The reason being that the price of jewellery is not only determined by the gold rates but it also includes the making charges and this is the just the half story i.e. when you purchase the gold. Now, when you sell the gold, the story is totally different, the making charges are not considered and you get the money only for the pure gold based on the gold rates of that particular day. Take for example; the gold rate in Mumbai during December 2015 was 27000 Indian rupees for ten grams of 24 karat gold and assuming that you bought a gold necklace of 20 grams for about 60,000 Indian rupees which include the making charges too. Now, due to some reason you want to sell it and you go to a shop who quotes the price only for the gold that necklace contains and not for the stones it has or the copper which weighs it down to only 13grams and the cost of 13 grams of pure gold in 2020 is only 40000 Indian rupees in 2020, obviously, it is a loss deal for you and thus, poor return rates are one of the downsides to keep in mind while investing in physical gold.
In previous years, increased wealth of emerging market economies boosted demand for gold. In many of these countries, gold is intertwined into the culture. India is one of the largest gold-consuming nations in the world; it has many uses there, including jewelry. As such, the Indian wedding season in October is traditionally the time of the year that sees the highest global demand for gold (though it has taken a tumble in 2012.) In China, where gold bars are a traditional form of saving, the demand for gold has been steadfast.
Starcore International Mining and El Creston Property development news: The Red Hill West Zone is located immediately adjacent to the western boundary of the Red Hill Zone. The zone refers to a 500 metre wide by 500 metre long zone of quartz vein stockwork, hosted by Creston Granite, in which appreciable, >100 ppm, values of molybdenum occur. The host rock is typically oxidized and variably sericitized. Chip sample results include 3 metres averaging 0.083% Mo and a 12 metre composite averaging 0.043% molybdenum. Copper values are negligible. The zone has not been drilled. Discover extra details at mexican gold.
The Ajax Property occurs along the western margin of the Stikinia Terrane of the North America Cordillera, immediately adjacent to the eastern margin of the Coast Plutonic Complex. The property is underlain by Jurassic Hazelton Group rocks consisting primarily of argillaceous sediments and minor interbedded andesite tuffs that locally has been intruded by four closely spaced stocks of quartz monzonite porphyry. The Ajax deposit occupies a rectangular area approximately 650 m x 600 m that ranges in elevation from 425 masl to 1050 masl. The mineralization is predominantly pyrrhotite and lesser molybdenite that typically comprises less than 2% of the rock by volume. Molybdenite is typically associated with quartz and occurs in pyrrhotite-bearing veinlets, in thin stringers and on fracture and shear surfaces. Areas of elevated molybdenite grades (>0.060% Mo) are characterized by a high fracture density where quartz vein stockwork is well developed. Lower grade material (0.030 to 0.060 % Mo), is found in areas of weaker fracturing and forms a broad halo around the higher grade zones, especially below the 762 m elevation contour.
High grade mineralization was discovered at San Martin in the 18th Century, and is reported to have been mined over a period of 40 years; however, no production records exist. Between 1900 and 1924, an estimated 250,000 tonnes grading 15 g Au/t and 100 g Ag/t was reportedly mined. Mineralization occurs in Upper Cretaceous black limestone and calcareous shales of the Soyatal Mexcala Formation as electrum, and silver selenide minerals principally associated with quartz and to a lesser degree with calcite. The deposit is an epithermal, probably high sulphidation precious metal (Ag-Au) type (metal ratio Au:Ag at 1:10), related to a Tertiary dacitic/andesitic intrusive dome.
