Palm Beach, FL – March 31, 2021 – Experts, analysts and investors alike all seem to wonder, just how far will gold actually go in 2021. Some analysts say that it will soar again saying that the collapse of the US dollar could send gold prices soaring and this would allow Americans could book major gains in this safe haven in 2021. It’s already being touted as “the best performing asset class of the 21st century”… And Goldman Sachs is also predicting a gold bull market in 2021… reporting they expect it to reach an incredible $2,300 per ounce in the months ahead. Many Americans are moving their money out of the sinking U.S. dollar and into the “safe haven” that’s delivered gains over 7X greater than the stock market this year… physical gold and silver. An article in Market Insider, discussing what Goldman Sachs is predicting, said Gold’s bull market will continue into 2021 for 3 reasons…. And In the near-term, gold will likely continue to consolidate sideways with no clear positive or negative catalysts, but expect more upside in the long term. The first of the 3 reasons is that Inflation expectations move higher. It said: “In this cycle, we believe the gold market, at least initially, is likely to follow the same path as after the Great Financial Crisis and grow strongly into the recovery phase of the business cycle as inflation concerns become central to the forecast. With policies surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic focused on fiscal spending, combined with household balance sheets at better levels than they were coming out of the 2008 recession, “the Fed appears more willing to tolerate a temporary inflation overshoot. This may well lead to market participant concerns over the long-term inflation rate and more inflows into gold in order to hedge it,” Goldman said. Active stocks in the mining markets this week include Calibre Mining Corp. (OTCQX: CXBMF) (TSX: CXB), K92 Mining Inc. (TSX: KNT) (OTCQX: KNTNF), IAMGOLD Corporation (TSX: IMG) (NYSE: IAG), New Gold Inc. (TSX: NGD) (NYSE: NGD), B2Gold Corp. (TSX: BTO) (NYSE: BTG).
The 2nd reason is that the U.S. dollar may weaken. It said: “A breakdown in the correlation of gold and long term real rates has been pretty common with its correlation switching to the dollar and other commodities during these breakdown periods,” Goldman explained. “The breakdown of negative gold price changes and real rates correlation typically happens when the positive rates-dollar correlation disappears. This is the environment which our FX and rates strategists expect in 2021,” Goldman said.
The 3rd reason was that if emerging market retail demand continues to cover. It said: “”We see a strong rebound in EM gold demand which should support higher gold prices through the wealth effect,” Goldman said, adding that gold demand from China and India is already displaying signs of normalisation. “Biden’s election win and vaccine news should continue to push currencies of emerging market consumers higher as tariff risks are lower, supporting their purchasing power,” Goldman added. “The strategic case for gold remains strong in our view,” Goldman concluded. The firm has a $2,300/toz gold price target…”

Darren Hall, President and CEO, stated: “Our investment in exploration in 2020 has resulted in the largest Mineral Reserve since 2010 and the highest reserve grade of 4.49 g/t Au on record which provides an excellent foundation for future growth. I am very pleased with how the team has integrated our assets utilizing our ‘Hub and Spoke’ operating model and positively exceeded production and cost guidance in our first full year of operation.”
