PALM BEACH, Fla., Nov. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary - As history has shown again and again, Gold will go up and down but it always seems to end up on the high side… eventually. For much of this year, rising inflation has been bad news for gold. Now it's giving the metal a shot in the arm, according to a recent article from Bloomberg News. The article said: "While bullion is often bought as a way to protect wealth when consumer prices are climbing, this year's inflation had weighed on the metal as investors bet that it would spur the Federal Reserve to scale back huge stimulus measures. But with the Fed determined to keep rates low while unemployment remains elevated, worries about out-of-control inflation are boosting gold's allure. That was clear on Wednesday (11/10/2021), when gold jumped to break out of a 15-month downtrend after data showed U.S. consumer prices rose the fastest since 1990. On Thursday, spot prices rose as much as 0.9%, before paring some of the gain." It continued: "Inflation "is not transitory," said Nicky Shiels, head of metals strategy at MKS (Switzerland) SA. "It's injected some bullish momentum. That's a change from the previous 'thinking' since the Fed's taper threat is out of the way." Active Companies in the markets today include Kingfisher Metals Corp. (OTCQB: KGFMF) (TSX-V: KFR), Great Bear Resources Ltd. (OTCQX: GTBAF) (TSXV: GBR), Newmont Corporation (NYSE: NEM) (TSX: NGT), Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE: GOLD) (TSX: ABX), Kinross Gold Corporation (NYSE:KGC) (TSX:K).
Gold's recent rally shows that the market doesn't expect the Fed -- which last week announced the pace of its bond-buying tapering -- to do much more to tackle inflation right now. That's creating a Goldilocks environment for the metal, where inflation erodes bond yields that are kept in check by stimulus measures, burnishing the appeal of non-interest bearing assets like gold. It's not just the U.S. seeing inflation accelerate. Data also show prints in China, Japan and Germany climbing the fastest in decades, and there are signs that's sparking fresh physical demand for gold. "German private investors have already reacted to the recent higher inflation rates with rising demand," said Alexander Zumpfe, a senior trader at refiner Heraeus Metals Germany GmbH & Co. "We are observing a significant increase in buying interest for gold bars."
Kingfisher Metals Corp. (OTCQB: KGFMF) (TSX-V: KFR) BREAKING NEWS - Kingfisher Intersects 6.88 g/t Au, 13.60 g/t Ag, and 0.28% Cu over 9 m in first-ever drill program, Cloud Drifter Trend, Goldrange Project - Kingfisher Metals Corp. (OTCQB: KGFMF) (TSX-V: KFR) (FSE: 970) ("Kingfisher" or the "Company") is pleased to announce results from the first four holes assayed from its 14-hole 4925.3 m 2021 program. Assay results for 10 remaining drill holes are pending. Goldrange is located approximately 25 km south of the town of Tatla Lake in the Chilcotin region of Southwest British Columbia.
- Discovery of a high-grade sulfide-cement hydrothermal breccia with 6.88 g/t Au, 13.6 g/t Ag and 0.28% Cu over 9 m, in GR21-007
- Vein-style mineralization yielding 14.80 g/t Au over 1 m within 2.16 g/t Au over 8 m, also in GR21-007; and 5.30 g/t Au over 1 m in GR21-002
- Drilling to date has also revealed broad zones of near-surface mineralization over significant widths, such as 0.90 g/t Au over 12 m, 0.41 g/t Au over 16 m, 0.38 g/t Au over 9 m, and 0.38 g/t Au over 10 m in GR21-003; and 0.32 g/t Au over 7 m and 0.32 g/t over 8 m in GR21-007
The initial results of drilling confirm the presence of a gold system with significant intersects in all holes other than GR21-001, which failed to reach target depth due to difficult drilling conditions in this shallow, slope-parallel hole; poor recoveries may have plagued the shallower parts of all drill holes in this release
The 2021 drill program targeted a small part (350 m) of the western end of the gold-in-soil geochemical anomaly that defines the ~3 by 2 km Cloud Drifter Trend, in an area of extensive forest cover and limited outcrop…
… Dustin Perry, CEO of Kingfisher states "I am thrilled that we were able to intersect high-grade mineralization on the initial drill holes of the first ever diamond drill program at the Goldrange Project. This initial drill program at Goldrange covered less than 10% of the Cloud Drifter Trend yet it is yielding some impressive intersections so far. We believe we are in the early stages of the discovery of a significant high-grade gold camp and we look forward to receiving our remaining results from both the Cloud Drifter drilling and from our property-wide exploration (soil and rock geochemical sampling, geological mapping, and IP geophysics). Planning for an expanded 2022 drill and field program throughout the Trend has already begun."
Charlie Greig, Technical Advisor to Kingfisher, stated "The results from the first Cloud Drifter holes are exciting. To get broad ore grade intercepts in the initial holes bodes very well for the exploration potential of the Trend. The polyphase nature of the mineralization and its association with elevated bismuth, tellurium and antimony, elements which may be valuable in their own right and which are very commonly associated with high-grade gold deposits worldwide is significant. It is very early days for the Goldrange Project and its numerous mineral occurrences, which are just now beginning to be tested with modern exploration methods."

Great Bear Resources Ltd. (OTCQX: GTBAF) (TSXV: GBR) recently reported gold recovery test results from its 100% owned flagship Dixie Project, in the Red Lake district of Ontario.
Chris Taylor, President and CEO of Great Bear said, "We selected what were anticipated to be the 'most difficult' mineralized domains to extract gold from at the LP Fault, and are pleased to report very high gold recoveries at all grades. This has strong positive implications for the future development potential of the Dixie project. Similar very high gold recoveries from the Dixie Limb and Hinge zones using comparable grinding and cyanidation protocols indicates mineralized material from all gold zones is likely amenable to processing through the same extraction circuits. Initial LP Fault cyanidation gold recovery tests confirm that non-refractory, free gold dominates all low to high-grade domains tested to-date. All Dixie gold zones have excellent potential for significant gravity circuit gold recoveries, which will be investigated in the next phase of metallurgical testing."
