“When the facts change, I change my mind, what do you do?” – a question credited to the great 20th century economist, Lord Keynes, and one which today’s investors should note as encouraging Covid-19 vaccine news floods financial markets.

“When the facts change, I change my mind, what do you do?” – a question credited to the great 20th century economist, Lord Keynes, and one which today’s investors should note as encouraging Covid-19 vaccine news floods financial markets. Gold, a favourite of many Australian investors, was first to feel the chill of a market shift with the price taking a $US100 an ounce hit, partly because of vaccine news and partly because of a modest increase in U.S. interest rates and a weakening of the U.S. dollar.

Battery metals and rare earths could emerge as the big winners if Joe Biden is confirmed as the winner of the U.S. Presidential election

Battery metals and rare earths could emerge as the big winners if Joe Biden is confirmed as the winner of the U.S. Presidential election, though the more likely winner in the short term will be gold as market volatility rises until all votes are counted and legal claims resolved. With policies that clearly favour renewable energy over fossil fuels, a Biden-led government will accelerate the shift to electric cars, wind turbines and solar panels. Coal, oil and gas will be the big losers from the shift.

The field season in this remote province is in full flight, offering investors leverage in abundance. Plus, former analyst helps kaolin IPO and WA iron ore junior set for first sales in new year.

There has been more gold and copper found in WA’s remote Paterson province in recent times than anywhere else in the country. Rio Tinto estimated the shallow resource at its still growing Winu find at 4.4 million ounces of gold and 1.8Mt of copper back in July, and it has also reported high-grade gold hits at the nearby Ngapakarra prospect.

Virus 1. Rest of the World 0. That’s the score on the first of two mega-issues which drove markets lower this week with virus gloom magnified by the uncertainty ahead of Tuesday’s U.S. Presidential election.

Virus 1. Rest of the World 0. That’s the score on the first of two mega-issues which drove markets lower this week with virus gloom magnified by the uncertainty ahead of Tuesday’s U.S. Presidential election. Australia, which has largely dodged the latest outbreak of Covid-19 that is restricting mobility in Europe and the U.S., did not evade the effects of international market turmoil, but the sell-off here was less severe and more of a correction than a crash.

RareX, one of a small number of juniors now attempting to loosen Brazil’s grip on global supply of steel additive niobium, reports more “bonanza” grades of both that and rare earth oxides (reports Small Caps).

RareX, one of a small number of juniors now attempting to loosen Brazil’s grip on global supply of steel additive niobium, reports more “bonanza” grades of both that and rare earth oxides (reports Small Caps). The latest results from drilling at the Cummins Range project in the Kimberley region of Western Australia include 37m at 1.4% total rare earth oxides (TREO) and 0.2% niobium oxide. That intersection includes 7m at 3.6% (TREO) and 0.27% niobium, with mineralization beginning at 21m down hole.

BHP’s nickel chief paints very bullish outlook for his metal while Mincor tells Diggers & Dealers why it’s perfectly placed to cash-in on this forecast boom and Centaurus also aiming to help meet demand. Plus, Alkane and SolGold.

Diggers & Dealers was always going to be dominated by gold stories. But the nickel brigade, led by BHP’s boss of Nickel West, Eddy Haegel, made a good fist of diverting some of the attention of the 1900 delegates at the COVID-delayed conference. “You’ve heard me say this before - we are at the beginning of a revolution that will transform our world and materially increase demand for nickel. Nickel is a standout winner from a decarbonising world,” Haegel said.

The company on the cusp of joining the ranks of Australia’s nickel producers has described the reawakening of Kambalda’s nickel mines as the “third wave for nickel mining” in the Goldfields town (reports The West Australian).

The company on the cusp of joining the ranks of Australia’s nickel producers has described the reawakening of Kambalda’s nickel mines as the “third wave for nickel mining” in the Goldfields town (reports The West Australian). IGO and Andrew Forrest-backed Mincor Resources has a spring in its step after last month revealing plans for its nickel mines came roaring to life this year. That came with a final investment decision that would have the first nickel production late next year, and an initial five-year mine life with potential to be extended.

After a bumper year, the Goldfields air is thick with anticipation, if not planes. A “potential show-stopper” from Chalice and Greatland on finding gold in the Pilbara among the must-sees

Next week’s Diggers & Dealers bash beneath Kalgoorlie’s big blue sky will be a more sedate affair than usual. That’s a pity because there is lots for the annual gathering of mining and finance-types to celebrate. The Eastern State’s bloc of regular attendees at the three-day conference is trapped back home because of COVID-19, so it is case of them putting out the rubbish and feeding the cat rather than being free to enjoy a Kalgoorlie kebab at 3am.
