Last year, San Gold Corp reported a record production for the company in Q3 of 27,084 oz. at it's Rice Lake gold Complex near the town of Bissett, Manitoba. (photo)
This company continues to grow its production and its resource base, in the largest gold field discovery in Manitoba history.
However, 2013 has been a very trying time for Sangold investors as the stock has plumetted from $1.11 to as low as .09c this summer. It traded this morning at 14c per share. The market cap is now at $47m
Great investors from Sir John Templeton to Warren Buffett have often said that the time to buy is when there is "blood in the streets" and for long suffering Sangold shareholders, it certainly seems there is blood in the streets. I have been buying SGR shares all summer, tripling my investment in what I see as a solid, mid tier miner, with first mover status and a solid operation, in a safe and stable country with a history of supporting such mining endeavers. This, at a time when gold and gold miners are finding strong support in every market on the planet.
Having regard to the gold majors propensity for taking over such growing operations, It would not surprise me to see Sangold swept up should merger mania strike the majors as the price of gold spikes into year end 2013. Majors mostly increase their production and resource base through acquisitions as it is often cheaper for them to buyout such operations than it is to find and develop them.
Disclosure: I own San Gold stock and I continue to average in on dips.
If San Gold is not on your precious metals stock radar, maybe it should be.
