Which Junior Gold Company Will Be The Next Takeover Target?

In light of Goldcorp’s strong pursuit of Osisko over the last month, we had put together an extensive research on the resources of major and mid-tier gold miners.

Posted by:

We often hear that large gold producers are usually not the best explorers. As such, when it comes time to replenish or grow their resource base, they must look to M&A.

With the recent offer from Goldcorp to buy Osisko for $2.6 billion, we wanted to do the math and see how much gold the majors and mid-tiers actually have in the ground. In addition, we wanted to find how much of it was in undeveloped projects vs. current producing mines.

Key Metrics Before You Invest: ‘Skin in the Game’ and ‘Smart Money’

When searching for opportunities in the junior sector, we like the focus to be on quantitative and empirical data. Sure, everyone likes a good anecdote about geologists kicking over rocks in the middle of nowhere, but the truth is nothing makes us happier than cold, hard numbers.

Bitcoin, in just nine months, has done something absolutely tremendous in that respect. While increasing in parabolic fashion, it also managed to match up exactly with the 40 year gold chart – even to the most recent correction.

Putting the two charts side by side is simply eerie:

Bitcoin price vs. historical gold chart

In 1980, the gold price peaked at $850 ...
