On the surface, all the typical omens of a bull rally in metals seem present: a drop in the dollar index, disappointing economic and jobs data in the US, and the escalating geopolitical tensions in key locations like Iran and Venezuela – which have pushed investors towards safe haven assets and pushed the price of gold up. The trend is likely to bolster further consolidation in the mining sector, analysts claim. But one notable M&A transaction has shaken up the industry, raising important questions about the long-term effects and consequences of that consolidation – as well as the extent to which assets like gold remain save havens, explains Angelos Damaskos, manager at Junior Gold Fund.
