Urban mining has long-term potential to contribute significantly to gold supply

12TH JUNE 2015 BY: ILAN SOLOMONS CREAMER MEDIA STAFF WRITER @KMGGold excerpt. http://on.fb.me/1GVZiKr @MiningWeeklyCA @MiningWeekly http://bit.ly/1KL7Aqa

KMG Gold featured in Mining Weekly Article

...US- and Canada-based precious metals and minerals recycler KMG Gold Recycling president Michael Gupton says, if gold stays at around $1 200/oz, this will encourage more people to sell their gold.

"In Canada, our customers monitor not only the price of gold but also the value of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar. In the last five months, we have seen the Canadian dollar decline against the US dollar, therefore, in Canada, gold is selling for around C$1 500/oz, which is sufficient to trigger small and medium-sized businesses to sell their gold reserves," he points out.

Gupton adds that the consumer market is KMG's primary source of recycled gold, owing to individuals selling their scrap jewellery. "In the industrial market, we receive large volumes of gold from jewellers who sell their industrial vacuums and bench sweeps, as well as dentists and dental technicians selling grindings, sprues and dental industrial vacuums," he states.

KMG also recycles platinum-group-metals products such as thermal couple wires and plati- num labware crucibles. "We always try to find solutions to recycle precious metals wherever we can. Our latest solution is for recovery level silver content materials, such as the silver sludge from old X-ray films, which, in the process, destroys unwanted old X-rays that doctors have an obligation to effectively dispose of owing to their confidentiality requirements," Gupton points out.

KMG's gold processing facilities are located in North Dakota, in the US, and Winnipeg, Canada...

How Does Gold Change Colours?

Have you ever been confused by the terms white gold, green gold, and rose gold? All real gold is yellow, isn't it, so how do other colours fit in? Those 'other' colours of gold are alloys, new metals that are created by combining two or more different metals.

Chances are the ring on your finger is marked 18K, 14K, or 10K to indicate how much pure gold is present in the mix.
24K gold is pure gold.
18K gold contains 18 parts gold and 6 parts of another metal(s), making it 75% gold.
14K gold contains 14 parts gold and 10 parts of another metal(s), making it 58.3% gold.
12K gold contains 12 parts gold and 12 parts of another metal(s), making it 50% gold.
10K gold contains 10 parts gold and 14 parts another metal(s), making it 41.7% gold.

#Nickel can be mixed with gold to create a white colour, but be aware that nickel can cause dermatitis in some people (nickel is a fairly common allergen).
#Palladium is another metal used to create white gold alloys. Related to #platinum, it is more expensive than nickel, but is less likely to cause allergic reactions than nickel.
#Copper is added to make many gold-coloured alloys, but additional copper creates pink and rose tones -- the more copper, the deeper the effect.
Greenish shades are created by adding #silver to gold.

KMG Gold Sponsors 2nd Annual Attire to Inspire Fashion Show

KMG Gold attends Easter Seals Manitoba Fashion ShowFor the second year in a row, and since its inception, KMG Gold was a proud sponsor of the SMD Foundation and KMG Gold attends Easter Seals Manitoba Fashion ShowEaster Seals Manitoba's second annual Attire to Inspire Fashion Show. This exciting fundraiser raised money for children, youth and adults with disabilities in Manitoba.

We love giving back to a good cause and this year was even better than last year because we were able to make it out to the event this time! Project Specialist Tasha DiLoreto (that's me!) and Office Manager Jodi Micelli both attended and we got to see a runway of beautiful clothing and local celebrities, not to mention the delicious food and wine that we were served.

KMG Gold was named the Inspire Sponsor of the show which was held in a new venue this year because it had expanded so much since last year. It took place at the Qualico Family Centre in the Assiniboine Park and 144 people attended the sold out show. The fashion show featured local clothing from several small boutiques in Winnipeg and all of the celebrities in attendance were also local Winnipeg persoKMG Gold attends Easter Seals Manitoba Fashion Shownalities, like Blue Bombers teammates, local news anchors and local politicians.KMG Gold attends Easter Seals Manitoba Fashion Show

We were so happy to be able to support such a fantastic cause and we can't wait to see the show again next year. Our guess is that it will expand again since it was such a fun evening, which is always appreciated in the cold Winnipeg winter!

In the meantime, we'll continue to support Easter Seals Manitoba in a new way: the Drop Zone Challenge! Come read about our quest to watch our boss Michael Gupton rappel down the side of one of Winnipeg's tallest buildings and help us reach our goal of raising $1,500.

Gold Gossip: Earthquakes and Gold

KMG Gold Gold Buyers Gold Gossip Blog Series EarthquakesGold can be found across the globe but did you know that some experts believe that earthquakes can actually create new gold deposits? The latest in the KMG Gold Gold Gossip blog series is all about the role that earthquakes can play in gold production.

In the March 17, 2013 issue of the journal Nature Geoscience, it was reported that the water that is found in the faults created by earthquakes will vapourize during an earthquake and can create new gold deposits. The lead author of the study, Dion Weatherly, a geophysicist at the University of Queensland in Australia, believes that this theory offers an explanation for the link between gold and quartz found in many of the world's gold deposits.

When an earthquake hits, it moves along fault lines in the ground. Large faults can have many smaller fractures along their length which are connected by jogs that appear as rectangular voids. Water often lubricates the faults and fills in these fractures and jogs. And since these are often six miles underground, under very high temperatures and pressures, the water carries high concentrations of carbon dioxide, silica and precious metals like gold.

As the fault jog opens wider during an earthquake, the water inside of this void immediately vapourizes and forces silica (which forms quartz) and gold out of the fluids and onto nearby surfaces.

But don't get too excited because the amount of gold left behind after an earthquake is extremely small and the underground liquids only carry one part per million of the precious metal. However, these deposits can build up over time and can even occur with earthquakes with a magnitude smaller than 4.0. After all, the quartz-linked gold deposits are what sparked historic gold rushes like the ones in California and the Klondike, with prospectors tracing the gravels back to their sources, where hard-rock mining continues today.

The above picture is an example of what gold found in quartz looks like. This is an extreme example, but you never know what you might find!

Stay tuned for KMG Gold's next blog post, published every Wednesday. If there's a topic you'd like to read about, share your thoughts in the comments below or via Facebook or Twitter.

Gold Prices

The London Gold Fixing is the most common benchmark for the price of gold. The London Gold Fix refers to a twice daily telephone meeting of committee members from five bullion trading companies on the London Bullion market.

Representatives from the five firms meet twice daily to set the price of gold bullion. However, gold trading goes on world over based on the intra-day spot price, which is typically taken from over-the-counter gold-trading markets globally.

Recent Price Increases

The recent increase in the price of gold can perhaps be traced back to 2008, when the gold price went above US$1,000 to peak at US$1,004.38. However, after the March 2008 increase, Gold prices once again fell to a low of US$712.30 per ounce.

But it wasn’t long before the prices begun to rise again in late February 2009. Towards this time, the gold price provisionally went above US$1000 but later experienced a slight decline towards the end of the first quarter of 2009. By the end of 2009, the earlier March intra-day spot price record of US$1,033.90 was surpassed numerous times in October.

The price of gold effectively began climbing new highs in late 2009, peaking at about US$1226 before a sudden slight decline. However, as of August 19, 2011, the price of gold had peaked at a new all time high of US$1852.00 at the London Gold Fix.

A number of factors account for the fluctuating price of Gold.

Like any other goods, the price of gold is largely determined by speculation, supply and demand. On the one hand though, saving and disposal also affect greatly the price of gold more than its consumption. The fact is, most of the world’s gold ever mined can be found in bullion bars or jewelry, but with minimal value in terms of gold’s fine weight. As of the end of 2006, estimates indicate that all gold ever mined globally summed up to 158,000 tons.

Considering the fact that vast amounts of gold are stored above ground than annual gold production, the gold price is mainly driven by alternating sentiment (demand), as opposed to annual production (supply).

Estimates from the World Gold Council indicate that annual mine production of gold in recent years has been around 2,500 tons. Out of this amount, about 2,000 tons goes into the jewelry and dental industry and a further 500 tons is used by retail investors and exchange traded gold funds.

There has never been a better time to sell gold given the high price of gold currently in the international bullion market. Generally, the price of gold has also historically gone up in uncertain economic situations, such as inflation, as investors rush to hedge against financial losses.

Gold futures close at a two-week high. Gold tallies two-session win of nearly $47; silver also rallies

KMG Gold
SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — Gold futures closed at their highest level in two weeks Wednesday, with global-debt troubles helping it tally a two-session win of nearly $47 an ounce.

Gold for August delivery GC1Q -0.06% closed up $16.50, or 1.1%, at $1,529.20 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract, which earlier touched a high of $1,534.50, marked its highest close since June 22.

Prices jumped more than $30 an ounce in regular trading on Tuesday, buoyed by safe-haven buying as Europe’s debt issues reemerged as a concern for investors.

“The persistent debt problems in both Europe and the U.S. are a big part of gold’s gains this week,” said Peter Grant, senior metals analyst at USAGold-Centennial Precious Metals Inc.

“It’s quickly becoming a question of credibility,” he said. “As the troika flails about trying to mitigate the Greek crisis without creating a default, they erode market confidence. That waning confidence in the troika has resulted in contagion to Portugal in the wake of yesterday’s downgrade.”

On Monday, the Standard & Poor’s credit-rating firm signaled that a plan to roll over Greek-government debt would constitute a “selective default.” Then on Tuesday, Moody’s Investors Services downgraded Portugal’s credit rating by four notches to speculative grade.

Also contributing to gains in gold is the local-government-debt story in China, said Grant: “Investors are worried that if China turns inward to address their own debt woes, it may be at the expense of Europe and America.”

The People’s Bank of China lifted lending and deposit rates 0.25 percentage point on Wednesday, marking the third such adjustment this year. Read about the China rate hike.

Seasonal surge

The focus, however, remains on debt problems in Europe and the U.S.

“Gold’s current strength signals that something’s very seriously amiss on both sides of the Atlantic,” said Adrian Ash, head of research at BullionVault.com, an online service for gold-bullion trading and ownership.

He points out that gold bulls typically take a holiday in July through September, thanks primarily to the seasonal lull in Indian demand but also thanks to the broader “sell in May” drop-off in all financial trading.

“But if Greece, Portugal and the U.S. debt-ceiling ruckus don’t allow that typical pullback to come through, gold prices could run straight onto their very typical autumnal surge,” said Ash. “India’s festive demand will then return, running straight onto China’s heavy New Year gold buying in January/February.”
Debt and jobs data

For now, U.S. and euro-zone debt looks likely to dominate traders’ views in the coming days, but players will also be paying close attention to key U.S. jobs data this week, and to Thursday’s rate meetings by the European Central Bank and Bank of England, said James Moore, analyst at TheBullionDesk.com, in a note to clients Wednesday.

Weekly filings for unemployment benefits are due out from the Labor Department on Thursday, followed by figures on U.S. joblessness and growth in nonfarm payrolls for June on Friday.

Gold prices gained more ground shortly after the Institute for Supply Management said Wednesday that its U.S. services-sector index for June fell to 53.3% from 54.6% in May. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch had expected a dip to 54%; a reading over 50% indicates that more firms in the survey are expanding than contracting.

In other metals action on Wednesday, September silver /quotes/zigman/704345 SI1U +0.09% rallied 51 cents to close at $35.92 an ounce, while September copper  HG1U +0.07% declined 0.5 cent to $4.33 per pound.

September palladium PA1U -0.49% finished at $769.15 an ounce, down $4.05, while October platinum PL1V -0.06% declined $2.20 to end at $1,731.20 an ounce.

Platinum and Palladium Fixings Price Explained

The Fixing price represents the matching of orders from customers throughout the world. The Fixings make it possible for any interested party, be they supplier, consumer, dealer or investor, to trade at the price at which every current interest is satisfied.

KMG Gold Recycling posts the LPPM fixings and uses the fix prices for buying and selling platinum and palladium..

The system of Fixings is recognised as providing a valuable reference point, which is of particular benefit in volatile market conditions.

All deals are based on the published Fixing price. The Fixing price is immediately transmitted by the international news agencies and is a respected reference price used by industrialists and producers worldwide.

Above all, the Fixing procedure is simple, easy to understand and ensures the broadest possible participation in the market.

The Fixings commence at 9.45 am and 2.00 pm London time and take place on every day on which members are open for dealing in London. They are conducted by telephone. Dealing is in respect only of brands acceptable as good delivery under the London/Zurich Good Delivery list for platinum and palladium as in effect from time to time.

The Fixing members elect a chairman, who presides over the Fixing. At the commencement of each Fixing the chairman announces an opening price which is relayed to the members’ dealing rooms. This is in turn relayed to the customers of members and, on the basis of orders received, members declare as a buyer or seller. Provided both buying and selling interests are declared, members are then asked to state the amount in which they wish to trade. If the amounts of buying and selling do not balance, the same procedure is followed again at higher or lower prices until a balance is achieved. The Fixing price should be the price at which all buying and selling orders declared by members at the Fixing can be matched and it is the responsibility of the Chairman of the Fixing to determine when this occurs.

A feature of the Fixings is that customers may be kept advised of price changes throughout and may alter their instructions at any time until the price is fixed. If all orders cannot be balanced at any price the Fixing price shall be determined by the Chairman of the Fixing, at his discretion, having due regard to prevailing bids and offers. Exceptionally a pro-rata settlement may be necessary. Buying and selling orders are expressed in U.S. dollars per troy ounce.

Fixing members’ customers who sell at the Fixing receive the Fixing price without deduction of commission. The commission payable by Fixing members’ customers who purchase at the Fixing is by negotiation.

Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, settlement shall be made two business days after the date of the contract and for settlement purposes Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays in London, Zurich and/or New York are to be considered non- working days. Unless otherwise agreed delivery shall be made at the vaults of the member, in London or Zurich.
