PORTFOLIO ATTRIBUTION COMMENTS:
Fidelity Select Gold Fund has taken a new position in Osisko Development Corp. Osisko Development Corp. has recently completed a 3:1 consolidation and has a new emphasis on dilution control and cash flow development with several near-term production projects in the pipeline. The company has also recently completed acquisition of the high-grade gold producing Trixie Mine property in the Tintic Mining District of Utah, which will advance its profitable production profile.
Invesco Gold & Special Minerals Fund has again had significant portfolio turnover. The Fund has increased its holding of Mineral Alamos, Inc. having recently acquired an additional 1,900,00 shares. Minera Alamos continues to report on development and optimization of it’s Santana Gold Mine. The Fund has sold, or relocated, all of its holding in New Found Gold Corp. which at October 31st, 2021 stood at 870,000 shares valued at $6,769,635 USD (January 31st,2022 – $0). The Fund sold its position in Ganfeng Lithium Co. Ltd., which is listed in Shanghai and headquartered in China, and acquired a new holding in Lithium Americas Corp. This may be evidence of the growing trend towards resource nationalism.
Most gold fund portfolios have minimal exposure to Russian sanctions. Russian gold refineries have been suspended from London’s gold market, the world’s largest, suggesting that the supply of gold may become more constrained as demand is increasing.
