1Mtpa processing plant and a highly prospective land package. CSD is

project) at the plant.
The copper price is renowned as the "bellwether" for base metals but it
also enjoys a strong relationship with gold. In 2009-2010 the two ran
pretty much in tandem but early in 2011 the copper price peaked well
ahead of gold and there followed a strong period of divide in the
relationship between November last year and early February 2013 the
copper price rose along a volatile path while the gold price continued
its downward draft.
Australian exploration company, Global Geoscience Ltd announced further
details of its June quarter exploration program in Nevada, USA and the
ongoing development of its Sara Sara project in Peru. Exploration
activities are currently focused on Global's Excelsior and Lone Mountain
projects in Nevada. As earlier reported, Canadian partner Osisko Mining
(USA) is fully funding development of the projects with a budget of
about A$500,000 for the June quarter.
Adelaide Resources is currently advancing exploration at the Alford West
prospect within the Moonta project area. Broad widths of high grade
copper and gold mineralisation have been intersected at shallow depths,
highlighting the prospectivity of this target. Significant opportunity
exists for further high grade results.
Having already proved itself as a major new player on the West African
oil and gas scene, NSX-listed African Petroleum is about to undertake an
exciting 12 to 24 Months that may see it drilling exploration well in
five separate countries while undertaking further work to prove up the
country-making potential of its offshore Liberian discoveries.

Pura Vida Energy NL is ideally positioned for its planned well to be
drilled in Morocco early 2014. The Company is free carried on two wells
(to a total cost of US$215m) and retains a 23% in the permit. In
addition to nearby drilling in Morocco, news flow related to its
recently acquired Nkembe block in Gabon will fill the gap between now
and drilling of the Toubkal prospect.
Maiden Bollinger Resource expected soon Sirius Resources NL continues to
report significant nickel and copper mineralisation within the
Bollinger deposit. The latest assay results from recent infill drilling
confirm more continuous, thick, high grade mineralisatIon, with nickel
grades over 5% and copper grades over 2%. The resource drill-out is now
nearing completion and is expected to be finished in the coming weeks.
Once all drill assays have been received Sirius will estimate the maiden
resource for the deposit, which could be released as early as July
2013.
The long-term chart for gold suggests that there is still tremendous upward potential for the price in the coming years.  If we focus in on the more medium to shorter-term outlook we find that when the price reached $1911 in September 2011 it encountered a speed resistance line and suffered a peak in momentum.  With marked similarities to the March 2008 peak the price entered a phase in much the same fashion as it did at that time.
