Max Resource 在南美洲未开发的铜金矿区发现机遇

2023.07.19 作为经济健康状况的领先指标,铜的表现经常受到密切关注,因为它是否能够预示即将到来的经济放缓,这是自去年以来一直存在的主题。 然而,最近铜价的上涨引发了人们的信念,即无论经济发生什么,铜的基本面都相当强大——甚至可能比大多数人想象的还要强劲。 由于对经济衰退的广泛担忧,铜价较 2023 年初的高点下跌了 17%,但随后出现反弹,上涨近 10%,至每吨 8500 美元附近。 卡森集团首席市场策略师瑞安·德特里克 (Ryan Detrick) […]

July 13, 2023


2023.07.13 在经济学中,“软着陆”广泛指的是在经历了一段成功避免衰退的增长期之后经济适度放缓。从隐喻上讲,它类似于该术语最初在航空领域的使用方式——飞行员试图让飞机平稳着陆而不坠毁。 当肩负着阻止经济因高通胀而过热的任务时,美联储等央行通常会提高利率,使其刚好足以引发经济放缓(即软着陆),但不足以引发严重的经济衰退(称为“硬着陆”)。 虽然定义“软着陆”的量化因素长期以来一直存在争议,但在失业率不大幅飙升(最好低于 5%)的情况下让通胀率回到或接近 2% 的目标通常被视为基本要求。 “软着陆”一词在前美联储主席艾伦·格林斯潘 (Alan Greenspan) 任职期间首次流行,人们普遍认为他在 1994 年至 […]

2023.06.17 随着清洁能源转型的快速推进,关键矿物现在处于国际讨论的前沿,因为它们是我们许多现代技术的基石,对国家安全和经济繁荣至关重要。 对于世界领先的经济体美国而言,确保这些矿产的可靠供应尤为重要,这不仅可以维持其主导地位,还可以摆脱对中国等主要竞争对手的供应依赖。 因此,该国一直忙于与其主要盟友联系,以加强关键矿物的供应并使其多样化。今年到目前为止,美国已与日本和澳大利亚签署了合作协议,以确保其拥有稳健的供应链和最新能源技术的专业知识。 日本的协议也有望成为备受期待的与欧盟达成协议的框架,该协议仍在谈判中。 早在 2022 年 6 月,在俄罗斯入侵乌克兰之后,美国及其七国集团伙伴已经启动了全球基础设施和投资伙伴关系 (PGII),以建立清洁能源供应链。他们还签署了矿产安全合作伙伴关系,以生产、加工和回收关键矿产。 这些举措标志着一种通常被称为“联合产业政策”的现象的出现,即各国在国际层面协调其产业战略并共同建立供应链。 约翰霍普金斯大学的一项研究发现,民主国家之间的伙伴关系将能够生产足够的矿物 […]

Prudent Minerals 坐拥哥伦比亚高品位黄金勘探目标

2023.05.30 已经面临黄金储量枯竭的金矿公司开始感受到在当前经济环境下进行整合以维持自身的压力,因此并购的势头越来越大。 自然而然地地,该行业将需要向高品位矿石丰富且金矿保证经济可行的地方集中。 另一个需要考虑的途径是在世界上资源最丰富但仍未充分开发的地区寻找金矿资产。在矿产丰富的南美洲大陆,哥伦比亚就是符合这一描述的一个国家。 在地理上,哥伦比亚是一个多元化的国家,拥有数千平方公里的未勘探前景土地,具有勘探金和铜等有价值矿产的巨大潜力。目前,该国只有 1.1% 的领土被生产阶段的矿业权占用,而只有 2.3% 被勘探项目覆盖。 根据哥伦比亚矿业法,勘探矿山的权利通过30年的特许经营协议获得,分为勘探、建设和开采三个阶段。一旦特许权进入采矿阶段,它可以再延长 30 年。 尽管哥伦比亚的黄金业务长期以来一直面临着严格的官僚主义和环境障碍,此外还有受到非正式矿工/犯罪分子袭击的威胁,但这并没有阻止矿业公司放弃其丰富的黄金资源。如今,哥伦比亚是仅次于秘鲁和巴西的南美洲第三大黄金生产国,年产量约为 […]
