Feedback from one of the 1st users (beta 001):

To quote the cop in Superbad, that metric is ''superbadass!''. And fun.

Since we come to the junior producer field looking for correlation, this is definately right up a stock pickers alley. Definately a home run. ...

Very nice.


Gold and Silver Production Statistics

NOTE: Newmont Gold (NEM on the NYSE), which did at one time trade on the TSX and which still files reports via, is not technically a TSX/TSXv gold producer and was therefore removed from GoldMinerPulse statistics effective 6 March 2015. Previously the NEM statistics were incorrectly counted as part of the TSX/TSXv totals.

Production Based on Last/Latest Four Quarters

Using the most recently available quarterly production reports, the gold and silver stocks listed on the TSX/TSXv are reporting production totals on a rolling 4 quarters of:

  • Gold: 25.22M ounces (864.69 tons or 784.43 tonnes), a 1.5% change over the 4 quarters ending at the prior quarter.

  • Silver: 183.11M ounces (6,278.06 tons or 5,695.36 tonnes), a 1.7% change over the previous 4 quarters ending at the prior quarter.

The running totals for quarterly production numbers for companies with a quarter ending in the months of January, February and March 2015, along with the changes on a Quarter on Quarter (QoQ) basis, for TSX/TSXv Gold and Silver producers are:

Market Vectors Gold Miner ETF (GDX)

GDX is by far the largest gold equity ETF today - 15 May 2015 net assets were $6.4B U.S., roughly equal to 2% of the estimated total market capitalization of all of the world's gold and silver miners (public + private). And with more than $27B US in physical gold holdings, the GLD ETF is equal to approximately 10% of that world gold and silver mining sector.

Outlook For Gold and Gold Equities - 23 May view for the 29 May Close

back to top

Very little has changed from last week. A clear trend has yet to emerge.

Observations on the Week Ending 22 May

  • The GDX Visual Correlation chart shows that market cap weighted average of the GDX Producers on the TSX (dashed black line) is tracking gold moves very well and provide no hint of bias for higher or lower equity prices next week.

  • The U.S.D. index finished the week with a very strong up move suggesting an increased probability for weaker gold equity prices in the coming week. The GDX, GDXJ and SGDM ETFs are falling.

  • The Shanghai physical delivery from vault for the week ending 15 May (reporting is always on a one week delay basis) was 903 tonnes YTD, a 20.2% increase over the comparable 2014 YTD figures confirming continued strong demand in China.

  • GLD had an outflow of more than $300M for the week. After a strong inflow on 22 May the GDX is approximately even for the week while the GDXJ had an outflow of more than $30M.

  • SGE daily settlement volumes were mixed, well below year to date averages for most of the week and ending the week at the low end of monthly daily averages for year to date.

    Gold priced in Yuan Renminbi is neutral in that the current price is above the 6mth price but below the 12 month price.


On balance, the gold trend outlook remains very poorly defined with a slight overall bias towards lower prices. I will be watching the daily SGE settlement volumes and gold ETF flows for a break out signal etf daily money flows as well as for unexpected news that may finally create a well defined price trend.

A ? indicates that the closing data for the ETF is to be released - ETF updates happen typically after 8PM EST. Otherwise the cell is left blank if there was no change from the previous day.

POG % Chg is computed based on the Kitco gold spot price bid at TSX market closing time and the price at the previous TSX market close.

For GLD, a positive cell value indicated the value of the gold (in millions of dollars) added to the ETF while a negative cell value indicated the value of gold removed from the ETF. Values are computed from data provided by the GLD ETF operator.

For the gold equity ETF trading symbol columns, a positive cell value indicates the values of the equities (in millions of dollars) added to the ETF while a negative cell value (shown in red) indicates the value of the equities removed from the ETF.

Gold and Silver Miner Market Capitalization Estimates

TSX/TSXv Grouping TSX/TSXv Total Market Capitalization
(Millions of US$)
Gold & Silver Producers $83,351

Market Cap Estimate For the World's
Gold & Silver miners (Millions of US$)

Note: All TSX/TSXv companies with at least 12.5% of their total in situ metal value coming from either gold or silver and which match the category definitions, are included in the above table.

Gold & Silver Producers category includes those companies that report quarterly production counts and revenues for gold and/or silver production.

Gold & Silver Streamers category includes companies focused on creating gold/silver streams or royalty income flows.

Gold & Silver Developers category includes companies with an explicit plan to start production in the near term or which have a spending profile and work plans to imply potential future production.

Gold & Silver Explorers category includes companies that are primarily focused on expanding resource counts at one or more existing gold and silver projects without indicating plans for future production.

Generator and grass roots companies are not covered.

Market capitalization is always computed using closing market price (expressed in US$ using exchange rates in effact at market closing time) and the issued share of each company. Updates are made daily after the TSX market close.

TSX/TSXv Market Share Assumptions: the TSX/TSXv gold producers are estimated to represent approximately 33% of the world's gold producers since the TSX/TSXv gold producers report approximately 1/3 of the world's yearly gold production. The streamers, explorers and developers are estimated to represent very roughly 50% of the world total for companies in those groupings.

The Market Cap Estimate For the World's Gold & Silver miners is computed based on the actual TSX/TSXv market capitalizations, computed on a daily basis here using closing market prices and material filings as available at the TSX market closing time, and applying the market share assumptions detailed above.

Detailed fundamental metrics on the TSX/TSXv gold and silver miners, including per company details such as:

  • gold and silver reserves / resources breakdowns

  • enterprise value per ounce of gold reserve (or resource)

  • average ore value per tonne

  • breakdown of percentage of gold equivalent ounces by country (2 letter ISO codes)
