ASX gold stocks are back in vogue and these 4 stocks are benefitting

Nick Sundich Nick Sundich, October 30, 2023

ASX gold stocks dominated the winners’ list on Monday morning for two good reasons. First, because in a time of macroeconomic uncertainty, gold is perceived as a safe haven asset. And second, because several gold companies on the Australian bourse had good news for investors.

 

Tietto and Tempest lead the charge of ASX gold stocks

Tietto Minerals (ASX:TIE) is one of the few sub $1bn gold producers as well as the newest one focused on West Africa. This company told investors it received a takeover bid from Chinese mining investor Zhaojin Capital, which already was a 7% shareholder in the company.

Although Tietto told investors there was no certainty that there would be a binding deal and no action should be taken at this stage, investors sent shares up nearly 30% this morning, to nearly match the 58c per share takeover price. Despite today’s price rise, it is barely higher in 6 months after a production downgrade in early September scared investors.

Among explorers, Tempest Minerals (ASX:TEM) was the biggest winners, unveiling rock chip sampling results at its Yalgoo project in WA. In conducting rock chip sampling, Tempest is trying to identify targets for drilling next year. And it achieved some positive results, up to 7g/t gold, 0.2% copper and >60% iron. Like Tietto, Tempest shares had a healthy gain today, but shares have been headed downwards as investors faced uncertainty about the company’s future direction.

Other gold stocks with good news

Amongst producers, Ramelius (ASX:RMS) had good news in the form of its update for the September quarter (1Q24). Ramelius produced 55,523 ounces of gold for the quarter and generated A$44.3m in operating cash flow. Investors were told the company was on track to meet its guidance and that it would produce 60,000-70,000 ounces during the current quarter.

Amongst explorers, Queensland-focused company Killi Resources (ASX:KLI) unveiled the results of soil sampling at its Mt Rawdon project. It identified multiple extensive copper-gold-molybdenum anomalies at surface. It identified two targets to test for drilling.
