PNG copper gold project at Wamum

CBY was granted the Wamum tenement today, which is ~20km northwest of the major Wafi-Golpu Project.

The Wafi-Golpu Project is 50% owned by ASX-listed gold behemoth Newcrest.

Here’s a key bit from the announcement:

The tenement covers two significant Cu-Au deposits at Idzan Creek and Wamum Creek, which are estimated to contain a combined 3.16Moz Au and 762kt Cu.

That’s a significant resource if CBY can get it off the ground.

The proximity to Newcrest’s operation is a bonus.

So, how are the gold and copper prices tracking?

It’s tapering off a bit, but I’m still bullish on both copper and gold.

It’s a fascinating indicator, but I think as a barometer of the bull/bear dynamic it may lose its relevance.

I think you could see both fear and greed at the same time in the market — such is the unprecedented level of cheap money out there.

Which makes CBY’s combination of resources so interesting.

Cheap money and infrastructure fuels copper, while at the same time spurring gold as a hedge against inflation.

This dual-sided appeal of CBY’s resource at Wamum makes it an intriguing project.

Two years from now, I see a both gold and copper (along with pretty much any other commodity) at lofty heights due to inflationary pressures.
