Once completely off the radar in the financial media, gold is staging a comeback and breaking through multiple resistance points in a time when political uncertainty dominates the headlines. But it’s more than just a crisis hedge: with the right strategy, you can not only generate strong returns from gold’s rise, but you can even magnify your gains through the power of leverage.
With this in mind, Portfolio Wealth Global had a serious talk about precious metals and miners with Rich Munson, the CEO of Sandspring Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: SSP, OTC: SSPXF), a Canadian-listed junior gold mining company leading the responsible development of South America’s emerging western Guyana gold district.
Mr. Munson has been a commodities expert and a natural resources legend since the 1980s, and he has been involved with the Toroparu Project since 1999 through ETK, Inc., a Guyana corporation formed when he and John Adams obtained the rights to the land concession now known as Toroparu.
Rich Munson became the CEO and a Director of Sandspring in 2009, when it acquired the Toroparu Gold Project. Active in the natural resources sector for over 35 years, he began his career as a taxation lawyer. In 1985, he joined the Energy Fuels Corporation group of companies, where he is now a Director and the Executive Vice President.

As expected, Portfolio Wealth Global’s conversation with Mr. Munson quickly turned to the topics of the economy and precious metals. According to Munson, things have changed a lot over time: previous generations preferred to invest in tangible goods that they could look at and hold in order to understand their value. This viewpoint, however, has diminished in recent history, to the point where in 2016 some people were declaring gold as “dead.”
At that time, some commentators were even saying that there was no reason for physical gold anymore and that the U.S. dollar was just as good as gold. But now, with all of the economic challenges we’re facing in the slowing global economy, investors need an investment that is tangible and will continue to hold its value.

According to Munson, we should see some renewed interest in gold – and for some very good reasons, frankly. We’re living in a time when the level of U.S. debt has exceeded $21 trillion, a completely unmanageable scenario, and the ratio of debt to GDP has surpassed 100%.
On top of that, other countries that have to repay debt in U.S. dollars have been hurt tremendously by this, according to Munson, and yet they’ve all incurred tremendous amounts of debt. America continues to print money, and the only thing that’s certain in 2019 is that the debt will continue to mount.

And so, what gold provides right now is a solid long-term growth profile, according to Munson. That’s where gold has significant value: it’s a safe-haven that should be part of everyone’s investment portfolios, especially in today’s particularly unsafe economic environment.
As Mr. Munson explains it, there’s an opportunity to get excellent leverage on gold’s price increase compared to owning the commodity itself. The reason is that the increase in the price of gold goes nearly 100% to the bottom line of the gold company, especially if the company can produce gold at less than gold’s prevailing market price.
This points to two essential aspects to look at when evaluating a gold company: the amount of gold that can be produced, and how much it costs to produce it. We agree with Munson that Sandspring Resources has the ability to excel in both of those aspects of the gold mining business; it’s only one of the many reasons we’re long-term bullish on SSP/SSPXF stock.
