The gold mining stocks we have identified have low All-in Sustaining Costs (ASIC) relative to their peers

SmallCapPower | May 18, 2018: Gold prices continue to decline, having decreased 4.4% M/M, from US$1,350 last month to US$1,290 today, including a US$30 drop over the past three days. As gold prices generally increase in times of economic and political instability, investors may be reassured by European countries refusing to sanction Iranian oil despite U.S. challenges, and progress towards a North Korean peace deal, although both deals are on shaky ground. The gold mining stocks on our list today are expected to produce this year at an all-in sustaining cost of US$800/oz, as compared to their peers, which are guided to produce at US$950/oz.
