Gold is considered a safe-haven in the long term. With the COVID19 crisis and the travel restrictions, traditional buyers of raw gold bars and nuggets cannot conduct “cash and carry” in traditional gold producing countries.

Local miners now work with professional raw gold exporters who avail their gold to international markets to be sold and refined. This creates new opportunities for buyers of gold nuggets and raw dore bars also during an “almost” global shut down of commercial activities. Here is the latest deal selling raw gold bars and nuggets delivered CIF to your refinery anywhere worldwide.

An off market Gold transaction is now available through a well established commodity trader. Their main business, for years, is to export Coal, Zinc Ore, Lead Ore, Copper and Iron Ore to markets around the globe. They have been shipping significant quantities of Nigerian Lead ore to China since 2008 and are well placed in that market. With their mining contacts in West Africa (Nigeria Ghana) East and Central Africa - Cameroun and their team of trading experts they now avail CIF delivery to any major and recognized Refinery worldwide. They are reliable, experienced in international trade and capable of handling transactions up to 300KG a month.

The CIF price is LBMA based, with a 7% gross discount to the buyer and an option for a FIXED BID PRICE for 22, 23 and 24 carat.
