Gold on the rise over Trump rhetoric against Syria and North Korea - Mining Capital's Alastair Ford Mining Capital's Alastair Ford talks through the rise of gold on the back of tensions between US President Donald Trump and Syria as well as North Korea.

Ford asks: ''Is he feeling the pressure at home and so looking to divert attention by taking action abroad?''.

''This is the cue for investors to come into gold because they're looking for a bit of safety in this uncertain environment'', Ford says.

''I always like to mention Galantas Gold in particular because they're the only gold miner which is going to be incurring costs in sterling and selling its gold in sterling .... sterling is so weak against the dollar that that has a multiplier effect given that gold is also strong against the dollar''.

Asiamet's BKM project 'developing quite nicely', says analyst Paul Renken Paul Renken, VSA Capital's mining analyst and media commentator gives his view on developments at Asiamet Resources Limited's (LON:ARS) BKM project in Indonesia.

The company's told investors that ongoing resource definition drilling continues to intersect thick intervals of copper mineralisation.

Latest holes, BKM31900-02 and BKM1900-03, were both outside of the current BKM resource envelope suggesting they will contribute new resources.

''It's developing quite nicely ... all of the initial drilling is now being infilled with additional drilling in order to move it into the categories for which the feasibility study can be measured'', Renken says.

''It's definitely hitting the kinds of resources we thought it would ... very nice, very thick, very shallow and easy to treat''.
