Gold investors had shaky feet immediately before the Federal Reserve’s policy announcement Wednesday. As bullion tumbled, so did gold stocks. The selloff provided a buying opportunity for Continental Gold board chair Robert Allen as he snagged 50,000 shares at $6.55. The purchase lifted his holdings to 38.7 per cent of Continental’s quoted market value.
This summer, Continental released drill results from its Colombian Buritica project. One intersection included three metres of 2,106.1 grams per tonne of gold and 738.7 grams per tonne of silver. The company raised $68.4-million following the news.
