    • McEwen Mining (NYSE:MUX) fell 5.6% in today's trade after yesterday's news that 900 kg of gold-bearing concentrate containing 7K oz. of gold - ~$8.4M in potential revenue - was stolen from its refinery in Mexico's Sinaloa state.
    • Armed robberies of significant quantities of gold are not common, but operators in northern Mexico have been targeted in the past as the region is associated with cartels and gangs.
    • The robbery raises concerns about other companies with exposure in northern Mexico, which include AGI, AUQ, CDE, PPP and TGD; among those with operations nearby are GG, PAAS, GPL, OTCPK:FNLPF and OTCQX:SMNPF.

    • Primero Mining (PPP -2.8%) CEO Joe Conway says a fix is within reach for the company's troublesome Black Fox gold mine in Ontario, and expects to show signs of improved performance at the mine this year.
    • Once Black Fox is running smoothly, PPP will be eyeing potential acquisitions, Conway says.
    • "Black Fox really drives the bus” in terms of expectations for the share price, says a Dundee Capital analyst, who adds, “It looks like the worst has passed."
    • PPP forecasts gold production at Black Fox will rise to ~80K gold equiv. oz/year in 2015 from 73K last year; its San Dimas mine in Mexico should produce 180K oz. in 2015, although Conway says Black Fox has the potential to become "another San Dimas” as the company explores deeper.

    • Spot gold skids to its lowest since April 2010 at $1,137/oz., below production costs for seven of 19 mining companies tracked by Bloomberg, including Harmony Gold (HMY -1.8%) and Primero Mining (PPP -2%).
    • Harmony Gold said in its Q3 earnings report that all-in sustaining costs were $1,245/oz., while Primero reported all-in sustaining costs of $1,228; the most recent data from DRDGold (DRD -6.3%), AuRico Gold (AUQ +0.6%), Golden Star Resources (GSS +0.1%) and Alamos Gold (AGI -0.5%) also show costs higher than current prices.
    • Maison Placements Canada brokerage's John Ing says a "two-tier type of market" is developing, where one tier of companies having solid assets and lower costs and another group saddled with high-cost operations and stretched balance sheets.

    • Primero Mining (PPP +5%) says it expects to produce 220K-240K gold equiv. oz. at cash costs of $675-$725/oz. in 2014, a modest decrease in production and a modest increase in costs compared to previous estimates.
    • PPP slightly lowers production guidance for its recently acquired Black Fox complex in Ontario to 65K-75K oz. from a previous outlook for 70K-80K, at unchanged cash costs of $850-$900/oz., with all-in sustaining costs increasing to $1,400-$1,450/oz.
    • PPP also says new high-grade drilling results further expand the known mineralization at depth at Black Fox and provide additional confidence in the Grey Fox project.

    • Primero Mining (PPP +9.2%) says it has successfully produced its annual threshold of 3.5M oz. of silver from the San Dimas mine, and will now begin selling an estimated 1.25M-1.5M oz. of silver, 50% of the silver produced at San Dimas, at spot prices for its own account until Aug. 5.
    • PPP assumed the silver purchase agreement when it acquired San Dimas in 2010, which was renegotiated for PPP to participate in the silver produced above the annual threshold amount.

    • Gold miners already have recouped YTD more than a third of what they lost last year, and basic materials investor Malcolm Gissen thinks the rally may have a lot more room to run.
    • The co-manager of the Encompass Fund says it’s a great time to invest in gold miners; there’s a jump in merger activities in the sector as well as hostile takeover attempts, which be a sign that higher gold prices are ahead.
    • Adam Koos of Libertas Wealth Management prefers to wait to see a base creation and then breakout above bearish resistance lines and moving averages; when that happens, he likes AuRico Gold (AUQ) and Franco-Nevada (FNV).
    • Gissen suggests investors dip a toe in the water by buying some of the growing intermediate producers such as Primero Mining (PPP); among the larger producers, Goldcorp (GG) looks most attractive because of the projects it has and the cash flow it will generate this year.
