Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Juira 23, 1972 THE LETHMIDGE HMALD Volatile price changes Gold stock investors warned By SANDRA INGALSBE TORONTO (CP) Recurr- ing bouts of gold fever on world metal markets hsve at- tracted intense interest in gold stocks, but analysts cau- tion that investors should be prepared for volatile price changes. The Toronto market's gold index has responded almost daily to the price fixing of gold bullion on the London free market, rising 65 per cent from its 1973 low to its high in May. Rosmar Financial Report says the latest surge can be attributed to speculative buy- ing in a major flight from currencies, notably U.S. dol- lars, into gold. "The key speculative factor in the golds is the fact that no one can predict with any gen- erally acceptable argument where the price of gold will be in a month, six months, or a year hence. There is a growing belief, however, that the price will probably range between and for some time to come." Rosmar says there is also "a strengthening body of high opinion that the monetary price of gold, which is cur- rently an ounce, must be sharply increased." The investment firm by- passes major producers and recommends three junior stocks for participation in the hot gold market "because even from their current rela- tively high levels there is fur- ther excellent gain potential, and because the initial outlay is more modest considering their price levels." Rosmor says Agnico-Eagle Mines in Joutel Township, Que., is being developed for production at a daily mill rate of tons and a cost esti- mated at million. The company is counting on get- ting its new pebble mill into production by the end of the year. The company projects an Operating profit of million with gold at av- erage, based on 90-per-cent recovery, a grade of .23 ounces and a cost factor of a ton. "One of the defects in this situation, however, is the 13.86 million shares out- to earn even 50 cents a share on that capital- ization means making a net profit of the order of mil- lion a year. It all depends on the price of gold. "Nevertheless, there's some glamor attached to probably the first nsw major gold mine the RIVIERA MOTOR HOTEL Welcomes you to Edmonton To help make your stay more would like to introduce you to all our facilities.

The stock closed Wednesday at Rosmar says Fafconbridge Nickel, which owns 68 per cent of Kiena Gold Mines, is studying the reserve situation on its idle Malartic, Que., gold property. Falconbridge argued until recently that the free market price of gold is too vulnerable to risk an expensive develop- Rising prices hit independent gas i station operators TORONTO (CP) Rising gasoline prices are making it almost impossible for Jack Syl- man, owner and operator of Jim Dandy Automotive Sup- plies, to predict profitable fu- ture in the'independent gas sta- tion business. Mr. Sylman and other inde- pendents have been using low- priced surplus gasoline to un- dercut brand-name dealers and capture about 30 per cent of the urban retail market and 10 per cent of the Canadian retail mar- ket. Now the refinery surplus has been reduced to a trickle and the independents can no longer advertise prices up to seven cents lower than brand-name stations. Ih some cases they are holding prices one or two cents lower by reducing profit mar- gins from about 4.5 cents to 2.5 cents a gallon. Mr. Sylman now depends on other business interests to sup- Price cuts for cars reaffirmed OTTAWA (CP) Trade Min- ister Alastair Gillespie reaffir- med the government's intention to hold automobile manufactur- ers to a commitment to reduce the price disparity between Ca- nadian-and American-built cars. Replying to a series of opposi- tion questioners in the Com- mons, Mr. Gillespie said, how- ever, that he is not prepared to that manufacturers roll back proposed price in- creases for 1974 models. Ed Broadbent awa-Whitby) said the Ford Mo- tor Company's recent announce- ment of a increase in the price of its new models violates the company's promise to re- duce the Canada-TJ.S. price dif- ferential.

He says gasoline supplies still are available, with no signs of an imminent shortage, but prices are rising. ADDS TO PRESSURE The suspension of the hidden support system by most major companies also is adding to the pressure. This system, which allows for price flexibility in price-war sit- uations and often supplied inde- pendent operators with free pumps and storage tanks, en- abled hundreds of independent gasoline retailers to establish flourishing businesses in the 1960S- The independent outlets, oper- ating on a cash basis, concen- trate mainly on gasoline sales and offer few other services. They operated with approval from the major oil companies until international oil price in- creases and shortages in the U.S. changed the supply and de- mand situation. Now that demand is more closely in line with Canadian output, producers are increas- ing prices to independents to bring them in line with those charged to regular outlets. Volkswagen expects to record loss WOLFSBURG, Germany (AP) Volkswagen says it ex- pects its American subsidiary will wind up in the red this year for the first time since VW started selling Beetles in the United States in 1950. VW yesterday blamed the upward revaluation of the West German mark and the deval- uation of the U.S. dollar for the expected loss. A spokesman for Volkswagen in the United States said the company anticipates selling Beetles this year, more than last year, but the monetary revaluations are ex- pected to offset the increased sales. A company spokesman said the mark and dollar changes had driven the price of a Beetle up to more expensive now than Ford's subcompact Pinto and General Motors' Vega. Last year Volkswagen of America and its enterprises cams out "even, which means we had no profit last the spokesman added. "Next year we are bound to work at a loss." In Toronto, a spokesman for Volkswagen Canada Ltd. said the company "made a small profit last year" and had no direct projections for tms year." Henry Sahrmann, manager of corporate relations, said "were confident that we will continue to sell our product in Canada, but the matter is far too com- plex to comment on." "We would be speculating on future currency developments. Food airlift operation set EDMONTON (CP) Two aircraft from Canadian Forces Base Namao and 50 servicemen are to participate in a month- long food airlift to six west African nations, the base an- nounced here.

The first aircraft to leave Can- ada departs from Canadian Forces Base Trenton and those from Namao, near Edmonton, leave a week later.

"But gold in the to range is a strong lure and we regard Kiena as one of the better exploration bsts in the gold speculative list." Kiena closed Wednesday on the Canadian Stock Exchange at Rosmar says that, unlike Fakonbridge-Kiena, Camflo Mines as a penny-priced jun- ior in the early 1960s decided to go ahead with production after it made a discovery similar to Kiena's in the Ma- lartic area, starting produc- tion in 1965 and sending out the ore for custom milling. "Indicative of how Cana- dian gold mines are 'coining money' is the Oamflo earn- ings report for the first quar- ter. Profit of 28.6 cents a share for the period compares with 8.5 cents a year ago- even for allowing for doubled income taxes. "We expect Camflo to at least double last year's earn- ings of 63 cents a share, even though the recovered grade will be slightly lower than in the first quarter."

Nearly a decade after explor- ation started, planners backed by an international consortium hope to be able to come to some preliminary decisions. Such decisions would concern investment and the feasibility of establishing rigs, pipelines, and shore facilities to process the fuel. B.O.C. of Australia, wholly- owned subsidiary of Woodside- Burmah Oil, is the operating arm of the consortium. The partners in the wells being drilled in the shelf are Wood- side-Burmah, which has a 50- per-cent interest, and Shell De- velopment B.O. Petroleum Development Aus- tralia, and Cal-Asiatic Oil, which share equally the other 50 per cent. PROMISING POTENTIAL The most promising potential appears to be for natural gas, which would be shipped in li- quefied form to energy users in the United States and Japan. Liquefied natural gas is re- garded as one answer to the problem of limiting pollution. Natural gas can be shipped In vast quantities, but at consider- able expense, because, when subjected to temperatures of minus 161 degrees Centigrade at atmospheric pressure, H li- quefies and has a volume 600 times smaller iban In its gaseous state. K. F. Wilson, executive chair- man of BOC, told a press semi- nar Woodside-Burmab faces "an immense evaluation prob- lem" in the two northwest-shelf gas fields. Confession no crime PADUA, Italy (AP) A local court has ruled that it Is not a crime to disclose conversations with Roman Catholic priests during confession even if the subject deals with sexual matters. The court ruling came in the case of two Italian journalists who had published Sex and the Confession in which they reveal comments made by hundreds of priests when asked during con- fession about sexual problems. Journalists Norberto Valen- tini, 34, and Clara di Meglio, 40, were ordered to stand trial last April after their book was pub- lished. The controversial book was seized from the book stores in some areas and the two authors charged with obscene publica- tion and contempt of religion. Both charges were dismissed by the local court. Valentin! and Miss di Meglio, both non-practicing Catholics, traveled around Italy faking confessions on sexual matters. They tape recorded the advice of the priests on questions mainly concerned with how couples can avoid pregnancy without breaking church rules. Pope Paul has ordered the ex- communicaition order also ap- plies to owners of book stores where the journalists' book is sold.
