Gold discovery rates are decreasing even as exploration spending in the industry reached a record $8 billion last year, according to Jamie Sokalsky, chief executive officer of Barrick Gold Corp., the world’s largest producer.

There were three discoveries last year, compared with 11 in 1991, and none of those can be described as “supergiant,” or holding more than 20 million ounces, Sokalsky said at a conference in Hong Kong. Breakeven costs were rising, he said today, predicting gold’s bull market shows no signs of ending.

Gold is poised for a 12th annual gain, driven by increased investor and central-bank purchases as governments around the world boost stimulus to revive their economies. Global gold mine output may increase 0.7 percent in 2013, the slowest pace since 2008, according to Barclays Plc, which forecasts that total physical supply may shrink 0.4 percent next year. A further rally may not spur much higher output, he told the conference.

“I don’t see a surge in gold production if we saw a gold price of $3,000,” Sokalsky said. “At a higher gold price, we’d still be experiencing the same challenges. I’d suggest there’d be very limited response to that higher gold price.”

Gold for immediate delivery, which climbed to a record $1,921.15 an ounce on Sept. 6, 2011, traded at $1,725.97 at 6:02 p.m. in Hong Kong after rising 10 percent this year. The run of annual gains is the best performance since at least 1920.

‘Getting Harder’
“It’s getting harder to find large deposits and to get those deposits into production takes at least twice as long as it might have taken a decade ago,” Sokalsky said yesterday in an interview. “We’re not going to see new mines coming in as fast as we thought to replace old mines that are closing.”

World gold-mine production may increase to 2,672 metric tons next year from an estimated 2,652 tons in 2012, according to data from Barclays in a Nov. 8 report. Global scrap supply may decline to 1,636 tons from 1,671 tons, reducing total supply to 4,308 tons in 2013 from 4,323 tons, according to Barclays.

“Getting mines permitted, dealing with the government and the communities, environmental issues, all of that takes so much longer,” said Sokalsky, who took over as CEO in June after his predecessor Aaron Regent was fired. “It also costs multitudes more to build a mine and to finance that.”

Barrick reported third-quarter earnings on Nov. 1 that missed analysts’ estimates after mining costs increased more than expected and production fell. Shares (ABX) of the Toronto-based company have declined 22 percent this year.

Xmet extends its agreement to purchase Brionor’s Pitt Gold Project’s 100,000oz. Inferred and 156,000oz. Indicated Au
Toronto ON – October 1, 2012 - Xmet Inc. (“Xmet” or the “Company”) (TSXV-XME, OTCQX-XMTTF) is pleased to announce that it has extended the closing date for its purchase of the Pitt Gold Project from Brionor Resources Inc. (“Brionor”) to December 17, 2012. Xmet requested the extension of the Pitt Gold acquisition so that it will close concurrently with Xmet’s acquisition of Clifton Star Inc.’s (“Clifton Star”) Duquesne Mine property, announced in a news release dated September 20th, 2012. Xmet’s acquisitions of the 100% owned Pitt Gold and Duquesne Mine properties will consolidate all of the Duquesne District’s NI 43-101 compliant and contiguous gold resources to 1,233,000 ounces inferred and 355,000 ounces indicated.

NI 43-101 technical reports for Xmet’s Duquesne Ottoman, Clifton Star’s Duquesne Mine property and Brionor’s Pitt Gold Project are available under their respective corporate profiles at www.sedar.com. To the best of the Xmet’s knowledge, information, and belief, there is no new material scientific or technical information that would make the disclosure of the mineral resources, mineral reserves or results of a preliminary economic assessment set forth in the Technical Report published by Brionor inaccurate or misleading.
The Pitt Gold resource aligns with Xmet’s Stinger Zone where Xmet has delineated a substantial gold resource. The intervening area has been insufficiently drill tested, mainly due to drill permitting complexity related to positioning of drill collars, an issue that will be solved by the purchase of the Pitt Gold Project. Between the Pitt and Stinger zones there are over 900 metres of strike along this horizon and at depth that are open for additional exploration and discovery. With the completion of the acquisition of the Pitt Gold Project, drill permitting issues will be largely eliminated and this target area will be a focus of our exploration in the near future.
In exchange for 100% ownership of the Pitt Gold Project, Xmet has agreed to issue Brionor a maximum of 10.56% of its outstanding shares after Xmet has exercised its option from Globex and completed the concurrent Duquesne Mine acquisition from Clifton Star. Completion of the
Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, the exercise of
Xmet’s option to purchase a minimum 75% interest in Duquesne-Ottoman Project (see Xmet’s
press release dated March 5, 2012), obtaining any necessary approvals, as well as the
acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”).

Xmet Receives Results of Geomet Study on Duquesne-Ottoman; High Metallurgical Recoveries Expected
Toronto ON – November 7, 2012 - Xmet Inc. (“Xmet” or the “Company”) (TSXV-XME, OTCQX-XMTTF) is pleased to report the results of a mineralogical study (Geomet Study) carried out by Terra Mineralogical Services Inc. on samples collected from the mineralized zones on the Duquesne-Ottoman Property.
“We are very pleased with the results of this study because it indicates that the gold mineralization at Duquesne-Ottoman occurs as free gold and is not associated with arsenic, nor is it refractory”, commented Charles Beaudry, the President and CEO of Xmet, adding that “the gold occurs mainly at grain boundaries so it may be easily liberated by a moderate fine primary grind. We also have the option of floating and regrinding the sulphides to increase our overall recoveries. The great thing about these conclusions is that they come from the study of 35 polished sections made from samples collected throughout the mineralized zones. Conventional metallurgical testing will be done as the project advances but already we have some idea of our expected gold recoveries and where we could get improvements. Our next goal is to bring the Duquesne District project to a Preliminary Economic Assessment, and this Geomet Study assists us in the conceptualization of the resource processing methodology.”
According to the study, the main gold carrier in samples is native gold with silver also present and occurs mainly in electrum and in silver-telluride minerals. Locally the silver-telluride minerals occur as coarse grains (“nuggets”) but otherwise the gold as well as the silver is fine grained (between 2.6 to 4.6 microns). Although generally fine grained, the gold occurs at grain boundaries over 90% of the time which suggest that metallurgical recoveries should be excellent provided sufficient grinding is applied to the ore. The study also found a small amount of mercury telluride mineral grains. This will be the subject of more study as the project develops.
Two process routes are suggested by the results. Whole ore cyanide leach after grinding to 55 to 60 microns or alternatively a coarser grind followed by flotation of sulphides and regrinding of sulphides to 8 to 10 microns and cyanidation of the sulphides to liberate some of the gold that occur encapsulated within sulphides mineral grains followed by cyanidation of the sulphides.
Quality Assurance and Quality Control
Sampling of drill cores was carried out on site by Terra Mineralogical Services Inc. with the assistance of Xmet geologists. Approximately two inch drill core samples were collected from each of 35 selected intervals from 13 diamond drill holes that intersected one or another of the Fox, Liz, Shaft or South Shaft Zones. Polished thin sections were prepared, and the entire surface of each section was scanned to identify gold-bearing minerals and associated gangue
phases.
These results are based on solid data but remain predictions that need to be followed and confirmed by metallurgical testing. More test work is planned for the coming year that will investigate some of the questions raised by this study.

Building on its successful exploration on the Duquesne-Ottoman Property where Xmet took a small historic resource and in 18 months expanded that into a NI43-101 compliant 853,000 inferred gold ounces in 4.1 million tonnes grading 6.36 g/t Au, the company has signed agreements with its adjacent neighbors that will add 355,000 ounces of indicated gold resource in 2.0 million tonnes at 5.9 g/t Au and a further 380,000 gold ounces of inferred resources in 2.6 million tonnes at 4.4 g/t Au. This transaction will allow Xmet to take control of over 8 kilometres of strike on the Porcupine-Destor fault and open the immediate exploration potential to significantly add ounces by exploring the boundary zones between the properties and the extensions around the old shaft on the Duquesne mine property.

Our Flagship Project: Duquesne-Ottoman (Rouyn-Noranda)
Located between Clifton Star’s 3 previously producing mines in the heart of the world class Porcupine-Destor
mining district which has produced 83M oz. gold historically
Very favourable mining and exploration logistics with paved road access and an abundant specialized workforce
A NI 43-101 compliant inferred resource of 853,000 oz. Au (uncut) or 727,000 oz. Au (top cut to 30g/t Au) @
6.36g/t (uncut) or 5.42g/t (cut) Au was announced September 2011.
2011’s 13,000m drill campaign resulted in a 62% increase from our previous resource announcement in
September 2010
Additional 13,000m drill campaign is aimed at increasing our Inferred resource base to beyond 1,000,000
ounces at similar grades
Huge Blue Sky on the property, and
