Eldorado Is the Gold Standard

Eldorado Gold is one of the few gold miners that enjoys an economic moat.

Mentioned: ,

We believe  Eldorado Gold (EGO) has earned a narrow economic moat. While little has changed in recent years in regards to Eldorado's position within the gold mining industry, we have gradually developed a greater appreciation for the firm's ability to generate economic profits in a normalized gold price environment (which we presently assume to be roughly $1,200 per ounce).

Economic moats in mining are almost entirely predicated on sustaining a low-cost position, which in turn depends on three major factors: low production costs, long reserve lives, and prudent capital allocation.
