Precious Metal Stocks For Your Super Account

A few months ago I posted about exposure to the precious metals bull market through superannuation accounts (Self Managed Super Fund not required if you have an account with a provider who allows direct investment into ASX300 companies or PMGOLD as Spectrum does):

A rebalance of the ASX300 occurring after close on March 16th will see several more Gold/Silver exposed resource companies added to the mix:

Abm Resources NL (ABU)
Azimuth Resources Limited (AZH)
Gold Road Resources Limited (GOR)
Noble Mineral Resources Limited (NMG)
Northern Star Resources Ltd (NST)
Papillon Resources Limited (PIR)
Red 5 Limited (RED)
Tanami Gold NL (TAM)

One of the previously listed companies that will be removed is:

Platinum Australia Limited (PLA)

And those companies which are still included (may not be every one):

Adamus Resources Ltd (ADU)
Alacer Gold Corp. (AQG)
Ampella Mining Ltd (AMX)
Gryphon Minerals Ltd (GRY)
Independence Group NL (IGO)
Indophil Resources NL (IRN)
Integra Mining Limited (IGR)
Intrepid Mines Limited (IAU)
Kingsgate Consolidated Ltd (KCN)
Kingsrose Mining Limited (KRM)
Medusa Mining Limited (MML)
Newcrest Mining Ltd (NCM)
OceanaGold Corporation - CDI (OGC)
PanAust Ltd (PNA)
Perseus Mining Limited (PRU)
Ramelius Resources Ltd (RMS)
Regis Resources Ltd (RRL)
Resolute Mining Ltd (RSG)
Rex Minerals Ltd (RXM)
Silver Lake Resources Ltd (SLR)
St Barbara Limited (SBM)
Teranga Gold Corporation (TGZ)
Troy Resources NL (TRY)

The above list results in over 10% of companies in the ASX300 having heavy precious metals exposure. Not surprising given Australia's resource rich land and I expect the number of Gold/Silver related companies in the ASX300 to increase as the price of the metals continues to climb.

I'm currently holding IGR, KCN, PRU, SLR and TRY in my Super, but will be researching and considering the new companies available in the ASX300 in the near future.

  1. NST has been great lately, glad to see it make the 300.

    1. NST and RED are on the top of my list for researching. Both look very promising on the surface.

  2. Thanks a lot for the info re: precious metals in super. This is something I've been wanting to do for a while.
