Merger, we wrote: gold-industry follies gilded active year in M&A - "In a brisk year for mergers and acquisitions, nobody was much busier than Joe Conway, chief executive officer of Iamgold Corp.

The Toronto-headquartered gold mining company was involved in no fewer than three merger proposals - and still ended 2004 standing alone. At times the gold industry's matchmaking frenzy resembled a drawing-room comedy, with characters bursting onstage and rushing about, romancing other people's betrothed and slapping each other's faces in riotous confusion."

Madness of Hostile Bids - "For gold-stock investors and speculators, 2004 proved fascinating on multiple fronts. While gold stocks didn’t perform as well as they did in 2003 in general, they still offered returns far in excess of the mainstream stock markets for contrarians willing to buy during the wicked spring correction. And with the underlying gold bull still in Stage One, the best is almost certainly yet to come. As I reflect on this past year, one thing that really sticks out in my mind is the frenzy of gold-stock mergers and acquisitions. Of the 15 companies that make up the flagship HUI gold-stock index, an amazing 7 tried to acquire other gold or silver miners during the course of 2004! The fabled gold-stock bull is finally stirring up some excitement four years after it stealthily launched in November 2000." More
