Mining stocks are notorious for moving with the price of metals themselves. When the pandemic started last year, the price of mining stocks fell down quite a bit. That was until investors realized the value of the assets. This is when the sector for mining stocks began rapidly increasing in value. The most popular type of mining assets is gold stocks and silver stocks. Gold and silver reached record high prices in 2020. This caused the stocks to also greatly increase in value throughout the year.
There are also lithium stocks, which have been performing extremely well recently. These stocks have been performing well as a result of the electric vehicle boom. Electric vehicles use lithium-ion batteries, which is why the market for lithium stocks has grown so much. There are plenty of other mining sectors to keep your eye on, such as copper, iron, steel, and uranium.
There are fears of inflation right now, and nobody knows what effect that will have on mining stocks. But if a notable amount of inflation takes place, it will likely impact most if not all mining stocks. At the moment, there are still many mining stocks that are increasing in value. Often these companies will perform well when the materials they search for are growing in price. So let’s take a look at three mining stocks that have potential in the market.Top Mining Stocks To Watch

Currently, the market appears to be giving us little value for our Los Azules copper deposit, despite its impressive size and robust economics at present copper prices.
