Historically, gold prices have climbed much more than what we have seen so far during bull rallies, and if we apply historical multiples, gold should be trading closer to the $8,000 to $21,000 an ounce price range, this according to Rob McEwen, chairman of McEwen Mining. “Gold from 1970 to 1980 went $40 to $800, so a 20x move. And then it dropped to $250 in 1999 and 2001 and ran to $1,900, that was a 7x move. If you apply any one of those multiples to the lowest low we had recently of $1,050, you could see $8,000 to $21,000 price on gold,” McEwen told Kitco News on the sidelines of the Precious Metals Summit in Beaver Creek.
