Scott Perry's Centerra Gold Inc. (CG) added 95 cents to $16.80 on 1.94 million shares on word that it is declaring a five-cent quarterly dividend, up a penny from its previous four-cent rate. Mr. Perry, president and chief executive officer, says that the increase is the result of strong performance and the surging price of gold.
Tony Makuch's Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (KL) jumped $4.82 to $73.15 on 2.39 million shares on word of some significant bonanza-grade assays from the Swan zone at its Fosterville gold mine in Victoria, Australia. The assays included hits of up to 976 grams of gold per tonne over a true width of seven metres and 933 grams per tonne over 5.8 metres.
