Gold’s strong start to 2018 now a 'distant memory' - Mining Capital's Alastair Ford

''Bears have been dominant in gold markets in recent weeks as US dollar strength has consolidated'', Mining Capital's Alastair Ford tells Proactive Investors.

Ford also discusses Arc Minerals Ltd's (LON:ARCM) move this week to acquire a controlling stake in Zamsort Ltd.

Plus he gives a quick mention of Meteoric Resources NL (ASX:MEI) and their plans to advance their cobalt assets in Canada.
