New York spot gold rose $4.20 to $1,774.50 on Thursday. The TSX-V rose another 7.38 points to 627.51 while the TSX gold index slid 5.33 points to 340.62. Alio Gold Inc. (ALO) rose 21 cents to $1.92 on 855,000 shares on its penultimate day of trading. The company will disappear at Friday's close thanks to its acquisition by Argonaut Gold Inc. (AR). Argonaut added 32 cents to $2.88 on 5.21 million shares on word that the merger has been completed.
John McConnell's Victoria Gold Corp. (VGCX) lost 14 cents to $14.05 on 299,000 shares on word that its Eagle mine, near Mayo in central Yukon, reached commercial production effective at the start of July.

This is a great -- and simultaneously bad -- time to be bringing a mine on stream: The price of gold is soaring as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but miners have had to deal with the additional rules in place to prevent the spread.
