The TSX Venture Exchange recovered a bit from Monday's drubbing, regaining 20.83 points to 1,060.43, while the TSX gold index added 2.05 points to 287.33. Torex Gold Resources Inc.

The company reported a $109-million (U.S.) profit for 2020 in what Jody Kuzenko, president and chief executive officer, called a "record-breaking year."

This is the same amount paid in recent quarters, but it appears investors were anticipating an increase.
