The Evolution Mining Ltd (ASX: EVN) share price is on a roll today despite no news having been released by the company.
However, it might be being boosted by soaring gold prices. The price of the golden commodity surged 1.7% overnight, perhaps bolstering confidence in the gold producer.
At the time of writing, the Evolution Mining share price is $4.19, 9.97% higher than its previous close.
Let’s take a closer look at what might have boosted the gold miner’s stock into the green on Thursday.
What’s driving the Evolution Mining share price higher?
The Evolution Mining share price is soaring in the wake of gold futures’ strong Wednesday gain.
Overnight, February gold futures closed 1.7% higher at US$1,843.20 an ounce. That’s the highest the price of gold has been in 2 months.
However, it’s dropping once more in Thursday’s trade. It’s currently going for US$1840.40 per ounce – representing a 0.15% dip.
According to commodities-focused media outlet Kitco, the metal’s price was likely driven by rising inflation in both the United Kingdom and Canada
As gold is generally seen as an inflation hedge, international concerns probably had a positive effect on its value.
And, of course, the metal’s price is generally a direct tie to Evolution Mining’s earnings.
As one might expect, Evolution Mining isn’t the only ASX gold producer seemingly benefiting from gold’s gains.
Today’s surge has also placed the Evolution Mining share price back into the year-to-date green.
Right now, it’s 3.2% higher than it was at the start of 2022. Though, it’s still 10% lower than it was this time last year.
