Tom Lydon submits:

A bevy of gold miners reported first-quarter earnings this week, and the results were nothing short of stellar. If you’re looking to ride the current gold rush, you may want to consider gaining exposure through gold-miner related ETFs.

Newmont Mining (NEM), Goldcorp (GG) and Barrick (ABX) all reported earnings this week, and they didn’t disappoint:

  • Newmont Mining’s profits soared in the first quarter, thanks to higher gold and copper prices, as well as increased production.
  • Revenues at Goldcorp rose 20% from a year earlier, and gold production increased as well.
  • Barrick notched record profits in the first quarter, doubling its income on increased production, as well as gold and copper sales. Gold production soared 19% in the first quarter.
