Since I fear more of those days, ABX may be the answer.

Even numbers for it are good: P/E = 15, some growth when Gold prices are high ( Qtrly Revenue Growth yoy:19.80%, Qtrly Earnings Growth (yoy):22.50%).

Barrick has little debts and gives out some dividends: 1.4% yield is not much, but could help make a choice.

Barric has reserves of 124.6 million ounces of gold, worth about $100 Billion

6.2 billion pounds of copper worth about $18 Billion
