Barrick Gold’s stock is popping 10% Monday after legendary investor Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway revealed a stake in the gold miner’s stock.

Berkshire added a $562 million position in Barrick Gold in the second quarter, according to SEC filings Friday. While the position is small for Berkshire — which owns more than $89 billion in Apple stock — the conglomerate is the 11th largest shareholder of the gold mining company, according to FactSet.

This was an unusual move considering Buffett, a long-time value investor, has long professed a dislike for gold, preferring assets that have cash flows or pay dividends.

Shares of miner have surged more than 45% this year as investors rush into the safe haven metal trade during the coronavirus pandemic. Gold prices have had a banner year, topping $2,000 per ounce this month for the first time ever on worries about the impact of Covid-19 on the economy and lower bond yields. Spot gold has rallied nearly 30% in 2020, making it one of the the best-performing mainstream assets this year.
