Record high gold prices are sending investors scurrying for mining stocks this week. Among the players, on Tuesday AngloGold Ashanti ( AU) went higher by 8.7%, Gold Fields ( GFI) added 6.6% and Harmony Gold Mining ( HMY) tracked higher by 9.1%. Among the bigger outfits, American depositary shares for BHP Billton ( BBL) and Rio Tinto ( RTP) also bid higher, adding 3.1% and 4.4% for the day's effort. Against that backdrop, tell us which mining company you consider the best play on rising gold prices. Leave a comment and give us your thoughts, but also tell us if you have a favored play that's not on the list.
