On Comex, December gold climbed by $5.70, or 0.4%, to $1,494.40 an ounce. On Friday, it posted its lowest finish month to date and the most-active futures contract lost 1.6%.
December silver added 10.6 cents, or 0.6%, to $17.65 an ounce, while December copper shed 1.1 cents, or 0.4%, to $2.617 a pound.
