The Vanishing Of The Gold Basis and... 
The gold basis is defined as the difference between the nearby futures price and the cash price of gold in the same location. A positive basis is called contango; a negative one, backwardation. Since there were no organized futures markets in gold prior to 1971, the history of gold basis is confined to the last 35 or so years Gold futures trading started on the Winnipeg Commodity Exchange in Canada in 1971 at a time when ownership and trading of gold was still illegal in the United States. Upon becoming legal the bulk of gold futures

El Petro: Beggar Thy Neighbor?
We have been attempting to cover this subject but someone keeps moving the pieces. One day Maduro is announcing El Petro and three weeks later Maduro is releasing El Petro. Then the Venezuelan Parliament calls it unConstitutional but Maduro is pushing forward!! This move is followed by Maduro calling on his neighbor countries to buy in. What a mess. El Petro cryptocurrency begs the question of where the thing originated. El Petro was announced and within a few weeks it is on the market!! Think o

And Now Comes the Internet Censorship
"A credibility trap is when the regulatory, political and/or informational functions of a society have been so compromised by a long term, generalcorruption that they cannot address any meaningful reform without implicating, at least incidentally, themselves.  The status quo has at least tolerated the corruption and fraud, if not profited directly from it, and most likely continues to do so.  The power brokers have become susceptible to various forms of blackmail.  And so a failed policy is sust

The 5 Largest Gold Nuggets that Still Exist
Throughout gold rush and gold mining history, the discovery of a large gold nugget is a phenomenon which always causes excitement throughout a mining community as well as capturing the wider public's imagination. It has probably something to do with so much gold being found at the same time, often with relative ease. Gold nuggets can be found in alluvial deposits (sediments formed by water movement) or in other placer deposits (formed by other movement), but gold nuggets can also be found in or

Investment prospects for 2018
Predicting the future is a mug’s game, and in financial markets we simply cannot know tomorrow’s prices. All we can do is make assessments of the factors that can be expected to influence them.Economists’ forecasts today, with very few exceptions, are a waste of time and downright misleading. In 2016, we saw this spectacularly illustrated with Brexit, when the IMF, OECD, the Bank of England and the UK Treasury all forecast a slump in the British economy in the event the referendum voted to leave

Keith Barron Wants to Mine U3O8 'Cheep'
More mining companies should follow the example of the garimpeiro miners of Brazil who mine until they fail to make a profit, says Bob Moriarty of 321 Gold, who discusses one gold and one uranium company that may be changing the paradigm. The garimpeiro miners in Brazil can't spell either. All they know how to do is to mine at a profit. Unlike professionally run mining companies, they mine until they fail to make a profit. Then they stop. All garimpeiros

Russia, China and BRICS: A New Gold Trading Network
One of the most notable events in Russia’s precious metals market calendar is the annual “Russian Bullion Market” conference. Formerly known as the Russian Bullion Awards, this conference, now in its 10th year, took place this year on Friday 24 November in Moscow. Among the speakers lined up, the most notable inclusion was probably Sergey Shvetsov, First Deputy Chairman of Russia’s central bank, the Bank of Russia. In his speech, Shvetsov provided an update on an important development involving

Gold Bullion 'Beefs Up Security' Says Russia as Turkey-Iran Gold Trading Trial Hits US Relations
GOLD BULLION slipped against a falling US Dollar on Friday, heading for a 0.3% weekly drop as the US Thanksgiving holidays left world stockmarkets to edge higher and diplomatic tensions worsened further between Turkey and Washington. With the Dollar dropping again on the FX market, gold trading in London – center of the global wholesale market – saw the metal drop hard against all other major Western currencies.

Pure-Play Vanadium Producer's Q3 Revenues Increase 153 YOY
With the price of vanadium on the rise, one pure-play producer is reaping the benefits. Vanadium, a metal that maintains a low profile, has been on a tear recently. The metal is used to harden steel: a mere two pounds of vanadium added to one ton of steel doubles its strength. The price of vanadium has surged since the summer, led by the expectation of China increasing the required amount of vanadium in steel used for construction, acco

The Never-Ending Wars of the United States of America
A Monday Morning Musing from Mickey the Mercenary Geologist"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small 'inside' group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefi

Total Return of Stocks, Bonds, Gold, 1871-2015
Today, we are looking at the total return of stocks, bonds and gold, from 1871 to 2015. The source of the data is here: http://www.econ.yale.edu/~shiller/data.htm I calculated the total return this way: stocks: index return plus 1/12th of dividend each month bonds: “long term” bond yield, compounded monthly gold: price in dollars This is not a very good way of calculating a bond index. There is no provision for the market price of bonds, among other issues. But, it should be good enough for a ro

Supermajors Square Off For The Top Spot In Oil
Brent’s close to $65 a barrel and WTI is climbing closer and closer to $60—and analysts are rushing to make bullish forecasts for the fourth quarter of the year. Big Oil is preparing for an even better three-month period than Q3, when all supermajors beat profit expectations. Two of them stand out: Exxon and Shell. It’s no secret that Shell has ambitions to overtake Exxon as the world’s number-one oil company in terms of value. It’s actually on track to beat Exxon on cash flow from operations fo

Vanadium: The Metal We Can?t Do Without And Don?t Produce
From swords to jet engines  One of the world’s least known metals is also of great importance, and likely to become more so as renewable energies catch up with and possibly eclipse fossil fuels. Yet vanadium’s primary use as a steel alloy is set to keep prices buoyant and North American explorers racing to find a domestic source of the metal that was once used to make swords so strong and sharp the mere sight of them struck fear into the hearts of their enemies. A sword of Damascus steel – d

Oil for gold – the real story
Following an article in the Nikkei Asia Review, which reported China will shortly introduce an oil futures contract priced in yuan, there has been some confusion about what it means. The article pointed out that in combination with existing gold futures priced in yuan, an oil exporter to China contracting to accept yuan could use these two futures contracts to take delivery of physical gold in payment for oil.I was quoted in that article as follows:"It is a mechanism which is likely to appeal to

Famous diamonds
Black diamonds come from outer space 
Outer space may also be the birthplace of the mysterious black diamonds known as carbonados. From the Portuguese word for burned or carbonized, carbonados were first found in Brazil in the 1800s and have since turned up elsewhere, most notably in central Africa. Unlike the clear diamonds of engagement rings, which are single crystals, black diamond consists of aggregations of individual crystals, which lend the gem its dark color.

  One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter
One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter, is, pretty much, a gold-bashing exercise. I think it is propaganda: that is to say, not a forthright expression of an individual’s independent and informed view, but an intentional effort to mold public opinion to serve certain agendas. The tone and method is very much like The Power of Gold: the History of an Obsession, by Peter Bernstein, seventeen years earlier — so similar, indeed, that it sometimes seems that it could have come from the same
