Bonds and Related Indicators (and more macro discussion)
By Gary TanashianThe target for TLT continues to be around 129. Treasury bonds are in bull trends (remember back a few months ago to all the bond hatred in the media). How does an eventual decline in bonds square with what we just noted above regarding Q4 2008? [work done in the preceding Precious Metals segment] Treasury bonds were a wonderfully bullish asset during Armageddon ’08 and who’s to say that an upside blow off may not be coming sooner rather than later amid massively over bullish sen

Tanzania's firebrand leader takes on its largest gold miner
"If they accept that they stole from us and seek forgiveness in front of God and the angels and all Tanzanians and enter into negotiations, we are ready to do business." As conciliatory gestures go, that one by John Magufuli, Tanzania's president, to Acacia Mining, the country's largest foreign investor, could hardly have been more fork-tongued. Nonetheless, two days later John Thornton, head of Barrick Gold, Acacia's largest shareholder, met Mr. Magufuli to start talks on ending a dispute that

These missives that I construct periodically usually have as their genesis a "Eureka!" moment while reading a research piece or a written commentary from one of the thousands of self-styled market authorities or if I have the random luck of catching an interview on Bloomberg or (UGH!) CNBC. During a normal week, I will text myself a quick note or leave myself a voice note when and if an idea comes to mind so when I am travelling, it is usually preferable that I be close to a decent WiFi signal i

Platinum, The Forgotten Precious Metal-Revisited
My good friend Adam Meister – i.e, the “Bitcoin Meister” of (rapidly increasing) YouTube fame – sagely stated today, “you get rich slowly, and poor quickly” – which goes double for those utilizing traditional valuation metrics in historically manipulated markets.  Fortunately, no financial manipulation, throughout the course of history, has ended well; and now that the “custodians” of history’s largest, most destructive fiat Ponzi have reached their ‘trapped rats on a sinking ship’ moment, the “

Tracking Physical Silver Prices 
We have repeatedly over the years bleeted about why the silver guru 'smarties' have no info sources within the silver refineries. From our own personal experiences when the refining inventories are bursting, the retail CASH price for silver will fall. With the COMEX manipulation causing unreliable (misleading) physical silver pricing, shouldn't we be looking at the real supply? What better method than to track refinery inventories ?

Orphaned Poisoned Waters
There's a lot of water on the planet we inhabit – an estimated 326 million trillion gallons or 1,260,000,000,000,000,000,000 liters. Hard to believe are reports water is going to get much dearer in our near term future – yet Peter Voser, chief executive of the world's second-largest energy company, Royal Dutch Shell, warned us, as far back as June 2011, that global demand for fresh water may outstrip supply by as much as 40 per cent in 20 years if current fresh-water consumption trends continue.

With the price of cobalt increasing, Bob Moriarty of 321 Gold profiles Castle Silver, which has turned its focus to cobalt.

We know it will happen and the guesses as to timing are getting closer and closer. What should be obvious is that one of the most importan

Silver "Undecided Spreaders" at 4 Year Highs - Time to Buckle Up?
via Wall St. Whisperer and What’s going on with silver? If you’ve been bullish silver, you might feel the same angst some investors have felt over the past two months. But, according to one anonymous analyst from Simple Digressions, it may be time to look at the grey metal again. “For the last two months the silver market has been sending very mixed signals. Its physical segment is, in my opinion, very strong now but the paper segment is not,” the analyst explained in a Seeking

From Yukon to Patagonia, gold explorers stir after sleep
From Canada's Yukon to southern Patagonia, outbreaks of gold-rush fever are popping up as bullion markets stage a tentative recovery. The number of holes drilled at gold deposits has been rising steadily for more than a year, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence. And while early-stage exploration budgets haven't kept pace with spending at existing mines, prospecting hot spots are starting to pop up in traditional destinations Canada, Australia, and Latin America.

Brent Cook's Primer on Reading Drill Result Press Releases
The Gold Report: After the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada Convention in March, you said that the next 12?18 months could define how investors, speculators and mining companies perceive and value both the junior and major mining sectors. That was before the volatility of mid-April. With higher production costs being the new normal, what percentage of miners can make money at the current gold price? Brent Cook: That is a tough call because companies use different methods to repo

Obama blocked this controversial Alaskan gold mine but Trump just gave it new life
The Environmental Protection Agency has reached a legal settlement with a Canadian company hoping to build a massive gold, copper, and molybdenum mine in Alaska's Bristol Bay watershed, clearing the way for the firm to apply for federal permits.
