5 Record Breaking Gemstones Even Billionaires Can’t Buy
As Elizabeth Taylor once said: “I adore wearing gems, but not because they are mine. You can't possess radiance, you can only admire it.” It’s a good philosophy, because when it comes to the world’s biggest, rarest and most extraordinary gemstone discoveries, no one—not even billionaire President Donald Trump—could afford the possession. We’re not talking about the average diamond engagement ring that sets you back $4,000 and was probably grown in a lab. And we’re not talking about the $3,000 ru

Irredeemable Currency De-tooths Savers
Arbitrary Interest Rates In the past few weeks, we have argued that interest rates will not rise. We have made our arguments based on observable cases of soft credit demand that falls with rising rates, and analysis of the incentives on creditors and debtors. Ours is a case that rates can’t go up much, for long, because demand for credit won’t chase rates up. In the postwar period up to 1981, borrowers chased rates all the way up the moon. But not since then. Now, we want to make a theoretical a

  No Manipulation, After All
In the never-ending search to either verify or rebut one’s own findings, I’d like you to consider something different today. I’m going to ask you to set aside my highly specific allegations of wrong-doing in the silver and gold markets, mostly centering on JPMorgan, and focus instead on whether if what I allege is really wrong or even matters much. Even though my allegations are based upon data published by the CFTC and CME Group, I would ask you to put that aside and consider that I may have be

Mineral Specimen Collecting: Silver and Gold
For the last 20 years, the author has been visiting mines, mineral fairs, and mineral dealers to purchase and self collect minerals from over 40 countries to date. One of his guiding inspirations was Peter Bancroft's excellent book Gem and Crystal Treasures which describes Bancroft's selection of the 100 localities for the worlds best mineral specimens. This essay will describe some of the background and history of famous localities, and the minerals found there. It is

Trump Tax Cuts Have Postponed Economic Collapse: “The U.S. Has Become The Tax Haven Of The World”
The last several years have seen massive gains for both stock market and digital currency investors with prices hitting unprecedented levels of growth. But one particular asset class, despite its necessity for day-to-day global activities, has been totally ignored by the general investing public. According to venture capital financier Carlo Civelli, there are varying reasons for why mining companies involved in commodity metals like copper, zinc, gold and silver have been either stagnant or seen

From the Heart: Own Precious Metals
One of the things from which I occasionally enjoy a good chuckle is the insecurity displayed by bloggers or newsletter writers who are constantly in need of positive reinforcement derived by reminding readers of their "incredible market calls." It is always readily-predictable because just before they ask you to buy something (like a subscription), they post a link to emphasize their brilliance with phrases like "as you know" or "back in 2017" providing breathtaking introductions to their most r

Geologist Peter Megaw's Golden Touch in His Search for District-Scale Mines
High-grade and district-scale are geologist Peter Megaw's mantra. We look into some of the projects he devotes his attention to right now. Geologist Peter Megaw, one of the co-founders of MAG Silver Corp. (MAG:TSX; MAG:NYSE.MKT), led the geological team that found MAG's Juanicipio project, now a joint venture with Fresnillo Plc (FRES:LSE), in one of the world's largest silver districts.

A modern land rush Trump move opens Utah to mining claims under 1872 law
WASHINGTON -- U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw federal protections from millions of acres of Utah wilderness will reopen much of the iconic terrain to gold, silver, copper, and uranium land claims under a Wild West-era mining law, according to federal officials. Starting at 6 a.m. on Feb. 2 -- the moment Trump's proclamation reducing the size of the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments takes effect -- private citizens and companies will be allowed to stak

WORLD’S LARGEST SILVER MINES: Suffer Falling Ore Grades Rising Costs
The world’s two largest silver mines have seen their productivity decline substantially due to falling ore grades and rising costs.  Gone are the days when silver mines could produce silver at 15-20 ounces per ton.  Today, the Primary Silver Mining Industry is likely producing silver at an average yield of 4-5 ounces per ton.In my newest video, I discuss the changes that have taken place in the world’s two largest silver mines, the Cannington Mine in Australia and the Fresnillo Mine in Mexico.

Monetary Metals Brief 2018
Predicting the likely path of the prices of the metals in the near term is easy. Just look at the fundamentals. We have invested many man-years in developing the theory, model, and software to calculate it. Every week we publish charts and our calculated fundamental prices. However, predicting the outlook for a longer period of time is much harder. The fundamental shows the relative pressures in the spot and futures markets, but they only show a snapshot. They do not predict how those pressures

Silver Bullion: Once and Future Money

In reversal, EPA deals setback to controversial gold mining proposal in Alaska
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt announced late Friday that he will not scrap the agency's 2014 determination that a large-scale mining operation could irreparably harm Alaska's Bristol Bay water­shed. His decision, which falls short of blocking a proposed gold and copper mine in the region outright, represents a surprising twist in a years-long battle that has pitted a Canadian-owned mining company against commercial fishing operators, native Alaskans and conservationi

A New Bull Market In Commodities Is Emerging
We’ve all watched in amazement, while the equities markets around the world have risen to new highs. On Wall Street hardly a week goes by without a new record. There comes a time however when a sector becomes so overbought, that smart money begins to leave and search for a sector that has been overlooked. That moment is now at hand, as can be seen in our first chart – courtesy sources listed. This chart compares equities to commodities. In 1970, 2000 and today, equities have become overpriced

Craig Hemke: Will the bullion banks ever let silver join commodities rally
Weakness in the U.S. dollar, the TF Metals Report's Craig Hemke writes today at Sprott Money, is being reflected in the prices of major commodities, particularly oil and copper, but not in silver, whose market is "easily the most manipulated in the world." So will silver ever rise and catch up to the rest? "The dollar weakness suggests it," Hemke writes. "Other commodities suggest it. The commitment-of-traders structure suggests it. But will the banks allow it?" Hemke's analysis is headlined "P

A Few Words on the Gold Sector

Silver as a Strategic Metal and Why Prices Will Soar
The arguments in favor of silver as an investment asset are growing rapidly. In the opinion of the Jackass, silver is the most under-valued hard asset in existence, with the highest potential for price appreciation on the globe. To begin with, central banks own no silver, but do own huge tracts of gold. Industry has huge demand for silver, but a trifling amount for gold demand. The investment demand is another key factor in favor of silver, but also for gold. Ever since the tech telecom bust in

Mining CEO Warns Of Massive Deficits: “We’re At Critical Levels… Less Than 10 Days Of Supply”
With much of the investment world focused on crypto currencies and blockchain, it’s no surprise that the fundamental building blocks of the physical world have been ignored for so long. The focus in recent years has been on mining digital assets, but in the real world mining companies that specialize in essential metals like silver and zinc have been warning of massive deficits that, as SGT Report notes in a recent interview with Callinex Mines CEO Max Porterfield, could easily lead to supply sh
