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

The Fall and Rise of the Gold Standard
The gold standard can only be understood in the context of its clearing system, the bill market, trading real bills that move in a direction opposite to the flow of maturing goods to the final gold-paying consumer. Authors looking at the gold standard in isolation got a cock-eyed perspective. They have to invoke the quantity theory of money. The trouble is that, although it could explain linear changes, the quantity theory is helpless to explain non-linear phenomena such as dynamic changes. Whenever Mises talked about an “evenly

How to protect one’s pension with Gold 
Greed is as old as human race. The last time it overtook husbandry in the realm of gold was over 35 years ago. In 1968 you could still buy gold at $35 per oz. The price had not changed for 35 years, since 1933, in spite of six years of depression; six years of World War II; six years of Marshall give-away; six years of Korean War; six years of escalation of the Vietnam War; the Berlin blockade, the Cuban missile crisis and other Cold War battles. All these historic events have contributed to monetary depreciation in the order of 75 percent. The gold mining industry was badly hurting. Yet it kept producing and selling gold at break-neck speed as if there was no tomorrow. The gold producers of the 1960s, just as those of today, were doped by the paper-money magic. They were coaxed out of their possession of a real asset to exchange it for a phony one. In giving it up at a ridiculous price they were unwitting stooges helping postpone the day when gold could break its shackles. Nobody then or since has bothered pointing out the folly of the inmate who would ingratiate himself to the jail-keepers by assisting them to make his yoke heavier.

Bits of Australia’s Gold history
Although gold had been rumoured to have been found in Australia as early as 1814, the first gold fields did not appear until thirty years later. Gold discoveries were not considered blessings in the pre 1850’s Australian convict society as the authorities believed gold fever could potentially cause anarchy in the small fledgling British colonies.

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

Gold Juniors’ Q3’17 Fundamentals
The junior gold miners’ stocks have spent months grinding sideways near lows, sapping confidence and breeding widespread bearishness.  The entire precious-metals sector has been left for dead, eclipsed by the dazzling Trumphoria stock-market rally.  But traders need to keep their eyes on the fundamental ball so herd sentiment doesn’t mislead them.  The juniors recently reported Q3 earnings, and enjoyed strong results.

Gold Miners’ Q3’17 Fundamentals
The gold miners’ stocks have spent months adrift, cast off in the long shadow of the Trumphoria stock-market rally.  This vexing consolidation has left a wasteland of popular bearishness.  But once a quarter earnings season arrives, bright fundamental sunlight dispelling the obscuring sentiment fogs.  The major gold miners’ just-reported Q3’17 results prove this sector remains strong fundamentally, and super-undervalued. Four times a year publicly-traded compan

A Robot Army Just Made The Biggest Gold Discovery Of The Century
This report from is a paid advertorial Prospectors have mined 20 million ounces of gold from the Yukon’s famous Klondike since the Gold Rush.

A famous geologist armed with the latest in drone tech and robo-drills is certain he’s just found it. This is the Mother Lode of Klondike gold that countless prospectors have been trying to get at for over a century. It makes the 20 million oun

Government Silver Sales Have Totally Dried Up… WHY
Before the turn of the century, Central Banks sold a record 97 million oz of silver into the market in 1999.  This was great deal of silver as it accounted for 17% of total global mine supply that year.  Over the next 14 years, Central Banks continued to sell a substantial amount of silver to supplement the market.However, silver supply from Central Banks has totally dried up over the past three years….. Why?  Well, the answer is quite simple when we understand the data.  Central Banks silver st

Reviving South Africa's gold industry means getting mine workers off their knees
During his early years as a miner in South Africa, Joas Mahanuque spent six hours a day on his knees drilling for Impala Platinum Holdings Ltd. The dust-filled tunnels half a mile underground were too low for him to stand, and temperatures reached 105 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius). Today he has essentially the same job 2.5 kilometers (1.5 miles) beneath the surface for Gold Fields Ltd. But unlike most of the precious-metals miners in the country, Mahanuque sits comfortably atop a new 7

India mulls reviving colonial-era gold mines with $2 billion in reserves
NEW DELHI -- India is planning to revive a cluster of colonial-era gold mines -- shut for 15 years but with an estimated $2.1 billion worth of deposits left -- as the world's second-largest importer of the metal looks for ways to cut its trade deficit, officials said. State-run Mineral Exploration Corp. Ltd. has started exploring the reserves at Kolar Gold Fields, in the southern state of Karnataka, to get a better estimate of the deposits, according to three government officials and a briefing

Putin's sanctioned ally may win mine with a quarter of Russian gold resources
Russia's auction of its giant Sukhoi Log gold field this week pits a long-time ally of President Vladimir Putin against a rival bidder with little background in mining. The resource in the isolated Irkutsk region of Siberia is one of the world's largest untapped gold fields, making up a quarter of Russian reserves. It has held an allure for miners since Soviet geologists surveyed it in the 1970s. Yet BCS Global Markets strategist Kirill Chuyko and Societe Generale SA analyst Sergey Donskoy say o

State Dept. cable confirms gold futures market was created for price suppression
The U.S. gold futures market was created in December 1974 as a result of collusion between the U.S. government and gold dealers in London to facilitate volatility in gold prices and thereby discourage gold ownership by U.S. citizens, according to a State Department cable written that month, obtained by Wikileaks, and disclosed today by the TF Metals Report: The cable was sent to the State Department from the U.S. embassy

Peak Gold Theory Strengthened as Q3 Marks Second Consecutive Quarter of Production Declines
During the third quarter of 2016, global gold production dropped by 0.5%. Miners brought 846.8t onto the market versus 851.2t during Q3 of 2015. While this isn’t a huge decline, it marks the second consecutive quarter that gold production was down versus the previous year. The overall trend of plateauing output remains in place and has increased the odds that we are approaching, or have already reached, peak gold. The chart of annual mine production is shown below. Also notice the sharp decline

The Great Physical Gold Supply Demand Illusion
Gold supply and demand data published by all primary consultancy firms is incomplete and misleading. The data falsely presents gold to be more of a commodity than a currency, having caused deep misconceptions with respect to the metal’s trading characteristics and price formation. Numerous consultancy firms around the world, for example Thomson Reuters GFMS, Metals Focus, the World Gold Council and CPM Group, provide physical gold supply and demand statistics, accompanied by an analysis of these
