James G. Rickards: In the year 2024
Writing for The Daily Reckoning, fund manager, author, and geopolitical strategist James G. Rickards imagines life in the year 2024 as being under the totalitarian control of a world central bank that has outlawed not only gold but also markets and money itself. While Rickards' nightmare scenario is the perfectly logical consequence of the trend of central banking, we still have a few years to push the world toward a different future.

Kinross to sell halted Ecuador gold project to Lundin company
Kinross Gold Corp has agreed to sell its halted Fruta del Norte gold project in Ecuador to a company belonging to the Swedish-Canadian Lundin family for $240 million, Kinross and the company, Fortress Minerals Corp., said today. Toronto-based Kinross acquired the project in 2008 with its $1.2 billion friendly takeover of Aurelian Resources, and once called it "one of the most exciting gold discoveries of the past 15 years."

Fighting back, First Majestic delays sale of silver amid price weakness 
Ninety-nine point nine percent of gold and silver mining companies and their executives are brain-dead, merely geologists and accountants, unaware of the monetary nature of their product and how their product is priced by surreptitious market intervention by central banks. But here and there certain companies and their executives have a clue, and First Majestic Silver Corp. today again proclaimed itself to have far more than a clue.
