Silver David Morgan
When attempting to quantify the amount and quality of a possible mineralized deposit on their property, exploration companies and producers generally follow a process which seeks to state, in reasonably accurate and concise terms, just what they have…or might have. Following the Bre-X fiasco, wherein ‘highly inaccurate’ reserves of a supposed deposit in Borneo were publicized and acted upon by a tidal wave of investors, sophisticated and neophyte alike, a new set of reporting rules was enacted. Canadian National Instrument 43-101, is a rule developed by the Canadian Securities Administrators governing the process of disclosing to the public, scientific and technical information about mining projects. The NI 43-101 report is presented (usually within the context of a company News Release) by a “Qualified Person” – by a (presumably) competent licensed geoscientist, who often works for the company in question and is assumed to be skilled in analyzing the mineralization under review.

Gold Gold miners have enjoyed an uptick in stock prices this year though 2013 was a very tough year for the group. It seems like the gold miners are now taking these lower gold bullion prices to heart as they review their financials in order to make future quarters more attractive. No more living it up with a gold price that rose for a decade - they must actually see their executives do some work in terms of how they run their operations. In the last 24 hours, both Barrick Gold and Kinross Gold have made major announcements on write downs.

"Barrick Gold Corp. slashed its reserves by a quarter and took $2.82-billion (U.S.) in impairment charges on mines, including on its troubled Pascua Lama project in the Andes, the company’s latest moves to adjust to the weaker gold price."

Gold Over the years there have been many claims, studies, articles, interviews, a couple of investigations and even lawsuits about the possible manipulation of gold (and silver) prices.

Dmitrity Speck is a technical analyst who has recently written a book, titled The Gold Cartel: Government Intervention on Gold, the Mega Bubble in Paper, and What This Means for Your Future. In this podcast, he talks about his views on the manipulation of gold prices.

Other The financial market crash of 2008 may have had its roots in the United States but was felt all across the globe. It was a culmination of years of living high on the hog where a lot of money was made before it all came crashing down and a lot of money was lost, not to mention lives that were ruined - many permanently. The Big Short is a nice bookend to Michael Lewis' first work - Liar's Poker - which we reviewed some weeks ago. It provided an insider's view on how Wall Street operated in the 1980s. With The Big Short, Lewis takes us through the building, sustaining and eventual pricking of the subprime mortgage and related housing and derivative bubble through the eyes of (mostly unknown) hedge fund managers who bet against the tide.

Gold Money is universally recognised as the way that capitalist societies trade products and services, but there is nothing intrinsically valuable about currency itself. A coin is only worth the good or service it is being exchanged for, though theoretically, it is being exchanged for some sum of gold which is locked up in a bank somewhere. Precious metals – gold, silver, platinum, etc. – have been recognised the world over as being valuable, so if you’re a keen investor looking for a new opportunity, investing in precious metals might just be the route to go down. Here’s a beginner’s guide to precious metal investing if you’re unsure of how it works.
