Trump Signs New Law Boosting US Critical Metal Projects

For many years, I have asked my readers to learn more about our national security being totally reliant on foreign imports of our must crucial minerals and metals needed for our newest technologies. At times I even suggested to contact your local elected officials and make them aware of dire importance of a domestic secure supply of these most critical elements. I have been warning for close to a decade about a coming crisis among modern industrial nations posed by China's draconian and monopolistic maneuvers in the implementation of a rare earth quota system. See the full article on Seeking Alpha written more than seven years ago entitled, "The Fast Growing Rare Earth Crisis In The United States". Fast forward eight years after little support from Obama, the rare earth industry (REMX) as well as other critical battery and clean energy metals such as lithium, cobalt, graphite ...etc could receive an important boost. Late last year under the new Trump Administration an executive order was signed ordering federal agencies to end this monopoly of critical metals by China. Lithium Ion Battery materials was identified as crucial for America's economic future to have a secure domestic supply.

Right now gold has been basing for almost 7 years while the majority of short sighted investors chase momentum into bubble like areas in financial stocks, tech and housing despite the record valuations and despite the warning of a market that has been on its longest run since the roaring 20's which preceded the Great Depression.A little junior I featured a few months ago when it was trading at pennies has just broken through the $1 mark on a world class lithium discovery.

Gold could be about to breakout into new 10 year highs when looking at in Canadian dollars and top gold explorers in the best mining jurisdictions will come back into favor as the producers can not replace their reserves.

3 Junior Miners in USA Making Big News at PDAC in 2018

Here we go again as this time of year brings a lot of hype to the mining industry as tens of thousands of people from all over the world come to Toronto to present their goods and services at the PDAC convention. Its not uncommon to pay $300+ for a hotel room to hang around the Toronto Convention Center and go to a bunch of parties. However, the more experienced junior mining investors are aware of what has been termed by many the "PDAC curse". The PDAC Curse is becoming more widely known when there has been more selling coming out of the conference than buying. However, things may have changed these past couple of years and we are seeing some bullish reversals coming out of PDAC.

Gold Is Almost Ready To Make the $1400 Breakout!

I recently went to the Money Show conference in Orlando and saw a lot of buzz around crypto currency and cannabis but very little about lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper and precious metals. Notice the pricing in lithium and cobalt is surging. Gold is on verge of huge breakout at $1400. Remember the days struggling companies would change there names to dot coms? Now they are adding blockchain to their names to dupe investors into the latest fad. Well I'm not falling for it and either should you! Stick to the metals and commodities just beginning to breakout into multi year highs. Look to early stage explorers and developers known as junior miners with top tier assets and management teams with track records and are debt free.

Multi-Year Breakout in Gold at $1400 Could Boost Junior Miners

“We see a breakout at $1,400 in gold, which could mean new multiyear highs,” said Jeb Handwerger, editor of GoldStockTrades.com, which offers a newsletter focusing on mining exploration companies. Gold futures haven’t topped $1,400 since 2013. A decline in the value of the U.S. dollar has recently helped boost dollar-denominated prices of gold, but Handwerger pointed out that “many investors have been diverted away from mining into much more speculative areas like blockchain and cannabis.” “Even investment conferences and newsletter writers who were once gold bugs are now cryptocurrency gurus,” and this is very similar to 1999 when gold bulls became dot-com gurus,” he said. “Eventually, we will have another gold rush possibly even bigger than the late 70s but possibly more like the 30s.”

Is Trump Sparking a Revival in US Lithium Sector?

Many investors are ignoring the recent move in the nation's capital by President Trump to reduce our reliance on imported lithium which more than half comes from South America. A US domestic lithium supply is becoming a top interest for lawmakers and energy companies. I believe we should continue to witness increasing agreements between end user battery makes and junior lithium companies especially in the USA. Notice the chart below the US is nowhere to be found for lithium production despite having significant resources. That could change under Trump.

Are You Ready for The 2nd Leg Higher in the TSX Venture in 2018?

Looking at the TSX Venture Chart above it appears the Venture peaked in 2011 and bottomed in 2016. Since the summer of 2016 the Venture has consolidated that first move for over 18 months. It appears that we could be starting the next leg higher with this break of 850. We are also moving into a very favorable time period where rallies occur between January and March. If you want to take advantage of a new year tax loss bounce you should buy a handful of really quality juniors which are still cheap.

Is Chile’s Mining Industry About To Boom After Election?

For many months now I have related to my subscribers that the pro capitalist movement in Chile was growing stronger and that a rally could begin in the Chilean junior miners as the country turns more pro-busines. I highlighted for close to a year now that maybe Argentina was getting a bit overpriced and we should look at Chile for the critical lithium supplies. Over the weekend the runoff election was announced and my forecast of Chile turning pro business was spot on. Conservative candidate Pinera won by a huge margin pledging to rebuild the economy and open up the country to foreign investment. He won more votes than any other president indicating the people of Chile want the economy to rebound.
