GO USA! First New #Copper Mine in USA in 10 Years

his comes at a huge cost. A major legal case has been launched against the largest tech companies such as Apple, Google, Microsoft and Tesla for using child slave labor. Demand for copper and cobalt is soaring but a lot originates from areas with extreme poverty and no labor laws. Washington DC is seeing a push led by President Trump to boost domestic mineral production, development and exploration for the first time in decades.

Gold Year End Breakout Finally Boosting Junior Miners $GLD $GDXJ

Several weeks ago when the TSX Venture was on its back due to tax loss selling I warned its planting time not selling time predicting a year end breakout in gold and the junior miners. Now gold has rallied pretty much everyday for 2 straight weeks making it short term overbought after a powerful breakout move into new 7 year highs. Don't be surprised for a little profit taking along the way as precious metals bulls who have been beaten down for so long are finally able to take some gains as gold is overbought because of the recent instability in Iraq over the killing of the Iranian General by the USA.

Gold and Palladium Hitting Record Highs on Geopolitical Uncertainty

The chart looks amazing and I can't find any other junior like this. If you can find another palladium junior in North America with these economics please tell me! Its hard to find a project that could average 200k palladium eq. ounces annually over 14 years at an all in sustaining cost under $600 an ounce.

TSX Venture Testing All Time Lows: Time for Planting Not Selling

The next big event is next week in Zurich. I hope to see the juniors get some attention but tax loss selling season is near and there has been non stop selling on the Venture since the beginning of 2018. The Venture could test last years lows or even worse see a final capitulation waterfall decline to break through 2015 lows. We may need to see one final wash out before the TSX Venture can make a powerful comeback.

Get Gold and Silver Before Middle East Devolves into Civil War

I closely monitor and invest in the junior miners raising money to drill for new discoveries because that is why we are in this sector to make money. The big money in mining is made in getting in before a discovery hypothesis is confirmed through drilling. In some cases sentiment in the markets and sector can be so bad that the market doesn't recognize yet the opportunity. This is where we dig around the press releases and news filing for undiscovered stories not really known yet but could be if they hit on drilling.

Junior Mining Investing Comes Down To One Thing…Making Shareholders $$$

Despite the markets one can still find the highest quality juniors following up on some of the best results in 2018 for any miner in the world. For over a year I have highlighted one story in BC in particular even before the metals broke out. In the early stage exploration sector you have to know the people who can get the job done. Natural resource investing comes down to being able to make shareholders money. The way to make money is to have a great team of people working on a great project. Sure some people can make it once on a deal by sheer luck but if you see a team doing it not once but twice or more than three times then you know they are professionals.

Rare Earths Sector ETF $REMX Booming Again On Trade War With China

Over eight years ago I wrote about a crisis that could unfold in the United States related to rare earth imports from China. Remember the Chinese control the rare earth market. These rare earths are used in your phones, Ipads, and hybrid/electric vehicles. Just think of rare earths in all your advanced technologies which involve magnets like hard drives and speakers. Some think the rare earth boom has been and gone...but I think its coming back and it could be very soon.
