Analyst: Nevada Produces Another ‘Hidden Gem’

By The Gold Report

Source: Ron Struthers for Streetwise Reports   07/08/2020

Ron Struthers of the Struthers Resource Stock Report spotlights Golden Lake Exploration and its flagship, Jewel Ridge.

I wanted to see a solid breakout for gold above $1,800/ounce, but we have traded several days at new highs so I am convinced another breakout is underway. This is exactly like the trading action we had in January, where we eventually went through $1,600 up to $1,700. We are essentially trading at the 2011 highs. My next target is $2,000; that will continue the uptrend channel (ignores the March anomaly).

As I mentioned last month, to get maximum benefit from this new bull market, my plan is to buy a basket of quality juniors in good jurisdictions like Mexico, Canada, Australia and Nevada. And Nevada is a state that is a gold country in its own right. Consider this about Nevada:

  • Gold is the state’s top overseas export by value, accounting for $4.9 billion, or 44%, of the state’s $11 billion of exports in 2018. A year earlier, gold accounted for more than half the total. The top destinations are Switzerland and India, where Nevada-mined gold is refined.
  • The state produces more than 80% of the gold mined annually in the United States. If it were a separate country, Nevada would be the world’s fifth-largest producer, behind China, Australia, Russia and Canada.
  • Over the past decade, gold production has averaged about 5.5 million ounces/year. The value of that production in 2018 was just over $7 billion, representing 84% of all mining production in the state.

I have come across another hidden gem in Nevada. This is a new company with a low number of shares out, top-notch management and a Nevada property with all kinds of gold but only drilled to shallow depths.

Projects—Jewel Ridge, Nevada

Jewel Ridge is located on the south end of Nevada’s prolific Battle Mountain–Eureka trend, strategically along strike and contiguous to the former Barrick Gold Corp. (ABX:TSX; GOLD:NYSE) two-million-gold-ounce Archimedes/Ruby Hill mine to the north and Timberline Resources Corp.’s (TLR:NYSE.MKT) advanced-stage Lookout Mountain project to the south. The property claims cover approximately 728 hectares (1,800 acres). There is year-around road access to the property and it is 3.2 kilometers (3.2 km) south of Eureka.

The Jewel Ridge property contains several historic small gold mines that align along a north-south-trending stratigraphic contact of lower Paleozoic sedimentary rocks, as well as several other gold-mineralized zones with a variety of structural and lithological controls.

Historical drilling

The Jewel Ridge Project has been drilled by General Mineral Development LLC, Homestake Mining Co., Tenneco Minerals, Norse-Windfall Ventures, Rainbow Resources and Greencastle Resources (VGN:TSX.V). A total of 89,484 feet (89,484 ft) in 315 reverse circulation or rotary drill holes have been completed at Jewel Ridge. Most of the drilling was done in the 1980s and drill hole locations are approximate, but it is excellent information to guide exploration.

The most recent drilling included Greencastle, which completed three drilling campaigns after acquiring the property. In 2004 the drilling program totaled 11,210 feet in 22 reverse circulation holes. The best intercept was in HRC-11, 135 ft @ 2.1 g/t Au beginning at 310 ft depth, in bleached, decalcified Hamburg dolomite. It is encouraging that this was one of the few deeper holes and had very good results.

In 2006–2007 the drilling program totaled 8,860 feet in 18 reverse circulation holes, testing the Magnet Ridge, North Jewel Ridge, Silica Ridge and Hamburg-Croesus targets. The best intercept is 45 ft @ 0.950 g/t Au in hole GR-07-15. Intercepts in 2012 by Rainbow Resources (lessee) in its drilling program were DH12-5, with 35 ft @0.91 g/t Au; DH12-6 with 15 ft @1.95 g/t Au; and DH12-4 with 5 ft @1.67 g/t Au.

The South Eureka is the first priority drill target. It has 82 historic drill holes and 50 hit mineralization. The last drilling on this target was in the late 1980s and has not been drilled/explored since because tenure issues with the claims, which was resolved in 2012 with the purchase of 13 patented claims. This will be the first time in decades that this priority target will see modern exploration techniques and deeper drilling.

Financials

Last financials, as of Feb. 29, 2020, show $291,936 cash and no debt. Since then GLM closed a non-brokered private placement. The company issued 8,166,667 common share units at a price of $0.15 per unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $1,225,000. The shares and warrants comprising the units are subject to a four-month hold period expiring Oct. 10, 2020.

Conclusion

The average gold grade at the South Eureka target in 50 historic drill holes is 1.16 g/t Au. This is a very good grade for an oxide, heap-leach, open pit mine in Nevada, and indications are this gold is near surface. For example, Atlantic Gold was among the lowest cost producers in the world with their open pit Moose River mine in Nova Scotia. It was bought out by an Australian company, St Barbara Ltd.

Based on this comparison chart of 2018 costs, it highlights Atlantic Gold’s very low costs. As of March 25, 2019, the Atlantic Gold operation had a combined estimated 1.9 million ounces of gold in reserves at a grade of 1.12 grams per tonne. For full details, refer to the compliance documents at stbarbara.com.au/exploration/.

A recent new and low-grade gold mine that is providing strong cash flow is Victoria Gold Corp.’s (VGCX:TSX; VITFF:OTCMKTS) Eagle mine in the Yukon, grading 0.65 g/t Proven and Probable reserves. They just declared commercial production on July 1, and the mine is projected to have AISC of US$774 per ounce gold. Costs are higher in the Yukon compared to Nevada.

An example of a low-cost, high-margin Nevada producer is the Marigold Mine. Owned by SSR Mining Inc. (SSRM:NASDAQ; SSRM:TSX), Marigold stands out for its ultra-low grades of 0.46 g/t. In production since 1989, Marigold is a large run-of-mine operation. After blasting the ore, it doesn’t need to be crushed or ground and can go directly onto the leach pad, which significantly reduces costs.

The famous deposits in Nevada contain microscopic gold but it is found in almost every rock. The gold is low grade (under one gram per tonne) but plentiful. Between 1835 and 2008 a whopping 152 million ounces were pulled from the Carlin Trend and other gold trends in Nevada, including Cortez and Walker Lane, mostly through open-pit mining.

At GLM’s Jewel Ridge, the average historic grades would make for a robust mine if a large enough quantity of gold can be proven. This is historic data so we have to assume some risk with these numbers, but there is room for a margin of error. Deeper drilling might find higher grades as well; only time will tell. The key point is that this data represents $millions in exploration expenditures and provides a headstart on GLM’s exploration, as well as de-risking the project. The gold is there. GLM only needs to find enough to make a deposit.

On June 26 Golden Lake reported that its geological team has confirmed previous reported results on the Radio Tower target (source: press release May 14, 2020) and also has sampled a new mineralized zone designated as the A&E target (historic results up to 29.49 grams per tonne gold, 333.0 g/t silver):

Radio Tower target: Sampling by company personnel of dumps from adits, shafts, old trenches and outcrop have returned a median (based on gold values) of seven samples of 1.93 grams gold per tonne Au (g/t), 44.8 g/t silver (Ag), and 0.04% copper, 0.72% lead (Pb) and 1.18% zinc (Zn).

A & E target: Based on a compilation of the recently acquired historic third-party rock-chip database and geological reconnaissance by company personnel, another prospective target has been identified. Highlights include values up to 29.49 g/t Au, 333.0 g/t Ag, 1.35% Cu, 4.00% Pb and 9.53% Zn. The median (based on gold values) of nine samples on the two patented claims is 2.30 g/t Au, 47.4 g/t Ag, 0.18% Cu, 0.20% Pb and 0.62% Zn.

The A & E target has no known drill holes, but the area has been recently visited by company personnel to determine the logistics of accessing the area during the company’s forthcoming RC (reverse circulation) drill program, planned for July 2020. Samples comprise grab rock samples from dumps of old mine workings and rock outcrop exposures. Grab rock samples are not representative of the grade of mineralization of an occurrence, but are useful in determining prospectivity, and geological features.

As mentioned in the June 26 press release, drilling is expected to start this month, so I would suggest getting position as soon as possible.

You can see on the chart that the stock has been trading less than a year and volume just started picking up in April. The stock has recovered from the March panic selloff, but has yet to break resistance around $0.19. It looks like it was going to but the attempt failed. This pullback provides a good entry price closer to the bottom of the uptrend channel.

Mining Firm Forms ‘Royalty Company to Unlock Value’

By The Gold Report

Source: Streetwise Reports   07/08/2020

GoldMining’s new entity and its potential benefits are outlined in a ROTH Capital Partners report.

In a June 24 research note, ROTH Capital Partners analyst Jake Sekelsky reported that GoldMining Inc. (GOLD:TSX; GLDLF:OTCQX) noted Gold Royalty Co., a gold royalty entity that “represents an opportunity for long-term value creation.”

“We are supportive of management’s proactive approach to unlocking value from its portfolio of gold assets and expect Gold Royalty Co. to provide GoldMining shareholders with optionality going forward,” Sekelsky added.

Sekelsky described the new vehicle. It will hold 14 newly created royalties that will range from 0.5–2% on the same number of GoldMining’s projects. Two of the royalties will be 2%, 11 will be 1% and one will be 0.5%. With all of the royalties, Gold Royalty has exposure to 14.3 million Measured and Indicated ounces and 16.6 million Inferred ounces of gold equivalent.

The analyst presented two ways in which Gold Royalty could offer GoldMining shareholders value. One is through its valuation because royalty companies tend to trade at a premium to explorers and developers, GoldMining for instance. Thus, Gold Royalty could “command a premium to the net asset value multiple received for GoldMining’s existing asset base,” wrote Sekelsky. He noted that ROTH assigned a value of $10 million to Gold Royalty.

The second way is through future exploration on the 139,000 hectares of land that GoldMining holds in the Americas and that the 14 royalties will cover.

ROTH has a Buy rating and a CA$5.75 per share price target on GoldMining, the current share price of which is now about CA$2.33.

“In our view, GoldMining is well-funded to execute on its stated
objectives for 2020 and believe the company should continue to provide
investors with leverage to rising gold prices,” Sekelsky concluded.

Gold Hits 9 Year Highs As USD Sinks

By Orbex

Gold

The yellow metal has seen a strong rally this week with price breaking out to fresh 2020 highs.

The move comes despite equities remaining near recent highs and is primarily driven by the sell-off in the US dollar.

The greenback has come under renewed selling pressure this week amidst growing fears of a second wave of COVID-19. Currently, over 40 states are reporting new highs in infection numbers.

The US has come under widespread criticism for its handling of the virus. Some states are needing to reintroduce lockdown measures to combat a fresh outbreak of the virus.

US unemployment claims on Thursday came in lower than expected. This suggests that the post-lockdown recovery in the economy is continuing this month.

The June jobs report highlighted record growth in employment with nearly 5 million jobs added last month. However, the prospect of further lockdowns is weighing on USD, keeping gold prices supported as traders move back into the safe-haven on a larger scale.

Gold Hits Highest levels Since 2011

Gold price broke out above the 1795.66 level this week, trading back up to their highest level since 2011. While price holds above here, the next level to watch is the 2011 closing high of 1823.25.

As price continues to move higher within the rising wedge pattern, traders should keep an eye on the RSI indicator as any bearish divergence could highlight a potential reversal lower.

Silver

Silver prices have been well supported this week amidst a perfect combination of higher equities prices, higher gold prices, and a lower US dollar.

With USD likely to remain under pressure in the near term, the outlook remains bullish for silver. Recent industrial data sets have helped support silver as manufacturing continues to recover, reinforcing the view of a demand recovery for silver.

However, this view could change if the virus in the US causes further lockdowns.

Tensions between the US and China could also pose downside risks for silver if hostilities lead to a breakdown in trade negotiations. Prices were heavily weighed down by the two-year US/China trade war which decimated demand levels in silver.

Silver Approaching 2019 Highs

Silver prices have broken out above the bearish trend line and the 18.83 level this week. While price remains above the broken trend line, focus remains on a further grind higher.

The 2019 highs of 19.62 are the next upside area to watch. Should price break back below the trend line, the 17.42 level is the main support to note ahead of deeper support at the 16.53 level.

Analyst: Kincora Copper Nails It on Very First Hole

With a promising hit and the rise in prices for both gold and copper—and indications of more to come—Peter Epstein of Epstein Research believes this explorer has potential for “an exciting outcome.”

By The Gold Report – Source: Peter Epstein for Streetwise Reports   07/08/2020

Investors in Kincora Copper Ltd. (KCC:TSX.V) have had to be patient in allowing management to explore for really big prizes in Mongolia and New South Wales, Australia. This week we learned that it was well worth the wait. On July 6, the company announced an excellent drill result intersecting multiple mineralized skarn zones at its Trundle Park target in Australia’s foremost porphyry region [see July corporate presentation].

The results are noteworthy for at least three reasons: there’s considerable near-surface, high-grade mineralization; as the first of six holes, even better assays could follow (leveraging knowledge gained from this result); and further evidence of an adjacent porphyry system was found.

By far the best mineralization is from 39 meters (39m) to 90m depth. This 51m interval hit 1.17 g/t Au + 0.54% Cu. Included in the 51m is one meter, from 57.6m, of 10.4 g/t gold (Au) + 4.4% copper (Cu). See image below.

51m, less than 90m deep: Very good grades + a porphyry teaser at depth

At current gold and copper prices of US$1,793/ounce and US$2.78/lb., this is an in-situ rock value of ~US$100 = ~CA$135.5/tonne. In gold terms, it’s 1.75 g/t Au equivalent (equiv.). In copper terms, 1.64% Cu equiv. Note: these strong grades will not be indicative of the overall deposit. However, this hole suggests the potential for a nearer-term, standalone open pit.

That’s the sexy part of the assay, the hole also intersected a targeted adjacent “porphyry intrusion system” with broad anomalous mineralization. This assay delivered the most significant intervals to date. Management notes that Trundle is the only brownfield project held by a listed junior in Australia’s foremost porphyry district, the Lachlan Fold Belt (LFB).

John Holliday, technical committee chair, and Peter Leaman, senior VP of Exploration commented: “We are extremely pleased and excited by the results of this first hole. It’s not often one sees such high grades near surface within a porphyry environment. Assay results prove previously announced visual interpretations of multiple zones of significant gold and copper mineralization. This supports the skarn being a standalone target at depths and intervals often mined by open cut and underground methods. . .

“. . .These results from this first hole at the Trundle target, plus visual indications from the second hole 8.5 km north at the Mordialloc target, are very encouraging. The Trundle project appears to sit within the interpreted Northparkes Intrusive Complex, placing Kincora in a unique global setting as the only listed junior exploring a large system in a brownfield field setting.”

Breaking: Dr. Copper says “reports of my death are greatly exaggerated”

The timing of the press release could hardly be better. Copper has bounced back strongly from US$2.10/lb. in mid-March to US$2.78/lb., +32%. Dr. Copper has spoken loud and clear. He/she believes that, even if temporarily slowed, the global electric transportation and green energy revolutions are alive and well.

Dr. Copper is leaning toward a V-shaped recovery. Others seem to agree, look no further then Tesla’s >CA$300 billion valuation for evidence of market sentiment on electric vehicles!

In addition to copper’s irreplaceable role in electric transportation and renewables, copper demand will increase if/when the world’s major economies embark on infrastructure massive spending sprees. Giant infrastructure builds/rebuilds(bridges, tunnels, airports, stadiums, etc.) are highly copper-intensive.

Even if copper demand is tepid, the supply response to the pandemic has been dramatic. Reduced production from countries such as Chile, (where per capita COVID-19 cases are among the worst in the world), Peru, the Democratic Republic of Congo and others, will last several more quarters. Chile is by far the largest producer, larger than the next three copper-producing countries combined in 2019.

It took three paragraphs to sound off on copper, but just one on gold. For years, gold bugs have pointed to fiat currencies, deficit spending, debt issuance, money printing, imminent inflation, etc., pushing gold to US$5,000 or US$10,000/oz. “next year!!” Next year has finally arrived. I’m not predicting US$5,000+/oz. anytime soon, but gold fundamentals are as strong as ever. Bull markets in precious metals last years, not months. Gold is up 31% from its US$1,368/oz. low of March.

A single hole, but a tonne of de-risking as exploration models validated

Turning back to this hole at Trundle, it is the first of two each at three targets in an ongoing 3,800m program. This single assay delivered meaningful de-risking of the Kincora story. Positive visual inspection of the core was verified by strong results that largely confirmed the team’s targeted geological model and exploration strategy. This is critical, because a fear investors have with junior miners is that even talented management teams will run out of money before finding anything promising.

That risk has been moderately reduced (but not eliminated). If results from hole #2 at the Mordialloc target, 8.5 kilometers north of hole #1, are as good or better, Kincora’s valuation might look undervalued compared to peers such as Magmatic Resources (MAG:ASX), Sky Metals (SKY:ASX) and Stavely Minerals (SVY:ASX) that have an average market cap of ~CA$80 million (CA$80M) versus ~CA $25M for Kincora.

To be clear, none of these companies measure up to Alkane Resources Ltd.’s (ALK:ASX; ANLKY:OTCQX) CA$700M market cap, but one cannot rule anything out at this early stage. So far there are just two winners of six holes, but we now know there’s smoke at Trundle. Will any of the next four holes find fire?

Let’s take a step back to revisit the bigger picture. High-grade, near-surface skarn mineralization is exciting, but the pot of gold/copper at the end of the rainbow is one or more porphyry deposits. Results from the first hole, and anticipated results from hole #2, represent a meaningful step closer to the pot of gold/copper.

Director John Holliday has said on the record that he thinks after Alkane’s Boda project, Kincora has the best porphyry play in the district. Likewise, CEO Sam Spring believes Kincora is the leading pure-play porphyry explorer in Australia’s LFB. Make no mistake, they’re biased!

Still, unlike many junior gold/copper districts around the world, there are relatively few juniors active in the area. I mentioned three, there are about a dozen with meaningful flagship projects in the region. By contrast, Canada’s Golden Triangle has three dozen, or more.

Readers are invited to view Kincora’s July corporate presentation. On pages 29 and 30, management places their drill result into context. While the first drill hole at Trundle did not contain the highest grades or widest intercepts, its high-grade mineralized zones are closer to surface than some peers. And, this is just the first hole!

The skarn and porphyry intrusion system setting intersected is common among large porphyry systems. For example, in the Macquarie Arc, the Big and Little Cadia skarns at Cadia were important to the discovery of multiple adjacent “causative intrusions and deposits” that make up the largest porphyry system in Australia. Kincora’s strategy is to drill to depths at which porphyries at Cadia, Northparkes, Cowal and Boda are situated.

Management, Board and Technical Team: Now the hard part

The management, board, technical team and advisers share in this initial exploration success. But, where does this leave the company? I think the considerable strength of Kincora’s team will be amplified in coming months as it leverages the valuable knowledge gained from the first six holes. Kincora found smoke at Trundle, it’s now trying to locate the porphyry fire.

CEO Spring provided me with this exclusive quote: “What we intersected near-surface in hole #1 is a skarn. What we’re testing for in hole #2, and at the bottom of hole #1, is a porphyry (the presumed source of mineralization in the skarn). At the Mordialloc target, hole #2, we don’t see a skarn—we knew that only a porphyry was the target. What we intersected in hole #2 suggests that we’re closer to the core of a porphyry system (which, if you hit, can easily be a company maker) than in hole #1, without yet hitting it.”

While some investors are rightfully congratulating the team, I suggest that their jobs have only just begun. Now that we know there’s probably something meaningful (although not necessarily economic) at Trundle, the pressure is on to advance the project efficiently and cost effectively. This is where tremendous experience and skill sets come into play.

In looking at the bios, we have Mr. McRae, with nearly 30 years’ at Rio Tinto Plc (RIO:NYSE; RIO:ASX; RIO:LSE; RTPPF:OTCPK), president and CEO of three of Rio’s segments. Mr. Lehman has >40 years’ experience, mostly with BHP Billiton Ltd. (BHP:NYSE; BHPLF:OTCPK), including Tier 1 discoveries under his belt. He’s a world-renown expert in copper and gold deposits. Mr. Holliday, based in New South Wales (NSW), has >30 years’ with BHP and Newcrest Mining Ltd. (NCM:ASX)—a principal discoverer of the world-class Cadia copper-gold porphyry in NSW. Very few, if any, are better suited to lead Kincora’s technical team.

CEO Sam Spring has been a senior exec at Kincora for eight years. Prior he held a number of positions including lead mining/metals analyst at Goldman Sachs and various roles evaluating, advising or negotiating merger and acquisition (M&A) activities in multiple jurisdictions. Readers are encouraged to also review the bios of other highly talented contributors above and below. This is a group who have done this before; discovered, developed, permitted, constructed, funded and commissioned mines.

I doubt Kincora is going to ride this horse across the finish line, but the experts working on Trundle, and Kincora’s other high-profile targets in NSW, understand exactly what potential acquirers are looking for. They’ve created vast shareholder wealth in past endeavors. With continued successes they’re on track to potentially deliver another exciting outcome for Kincora Copper stakeholders.

The Simon-Ehrlich Bet Did Not Settle the Question

By Money Metals News Service

Is everyone familiar with the bet between Julian Simon and Paul Ehrlich? Ehrlich wrote a book titled The Population Bomb. He held a pessimistic view of the future, in which population growth would outstrip resources (essentially the same as Thomas Malthus).

Simon disagreed. So in 1980, they made a famous bet. Ehrlich thought that the real cost of commodities would be higher in 10 years. Simon said they would be lower.

They picked a group of five metals, to watch their prices. And made their bet, just at the end of the cycle of rising interest rates and rising prices that had begun after WWII.

The majority of the decade occurred under the falling cycle which still prevails today. It is likely that neither of them were aware of the correlation between interest rates and prices observed by Gibson 57 years prior to their bet. In any case, in 1980, all they had experienced for decades was the relentless rise of both. So Paul Ehrlich would seem to have taken a very conventional view. And Simon would be the bold contrarian.

Between 1980 and 1990, three of the metals fell in price. But the bet was not based on what people call the nominal price. This is, you know, the actual price paid by actual buyers to actual sellers who actually mine and smelt actual metal. It’s something else.

Primer in Monetary Pseudoscience

The value of the dollar is falling, and therefore economists seek a way to adjust the dollar. If such a way could be found, then one could compare the inflation-adjusted 1980 dollar to the inflation-adjusted 1990 dollar. Or the 1900 dollar. Or the 2020 dollar.

It seems a simple idea, as pseudoscience often does. It’s tempting and convenient. You just have to design a basket of consumer good. You just presume that these goods are a proper and representative measure of the things people buy.

Never mind that even the advocates of this approach do not agree on which goods should be included and which excluded.

Also, you ignore when, say, horse-drawn buggies are replaced by cars and hence there is no more need for buggy whips. Plus don’t mention improvements in the goods themselves. A 1980 car is not remotely comparable to a 2020 car. The 1980 car was before even that beacon of mediocrity known as the “K Car”.

Anyways, pay no need to this cognitive mess. And heed not your third grade math teacher, who said that you cannot add apples to oranges. Instead, be mesmerized by modern monetary magicians who insist that you absolutely can, if you’re making an index which includes apples and oranges and fuel and cars.

You just need to take a weighted average of the prices of the arbitrarily-chosen goods. Oh, by the way, you have to assume that consumer goods have constant real value. This is necessary to make the next Grand Canyon leap to the notion that consumer goods prices can be used to adjust the unit of measure of value itself.

Oh. Sorry. We forgot one more assumption: that monetary debasement is a scalar; that is, there is only one dimension. One way that debasement affects the dollar. And therefore we need only look at one variable. Consumer prices.

Don’t worry, boys and girls, we are doing science!

With those unwarranted assumptions and bogus inferences behind us, we have a consumer price index (CPI). We’re ready for the part of the science experiment that is guaranteed to amaze the parents and younger siblings of any 8-year old with a science experiment kit. He dips a white strip of paper into a glass containing clear liquid, and… presto chango abracadabra… the strip turns blue!

We look at the year-on-year change of the CPI, and adjust the dollar accordingly. For example, if CPI doubled between 2021 and 2022, then the 2022 dollar is adjusted to be worth half of the 2021 dollar.

The Cash Value

There are two reasons why people promote junk science. One is that it’s easier than doing real science. The other is that it promotes a view they arrived at non-scientifically. They use pseudoscience to bolster their financial interests or political policies.

While it is certainly true that this attempt to adjust the dollar is easy and tempting, that does not fully explain the prevalence and vehemence of this approach. It would be even easier to measure the dollar in gold (but that is the One Thing That Must Not Be Done).

Our monetary central planners—and their court-economists—prefer to redirect everyone’s attention away from the grave harms that come from their relentless counterfeiting of credit, and their endlessly falling interest rate. So monetary criticism is channeled into the relatively harmless pastime of consumer price obsession.

The Switcheroo

The Simon-Ehrlich bet hinged, not on the nominal prices of their selected commodities (metals), but on their real prices. That is, fictitious prices that no one buys or sells, based on the adjustment to the dollar which is based on changes in the CPI.

All five metals dropped in real terms. Simon won the bet. And everyone assumes the bet settled the debate between the two men. Not quite.

In the haste to find an easy way to adjust the dollar, those who would perform monetary science have overlooked a subtle but profound flaw in their methodology. And it fatally undermines the Simon-Ehrlich bet.

To see the mistake, let’s look at how consumer goods are manufactured. A major ingredient is commodities. Another major ingredient is energy—and the major ingredient in energy production is a commodity (e.g. oil). Consumer prices are heavily dependent on commodity prices.

To calculate the real prices of commodities, they are:

  1. Starting with the nominal prices of commodities
  2. adjusting these nominal prices
  3. by adjusting for inflation the unit of measure itself, the dollar
  4. which is done by measuring changes in the prices of consumer goods
  5. that depend heavily on commodity prices!

Let that sink in. They want to calculate the real price of each commodity. So they adjust the dollar. The adjustment is based on the price of the goods made from the commodity.

It’s a self-referential calculation.

It should be clear that if you used a commodity price index to adjust the dollar (instead of the consumer price index), then it would show that real commodity prices are not changing at all.

This is because the dollar would be adjusted by precisely the amount that the nominal prices of the commodities changed, and therefore the new real price would be the same as the original nominal price.

With CPI used as the adjustor, real commodity prices do change. They change because commodities are not 100% of the cost of consumer goods. Generally, manufacturers become more efficient as they keep optimizing their businesses. Parts that were once made of metal, are replaced with plastic. Plastic parts can be made lighter, by making them thinner where strength is not needed.

Manufacturers are also improving their products, adding more features. Just compare a 2020 car to that 1980 car. The 2020 car does not weigh any more (it probably weighs less), so by this rough measure the present-day car does not use more commodities than the 1980 car. However, a much greater quantity of other ingredients go into it, such as engineering labor and manufacturing tools.

Meanwhile, regulators and taxinators are fighting this relentless drive to reduce ingredients and hence costs, by force the inclusion of more and more useless ingredients.

These are ingredients that consumers do not value, and often do not even know about. For example, expanding employee bathrooms to be ADA-compliant. Or the legal fees related to audits, licenses, and regulatory inquiries.

Economists blithely say that the dollar has lost purchasing power, but the dollar is actually buying more than ever before. It’s just buying different things, such as compliance officers.

The Simon-Ehrlich bet hinged on the proportion of the cost of consumer goods that comes from the raw commodity ingredient cost relative to the other ingredients including useless ingredients.

In other words, if useless ingredients forced onto retailers and manufacturers grow into a larger and larger percentage of the consumer price of the goods, then by definition raw commodities are a smaller percentage of the consume price.

And as an artifact of this shift in proportion, the inflation-adjusted price of commodities is reduced from what it would be.

Julian Simon vs Paul Ehrlich

This is not what Julian Simon and Paul Ehrlich believed they were betting on. They thought they were betting on the ancient zero-sum fallacy. They thought they were settling the question of whether man’s reason increases productive capacity at a faster or slower rate than his libido increases the population.

For what it’s worth, we believe that reason wins hands-down. There is no question today that the quality of life is better in 2020 than it was in 1980. Perhaps we do not consume more commodities, or maybe we do, but we eat more and we have better-made and better-functioning products.

We have got to get monetary science out of its Medieval period. Today, most thinking about money is as scientific as thinking about astronomy was prior to Copernicus. In the five centuries since he taught the heliocentric model, the methods of science were developed. They desperately need to be applied to money and credit.

West Red Lake Gold Doubles in Eight Days

By The Gold Report

Source: Bob Moriarty for Streetwise Reports   07/07/2020

Bob Moriarty of 321gold explains why he has invested in this company.

In the past few weeks the resource markets have begun to show investors what they can expect when the market understands the meaning of the hyperinflation headed our way. While I believe the DSI and rampant speculation are giving a signal for a correction soon, I can’t predict if it will be a small burp or a serious drop.

I can predict the general market led by the Nasdaq. Think of a falling safe. The overall markets are more insane than I have ever seen or read of.

The US has painted itself into a corner by overstating the virus cases by hundreds of percent. Now Europe has put the EU off limits to incoming Americans. Welcome to the new world brought to you by the gang of fools.

It simply is not possible for a country with 5% of the world’s population to have 25% of the world’s virus cases. The CDC even admits the tests will show positive for any flu or prior cold. How wonderful. Now the government is lying about absolutely everything.

Investors are starting to understand the real meaning of pouring stacks of hundred dollars bills onto a bonfire. While the thought of free money certainly dances through our heads like that of the sugar plum fairy through the mind of a five year old, there is no free lunch. The money came from somewhere and has to be paid back either through taxes, default or good old fashioned hyperinflation.

I’m in the hyperinflation camp. That is more a function of citizens losing faith in their government than a purely monetary event. I don’t care if you are a die hard Red or a die hard Blue, it should be clear to anyone with eyes and at least half a brain that the US is led by a gang of fools. While I am deeply offended by the constant “ME, ME, ME, ME” coming from the president as he practices his opera notes, when I watch the presumed Democratic candidate, Joe Biden announce, “I am going to defeat Joe Biden” I feel certain he is 100% correct.

Sigh!!

Own some gold and silver and maybe a resource company or two. You can’t print gold and there is no counter-party risk.

Three weeks ago the IR guy for West Red Lake Gold Mines Inc. (RLG:CSE; RLGMF:OTCBB) contacted me and pitched me on the company. It was compelling. They are a 62% owner of a joint venture in the Red Lake District with significant drill results. My comment to the West Red Lake guy was that they needed to start telling their story. With intercepts last year of 14.18 g/t Au over 7.8 meters and 12.14 g/t Au over 13.5 meters and others almost as nice, their biggest problem was visibility.

I also was convinced enough that they had a good story that I went out and bought some shares at $0.08 a month ago. The price of the shares went up and down as lots of companies do but volume increased. Then the shares doubled in the last eight days. I realized then that I was a genius. Actually a lot of other stocks have woken up in the last month and doubled so maybe I’m not that big a genius.

Investors should look at the presentation. At blocks greater than a 1-gram cutoff, the actually inferred resource is 1.352 million ounces at an average grade of 4.48 grams. RLG would own 62% of that or 838,000 ounces. The outstanding drill results from last year in the NT Zone are not figured into the 43-101 so West Red Lake is sitting on more gold than the numbers show.

West Red Lake recently completed a private placement and has just started a planned 3000-meter drill program for this year. The NT Zone is the primary focus. There will be a flow of news starting in about six weeks and continuing for months.

West Red Lake Gold has about 20 million warrants expiring over time exercisable at $0.10. With the shares solidly in the money people selling shares to exercise warrants will both provide great liquidity and $2 million in cash for more follow up exploration.

RLG isn’t as good a deal as it was a couple of weeks ago but probably it’s a lot better deal than what prices will be when hyperinflation hits. This is a time to get prepared for the disaster we know is coming.

To the extent that everyone that owns shares is somewhat biased, I am biased so you should do your own due diligence. West Red Lake Gold is an advertiser. Do your own due diligence

Firm Establishes NSRs on 14 Projects, Creates New Gold Royalty Company

By The Gold Report

Source: Streetwise Reports   07/07/2020

A Haywood Securities report notes the moves by GoldMining “demonstrates an intention to seek to unlock further value from GOLD’s unique portfolio.”

In a June 24 research note, Haywood Securities analyst Colin Healey reported that GoldMining Inc. (GOLD:TSX; GLDLF:OTCQX) will create net smelter returns royalties (NSRs) between 0.5% and 2% on 14 of its gold projects and hold them in its newly formed, wholly owned subsidiary, Gold Royalty Co.

“GoldMining is taking the first step in positioning its portfolio for increased visibility to investors of royalty streaming companies which tend to trade at a substantial premiums to the respective net asset values [average of 1.7x net asset value),” Healey commented.

Now, existing and investors can get exposure to the new company, which should generate demand for the stock and, thus, put positive price pressure on it. Haywood recommends buying GoldMining to “take advantage of the unwarranted market discount and new catalyst.”

As for a breakdown of the 14 NSRs, there are two at 2%, 11 at 1% and one at 0.5%. They all are on projects at various stages, most with an established contemporary resource but no economic study. Defined gold resources of all of the projects amount to about 25.2 million ounces.

“Establishing the NSRs upfront, prior to negotiating any specific transaction on a specific asset, allows GoldMining to set the baseline for basis and unified terms of the NSRs,” Healey highlighted.

The Vancouver-based junior resource firm also benefits from keeping the royalties in a wholly owned subsidiary, according to Healey. One, it creates a future catalyst in the form of a spin out of Gold Royalty Co. Two, GoldMining maintains control in the event of negotiations with another entity interested in acquiring one or more of its assets. Three, the company continues to have exposure to future discoveries and resource growth at its projects.

Haywood has a Buy rating and a CA$4.25 per share target price on GoldMining, a high bar Healey noted because his firm believes that “management could execute and unlock additional value in the stock.” Haywood considers the GoldMining team, with its creativity and capital markets experience, to be one of GoldMining’s “core strengths.”

“We think this move demonstrates an intention to seek to unlock further value from GOLD’s unique portfolio and investors will be rewarded in a flat or rising gold price environment,” the analyst concluded.

GoldMining’s shares are trading today at about CA$1.68 each.

Gold bulls with a clear focus on 1,800 USD – a break ahead?

By Admiral Markets

economic events

Source: Economic Events July 8, 2020 – Admiral Markets’ Forex Calendar

When looking at the price action in Gold, it may not be clear why a deeper look is worth our time. Well, we think, for several reasons, that we can expect a sharp move to be on the way.

While the precious metal has so far failed to substantially break above 1,800 USD, the stabilisation slightly below may surprise.

In fact, the Fed’s balance sheet shrank by another 163 billion USD last week, resulting in the third week in a row that the Fed saw a reduction here. While this might surprise at first glance, a deeper look shows what’s happening: the reduction results out of a continuing decline in demand for the US central bank’s USD swap lines from foreign central banks like the ECB, BoJ or BoE.

While the balance sheet reduction continues this week with 130 billion USD of FX swaps expiring, Gold traders and precious metal traders in general seem to prepare and anticipate a more aggressive approach from the Fed in the near future, most likely to happen once Equity markets start to see sharp volatility again.

Once this happens, chances become elevated that we get to see an attempt to break above 1,800 USD, then to the highest levels since 2012, levelling the path rather sooner than later up to the current all-time high around 1,920 USD.

Technically the mode on a daily time-frame in Gold stays bullish as long as we trade above 1,660 USD:

Analyst Provides a Glimpse into Gold Explorer’s Upcoming PEA

By The Gold Report

Source: Streetwise Reports   07/06/2020

A potential mining scenario for Troilus Gold’s gold-copper project is presented in a PI Financial report.

In an April 22 research note, analyst Philip Ker reported that PI Financial updated its model on Troilus Gold Corp. (TLG:TSX; CHXMF:OTCQB) to account for the envisioned operating scenario and upcoming preliminary economic assessment (PEA) on its Troilus gold project.

Ker first recapped results of all drilling done on the project. The most recent drill results, he noted, from the Southwest zone suggest potential to expand the Troilus project resource beyond the current estimates of 4.71 million ounces (4.71 Moz) of gold equivalent (Au eq) in the Indicated category and 1.76 Moz of Au eq in the Inferred.

Previous drilling, done in 2018 and 2019, extended the mineralization in the J zone (J4-J5 pits) and the Z87 pit to a vertical depth of about 500 meters. Expansion drilling around the Z87 pit led to the discovery of Z87 South and the delineation of Southwest.

The analyst next delivered the highlights of PI Financial’s newly conceived mining scenario at Troilus. It incorporates an open-pit operation with a 16-year mine life. The project would produce 158,000 ounces of Au eq per year, or 2.5 Moz of Au eq over the life of mine, assuming recovery rates of 93% for gold and 85% for copper and mill throughput of 20,000 tons per day.

Costs are estimated at US$225 million in initial capex and $96 million in sustaining capital. “We highlight current infrastructure lends to derisking efforts and is likely to reduce upfront capex and project development timeline,” Ker commented.

Assuming a gold price of US$1,500 per ounce, the resulting Troilus project economics would be an estimated $200 million net present value at an 8% discount.

Ker also wrote that “given the modest production profile, favorable operating jurisdiction and attractive forex rates, we see the Troilus project emerging as a viable bolt-on asset for a producer as an acquisition target.”

PI Financial has a Buy rating and a CA$1.55 per share target price on Troilus Gold, whose current share price is about CA$1.11.

Analyst: Creation of Gold Royalty Company Could Unlock Future Value

By The Gold Report

Source: Streetwise Reports   07/06/2020

An H.C. Wainwright & Co. report discusses GoldMining’s new royalty company as well as a technical report.

In a June 25 research note, H.C. Wainwright & Co. analyst Heiko Ihle reported two GoldMining Inc. (GOLD:TSX; GLDLF:OTCQX) news events.

The first, most recent development, Ihle relayed, is that the Vancouver, British Columbia-headquartered company created a wholly owned gold-focused royalty subsidiary, called Gold Royalty Corp., that will contain existing and future net smelter royalty returns on its projects and “may unlock future shareholder value.” The company’s “extensive portfolio includes 14 recently created net smelter return (NSR) royalties spread across GoldMining’s current asset portfolio,” the analyst noted.

In the future, GoldMining could expand its new company’s portfolio by buying back project rights held by third parties and add more shareholder value via a possible spinoff, initial public offering, merger or sale of Gold Royalty, Ihle stated.

“GoldMining therefore appears poised to benefit from a future rerating if management can produce tangible value from its new subsidiary,” because royalty and streaming companies tend to trade at higher values than explorers and producers, Ihle commented.

Second, Ihle indicated, GoldMining filed an NI 43-101 technical report, containing an initial Inferred resource estimate, on its Yarumalito gold-copper project in Colombia. The pit-constrained resource, based both on porphyry and epithermal mineralization, consists of 1.23 million ounces (1.3 Moz) of gold and 129.26 million pounds of copper, or 1.50 Moz gold equivalent. Grades average 0.58 grams per ton gold and 0.09% copper.

GoldMining is expected to conduct future exploration and drill programs at Yarumalito, which are needed to “better define the geometry and continuity of the higher-grade epithermal veining” that seems to “overprint the porphyry-style mineralization,” Ihle pointed out. The latter measures about 2,000 meters (2,000m) in an east to west direction, 500–1,000 meters north to south and 650m in vertical depth. Only 55 holes were drilled historically at Yarumalito.

Ihle concluded that GoldMining is expected to overall “continue unlocking shareholder value through advancing its exploration-stage asset base, especially as gold prices continue to remain strong” and “could enter into a transaction that should provide liquidity to GoldMining as well as a more tangible value to Gold Royalty Co.”

H.C. Wainwright has a Buy rating on GoldMining with a CA$6.50 per share target price; the current share price is CA$2.35.
