      There’s the usual indoctrination there. Capitalism didn’t fail anyone. Crony capitalism/Fascism did and it is a form of collectivism just like socialism.

      Just like Bush, Obama, and Hillary, Trump is another collectivist.

    Lawrence Roulston joins Nickel One $NNN

    This is the first time that distinguished #Roulston is joing a public company´s Advisory Board and as such, he must be convinced not only of Nickel One´s established management team but also of the great potential of the company´s exploration projects. Roulston´s comment: “I was attracted to Nickel One by their planned acquisition of an exceptional #PGE #copper #nickel project in #Finland, and by their vision to further capitalize on the multitude of opportunities available in northern #Europe. The enormous geological potential of that region is largely unrecognized and Finland is one of the highest rated countries in the world for mining investment.”

    Oceanus Resources: Advancing The El Tigre Gold & Silver Project To A 1,000,000+ Ounce Open Pit Mine
    by Ceo Technician

      An interesting comment from Goldfinger on Oceanus Resources recently:

      @Goldfinger – “Just had a call with Oceanus Resources $OCN CEO Glenn Jessome. $OCN is focused on its El Tigre property in the Sonora Province of Mexico. ”

      “El Tigre was the site of a historic underground mine which operated from 1903 to 1938 producing 353,000 ounces of gold and 67.4 million ounces of silver. The historic mining was chasing high grade veins underground with grades averaging 1308g/t Ag and 7.54g/t Au. ”

      “Oceanus is envisioning an open pit heap-leach mine going to 150-200 meters depth and at least 100 meters width. Recent drilling includes holes grading 121.1 meters of 1.38 g/t gold eq consisting of 1.02 g/t gold and 27.0 g/t silver & a drill core which had not been assayed by the previous owner (El Tigre Silver) came back with an impressive 127.0 meters of 2.16 g/t gold eq consisting of 1.80 g/t gold and 27.5 g/t silver.”

      “There are also high grade historic gold & silver veins to the north of the main zone which have not seen any exploration drilling activity. $OCN plans to move some rigs up there in mid-2017 to see if there is ‘district’ potential to the El Tigre story. #hotpick”


      Just curious – Has anyone else been following Oceanus Resources here at the KER?

        Couple of posts from yesterday I put up you may have missed.i put them up later in the evening….was wondering about it but not the exchange it’s on and wanted your thoughts about that exchange

          Hey Wolfster – Yes with Pasinex the choices are more limited:

          PNX.F on the Frankfurt Exchange, PSE.CN on the CNQ, and PSXRF on the OTC. There is also PNX.DE on XETRA and PNX.SG on the Stuttgart exchange.

          PSE is the main ticker to follow but PNX.F gets a fair bit of volume as well. The OTC just moves in fits and starts and is more thinly traded with wide bid/ask spreads.

          It’s a nice little Zinc miner though, that has room for a larger percentage move to the upside, but some jurisdiction risk being in Turkey.

      Excelsior says:

      Term limits are the right answer, but they’ve made it clear nobody that votes on making it so will have that go through on their watch = more lifetime politicians that spend more time campaigning or worried about re-election, than making a real difference and taking the tough stand.

        All the more reason to make it an issue, let the people see which politicians oppose term limits, and axe them at the next election. If there are enough Americans that have a clue…

    Now is not the time to go long base metals. They are simply playing catch up to the pop the broader commodity complex got this year. They will recouple with the rest of the complex, if they already haven’t, and head lower over time.

    As long as the yen is being printed faster than dollars, commodities are a short. gold peaked vs yen way back in 2013 and the monthly ratio chart looks like gold is about to head lower vs yen, which can’t be good since yen is also headed lower in absolute terms.

    I’ll grant that we can get a counter trend bounce in yen once it hits its near term low, but there is literally no bullish case for yen whatsoever. Commodities will only start a new bull market once the Fed becomes easier than the BoJ, and that doesn’t look likely any time soon.
