        Just short comment on Novo and the new discovery. I like John Kaiser a lot but he has it dead wrong about the Hammersley Basin being part of or a remnant of the Wits Basin. The significance of Quinton’s theory is that all basins of that similar age will have gold because it precipitated out of solution. Hammersley is a totally different basin but with a boatload of gold.

        Quinton was working on the eastern side of the basin and that’s where the Beaton’s Creek resource is. When he heard about the nuggets being discovered he went to see Karratha and realized there was an unmapped and unknown conglomerate horizon with massive amounts of gold so he staked something like 9800 square km or 320 square miles. Should his theory be correct it could be the biggest discovery in history.

        But it was not part of the Witwatersrand Basin and the gold was not in bedrock but in a conglomerate horizon just like Beaton’s Creek and the Wits but a lot richer than either.

          Bob M – I appreciate that comment, because in previous interviews Quinton had remarked that his premise was based on the age of the rock being a key criteria in those conglomerates. Thanks.

            Jay Taylor did an interview with Quinton three years ago where his theory is described in some detail. See here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27mYkld_aVw

            Quinton studied the origin of the Wits formation while earning his doctoral degree at the Colorado School of Mines. As suggested in the interview, Quinton’s theory of the origin of gold on planet earth may reframe the geology of how to look at gold exploration in the future.

          Thanks Bob for further clarification on this amazing story. I first bought this diddy on your recommendation back in 2012 and backed up the truck it last fall. It has certainly NOT been an easy ride but I’ve always been blown away by Quinton’s geo-story. “Story” is important in catching the general public’s imagination. I just hope it doesn’t get dumped back to the .95 level again and again, like it has since I bought it. Sometimes its hard to believe in a story when ya wanna/gotta get paid!

      That was a hatchet job by Politico. Clearly Sessions has no fire in his belly to go after corruption; he does not want to rock the boat and go after Hillary and her tax evasion, or Lynch and her unethical behavior, or anything else. Almost 6 months and nothing happening. Maybe Sessions is just getting too old or too established.

      • On July 29, 2017 at 4:42 am,

        Why is the Justice Department not looking into:
        In the meantime computer hard drives and evidence is being destroyed, so time is important.
        Hillary also is being allowed to destroy evidence, although I suspect she may get to hide espionage evidence, she will never be able to hide the tax evasion and charitable foundation miss-handling and corruption no matter how long she is given. (Even with witnesses dying and disappearing)

          Jerry like me Sessions is very old man at least that’s how Susan Lindauer puts it. I’m a bit miffed as 72 doesn’t strike me as ‘very’ old! And to his former credit he changed his mind from being a strict racist to a civil rights veteran. Maybe in his twilight years Trump will give him a second chance to go after Killary.

            Hey, youngster Andy, 72 is not old, unless you’ve become set in your ways. Alas, most politicians, by the time they reach that age, have received too many favors and owe too many to others. Sessions appeared sharp at his confirmation hearing, but …?
            It may be that there are some skeletons buried that he does not wish dug up. With the amount of unconstitutional surveillance the NSA has been doing, that possible blackmail issues are going on too.

        I made a comment before the election that we would see just how powerful the Clinton family is and I think that now we know as demonstrated by the ineffective Republicans.

        What we are seeing right now at the Federal level leads me to believe that the Obama objective will come to fruition.

        The question remains for me, “what is the role of the Republicans in all of this? Remember that Bill; Hillary; Barrack; and, Michele are far from stupid people!

          I don’t know who in their right mind would want to be President either, talk about a can of worms, it is just one huge headache after another.
          I think Trump will be much better off without Priebus, the leaks must stop and if they do I think we can conclude who was the source. I really do not want to see The Clintons back in The White House ever again. If the election in November 2016 was positive at all it certainly could be said it put limitations on Bill and Hillary’s influence and power. Can you imagine how open borders and amnesty would have changed America. DT

            Unfortunately, the U.S. Presidency attracts more egomaniacal personalities that public-minded reformers.
            And Congress attracts more greedy, corrupt personalities than public servants.

    – Cory, hearing nuts-and-bolts mining is good, but London/NYC is still setting the price, the financiers are enforcing the current system, and mining CEOs are still timid about the future of the mining sector. Politics and multinational control still rule this sector. I would be more interested in hearing each individual CEO’s estimation of their personal political environment, as well as multinational attitudes about the precious metal sector in the near and far future (i.e., when is China/Russia going to break the gold cartel?).

    – The US military should not be a Petri dish or top-down social experiment for politicians trying to validate non-conservative socioeconomic theories in a special environment. We used to be a military that emphasized “every soldier is a General”. That is no longer the case. We need to return to those conservative parameters and concrete objectives. I appreciate LTC McKinney’s personal experience as he recalled his company commander experience (I can relate) and his battalion S3/Ops experience. Trump’s decision about LGBT in the military appears to be a purely economical decision – we can’t offer free surgery to an individual for a life-changing decision. The VA is bad enough without giving preferential treatment to a small minority.

    – Mr. Temple is correct – 7 months wasted on partisan politics solely to salvage personal fiefdoms and prevent the President from having any political goals achieved to announce for the 2018 elections. It’s stalemate at its’ worst. But what does the first Republican President do to counter 16 years of bureaucracy-stuffing with agenda-over-law appointees and lackeys?

      Mr. Trump certainly made an economic case that the armed forces should not have to pay for transgender operations, but I wonder if that was really to reduce the appearance of sexism in his decision.
      Of interest is something not reported by the media. The LGBT community represents itself as about 10% of the population. In the military, where there has been a significant economic advantage for transgender wannabees to sign up, the population of LGBT is closer to 3%, so I wonder if the liberal media has actually been hyping this cause.

    Refugee Crisis Tearing Europe Apart – Armstrong

    The European Commission is close to triggering Article 7 on Poland for refusing to accept refugees. Article 7 is called the “nuclear option” that denies a member the right to vote. The Commission is reported to be preparing infringement proceedings against Warsaw for breaching EU law over its plans to bring the judiciary under government control. Under EU law, the Commission may determine that there is a risk of a serious breach if a member goes against the directive of the EU. Poland should simply exit the EU. Italy is drowning in refugees and it is likely to bankrupt that country.

    The entire secret agenda is about the Pension Crisis. The low birthrates in Europe have made politicians assume that the refugees can be put to work to pay taxes to bailout the pensions. Yet in the process, they are indeed changing the culture of Europe.

    Meanwhile, the terrorist attacks continue. On Friday, a failed refugee lacking documentation began stabbing people in a supermarket on Friday in Hamburg yelling ‘Allahu Akbar’ injuring six people before he was tackled by people present. The worst cities are Brussels and Paris and Frankfurt, which used to be very clean, is showing garbage just thrown around in the park by the Euro symbol. London is very booming with tourists still and many European friends who use to go to Greece for holidays switched to Portugal, USA, or Canary Islands.

      Marked, the commission is also mad about Austria closing its borders. Sadly Europe will be Islamified within two generations even if immigration stopped right now.

        The key to making everyone think the same, is to outbreed the population you wish to control. Europe is well on its way to becoming a muslim state. Vote for the same politicos and see what you get. California is one of a few states following Europe’s immigration model.

    It’s Your Money But You Can’t Have It: EU Proposes Account Freezes To Halt Bank Runs

      This is but one more skirmish in the overall war:


      Of particula note (to me) in this infographic is the impact on savings (#2), which includes the fact that you can no longer store wealth “outside the system”; it facilitates negative interest rates (which you cannot avoid); you will be “on the hook” for bank “bail-ins”; you will have limited ability to react to extreme monetary conditions like deflation or inflation.

      • On July 29, 2017 at 2:27 pm,
        JMiller says:


        The risk to depositors of bank bail-ins are overblown. Bank bail-ins in the U.S. only would take place in banks considered to be a systemically important financial institution and would only involve uninsured deposits as well as bondholders. And even then probably only some of the uninsured depositors money will be used. A taxpayer bailout would take place before one penny is lost to an insured depositor.

        The main risk for most people who have money in a bank or credit union is dollar devaluation, hyperinflation, or things that would prevent you from accessing your money such as the grid going down because of an EMP attack or a bank cyber attack. Or may be capital controls being put in place because of bank runs. While these things are not likely to happen in the near future they still must be taking into account.

            I never said that. Please read what I said. A taxpayer bailout (money printing) would take place before one penny would taken from an insured depositor. That is all I said and it is true. The government can print tens of trillions without the public knowing about it. The main risk to insured depositors are not bail-ins. I almost would not even call it a risk.

            Mr. Moriarty,

            Let me clarify what I am saying since I think we are talking about different things. I am talking about insured depositors or more accurately the FDIC insurance fund being “bailed out”. A taxpayer bailout of the FDIC insurance fund will happen before any insured depositors loses any money. I do not know what debt you are referring to.

      JMiller says:

      In the U.S., banks already have the right to stop people from taking most or all of their money out of the bank temporarily. The Federal Reserve’s Regulation D allows banks and credit unions the right to require that the depositor give 7 days written notice to withdraw or transfer all or part of the balance of any time deposit account. A time deposit account is a savings account, negotiable order of withdrawal account (NOW) or money market deposit account (MMDA).

      Certificate of Deposits (CD), also a time deposit account, requires written notice in cases of an early withdrawal prior to the maturity date. Sometimes as much as 30 days. And even then the bank can deny your request.

      Demand deposit accounts, like checking accounts, are not subject to the 7 days written notice. However many checking accounts consist of two sub-accounts – a checking sub-account and a money market sub-account. The bank can reserve the right to require at least 7 days written notice prior to the withdrawal or transfer of any funds from the money market sub-account.

      Granted banks today do not require depositors give them advanced notice to withdrawal money from their account, except for CD early withdrawals, but if there is a bank run, the bank could exercise their right and require that the depositor give at least 7 days written notice to withdrawal or transfer some or all of the money deposited in any time deposit account. And in the case of CDs, deny any early withdrawal requests.

      So I would advise anyone who is very concerned with safety and liquidity, to have as little money as you feel comfortable with in a good local bank or credit union and not to have any that is in a time deposit account. But like I said, that is for people who are very concerned.

    One needs to be tolerant, but there are some things that are right and some things that are wrong…..under any acceptable civilized standard.
    Inalienable rights are not a matter of judgement, whether those rights are god-given or derived from societal considerations. Slavery was wrong and is wrong, even if endorsed and practised in this day by Islam. On that I am judgemental. Theft is wrong. About that I am judgemental. The golden rule, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, the ten commandments are all things about which I accept the judgement of predecessors far smarter than I, because such guidance creates a better society.

    Mr. Bruce McLeod reports


    Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. has arranged a non-brokered private placement pursuant to which it will sell up to 2,105,265 flow-through common shares at a price of $2.85 per share to raise gross proceeds of approximately $6-million. The proceeds from the sale of the flow-through common shares will be used for exploration on the company’s Back River project.

      Very Happy with Sabina’s outcome. I was in and out of SBB 3 different times since 2016 but was a bit nervous this permit would get rejected a 3rd time so was on the sidelines when the news broke. The stock has surged accordingly, and most are correct that it is a takeover target, but most of that has been priced in over the last 2-3 months. (of course if they got taken over there may be 40%+ more upside left).

      Personally I’m happy for them, but am moving on to stories that are not so widely followed and are still at significant value perception arbitrages.

      • On July 29, 2017 at 11:56 am,
        Excelsior says:

        I’d put Sabina in the same category of advanced Development stories with Continental Gold, Atlantic Gold, Victoria Gold, Pilot Gold or Dalradian Resources; where they are absolutely solid projects that are properly valued and will likely get acquired by a larger entity down the road.

        There are also still the Development whoppers like Pretium, Seabridge, Novagold, International Tower Hill mines, etc… that are very capital intensive large projects to bring on line, but have the geological goods. (although some are still very concerned about Pretiums “nugget” effect and continuity. Most predict they’ll throw the “Jewelry Box” high grade material at the mill first to get the market hyped, but then after that initial euphoria….. we’ll see).

        Personally, I’m still very keen on many of the lesser followed development stories in the Gold and Silver space like – of which there are about 50-60 in play.

        Some of the ones that have piqued my interest and still seem to be undervalued and ripe for the pickings are Hummingbird Resources, Orezone, West African Resources, West Kirkland Mining, Newcastle, Minera Alamos, Monarques Gold, Goldquest, Gold Standard Ventures, Entree Gold, Benton Resources, Belo Sun, Amarillo Gold, Pershing Gold, Rupert Resources, Northern Vertex, Telson Resources, TMAC,Winston Gold, Pure Gold, Midas Gold, Minco Silver, Bear Creek Mining, Bayhorse Mining, Alexco, Aurcana Resources, Kootenay Silver, Golden Arrow, Silver Bear Resources, etc……

          Keith Neumeyer and Patrick Donnelly’s First Mining Finance Corp. (FF),(FFMGF) unchanged at 62 cents on 793,000 shares, has received assays of up to 1.39 grams of gold per tonne over 202 metres at its Goldlund project near Sioux Lookout in Northwestern Ontario. (A two-metre interval that averaged 43.28 grams per tonne bolstered the average grade.) The latest assays, the sixth batch in a continuing stream of results, are from another 14 holes drilled in a now completed 24,300-metre phase 1 drill program. There were several long hits of gold, accompanied by narrow high-grade intervals, including a 179-metre zone that averaged 1.13 grams per tonne and a 90-metre interval that assayed 1.32 grams per tonne.

            P.S. – I was able to cash in on the NVO gains, but this should come as no surprise…. Blew my position out way to early once again.

            The rising tide lifts all boats, and some miners will have more leverage to the upside based on their costs, margins, debt load, share structure, and underlying assets.

            However, the marketplace is rewarding good exploration work and good drill holes with a premium valuation (often frothy valuations). I believe many of the companies we discuss on here have the ability to rise into the speculative interest of rising metals prices AND have the potential for great exploration results and drill results. That is why I was invested in Novo in the first place, and feel the same way about most of the stocks I hold. This is going to be a very fun metals and commodities cycle for sure.

        Bonzo, just be prepared for a correction along the way even if it IS destined for 10-20 fold gains. It is critically overbought and getting even more so with Kaiser’s subscribers entering it. From a short to mid term perspective, it WILL run out of buyers and correct before going higher. Of course, the bull who sells faces a risk: from what level will it correct?

        I have been able to buy a lot of companies cheap this year because I sold a lot into last year’s rise. And I do believe that many will ultimately go up 10-20 times from here.

            Yes, agreed Bob M. I’ll also be a buyer on any meaningful corrections, but wonder how many investors feel the same way. Novo may not correct much with so much pent up interest on the sidelines, but my initial concern was how far it had risen before the assays came back and I thought it would pop on the videos and sell on the news. However, now I feel Novo naked, and if the news is encouraging, that the shares may just keep running. I feel justified in trimming on such a move, but in retrospect…. should have left my partial position in place for the ride.

            I’m keeping a close eye on it for sure and will take advantage of any weakness or pullbacks. After seeing it’s strength hold, and interest grow, I’m just concerned there won’t be any meaningful corrections 🙂

      Hi Chartster. Regarding JAG, we commented a great deal earlier in the week on this one. I still hold a significant position in Jaguar Mining, and bought more this last week on the spike down when a larger seller/fund liquidated their shares. It could have been prompted by the news that Brazil was changing their mining code (even though some areas were positive, while others, like increased royalties, were obviously negative).

      Still, the CEO and Investor Relations spoke with a few traders I keep tabs on over at ceo.ca and they stated it was just one larger seller (not Sprott) that was exiting their position, and it got a bit messy, but is mostly done at this point.

      I still feel JAG has sound fundamental drivers, with improving cash costs, and cash reserves. They have 3 active mines in 2 mining complexes, produce near 100,000 ounces of Gold per year, have a mine and milling complex on care an maintenance, a huge development project, and 2 exploration projects.

      If you looked at how JAG measures up to peers on many metrics, they were very undervalued BEFORE this sell down. Now the valuation is getting silly and this stock deserves to be trading several multiples higher.

      I believe JAG will offer significant leverage to rising metals prices once the dust settles and continue to be constructive on this company and their growth profile. Brazil worries me a bit, but not enough to warrant the haircut that came in over the last week.

      Like I said earlier this week, I still see this as Christmas in July as regards to JAG.

          Well Novo has sure had quite a run, and I already sold completely out of it, but the stock continued to run afterwards and I felt like a dummy. The only thing that consoled me a bit was this Rothschild quote:

          “I never buy at the bottom and I always sell too soon.” ~ Baron Nathan Rothschild

          As for putting the funds in JAG and IMPACT I’ve been doing just that very thing recently. I fortified my Impact position over the last few weeks and added big to JAG this last week on the waterfall decline.

          Both of them have great growth potential, but as Matthew mentioned, Impact is probably the better bet for growth, and leverage to a rising Silver price with large exploration upside. I’m very keen to see how they do with their drill program this year.

          As for Jaguar, I remember back in 2010 & 2011 when they were so many multiples higher and a prominent Mid-Tier miner in most of the indexes. JAG crash an burned and had to restructure and roll back shares in the heat of the Bear market, but emerged with all their Mines & Mills and Development/Exploration properties. When I saw them emerge from credit protection I started buying small amounts because I wasn’t sure how things would work out. In late 2015 I started adding more, and in early Jan/Feb of 2016 I added the rest. When things surged in 2016 I trimmed a great deal back into a free ride situation, but have always felt eventually they’d get rerated much much higher on par with their peers.

          For the last few years they’ve continually reduced their costs, and kept their production fairly solid, and the metals prices have crept up since the 2015 bottoming. I see them set up to not only thrive when Gold prices rise into the $1300s, but to blow it out in the $1400’s (likely in 2018/2019).

          The other thing to consider, is that if they brought their other Paciencia mine & mill on care and maintenance back into production they’d likely add another 20K-40K ounce per year back into the equation, and they can do that at higher prices as a kicker.

          They also have their development stage Gurupi Project and exploration project Pedra Branca that can be worked on down the road in their development pipeline.

          My point is that they are really a majorly distressed Mid-Tier producer that are in the hurt locker (similar to Primero). Most investors today forgot how they used to be valued in the prior cycle, and may be shocked at far this one can run over the next few years when they are running on all cylinders.

            that IS some great info! I am considering weighing my reallocation a bit more towards the Impact side of the ledger as it is a quality silver producer in a bit more stable jurisdiction. Brazil has a lot of Olympic+World Cup hangover as well a currency issues. I’m concerned that these headwinds might make nationalization a bit more politically possible than a North American operation. Maybe I should consider a quality Canadian silver company instead?

            Yes, I’m a big fan of Impact for a number of reasons, but it would be the safer bet as far as jurisdictions between Mexico and Brazil. The new laws Brazil is passing regarding mining are a bit of a mixed bag with some helpful changes, and others like rising royalties that are going to eat into the profits of miners. Brazil does have an Olympics hangover for sure, and they are grabbing money wherever they can, but it is a fine line to walk because at one point they’ll kill foreign investment. They are raising the percentage foreign investors can own in businesses, but then hurting the profitability of these companies with the same pen stroke.

            Having said that, the fundamental picture for Jaguar is still far more solid than one would grasp by looking at the share price action over the last year, and that was before this waterfall decline.

    President Trump’s method of breaking news of his policy as Commander and Chief on transgendered military personnel via 3 cryptic tweets was alarming to me. Suddenly the lives of reportedly 15,000 troops were upended. What was Trump’s change based on, whose opinions did he rely on? Was the decision made on purely anectdotal evidence? Did he do it in this way to distract the public from other issues? Why did he not make this a more formal and deliberate process to determine whether transgender people were an asset to the military? We need to understand at one time that the services were segregated by race for the similar reasoning of “social engineering”. And that women and gays were not given combat and other opportunities in the military for similar reasoning. There are many documented instances of transgender soldiers in the U.S. Civil War and there most likely have been in other wars as well. I am not saying whether transgenders should be in the army, but the way Trump handled it was disrespectful to the transgender community and does damage to the relationship between transgenders and the Republican Party.

    Why so much faith in the skills of Anthony Scaramucci? He has no communications or political experience. He probably has no belief in Trumps agenda as he was a Romney guy and then went on to support Jeb Bush and Scott Walker probably because he thought those guys had the best chance. He orginally supported Obama. So although he has lots of money and has had success in financial firms, what does he have that makes him a real political force? He already has made some critical mistakes in his first week in the administration, what makes you think he will not continue with such behavior?

    Are Researchers Underestimating The Cost Of Renewables?

    Oilprice.com – July 29, 2017

    “How should electricity from wind turbines and solar panels be evaluated? Should it be evaluated as if these devices are stand-alone devices? Or do these devices provide electricity that is of such low quality, because of its intermittency and other factors, that we should recognize the need for supporting services associated with actually putting the electricity on the grid? This question comes up in many types of evaluations, including Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE), Energy Return on Energy Invested (EROI), Life Cycle Analysis (LCA), and Energy Payback Period (EPP).”

    “Wind and solar are not really stand-alone devices when it comes to providing the kind of electricity that is needed by the grid. Grid operators, utilities, and backup electricity providers must provide hidden subsidies to make the system really work.”

    “This problem is currently not being recognized by any of the groups evaluating wind and solar, using techniques such as LCOE, EROI, LCA, and EPP. As a result, published results suggest that wind and solar are much more beneficial than they really are. The distortion affects both pricing and the amount of supposed CO2 savings….”

      I believe this to be a valid question. What I was told by a Duke Energy supervisor while touring his Raleigh control station in 2006 was “Electricity is sold – and gone – as soon as it is produced.” Intermittent sources such as solar/wind may let the coal/nuclear dynamos spin down a bit for a while, but it’s not going to turn off those sources.

      If you want “inside the box” solutions, look at molten-salt thorium nuclear reactors. “Outside the box” has more solutions, but the government will not let us think outside the box…

        Great point jhpace1. This is exactly why BackUp Batteries and Energy Storage is such a crucial component of utilizing intermittent Renewable Energy Sources like Solar and Wind. With Energy Storage the peak energy spikes CAN be stored for future use, but you are correct that people that believe energy can be stored in the Electric grid are mistaken. It is used or lost on the grid, so large industrial Batteries are going to be part of the solution.

        As you also eluded to, even though there is keen interest in many to hang their hopes on Renewable sources, they are not going to be able to phase out Nuclear or LNG plants, and Thorium reactors may also gain more prominence. Also there are reactors being planned in developing countries that are either huge by historical standards, or the reverse and small fleets of micro nuclear reactors are also being proposed.

        For the global energy mix, we need as many inputs as possible to meet the growing demands of humans on spaceship Earth.

    > Carmakers’ electric dreams depend on supplies of rare minerals
    Karl West – Saturday 29 July 2017

    “With mining of cobalt and other elements politically and ethically charged, the hunt for alternatives is on…”

    “This is the mother of supply chain headaches, and one hi-tech car manufacturers and electronics firms could do without. At the heart of the global cobalt trade is Glencore. The metals and mining giant produces almost a third (28,300 tonnes) of the world’s annual supply. As much as 65% of this global supply comes from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where cobalt production has fallen this year because of the unstable political situation. This sparked a 90% jump in the price of cobalt to a peak of $61,000 a tonne earlier this month.”

    “The squeeze on cobalt has sent car giants such as Volkswagen scurrying to lock in supply deals with the likes of Glencore. First Cobalt’s Mell said: “I think there is going to be some jockeying for supply.”

    “Demand for other key battery ingredients, such as graphite and lithium carbonate, is also outstripping supply. The current shortage of lithium has seen prices double since 2015. Global lithium demand was 184,000 tonnes in 2015, with battery demand accounting for 40%. Analysts at Deutsche Bank expect demand to increase to 534,000 tonnes by 2025, with battery manufacturers accounting for 70%. Lithium deposits are found mostly in China and Bolivia.”

    “Two South Korean battery makers – Samsung SDI and LG Chem – have responded to the crisis by stepping up development of new power packs that use more nickel and less cobalt.”

    “Other battery pioneers are trialling alternative materials in an attempt to crack the booming energy storage market…. …… The agreement gives EnZinc exclusive rights to a nickel-zinc battery for use in electric road vehicles, to hybrid cars that use that battery, and microgrids (small localised electric grids that can run independently) of up to 60 megawatts. Burz expects his zinc-based battery technology to be ready for market in about two years, with another year to gear up production.”

    “Lithium-ion batteries can include other materials such as magnesium, cadmium, manganese and cobalt oxide. They also use a flammable electrolyte, which makes them more risky than lead-acid batteries. EnZinc’s solution is to incorporate less-volatile metals – zinc and nickel – in a battery with sponge-like silicon electrodes.”

        Excelsior says:

        That’s an interesting thought jhpace1, but honestly if demand in REEs spike there were dozens of deposits identified in the Rare Earth bubble of 2010-2012 that could be brought back into the limelight, so there are likely plenty of reserves to fuel both the Battery and the Super magnet craze. The “heavy” REEs Neodymium and Dysprosium are the main metals used for that and quite a few deposits were targeted before the pricing collapsed. A good demand crunch would help the sector out dramatically and maybe investors would take things a bit more seriously and be less dismissive of their role in modern society.
