    Newmont cashing in quite a few of their NOVO chips at $1.60CAD a share on a Friday after hours. Sweetheart deal, takeover ploy or what?

    Newmont Canada FN Holdings ULC Disposes of Securities of Novo Resources Corp.

    TORONTO, Sept. 1, 2017 /CNW/ – Newmont Canada FN Holdings ULC (“Newmont Canada”) announced that on August 31, 2017 it sold 11,830,268 common shares (“Shares”) in the capital of Novo Resources Corp. (“Novo”) (TSX.V:NVO) representing approximately 9.9% of the total Shares outstanding through a private agreement for proceeds totalling CDN$18,928,428.80 or CDN$1.60 per Share. Newmont Canada’s percentage ownership of Shares reduced from approximately 14.9% (17,760,000 Shares) to approximately 5.0% (5,929,732 Common Shares) as a result of the transaction.

    Newmont Canada has no current intention to acquire any Shares, but may, depending on market and other conditions, acquire beneficial ownership or control of the Shares or other securities of Novo whether through market transactions, private agreements, treasury issuances, exercise of convertible securities or otherwise.

    Stockhouse post – RE:There are two very suspicious details about

    My take on this is that this deal was struck in July when the price was similar to the strike price of $1.60. Why else would Newmont give the shares at such a discount. But Newmont is an insider with greater than 10% holding. Why did they not report it? I suspect that for the buyer’s reasons, they did not want this to become public so maybe the deal was a handshake deal in July that was consumated yesterday with signing of the legal papers. At such time, it becomes official and Newmont has to report it.

    But why would Newmont want to divest itself of so many Novo shares when they have access to the bulk sample results. Didn’t someone say that they did their own sample? And didn’t QH work for them at one time so he should have good connections?

    Perhaps Newmont did not want to be an insider going after Artemis considering Novo has a JV with Artemis. I do not know the technicalities of that but it would seem to complicate matters if your JV partner’s insider is doing a hostile takeover of the JV partner! Maybe they could have sold 5% and been under the 10% threshold but whoever they made the deal with wanted more action. The question would be then, why would Newmont allow another big gold company muscle in on Novo? My guess is that the buyer is not another big gold company but something else. And once Newmont swallows Artermis, they will be back buying up Novo shares.

    Purely speculation of course. But it does not make sense unless Newmont is going to make a decision like this based on the one sample they took. And that does not make any sense.

    As someone mentioned, next week might be VERY interesting.

      Funny how they did this share switch on Friday of a long weekend. Anything is possible, I repeat anything, except for to say it is a big move that will be wildly speculated on until next week when the fog clears. I hope it works out in the shareholders favor so the whole junior resource market gets a lift. DT

      Insightful article Jerry. Our country definitely is providing a beneficial environment for a lot of folks who truly wish us harm. I find it the environment created by the political correctness advocates to be counter, in many cases, to the teachings of both the Old Testament and the New Testament.

    Turnbull invests $100m to secure mining investment, drive discoveries
    SEPTEMBER 2 2017

    “The Turnbull government will commit $100 million to secure private investment in greenfield mineral exploration across the country to drive a new wave of discoveries and restart the flagging mining sector in its west.”

    “WA had been the biggest beneficiary of the once-in-a-century mining boom during the first decade of the 2000s and into the start of this decade, but has become the country’s worst-performing economy as mining investment abated.”

    “Turnbull said the new Junior Mineral Exploration Tax Credit (JMETC) would allow the tax losses in greenfield exploration companies to be distributed as a credit to Australian resident shareholders.”

    “These tax incentives will encourage ‘junior explorers’ to take risks and to have a go at discovering the next large-scale mineral deposit,” Turnbull said.

    “We want to back enterprise. We want to turn around the greenfields minerals exploration expenditure that has declined by almost 70 percent over the past five years.”

    Hurricane Harvey Makes The Case For Nuclear Power
    James Conca , Forbes Contributor – Sept 1, 2017

    “Hurricane Harvey made land fall in Texas this week and the flooding was historic. What is shaping up to be the most costly natural disaster in American history, the storm has left refineries shut down, interrupted wind and solar generation, caused a constant worry about gas explosions, and caused a chain of events that led to explosions and fires at the Arkema chemical plant that is only the beginning.”

    “Over a fifth of the country’s oil production has been shuttered. Natural gas futures hit a 2-year high as did gasoline prices at the pump.”

    “But the Texas nuclear power plants have been running smoothly.”

    “The two nuclear reactors at the South Texas Project plant near Houston were operating at full capacity despite wind gusts that peaked at 130 mph as the Hurricane made landfall. The plant implemented its severe weather protocols as planned and completed hurricane preparations ahead of Category 4 Hurricane Harvey striking the Texas Gulf Coast on August 25th.”

    “That the nuclear plant is just fine seemed to irk anti-nuclear groups who don’t want to see nuclear ever performing well, even if it helps the storm-wracked people of south Texas when other power sources are failing.”

    “Three watchdog groups, the Sustainable Energy & Economic Development coalition (SEED), the South Texas Association for Responsible Energy and Beyond Nuclear recklessly urged politicians, the owners, and regulators to shut down the plant because of Harvey, even if it hurt residents, emergency workers and hospitals who desperately need that power.”

    “But the regulators and the State would have none of that nonsense, understanding that these groups just peddle fear. The reactors provide 2,700 MW of power to 2,000,000 customers in the area.”

    “U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff are at the plant, constantly assessing the situation and safety aspects. ‘The South Texas Project reactors have been operating safely throughout Harvey and continue to do so,’ NRC spokesman Scott Burnell said. The reactors can be shut down quickly if something develops, but that’s not expected to be necessary.”

    “No other industry was as prepared….”

      Mike says:

      Thanks for sharing this, Excelsior.

      I have been waiting for quite a while now for uranium to pick up and I am encouraged to see any hint that it may be underway anytime soon (John Kaiser made some comments about some of the junior minors and suggested that interest in this area may not pick up until the price of uranium reaches $40/lb or more … check out this interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=8&v=gEqKMASP-cs).

      It all apparently hinges on Japan restarting their reactors, as I’m sure you are well aware, which some say may take a few years yet. Hopefully, it won’t take that long, as I have already been way too early in this area.

      • On September 3, 2017 at 11:06 am,
        Excelsior says:

        Thanks Mike. Yes, after such a downward slog since 2011 there are few sectors as beat up and where sentiment is as trashed as with Nuclear power and the Uranium market. Uranium mining, spot pricing, and longer term off-take contracts are a much more opaque market than investors may be used to with commodities like Oil, or Gold, or Copper, and the supply/demand process is much more complex to get a handle on that than how much Zinc or Nickel will be needed or used this year or next.

        As for the catalysts needed for a recovery in the space it is not a simple solution, like just turning the reactors on in Japan, that is so often parroted by pundits or analysts.

        Most people are inherently lazy when analyzing a commodity or sector and love to just pack things up into throw-away line or thesis and be done with it. We read or hear things like this all the time. “Gold will go up if the dollar goes down,” or “if Trump get his infrastructure budget approved, then Copper will go up,” etc….. As we know, life and investing is not that simple.

        There are dozens of drivers for Gold from how it plays off other currencies (like the Dollar, but also the Yen (or specifically Dollar/Yen ratio), but the Euro and Loonie play their parts), along with the real rates and 10 year and longer term 20+ year treasuries, along with the inverse action in gold versus the general stock indexes, along with fear/volatility indexes from geo-political friction, and then often it is the technical price action that is in the drivers seat using the Gold futures contracts.

        Here’s the point, there is no SINGLE driver of any commodity because of how interconnected currencies, industry, politics, bonds, equities, ETFs, Futures, etc… is. There are too many moving parts to simply things down to just 1 sole driver like that.

        Anyone that say, “All you need to know is XXXX for gold price movement” is using a “one-size fits all” filter to view the markets and they will be continually wrong-footed and confused when gold moves in a completely different way than they were expecting off some fundamental piece of news. That is why for longer term trends, price action, and using technical analysis smooths out all the noise of all the various news and data points tugging at investors minds.

        People say that Uranium needs is a Japanese restart, in the same way as they boil all Gold investing down to, well all we need is the 10 year note to do blank…… they are looking for an easy explanation and a simple solution. That’s just not how the markets work.

        I was heavily invested in the Uranium space in 2010 & 2011 at it was already showing weakness and pulling back in 2011 like many of the markets, and Uranium would have likely continued to pull back without the Fukushima even, alothough it would NOT have been nearly so extreme or prolonged.

        The major pullback in all metals, oil, soft commodities, and the whole resources sector really accelerated in mid 2011 and bottomed in 2016. This just happened to coincide with the Fukushima event, which absolutely was a MAJOR catalyst in the space, without a doubt; but now it is the sole blame for everything in the GLOBAL sector, and everyone likes to simplify their analysis down to….”Well, once Japan restarts their reactors…….”

        What would happen if Japan turned on all it’s reactors tomorrow? (obviously, it would definitely help sentiment, but it is not the only driver by a long shot). The real driver of spot pricing will be when the longer term price targets get raised, and thus affect shorter term spot buying in the markets. Spot purchases are actually a very small part of the overall market anyway (like 15-20% of purchases are at spot). The real value driver of 80% of transactions is the longer term off-take contracts that the utility companies set up with the Uranium miners or enriching plants. THAT is what needs to change to move the dial in the Uranium space.

        So yes, Japan starting to turn on reactors (they’ve turned back on 5-6 so far) are going to help, but they still have around 30 off-line. Some of those are likely not coming back on-line, but people get Japanese tunnel-vision, and forget that China is still building out 60 more reactors (and dwarfs anythings Japan uses). In addition many other countries like India, UAE, Turkey, Russia, and the USA are still building more reactors and have more planned over the next 5 years. There are many more new reactors going up to absorb any demand that Japan used to fill, so the Japan rationale is limited and lazy research.

        The other 2 big head-winds for the Uranium markets over the last few years have been:

        1) the US Dept of Energy dumping huge (and technically illegal) quantities of Uranium & some Plutonium into the spot markets way above what is allowed to be sold under long standing agreements. There are strict guidelines from the DOE of exactly how much supply from dismantled war heads and private nuclear plants or subs can be dismantled and sold back into the spot markets, but the Obama administration completely ignored those and just dumped a ton into the spot markets for years anyway. The Obama team didn’t think at all about the implication of selling this to Utility companies and how that would impact Uranium miners globally (since the US is THE LARGEST Uranium consumer on the planet). It also allowed the Utility companies to forego starting new longer-term off-take agreements, and crushed prices further.

        2) Because of the continued low price environment, it allowed another monster to grow much more than in an upward trending priced Uranium market…….. the Underfeeding market from Russian and ex-russia countries. When prices are high, the refiners and processor work like crazy to get the Uranium out of the centrifuges and keep producing more Nuclear fuel. However, with prices low and miners not sending in massive amounts to process, then they keep “wringing the sponge” so to speak or “squeezing the orange” to kee throwing off way more Uranium into the markets from their centrifuges. This takes supply that would not normally be released, but allows the processors to stay in business and make a profit while the prices are low, because miners can’t compete with them.

        ** Bottom line, we need longer term off-take agreements to rise to $50-$60 for the hard rock miners to be viable, and about $30-$40 for the Insitu miners to be viable.

        > Many companies like Energy Fuels, Cameco, Ur-Energy, and Peninsula Energy do have these longer term off-take agreements in the mid $40s – mid $50s, and that is the only way they’ve been able to keep production going. Those contracts expire over the next 2-3 years, and at point nobody will be able to continue producing.

        Cameco lost their largest one due to the TEPCO issue with Japan, so that is definitely Fukushima related, but the Energy Fuel and Ur-Energy contracts are mostly with US Utility companies and not tethered to Japan.

        The other real change in the energy sector is the way the zero-emission Renewable sources like Solar & Wind and some Hydro are subsidized like crazy by the government to keep their costs so low. If they took away those subsidies, many renewable sources would not be able to compete with Coal, Oil, Nat Gas, and Nuclear. There are indirect energy subsidies to Oil/Gas cronyism though their back door tax loopholes, tax credits, (not to mention the huge discount Oil being priced in US Dollars = the PetroDollar) provides as buffer to Oil/Gas and the Automotive sectors. Nuclear doesn’t get those same subsidies or tax breaks and thus it is having a harder time competing. However, if you strip away all that government interference in the free market system, then the obvious zero-carbon energy source that can provide 24/7 base load power even if it isn’t sunny or windy, and as the article above mentions, even in the face of hurricane, is NUCLEAR Power.

        Until all these dynamics are taken into account, then the real value nuclear energy can provide globally is being held back, and it is a far more complex and inter-mingled challenge than just restarting the Japanese reactors.

          It was quite generous for you to reply at length and share this information regarding uranium, much of which I was not fully aware of.

          I am hopeful that in time (should I have enough remaining), with information such as you have shared, I may become a better speculator (if not investor) and I am very appreciative of your views (along with those in another area of particular interest, i.e., silver miners).

            Uranium Prices: Japan Makes Further Progress With Nuclear Restarts
            By Leia Toovey -August 28, 2017

            “The outlook for uranium prices is getting even better, with Japan’s nuclear regulator last Friday approving the construction plans for three nuclear reactors, Ohi units 3 and 4 and Genkai unit 3.”

            “Now, two of the three applications required for the restart process has been completed. After the third step is done, the reactors will be allowed to restart.”

      Excelcior,

      I have to wonder just how long it will take for common sense to return to America. I AM NOT SURPRISED THAT IT STARTED IN TEXAS.

      • On September 3, 2017 at 12:06 pm,
        Excelsior says:

        Good question Big Al. I’m not surprised it started in TX either.

        I think the point was that most radical environmentalists sell “Fear” as their commodity and wanted to shut down the 2 nuclear power plants near TX, and are miffed that the real risk was with Oil/Gas, Chemical plants, and most importantly the fragile nature of Wind Farms and Solar Installations from a storm like this.

        The only ones standing were the Nuclear Plants, and this paints a stark counter balance to their narrative of Fukushima weakness in the storm. Nuclear plants are all insulated from large storms and even tornadoes, and people forget that during the Earthquake in Japan the reactors were all fine, and it was the stupid human design in Fukushima by Tepco of having their backup generators in the basement (below sea level) when the Tsunami came in that created the issue, along with them keeping their spent fuel rods in the attic so to speak. Had they used common sense and had the generators above sea level and had they removed and stored the fuel rods in a different way, then they would never had been in that situation. Regardless, I doubt any Nuclear plant anywhere in the global fleet will ever make those mistakes again.

        The point is that Nuclear Power kills less people and is actually one of the safest forms of Base Load power for humanity, but it has a terrible PR problem, where the press encourages lunatic environmental groups and extremist to pump out fake news and fear about nuclear power every day, until the mindless masses start to believe it as truth.

        I thought it was worthwhile to highlight a positive for Nuclear Power in TX during their Hurricane as the norm, and not the exception like Fukushima was.

        I pray for sanity and common sense to return, but have low expectations, since it has rarely existed throughout human history. Still my glass is half full, not empty that we’ll find innovative solutions for the human family.

    For those investors that have missed the EPIC run in (GTT) GT Gold recently, this article should get them up to speed.

    I’m surprised at how the interest in GTT has dominated other sites for the last month or so, along with (GGI) Garibaldi, but there hasn’t been much discussion around these stocks here, other than a few passing comments a few of us have made.

    Regardless this kind of very positive response to exploration companies hitting on the drilling results is PRECISELY the kind of action this sector needs to bring in new investors and get the discovery cycle kick-started. It’s good for the whole sector.

      The Nickel Mountain “Magma Highway”
      September 1, 2017 – BullMarketRun

      “The first Nickel-Copper-rich deposit in the heart of the Eskay Camp is one big step closer this morning with Garibaldi Resources (GGI, TSX-V) reporting that it has intersected two long intervals of disseminated Nickel-Copper sulphide mineralization totaling 176 m in the company’s first drill hole at Nickel Mountain. Heavy disseminated and net-textured sulphides were also intersected, and a borehole downhole survey is expected to guide the next drill holes toward the interpreted massive sulphide body.”

      “GGI is also immediately expanding the Nickel Mountain program which almost certainly means a 2nd drill rig is on the way.”

      > Additional highlights of the first drill hole:

      “EL-17-01 entered mineralized gabbro beginning at a depth of 51 m with disseminated sulphides continuing to 169.5 m. A second section of disseminated sulphides started at a depth of 274.5 meters and continued to 332 m. Meter-scale intervals of up to 30% sulphides at the base of the intercept occur as heavy disseminations, net-textures and gash veins;”

      “EL-17–01 remained in the E&L Intrusive Complex (ELIC) from the collar to the end of the hole at a depth of 441 m;”

      “Core is being processed and assays will be reported as soon as possible (true widths of intercepts in first hole are unknown at this time).”

      “Some impressive core photos have just been released by GGI such as the one below (pyrrhotite-pentlandite-chalcopyrite in heavy disseminated sulphides). Keep in mind that given the world class tenor of the sulphide at the E&L, as reported by GGI earlier, grades in disseminated sulphides can be very high.”

        Alacran could be tip of the iceberg, Cordoba says (CDB) (CDBMF)
        TRISH SAYWELL AUGUST 30, 2017

        “Since January, when Cordoba Minerals (TSXV: CDB; US-OTC: CDBMF) completed the first resource estimate on its Alacran deposit in Colombia based on 22 drill holes, the company has drilled another 45 holes, and in mid-August, unveiled a new 3,000-metre drill program to test high-priority targets to the south, northeast and down dip.”

        “We’re pretty confident that Alacran is going to get bigger than the 54 million tonnes previously reported,” says president and CEO Mario Stifano, referring to the inferred resource of 53.5 million tonnes grading 0.70% copper and 0.37 gram gold per tonne, or 0.95% copper equivalent.”

        “We’re well on our way to having a sizeable resource here,” he adds. “We think we will be able to demonstrate that we have a really economic ore body at Alacran. It’s exciting because the mineralization starts right from surface — so you have no pre-strip — and you’ve got great grades.”

        Even at current levels, I ma seriously thinking about starting a position in GGI – I never thought I would own a nickel stock, but the potential here is truly amazing for this Canada-based resource. There are also opportunities in cobalt and graphite in Canada.

          The companies that find economic resources of Cobalt outside of the DRC or Platinum/Palladium outside of South Africa or Zimbabwe will really get on many investors and manufacturers radar screens.

      Thanks for posting GTT information. I own shares (zero cost average) and follow closely on CEO.CA.

      I agree, the success of GTT (not in share price, so much, but in actual find) and GGI should eventually ignite interest in the GT area and throughout Canada. This is one of the reasons I have recently re-balanced my PF to have predominantly Canada-located explorers and developers (Gold, Silver).

      With respect to the lack of posts on KER? Personally, I just read CEO.CA comments within the companies I am following.

        Brian – Good thoughts on GTT and GGI. Yes, you may be onto something with the Canadian focus on the Gold/Silver explorers and developers. Canadian companies do get a premium for sure. I just love some of the unloved areas like Mexico, Australia, Latin America, West Africa, and even will consider really risky jurisdictions like Serbia, Turkey, China or Russia if the asset and team seem like they can pull it off. (I’ll admit to taking some risks that didn’t pan out though…).

      I mean, really, entire silver mines have been built, economically, based on 100 g/t silver (3 Oz/t)

Those are good supporting silver grades for sure, but for the gold grades anything above 1-2 is good for open pit, and anything above 3-4+ may be good for underground, so 6, 10, 18, or 51 g/t are solid hits. Those are the headline hits, but now they need to show what the average grades will be across the property, but those are very encouraging Gold grades and nice Silver kickers as a co-product.

          Alexco Confirms, Expands High Grade Silver Zone at Bermingham Deposit; Drilling Continues
          September 13, 2016

          Drilling has confirmed and expanded the Bermingham high grade zone, including a recent intercept of 7.5 meters true width of 2,715 grams per tonne (“g/t”) (87.3 ounces per tonne (“oz/t”)) silver; (including 2.4 meters of 6,391 g/t (205.5 oz/t) silver) from hole K-16-0608, drilled approximately 100m down plunge from the deepest intercept reported in 2015.”

          “Overall, all other composite intercepts in the high grade Bear Zone now range between 504 g/t to 7,462 g/t silver over composited true thicknesses ranging from 1.3m to 6.4m.”

            Alexco’s results haven’t gotten near enough attention by the broader investor base in precious metals yet:

            2.4 meters of 6,391 g/t Silver is a narrow intercept but insanely high grade

            7.5 meters true width of 2,715 g/t Silver is a much wider intercept and a great hit

            Just the range they have in this particular zone is quite impressive:

            “between 504 g/t to 7,462 g/t silver over composited true thicknesses ranging from 1.3m to 6.4m.”

            “The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, and the Premier of Yukon, Sandy Silver, today announced over $360 million in combined federal and territorial funding to improve road access in two mineral-rich areas: the Dawson Range in central Yukon and the Nahanni Range Road in southeastern Yukon.”

            “In total, the Yukon Resource Gateway Project will help upgrade over 650 kilometres of road and build or replace numerous bridges, culverts, and stream crossings. Better road access will help Canadians and local businesses take greater advantage of the economic potential of Yukon’s natural resources, and set the stage for the long-term development of the territory’s growing mining sector.”

        Haha! It happens Ann. Yes the Golden Triangle plays are heading up.

        CXO has been another one with lots of interest building, and while it didn’t deliver on expectations as much last year, investors are very enthusiastic for this years campaign.

        I don’t follow ABN as closely, but see it being discussed quite a bit.

        $TUD $TUO $AMK are a #PowerTrio where they are co-mingled in a number of JV exploration projects all over the Golden Triangle, (near Pretium and Seabridge properties)

        (DV) Dolly Varden has been putting out killer drill results lately in the Golden Triangle and that has given their shares a boost. As a shareholder…. I’m all smiles; and they may have a few assays still pending and just financed so they can do more drilling.

        (BBB) Brixton is going to be doing some Gold/Silver drilling in the #GoldenTriangle at their Thorn property in the near future. Brixton also knocked it out of the park with more soil samples at their Silver/Cobalt camp in Langis (in Ontario), and they just picked up 2 new properties they’ll be exploring.

        The contributor over at ceo.ca, Vince aka “Stateside”, is very up to speed on Jr mining news and produces the Stateside Report every week or 2, had this to say yesterday:

        @stateside – “Next Golden Triangle results should be the hated $DEC – $MTB jv at Red Cliff. Trading says first set of drill results on Tuesday. They are overdue.”

        Those are Decade Resources and Mountain Boy that have super fans and super trolls on both sides of the fence. Once the drill results come back they will be the “Truth Machine” as far as if they are onto something.

        As for ESK – Stateside had a nice section on them in his last podcast that would be worth listening to. He covers ABN and CXO as well:

            Really, if I have a company I want to check on, I just use ceo.ca because you can search for any ticker and see what investors are discussing, get all the news on the company, related sector info, and often people will contrast one company against another.

            There are also a number of geologists, engineers, company officers, etc… that provide info as specialists that you just can’t get anywhere else.

    Al, my apologies about being long winded.

    For good or bad, Trump is the face or is becoming the face of the American domestic, economic and foreign policy. Wherever you argue about this, he is coming to be seen as bearing responsibility for it. I personally disagree with good portions of the previous two sentences. He’s just one person with a lot of feelings about things which weren’t backed up by a lot of intellectual analysis. The situation (economically, foreign policy wise, etc. and may I add spiritually in a way) has been metastasizing for decades. A TV show that is a metaphor for where America is is “Breaking Bad”. Small bad decisions made for whatever reason compounded by more and worse bad decisions over time without a reset will result in disaster. The result is a disaster not only for America but also for innocent (and some not so innocent) bystanders.

    There is a Sh*tstorm coming. It was coming one way or another. Trump isn’t the cause. Trump (and enough Americans to elect him) could feel it coming and desperately wanted to change it’s course. Hillary likely saw it coming as well but wanted to make sure the blame would fall on Russia, China or whoever. Whatever happened to the phrase “The buck stops here and it’s not for directions”?

    Somebody screwed up and Hillary lost. Some people say this was a plan but I figure arrogance by the deep state is more likely. But the deep state is adept at being opportunistic. They were handed a lemon and they decided to make lemonade. It was and is up to Trump to avoid this. His feeling and beliefs without tough stubbornness to back them up won’t cut it. Trump’s (and the people who voted for him for whatever reason) wish to effect the needed changes is being met by the plan to “just blame everything on somebody else” from Hillary’s/deep state’s play book. And now even Trump is seeing the the escape hatch of that play book.

    A little here, a little there is not going to be enough in my opinion. Trump’s ideas (some uninformed, some half baked, some good) aren’t likely to be fully implemented. But when the storm hits, he and his policies, whether implemented or not, will receive blame. Enough Americans will say enough of this sh*t and veer to the other side. Bernie or his inheritor will get his chance to screw things up as well. And the deep state will continue to mess things up on top of everything. The rich will get richer, the poor will get poorer, the elites/congress/senate will continue to refuse to face the problems.

    The rest of the world looks on in disbelief at America’s mind blowing midlife crisis. They hope some idiot in America doesn’t cause World War III.

    The evolution of the the “Trump” effect can be summed up in the following.
    Seven Phases of a Project

    1. Wild Enthusiasm
    2. Illusion of Progress
    3. Panic
    4. Disillusionment
    5. Search for the guilty
    6. Punishment of the innocent
    7. Praise and reward for the non-participants

      Dem Rep Admits Trump Derangement Syndrome — I Would Oppose Mother’s Day If Trump Endorsed It

      This week in an interview with the Los Angeles Times editorial board, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA), who filed articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, said “Trump derangement syndrome” was so strong with his Californian constituents, he would be forced to oppose Mother’s Day if Trump endorsed it.

      Sherman said, “Then we have a Trump derangement syndrome where — thank God he didn’t put out a message on Mother’s Day because there would have been pressure on me to come out against Mother’s Day.”

      He added, “If Trump takes a position, then you must take an equally extreme and opposite position. He’s for Mother’s Day — you must be against Mother’s Day. He’s for a wall — you have to be for unlimited immigration from all places.”

    An Al Qaeda affiliate has seized control of uranium mines in Africa with the intent of supplying the material to Iran, according to a diplomatic letter from a top Somali official appealing to the U.S. for “immediate military assistance.”

    The letter, reviewed by Fox News, was addressed to U.S. Ambassador to Somalia Stephen Schwartz. Somalia’s Ambassador to the U.S. Ahmed Awad confirmed to Fox News on Thursday that the letter “has indeed been issued” by Minister of Foreign Affairs Yusuf Garaad Omar, whose signature is on the document.

    The Aug. 11-dated letter delivered an urgent warning to the U.S. that the al-Shabaab terror network has linked up with the regional ISIS faction and is “capturing territory” in the central part of the country.

    ‘Every day that passes without intervention provides America’s enemies with additional material for nuclear weapons.’

    – Letter from Somalia’s foreign minister to U.S. ambassador:

    “This issue can be summed up in a single word: uranium,” the letter said. “Al-Shabaab forces have captured critical surface exposed uranium deposits in the Galmudug region and are strip mining triuranium octoxide for transport to Iran.”

    A Labor Of Love With The Golden Jackass

    Well, here we are…the unofficial end of summer. It’s Labor Day weekend here in the U.S. which means we are in the midst of a 3-day weekend. And you know what that means here at TFMR! Fresh Jackass for everyone!

    When Jim and I recorded this back on Thursday, time was somewhat short. So, with this constraint in mind, I asked Jim to focus on two, primary topics:

    Since we last spoke in July, what changes have occurred in the world of US dollar hegemony? Is the China-Russia-Saudi connection accelerating the demise of the petrodollar system?
    The current US debt and political situation and how this will increasingly impact global markets as traders return en masse on Tuesday.
    Just two topics yet over an hour of audio? Yep, that’s how it works and you’re just going to have to listen to the entire thing if you want to unearth all the nuggets of knowledge that The Jackass has left behind for you.

    Enjoy and have a great weekend!

    Silver is much more appealing to me than gold but I expect pullbacks to be exaggerated until the 200 week MA points up — and it hasn’t even gone flat yet.

    When it finally took back that MA in 2003, it moved 15% above it, then plunged 12% to backtest it before rising 75% over the following six months. Whatever happens this time, I expect the action to scare out a lot of wannabe bulls.

      Hope so M.
      I missed the July low, thinking it would go lower…. Into the 14s.
      12% lower from here would get back to my initial bullion entry point of $15.66 in late 2014. Not buying in the 17s that’s for sure.
      Good to know you think we still have a plunge or two to come….
      Thanks for all the great charts 🙂

      Hi Tad, I have to point out that what i was trying to say is that, like in 2003, silver might go 15% above the 200 week MA ($20) and then fall about 12% (to roughly $17.60).

      I also have to say that, if I wanted more long term physical silver, I would be a buyer of at least a partial position right here on any weakness had I missed the recent lows. No, it is not ideal since it is overbought on the daily chart, but the weekly chart could very well be in charge right now and it looks great. If the correction that began a year ago really is over, then the odds are greater that the weekly chart is the one to use.

      I said the same thing when it mattered in early 2016 while many kept expecting a pullback — or worse. Those who focused on the daily with their bear market glasses still on missed one of the greatest moves the sector has ever seen.

      Aside from competent traders, most would be much better served by attaching themselves to the intermediate term trends and using the weekly charts. In a bull market, daily chart sell signals often do not deliver the expected action. This is often truer of individual stocks.

          I clearly, personally, do not fully understand the price differential (or lack of it) between PT and Pd.
          The Tammann temperature for Pt is 750, whereas for Pd it is 640, if I remember correctly. Thus Pt should have wider application and use than Pd. This combined with their relative abundance in nature implies price for Pt >> price for Pd.

            I heard commentary about how once Palladium reached a certain level,the price would level off and Platinum would close the Pt,Pd spread.So far this has been proved incorrect,thus the argument that the major thing driving prices was the use in catalytic converters for the auto industry.With the advent of electric cars and trucks one would think that you would start seeing a decline in demand.
            That being said, this is why I came to the conclusion that there is more going on than we can see.

        Many people over the years have wanted physics to be fully deterministic rather than based on probabilistic mathematics. Hardy is not new in his approach. The biggest problem lies not in overall quantum theory, strong, weak nuclear or electromagnetic forces, but at the gravitational force end of interactions. And as regards probability instead of determinism is that not just nature’s fun way of playing dice with the universe?

      War is the means by which the central bankers advance their agenda. Rakovsky says Trotsky was behind the murder of Arch Duke Ferdinand (which sparked WWI.) He recalls the phrase used by the mother of the five Rothschild brothers: “‘If my sons want it, then there will be no war.’ This means that they were the arbiters, the masters of peace and war, but not emperors. Are you capable of visualizing the fact of such a cosmic importance? Is not war already a revolutionary function? War? The Commune. Since that time every war was a giant step towards Communism.”

      rathenau.jpgAfter the murder of [Illuminati member Weimar Foreign Minister] Walter Rathenau in 1922, the Illuminati give political or financial positions only to intermediaries, Rakowsky says. “Obviously to persons who are trustworthy and loyal, which can be guaranteed a thousand ways: thus one can assert that those bankers and politicians [in the public eye] – are only men of straw . . . even though they occupy very high places and are made to appear to be the authors of the plans which are carried out.” Think Barack Obama.

      In 1938, Rakovsky outlined three reasons for the upcoming Second World War. The first is that Hitler began to print his own money. “This is very serious. Much more than all the external and cruel factors in National-Socialism.”

      Secondly, the “fully developed nationalism of Western Europe is an obstacle to Marxism…the need for the destruction of nationalism is alone worth a war in Europe.”

      Finally, Communism cannot triumph unless it suppresses the “still living Christianity.” He refers to the “permanent revolution” as dating from the birth of Christ, and the reformation as “its first partial victory” because it split Christianity. This suggests that the “conspiracy” also contains a racial or religious factor.

      “In reality, Christianity is our only real enemy since all the political and economic phenomena of the Bourgeois States. Christianity controlling the individual is capable of annulling the revolutionary projection of the neutral Soviet or Atheist State.”

      Now the Central Bankers are promoting World War Three as in “The Clash of Civilizations.” Substitute Islam for Christianity above, and pit “Christians” against them.

          I often wonder how people come up with things.

          Nowhere in the article I posted does it say Hitler started the war by himself.

          When you understand what the article is talking about, you see in THEIR VIEW christianity stands in the way of implementing communism.(maybe a positive to christianity I have personally overlooked)

          OBVIOUSLY this article does not have all info concerning the 2nd war,

          “War is the means by which the central bankers advance their agenda.”

          The first line, a bit of an idea as to what the article is about.
          War is a tool of central banks…..duh.

          The article is not really about who started what.

          But if you were interested, there is a pretty neat speech by Hitler where he states clearly “IF YOU BRING WAR UPON US…….. ” and guess what the threat was.
          Guess who he was talking to.

          Hitler invaded Poland as Germans in Poland were getting murdered by Poles.
          That was the end of town Germany lost to Poland in the first war.

          After he moved to Poland he asked churchill no less than 12 times to negotiate a peace, churchill declined every time. (call it a treaty obligation if you want) 60 million dead for a treaty, great treaty.
          Anyway, away it went from there.

          Hitler wanted to invade Russia as he saw communism as the enemy, he also knew communism is implemented by Zionists.
          But thats another story I guess.

          If John you are merely stating in your opinion christianity IS the enemy, I take it all back. lol I would just have to disagree.

          On the other hand, Hitler was a meth head so how can ya figure his reasoning for anything?

            Many don’t realize that Lewis Carroll’s book “Through the Looking Glass” (the sequel to
            Alice in Wonderland) is actually a giant chess game….. and such is life…..

            ____________________________________________________

            “Whereas the first book has the deck of cards as a theme, this book is based on a game of chess, played on a giant chessboard with fields for squares. Most main characters in the story are represented by a chess piece or animals, with Alice herself being a pawn.”

            “The looking-glass world is divided into sections by brooks or streams, with the crossing of each brook usually signifying a notable change in the scene and action of the story: the brooks represent the divisions between squares on the chessboard, and Alice’s crossing of them signifies advancing of her piece one square. ”

            “Furthermore, since the brook-crossings do not always correspond to the beginning and ends of chapters, most editions of the book visually represent the crossings by breaking the text with several lines of asterisks ( * * * ). The sequence of moves (white and red) is not always followed. The most extensive treatment of the chess motif in Carroll’s novel is provided in Glen Downey’s The Truth About Pawn Promotion: The Development of the Chess Motif in Victorian Fiction.”

          Good opening thoughts from Jordan in that recent editorial:

          “Gold cleared $1300 early in the week and padded its gains on Friday even amid a bullish weekly reversal in the US Dollar. Gold’s breakout was validated by a strong monthly close on Thursday and then a strong weekly close Friday. As predicted, the miners perked up with the breakout in Gold. GDX and GDXJ gained nearly 6% and 7% respectively for the week. Look for the miners to continue to trend higher as Gold attempts to retest its 2016 highs around $1375/oz.”

    Truth Revealed Will Mean Crashed System – Bill Holter

    Financial writer Bill Holter says 2017 is the year of the “truth bombs,” and along with the truth comes pain. Holter explains, “Unfortunately, the truth coming out will mean a crashed system. It will mean a nonfunctioning system. When truth finally comes out, and it will one way or the other, credit will cease because credit is based on trust. Credit is handed out on trust, and when the truth comes out, credit will cease. Then the system is going to have to reboot.”

    Donald Trump is not going to be so fortunate as Barack Obama, George Bush, and Bill Clinton. His moment of decision with North Korea has arrived, he must make the right decision as he will not get a chance to be viewed by history, his moment of triumph will either come immediately or he will fail. Not a great scenario for a President who is just starting out and cannot expect to fall back on sober and friendly counsel. DT

    Secular Bulls

    By Warren Bevan – Monday, 4 September 2017

    “This week was the first week of the rest of you life, as well as the mark of the resumption of the secular bull market in gold.

    Things are really shaping up nicely in the precious metals arena.

    Gold broke a major trend-line and closed the month with a breakout on expanding volume on the all important monthly chart.

    Nothing is ever for sure in trading but this is very solid action.

    As for stocks, there is no rest at all and I love it.

    The strength is real.

    Let’s see if we can see the strength continue into fall.

    Often, September isn’t so hot in stocks but it’s never set in stone.”

    Gold broke-out and gained 2.50% this past week.

    Just lovely action from gold, breaking out, coming back to test $1,300, and holding, before taking off higher again.

    We do appear to be in the clear as long as $1,300 holds.

    Silver led in terms of gains and notched a sweet 4.5% win last week.

    It’s nice to see silver close above $17.75 Friday to close the week out.

    Things look good so let’s see how it plays out.

    Platinum was no slouch and booked a 3.05% gain for the week.

    Looking good Billy Ray!

    As long as gold and silver remain strong there is no reason platinum won’t.

    The winner winner, chicken dinner was palladium taking home a 5.47% win.

    Solid action into new highs on great volume.

    I’d look for a test near $940 to take a trade if you’re interested.

    Enjoy your long deserved long weekend.”

    Warren

      Matthew says:

      I am obviously nit-picking, but t’s not quite right to say that the secular bull market has resumed since all uptrends of any scale come with pullbacks/corrections. The down moves are part of any bull not a time-out.

      • On September 4, 2017 at 7:27 pm,
        Matthew says:

        To be clear, the secular bull never ended.

        • On September 4, 2017 at 7:35 pm,
          Excelsior says:

          Yes, we are in agreement there Matthew, and for clarity that was Warren’s piece.

          I look at the Secular bull having started around 2000-2001 and will go about 20-25 years. Most Secular bulls have 3-4 bullish legs and 2-3 bearish legs. 2000-2007 was the first bull leg, with a pullback in 2008- early 2009. Late 2009 – 2011 was the next upleg to record highs, followed by the ugly bear market from mid 2011 – Dec 2015. New “Cyclical Bull” started in 2016 and will likely run to 2019-2020.

          • On September 4, 2017 at 7:41 pm,
            Matthew says:

            Yes, I knew those weren’t your words.

          • On September 4, 2017 at 7:43 pm,
            Matthew says:

            We would not say that a cyclical bull has resumed after a correction either.

          • On September 4, 2017 at 8:47 pm,
            Excelsior says:

            True. The Cyclical Bull kicked off in 2016 and is still in play so it never ended. We simply had a 1 year digestion of the initial impulse leg up in from the 1st half of 2016 from last August to this August.

            We are simply continuing on, and while Gold/Silver are resuming the uptrend, you are correct they are not resuming the cyclical or secular bull, as both never ended.

    Ok so just a hunch and nothing more but I think the metals roll over a tad here. Gold back to 1280-1290 and silver around 16.80. Dont know why, just think its an option as they take a breather from the recent gains. That is unless of course something crazy happens in the world in the coming days.

    Maybe it will take Bitcoin to open peoples eyes as to China not being there when it comes to Kim Jong. Everybody loves the U.S when they are collecting our greenbacks,when it comes times to support U S sanctions they are conspicuously absent.
    Maybe it will take Bitcoin to open peoples eyes to the U.S Senate leader’s wife Elaine Chows family shipping empire being busted with a load of cocaine.

    It’s one thing to say we should attack another country.It’s another thing to have your relative come home in a casket, or die in a V A Hospital.

    Actually not. When you attack other counties, you guarantee you will be sending your own children home in cheap aluminum boxes to arrive in the middle of the night so no one notices. One is part of the other. If you get one, you get the other.
    I point that out in The Art of Peace.

      Thanks for the reply John K,

      I am quite aware of the U.S. role in the nuclear program of North Korea. I am also quite aware of the U.S. role in other parts of the world and most of the time I do not agree with our policy.

      I am also quite aware of the impact of The Military Industrial Complex which I happen to abhor.

      I am about six minutes aware from recording an editorial on this very subject which will be posted by 12:25 pst. You might be surprised at what I have to say.

      Now my question, “do you think that the President is being too dramatic in this situation. Listen to what I think.

    Big Al, If Hillary had become The President she would have done nothing until The North Koreans had first attacked The US. You know that time is on their side and they would prefer to have this delayed by a few more years until they are good and ready and we are sitting ducks.

    Say what you want about Trump but he is much more aware of the situation then the Clinton grifters, and The North Koreans fully realize this fact. DT

    Allan Barry Reports from Mexico – Episode Tres

    In this show Allan covers why gold is ready to move over $1300 and go higher this year. One key reason is the USD weakness that will continue to put wind in the sails of gold, silver, copper and other commodities.

    Also in this show, Allan made GT Gold (GTT.V) and Fjordland Exploration (FEX.V) new picks and discussed why.

    Other companies discussed include; Garibaldi Resources (GGI.V), Dolly Varden Silver (DV.V), Premier Gold Mines (PG.T) and Novo Resources (NVO.V).

    Silver Market Update

    Clive Maund – Sunday, September 03, 2017 #TechnicalAnalysis #Charts

    “The long base pattern in silver continues with positive price / volume action of recent weeks suggesting that it is approaching completion. On its 10-year chart we can see the giant Head-and-Shoulders bottom pattern that has formed in silver, which parallels the one in gold, but is downsloping because silver tends to underperform gold at the end of bearmarkets and early in bullmarkets. The volume buildup of recent months is bullish, especially as it has driven volume indicators sharply higher, with the On-balance Volume line having rather incredibly made new highs this year, which is viewed as a very bullish omen.”
