KER Weekend Show Hour 2

In the second hour I focus more on the gold sector as well as get a couple important company updates. Pay close attention to the final segment where Rick Bensingor shares a comprehensive update on US markets and even mentions his thoughts on gold.

If anyone is in Vancouver and attending the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC) please be sure to swing by my booth or send me an email (Fleck@kereport.com). I’m more than happy to meet up at the show of in the afternoon to sneak away to watch the football games. If you are unable to make it email me with any companies you would like me to sit down with.

  • Segment 1 – David Erfle, Founder of The Junior Miner Junky shares his speech at VRIC about how to build a successful portfolio of metals companies.
  • Segment 2 – We get an update on Great Bear Resources from the CEO and President Chris Taylor. Great Bear had two news released out this week that included a very nice drill result that sent the stock higher.
  • Segment 3 – Craig Parry, CEO and President of IsoEnergy joins me for a uranium update. IsoEnergy just raised $5.5 million in an oversubscribed bought deal and is about to start drilling.
  • Segment 4 – Rick Bensignor, Founder of Bensignor Investment Strategies wraps up the show with some valuable insights on the US markets. We also discuss how the year could play out for the markets considering where the VIX currently is, the USD, and safe haven investments.

    David Skarica – Explosion In Gold Price On The Horizon

    by @PalisadeRadio on January 18, 2019

    “We talked about the gold price, why junior exploration plays with ounces in the ground are worth taking a look at, and why the previous rally in gold and gold stocks back in 2016 might repeat. ”

    Palladium Is Worth More Than Gold For The First Time In Over A Decade

    Published: Jan 17, 2019

    “The biggest driver for palladium’s recent success comes from the ongoing supply deficit, creating a very tight physical market,” said Maxwell Gold, director of investment strategy at Aberdeen Standard Investments.

    “Palladium and gold are both rare and therefore valuable,” said R. Michael Jones, chief executive of Platinum Group Metals PLG, -1.64% But “palladium is more valuable than gold as it is rarer,” he noted.

    “There are dozens of gold mines around the world,” Jones said, while “there are only two primary palladium mines in the world and two new mines in South Africa in development.”

    “Platinum’s much cheaper price has raised the possibility that auto makers will start looking to replace palladium in catalytic converters with platinum. The opposite happened when palladium was the cheaper metal. Palladium prices were consistently lower than platinum’s from about 2001 to 2017.”

      Fascinating how things go sometimes……..last place I’d consider investing in a world going all electric for cars would be palladium but I guess the transition time has led to a supply crunch……missed it completely……must be all the pot …..dulled my spidey sense.🤔

        We mentioned a few times after the VW emissions scandal that it was likely diesel cars would be de-emphasized hurting Platinum in favor of gas vehicles which utilize Palladium.

        Also when Pd was at a discount to Pt in other industrial applications then it became a substitution for economic reasons. Now we may see the reverse where Pt gets substituted for Pd now that pricing valuations are reversed.

      There are a lot of signs of change on the horizon. Artificial Intelligence is being felt everywhere. I see many car ads on the television these days, the consumer is broke but they are also waiting for the manufactures to come out with new electric models. Nobody is sure exactly what commodities will be needed for electrical storage batteries. There is a lot of uncertainly on all levels of our lives. The psychological pendulum is swinging on a down swing and it is saying hard times are ahead. The consumer has more information at his fingertips and can see this. Once the pendulum reaches the maximum downswing it will take a long while for it’s return to the mean. That is mass psychology and it is this phenomenon that drives markets and people. DT

          Good AI discussion DT and Wolfster.

          There are a great deal of AI applications being used in “Big Data” crunching and “The Internet of Things” and a pool of start up companies jumping in the water, but I struggle with how to properly value them.

            Are the fundamentals still intact for Lithium?

            The Palisade Blog – 21st January 2019

            “2018 proved to be a mixed year for the lithium market. If we look back over the previous couple of years it was quite clear to see that a spark had been lit in this space – with many new juniors able to raise money and drill for possible discoveries on the back of a new demand story – the rise of battery materials for electric vehicles.”

            “Being early in the demand story for a new technology like electric vehicles doesn’t always pay off – but when it does, and when the late comers start to see what you see – the run up in the underlying commodity and the related juniors can create huge gains – and quickly.”

            “And this is exactly what happened to Lithium.”

            “However, as talks of a bubble grew and worries about too much new supply coming online – and all at once – investor sentiment inevitably started to change. As the party began to falter and the enthusiasm began to fade, the price of Lithium reacted accordingly and started to fall.”

            “Everyone watched the price fall and suddenly investor sentiment started to believe that the party for Lithium was over – and over for good.”

            “But today, we believe something else.”

            “We believe that the party has not stopped – but has just taken a pause. And because of the pause, the lithium market is perhaps in a far better situation today – for a sustained future bullish move to occur over the next few years – than it was a few years ago. ”

          “As a result of the completion of the acquisition transaction by the Company (then named Golden Reign Resources Ltd.) of Marlin Gold Mining Ltd.

          “Recent drilling at the Las Conchitas area of Mako Mining’s wholly-owned San Albino-Murra Property, located in Nueva Segovia, Nicaragua has generated positive results…. The Company is planning a further diamond drilling campaign to follow up on these high-grade results. Mako Mining intends to commence drilling again in late February 2019.”

        Could junior MOD Resources be about to fly on takeover speculation?

        3 hours ago | Reuben Adams #SanddireResources potential #Takeover

        “MOD Resources has requested a trading halt pending an announcement “regarding a capital raising” and to respond to the Sandfire Resources speculation.”

        Copper producer Sandfire Resources has confirmed media speculation that it approached junior MOD Resources “exploring a potential combination of the two companies”.

        “Cashed-up mid-tier miner Sandfire had contacted MOD (ASX:MOD) with a takeover offer which was far greater than the explorer’s current $55m market cap, according to the Financial Review.”

        “MOD shares are temporarily paused pending an announcement of their own.”

    Great show as always! Nice interview in Great Bear Resources which I do not own. I do however own shares in Pacton Gold. I picked them up due to my investment in Novo Resources and the Pilbara area play. Pacton has property nearby and on-trend from what I understand from Great Bear Resources. Even though they are not a sponsor on the KE Report, it would be great if you could bring Pacton on to talk both about their land holdings near Great Bear as well as the latest from the Pilbara. Thanks!
