    China Evergrande’s Snowballing Debt Crisis

    Isn’t Denison a low cost North American uranium producer with its Wheeler River project?
    Isn’t the Ortalyk mine, 49% owned by CGN Mining(1164:HK), even better?

      Sep 17, 2021 17:26 AM

      Denison used to be in production in the US in the prior Uranium cycle, but sold all those assets a while ago, offloaded their African Assets into GoviEx, and have focused on exploration and development assets in the Athabasca Basin in Canada the last few years.

      Their Wheeler River and Phoenix projects are development stage, but not currently in production, so they are essentially a developer. (DNN) (DML) will be the first Canadian company in development to get their project into production, years before other companies, but they are going to pursue the ISR insitu mining method which has never been tested in Canada or the Athabasca before.

      Denison still has a partial stake in the McClean Lake Mill in the Athabasca, that processed ore from Cameco, but that mine is on care and maintenance still.

      Denison used to manage and be the custodian for the Uranium Participation Trust, but over the last few months that was acquired by Sprott and turned into their new Sprott Physical Uranium Trust (U-UN.TO), and that is the vehicle mopping up so much of the spot U308 market with their At The Market financings then tasked with buying physical in a 30 day window. This buying has accelerated the recent move up in spot pricing and given the miners another boost.

      I nibbled at a little (UUUU) (URG) (UEC) and (NXE) today now that some of them have corrected down 15% from where I trimmed them, but I’d get more interested if we saw a deeper corrective move.

    BlackRock Fund Manager Says He’s Cut Gold Holdings To ‘Almost Zero.’ Here’s why.

    Market Watch – Sept. 17, 2021

    “Fourteen months ago, we had a fairly significant position in gold. Today, we’ve reduced it to almost zero,” Russ Koesterich, the manager of BlackRock’s Global Allocation Fund MALOX, told Bloomberg in an interview.

    “We primarily think of gold as a hedge against equity risk, and that works when you’ve got an environment with real rates that are flat or declining. If part of our view is that real rates normalize a bit, that particular commodity is unlikely to work as well as it did in the middle of 2020,” said Koesterich.

    Near term, he said there are likely “better hedges against inflation in the equity market and rather than own an asset that doesn’t produce cash flow, we would rather hedge some of the near term upside with stocks that have pricing power.”

    10 year yields…Weak move up at wave E already after achieving a mere .382 retracement…Just not strong…But strong enough to put some dollar strength in….No luck on this front towards gold strength…But the move appears counter-trend and waning …..

    Sep 17, 2021 17:23 AM

    No need to listen to these clowns anymore, the writing is on the wall. Another crash is in the cards and the PMs & miners are flashing this right now.
    BHP and RIO both have been crashing for the past month, along with all the other miners.
    It’s over now, finished. If you haven’t sold out by now then you’ve probably watched all your stocks go from being in the green to now at least at break even or in the red.
    Sell NOW!
    If you don’t, you will regret it. Come November everything will be much lower.

    Sep 17, 2021 17:24 AM

    Where did CGN Mining get 1/2 billion to buy their stake in Ortalyk mine from Kazatomprom? There’s plenty of cash here for Evergrande too.

    The silver miners usually provide at least 2 to 3 times leverage to the price moves of silver yet they gave virtually no leverage during silver 5% drop yesterday and today is even better, much better. SIL and SILJ are both down less than half as much as SLV at the moment.

    Interesting SILJ:SLV pattern:

      Sep 17, 2021 17:43 AM

      Trading cycles are about 28 days for gold, this is day 28 since the previous one… today is much better candle to form a swing low from….3 candle morning star would do the trick….miners are NOT being dumped…no

    Sep 17, 2021 17:34 AM

    SILJ is still up over 3 percent versus SLV this week and its decline since June is long in the tooth…

    I looked at my ‘not as good as good as Matthew’s and Doc’s” charts today and found several of my miners at, near or below the their lower Bollinger Bands. RSI fairly low also. Here are the ones that are the most oversold in random order;

    Emerita, Labrador, Discovery Silver, Summa Silver, Silver Tiger, Blackrock Silver, Great Bear and Big Ridge. Another interesting thing were most of the remainder were around their moving averages and I think it was a 20 day.

    1980 to the year 2000 was up and down up and down up and down. 20 YEARS

    We are now and about the 10th year of this with the mining shares- up down …..

    I suspect this type of action will end at the end of this year. I’ll place the odds of about 90%.

    Reason: debts are soaring to astronomical levels on steroids. The up down action is going to end at the 10-year mark not at the 20-year mark from 1980 to 2000.

    Unless we have a Black swan and that comes earlier rather than later waiting till next year.

    Confidence will be lost soon. I’m not convinced of an $8,000 gold price at the end of 2022 like Michael Oliver forecasted. The gold crowd there will be content with $3000. Although I think 5,000 is possible within a few years and possibly even 8 or 10,000 like Michael Oliver said.

    So, either buy now gold mining shares and take your chances or wait until December to pick up bargains if that scenario comes to fruition.

    With that being said, there’s nothing else to do except keep scratching your head in frustrations. Is that your favorite pastime ?

    By the end of the year most of the pain should be over for the PM stocks. The silver chart still looks awful and a lot of the silver companies have farther to fall—just be patient and you will have deals you can’t imagine.

    So what’s the problem with PMs/miners spitting big cash flows, etc. Possibly if one thinks about the programmers of the machines controlling 90-95% of trading, we would have to assume they’re a different generation. Many in their 30’s or younger. Isn’t it realistic to see they have a totally different mindset than we old timers who have followed and believed in gold for at least 30 or 40 years? Most probably believe in cryptos as one of the new saviors. Gold and silver is so yesterday……..No? All I know is that my stash of physical won’t ever be sold. Last added to it in 2016. Have considered cashing in my trading account and applying it to physical but likely won’t. I remember too many times when things came back, big, like January of 2016. I’m willing to wait for that event again because I know it’s coming. Just don’t know if I’ll be around to enjoy it once more but will gamble that I am………..Just my take.
