Help us to keep growing by joining us on Twitter.com and at JrMiningNews. As gold continues to languish below $1300 we remain optimistic on the upside potential of the resource sector. Do not allow these times to put you to sleep. There are many great opportunities which I see everyday and always wished I had more monies to invest.

Some of these can be called ‘project generators’.  Project generators, own the properties but joint … Continue reading

For Wall Street, Mexico Is Great Again

July 24, 2017 by Kenneth Rapoza ,  CONTRIBUTOR Editors Note from Dudley Pierce Baker founder of http://JuniorMiningNews.com http://CommonStockWarrants.com I have lived in Ajijic, Mexico for over 18 years and have seen many positive changes. Many of my personal investments in the junior mining and oil and gas sectors are operating in Mexico. Some of these companies have long-term warrants trading and offer great opportunities. Two Canadian oil and gas companies are now operating in Mexico with incredible upside and all of my positions are available to my Gold Subscribers to see. In spite of President Trump’s campaign rhetoric to take a  hammer to NAFTA, Mexico quickly recovered from its lows right around Inauguration Day and is now the best market in the Americas. Even better than the U.S. and Canada. (Shutterstock) Mexico has a lot of well-known problems. Drugs. Poverty. Corruption. And on the corporate side, low-levels of production outside of … Continue reading

Fred On Everything | Security Theater: Customary Federal Pointlessness

December 3, 2015 Fred On Everything By Fred Reed A few cheering thoughts on terrorism. This column specializes in cheering thoughts. Terrorism by Moslems in America and Europe cannot be stopped. If attacks do not occur, it will be because nobody tried very hard. Stopping them would require excluding Moslems, deporting them, or controlling them by totalitarian methods. Or, improbably, minding our own business in the Middle East. What you think of the foregoing approaches doesn’t matter, since none of them will be used. In France the result would be a civil war. America is too divided to do anything about anything. The notion that the government can prevent terrorism suggests studied inattention to the obvious.  To begin, the intelligence agencies have proved useless. NSA did not prevent the first attack on the Twin Towers in 1993, nor the successful one. French intelligence did not prevent the recent attacks in Paris, … Continue reading

Based on today’s prices the the heist is worth over $8 million.The Toronto-based company said it maintains insurance against these types of incidents and is working closely with its insurance carrier to determine the extent of available coverage, but its policy will not be sufficient to cover the entire expected loss.

Find Gold and Silver Miners that Can Soar

Source: Brian Sylvester of The Gold Report  (2/11/15) Avoid Dodos and Find Gold and Silver Miners that Can Soar, Says Raymond James’ Chris Thompson Chris Thompson, mining analyst with Raymond James, is looking for companies that can continue to deliver real growth and shareholder upside—companies that can “fly”—regardless of metal prices. The high-flyers with upside, Thompson says, have good management, strong cash flow at current metal prices, organic growth potential and are undervalued relative to their peers offering those same attributes. In this interview with The Gold Report, Thompson offers some precious metal names that could soar. The Gold Report: A recent Raymond James research report refers to silver as the “devil’s metal.” What is the story there? Chris Thompson: Silver is much more volatile than gold. Typically when we see a weak day for the gold price, silver has a terrible day. Likewise, if we see a strong day for gold, typically silver delivers exceptional … Continue reading

The Companies Bob Moriarty Loves for the Long Term

Source: Karen Roche, The Gold Report  (2/9/15) The rapid and massive response when the Swiss unpegged the franc from the euro will ripple across the hedge fund, brokerage and financial systems. It also will infect other currencies, according to Bob Moriarty of321gold.com. Gold, he believes, will be the last man standing. In this interview, he tells The Gold Report where he is looking for love among midtier gold and silver stocks and explains why he has no love for overpaid CEOs. The Gold Report: The Swiss National Bank surprised the world by unpegging the franc from the euro. You wrote that you suspect this will be identified as the beginning of the end and that when the derivatives market blows up, it will take down billions of dollars in hedge funds. Is this the beginning of the end of derivatives and hedge funds or the beginning of the end of something bigger? Bob Moriarty: The beginning of … Continue reading

Where are the mining concessions in Mexico?

February 2, 2015 Geo-Mexico.com A series of graphics prepared by Mexico City daily El Universal includes a map showing the details of all the mining concessions in Mexico. According to the newspaper’s analysis, one fifth of Mexico’s total land area is subject to mining concessions belonging to one company or another. The six companies holding the largest areas of concessions are: Altos Hornos de México (364 concessions totaling 3208 hectares) Fresnillo PLC (1009; 1953) Industrias Peñoles (922; 953) Minera Fresco (779; 889) Cascabel (116; 749) and Grupo México (711; 607).

Is there a mining concession near you? You might be surprised. Even in an area of Mexico … Continue reading

Can a Doublewide Save Your Retirement?

By Dennis Miller The rumors are true: Florida is full of 55-plus communities with rows of doublewide mobile homes. The nicer ones have amenities like golf courses, swimming pools, clubhouses… you name it. As you’d expect, the living cost is modest. But here’s the part that blows people away: many of the people who live in these communities are quite wealthy. That’s right—not everyone living in a doublewide is a NASCAR fan. My wife and I have friends who live in these communities… people who’ve enjoyed successful careers and built up respectable nest eggs. They still play golf or tennis and participate in the weekly wine and cheese party. Their biggest complaint, frankly, is having a social calendar that’s too packed. What’s their secret? None looked at downsizing as a step down. Instead, they considered it a prudent way to free up their time and money. These folks are 100% … Continue reading
