By Cory댊 Hour 1 – Central Bank Recap and Gold Weakness

Download audio file (0616-KER-Hour-1.mp3)

We all knew there was a lot of news that could move markets this week and we were not disappointing. The Fed, ECB and BoJ all released statements along with economic data out of the US and China. The takeaway from the markets was continued US equity and dollar strength and gold and silver weakness, all thanks to the drop on Friday.

On the first hour on this week’s show we focus on the importance of the central bank statements which were all on the hawkish bend and the drop in precious metals. The takeaway is very much don’t worry about the drop in gold and silver but understand it will be while before a major breakout occurs.

  • Segment 1: We kick off with a comprehensive recap of the Fed and ECB statements with Marc Chandler, Head of Global Currency Strategy at Brown Brothers Harriman.
  • Segment 2: Avi Gilburt shares his thoughts on the gold and silver sectors. We review the GLD, silver and GDX charts as well as a quick comment on the US markets.
  • Segment 3: John Kaiser provides his thoughts on the recent drill results out of Skeena Resources and a look at a zinc company he thinks is being ignored.
  • Segment 4: We wrap up the first hour with the President of the Mises Institute Jeff Deist with comments on the Fed and its Chairman Jerome Powell.

By Cory댊 The International Safe Have Play Of US Stocks, USD, and PMs

The markets yesterday were fascinating. US markets up (especially tech), USD had a big move up, while precious metals also put in some gain lead by silver. Chris Vermeulen, Chief Investment Strategist over at TheTechnicalTraders.com shares his thought on an over safe haven play from international investors. The PMs along with all things US moving higher, or at least holding gains, in the face of a more hawkish Fed. This could also be a reason for metals stocks to be muted. We discuss it all.

Skeena Intersects 36.65 g/t Gold over 2.0 Metres at Snip

The news out of Skeena Resources today encompasses drill results from infill drilling at the known mineralized zone as well as the new drilling at the 200 Footwall Corridor. This 200 Footwall is true exploration and could be a major driver for the Company. The area is an unexplored area where Walt and his team are hoping to find another Twin Zone. Hole UG18-091 intersected “5.87 g/t Au over 8.6 m including 26.20 g/t Au over 1.5 m,9.07 g/t Au over 0.5 m and 9.22 g/t Au over 0.5 m”. Walt and I discussed the excitement his team has for this drilling in our past interview. Be sure to click the link below to listen.

Click here to listen to our recent interview looking ahead to the drilling of the 200 Footwall.

Click here to visit the Skeena Resources website for more information.

Please send me any questions you have for Walt. I will be setting up a call with him next week to discuss. Fleck@kereport.com.

…Here’s the news…

New Mineralization Discovered in 200 Footwall Corridor

Vancouver, BC (June 14, 2018) Skeena Resources Limited (TSX.V: SKE, OTCQX: SKREF) (“Skeena” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce additional assays from 11 holes of the Phase II underground drilling program at the Company’s 100% owned Snip Gold Project (“Snip”) located in the Golden Triangle of British Columbia.

The Phase II drilling program totalling 11,000 m is being performed from the existing underground infrastructure utilizing two drill rigs. Building upon the data gathered from the recently completed 2017 Phase I campaign, the 2018 program is designed to further delineate known mineralization with low drill density and to expand newly modelled zones via widely spaced exploratory step-out drill holes. Reference mine sections are presented at the end of this release as well as on the Company’s website.

Phase II Drilling Highlights:

  • 7.27 g/t Au over 3.0 m (UG18-074)
  • 28.25 g/t Au over 1.0 m (UG18-079)
  • 10.95 g/t Au over 2.6 m (UG18-079)
  • 36.65 g/t Au over 2.0 m (UG18-080)
  • 95.00 g/t Au over 0.5 m (UG18-080)
  • 7.87 g/t Au over 3.3 m (UG18-080)
  • 17.60 g/t Au over 1.5 m (UG18-081)
  • 26.20 g/t Au over 1.5 m (UG18-081)

New 200 Footwall Corridor Expands

In an historically unexplored portion of the easternmost footwall mine stratigraphy, Phase II drill hole UG18-081 successfully intersected the recently modelled 200 Footwall Corridor over a wide interval grading 5.87 g/t Au over 8.6 m including 26.20 g/t Au over 1.5 m,9.07 g/t Au over 0.5 m and 9.22 g/t Au over 0.5 m. Spatially, these new intersections correlate with the interpreted strike extension of the 200 Footwall Corridor and represent an up-plunge expansion 100 m east of historic 1997 underground drill hole UG-1701 (26.67 g/t Au over 4.4 m). Past drilling programs by previous operators focused on the historically mined Twin Zone and not the exploration potential of the footwall. As such, these new intersections are open for expansion due to the lack of drilling in this area.

Infill Drilling Continues to Demonstrate Grade Continuity

Delineation drilling of the Eastern Twin Zone and 412 Veining Corridors continues to upgrade geological and grade confidence of the historical database in preparation for a maiden resource estimate at Snip. This is demonstrated by drill hole UG18-080 in the 412 Corridor which intersected 36.65 g/t Au over 2.0 m, including 142.00 g/t Au over 0.5 m. Drill hole UG18-080 also intersected additional 412 Corridor mineralization grading95.00 g/t Au over 0.5 m and Eastern Twin Zone mineralization averaging 7.87 g/t Au over 3.3 m including 45.6 g/t Au over 0.5 m.

Gold Market Commentary – Thu 14 Jun, 2018

Silver/Gold ratio working on 7-year breakout!

The silver/gold relationship is a key one to watch. Silver is finally outperforming gold and more importantly silver moving up while gold is holding steady (even in the face of good economic numbers and a hawkish Fed). As our friend Chris Kimble, from Kimble Charting Solutions points out this ratio is breaking out of a long-term downtrend line. While this ratio could quickly reverse this is a very good sign for the PM bulls and signifies a potential shift in the PM sector.

Click here to visit Chris’s site for more straight forward market comments.


This chart looks at the Silver ETF (SLV), Gold ETF (GLD) ratio over the past 10-years.

Metals bulls want to see this ratio heading higher and since 2011, the opposite has been happening. The large decline over the past 7-years has this key ratio testing important support, where a long-awaited opportunity could be near.

The ratio has found line (1) as support a couple of times over the past decade. It hit this support line of late and is now working on a breakout of 7-year falling resistance at (2). Historically when this ratio is moving higher, it is sending a positive message to both Silver and Gold.

Below looks Silver Futures over the past 7-years-


Silver has been trading in a very narrow range for the past couple of years, as it is forming a narrowing pennant pattern.

It is now testing 2-year and 7-year break out levels at the same time at (1). If Silver breakouts out at (1), it should attract buyers and push Silver higher.

If you would like to stay on top of opportunities in the Silver, Gold, Miners and Copper markets, we would be honored if you were a Metals Member.

High-resolution Till-sampling Results in Refined Drill Targets for 2018 at Committee Bay

I have received a number of questions for Ivan but unfortunately with my recent travel schedule and Ivan’s we have been unable to lock down a time. The good news is that we have a call planned for next week where we will address the questions that have come in as well as the recent news. This includes the news release from today which is below.

If you have any additional questions for Ivan please email me directly at Fleck@kereport.com.

…Here’s the news…

Vancouver, British Columbia – June 14, 2018 – Auryn Resources Inc. (TSX: AUG, NYSE American: AUG) (“Auryn” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that high-resolution till sampling has become an integral layer of data for six targets at Committee Bay, Nunavut. These targets include the already disclosed Aiviq sampling, which was drilled in 2017.

The gold assay results from the high-resolution (100 meter by 100 meter spacing) till surveys across nine regional targets (Figure 1) demonstrate greater precision for identifying the potential source areas of high-grade gold mineralization seen throughout the belt. The results of the surveys have delineated gold-in-till anomalies that are consistent with the size of potential deposit footprints and will form the basis of future drill campaigns at Committee Bay.

A Message from Auryn’s Executive Chair:

Executive Chairman and Director Ivan Bebek stated, “These results significantly improve our level of understanding of the 300km long Committee Bay gold project and better positions us for potential discovery. The tighter-spaced till sampling has demonstrated just how close we were to the potential sources of gold during the 2017 drill campaign.”

Mr. Bebek further stated, “We are looking forward to confirming our theory in our 2018 drill program, which we are currently planning.”

The Use of High-Resolution Tills to Redefine Targets:

Originally, the high-resolution tills were collected during the 2017 summer exploration program to be analyzed using portable X-Ray fluorescence technology. After receiving the results from the Aiviq discovery drill hole (12.2 meters at 4.7g/t Au), Auryn sent the high-resolution tills to ALS laboratories for ICP to analyze for gold. The gold results demonstrated that the high-grade discovery drill hole spatially overlapped with the gold results from the high-resolution tills. In addition, these results also redefined targets that had not been adequately drilled in 2017 (Figure 2).

Five of the nine regional targets have returned discrete new gold targets from the high-resolution tills. These incl ude the Koffy, Kalulik, Aarluk, Kanosak, and Castle Rock target areas (Figures 3 – 7).

A Message from Auryn’s Chief Geologist:

Michael Henrichsen, COO and Chief Geologist stated, “Auryn’s technical team considers the high-resolution till data as a critical step in our exploration process to delineate source areas of gold mineralization under till cover. Ultimately, we feel the drill results from the 2017 summer campaign did not explain the strength of a number of the till anomalies associated with high-grade gold in boulders. We feel the new high-resolution gold-in-till results will lead us to the bedrock sources of mineralization.”

Michael Henrichsen, P.Geo, COO of Auryn, is the Qualified Person who assumes responsibility for the technical disclosures in this press release.
