Lust for gold never ends

The supposed treasure find of $ 130 billion in gold on a sunken Russian warship is already being called a scam by major news outlets.

The Daily Mail and Reuters have each published online articles on the topic.

What is interesting to me is the angle that the find story is also connected to a cryptocurrency scheme.

In recent months, we have seen investors almost literally throwing money at cryptocurrency enterprises.

Prospectuses by new firms have literally claimed that they will only decide what to do with the funds raised after they have received them.

If it is that easy to lay claim to large sums of money with a cryptocurrency story, why would you bother to connect it to a story about a Russian gold treasure?

Coin collectors can probably now dismiss the idea that they will ever have access to historic coins and bars from the Donskoi.

This Russian warship was sunk by the Japanese in 1905 during the war between the two countries.

It is too bad there is no treasure.

Even as skeptical as I am, I am at heart a bit of a kid when it comes to numismatic adventure stories.

Who wouldn’t want these claims to be true?

Such an outcome is so much more exciting than ordinary day-to-day life.

There is an element of wanting to believe in Santa Claus in this.

Charlie Brown always tries to kick the football even as he knows Lucy will take it away.

Collectors flock to new Mint issues in hopes of making a killing.

Remember the long lines and extra police required when the U.S. Mint offered 500 proof gold Kennedy half dollars at the American Numismatic Association convention in 2014?

I interviewed the lucky four individuals who were first in line that day and wrote a front-page story about it for Numismatic News.

Those first four coins were sold to David Hendrickson of SilverTowne for $ 20,000.

This was not a bad return for buying four coins at $ 1,240 each after spending all night waiting in line.

Even gold Kennedy buyers further back in line were able to triple their money.

This is the stuff of dreams.

This is why the U.S. Mint has so many online sellouts.

You can buy a slabbed Proof-70 Ultra Cameo gold Kennedy from that ANA convention for $ 1,395 on the APMEX website.

You have a choice of grading services.

That price really is an incredible deal.

It is not much of a markup from issue price.

But what is missing from these coins now is the hope to strike it rich that animated massive interest in it in the first place.

But we know that just as there will be other sunken treasure stories, there will be more new Mint issues.

Metallis Announces Expansion of Mineralized Hawilson Monzonite, Drill Targets Identified and 2% NSR Purchase

Metallis Resources Inc (TSXV:MTS)(“Metallis” or the “Company”) announces positive results from its 2018 Phase 1 exploration program (the “Program”) and has planned the first of two drilling campaigns on its 100%-owned Kirkham Property (the “Property”), prospective for multiple deposit types in the prolific Eskay camp of northwest British Columbia.

In addition, the Company confirms it has completed the purchase of a pre-existing 2% net smelter return (“NSR”) royalty, securing 100% unencumbered ownership over several critical target areas of the Property, including the entire 7km length of the Hawilson Monzonite (“HM”) which contains the Cole, King, Nina, Natt and Cliff targets. The NSR was purchased under a Right of First Refusal for US$ 300,000.

Exploration Program Highlights:

  • Detailed mapping has extended the mineralized HM from ~6km to a strike-length of greater than 7km with an average width of ~350m, enhancing the volume potential of the porphyry copper-gold mineralization along this NS-trending corridor (click here to see map).
  • The Cole prospect is identified as a much wider (~450m), well preserved porphyry copper-gold system with geological features (i.e. geometry, potassic alteration, veins and sulphides) similar to Seabridge Gold’s Kerr deposit located ~25km to the east of the Kirkham Property. The historic geochemical sampling results in rocks range from 0.2% to 0.5% Cu and up to 20.7 g/t Au at the Cole prospect – supporting the presence of a gold-rich system.
  • 2018 exploration to the north of the Cole prospect discovered two angular blocks of monzonite with pervasive phyllic alteration, silification and pyrite-bornite mineralization, a grab sample of one assayed 1.39% Cu and 26.6 g/t Au.
  • Results from field mapping along with the interpretation of the new geophysical and geochemical results has enabled the Metallis technical team to design the initial 2018 drilling program which will focus on the Cliff, Nina and Cole porphyry centers clustered along the NS-trending HM, located within the southern portion of the Kirkham Property.

The geological mapping, geochemical and prospecting program was focused on the continued evaluation of the porphyry copper-gold potential of the HM. The HM is associated with the Early Jurassic Texas Creek plutonic suite which hosts some of the well-known precious-metal rich ore deposits in the Golden Triangle including Galore Creek, Red Chris, Kemess, Mt. Milligan and KSM. Initial results from this program re-defined the geological framework, structural setting and dimensions of the HM porphyry corridor, which is now greater than 7km in length, ~350m wide and greater than 800m deep.

Metallis’ technical team has identified three key areas of interest based on the intensity and volume of the alteration footprint, veins and strong geochemical responses: The Cliff, the Nina and the Cole targets, for which the 2018 drilling locations have been selected. (Click here for map) The Nina and Cole targets are especially significant because Dr. Abdul Razique (Metallis’ Chief Geologist) has identified several deeply overprinted zones of higher grade, gold-rich epithermal mineralization. Jeff Kyba (former BCGS District geologist and member of the Company’s Advisory Board) believes the Cole prospect shares geological similarities with Seabridge Gold’s nearby Kerr copper-gold deposit.

Mapping and sampling at the Nina prospect has shown that the mineralization and alteration continues northward from the Cliff zone. Most of the rock grab samples in this area returned values greater than 1500ppm copper and up to 0.67 g/t gold.

Fiore Aliperti, Metallis Resources President and CEO, commented: “Having Jeff Kyba on the ground supporting Dr. Razique this year was an excellent opportunity for our technical team to get a real understanding of the structure of the Hawilson Monzonite which included expanding it by over a kilometer. We have identified firm targets to drill and will start within the week. In addition, the recent purchase of the 2% NSR demonstrates our full confidence in this area of the Kirkham Property.” He added, “Upon completion of this initial phase, we will commence Phase 2 of the 2018 exploration program in the north of our property, where along with Dr. Peter Lightfoot, our geological team will concentrate efforts on our nickel targets.”

About the Kirkham Property

The 106 sq.km Kirkham Property is located about 65km north of Stewart, B.C. within the prolific Golden Triangle. The northern border of Kirkham is contiguous to Garibaldi Resources’ E&L Nickel Mountain Project whereas the northeast corner of the property is within 12km of the Eskay Creek mine and the eastern border is within 15 – 20km of Seabridge Gold’s KSM deposits and Pretium Resources’ Brucejack mine.

Aeroponics Could Revolutionize Both Cannabis and Food Production

Aeroponic growing methods are gaining steam in the agricultural world, and that’s a positive development for more than one industry.

Usable farmland around the world is increasingly being lost as environmental factors render it unusable, or the land is simply used for purposes other than agriculture. At the same time, concerns about water and energy conservation are making it clear that the agriculture sector is in need of innovative solutions to maintain food sustainability. This has fueled the vertical farming revolution.

While it’s not always thought of as such, the burgeoning legal cannabis industry is as much an agricultural industry as agri-food, and so many of these issues are just as relevant in that space. A solution for indoor growing that provides a consistent, high-quality product while saving on space and other resources is every bit the game changer for cannabis growers as it could be for food producers.

This INNspired Article is brought to you by:

James E. Wagner Cultivation (JWC) (TSXV:JWCA) is a cannabis company implementing a proprietary growing process that is based on aeroponic technology originally designed by Richard Stoner in the 1980’s and further researched by NASA. JWC’s proprietary methodology, GrowthStorm™, is being deployed in a 15,000-square-foot retrofitted facility in Kitchener, Ontario and the company is in the process of constructing an additional 345,000 square feet nearby.Send me an Investor Kit

Introducing aeroponics

Aeroponics is a cutting-edge, highly controlled method of crop cultivation. Basically, it’s a method of growing crops out of the ground with no soil and very little water. The exact design differs from setup to setup, but the common idea is that plants grown in aeroponic systems are suspended vertically by the stem while the dangling roots are regularly sprayed with a nutrient-rich solution in the form of an atomized mist by a system of automatic nozzles. Solution that is not absorbed by the roots is usually collected in a chamber below for reuse. This method allows for plants to be grown in a closed environment and arranged vertically, allowing vertical farms to take up comparatively little space.

The technology has been around in various forms for decades, but as costs and other issues associated with growing food have increased, aeroponics has seen something of a renaissance in recent years, particularly for small-scale operations looking to cut costs.

The benefits

There are a host of benefits that stem from the aeroponic approach to farming. Aeroponics offers greater efficiency than perhaps any other method available, using 90 percent less water than traditional in-ground farming, or up to 40 percent less water than even the most efficient hydroponics setup. This reduced dependency on water has benefits beyond cost savings. As 70 percent of water use worldwide is for irrigation purposes, large-scale adoption of water-efficient farming techniques like aeroponics could go a long way to protecting one of the planet’s most important and vulnerable resources.

Free from the need to dedicate space to soil, aeroponics setups allow plants to be spaced closer together, which in turn allows growers to grow more plants using less total space. This could be a practical solution in places where agriculture-suited land is expensive or in short supply. The indoor grow space and absence of soil also mean that there’s reduced risk of plant-eating pests.

The benefits extend beyond resource efficiency. There have been several studies conducted over the years that have shown that plants grown aeroponically can exceed their traditionally grown counterparts in quality. This is partly because the roots are uniformly saturated in nutrients rather than having to compete for them in soil. The process also offers growers an unprecedented level of control over the growing process, with growers able to see first hand the health of the roots and adjust nutrient solutions accordingly. For food crops, this means larger, more nutritious and tastier yields. For cannabis, growers are able to produce some of the cleanest and most consistent product available.

We’ve only begun to realize the potential of aeroponic farming, but the technology actually has roots dating back to the early 20th century, when botanists developed a crude form of aeroponics in order to study root structures. In the late 1980s, engineer Richard Stoner invented and patented the one of the first modern forms of aeroponics, developing a prototype for growing herbs in a greenhouse and founding the agri-biotechnology company AgriHouse.

The technology caught the attention of NASA in the 1990s. The space agency saw the technology as a possible solution to many of the inherent problems with growing food in low gravity. Not only were the results of NASA’s orbital aquaponics experiments encouraging, but the experiments gave the technology a huge media exposure boost and a space-age image, paving the way for adoption of aeroponics across the agriculture industry.

It’s not surprising that the cannabis industry has taken notice of aeroponics, as the same factors that make this growing method attractive for food growth apply to cannabis cultivation. One of the largest hurdles for a cannabis producer is acquiring grow space, so the option to forgo soil makes aeroponics a practical solution. The reduced water requirement is beneficial to both growers and the communities that host them. Perhaps most importantly from a business perspective, aeroponics can produce large yields of excellent bud in terms of size, consistency and trichome quality and, of course, potency.

Aeroponics players

Cannabis-producing company James E. Wagner Cultivation (TSXV:JWCA) has made one of the cannabis industry’s largest bets on aeroponic technology. The company has developed a proprietary aeroponic growing process that it is calling “GrowthStorm.” Based on the design originally developed by Stoner back in the 1980s, the company says that GrowthStorm produces cannabis with 25-percent cannabinoid product, rather than the 20-percent industry standard.

James E. Wagner is currently conducting its aeroponic growing out of a 15,000-square-foot retrofitted facility in Kitchener, Ontario. The company plans to expand its operations with a 345,000-square-foot facility currently under construction. The company also has plans to establish licensing agreements with other licensed producers in the near future, further expanding aeroponic technology’s footprint in the cannabis industry.

Liberty Leaf Holdings (CSE:LIB,OTCQB:LIBFF) completed its Just Kush facility in BC’s Okanagan Valley in 2018. The 13-acre facility incorporates the company’s own proprietary aeroponic grow system. Agri-tech startup GrowX is also developing aeroponics technology, hoping that improving the technology can revolutionize not just the cannabis market but the entire vertical farming space. AeroFarms has spent over US$ 30 million on developing vertical farming facilities that utilize aeroponics technology. Like other companies in the space, AeroFarms is aware of the potential the technology has to solve global food sustainability issues.

Takeaway

Experts have noted the potential of innovative vertical farming techniques to usher in a “third green revolution,” providing desperately needed means to provide food security worldwide. The cannabis industry is at the forefront of developing this technology with implications that go well beyond cannabis.

In the shorter term, aeroponics is set to become a game changer in cannabis production, increasing yields, quality and consistency while providing an opportunity for innovative companies to establish themselves in a fast-growing industry.

De Beers Canada to Buy Peregrine Diamonds for C$107 Million

The Canadian branch of global mega miner De Beers has entered into an arrangement agreement to purchase Canadian diamond miner Peregrine Diamonds (TSX:PGD).

The deal will see De Beers acquire all of Peregrine’s outstanding common shares for C$ 0.24 per share, for a grand total of approximately C$ 107 million. The transaction represents a 50-percent premium to Peregrine’s stock price of C$ 0.16 on July 18, 2018.

Peregrine’s flagship asset is its wholly-owned, 317,213-hectare Chidliak project, located 120 kilometers from Iqaluit, the capital of Nunavut. To date, 74 kimberlites have been discovered at the site, with eight being potentially economic.

“We have consistently stated that Chidliak holds significant diamond mine development potential and this transaction is an excellent outcome for the company’s stakeholders, including shareholders, community members and the territory of Nunavut,” said Tom Peregoodoff, Peregrine’s president and CEO.

An updated preliminary economic assessment, completed earlier this month, pegged the inferred mineral resource for Chidliak at 17.96 million carats, with a life of mine of 13 years.

It was likely these positive results motivated De Beers to pursue Peregrine.

“The transaction ensures the next steps in mine development are taken by a world-class operator with recognized arctic mine development and operational experience, and ensures stakeholders will benefit from responsible development of this rare and unique diamond resource,” added Peregoodoff.

Earlier this year, De Beers signed an non-binding memorandum of understanding with another Canadian diamond miner and project partner Mountain Province Diamonds (TSX:MPVD).

The deal was dependent on Mountain acquiring Kennady Diamonds, a purchase which was completed at the end of March. Kennady had owned the property adjacent to the Gahcho Kué diamond mine in Canada’s Northwest Territories, a project now owned by joint partners De Beers and Mountain Province.

The Peregrine acquisition further bolsters De Beers presence in northern Canada.

“The Peregrine team has done outstanding work progressing the Chidliak project, demonstrating its quality and high potential. With our extensive De Beers Group operating experience in similar Canadian arctic environments and employing innovative mining methods, we believe we are very well positioned to develop this resource further,” said Kim Truter, CEO, De Beers Canada.

Following the announcement that Peregrine would be acquired, the company’s share price jumped almost 46 percent, sitting at C$ 0.23 at 2:53 p.m. EST.

3 Factors That Could Boost Gold’s Performance in the H2 2018

The World Gold Council’s (WGC) Mid-year Outlook Report for 2018 has been released, and it notes that gold was down more than 4 percent in Q2.

The council believes that despite a dismal performance in the second quarter of this year, the precious metal will rally due to positive but uneven economic growth, trade wars and their impact on currency and rising inflation and an inverted yield curve.

“[G]old’s price momentum and investor positioning in derivatives markets has accelerated its descent. We believe, however, that there may be reasons to be more optimistic during the second half of the year,” the WGC says in the report.

Here’s a look at three key macro trends that will influence the yellow metal’s behavior in the second half of the year, according to the WGC.

1. Positive but uneven economic growth

One of the first factors that WGC believes will positively impact gold for the remainder of 2018 is economic growth, even if its patterns are uneven from region to region.

“Global growth has generally been increasing over the past couple of years. But this growth has not been consistent across regions. As we look forward, however, we see support for gold from key regions,” the WGC states.

The first region where the WGC sees support for the yellow metal is in China.

The report states, “[a]s China has transitioned from an investment-driven to a consumption-driven economic model, its growth rate has slowed slightly. However, as it becomes less dependent from foreign investment and solidifies its leading role in Asia, China’s economic expansion will likely be more robust.”

The WGC believes that China’s expanding economy, paired with the size of the Chinese local market, will likely produce positive results for gold.

The WGC also believes that India will prove successful for gold in Q3 and beyond.

“The second half of the year is usually positive for gold as the harvest and wedding seasons during the autumn provide seasonal support for the market. In addition, the economic policies rolled out by the government to draw the informal, cash-based economy into the formal sector are starting to translate into stronger economic growth: India’s Q1 GDP growth rate was close to 7.7 percent – making it one of the fastest growing economies in the world,” the WGC states.

Finally, the US economy has also been making gains since around 2016 and demand for gold jewellery has risen.

2. Trade war and its impact on currencies

While the WGC acknowledges that the US dollar has made impressive gains during the second quarter of this year, analysts are quick to note that all the reasoning behind the uptick cannot be placed on rising US interest rates as they have been increasing since 2016.

“It would be easy to apportion this trend to higher US interest rates, but rates have been increasing consistently since the end of 2016 – a period during which the US dollar generally depreciated. Instead, the dollar strength is due to a combination of two factors; continued easy monetary policy in other parts of the world [and] a perception that the US may be better placed to benefit from trade wars, at least in the short term,” the WGC says.

Despite these factors, several economists believe that an increase in tariffs, and thus the spike in trade war concerns, will eventually have a negative impact on economic growth. However, while this could decelerate gold demand slightly, its effect may be lessened by a weakened greenback, which, as history has shown, pushes forward the price of gold.

3. Rising inflation and an inverted yield curve

While inflation has been rising slowly over the past few years, it now sits close to 2 percent in Europe and China, 2.9 percent in the US, and 5 percent in India, to show a few examples.

The WGC notes, “[l]ooking forward, the expansion of protectionist economic policies has significantly increased the risk that inflation will accelerate further. And companies facing higher tariffs will likely pass the bill to consumers. Historically, investors have used gold as an inflation hedge, with the result that its price has increased substantially when inflation rises above 3 percent.”

When a combination of high inflation and a decline in economic growth come together it can create a complicated scenario for central banks.

“This is especially true for the Fed, as its mandate includes price stability, full employment and moderate long-term interest rates,” the WGC adds.

As stock prices continue to rise, US bond markets are beginning to place greater probability on higher inflation and lower growth.

“On the one hand, TIPS and TIPS breakevens (a proxy for inflation) have continued to rise, but the nominal yield curve has flattened significantly and is close to becoming inverted,” the WGC says.

This is due to the fact that an inverted yield curve has proved to be a precursor to recessions in the US.

Although it is impossible to time the market, investors have generally benefited from holding gold during periods of economic decline.

Piedmont Delivers Scoping Study for North Carolina Lithium Project

A new scoping study from Piedmont Lithium (ASX:PLL,NASDAQ:PLLL) shows its lithium project in North Carolina will be able to produce 22,700 tonnes of lithium hydroxide per year.

The Piedmont project, which is set to have an initial 13-year mine life, will be developed in two stages to minimize upfront capital requirements and start-up risk.

According to the company, stage one will feature a capital investment of US$ 91 million for the mine and concentrator. Meanwhile, stage two, devoted to the chemical plant, will come with a US$ 252.6-million price tag and will be funded by internal cashflow.

The 22,700 tonnes of lithium hydroxide will be produced at Piedmont’s chemical plant, which will be supported by a mine/concentrator putting out 170,000 tonnes per year of 6-percent lithium oxide low-iron spodumene concentrate. The asset is estimated to have average life-of-project cash operating costs of about US$ 3,960 per tonne.

The study sets the project’s annual EBITDA at US$ 220 million, with steady after-tax cash flow of US$ 170 to US$ 180 million. Its estimated after-tax IRR comes in at 56 percent, with its after-tax NPV sitting at US$ 777 million at a discount rate of 8 percent.

Piedmont’s president and CEO, Keith D. Phillips, said in a statement that the company is happy with the results of the scoping study, and emphasized that it will economically benefit North Carolina.

“The economic benefit of developing an integrated lithium chemical business in North Carolina, USA is now clear, driven by the exceptional infrastructure and human resource advantages of our location, as well as the competitive royalty and tax regime offered in the United States,” he said.

Phillips added, “[w]e look forward to an exciting period ahead as we work to enhance the Project even further through continued growth in our resource base and project life, and the evaluation of potential by-product credits.”

The company will now move forward with a prefeasibility study for the Piedmont project, targeted for completion in early 2019. The study will work on developing a by-product study, additional drilling on the core property and metallurgical studies.

As of 2:25 p.m. EST on Thursday (July 19), Piedmont’s share price was sitting at AU$ 0.185, up 5.71 percent. The company’s share price has increased 105.56 percent in the last year.

Andrew Miller: Lithium Deals, China’s Conversion Capacity and Prices

It’s been an interesting year so far for the lithium market, with many project developments, deals and forecasts impacting investor sentiment. As a result, many lithium-focused investors are wondering what’s next for the market?

At this year’s Lithium Supply and Markets conference in Las Vegas, the Investing News Network had the chance to catch up with Benchmark Mineral Intelligence senior analyst Andrew Miller, who shared his insight on the lithium market.

Speaking about the current state of demand, Miller said demand growth in China had been a bit slower in the first half of the year, something he expects to improve in the second half.

“We are starting to enter that period where the electric vehicle demand is becoming a reality, is becoming a real driving force in the industry. And I think you’re going to see signs of that certainly in the second half of the year and moving into 2019, as we approach the ramp up in many of the megafactories,” Miller said.

Looking over to supply, the expert explained that despite the concerns seen at the start of the year, the key is in China’s conversion capacity.

He added, “the question then becomes where is the conversion capacity in China? And how much is actually really available? And then again, how much of that is going to be battery-grade material?

“From our perspective, we spend a lot of time on the road in the first half of the year visiting these plants, looking at the conversion facilities and making our own independent assessment of where we see that going. And we think there is going to be a bit of a bottleneck especially in terms of producing a battery-grade material,” Miller said.

In terms of deals, he expects the lithium market to see more partnerships and agreements, and potential investments between different companies in the supply chain.

“I think that’s just something that’s going to continue and escalate in the next couple of years,” he added.

Listen to the interview above for more insight from Miller, including his thoughts on Australia and South America, prices and what will be the key drivers of the market in the next few months.
