This long term Sandspring deal is something I thought Smallwood was going to launch with Bear Creek the Peruvian massive held in reserve money in Peru.
Maybe they still will they already own 13% of the fully diluted shares.
SLW is ripe for adding shares to when it trades below spot silver.
With SLW at 22 and spot at 21.7 it is tempting to pull the trigger.
I thought the below metric was meaningful prior to the Vale deal and yesterday Constancia deal.
Now said metric is very telling!
A nice add on to an existing stream.
Since they are already looking at Hudabay's Constancia project why not add to the bling that is being accounted for...... When you translate Constancia you think of words like "proof"and/or "for the record."
For the record......SLW late winter Vale deal will have significant cash flow additions to the final two quarters of this calendar year....and this deal will be remembered down the road as a cherry picking add on to an already quality Hudbay deal.
It should be noted Hudbay needs stabilization and/or a bump in Cu price to make SLW all the more happy.
I appreciate your demotion to 4th rate Lawyer.....I cherish your opinion of me with honor.
On another board recently I was asked how was the devil doing. I replied....
"The devil is doing just fine. However, he remains powerless is the face of truth and a well exercised free will."
Here to you SS
Why does a 3rd rate lawyer see what Obama & Hillary could not?
Or is it with all the buildings they have filled with advisors who have careers and pensions to see these very things....... could it possibly be they just missed it?
Could it be that Obama and Hillary received solid advice but allowed chaos to devolve regardless?

After Obama's speech just h now and his previous cheerleading he owns the outcome. Knowing the participants and the agitators involved the average Egyptian will likely regret the result. Both Biden and Obama said the result needs to be irrevocable. If I was Mubarak I would flee. When the Bolsheviks wanted to assure no return they murdered Nicholas II, his wife, his son, his four daughters, the family's medical doctor, the Tsar's valet, the lady-in-waiting and the Czar’s family's cook. They even killed their cook. They buried them in a common unmarked grave with no identifying marker. No one was to be allowed to pay respects.
No going back there. When you know your means are going to cause great suffering you need to clear the playing field.
What confidence do we see when we say we can't go back.
They know in the months ahead things will get ugly and going back will be favored. They need to remove the option.
Pokin- Obama owns this now. The ugly will be ignored. Your peaceful protest has a body count which will go much higher. Just as the NYT ignored the atrocities of the Bolsheviks, the slaughters going underreported did not make the mass graves not exist. There are markers on them today. People go there and pray. When they pray they pray for the victims and for the tortured souls that victimized them. Myself I would prefer the mass grave of a victim than a private tomb of a condemned soul (whether it is prayed for or not).
Who painted the tape with a final trade of 14.41? This is 5% off the bid and what it trade at all afternoon.
Not the first time and will not be the last. Friday should be interesting!!!!!!!!!!!!
The HFT computers do not have a computation for suspended target metal sales.
The bots just see the data figures for income/revenue. This provides flesh and blood an advantage here this morning.
It is nice to see a company that refuses to sell into a market manipulated to steal your efforts.
Keith Neumeyer's suspending sales of the target metal reminds me of Rob McCewen's Goldcorp days of not selling his Gold when London was emptying its vault at well under $300.
Today's events in Tahrir Square made me think of PokinPalin advocating what she characterized as a peaceful protest. In December 2012 I reminded Pokin how wrong and/or propaganda-esque her advocacy of the peaceful protests was and now proves to be.
A repost from December2012
Pokin Palin Peacel Protest Update-unobtainable utopian objectives
All is not quite on the Middle eastern Front.
And all it took was for Obama to abandon the secular and engage in 'thoughtful diplomacy'.
If chaos and persecution of innocents is the objective then Pokin your peaceful spring protest is a great success.
No pokin palin I do not believe you to be an intellectual idiot.....I know you then knew this disgraceful day would come.....your disgrace is that your Machiavellian unobtainable utopian objectives allows you to lie and deceive with perceived impunity (from your perspective). But when the smoke clears an objective observer will see truly that the cheerleaders of this inevitable chaos are best defined simply as evil.
You will rank right up there with William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.
You are likely so far gone you think this is a compliment.
May someday you realize that you are the equivalent of a manure spreader of deception and death.
ARLISS AND THE NATURE OF MONEY
How many Disney movies can you think of that open up with an exploration into the nature of money?
I can only think of one. Not quite as in depth as “Atlas Shrugged” but a curious beginning to a Disney movie. It is as if there was no better way to start the picture.
Old Yeller was not Travis' first dog.
Travis' favored first dog Bell was bit by a rattler.
Just after the Civil War Bell was bitten by the head of a rattler "Papa" had separated from its writhing body with a scythe. The favored Bell did not make it.
Was the name of the felled favored first dog an accident?
The young America’s hard fought for Liberty was symbolized by a cracked Bell.
The Civil War had killed the country's innocence causing it to mourn as Travis mourned his favored dog. Then Old Yeller burst onto to the scene calling for the love of a dog and/or liberty once again.
It is difficult not to compare Travis' dogs with America's healing and struggle for liberty.
Travis was given the chance to name the newly arrived stray.
He could have just as easily called him Ishmael.
On a basic level Old Yeller is a kid's story of adventure on the frontier.
But the author of both the book and the screenplay delved into deeper levels of concern even though very simply put.
Below is dialogue from the movie’s opening scene, to wit:
Arliss: “What’s pop gonna sell our steers for?”
Travis: “For money of course!”
Arliss: “What’s money?”
Travis: “It’s what you buy things with.”
Arliss: “What do you mean buy things?”
Travis: “Well you got money ya give it ta people for stuff. They say you can get anything for money.”
Arliss: “Anything!!!!!! What’s it look like?”
Travis: “I never seen but one piece…a dollar bill Papa had. Its paper”
Arliss: “What did Papa get for this dollar?”
Travis: “Nothing it was no good.”
Arliss: “But you just said you could get anything with money!”
Travis: “Well you can..Papa’s was Confederate.”
Arliss: “What’s Confederate money?”
Travis: “Confederate money…well…..it’s……..
Arliss: “ Well!?????”
Travis: “Don’t you ever run out of questions!”
Maybe we should be more like Arliss and ask more questions about the nature of money.
She is not singing yet...she is warming up!
It does not go over well when you see the fraud everyone else chooses to ignore. The parent paying the birthday party magician gets mad when you call the magician on his sleight of hand. When little Bobby Murphy said “He did not pull the rabbit out of his hat….the rabbit was hidden in the trap door in that table he set his hat on! Or “The playing card did not disappear it is hidden up the sleeve of his jacket!” Parents tend to say to other parents “Do not invite that Murphy kid to your party he is a brat!” Why is it we want to believe in the easy way? The worst Christmas was the first one you knew there was no Santa and that it is all a fraud. How many more layers of fraud must we discover throughout our life?
It is a dangerous thing to take things at face value. Perhaps it is more dangerous to think you have it all figured out. Monty Hall had a way of giving the too inquisitive contestant a year’s supply of Turtle Wax.
We have been warned “Do not pay attention to the man behind the curtain!” and “Do not fight the Fed!” How do we reconcile the discomfort of the evil façade before us with the dangers of calling the Potemkin Village for what it is. It is not wise to succumb to fraud and evil. You are not treated as a hero for revealing the fraud for the evil it is. Maybe the truth of the matter is there is no “easy way”. In the end we need to do what others refuse. We need to do what is unpopular. We need to do what is uncomfortable. We need to use our talents. We need to keep our dignity.
You just have to do what you have to.
In the end the fraud will collapse due to psychology.
It will be like a light switch being flicked on from off.
Since the collapse of Bretton Woods and devolution into pure irredeemable paper money the only thing that separated the continuation of the fraud and the collapse was psychology. As long as a populace is willingly duped and accepts nothing as something then the fraud will continue. This is why over the last few decades so much effort has been engaged by the first use of the debt ‘money’ contrived into existence to shape what we think and even if we think. For example:
1) Wall Street stressed perpetual growth into layer upon layer of more complex leverage;
2) Madison Avenue stressed the natural state of debt and instant gratification…..”Do not leave home without it!”…..”put a little weekend in your week!”
3) Healthcare became place where common emotions were medicated away by a dispensary of mood altering drugs
4) Pharmaceutical companies designed hammer drugs and every common emotion became a syndrome and therefore a market to nail
5) Media provided an immersion into the unnatural state that was to be accepted
6) The end results being those that see the contrivance are the eccentric odd man out.
Whatever the form the manipulation takes and even considering the varied forms combined effects the sober clear thinking minds will have their day. Reality cannot be held in suspended animation forever. At some point the animation is seen for what it is and the participants will demand nature itself. The psychological light switch will be turned on. Standing in the light with our eyes wide open we will see that the game is over.
Monetary mayhem and fiscal fiasco don's ya know.
Sometimes manipulators feel that we can prevent the forces of the market from interrupting our convenient manipulations...then reality sets in!
A wise man once said ‘Gentlemen, in applied mathematics, you must describe your unit.’
I like the way Randy Smallwood handled the dividend comment during the conference call.
It is what it is. SLW's costs will be less than 20% of cash flow in almost all situations.
80% of cash flow is plenty to take care of costs and growth/reinvestment.
I would have liked to see him reconsider the retention of metal more positively....certainly in some environments.
It is not that complicated. Keep the metal you are entitled to until the price is right to part with it.
Especially when delivery/payments occur during a spike down market.
There is a balance between withholding metal from the market and not having your pockets picked.
How many times have you made the $10 between $30 and $40 with your SLW trading position?
Besides the general trend it has been easy channel trade.
All the while it adds quality streams.
