    Another SEC Violation

    They are still using words such as "our belief in the compelling economics" and "received significant interest".

    This may be an example of significant interest. Why would these probable shareholders fabricate these statements? From a previous post...

    Allied Nevada was offered 1 share of GG for every 5 shares of ANV ???

When I questioned majority ownership, she said the conditions for the exchange required ANV to own a minimum of 51% of the shares. My rough figures show that Hycroft could be fully funded with as little as 30 million shares

    CDN Currency Swap

    What are the odds it was intentional? The $ Billions in unmined gold & silver beneath Ft. Hycroft, is reason enough.

  • Hinde Capital in London, in cooperation with the free-market advocates of the Cobden Centre, this week published the first part of an interview with former Bank for International Settlements official William R. White, who in a speech in June 2005 to a BIS conference confessed on behalf of the bank to the international central bank gold price suppression scheme: node 4279

    White is now chairman of the Economic and Development Review Committee of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, and in the Cobden Centre interview he expresses skepticism about "quantitative easing," contends that the biggest problem of the world financial system is excessive debt, argues that much of this debt will have to default and be written off, and laments that free markets are being impaired by central bank interest rate-suppression policies that are propping up uneconomic businesses.

    Of course gold price suppression is a prerequisite of interest rate suppression and is just as antithetical to free markets, so it would have been nice if White was questioned about that, especially since his former employer, the BIS, remains the broker for surreptitious central bank interventions in the gold market:

    Corporate Presentation in 8-k...

    markedtofuture markedtofuture Mar 26, 2015 8:31 PM Flag posted this 3 days after the creation of your alias. Do you think $ 2 Billion in environmental claims gets whitewashed?

    Allied Nevada ch 11 is a save our jobs & bondholders program. You don't have the same folks that created the mess, fix it.

    Look what happened when shareholders of Chemtura challenged value of company...

    My answer...
    lenny.squiggy left out the fact they partly resolved environmental claims of more than $2 billion by government agencies for the cost of cleaning up contaminated sites around the U.S.

    Does lenny.squiggy think a certain party is not going to get their money for cleanup?

    Lazard’s Analysis
    “I also believe that Lazard was right to take Solutia into account in its analysis,” Gerber said, adding that he also had an issue with some witnesses’ credibility.
    Chemtura, based in Middlebury, Connecticut, agreed to $26 million in settlements to partly resolve environmental claims of more than $2 billion by government agencies for the cost of cleaning up contaminated sites around the U.S.
    It also has settlements to cover tort claims related to diacetyl, a flavor used to add butter flavor to foods like microwave popcorn.

    goldschlager, It should be emailed to the SEC. There is nothing wrong with covering all the bases.

    When you send that link in an email it highlights blue and when clicked on... DNS error.

    High noon at the (not) OK Crimex Corral

    Somewhere around $1196.80 April is the most they should allow gold to rise before high noon tomorrow. So far gold seems to be held in check right below the "all fall down" $1200 op. ex. call expiry. Of course $1196.80 might still be a little too close for comfort so a raid on gold is also likely between now and then. If so look for silver weakness to signal gold’s imminent attack. Gold really needs to rally as soon as possible after op. ex. and FND.

    It’s a sad commentary on how pathetic rigging and manipulation have become when prognosticating is based on knowing cartel rules, and how to avoid them. Pity the novice that doesn’t know how call option holders have been fleeced for decades. Pity the owners of Wall Street stocks at PE’s between 90 and infinity that don’t remember the years 2001 and 2007. They’ll wish they would have owned physical gold when the next hard lesson is learned.

    Allied Nevada Gold Corp. (15-10503)

  • Lemetropolecafe...

    As always it is important to remember Thursday the 26th is option expiration day for April gold, with a week from today being first notice day. These two events have always been an opportunity for the cartel to impose iron lids anywhere near a big option number. Until this Comex charade is over blasting through $1200 seems remote. If gold does somehow defy its cartel masters it will be a very welcome development.

    It seems silver has broken out above, and fell below $17 at least 50 times in the past week. This is SO unnatural, as typically even a couple consecutive breakouts above previous stiff resistance would get shorts covering in a hurry. The shorts in this instance aren’t worried in the least. Their agenda is capping and thwarting any and all breakouts rather than utilizing normal trading rules.

    Note too how lumber went limit up this morning in a nanosecond on the rumor of China buying from a major Canadian mill. Lumber not only anticipated higher prices, but went limit up on a rumor. How quaint. Panicked shorts and mills pulling bids translate to higher prices in a hurry. This is how gold and silver should trade if there wasn’t a constant presence capping all rallies. We’ll never know how many gold rallies which were capped at 1% could have risen 5% or even 10% had price discovery been allowed. Some day price discovery will return with a vengeance, and +10% will be low volatility. Until then we wait for the lockdown to run its course.

    This will also be a hurry up and wait situation.

    The downturn in the paper price of gold has been brutal. Misleading investors is worse. There are paper trails on the other message board by credible investors who had discussions with investor relations. Certain CC transcripts are perfect play by plays, that convinced investors there were enough funds to do business and so on and so on.

  • markedtofuture markedtofuture Mar 24, 2015 11:41 AM Flag

    Are you trying to convince me or yourself?

    You can always hold your nose and get your cost basis down to pennies on the dollar. Stranger things have happened. Let's speculate management gets the boot for misleading investors and making a cozy deal with unsecured bondholders.

    $30-$50 billion in unmined gold & silver makes for an interesting next few months.
    The institutions with the big pockets will even the playing field. They said too many things that were UNTRUE for those players to disappear.

  • Forbes article -


    Which leaves me with just one prediction to make. Expect to see renewed interest in various species of legislation in Congress calling for subsidy of the US rare earths industry. With a certain emphasis upon how to “save” Molycorp perhaps. The company might well need the help but there are better ways to deal with the DoD desire for a domestic rare earths supply system: even if I don’t end up being one of the beneficiaries.

    They had to try something, to keep their jobs and bondholders happy.

    This is the first inning. It reads more like a heist, than a restructuring, in my opinion.

    They may have had a viable offer that they rejected and the currency swaps may have been the nail for chapter 11. I agree it may be many months before the dust settles. Its all speculation at this point, but I don't see all monied interests rolling over.

  • markedtofuture by markedtofuture Mar 22, 2015 4:50 PM Flag

    1. What is $40-$50 Billion of unmined gold and silver worth?

    2. Do you think the institutional holders are going to sit tight for a tax write off or hire representation?

    3. Will the judge let the same management team continue to operate the company?

    4. Institutional shareholders will understand their shareholders market value dropped because we messed up some currency swaps and we won't do it again. We were going to hedge at $1350, but we had too much going on at the time?

    5. What happens if the judge sets aside the chapter 11 and installs a receiver management team?

    6. What happens if a major decides to buy Allied Nevada for $2.02 a share?
