    The only good news...

    “They moved more rock.”

    The above is definitely a positive declaration; now set aside the cynicism and look at it again.

    They are moving the rock to gain access to the gold/silver.

    Information shown below may be found on Silex home page or ASX website, (under SLX).

    Q2 production

    Hi Avram,

    I remember doing the numbers on Los Azules at time of McEwen take-over, (when the copper resource was smaller, much smaller) my calculations showed McEwen getting Los Azules for less than $.01 a pound for copper - and the gold and silver were thrown in for nothing...

    The recent sale of Peru's Las Bambas copper mine, by my calculations, resulted in a value of same of $.10 per pound.

    Taca Taca copper mine*, as a comparison, appears to be selling for $.03 a pound for copper - Considering future supply/demand, (with a reasonable analysis) the agreed upon price appears to be unreasonably low.

    *All reports read by this investor point to positive reforms in foreign investments in Argentina, after present government is replaced (next year).

    It’s evident, the only think we may agree upon is, “We agree that we disagree.” Beyond this one agreement, further discussion appears limited to repetitive comments,,, no thank you.

    I have 2 issues to address.

    #1) -If we are to continue this discussion, (or have future discussions) we will do so in a courteous, respectful manner; if not, I will end meaningful dialog with you. This means insults and name-calling, (by us - you or me) are not allowed to be part of the conversation.
    #2) – Look below, then look at my post and your response to same. I did not say, “Dumping real gold,” I said, “Dumping paper gold.” – And while we are on the subject of paper gold look at the COMEX Gold Report below, as reported, you will note 40.8 contracts for each ounce of gold; those numbers tell us that for every contract backed by physical gold there are an additional 39.8 contracts backed by paper gold hiding in the shadows, (or some place).

    EXCERPT FROM MY POST
    “3) – They are dumping paper gold at a loss to reduce the value and buying paper gold and physical gold from investors who relinquish their holdings in response to said dumping – This is the manipulation that has been addressed by you and many present/past readers/posters.”

    EXCERPT FROM YOUR POST
    “Why would anybody dump real gold at a loss to buy paper gold,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan are shorting gold and have been for a long time. They for the most part control the gold price anyway”
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    COMEX Gold Report – June 13, 2014
    381,060 current COMEX open interest contracts* = 38,106,000 ounces gold
    Total COMEX dealer inventory gold remains at 933,633.613 ounces gold
    The above translates to 40.8 open interest contracts for each ounce of COMEX dealer inventory gold.

    *1 contract = 100 ounces of gold

    Comex Fraud

    Hi Pio
    Regarding the Comex figures/numbers you are showing in your post:
    I’m assuming said numbers were extracted from latest Harvey Organ Report*. I’m also assuming your post will receive responses that deny the accuracy of said numbers. For a change of pace, I would ask those who object to your post and the figures/numbers you share, to provide figures/numbers, (including place of origin) that support their opinions - Insults and name-calling not accepted as substitutes for numbers.

    *Numbers retrieved from COMEX Report.

    It should be noted; Report mentioned above tells us:
    June 13, 2014
    381,060 current COMEX open interest contracts = 38,106,000 ounces gold
    Total COMEX dealer inventory gold remains at 933,633.613 ounces gold
    The above translates to 40.8 open interest contracts for each ounce of COMEX dealer inventory gold.

    Your post, with statements/questions numbered and answers below.

    1) - I think you might be hard pressed to prove Goldman Sachs is buying gold. 2) - I also think you are being gullible enough to believe to much of what you read. You may only find out later down the road just how misleading much of that stuff really proves to be. 3) - Do you really think that traders are dumping gold to take a loss? 4) - What kind of fools do you think they are. 5) - For the most part for many months up until now trading was the way to go if you expected to make money in this gold and silver market. And that may continue to prove true, we just have to see how robust this current movement proves to be. Too many times folks have gotten excited far too early and then had to back off and accept the fact that it was a false run. 6) - I think you might be reading too many comics these days.

    1) - The conflicting actions by Goldman Sachs were recent; if you are current with news you would be aware, if not google for articles, (you will find numerous).
    2) – My response to this was in my post, “Ignore much of what you are told, if it contradicts what you see.
    3) – They are dumping paper gold at a loss to reduce the value and buying paper gold and physical gold from investors who relinquish their holdings in response to said dumping – This is the manipulation that has been addressed by you and many present/past readers/posters.
    4) – IMO they are the worst kind of fools; white-collar criminals masquerading as self-proclaimed geniuses.
    5) - I believe you are referring to the current window of opportunity, (time between the date of RBY management’s announcement of production start and the date of production start). This combined with manipulation mentioned above has provided investors – And sadly some unscrupulous investors as well – with numerous methods of involvement in/with RBY.
    6) – Without straying from the present subject matter; some of what I read is definitely comical.

    With all due respect

    Sufficient information exists - This includes conflicting reports that include numbers that you are told to ignore, (by those mentioned in my post). Actions worthy of a closer look? See examples below.

    Think of supply and demand in markets outside of England and USA.
    Think of Central Banks and Nations buying gold.
    Think Goldman Sachs, telling you to sell gold, while they are buying same.
    Think multiple paper receipts held for each ounce of gold in warehouses.
    Think of ‘only’ one English trader recently found guilty of manipulating gold prices. Yes, only one.
    Think of ‘smart?’ traders dumping enormous amounts of gold and silver contracts, (at a loss) entirely too often to be considered a mere coincidence.
    The list goes on,,,

    Ignore much of what you are told, if it contradicts what you see.

  • The excerpt shown below, from Jesse's Café American, sums up problems faced by investors.

    If there is a break in the market, you will not see it coming from anything on the Comex, which has become an extended infomercial for quite a bit of what is wrong in the US markets and economy: lack of transparency, captured regulators, weak enforcement, unequal protections, insider trading, and institutionalized frauds and inefficiencies.

    And, like it or not, if you follow the advice given in information/news from those mentioned above, you too are part of the problem.

    Believe in yourself
    Believe in your investment decisions, (provided you have done needed research)

    Have a good weekend

    Johnny and Jaze owe Wolf Apology

    robey743 robey743 Jun 13, 2014 12:04 PM Flag

    Hi Bonanzagrade

    Regarding the subject matter of your post:
    Apologies are owed to all who visit this board. Most readers are seeking insight and/or information from those who post messages here, not insults and name calling.

  • Share price is being manipulated on the ASX (Australian Markets) and marketmakers here in the US are reacting to same - And the marketmakers could care less about what the declining share price does to our investment, volume of share sales is all they care about.

    Regardless of the short shareholders in Australia (and their obvious manipulation of share price) and US marketmakers actions that allow a continuation of the price decline, IMO this stock has one of the greatest potentials for share price growth. GLE (Global Laser Enrichment) will be issuing a press release any day – Perhaps today – on details of contract between themselves and DoE (Department of Energy). When that news release is released to the public it will be too late to ride the rocket ‘up’ when the share price explodes, because the rocket will be taking off as you read the article.

    Hi Mike
    Regarding the ‘people’ you are addressing; I believe you are being too kind. Said ‘people’ are in fact parasites, parasites feeding on their targeted hosts; hosts being the small investors you refer to.

    Parasites operate with the attitude and hope that investors will accept anything they post as being true and not trouble(?) themselves with verifying and/or checking information for facts. As is evident, parasite’s main tool is triggering the fear factor with negativity.

    What is truly sad is that more often than not said parasites are dumber than the investors they attack.

    As you say in your post, “Do your homework.” That is the one course of action that defeats and exposes the ‘bringers of negativity’…

    “A Streetwise Reports article includes RBY”
    Said drilling will be identifying and authenticating Inferred Resource for the purpose of moving it to Indicated Resource status. As you know, Inferred Resource has no value, (is only a ‘maybe’ or ‘might be there’); results of drilling being increased resource numbers = increased share value.
    While the above is true; there is always the possibility of additional discovery.

    Hi Pio
    I believe Jazenevd has a short position or put options. Needless to say, an investment in one or both identifies him as an investor that wants to see a lower share price.
    And needless to say, Jazenevd's verbal attacks on anyone sharing positive information and/or news implies fear of losing money on his investment.

    I overlooked your message, but, judging from the content,,,,?
    My mention of Russia selling US bonds, not gold, was due in part to the recent article quoting the Russian adviser’s remarks about US bonds and a reduction of US/Russian interaction and/or support of and with the US government. Additionally, Russia’s numerous comments (recent and past) about the importance of accumulating and holding physical gold encourages me to believe they (Russia) are not apt to sell their gold for needed funds, if they have other options.
    Defending your belief that Russia will sell their gold, (for needed funds) in lieu of selling US bonds implies that you believe Russia places a higher value on the US bonds. I find that laughable.
    You covered a number of other subjects in your post; name-calling, insults, circular logic/reasoning, the national and international financial upheavals, to name just a few. Webster’s Dictionary contains the one and only word needed for my response to you, (it defines you and your thought processes perfectly). Stupid…

    Just out of curiosity, if we were to pay 1% interest rate for standing National Debt; what is cost per day?
    United States National Debt –$17,500,000,000,000+
    (United States National Debt Per Person - $55, 000+/-)
    $17,500,000,000,000 x .01% = $175,000,000,000 / 365 days = $479,452,054.00
    $479,452,054.00 per day

    Treasury Report - Interest Expense Fiscal Year 2014
    $32,081,384,628.40 – Amount paid for month of May* - Compare to above

    *This should give readers some insight into the reason US debt is growing. This should also explain, in part, the growing weakness of the US dollar.

    The public is presently being told the U.S. financial crisis is now in the past, yet low Fed rates continue. It’s my understanding that the Fed low rates were initiated to help banks return to solvency, (or to become solvent) – The Fed low rates allows banks to make more money by allowing them to earn a higher margin between the rate at which they borrow and the rate at which they lend - According to the Fed, low rates continue for the sole purpose of promoting economic activity in the private sector.
