Video: Precious Metals Becoming more Precious by the Day but Uranium could really go boom!

Corpoerate financier Jim Paterson states that precious metals have become even more precious due to the massive amount of money printing. The inflation we are going to suffer in the coming years is a direct result.

There's a good reason why the Tharisa share price has risen so much - if you want exposure to PGMs, then it's a buy

Private investors are often looking to buy into companies where the share price has fallen, rather than those which are near all time highs, but in some cases that is the opposite of what they should be doing!

Video: If Gold is a Ship, Silver is a Rocket

As an IT geek turned mining entrepreneur, John Lee of Silver Elephant Mining is talking his own book here.  He argues that everything in life is  probability-based, including gold and silver, and much hinges on the dollar. The dollar has recently broken down, which is great for metals, but if it resumes its uptrend, that would be tamper silver expectations.

Sylvania has been the perfect example of how investing in small mining companies can pay off long term - if you pick the right one!

I often see people saying that you can’t actually invest inshares in  AIM miners and the only way to play them is by trading the swings they have along the way.

Video: The Financial System is Starting to Crack & the bull case for Platinum

Analyst David H. Smith has a prediction to delight we loyal shareholders in Jubilee Metals (JLP). Nope, not Colin Bird’s resignation but almost as good is his view on the relationship between platinum and palladium and why the prices between them are currently inverted. Platinum being quite rare, it is usually more expensive than both gold and palladium. This trend seems to be in the process, he argues, of returning to normal. Good news.

All sorts of games are being played on Eurasia Mining - it remains a sell/avoid for me

Often pump and dumps only last a matter of a few days or even hours, but occasionally when it is more than just small private investors involved they can go on for a long period of time, and that certainly appears to have been the case with Eurasia Mining (EUA)...

Some crazy valuations are being given for Eurasia Mining - given its lack of reserves!

Eurasia Mining (EUA) is a company that I’ve been following for the past five years or so, but during that time, other than the occasional spike, the share price has done very little, and up until a few days ago you could have bought for around the same price as when I first covered it. The share price has more than tripled in the last few days though, to a current level of around 1.9p, following news that the company has engaged two large banks to help it assess the possibility of selling its assets and basically becoming a cash shell under AIM Rule 15...

Lonmin Might Still Be a Golden Opportunity Even After a Long Steady Share Rise

Hello Share Mates. Sometimes it pays to study the trend of a company, as well as its fundamentals. If a share has been overbought, there’s no reason why it cannot be further overbought. Indeed if there seems to be a bandwagon rolling, more investors are likely to climb on board. With that in mind, I suggest you might take a look at Lonmin (LMI), the gold and platinum miner...

Worried About Your Shares? Here's a Glittering Alternative and Probably Safer Way to Invest

Hello, Share Cats. Yesterday, I commended Centamin (CEY) to your further research. But I have to admit that buying shares in gold miners is not the safest way to invest in the glittery metal. For one thing, the production of the yellow stuff is notoriously difficult to predict. And Centamin saw a big share tumble last year when it announced that its quality of gold was not as high as hoped. But with world fears about a forthcoming recession growing, gold, silver and platinum remain useful fallback positions...

A Big Hole in South Africa Could Produce A Soaring Share for this Perky Miner

Hello Share Lovers. If you’re rich, your card case will be made from silver. If you’re super rich, like the villain in my latest horror novel, Black Snow, then it will be fashioned in platinum. How’s that for a crafty plug? Platinum is worth more than gold. And like gold, which is currently shy of its deserved value, there looks some catching up to be done regarding its price.

Silver to Outshine Gold In A Major Way

Fund manager Matt Geiger thinks we were in a consolidation period of this precious metals bull market for the past year. He doesn’t see much downside from here. It’s been a relatively healthy period for investors to get into the market. In terms of the gold price we are more likely to reach $1400 than to see $1200 again, he argues.

Sylvania Platinum looks to offer great long term value

As long as there is nothing fundamentally wrong with the company itself, then with any leveraged play on commodity prices, which is basically what many producers are, the time to be buying is when the price of the underlying commodity is near the bottom of a cycle. It is usually hard to judge exactly where the bottom is going to be but, when it comes to platinum, I think we are nearing that area.

Jubilee Platinum continues to make progress: BUY

Shares in Jubilee Platinum (JLP) have taken a bit of a battering in recent months, but I can still see plenty of upside here on any sort of positive reversal in platinum prices, and it is also worth remembering that other platinum group metals have been more robust.

Anglo American May Lead the March of the Miners

Hello Share Twiddlers. I’ve not looked at the giant miner Anglo American (AAL) for some years now. In general, mining companies have not inspired optimists like me over the last few years.

Gold, silver, & platinum a 3-5 year bull market lies ahead

Thom Calandra has learned with age that trying to predict where the world economy will go is often very difficult. The purchasing power of gold and real estate against paper currencies is a possible indicator. There is a compression of paper currency everywhere, and it’s difficult to see where the US dollar is going when it’s only trading against other paper. His ultimate insurance is to have plenty of metal stashed away. Against that background...

Lonmin is making progress towards recovery - buy

You may think I am mad in tipping Lonmin (LMI) but here goes. Platinum had a terrible year in 2015 when it’s price dropped by around 27% and now sits at just $850 an ounce. The precious metal had already seen a decline to below $1000/oz, but the drop in more recent months can at least in part be attributed to the Volkswagen scandal over emissions from its diesel cars being falsified – that news alone led to a 4% fall on the day it was announced back in September.

Earnings plunge at Pan African, shares to follow?

South African gold and platinum producer Pan African Resources (PAF) says it will now work to improve volume and grades in key operations after a 68% fall in attributable first-half earnings to £5.5 million. The company, quoted on AIM and in Johannesburg, saw turnover in the six months to December slide 19.5% to £68.1 million, while all-in costs on the gold side rose from $965 (£622) to $1,165 an ounce, the average gold selling price fell from $1,311 to $1,231 an ounce and the South African Rand weakened.

Eurasia prepares for production

As managing director of a company which has lost 99% of its stockmarket value in 18 years, Irish mining entrepreneur Christian Schaffalitzky is cheerfully upbeat about prospects as AIM dog Eurasia Mining (EUA) prepares to take its Urals Alluvial Platinum (UAP) project in western Russia into production, at long last, next year. The company, whose shares have crumbled from a 1996 float price of 310p to a barely visible 0.58p now, is also looking for partners to develop another, larger Russian palladium and platinum project at Kola, south of Murmansk near the Finnish border.

More than hot air at Amur Minerals

One western entrepreneur for whom there are compensations in Russian President Vladimir Putin’s forward policy in Ukraine is Robin Young, chief executive officer of AIM-quoted nickel play Amur Minerals (AMC). His company is expected shortly to produce significantly increased reserve figures for its Kun Manie project in Far East Russia, near the Chinese border. Political uncertainties and investors’ impatience have contributed to the fall in Amur’s shares. At 2.98p these are well off their 12-month high of 8.5p and a mortifying 90 per cent down from their 2006 float price of 33p, but the fall in the Russian rouble prompted by the Ukraine crisis has at least cut the estimated cost of securing a long-awaited production licence from $818,000 (£481,000) to $655,000.

Sylvania moots dividend payout as the pace quickens

Platinum mining in South Africa has been a decidedly challenging business of late, with a prolonged miners’ strike rising costs and weak prices combining to sap confidence at many companies.

Anglo American at 1,583p - now on my buy list

When I penned my observations on Anglos American (AAL) the mining giant last week, my favourable impression of the company and its shares was partly based on the assumption that the management would be disposing of its old, inefficient and troublesome platinum mines that have hung about the company’s neck like a ton of bricks. Now we have reports that the company plans to sell off three shafts in the Rustenburg area of South Africa, further confirming my ‘good value’ estimation at the then share price of 1514p. Last seen the Anglo American share price was 1583p; up 4.5% in about a week and intimating a further challenge to recent one year share price resistance, at just above 1600p (have a look).
