  • Is The 'Oil Glut' A Myth? [View article]
    Putin has a plus 80% approval rating in Russia, from you know the guys that matter as they vote for him, and you call that skin of his teeth. Nothing you say is worth reading or noting.

  • China's Zijin Mining takes ~10% stake in Pretium Resources [View news story]
    I lost nearly half my capital with Pretium and will just file the shares in my bottom drawer and wait for high-tide.

    Hope the Chinese investors help to get things of the ground.

  • GOP Hearings On Climate Change May Threaten Entire Green Economy [View article]
    Except Canadian submarines, which recently had a new ruling on CO2 levels on their submarines, something like 9000 ppm, to protect the unborn babies of the pregnant submarinas on board.

    Robert, a correction. In the climategate emails Dr Phil Jones clearly stated that he doesn't know how to use Excel. So, maybe, it is because they - Global Warming Scientists - cannot use Excel that rubbish data gets published.

  • Pretium Resources: Huge Upside Even At The Current Gold Price [View article]
    I share your hatred of the Sierra Club inherited moneyed rich.

    That is why I think inheritance tax should be increased, to stop the dodos from the union between a rich man marrying a dumb blonde controlling vast fortunes afterwards.

    Simples.

  • Pretium Resources: Huge Upside Even At The Current Gold Price [View article]
    Saw today a news item that mentions how the central banks of Russia and China have increased their stockpile of gold this year.

    And we know that Western bankers call gold a barbarous relic.

  • Pretium Resources: Huge Upside Even At The Current Gold Price [View article]
    I have an issue with your table, in which you state that the deposit is worth 45billion. Two things, it is worth nothing while it is still in the ground, it only realises a value once a neat gold ingot is poured. Secondly, to get to the gold ingot stage you need to spend capex and opex. OK, you are going to say that is common sense.

    I have sat with governmental figures from various countries and when they look at value of the operation as represented in this case by the 45 billion, they calculate their cash take as 20 to 25% of 45 billion. And when the real tax revenue stream is less, the companies are accused of not paying the correct amount and fiddling the records.

    Your table is so misleading, especially as only half the factors determining the value are shown, and we can only hope that no BC bureaucrat ever sees it.

  • Ukraine Payment Sets Stage For A Winter Recovery At Gazprom [View article]
    I agree with your assesment and am happy to bank the dividends on my current investments. However, given the anti-Putin and Russian rhetoric from the USA I am very cautious about increasing my exposure to Russian stocks in general.

  • Bloomberg: Russia cuts forecast for Gazprom dividend as spending soars [View news story]
    I read a couple of articles on Bloomberg. This is the forecast of a civil servant that is safely ensconced in the Economics forecast unit of the Russian Ministry of Finance. He can forecast the price of gold, the price of oil, the amount of rain, to estimate the wheat crop, and various other things. He is a very clever chap and we should pay attention to what he says.

  • Pretium Resources: A Controversial Gold Project With A Lot Of Potential [View article]
    Yes, they have to list their interest if the write any reports that will be used and published in support of their geological resources and ore reserves statements. The Canadian reporting requirements are more onerous than the JORC compliant statements.
