    OK, I'll keep your skepticism in mind while I'll check to see if they actually produce anything within a couple of years.
    Niobium might be less scarce now than what was available some years ago. I'll check back later.

  • Why I Expect WTI To Go Back To $100 [View article]
    I think you have that correct, surplus.
    The Chinese must figure that since they were able to negotiate obtaining cheap oil from the Russians then why not from the Saudis? Keeping in mind that China has been the best customer for Saudi oil in the last decade, the Chinese must now be getting a volume discount from the Saudis.

    I'm less enthusiastic than I used to be about the mining projects in Australia, USA and Canada because they must be in the process of gradually pricing themselves out of the global market.
    But at least the related technologies keep improving in the meantime.

    It looks like the prospects for thorium energy development continue to improve. This trend ought to help to maintain the future value of the thorium- laced rare earth mines, all other considerations held equal.

  • Cracker Barrel Is A Cash Cow, Here's How To Milk It [View article]
    I've been to their store in Yuma just off of Interstate 8, the closest one to California. I enjoyed the visit. I thought at the time that they might be leery of expanding into California for various reasons but that they might consider building one at Thousand Palms near Palm Springs and Indio just off of Interstate 10 on an experimental basis to see what success that will bring. If successful, then they might consider expanding into the metro edge cities where there is still a lot of country character: Lancaster, Palmdale, Victorville, Banning, Hemet, Perris, Temecula, Santa Clarita, Norco, Bakersfield and so on.

    More American efforts are underway to increase Africa's electrical power production. Africa can concentrate on its business potential including its stock markets with the availability of more electricity.
    Power is no doubt one of the topics being discussed at the leadership summit and at business conferences.

    I keep reading positive news for Tasman Metals. They just need an adequate amount of capital to get things going for them.

  • Tasman Metals: At Just $1, This Is The Only Rare Earth Stock That I Am Buying [View article]
    According to Flinders Resources' website, both companies have chosen to concentrate on their respective mining goals; Tasman for rare earths, tungsten and possibly iron ore, Flinders for graphite. Perhaps they can set up a joint operating agreement sometime in the future.
    It looks like Flinders is closer to their production goals than Tasman is with theirs.
