  • Castle Mountain Mining: A Hidden Gem With A Highly Favorable Risk-Reward Ratio  [View article]
    The mining district, at least its immediate surrounding property, is targeted to be included into a new Castle Mountains National Monument. That is a political risk. I'm not sure if the mining will still be allowed to happen if the monument is designated.
    This isolated mining district is located at the southern end of the Castle Mountains at the dead end of an access road going through the Mojave National Preserve with another dirt road branching off to connect to the town of Searchlight in Nevada. If the monument doesn't happen, I will wonder if the road going to town can be improved so as to make the mine more economically viable.

    The Chinese recession is putting economic pressure on the Sub- Saharan African countries at the present time. Chinese demand for African ores and oil is falling.
    By the same token, the countries without much of the way of ores and oil should be able to take advantage of the lower commodity prices. Cape Verde, The Gambia, Djibouti, Mauritius and Swaziland, to name a few, can possibly use the lower prices to encourage their industrial development.

    Some time has gone by.
    The price of commodities has gone down in that time. Sub- Saharan countries have been making their livings from commodities for the most part so far. Investors' holdings are bound to be affected by rumblings in the commodities markets. The IMF has taken a recent study about this new situation.

    More work is being done to integrate economic activities across West Africa. Some time needs to go by for the integration issues to be resolved. Success in this will tend to facilitate trade across national and linguistic barriers and will serve to spread prosperity across that part of the continent.
    External exports and imports give an idea about the investment potential of the region.

    Some time has gone by.
    Improvements have taken place over time in fighting the Ebola outbreak and the Gulf of Guinea piracy. Victory in solving these two negative realities will encourage commerce to expand along the maritime areas of West Africa.

    The port of Chabahar on the Gulf of Oman in southeastern Iran seems to have good prospects for future commerce. That's if the regional geopolitical situation becomes more benign and when the port becomes connected to the rail network serving the rest of the nation.
    Chabahar is across the border from the Baluchi port of Gwadar and faces the western Indian ports such as Mumbai.

    The river port of Dawei in southern Myanmar is being proposed to be the main transshipment hub between Thailand and Indochina to the east and India, Sri Lanka, the Persian Gulf and East Africa to the west.
    The infrastructure to support that idea will have to be built from scratch. Much of the surrounding area is still quite wild. A large scale project doesn't seem to be working out due to various difficulties. A smaller scale project might work to serve as the main trading center for southern Myanmar.
