Spreading the Fever
July 2005 by StaffOur staff recently introduced the entire student body at Twin Lakes Christian School in Aptos, California, to gold fever. More than a few seemed to catch it.
The idea of decisive action in 2014 will be at the heart of my presentation at the ICMJ Gold Prospecting and Mining Summit of April 5-6 in Placerville. I look forward to meeting you all then.
...we are beginning to believe that there is a Grinch out there who steals every rally away from the gold market! There is almost no other explanation for what is going on.
Historically, Montana has been an important gold producer, in terms of both lodes and placers, and it still produces gold for the prospector today.
The hoopla is over, the spectacular shows are just a memory. The fact is, we're stuck in the 2000s whether we like it or not! And the sad—or glad—reality is that changing the year's first number from a "one" to a "two" hasn't really changed anything other than giving us oldtimers some minor irritation now and then until we get used to things.
I know big mining companies use cyanide and other leach systems to recover gold from ore. Is this the only economically feasible way to recover the values?
The year 2004 feels much like the fabled month of March, entering like a lion, remaining stormy for much of the time, but exiting like a lamb. It is almost eerie how there has been a reduction of tension throughout the investment communities, both conventional and precious metals, in the past few weeks.
