Novo Resources – Answering A Wide Range Of Questions
Quinton Hennigh, President & Chairman of Novo Resources took some time today to answer a wide range of questions. We recap the news this week of an agreement signed with the Ngarluma Aboriginal Corporation then move into the exploration in the Pilbara region. We also get an update on Beatons Creek which has been off most investors radar of late.
Please keep the questions for Quinton coming. I can be reached at Fleck@kereport.com.
Inflation Strong But Commodities Under Pressure
Brien Lundin joins me today to share his thoughts on the inflation data from this week. PPI and CPI have been running over the Fed’s 2% target level for years. That might force the Fed to ramp up rate hikes but they have said they are ok with being behind the curve. We also touch on gold and copper and their inability to bounce.
Copper, Yield Curve, Gold, and US Markets
Rick Ackerman joins me with comments on the copper price, flattening of the yield curve, gold, and how Amazon impacts the the broad averages. Always looking for a top and why investors in a broad sense are going to get out of the markets the charts keep on pointing higher.
With no agenda, the Regressives (calling themselves “Progressives”) have resorted to the Blame Game as negative drama is all they have left.
Here’s a hoot! Hillary Clinton, obviously a co-star is attempting to get back to star status by headlining the upcoming Democratic Convention along with Elizabeth Warren and old time veteran Bernie Sanders.
I would certainly like your comments on our views expressed here. Best to all.
Why The S&P Is The One To Watch For The Gold Price
Jordan Roy-Byrne, founder and editor of The Daily Gold joins me today to share his thoughts on why gold investors need to watch the S&P more closely than the USD. These comments are also tied into a bigger picture look at where the PMs are heading to the end of the year.
Skeena Intersects 16.02 g/t Gold Over 12.25 Metres at Snip
Skeena Resources announced some more impressive drill results from the Snip Project today. Some great headline numbers of 16g/t over 12.25 meters while also another hole of 11.81 g/t over 12.20 meters. The stock is reacting well today (up over 12% right now) during an overall down day for the metals sector. I still believe that the stock has under-performed the ongoing very nice drill results from Snip.
Please let me know your thoughts on why until today the stock has been lagging the drill results and if you have any questions for the Skeena team when I chat to them next – Fleck@kereport.com.

…Here’s the news…
Vancouver, BC (July 11, 2018) Skeena Resources Limited (TSX.V: SKE, OTCQX: SKREF) (“Skeena” or the “Company”) is pleased to report additional assay results from the Phase II underground drilling program at the Company’s 100% owned Snip Gold Project (“Snip”) located in the Golden Triangle of British Columbia.
The Phase II drilling program totaling 11,000 metres is being performed from surface and underground utilizing two drill rigs. Building upon the data gathered from the Phase I campaign, the Phase II program is designed to expand newly modelled zones via widely spaced exploratory drill step outs, further delineate known mineralization in areas of low drilling density and validate the historical data in preparation for a maiden resource estimate at Snip. Reference mine sections are presented at the end of this release, and on the Company’s website.
Phase II Drilling Highlights:
16.02 g/t Au over 12.25 m (UG18-097)
11.81 g/t Au over 12.20 m (UG18-096)
18.90 g/t Au over 2.29 m (UG18-095)
5.26 g/t Au over 10.60 m (UG18-094)
5.23 g/t Au over 13.70 m (UG18-095)
Phase II Delineation Drilling Continues to Enhance Grades and Widths
The ongoing Phase II drilling on the Eastern Twin Zone continues to encounter gold grades and vein thicknesses which are significantly better than historical drilling programs. These improved results are in-part a result of a more comprehensive sampling protocol which does not rely on selective sampling and instead samples the entirety of the drillhole. The protocol is intended to provide a complete database to support economic analyses using current gold prices and modern cut-off grades.
A significant intercept in this zone includes 16.02 g/t Au over 12.25 m (UG18-097) hosted within a thicker mineralized envelope grading 12.37 g/t Au over 20.75 m. Continuity of the zone was further demonstrated 30 metres down-dip in UG18-096 which intersected 11.81 g/t Au over 12.20 m. The recent intercept in UG18-097 occurs only five metres down-dip of historical drill hole UG-1706 which returned assays of 36.8 g/t Au but over only 0.40 m, either because of incomplete and selective sampling or geological and grade variability within the same mineralized zone of interest.
Paul Geddes, Skeena’s VP of Exploration & Resource Development commented, “The Company’s short-term goal of releasing a maiden resource for Snip is underway and we continue to validate and upgrade resource confidence in areas of historically poorly delineated mineralization. The mindset of historic operators with respect to …read more
Potentially Escalating Trade Wars, Commodities Hit, and US Markets Generally Stronger
Yet again we had some news overnight about potential new tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods. This pushed markets down in Asia and is really hitting base metals. US markets are also down but to a much less extent. Chris and I chat about how these trade fears continue to dominate financial markets as well as some inflation data out of the US.

Tax Cuts Work – Deficits rise only because governments keep spending too much
The article below probably won’t surprise anyone but it does a great job of outlining why counties continue to pile up debt. Tax cuts can actually spur growth and bring in more money, the issue is governments end up spending more. It’s a vicious circle that does not seem to be ending.
… Here’s the full article…
Tax Cuts Work
Deficits rise only because governments keep spending too much
It happened again. Tax receipts soared in the United States after the recent tax cuts.
Although it will take a while for the full effect of the 2017 tax reform to kick in, U.S. state and local government tax revenue climbed to $350.2 billion in the first quarter of 2018, a rise of 5.8 percent compared with the same time period in 2017. Individual income tax collections had big gains for a second-straight quarter with a 12.8 percent increase to $107.4 billion in 2018’s first quarter.
But the evidence of the positive impact on growth, jobs, and wages of lower corporate taxes has been published in many studies over time. The example of more than 200 cases in 21 countries shows that tax cuts and expenditure reductions are much more effective in boosting growth and prosperity than increasing government spending.
Multiple studies conclude that in more than 170 cases, the impact of tax cuts has been much more positive for growth.
However, some commentators continue to deny the positive impact of tax cuts using the argument that deficits rise.
The fallacy that “deficits rise” has nothing to do with tax cuts, but with increases in government spending on top of the tax cuts.
The deficit excuse is very simple. It says taxes should not be cut because governments will spend all revenues, even if these increase, and more. But this excuse is wrong.
The mistake of pointing at deficits as proof that tax cuts don’t work is debunked by looking at the proposals of the same economists that argue against tax cuts. Economist Paul Krugman is one example. He argued against tax cuts in his New York Times article “Time to Borrow” after the Obama administration increased debt by $10 trillion. These demand-side economists defend deficit spending, yet consider tax cuts as negative … because deficits may increase. Only Keynesian economists manage to pull off such mindbending logic.
Deficits need not rise or exist at all if governments spend in line with revenue growth. And the evidence points to rising revenues from lower taxes and higher growth.
While analyzing the deficits of the G-20 economies during the past 15 years, we found that more than 80 percent come from higher spending. Even in the 2008–2010 crisis, European government deficits were explained more by the “stimulus” plans and government spending increases than any loss of revenues.
Spain, for example, lost 40 billion euros of tax revenues from the bursting of the real …read more

A Wait And See For Gold And Higher Levels For US Markets
Rick shares a recent gold trade where his subscribers got long but quickly got stopped out on. This now leads Rick to think there are still too many bulls and the market could benefit from a quick pullback. As for the S&P it is reaching close to a potential stopping point but if it can breakthrough watch out for new all time highs.
