A2A with Brent Cook of Exploration Insights


With the mining shares already up 10% YTD and seemingly poised for a breakout, what a great time to pick the brain of the always-insightful Brent Cook of Exploration Insights.

First of all, here's a chart of the HUI index showing the pending breakout of the shares, in general:

Brent was extraordinarily generous with his time and expertise today so it would be impossible for me to list all of the specific companies and shares that we discussed. Instead, you're just going to have to listen to the entire program. And you won't be disappointed! You might actually learn a thing or two along the way!

Thanks again to Brent for all his efforts and we strongly encourage everyone with an interest in the sector to check out Brent's newsletter at https://www.explorationinsights.com

Tahoe (from ceo.ca)

"That ain't a falling knife, this is a falling knife"

Aug 25, 2017 - 11:51am


Rumor has it the higher court upheld the lower court's suspension of Tahoe production. That means Tahoe lost their appeal and continues to sit idle contrary to corporate optimism. There are some human rights issues that are possibly bigger than the miner appreciates.

Aug 25, 2017 - 11:44am

This morning's manipulation will not end

without the advent of a black swan event.

Who knows what it will be other than something very, very bad. Perhaps a market crash (will probably take most miners with it, at least temporarily), a major war threatening action on a global scale, a coupe against the US dollar by a new, gold-backed currency unleashed on the world by China and Russia (I don't see that happening in the very near future), a runaway crypto binge (doubt it, since I believe cryptos were something created by the banks). I've thought about a few others, like a pandemic but that could just as easily cause a rush for the 'safety' of US$.

Someone please tell me that there's something else.

Tahoe resources is getting killed again today!

Aug 25, 2017 - 11:15am

Removing that pre-mother crash from the scenario

there is every likelihood we would have closed the week above $1300. The sole purpose of that act was to ensure that it wouldn't happen and if another attempt was made later in the day, it could now be easily thwarted. It's a simple game really.... but we're playing at their table. Some day we're going to tip the entire thing upside down right in their laps and we'll find that they've been sitting there all the while without any pants on (and there won't be much to see).

Where's Maguire you ask? Preparing for his legendary

interview with Eric King....and what an interview he gave. But first, billions of King World News listeners contact us hourly and ask for recommendations on high quality trillion dollar equities in the gold and silver space. Today, we want to recommend Auryn Resources, run by two LEGENDS in the business with an impeccable background and track record in taking nuclear wastelands and turning them into solid GOLD. I am NOT recommending this stock because I am being paid a six figure sum to promote them, but rather because they are LEGENDS in the industry. LEGENDS that can be trusted with your MOOOOONNNEEEY. Now, baaaack to Andrew Maguire. King: "Andrew, what do you make of these smashes today in the gold and silver markets?" Maguire: "Eric, what's happening here is an ever slight of hand from the authorities to keep the price in the opaque, dark corners of the OTC market low while they keep the lid on a BOOMING physical demand from the Eastern Hemisphere. But Eric, they can't keep it up much longer...10-20 years tops. So, keep on accumulating physical, assuming you won't be in the ground before then." King: "So, you're calling for a price reset then? What will that look like Andrew?" Maguire: "Eric, the small specs are being washed out every day in the increasingly growing paper markets, while physical kilogram bars continue to be accumulated by stronger sovereign hands in the developing world. As a King World News exclusive, I've just received a 2500 ton order from Prince Akeem Joffer from Zamunda that will be filled soon and will destroy the LBMA, JP Morgan and HSBC. In fact, the Queen herself will be forced to flee to Antartica to hunker down with former Nazi henchmen." King: "Wow, what an exclusive for KING WORLD NEWS. I was led to believe Zamunda was a fictitious country created for the movie Coming to America, but you're telling us this country has the chance to end the Anglo American stranglehold on the markets?" Maguire: "Oh, shit Eric. I think I've been had - I didn't know this what the same country Eddie Murphy used to so cleverly entertain us with that 1980's hit, but let's assume for a second it's real. Can you imagine how the powers that be would be racing for the exits?" King: "I can Andrew - it would be spectacular! We'll check back with Andrew in the next year or two to see how this reset is going. Andrew, my LEGENDARY whistleblower and limey friend, thank you for joining us on KING WORLD NEWS." Maguire: "A pleasure as always Eric."

There, we're back to where we started from

prior to the flash crash.

So predictable but we couldn't be sure what was going to fall out of Mother's pie hole. That fat thumb sure did and it didn't end up costing him/they a dime.... if anything they've made a bunch. What a wonderful system!!!

Aug 25, 2017 - 10:45am

what unutterable horsecrap

After reviewing the kitco charts I have to call my chiropractor and my phrenologist to get the kinks out. $15 whipsaw on gold? Really !!? My wire just cleared SDB and yep, certain as rain in the jungle, gold did its inevitable drop.

My idea of the perfect podcast

Craig comes on, does his Mother impression, followed by barnyard sounds, oinks, whinnys, flushing sounds segued into Mother's pronouncements, sounds of people screaming on the roller coaster, elephants bellowing, calliope music in the background, you know, the typical sound effects of an insane asylum.

Bankers are out of control

They're losing it big time. These things never end well and the crooks need to be jailed.
