A2A with Willem Middelkoop

59

Willem Middelkoop is an Amsterdam-based author and commodity fund manager. Somehow it had been over a year since we last spoke with Willem so we had plenty to discuss today. Please be sure to give this podcast a listen.

Among the topics addressed in this 49-minute call:

  • the current similarities to the run-up to The Financial Crisis in 2008
  • how the falling dollar is impacting commodities
  • why China values physical gold and the likelihood of a global reset in price
  • which commodities or metals might benefit from the changes described in his new book, "The Tesla Revolution"
  • the future of the euro and the possibility of it challenging the US dollar as global reserve currency
  • Willem's interest and opinion on the Australian mining sector, specifically Artemis and Novo Resources
  • And a whole lot more!

I'm confident you'll find this audio to be interesting and very helpful. Thanks again to Willem for sharing his time and expertise.

Thanks guys, good look at the one flaw the communist promoters always fail to disclose or see, the people on top always live well, while the workers live in poverty JW. And the ppt is well on its way to 25000 on the Dow you described in you article turd, but at what cost to the future.

Novo warrants

AKAIK all warrants were issued by private placement and not listed on the exchange.

Sealevels falling?

Well, maybe in the last two year. But since 1995 the rate of change is 3.4 mm up. It actually is on the raise since 1870 https://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/sea-level/

Novo Warrants

Please Sir, can I have some more

Apparently we got a nice dose of good gold news in the price spikes. If there was ever a perfect overlay of the JPY dropping like a rock while gold and silver spike, this was it The equally fierce but opposite direction of PMs and JPY is a wonder to watch in action. But there's nothing to see here.

No correlation. Riiiiiiiight.

And Mother-half a word-Yellen doesn't wear purple knickers.

With the inflation running a bit faster than expected, when gold takes a big sniff of that action it'll be running high like a scalded dog. Better that gold sniffs inflation than Janet's drawers.

Maybe, just maybe, gold and silver will move higher on good news and not on bad news that the world's wheels are falling off. It'd be nice to catch a break for once

Novo gold or Wits 2.0

Check for an overview at: https://secure.kaiserresearch.com/s2/Education.asp?ReportID=804185

Eric Sprott also did a deal with De Grey Mining, located north of Purdy's reward.

I have read the story as well for this uranium search in which a cross section of the drillhole contained signicant amounts of gold. But as always: this might be an abnormality and doesn't mean it is economical to build a mine. However with the current wits 2.0 theory this becomes a very interesting piece of the puzzle.

How long will it take?

For them to reverse this morning's spike?

Why is gold soaring

...like it is right now? Did Janet let out a sneaky fart or something?

Super Nova

What a great conversation about Nova!

Our geologist went to see the gold discovery to see if for real. He said this is for real.

The only question is how big will this gold discovery be? Will it be big or huge?

I think we are at the start of an amazing gold rush in Australia.

We are still waiting for drill results but everything points to a major major gold discovery.

It will get very interesting very soon.

Eric can hire the best experts in the world and the more Eric looks into this story the more convinced he is that it is real and the more money he is putting into it.

We put 20% of our fund's portfolio into this play.

Holy Moly! Thank you Turd for providing us with access to such information.

Anyone know more about the 1971 drill hole he referred to 60 kilometers south of Purdy's Reward that at 1700 meters down found the same conglomerate bands and produced double digit gold?

Nova better than Artemis? but probably best to own both? any other good plays?
