K92 Mining is producing much more gold than planned


Company Announcement
Wednesday, March 1, 2017

K92 Mining Inc. is pleased to report that mining production has shown a steady ramp up over the last three months with ore tonnes mined being over 50 percent above budget in January while contained gold ounces were almost 20 percent above budget.

The company mined more than 8,000 ore tonnes by February 24 and is on target to achieve 10,000 tonnes by month end, which is 40 percent above February budget. The increased ore production is in part due to significant lower-grade ore being identified outside the planned ore envelope, which was identified by our ongoing grade-control program, highlighting the importance and success of this program. ...

Kremlin Adviser Reveals 'Cure for U.S. Aggression'

From TASS, Moscow
Friday, April 21, 2017

YALTA, Crimea, Russia -- The only way to stop the United States' aggression is to get rid of dollar addiction, a Kremlin advisor said on Friday.

"The more aggressive the Americans are the sooner they will see the final collapse of the dollar as the only way for the victims of American aggression to stop this aggression is to get rid of the dollar. As soon as we and China are through with the dollar, it will be the end of the United States' military might," Sergey Glazyev said in an interview with TASS.

Commenting on the policy of the new U.S. president, Glazyev noted that Donald Trump is doing what the ruling elite expects him to do.

"I had no illusions about him, that he will change the policy. First, America's aggressiveness in the world is rooted in the aspiration to preserve America’s hegemony in a situation when they have already ceded leadership in the economy to China," he said.

"The United States has no tools to make all others use the dollar other than a truncheon. That is why they are indulging in a hybrid war with the entire world to shift the burden on their debts onto other countries, to confine all to the dollar and weaken territories they cannot control." ...

ECB Can Help Banks, Not Governments After French Vote, Visco Says

By Francesco Canepa
Reuters
Saturday, April 22, 2017

The European Central Bank can supply cash to banks if Sunday's presidential vote in France roils markets but suppressing a rise in governments' borrowing costs would go beyond its remit, ECB policymaker Ignazio Visco said on Saturday.

Investors fear that a potential run-off between eurosceptic candidates Marine Le Pen and Jean-Luc Mélenchon would raise questions about France's future in the euro zone and the very survival of the euro.

This may in turn drive out bank deposits and push up borrowing costs, as measured by bond yields, for debt-laden governments such as Italy, as happened during the 2010-12 debt crisis.

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

USAGold's Mike Kosares writes today that smashes in the paper gold market are having less effect and the repulse of one this week may prove to be a "fractal event," something that gets noticed and emboldens buyers of real metal. While the paper market is controlling the price for the time being, Kosares adds, the physical market will win in the end, very possibly causing a quick transformation of the price, an explosion.

Even so, this isn't any reason to be less indignant about market rigging and the largely surreptitious interventions against gold by governments and central banks. For while gold, free markets, and transparent and limited government may win eventually, human lifespans are tightly limited, cheating and fraud are in the here and now, justice delayed is justice denied, and justice doesn't come about by itself. It arrives only through great struggle, and it will not arrive in time to do any good for many people who would like to have faith in it today. They will die unrewarded after many years of "buying opportunities."

Kosares' commentary is headlined "Past Few Days a Fractal Event for the Gold Market" and it's posted at USAGold here:

GoldSeek Radio's Chris Waltzek yesterday interviewed your secretary/treasurer about many of the details of the longstanding policy of Western governments to suppress the price of gold, policy that is documented in many places in government archives but remains a prohibited subject with mainstream financial news organizations.

America's renewed desire to escalate military tensions is a front for America's continual financial war, this time directed at North Korea, Syria, and possibly

Iran. This is likely to be the opinion of China's strategic advisors. We analyse the geopolitics and economics behind America's war strategy from China's perspective, concluding that it is entering its final phase. China's exit plan appears to be to tie the pricing of energy and then other major commodities to gold, returning to the pre-1971 status quo, when the dollar was just a settlement link between commodity prices and gold. Except this time, the dollar itself will be sidelined, so far as China is concerned, which will use the yuan instead for its empire, which will be far larger than that of the US in time, measured by GDP. ...

The U.S. Federal Reserve on Thursday fined Deutsche Bank $156.6 million for violating foreign exchange rules and running afoul of the Volcker Rule.

The German bank failed to detect and halt its traders from using chat rooms to communicate with competitors, the Fed said in a statement.

Central bank officials are "requiring the firm to cooperate in any investigation of the individuals involved in the conduct underlying the FX enforcement," according to the statement.

In a statement, the bank said, "we are pleased to resolve these civil enforcement matters with the Federal Reserve." ...
