News from our sponsor Tier One Silver is starting to pick up as assay lab delays subside. TOS has been reaping the rewards of its aggressive 2021 drill program. In the latest report, they struck 384.6 g/t Silver Equivalent over 3 meters and 221.5 g/t AgEq over 5.5 meters. CEO Peter Dembicki said, “We are very pleased to confirm a fourth structural corridor target carrying high-grade silver, both on surface and at depth, through our drill program. We believe the grade and scalability of the Curibaya system to-date are impressive and warrant further drilling.” He commented that there is much more to come as “[Tier One Silver] is heading into the top of the ‘second inning'.”

Co-chair Ivan Bebek observed, “This is a very pivotal result. It’s a spectacular stage. There’s 5 more holes coming…”and each batch of holes has taught us something new and better about the project.” He expresses confidence that, “We're really close to something spectacular here, not just in silver, but there might be a porphyry” as well.

They both thanked Exploration SVP Dave Smithson and acknowledged his contributions for getting the project to its current level and wished him well, as he’s taking a well-deserved break from the industry. New Exploration SVP Christian Rios is a local with vast experience finding silver in Peru. He’s been deeply involved in the project and the transition will be seamless.

Expect more positive news from the company, as they are in good financial shape, with 5 more drill holes awaiting results. (We own shares)

We have interesting times ahead, and Darryl Schoon comes on the show to talk about this. Schoon saw the economic downfall coming when he wrote extensively on it back in 2007, and he discusses some of the outcomes that have come into play. Money is not what we initially thought it to be as we find ourselves in a credit-debt incident. Ultimately, change is inevitable, and it looks as if the economic situation is embarking on a downward spiral.

-In March 2007, Schoon wrote on surviving economic crises before the bottom of Wall Street fell out
-Essentially, he predicted the downfall of the economy
-Money turned out not to be what it was formerly thought of as—once the Federal Reserve got ahold of money, it became a credit-debt incident
-The bankruptcy of the United States will trigger the bankruptcy of the rest of the world Once you sweep away the separate sovereignties of this planet, humanity will be able to succeed
-They’re going to raise interest rates again because they have to

Trilogy Metals’ CEO Tony Giardini sat down with us for a sponsor update. He gave us an upbeat appraisal of the company’s latest developments. Trilogy recent struck 12% copper eq, “an extraordinary result.” Rising copper/gold/silver prices have increased the net present value of the Arctic project to over $2.7 billion. While inflation is affecting all mining concerns, Trilogy isn’t seeing much of an increase in its proposed capital expenditures. Trilogy is still among the lowest cost potential producers in the world with all-in cash costs of $0.98 of payable copper (current spot price is over $4). At present, the market seems oblivious to Trilogy’s rising value and vastly improved project economics. Tony believes that this won’t continue for much longer and sees a future re-rate as likely.

Additionally, the company recently upped its resource estimate of its Bornite Project. There’s over 6 billion of pounds of copper (indicated and inferred) so far. They’ve also upped their cobalt estimate to over 88 million pounds.

The company is increasing its outreach to local and indigenous peoples. The effort was slowed down by the global health concerns, but will soon kick into high gear.

With a planned 10,000-meter drill program budgeted at $28.8 million, Tony believes that 2022 will be a milestone year for Trilogy Metals.

-The second quarter of this year is only going to get rougher

These are trends that we’ve seen many times historically, and the percent gains for big cap sectors have been extraordinary. The future of gold looks promising as the markets continue to shift.

I have Brian Leni on the show to talk about gold and silver as we kick off 2022, and prices seem to be holding up well thus far. Some of the weakness exhibited in 2021 presents a turning point that is to come, and Leni is optimistic about the precious metals this year. As inflation impacts the economy and individuals hear about rate hikes, gold becomes more sought after. We also take time to discuss cryptocurrency as a threat to precious metals, as well as the future of currency in a rapidly advancing world.

-Gold and silver prices are holding up better
-Last year, Leni thought that things we’re going to get better, but there was a lot of weakness
-In 2021, a lot of money was put into the system and had to be shaken out, which makes 2022 promising
-When the economy is bad, people tend to flock to gold
-Leni is optimistic about the precious metals in 2022 and believes they will make a comeback
-Even if the rate hikes happen, the market isn’t going to take it well; it also becomes a political situation
-On both sides of the coin, gold looks attractive as rates go up and people see signs of inflation
-Cryptocurrencies largely impact the metals market; crypto is marketed very well
-A lot of investors avoided the gold market during the pandemic
-We’re headed towards a digital/crypto world, and it is only a matter of time before paper money is gone

As time goes on, it becomes more clear that the inflationary situation is already dire, and is only going to get worse. Here to speak on this is Peter Schiff, who sheds light on these circumstances. We got away with printing money for a bit because all of it went into the stock market, but it seems that the markets are overvalued and US stocks are not as valuable in an international context.

Can the Fed get us out of the mess they got us into? Here to speak on this is Octavio Marenzi, who thinks that we’re in for a rough ride in 2022; this will probably entail a stock market crash, and the Fed pouring money back into the market to save it. Wage and price controls will not necessarily be feasible in these circumstances, and it is difficult to predict exactly what is to come; we all become spectators in this situation. Tune in to hear more considerations about the future of inflation and how to prepare yourself.

-Marenzi thinks that the Fed will carry on doing what they’re doing until the market crashes, and start to pour money back into the market—it will be a very rough ride in 2022
-We will probably start to see a correction in 3-4 months
-The Biden administration is worried about inflation, and they are wary of industries hiking up prices. Inflation is going to be a huge political issue for them in 2022
-Inflation finds its way around price controls—people find other ways to trade
-The Fed will probably take the easiest past rather than the most effective one
-Price/wage controls won’t be very effective
-Nixon pointed out that we want to use problems to our political advantage—not necessarily solve them
-It’s smart to hold a larger cash balance at the moment, but this is still a risky strategy
-This monetary policy turns us all into speculators

Brad Heavey, an experienced real estate investor, comes on the show to talk about REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts). REITs are particularly beneficial because they provide a stabilized income stream. There are many categories of these trusts that all have different qualities and advantages, and a REIT with a diverse portfolio of properties is worth exploring, as it could have decent yields. These are low-risk areas to invest in, but they require research to find out what companies are stable and worth investing in. Tune in to hear more about how you can invest in REITs, and some of the best tips for entering this sector.

-A lot of people have decided to invest in REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts)
-When Brad Heavey became an appraiser, his niche was appraising multi-million dollar homes
-As a landlord, collecting rent from a tenant can present issues. The upside of being a landlord is real estate appreciation

With 'The Great Resignation' continuing and labor shortages in many industries this may be the year you ask for a raise. Employers in businesses big and small are desperate to attract, and more importantly, retain employees.

-“While this is the time to ask for a raise, in many ways the same rules apply with regard to how to go about doing it," says Business Management Expert and owner of Business Management Firm '7 Stage Advisors' in Butler, NJ Carl Gould (see short bio below). 
-Major chains like Chipotle and McDonald’s have been fast to provide higher pay and better perks while larger companies like Bank of America have raised analyst pay by 10-thousand dollars and the salaries of associates and vice presidents by 20-thousand dollars. 
-Tips to ask for a raise include eliminating any fear you might have about asking, making a list of your accomplishments on the job, making an appointment with the 'decision maker' and not the person who cannot make it happen, and preparing answers to any objections in advance.
Questions addressed:
• Why is this the year to ask for a raise?
• How can you prepare for the meeting?
• Why do you have the upper hand?
