This year ultimately signified the return to non-normalcy in economic terms, and I sit down with Jerry Robinson to discuss some of the great things and tough things that came out of 2021. We have seen that inflation has a large effect on how many stocks/investment sectors are performing; moreover, it’s more important than ever to invest in high quality assets and aim for diversification. Tune in for more on what to expect in 2022 and how to prepare.

-This year signified the return to non-normalcy
-It has been both a great year and a tough year
-The Fed recently doubled its taper
-It’s important to understand what exactly inflation is; it is not when a merchant chooses to raise prices
-When the inflation headlines began to accelerate, gold and silver failed to respond—which is quite surprising
-Tesla is a huge play on the future
-Crypto is probably not going to peak until Q1 or Q2
-Commodities will probably have more upside in 2022
-It’s important to invest in high quality assets
-We saw the largest intervention in 2021 due to fear of a financial collapse
-We’re seeing a lot of new investors—particularly people that have never witnessed a stock market crash
-Real estate is a great space to be in, and it’s especially good to have diversification of investments as we enter the new year
-If you can leverage an asset and get a cash flow that reacts to inflation, then the inflationary environment can be beneficial for you

To reflect on this past year and think about the future ahead, I have Robert Kientz on the show to discuss what’s happening and where we’re going from an economic standpoint. There’s few ideas about what the long-term consequences of inflation should be, but regardless of the persisting global health issues, we have been headed down this road for quite some time. There are a number of things to expect whether the health crisis gets resolved or not—tune in to hear more.

-Robert Kientz comes on the show to wrap up the year in terms of what’s happening and where we’re going
-The global health issues seem to be reaching a crescendo
-Many fiscal, budget, and spending limits have been removed
-There’s no thought anymore for what the long-term consequences should be, especially around inflation
-Only 50% of millennial that attend universities find jobs in their fields
-We have also started to ask where income really comes from
-Even though the pandemic largely affected the economic situation, we were already headed there anyways
-The Fed will have to choose between the beginning of the debt collapse or printing more
-You can protect yourself by not getting into too much debt and having assets
-If we move up one more percentage point, we will probably experience a big crash
-There are some winners in Bitcoin and the stock market, but most people aren’t winning

As the Fed balance sheet approaches $10 trillion, Rob Kirby and wonder how much higher this number will go. We sit down and discuss the US debt situation, which doesn’t look as if it’s going to improve any time soon. With the US Treasury increasing the debt limit and struggling to manage the circumstances, we are essentially living on borrowed money and time. Tune in for more insight.

-The Fed balance sheet is approaching $10 trillion—how much higher can it go? We’ll probably find out in the near future
-The US Treasury also increased the debt limit last week
-The Fed and the treasury may encounter difficulty issuing new debt, and the upcoming debt auctions will probably be messy affairs
-We’re living on borrowed money and time
-The debt problems in the Western world are getting worse as more money gets created
-Standards of living have improved, but at the cost of our future
-Debt jubilees have historically been a fixture within finance, but no one wants to talk about the inevitability of issues that arise with this
-Precious metals have been prevented through signaling trouble
-The price of Bitcoin surpassed Gold back in September of 2020, and still exceeds it today
-Cryptocurrencies now are doing what the metals would have done
-The manipulations we see in markets are a form of wage and price controls

When we experience things like inflation, people tend to try and live in the moment—enjoying time away from work and stimulus checks. This cannot last forever, and today I chat with John Rubino to discuss what these inflationary circumstances mean for the future. It seems that the stock market is precariously over-valued, and will probably not thrive in 2022; gold, on the other hand, does well in these circumstances. Digital assets are also becoming increasingly prominent, which causes us to question how we view wealth and assets in general. Tune in for more.

-During the Great Depression, especially in Paris, people started living in the moment rather than merely striving for success
-This attitude is cyclical in human society
-A lot of people don’t want to return to work after having been out of the workforce for so long
-The one part of inflation that may not be transitory is wages—they’ll inevitably go up
-The metaverse is definitely a trend for the coming year
-In these circumstances, gold goes up and stocks go down
-The stock market is precariously over-valued right now
-Stocks probably won’t have a great year in 2022, but gold does well in an inflationary environment
-Assets are going digital. According to Rubino, the people investing in digital assets right now already have their physical needs taken care of. When this becomes compromised, people start re-focusing on the real
-RV sales have also been setting records every month all 2021
-Booming RV sales used to be a crash signal
-Wage and price controls are also showing through with commodities

Simple things like day-to-day shopping trips make us aware of the fact that supply isn’t caught up with demand; worker shortages and inflation are increasingly changing many things for consumers and people.I sit down and chat with George Gammon to discuss these shifts that have historically altered the social order. Ultimately, we see that it is important to view wealth in terms of goods and services rather than in terms of tangible money where its value is constantly changing. Tune in for more.

-Many shelves are empty in Whole Foods; supply isn’t caught up with the general demand
-This is what happens as a result of lockdowns and people staying home—there are labor shortages, and this disrupts the supply chain
-This also causes prices of everyday goods to go up
-Ultimately, these effects make us more aware of the current state of the economy
-These types of changes in the past gave way to the dissolution of the nuclear family
-Inflation undermines the underpinnings of the social order
-People fail to realize that prices can also crash up
-It’s important to look at wealth as goods and services rather than just dollars
-Purchasing power is the ultimate arbiter of your true wealth
-Inflation also leads to reduction of the savings rate—there is less incentive to save
-People have different conceptions of wealth which creates disagreement around whether the government should distribute more money or not
-Wage and price controls are inevitable
-Price control appears to be the path of least resistance, especially in terms of politicians getting re-elected

A lot of people want to purchase homes, but don’t have the credit, or are possibly newly self-employed. I sit down and chat with Chris Prefontaine to look at an interesting variation of real estate investing that involves a rent-to-own approach. If you can’t buy now, this is a very effective way to get into the market. Tune in to hear more about what rent-to-own entails, and how you can easily get involved.

-A lot of people want to buy homes but don’t have the credit, are self employed, etc.
-Chris Prefontaine has been a real estate coach for 30 years and helps people figure out how to navigate through this process
-If you can’t buy now, it’s best to go through a solid rent-to-own program
-If you’re a buyer/investor make sure you’re going through an underwriting process at the beginning and have a mortgage plan ready
-You need to also have the buyer mentality
-With rent-to-own, buyers have to go through the qualification process, (the buyer may need credit repair, or may be self-employed)
-You enter the home as if you bought it, and you take care of repairs
-Prefontaine helped create a concept called “Three Pay Days”
-They schedule monthly principal payments with most deals
-If you’re brand new, the lease-purchase method is the way to start
-Prefontaine’s lease purchase agreements are already set up and only require a $10 deposit

Lawrence Leopard and I sit down to discuss things related to currency, inflation, and economy—which are fluctuating each day. We’re seeing digital money that sits alongside hard assets like gold, and the growth of unprecedented currencies that cause one to question the traditional notion of wealth and investing. Ultimately, we find that we are living amongst a broken monetary system that only becomes more complicated as time goes on. Tune in for more.

-Leopard is passionate about ‘honest money’ and hard assets—gold and silver
-Bitcoin is an important innovation
-The historic problem with creating electronic currency was the inability to control the supply
-We now have a scarce digital form of money that sits alongside gold; there is a place for both
-With Bitcoin the one crucial factor is not losing your key
-A lot of the coins have technological applications
-The world has never really seen a form of money with a hard cap
-Gold was the hardest form of money before Bitcoin came around—but even this asset gains supply annually
-From the perspective of economic historians, inflation has been occurring in phases for a long time
-More apparent recently has been the unavailability of products
-The pandemic has brought to light how broken the monetary system is
-Printing money does stimulate activity, but it also increases debt and inevitably leads to inflation
-The Fed is trapped, and may not be able to wriggle out of this trap
-Inflation benefits asset holders, but not the working or the common man
-Before 1913, there were no income taxes
-The average American suffers greatly in this system

What’s happening with the financial markets? Here to speak on this is Brad Williams, who sits down with me to discuss the current economic situation. In consideration of the inflationary circumstances, the economic downfall will occur when the Federal Reserve has to mirror the inflation rate with the cost of money. We’re experiencing hyper-leveraging while embarking upon uncharted waters—seeing higher government debt than ever before and low interest rates. Tune in to hear more on what’s to come.

-It has been a bit of a bloodbath on Wall Street
-It’s hard to find good income producing real estate at an attractive cap rate, but it’s still a leveraged investment
-Is inflation transitory or intransigent? It’s both
-As long as interest rates remain where they are now, the stock market is going to remain an attractive place to put your money
-The market/economy downfall will occur when the Federal Reserve has to mirror the inflation rate with the cost of money
-Hyper-leveraging will cause this downfall
-It’s important to stay ahead of inflation
-We’re in uncharted waters because we’ve never had the amount of government debt we’ve had now with very low interest rates and a Congress that spends frivolously
-We’re getting to the end-game—you can’t inflate anymore or raise rates to control inflation
-The Fed is in the business of supporting the stock markets and the large banks
-If we keep doing what we’re doing, other countries can look ahead and other factors will come into play that will change the dynamic of investing forever

There’s two sides to the debate about whether inflation is here to stay, and I talk to Jordan Roy-Byrne to hear his opinion on this topic. He points out that the market action we’ve been seeing alludes to the fact that inflation has peaked; long term rates have been coming down, bonds have rallied, and the metals are trading below their previous highs. We have to look at each year relative to the previous, so next year we may experience disinflation—where we still see inflation, but at a decreasing rate. Tune in for more.

-Is inflation here to stay? There’s two sides to this argument
-Natgas has come down, uranium has come up…what else is ahead?
-Long term rates have been coming down in recent months and bonds have rallied
-If you look at gold and silver, they’re trading well below their previous highs, and the same is true with the mining stocks
-Oil has probably peaked for the time being
-The market action screams that inflation has peaked
-Next year we may see disinflation
-Commodities have peaked as well
-Gold and silver have been correcting for 17 months now and remain pretty weak
-Every time the Fed has tapered in the last 7-8 years, real interest rates start to rise
-The picture in the coming months is not bullish for precious metals
-Inflation is here to stay, but it’s going to come down to a lower level next year
-They have to keep the whole system going—it would be catastrophic to let everything fail
-Each year is a comparison off of the previous one
-Oil and energy prices are big drivers
-We have to consider how long the Fed rate-hike cycle will last and what it will look like
-There is risk of a correction this coming year, but the market is not at risk of a crash just yet
-Precious metals take off when interest rates are higher

We’ve been experiencing some intense gyrations in the markets and hearing about how inflation is impacting particular markets. I interview Chris Vermeulen to further discuss this topic, and this phenomenon seems to have a large impact on the precious metals. We’re at an inflection point with the metals, and the whole sector has been out of favor for a year now. In the midst of the late stages of a stock market top, the precious metals start to out-perform other sectors. It also looks as if bonds and the US dollar could hold up pretty well. Listen in for more on what to expect in the markets.

-We’re seeing lots of crazy gyrations in the markets
-We’re being advised not to worry about inflation, but that it’s hear to stay
-We saw gold pop and take off—gold is a good play for inflation. Yet, this was short-lived
-The Fed said they don’t see anything outside of the norm—which everyone bought into
-They did also mention not being prepared for cyber-attacks on the financial industry
-We haven’t seen a huge crisis yet in cyber-security on a global scale
-We’re at an inflection point with the metals—the whole sector has been out of favor for a year
-Gold and miners are all putting in a major bottom
-We’re in the late stages of a stock market top, and this is when the precious metals start to out-perform other sectors
-Oil recently broke to the downside
-Bonds could hold up pretty well, and the US dollar has been holding up exceptionally well
-When there is fear, people move to the US dollar
-Hopefully things will fade back down in the next few years in terms of price

In the current economy, we’re seeing employee shortages within a number of important jobs that assist us in day-to-day life. Why is this happening, and what are the implications? I sit down and chat with Aaron Clarey to discuss some of the industries that are taking hits. It seems that we’re missing a generation of laborers; individuals of the current generation more frequently opt to get university degrees and take jobs that are outside the realm of hospitality and manual labor. Our economy is seeing major shifts as a result—tune in to hear more on this.

-Aaron Clarey had some major projects he finished this year, and he just built a house
-There are not a surplus of skilled laborers available for building houses
-Building a house requires that you know how to do many things on your own (i.e. wiring lights, installations, etc.)
-Many people are opting to work in other jobs outside of the realm of hospitality, manual labor, etc.
-We’re missing a generation of laborers
-The labor shortages are probably going to become more and more acute as time goes on, and we’ll have to learn to fend for ourselves to some degree
-Many people think that particular jobs are beneath them, especially if they have received a university education
-It has never been easier for an industrious person to move and find employment fairly quickly
-There’s not a lot to buy right now because many products are out of stock

Some of the employment shortages:
-Tire technicians
-AC repairmen
-Restaurant kitchen workers
-Skilled tradesmen
-Fast food workers
-Big box store employees

In the world of digital currency, NFTs are becoming both a popular and indispensable part of the blockchain. I interview Noble DraKoln, who has a firm idea of how NFTs function and why they are becoming so prominent. They are essentially a digital tracking mechanism for ideas, and NFTs allow you to display ownership of an asset on the blockchain. This contributes to the idea of the meta-verse, which DraKoln also explains. Tune in for more insight on cryptocurrency and the digital realm.

-NFTs are becoming a more and more popular and indispensable part of the blockchain
-NFTs represent showing ownership of an asset on the blockchain. The ownership can represent physical/digital items or ideas
-They are essentially a digital tracking mechanism for ideas
-Digital art has also become extremely valuable—a direct example of this is BEEPLE
-Everything going on in the NFT space has been documented
-The meta-verse already exists to some degree, but it emphasizes the idea of having a prominent digital life where you can make money within it
-DraKoln advices that if Bitcoin is cheap, buy it.
-Ethereum has already supplanted Bitcoin as the #1 winner in the marketplace, but in terms of appreciation potential it looks slightly different

The Fed seems to be doubling up on their tapering—but what is going on behind the scenes? I sit down and chat with John Rubino, who breaks down what is happening with inflation and how different economical components and markets are being affected. We’re seeing massively negative interest rates, and we’re merely dumping less dollars into the new market; buying government bonds with newly created currency. Additionally, we see gold as a barometer within the economy, and automobile companies/other commodities seem to be doing well in these conditions. Tune in for more.

The Fed is doubling up on their tapering
-They planned to buy fewer government bonds going forward (even though they still are)
-We are seeing massively negative interest rates
-They’re just dumping less dollars into the market going forward
-They’re buying government bonds with newly created currency
-Gold is the perfect barometer
-Used cars are going for more than they would new
-Car companies (and commodities in a similar boat) benefit from inflation
-Automobile inventories are getting more valuable
-This has been a great environment for the gold miners, but costs are inevitably rising
-Buying out houses and renting them out to the masses has been part of the inflationary play
-In any crisis, there are winners and losers; if you get ahead of the trends, you can be a winner
-Shorting something has unlimited risk—you have to get the timing right

FPX Nickel’s CEO Martin Turenne joined us for a sponsor update and to discuss the company’s new major nickel discovery at the Van Target. So far, each hole drilled has shown significant mineralization and there are more drill results on the way. They’ve scored some of the strongest nickel intercepts ever found in the Decar District. Their Baptiste Project is already the world's third largest undeveloped nickel project and as Martin has stated before, Van could be bigger, much bigger.

Like copper, the price of nickel has been strong. Supplies are diminishing, while demand has been increasing. Nickel is an essential component in EV batteries as well as production of stainless steel. Martin makes a compelling case that the political will now exists to exploit these much-needed resources. They’re essential for the furtherance of governments’ low carbon ambitions.

Presently, Indonesia is the Saudi Arabia of nickel and it's all going to China. It’s not clean nickel, which companies like Tesla are prioritizing. The West requires its own supplies and there’s no better place to start producing than in Canada. While global investors have been giving resource stocks the cold-shoulder, Martin is unperturbed and believes that the tide will soon turn. And he intends to see FPX take a leadership role in the sector’s resurgence.

Silver One Resources' CEO Greg Crowe came on for a sponsor update, to provide us with a recap of 2021's highlights and to lay out the path for 2022. Crowe believes that the current low silver prices have created a buying opportunity in Silver One's shares. Its present focus is at the flagship Candelaria, Nevada based project, where they intercepted 1,070 g/t Silver and 1.48 g/t Gold over 4.57 meters.The goal is to keep expanding the resource, as well as pursuing a potential porphyry deposit in another area of their property. He also has high hopes for i's two other projects, Cherokee and Phoenix. 


Silver One is well funded, with over CAD $9.3 million in their coffers, plus another cash installment due from the sale of their Mexican projects. Crowe left open the possibility of expanding the 2022 drill program which could require additional funding, but for a good cause. 

2022 could very well be the pivotal year for Silver One Resources and its efforts to restart the Silver State's richest mining district.

In our economy we’re dealing with intransigent inflation that doesn’t look like it’s going to disappear any time soon. I chat with global macro-economics expert, Gordon Long, to unpack some of these inflationary trends and discuss how we can better understand them. The global economy is slowing, and we’re experiencing crises as rates increase. Long points out how inflation ultimately turns things into assets that you never formally perceived as assets; essentially, there is potential in the unexpected. Tune in for more insight.

-Inflation is here to stay; we’re dealing with intransigent inflation. How do you make money during these inflationary times?
-The PPI numbers are at 9.6%
-The global economy is slowing
-Long is worried about a mass monetary mistake
-Every time we raise the rates, we experience another crisis
-As an investor, if you can go into debt with an income producing asset, you can come out higher
-Inflation turns things into assets that you never formally perceived as assets
-What else can you do to get ahead of stagflation and inflation? Long says it’s important to remember that we’re going to experience both inflation and deflation
-The focus shifts back and forth from inflation to deflation

When you have a valuable strategy, real estate investing can be extremely profitable—bringing in a revenue that can set you on the right track. I interview real estate investor and author Michael Bash to discuss the methods he has used to attain success in this industry; he largely attributes this success to re-zoning land in growing regions to build properties. Bash has a number of tips that can help you thrive in real estate investing, and you won’t want to miss them. Tune in to hear more.

-Some people see real estate investing as a gamble, but Bash sees it as profitable
-He started out by looking for land where he could build apartments and rent them out
-He put a down payment on a piece of land and re-zoned this area
-All that he initially invested was $15k total
-When trying to get a project approved it’s important to show people that it would benefit a community
-Bash is retired now but considers getting back into re-zoning
-Re-zoning industrial to residential is the best tactic
-All you need to do is check and see what cities are experiencing growth
-Re-zoning can take around 90 days in a small town, but in a may city you may wait 3 years
-Once the re-zoning is approved, your profit is exponential
-It is easiest to get land in small counties/cities re-zoned

There are a number of factors that contribute to the increase in gold prices, so I sit down and speak with Todd “Bubba” Horowitz to discuss some of the possible contributions to this phenomenon. The Fed’s decision to increase interest rates has played a large role in this, and so have the decrease in industrial production and the overall decline of currencies. Tune in to hear more about why this is happening, and what to expect in the near future.

-The Fed is going to increase rates on Wednesday most likely
-Typically a raise in interest rates isn’t the best thing for precious metals
-Energy is twice as much as it was a year ago
-Industrial production around the world is going down
-The protracted decline of the Euro also plays a role in this
-With crypto, people are showing that they don’t believe in the value of paper money anymore
-We’re starting to see increased M&A activity in the sector
-This year, 20 times more money went into the stock market than the last 20 years combined
-Gold is one of the steadiest assets, even with its ups and downs throughout history
-We are showing weakness, which is a concern in the short-term

The markets have been tumultuous in all aspects, and I catch up with Eric Hadik to dive further into this topic and evaluate the trends. In consideration of stock market trends, these markets haven’t necessarily followed what we would normally expect, and the timing of the fallouts have come as a surprise. We have an interesting year ahead that will probably defy the expectations, so tune in to hear more about what could possibly be in store.

-Markets have been tumultuous—stock markets, interest rates, oil, etc.
-The stock market has been in the news a lot recently; the most important thing is to understand the bigger picture/1-2 year outlook and where we are within that
-For many years, there has been a consistent 16 month cycle in the stock market as well as 8 month cycles, etc.
-Throughout 2021, Hadisk thought we would see an initial peak in the May/June timeframe and a more significant peak in January/February of 2022
-A lot of individual stocks have already set peaks and are in a drawn-out topping process
-In the peak of January and February, even the stronger stocks will turn down
-The fallouts aren’t necessarily surprising, but the timing of the fallouts are
-Hadisk tries to avoid analyzing one market with a correlation to another market
-Gold and silver have pulled back and are in the process of making secondary lows, and some correlation could potentially help them
-Strength in the dollar is one of the factors that is weighing on gold, especially in light of inflation
-What do we make of the highs/low with the metals and energy markets? This has been a recovery and then some from the wash-outs of early 2020
-We have an interesting year ahead of us that will probably go against the contrary expectations
-There could be equilibrium, but if rates go higher and inflation goes down there could be a reverberation
-If we don’t see expanding growth, traders will get disappointed by numbers that are status-quo
-Steady growth is seen as a negative based on future expectations

Looking to defer taxes while investing in a high growth area? I sit down and chat with Ashley Tison, who talks about benefits of investing in opportunity zones, which were created by the Tax Cut and Jobs Act in 2016 to spur economic investment into historically under-invested areas. The incentive is that you eliminate depreciation recapture and capital gain, and get to defer taxes on the gain until 2026. Tune in to hear more about the strategy behind opportunity zones and how you can effectively invest.

-Opportunity zones were created by the tax cut jobs act of 2016 to spur economic investment into historically under-invested areas
-There were 8700 of these across US territories
-You get to defer taxes on the gain until 2026
-There are also incentives after you’ve held it for ten years—you can take out the growth of this investment tax free
-You eliminate depreciation recapture and capital gain
-In turn you neg a negative interest loan from the government
-Opportunity zones are a great tool for generational wealth building
-You can’t defer after tax dollars or pre-income tax dollars
-It’s not about the gain you have now, it’s about the gain you think you’re going to have down the road

We sat down with sponsor Trillion Energy Corp’s CEO Arthur Halleran. He is very optimistic. Energy prices are escalating, especially in Europe and Asia, right in Trillion’s backyard. Revenues from their Cendere oil fields have increased dramatically and natural gas prices have risen from just under $6 per mcf to $10. The cost of production is quite low, hovering around $0.11 per mcf; the pay-off from the SASB field will be substantially higher than originally anticipated. While project financing has been drawn out, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Once the company is re-domiciled in Canada (US trading will be unaffected), Art assures us that financing will happen soon thereafter. Then wells will be spudded and that means that cash flow is within reach. All of which is great news for shareholders like us.   Tickers OTC: TCFF — CSE: TCF

Unless you complete your holiday shopping before Halloween, you might be enticed by Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. These tips may help you save time and money.

Beat the crowds. If you shop early in the season, items are more likely to be in stock and you may face fewer shipping delays. Sales often start well before Black Friday, so keep an eye out for special promotions at least a week or two ahead. Signing up for online or social media deal alerts can help. 

Research pricing. Knowing whether a deal is truly good can be tricky, but many websites and phone apps are available that can help you compare items and prices as you shop. 

Set up accounts. To complete purchases quickly, consider saving your information and shipping addresses on trusted online accounts with your favorite retailers. Make it a habit to search for promotional and coupon codes that you can use at checkout. Review shipping costs, too, to avoid paying more than you expect.

Track purchases. To help you stick with your budget, keep track of what you spend. If you're shopping with credit, try using one card for everything so you can quickly review your spending. A rewards card may give you cash back, points, or miles that you can redeem in the future, but watch out for high interest rates if you can't pay off the balance in full. 

Use cash. Consider using a debit card or cash for in-store purchases. Carrying only a predetermined amount of money in your wallet may help you avoid overspending.

Pay attention to the fine print. Retailers may have special policies in place for the holiday season. Knowing the time limits for exchanges or returns is especially important when you're shopping early. Ask for gift receipts and keep your own copies.

Watch out for exclusions. Promotional prices might be limited to certain items and may expire quickly, so understand the details. 

Look for price guarantees. If you buy an item that later goes on sale, some retailers will refund the difference within certain time limits. Retailers may also match a competitor's price on an identical item (you may need to provide proof of the purchase).

We were joined by sponsor Fury Gold Mines’ Chair Ivan Bebek and CEO Tim Clark to get the latest on the just announced sale of its Homestake Project to Dolly Varden Silver (TSX.V: DV). It’s a $50 million deal for which Fury gets CAD $5 million in cash and the balance in DV shares, along with two board seats. In the words of Clark, “…the combination of these two adjacent assets is very strong. Combining our Homestake Project with the DV Project creates an attractive opportunity to immediately establish shareholder value through the potential synergies that result from their regional proximity.” It’s been no secret that Chair Bebek had been looking to sell-off Homestake. He observed that these two projects were always meant to be together and that there’s huge upside potential for Fury, once DV begins executing on its plan.

In the meantime, Fury receives a substantial cash infusion, which when combined with a $2 million payment from Quebec, puts off their need to raise fresh capital. They can continue to focus upon their core projects, Committee Bay and Eau Claire. And for good reason too. Several days ago, Fury announced that they had drilled 13.93 g/t of Gold over a hefty 10 meters. These were the best drill results in five years. Clark sees this achievement as opening up substantial expansion opportunities and it confirms the thesis that Committee Bay represents a major gold exploration opportunity.

Most importantly for shareholders, the last week has seen company’s future value increased both by the drill bit and the Homestake sale, which gives Fury a dual opportunity for share price appreciation. (We own shares)
