  • The majority is never right. Never, I tell you! That’s one of these lies in society that no free and intelligent man can ever help rebelling against. Who are the people that make up the biggest proportion of the population — the intelligent ones or the fools? I think we can agree it’s the fools, no matter where you go in this world, it’s the fools that form the overwhelming majority - Henrik Ibsen.

  • The mainstream (corporate) media is nothing less than the unofficial accomplice of the banking crime syndicate which is running/ruining our markets and economies. Nowhere is this despicable relationship more apparent than in its deliberate efforts to grossly misinform investors on the critical subject of risk.

    Jeff Nielsen

  • The business of investing rationally becomes problematic when market participants are pursuing maximum nominal returns without a second thought as to the real (inflation-adjusted) value of those returns and the location of the savings.

  • Comparing the currencies is like picking the prettiest horse in the glue factory. The history of all fiat currencies shows they all end up being valueless. Gold’s nobody else’s liability and it has no counterparty risk. It’s provided protection against destruction of wealth for centuries and we’re at the cusp of another major chapter in its illustrious history.

Mining in South Africa

(Gold) Mining is (South) Africa misunderstood by most Investors

- updated April 6, 2013

goldreefshaftMining in South Africa: Anglogold closes Gold mine and sends miners home ! ...other mining companies close down the mines....The fact that mines are closed and miners are send home most of the time signals the end of the conflict. As a rule BEFORE Nelson Mandela was elected (1990's)  it happened often that  Gold Mine management FIRED all employees and replaced the work force with new and or returning workers. Returning home means that they loose all these priviledges  and their living conditions change (decrease) drastically.

 SA-Miners are a privileged group and they receive free housing, food, free education and free medical help for the whole family. Miners receive a token each time they go working in the mine. Because communication is so important in a dangerous mining environment and because there are about 28 dialects in South Africa newcomers had to learn FANAGALO (Chilapalapa in Zimbabwe) or the UNIVERSAL miners' language before they even were admitted to descent in a mine.

Gold, how it's made:

 

October 23, 2012: this is the same old scenario....

 Gold Fields Ltd. (GFI) fired 8,500 workers at a South African mine operated by the fourth-biggest producer of the metal after they failed to heed an ultimatum to abandon a strike and employers, and unions sought to reach a deal on pay. Workers dismissed from the KDC East mine may appeal, Willie Jacobsz, a spokesman for Gold Fields, said today by phone.

A spate of strikes that began in the platinum industry and spread to gold, chrome and iron-ore operations have hurt South African companies already grappling with rising costs and helped push up international prices for precious metals. Workers have walked out without heeding unions or laws on resolving disputes, prompting producers to issue threats to dismiss employees.

AngloGold Ashanti Ltd. (ANG), the biggest African producer of the metal, has issued a "final call" for all striking workers to return to their duties by midday tomorrow. Those who don't will be fired, the company said yesterday in a statement. AngloGold, which gets about a third of its production from South Africa, shut all of its sites in the country last month. The company and its peers improved a wage offer last week after unauthorized stoppages led to about a 40 percent drop in the nation's gold operations, hurting Africa's biggest economy. Strikes at AngloGold have entered their fifth week, with the company losing about 32,000 ounces a week, Chief Executive Officer Mark Cutifani said on a call with investors yesterday. Before the unrest, the company had expected to reduce the size of some mines within five years as resources were depleted, according to the CEO, who said that "areas that were marginal in the first place will be under extra scrutiny."
