Default Three Junior Potash Developers Are Sitting on Big Assets

Three Junior Potash Developers Are Sitting on Big Assets

Richard (Rick) Mills
Ahead of the Herd

The United Nations estimates that the world’s population will reach 7.7 billion by 2020 and 9.3 billion in 2050. Another United Nations estimate says that only 30% of the arable land in use in the 1950’s will be available per person in 2050.

“Just when we need more soil to feed the 10 billion people of the future, we’ll actually have less—only a quarter of an acre of cropland per person in 2050, versus the half-acre we use today on the most efficient farms.” David Montgomery, author of the 2007 book Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations

Fertilizers are going to become increasingly important to improve crop yields.

Default Dajin – Lithium, Potash and Gold

Richard (Rick) Mills
Ahead of the Herd

The Puna plateau sits at an elevation of 4,000m, stretches for 1800 km along the Central Andes and attains a width of 350–400 km. The Puna covers a portion of Argentina, Chile and Bolivia and hosts an estimated 70 - 80% of global lithium brine reserves.

The evaporate mineral deposits on the plateau - which may contain potash, lithium and boron - are formed by intense evaporation under hot, dry and windy conditions in an endorheic basin - endorheic basins are closed drainage basins that retain water and allow no outflow - precipitation and inflow water from the surrounding mountains only leaves the system by evaporation and seepage. The surface of such a basin is typically occupied by a salt lake or salt pan. Most of these salt lakes - called salars - contain brines which are capable of providing more than one potentially economic product.

Default Great Panther Silver

Richard (Rick) Mills
Ahead of the Herd

The silver/gold vein systems of the Veta Madre at Guanajuato were discovered as early as 1548. At their peak of production in the 18th century these systems were responsible for one third of the world’s silver output. Today the Guanajuato area and its prolific, high grade silver/gold vein systems are still one of the most prolific silver producing regions of the world.

Default Junior Supernova’s

Richard (Rick) Mills
Ahead of the Herd

Recently I have been reading and hearing about a commodities bubble. I disagree with the idea of commodities being in a bubble - some may occasionally become overbought and correct. Occasionally we will see profit taking and nervous nellies selling on the backs of the various naysayers. But what some are calling bubbles is simply demand outpacing supply.

Default Kootenay Gold – The Best of Both Worlds

Richard (Rick) Mills
Ahead of the Herd

Without internally generated positive cash flow our juniors are money-eating machines constantly having to go to the market to raise capital through equity offerings.

However there are companies doing things a little different than the mainstream junior - they’re called “Project Generators.” Project generators, after finding and securing a property, do the initial mapping, sampling and maybe a small drill program. Upon making a discovery, basically finding something of interest, they turn it over to a joint venture partner who puts up the money and or its own shares to earn into the property while investigating the discovery.

Default Copper’s Talking, Are You Listening?

Richard (Rick) Mills
Ahead of the Herd

Sumitomo Metal Mining Co. said copper ore mined from Chile, and shipped to Indonesia, will be in short supply for at least the next five years.

Antofagasta Plc, which owns three Chilean mines, said a scarcity will persist for “the foreseeable future.”

BHP Billiton Ltd. said production from Escondida in Chile, the world’s biggest copper mine, will drop as much as 10 percent in 2011because of lower ore grades.

Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc. said it plans to defer some output at its Grasberg mine (the world’s second largest mine) in Indonesia. Citing safety reasons Freeport will forego the mining of about 130 million pounds of copper through 2014.

Default Altair Ventures Inc. TSX.V – AVX

Medley Global Advisors said October 19th that the US Federal Reserve will create $500 billion over the next 6 months.

"Whenever you print money, people look for a refuge – gold.” Jim Rogers, author and famed money manager

Using history as our guide we know that the greatest leverage to rising precious metal prices, the most profitable rewarding way to get involved in precious metals, is to own the shares of junior precious metal companies. And in this authors opinion the best time to get involved with a junior resource company is when it’s in the post discovery resource definition stage.

Default Spanish Mountain, Likely BC’s Premier Gold Discovery

Richard (Rick) Mills
Ahead of the Herd

In this article I’m going to re-introduce an exceptionally well managed junior that I believe is truly undervalued at today’s gold price. This junior offers exceptional blue sky exploration upside and has to be, in my opinion, on the radar screens of major gold mining companies for possible acquisition.
