James (Farfel@Kinross) ID#252150:
I probably was premature in my assessment of the merger. Actually it was only last week that K started to underperform, I was actually up around 30% when I sold It. My prior knowledge of AMAX goes back over a year, when I owned Bema, who jointly own Refugio with AMAX. That mine has always lost money & is a very high cost producer. AMAX has probably written off some poor performing properties since then & significantly reduced theit cost per oz. I would still be very leery of the new Co. because AMAX's second best producing mine is in Russia. With all the graft & corruption that goes on I don't think you rely to heavily on it for cash flow, & there is always the possibility of a change in Gov't, which may very well nationalize everything.

Former President Carter opposes bombing Iraq


DURHAM, N.C. ( AP ) - Former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday Iraq's people have seen enough misery under Saddam Hussein without the United States adding to it with a bombing attack.

``I just hope we can avoid a policy of the United States that would bring more suffering and devastation on the people of Iraq. They have already suffered under a dictator,'' Carter said.

Preacher (The Markets) ID#227290:
Folks,
I enjoy my daily fix of Ziva. Today was a little bit much, but there seems to be several quadruplicate and more postings this evening.
Ziva, love ya', Baby. But you lost me yesterrday with the UFO angle.

Back to the markets. A few weeks ago I wrote that it appeared that ( 1 ) gold had bottomed, ( 2 ) the dollar had peaked, ( 3 ) the T-bonds had peaked, and ( 4 ) the Dow looked ready to make a run at new highs over the next few weeks.

Nothing has changed except that the Dow has now made its new high. This is extrenely bullish for common stocks, in my view. Both the Industrials and the Tramsports have confirmed new highs, despite all the problems in the world and in Washington.

Evidently the New York market is the only game in town.

It looks to me like, after treading water for six months and now breaking to new highs, that the Dow is ready to go a good bit higher still.

Gold looks to be in a consolidation. Give it a couple of weeks and then I think we'll see more upside action.

The dollar is stuck in no-man's-land right now., I can't make a good guess as to its next move, although once something has topped, it normally goes down. So that is my bet.

The bonds don't look like they want to do anything except fall,

As for gold stocks, in the small, Canadian stocks, which I play, we are now in a situation where at least some are rising occasionally. The trick right now is to sell those that are rising and plow the money back into others that are still stuck on the bottom -- ten to twenty cents, Canadian.

As for gold, the drawdown in warehouse stocks looks very similar to what we've seen in silver. I think the time is drawing near for much higher prices. Just give it a little time, yet.

Peace, love, and happiness.

Hey Heavy:

There is lots of resistance here to Ziza's egotistical postings of 7000+ words even if they do only occur in triplicate once per day. For my part once per year would be more than enough. You seem to agree as you lamented her overuse of bandwidth a little while ago, yourself.

So ( according to her ) thousands or maybe even millions of people now know at length about how you are crapping and pissing in your pants about your investments. We all know this now. This seems to be the only message in your own numerous posts ( which also seem to come too often in triplicate ) . Your posts do nothing to inform us about anything else. You seem to think that being persuasive and open about this is going to influence the markets somehow. Please believe me...they never have, and they never will.

Since you have evidently little else to say, please consider the option of saying less ( and less often ) . Please do not take this as a personal attack. I have already stated days ago that we are all in your debt simply for drawing our attention to the LaRouche site. For this we thank you. But we have listened to your foolish trembling long enough now. Please consider our debt to you repaid in full!

Thanking you for your support...etc.......

JTF (Saddam Hussein to be toppled - at last?) ID#57232:
sharefin: I also read somewhere that anti-Saddam forces were ready to wrest control from Saddam if the US does the 'right things' whatever they are. Toppling Saddam would probably push the DOW to 10,000 by year end, if this is pulled off without 'a hitch'. I am sceptical, as how many resistance fighters are left after the fiasco with the Kurds, when our own CIA failed to back them up at a critical moment. And -- if Turkey marches into Baghdad, that might be almost as disruptive as Israel bombing Baghdad.

Interesting times -- with many crosspurposes -- crosscurrents. Who knows what will happen?

farfel (@JAMES RE: 18:44...KINROSS-AMAX MERGER. IT IS TRULY BRILLIANT!) ID#28585:
James, I suggest you re-read the earlier articles on the merger...you are obviously missing some of the finer points.

One reason Kinross lagged the XAU over the past month is that it has always been considered a possible prowler producer looking for a target. In other words, because of its enormous cash position, most gold analysts suspected ( rightfully so ) that Kinross might make an acquisition at any moment. They have been fearful to invest in the company because of the fear that share dilution would cause negative effects on the stock value.

As it turns out, Kinross did make an acquisition...and A BRILLIANT ONE!
Today, the stock market supported that fact in that Kinross stock did not fall a dime.

Why so brilliant? Because Cyprus Amax is paying off virtually the entire debt in Amax Gold in exchange for Kinross stock as part of the deal.

With zero debt in the company, Amax is, in effect, transformed overnight from a high cost producer into a low cost producer ( average cost: 180 an ounce to extract ore ) .

Moreover, Kinross is only providing .8 Kinross share per Amax share to the rest of the Amax shareholders. This is nowhere near as dilutive as most mergers tend to be.

Some Amax shareholders are already furious and feel that Kinross is stealing the company. However, they should not be unhappy. Admittedly, it is not the most lucrative deal for them initially. However, since they will ultimately receive Kinross stock, they will receive the benefits of the merger in no time at all...not the least of which is a company management that is as shrewd and canny as they come. Moreover, many gold pundits already believe that Kinross itself will become a merger target within the next year.

They are probably right.

All: New post from Washington Weekly -

'D.C. Police silent on murder of Former White House Intern'

http://www.federal.com/feb09-98/Story01.html

There is hope for American Democracy after all -- the Internet Strikes again! Government coverups have been suspected for years, but now with the Internet, suspicious activities can be displayed for the truth eventually to come out. I am not saying that Internet news is accurate -- but it is probably no more inaccurate than the stuff we read in the papers or get on the radio/TV.

I also learned that there are now 4 ( repeat 4 ) AFIP forensic pathologists who now claim that Ron Brown's ( un ) autopsy was bungled ( putting it nicely ) , and key x-rays somehow lost ( very rare occurrence for AFIP ) . Given the stellar reputation of the AFIP, and their reputation for telling the truth, I believe them, not the 'official' story.

Finally, I learned tonight the Christopher Ruddy has photos on the net of Ron Brown's aircraft that crashed ( Bosnia? ) . The photos clearly show that the tail of the plane remained intact, and one Nurse/Stwardess could very well have survived -- apparently long enough to be rescued. Mysteriously, she died suddenly enroute to a hospital. Also, according to Chris Ruddy's AFIP connection, Ron Brown's significant injuries only consisted of a survivable fractured pelvis, and a mysterious nearly perfectly 'hole' on the top of his head, having fine bone fractures consistent with an entering projectile.

I now understand why K. Starr's investigation is so difficult, and why he needs support from the public and the news media. If you take all the circumstantial evidence seriously, you conclude that there is a group of powerful individuals in our government who will stop at nothing to achieve their ends. BC may not even be aware of their activities. But -- if there is such an organization, I wonder how mlong he would last if his usefulness were to end. I can only hope that the tide is turning these individuals before it is to late for our democratic system. At least we are not in the same situation yet that Russia is in -- so there is still hope that we can cleanse ourselves of this corruption. And -- just like in one of those Robert Ludlum novels, if the above does turn out to be true, I hope all of this never becomes public knowledge.

Needs to happen so that people feel safe bidding more later. People will look back at this and say 'SUPPORT LEVEL'. This is not crisis time yet so we are seeing a typical market in action.

sharefin (More War) ID#284255:
Russia Threatens to Arm Baghdad
But will Saddam Remain in Power?

According to a report on Tuesday in the online edition of the Egyptian
newspaper Al-sha'b, the Russian government has warned Washington that
Russia will supply arms and humanitarian aid to Iraq if the United States
chooses to abandon diplomatic efforts and attacks Iraq. Al-Sha'b reported
that Baghdad requested 20 billion dollars in urgent military and
humanitarian aid from Russia. Baghdad, which already owes Russia 80
billion dollars, hopes to be able to pay off its debt once sanctions are
lifted. Al-Sha'b went on to report that Washington has monitored
heightened states of alert and increased military preparedness throughout
the Middle East, and has warned neighboring Arab states against providing
Iraq with military support.

If the Egyptian report is factual, then Russia has just moved even closer
to confrontation with the United States. Its previous threats of world war
are clearly not credible. Sending aid to Iraq is, on the other hand, quite
credible and therefore is in many ways more dangerous. The question is,
will Hussein be there after the U.S. attack to receive the arms?

We have noticed a curious juxtaposition of official U.S. statements on the
crisis in Iraq with the emerging balance of U.S. forces in the region,
suggesting that Washington may be expecting an Iraqi coup d'etat. U.S.
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright testified before the Senate on
Tuesday that, in the event U.S. air strikes contributed to toppling Saddam
Hussein, it would create a situation which, for a time, would require the
presence of troops. The United States has accelerated its deployment of
ground troops to the region. Three thousand troops from Ft. Stewart are
being deployed to reinforce the 1,500 U.S. ground troops already in Kuwait.
The USS Tarawa and the USS Guam, amphibious assault ships each carrying a
2,000-man Marine Expeditionary Unit, are headed for the Persian Gulf.
Other U.S. ground forces in the region include 6,000 soldiers at the Prince
Sultan Air Base in Saudi Arabia and 10,000 soldiers engaged in military
exercises in Egypt.

Additionally, the list of potential U.S. targets has grown from suspected
chemical and biological agent sites to include command and control
installations, the Iraqi air force, and the Republican Guard. This
suggests a decapitation strike, aimed at disrupting Hussein's capability to
coordinate a defense of his hold on power.

Iraqi opposition forces also appear to be preparing for an altered post-air
strike environment. The rival Kurdish Democratic Party and Patriotic Union
of Kurdestan are planning a meeting on February 12 to settle outstanding
differences and stabilize their cease-fire. Iraqi Kurdestan's Conservative
Party public relations officer, Aram Muhammad Sa'id, declared in an
interview on Monday with the Iranian News Agency that Turkey's latest entry
into northern Iraq had the green light from the United States, and was
part of a U.S. plan to use air strikes to topple Hussein and dismember
Iraq. Finally, the Iraqi National Congress has reported that Baath Party
and military officials have begun evacuating southern Iraq, lest an
uprising follow U.S. air strikes.

Many in the U.S. Congress have asserted the need for an end game that
removes Saddam Hussein from power, but thus far the U.S. has been unable to
foment or coordinate an overthrow of Hussein. If it is to be successful,
we will not know for certain about a coup plot's existence until it is
underway. But circumstances do hint that something may be in the works.
Baghdad has evidently noticed this, as Iraqi Foreign Minister Saeed al-
Sahhaf asserted on Tuesday that the U.S. would fail to topple the Iraqi
regime, since Hussein had the support of the Iraqi people.

The question is this: is there a real possibility of a coup in Baghdad or
is this part of U.S. psychological warfare against Iraq? In a way, the
possibility of a coup is more reasonable an explanation for U.S. behavior
than the idea that the U.S. is going to mount an air campaign against
chemical and biological weapons. What is not clear is whether a coup has a
real chance or whether this is just wishful thinking on the part of the
United States. And it is not clear what Russia would do if the coup turned
into a protracted internal struggle.

Ex-U.S. presidents, policymakers back IMF funding

WASHINGTON ( Reuters ) - A coalition of business leaders, policymakers and ex-presidents will launch a media campaign on Wednesday urging Congress to approve ******huge******* payments to the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations.

The campaign -- the largest and most public so far by IMF supporters -- will begin with full-page advertisements in the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call.

The advertisements will urge members of ******Congress to approve $18 billion for the IMF and to pay back dues to the United Nations,******* organizers said. They will also warn that the financial crisis in Asia could cut U.S. growth and leave a trade deficit as high as $300 billion.

*********************
The coalition has more than 150 supporters, including former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford; former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger, Alexander Haig and Warren Christopher; and former Treasury Secretaries Douglas Dillon, Henry Fowler, Michael Blumenthal and Lloyd Bentsen.
*****************

The majority of the U.S. population support the U.N. and international involvement generally, said Peter Peterson, chairman of the investment banking firm, Blackstone Group, one of the campaign's organizers.

In addition to supporting IMF funding, Peterson said the coalition would urge *******Congress not to curb access******* to Treasury's Exchange Stabilization Fund.

The Treasury Department used the fund to bail out Mexico in 1995 and says it will tap the fund again if it needs money to pay the U.S. share of last year's international rescue deals for Indonesia and South Korea.

Legislation by Rep. Bernard Sanders, ***an independent from Vermont,*** would prohibit the administration from using more than $250 million from the fund without congressional approval.

If it is bandwidth you are concerned about, charge money to belong to this discussion group. I would pay. It might be the cover charge necessary to remove a few wannabe's.

Sell banner space to those who wish to advertise. People would pay you. You could run your own banner for selling bullion and refining services. I am often surprised that you do not jump in and offer your goods when the conversation comes up.

Then you could make a living off this forum and you would not have to breathe toxic fumes for a living anymore. Me personally, I like working around the fumes but that is probably because I am too far gone.

One post per day of a reasonable length is probably fair. An inordinately long thing, containing more words than many of us have used in several months of posting, is not FAIR!!
Alas! I'll never know what she said, 'cause I'm gonna scroll on by her marathons from now on.
Granted, she has some valid points, but as has been mentioned b 4, many of us here have learned the facts long b 4 we came upon the kitco site.

ZIVA!! I AM TRYING to learn about the nuances of P.M. investing.

Give us a break and castrate that vocifewrous critter which resides within you!!

SDRer: Re - your 19:29 -- My error! I didn't see that little dollar sign. Did you see my post to Jin this morning about his question about the possible linking of the Ringit to a basket of currencies? We also have learned just recently that an 'Asia only' basket might be born, using the Malaysian currency as well as others.

My post to Jin was that only a basket of currencies made sense, with less than 50% US dollar weighting.

If I had read your post more carefully, I would have seen that the Asian currency basket forces are gathering strength. Perhaps China and other Asian countries have enough gold to start their own gold-backed currency. As you know, my guess -- and yours -- is that the SEAsian countries will be the first to set up a true gold-backed currency, a la BIS. SEAsia just had their deflationary 'bounce' so they had their 'accident at the intersection'. Hence they will be the first to 'set up the streetlights' --ie, go onto the gold standard again.

Thanks again for your informative posts -- I should read more carefully before I post.

HeavyHitter, paper does not always win. I have worthless currencies, stock certificates, and bonds to prove it. I don't have a single worthless PM coin and never will. Get a grip. Unless you have an interest payment to meet on borrowed funds that you bought into PM with, stop watching the markets and go pick fruit. Your gold will be there when you come back inside and it will still be real substance. You can't take it with you, but it's not easy for them to take it from you.

If gold acts like it's going to
break $290, I'm out. Period
$600 gold yes, I will sell only
if it tops. But I can assure you
I will get out alittle early.

Brother Heavy: I am afraid gold will try to retest $290 before this bear is ravaged by the golden bull. I do feel your pain because all my liquid assets are in bullion coins and I have borrowed more $$$$ to buy again. My gold holding to date is the largest single investment I have ever made and I am looking to purchase more. This I believe is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I am willing to bet the farm. The worse part of my story is I am buying because of a gut feeling and I have Nooo ( 0,none,not ) Gold investing background. My actions are not to be considered prudent or wise in today's uncertain CB selling environment but I could not live with the knowledge that I missed the BIG ONE. Good luck!

P.S. If you decide to unload some of the barbaric metal from your vast hoards of gold, I am a buyer of 300 coins at spot plus 1% for 9999% pure gold coins.

JTF (Rupiah 'pegged' to the Dollar?) ID#57232:
SDRer: Why is this such great news? This is what started the problem in the first place -- namely that the SEAsian currencies were not floating -- and the dollar went up. Now, a currency basket approach -- if done professionally -- would convince me that the currency problem was being dealt with. I fail to see why investors are flocking to the gates of Indonesia, unless the 'herd' instinct ( 'flock? instinct' ) has taken over.
I sincerely hope the Hong Kong dollar is slowly being converted to a currency basket, before the hedge funds attack again. Pegging to the dollar is asking for trouble!
I feel guilty sometimes being bearish about the equities markets, because I do not want a crash or a correction to occur. But -- we must move back to reality soon -- simply because the longer we wait the harder it will be. I have wondered if the stories about the great depression were correct -- namely that the US suffered the longest and the most. At the time, we were one of the strongest markets, and last to be hit, nearly 5 years after Europe. Perhaps part of the 'greatness' of the US has been in our belief system -- our strong beliefs giving strength to the markets and the economy -- but the flip side is that when our beliefs are shaken, we suffer more too.
If there was a 5 year delay from the beginning of the deflationary cycle in Europe to its end in the US, the same could very well happen now. Hard to believe the US markets could go up any more, but if there is no where else attractive to invest, and the US is inflationing, we may not have seen the end of our equities bubble! What about all of those banks that are getting into the Brokerage business? What if the market correction occurs in 1999 or later? Y2K, perhaps?

farfel (@JACK...KINROSS DOES IT AGAIN! GOLD EXPERTS WITHOUT EQUAL! ) ID#28585:
Effectively, Kinross is picking up Amax for only .8 shares of its stock...and they're getting Cyprus Amax to forgive most of the Amax debt.

So, in effect, Kinross gets a debt-free company with some outstanding mines, with a much smaller than normal dilutive effect on the company.

No doubt Kinross has the most astute gold management in the entire industry. The company performance has really been outstanding to date. Thus, Amax shareholders are getting one thing of enormous value: a new management that has major high-powered brains instead of Amax's brain-dead management of the past.

Now, it looks as though Kinross is effecting this merger in preparation for an even bigger merger deal down the road. I feel confident that when it comes time for NEM or PDG or whomever to merge with the new Kinross, they will be paying much more than .8 share of company stock for each Kinross share.

With a rising POG ( of at least 350 ) and a future merger in the making, I would not be surprised if Kinross experiences well over 100% increase in their stock price by year's end.

********************

WETGOLD & ARGENT:

The Internet is fun, But it is also a war.
It is a war between the most brilliant minds .
Unfortunately, the Trilateral employs
the best minds our society has to offer today.
Their agents are infesting
most influential discussion groups on the Internet.
In the past,
they resorted to PHYSICALLY destroying websites by remote programs,
similar to what happened to Kitco last year.
Now, the Trilateral are concentrating in
‘’’participating’’’ in discussion groups,
in order to disrupt or misinform or create falls impressions.
One of the most common ways to identify agents
is when they request you to send them your E-mail,
as it happen few times on this website.
You may have noticed that whoever complained about me,
did not argue with my data,
as my data proved to be correct most of the time,
but usually will attack me personally.
It is enough that just two or three agents
will complain about an individual to create the impression
that the majority in that group are against this person.

For your information, I NEED these kind of agents,
as they help me bring attention to my posts.
So please do not criticize them too much,
I don’t want to loose them.

Most Kitcoits are high caliber people
and you don’t have to hit them on the head too many times
before they get the message.
This is the reason why I do not have my Kitcoits in mind at all,
when I post.
My posts are directed at the thousands
or possibly millions ( how many, BART ? )
of people who read Kitco and never post.
Also, as my vocabulary is not sophisticated,
I am often delighted to find out that the response
to my posts is often much better than my original post
( read Spud Master 10:35 this morning ) .

I do not assert that everyone who comments negatively about me is a Trilateral agent, some are just fools or drunk, but it is part of the game. Some are just too upset as my new approaches demolished their outdated paradigms.
http://www.kitcomm.com/comments/gold/1998q1/1998_02/980209.180435.zivaeeeee.htm

I don’t indulge myself in endlessly regurgitating old information,
I do my best to provide FRESH, new approaches to analysis of GOLD performance, and world events which will effect GOLD performance. You could see that I am unconventional by some Kitcoits standards, as they are mostly not familiar with modern Technology in the
field of the Paranormal. I was attacked brutally, but it does not bother me at all.

The more Hell I raise in this forum, the more I know that I ‘hit home’.
WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY to the public who reads us in this forum to debate both sides of the coin, especially if it is a GOLD coin. We can not allow a few GOLD traders to control and decide who will post here, especially since most of these traders have performed so dismally in the past, based on their posts. You may have noticed that most people who
follow the advice of ‘’’GOLD experts’’ on this forum in the past, have consistently lost money all the way from 400 down to 280.

I am working now on a new software program which I intend to sell to BART KITNER. This advance ‘state of the art’ program, will automatically eliminate all the posts by drunks who are occasionally infesting this website past midnight. My program will incorporate a new technique developed by the Zimbabwe Police for detecting alcohol levels in Email.

Dear Aysha Queen of Asia,
Thank you for your post.
I would like to inform you that BART requested me
to renounce my Title QUEEN of KITCO.
You may approach me simply as ZIVA in the future.

As to your post:
It is very obvious that you are not an American and not Jewish.
It is better therefore that you will not participate in this war-conversation, and let me do the
dirty job. Most of us here are proud Americans & Jewish,
despise Saddam and love Israel.
SO, we can afford to criticize Clinton and Israel and try to be fare towards the Arabs at the same time.
I love you, but you simply do not have any chance to convince anyone here, we will always point a finger at you as the *enemy*.
I hope you will participate in the future in this forum. Try to provide new ideas instead of just supporting me, I do not need any help. If you have an interesting websites that represent the Arab points of views will be very happy if you will post them. We the Jews suffered more than anyone else in history, it is very sad we did not learn anything from history. I wish you the best.

Your 17:15 post is very interesting
and you sure stirred up a hornets nest
afterwards.
Since you have an excellent ability
to prognosticate, what is your
prognosis for the price of gold
and silver for 1998?
************

AYORK:
Look around you, the whole world is collapsing and the Trilateral are forcing us into WW3 to take our minds off the economy. Just as I told you last year, when I was not allowed to mention WW3 in this forum.

The Trilateral audacity to start WW3,
with the excuse that Saddam refuse to let us inspect his bedroom !!!
The Trilateral know what they are doing, they tested us at Waco.
We did not say anything at Waco, we will not say anything now.
( in compliance with Kitco’s guidelines, all you international Kitcoits,
who are not familiar with Waco, go to this website:
http://www.mnsinc.com/SkyWriter/WacoMuseum/ )

Whatever is coming will be much worse than Waco.
This time we will pay the price for being silent during Waco.
I will be very surprised if PHYSICAL GOLD will be below 1000 by the end of 1998.

BUT !!! I also said that sometime during 1999
gold will have no value
as there will be no one around to trade it,
just as there is no one in Waco today.
I expect a fully spread war in October, this year.
There will be no winners in this war.


Let me stress what I said last year:
My sources indicate that when Gold starts moving
it will move up so fast that no one will have a chance to get in.
What will cause this sharp ‘’’upheaval’’’ I don’t know.
It could be WW3, collapse of the economy, The Central Banks, Devaluation, ‘’’New currency’’’, oil-exchange, etc.

I am not a prophet.
I am just an old lady in the bush who uses common-sense.
You have to make up your own mind.
All my information comes from the Internet
I just use my intuition when I process it,
take it or leave it, I can not prove anything.

Re: Silver, I never had any interest in silver and this is the first time that silver is ever mentioned in my post. I see it as just another commodity, respectfully.

GOLD is in a class by itself, nothing else comes even close.

to go into a Trance State and to be able to see anyone or anything instantly around the world or on the moon, in the future or in the past. Time, does not exist, it is an illusion. It is an illusion that we invented to disguise our incompetence on this subject.
There are schools that will teach you to do Remote Viewing in the USA and Europe. The CIA already admitted using it since the seventies. All Intelligence organizations around the world today are now
using Remote Viewing actively for spying as well as the Vatican.
American scientists ( Dr. Hal Puthoff of Stanford Research Institute, in Menlo Park, Ca ) already admitted predicting successfully the commodities markets in the seventies. All the information of his research was handed to the Pentagon/NSA/Trilateral as they have paid for it.
I will be surprised if they did not use it for the last 25 years, while our kitcoits are still analyzing Elliot Waves, and loosing money.

I was amazed at the overwhelming response to my posts

This is a GOLD site and NOT Ziva-club.
I therefor agree with BART regarding limiting myself.
He did not tell me how to,
I decided to limit myself to a one post a day ( until further notice ) ,

********************

WETGOLD & ARGENT:

The Internet is fun, But it is also a war.
It is a war between the most brilliant minds .
Unfortunately, the Trilateral employs
the best minds our society has to offer today.
Their agents are infesting
most influential discussion groups on the Internet.
In the past,
they resorted to PHYSICALLY destroying websites by remote programs,
similar to what happened to Kitco last year.
Now, the Trilateral are concentrating in
‘’’participating’’’ in discussion groups,
in order to disrupt or misinform or create falls impressions.
One of the most common ways to identify agents
is when they request you to send them your E-mail,
as it happen few times on this website.
You may have noticed that whoever complained about me,
did not argue with my data,
as my data proved to be correct most of the time,
but usually will attack me personally.
It is enough that just two or three agents
will complain about an individual to create the impression
that the majority in that group are against this person.

For your information, I NEED these kind of agents,
as they help me bring attention to my posts.
So please do not criticize them too much,
I don’t want to loose them.

Most Kitcoits are high caliber people
and you don’t have to hit them on the head too many times
before they get the message.
This is the reason why I do not have my Kitcoits in mind at all,
when I post.
My posts are directed at the thousands
or possibly millions ( how many, BART ? )
of people who read Kitco and never post.
Also, as my vocabulary is not sophisticated,
I am often delighted to find out that the response
to my posts is often much better than my original post
( read Spud Master 10:35 this morning ) .

I do not assert that everyone who comments negatively about me is a Trilateral agent, some are just fools or drunk, but it is part of the game. Some are just too upset as my new approaches demolished their outdated paradigms.
http://www.kitcomm.com/comments/gold/1998q1/1998_02/980209.180435.zivaeeeee.htm

I don’t indulge myself in endlessly regurgitating old information,
I do my best to provide FRESH, new approaches to analysis of GOLD performance, and world events which will effect GOLD performance. You could see that I am unconventional by some Kitcoits standards, as they are mostly not familiar with modern Technology in the
field of the Paranormal. I was attacked brutally, but it does not bother me at all.

The more Hell I raise in this forum, the more I know that I ‘hit home’.
WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY to the public who reads us in this forum to debate both sides of the coin, especially if it is a GOLD coin. We can not allow a few GOLD traders to control and decide who will post here, especially since most of these traders have performed so dismally in the past, based on their posts. You may have noticed that most people who
follow the advice of ‘’’GOLD experts’’ on this forum in the past, have consistently lost money all the way from 400 down to 280.

I am working now on a new software program which I intend to sell to BART KITNER. This advance ‘state of the art’ program, will automatically eliminate all the posts by drunks who are occasionally infesting this website past midnight. My program will incorporate a new technique developed by the Zimbabwe Police for detecting alcohol levels in Email.

Dear Aysha Queen of Asia,
Thank you for your post.
I would like to inform you that BART requested me
to renounce my Title QUEEN of KITCO.
You may approach me simply as ZIVA in the future.

As to your post:
It is very obvious that you are not an American and not Jewish.
It is better therefore that you will not participate in this war-conversation, and let me do the
dirty job. Most of us here are proud Americans & Jewish,
despise Saddam and love Israel.
SO, we can afford to criticize Clinton and Israel and try to be fare towards the Arabs at the same time.
I love you, but you simply do not have any chance to convince anyone here, we will always point a finger at you as the *enemy*.
I hope you will participate in the future in this forum. Try to provide new ideas instead of just supporting me, I do not need any help. If you have an interesting websites that represent the Arab points of views will be very happy if you will post them. We the Jews suffered more than anyone else in history, it is very sad we did not learn anything from history. I wish you the best.
Ziva

Your 17:15 post is very interesting
and you sure stirred up a hornets nest
afterwards.
Since you have an excellent ability
to prognosticate, what is your
prognosis for the price of gold
and silver for 1998?
************

AYORK:
Look around you, the whole world is collapsing and the Trilateral are forcing us into WW3 to take our minds off the economy. Just as I told you last year, when I was not allowed to mention WW3 in this forum.

The Trilateral audacity to start WW3,
with the excuse that Saddam refuse to let us inspect his bedroom !!!
The Trilateral know what they are doing, they tested us at Waco.
We did not say anything at Waco, we will not say anything now.
( in compliance with Kitco’s guidelines, all you international Kitcoits,
who are not familiar with Waco, go to this website:
http://www.mnsinc.com/SkyWriter/WacoMuseum/ )

Whatever is coming will be much worse than Waco.
This time we will pay the price for being silent during Waco.
I will be very surprised if PHYSICAL GOLD will be below 1000 by the end of 1998.

BUT !!! I also said that sometime during 1999
gold will have no value
as there will be no one around to trade it,
just as there is no one in Waco today.
I expect a fully spread war in October, this year.
There will be no winners in this war.


Let me stress what I said last year:
My sources indicate that when Gold starts moving
it will move up so fast that no one will have a chance to get in.
What will cause this sharp ‘’’upheaval’’’ I don’t know.
It could be WW3, collapse of the economy, The Central Banks, Devaluation, ‘’’New currency’’’, oil-exchange, etc.

I am not a prophet.
I am just an old lady in the bush who uses common-sense.
You have to make up your own mind.
All my information comes from the Internet
I just use my intuition when I process it,
take it or leave it, I can not prove anything.

Re: Silver, I never had any interest in silver and this is the first time that silver is ever mentioned in my post. I see it as just another commodity, respectfully.

GOLD is in a class by itself, nothing else comes even close.

Remote Viewing is the natural ability that all of us have
to go into a Trance State and to be able to see anyone or anything instantly around the world or on the moon, in the future or in the past. Time, does not exist, it is an illusion. It is an illusion that we invented to disguise our incompetence on this subject.
There are schools that will teach you to do Remote Viewing in the USA and Europe. The CIA already admitted using it since the seventies. All Intelligence organizations around the world today are now
using Remote Viewing actively for spying as well as the Vatican.
American scientists ( Dr. Hal Puthoff of Stanford Research Institute, in Menlo Park, Ca ) already admitted predicting successfully the commodities markets in the seventies. All the information of his research was handed to the Pentagon/NSA/Trilateral as they have paid for it.
I will be surprised if they did not use it for the last 25 years, while our kitcoits are still analyzing Elliot Waves, and loosing money.

DO YOU HOMEWORK TRICKY, USE THE INTERNET !

As you seem to be a newcomer, I will give you just three URL’s from my library of hundreds of URL’s, just on the subject of Remote Viewing:

IF I sounded mad recently it is because

Aysha - Queen of Asia
****************

Dear Aysha Queen of Asia,
Thank you for your post.
I would like to inform you that BART requested me
to renounce my Title QUEEN of KITCO.
You may approach me simply as ZIVA in the future.

As to your post:
It is very obvious that you are not an American and not Jewish.
It is better therefore that you will not participate in this war-conversation, and let me do the
dirty job. Most of us here are proud Americans & Jewish,
despise Saddam and love Israel.
SO, we can afford to criticize Clinton and Israel and try to be fare towards the Arabs at the same time.
I love you, but you simply do not have any chance to convince anyone here, we will always point a finger at you as the *enemy*.
I hope you will participate in the future in this forum. Try to provide new ideas instead of just supporting me, I do not need any help. If you have an interesting websites that represent the Arab points of views will be very happy if you will post them. We the Jews suffered more than anyone else in history, it is very sad we did not learn anything from history. I wish you the best.
Ziva

Your 17:15 post is very interesting
and you sure stirred up a hornets nest
afterwards.
Since you have an excellent ability
to prognosticate, what is your
prognosis for the price of gold
and silver for 1998?
************

AYORK:
Look around you, the whole world is collapsing and the Trilateral are forcing us into WW3 to take our minds off the economy. Just as I told you last year, when I was not allowed to mention WW3 in this forum.

The Trilateral audacity to start WW3,
with the excuse that Saddam refuse to let us inspect his bedroom !!!
The Trilateral know what they are doing, they tested us at Waco.
We did not say anything at Waco, we will not say anything now.
( in compliance with Kitco’s guidelines, all you international Kitcoits,
who are not familiar with Waco, go to this website:
http://www.mnsinc.com/SkyWriter/WacoMuseum/ )

Whatever is coming will be much worse than Waco.
This time we will pay the price for being silent during Waco.
I will be very surprised if PHYSICAL GOLD will be below 1000 by the end of 1998.

BUT !!! I also said that sometime during 1999
gold will have no value
as there will be no one around to trade it,
just as there is no one in Waco today.
I expect a fully spread war in October, this year.
There will be no winners in this war.


Let me stress what I said last year:
My sources indicate that when Gold starts moving
it will move up so fast that no one will have a chance to get in.
What will cause this sharp ‘’’upheaval’’’ I don’t know.
It could be WW3, collapse of the economy, The Central Banks, Devaluation, ‘’’New currency’’’, oil-exchange, etc.

I am not a prophet.
I am just an old lady in the bush who uses common-sense.
You have to make up your own mind.
All my information comes from the Internet
I just use my intuition when I process it,
take it or leave it, I can not prove anything.

Re: Silver, I never had any interest in silver and this is the first time that silver is ever mentioned in my post. I see it as just another commodity, respectfully.

GOLD is in a class by itself, nothing else comes even close.

Remote Viewing is the natural ability that all of us have
to go into a Trance State and to be able to see anyone or anything instantly around the world or on the moon, in the future or in the past. Time, does not exist, it is an illusion. It is an illusion that we invented to disguise our incompetence on this subject.
There are schools that will teach you to do Remote Viewing in the USA and Europe. The CIA already admitted using it since the seventies. All Intelligence organizations around the world today are now
using Remote Viewing actively for spying as well as the Vatican.
American scientists ( Dr. Hal Puthoff of Stanford Research Institute, in Menlo Park, Ca ) already admitted predicting successfully the commodities markets in the seventies. All the information of his research was handed to the Pentagon/NSA/Trilateral as they have paid for it.
I will be surprised if they did not use it for the last 25 years, while our kitcoits are still analyzing Elliot Waves, and loosing money.

Don’t use profanities or foul language.
Don’t make any insulting remarks or statements

ALL:
I was amazed at the overwhelming response to my posts

********************

WETGOLD & ARGENT:

The Internet is fun, But it is also a war.
It is a war between the most brilliant minds .
Unfortunately, the Trilateral employs
the best minds our society has to offer today.
Their agents are infesting
most influential discussion groups on the Internet.
In the past,
they resorted to PHYSICALLY destroying websites by remote programs,
similar to what happened to Kitco last year.
Now, the Trilateral are concentrating in
‘’’participating’’’ in discussion groups,
in order to disrupt or misinform or create falls impressions.
One of the most common ways to identify agents
is when they request you to send them your E-mail,
as it happen few times on this website.
You may have noticed that whoever complained about me,
did not argue with my data,
as my data proved to be correct most of the time,
but usually will attack me personally.
It is enough that just two or three agents
will complain about an individual to create the impression
that the majority in that group are against this person.

For your information, I NEED these kind of agents,
as they help me bring attention to my posts.
So please do not criticize them too much,
I don’t want to loose them.

Most Kitcoits are high caliber people
and you don’t have to hit them on the head too many times
before they get the message.
This is the reason why I do not have my Kitcoits in mind at all,
when I post.
My posts are directed at the thousands
or possibly millions ( how many, BART ? )
of people who read Kitco and never post.
Also, as my vocabulary is not sophisticated,
I am often delighted to find out that the response
to my posts is often much better than my original post
( read Spud Master 10:35 this morning ) .

I do not assert that everyone who comments negatively about me is a Trilateral agent, some are just fools or drunk, but it is part of the game. Some are just too upset as my new approaches demolished their outdated paradigms.
http://www.kitcomm.com/comments/gold/1998q1/1998_02/980209.180435.zivaeeeee.htm

I don’t indulge myself in endlessly regurgitating old information,
I do my best to provide FRESH, new approaches to analysis of GOLD performance, and world events which will effect GOLD performance. You could see that I am unconventional by some Kitcoits standards, as they are mostly not familiar with modern Technology in the
field of the Paranormal. I was attacked brutally, but it does not bother me at all.

The more Hell I raise in this forum, the more I know that I ‘hit home’.
WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY to the public who reads us in this forum to debate both sides of the coin, especially if it is a GOLD coin. We can not allow a few GOLD traders to control and decide who will post here, especially since most of these traders have performed so dismally in the past, based on their posts. You may have noticed that most people who
follow the advice of ‘’’GOLD experts’’ on this forum in the past, have consistently lost money all the way from 400 down to 280.

I am working now on a new software program which I intend to sell to BART KITNER. This advance ‘state of the art’ program, will automatically eliminate all the posts by drunks who are occasionally infesting this website past midnight. My program will incorporate a new technique developed by the Zimbabwe Police for detecting alcohol levels in Email.

C-A also decreases the share float, but I don't like the total number of shares that the new Kinross has. The new mining costs look good, that is if they hold.

Reports that Jakarta is seriously considering pegging the rupiah at a fixed rate TO ANOTHER CURRENCY ( please note, it does NOT say $ or 'basket' but 'ANOTHER CURRENCY'--words have MEANING ) sent the Indonesian currency surging by more than 30 per cent on Tuesday. The stunning rise was accompanied by a MASSIVE SELL-OFF in US dollars around the region with Asian currencies posting robust gains against the greenback. The rupiah strengthened to as high as 7,400 a US dollar, its strongest level in more than three weeks. It closed in Jakarta at 7,500/7,800 per US dollar after opening at 9,400/9,700. It ended in New York on Monday overnight at 9,700/9,900.

I don’t really understand the reason for the alarm and pessimism over gold’s performance. As someone has already said, given the Dow spike to new highs, gold bullion stayed relatively calm. The XAU is another matter and may reflect the new euphoria that the Dow will crash through 8500 ( which it seems ready to do ) and maybe a moonshot all the way to 9000! But I really don’t think the illusionists will prevail. Investors still must face corporate earnings reports, the colossal bank debt problems in Asia, potential inflation, and an over-bought market. The dollar is not doing well and the Euro-dollar is coming to challenge its monetary dominance. I still think, though gold may retest lows, it will move up.

IRAQ HAS STOCKPILE OF AGENT 15 NERVE GAS
February 10,
1998

The London Times reported today that the British Defense Ministry has revealed that
Saddam Hussein has stored huge stockpiles of Agent 15 nerve gas which causes
weakness, dizziness, disorientation, hallucinations, and loss of coordination. The gas can
be introduced into water or used in missile warheads. The Times said that the disclosure
was sure to be followed by others as the U.S. and Britain look to build support for military
action against Iraq.

In related news, the UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, said yesterday that both sides in
the dispute should drop fundamentalist or purist positions and come up with a workable
proposal that all would accept and can live with. Asked by Reuters if he meant that both
Baghdad and Washington should cool it, he said, You can put it that way.

Meanwhile, former Desert Storm commander General Noram Schwarzkopf told NBC that the
U.S. runs the risk of another Vietnam if it bombs Iraq. He said, We run the risk of doing the
same thing we did to North Vietnam referring to escalated U.S. bombing without achieving
military or political goals.

ARAFAT'S PALESTINIAN PARTY STAGES PRO-IRAQ
RALLIES IN ISRAEL
February 9,
1998

Yassar Arafat's Fatah movement of the PLO organized rallies today in the West Bank of
Israel where thousands of Palestinians marched in support of Iraq. They burned U.S. flags
and carried a model of an Iraqi Scud missile. Israel has warned the Palestinians that open
support of Saddam Hussein could damage the peace process and suggested that there
could be Israeli sanctions. Arafat and the PLO supported Hussein during the Gulf War and
many Palestinians cheered when Scud missiles hit Israel.

The Jerusalem Post reported today that former U.S. Defense Secretary James Baker has
acknowledged Israel's right to retaliate should it come under fire from Iraq again. He said, If
Israel is on the receiving end of an attack...it would be my expectation that she would
probably retaliate. It would be my expectation--but it's only a guess--that the American
government would not stand in the way of retaliation. Things are different this time.

Yesterday, Iran's Defence Minister Admiral Shamkhani said that military movements in the
Persian Gulf indicate that a U.S. attack on Iraq was imminent. He said, that the U.S.
...wants to hit Iraq dispite international opposition and in absence of a decision by the UN
Security Council.

ISRAELIS THREATENS IRAQ WITH NUCLEAR RESPONSE
IF CHEMICAL OR BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS ARE
LAUNCHED AGAINST ISRAEL
January 29,
1998

In response to CIA warnings that Iraq will likely fire Scud missiles armed with
non-conventional warheads at Israel if it is attacked by the U.S., Israel issued a tough
warning that Saddam Hussein could expect a nuclear response to any chemical or
biological attack. The communications director under the Israeli prime minister, David
Bar-Illan, said, Surely Iraq must know that it will not pay to attack Israel, and that Israel has
all the means necessary to make such an attack very, very dangerous for Iraq-much more
dangerous for Iraq than it is for Israel.

Be sure to read the fine print if and when you put your funds in the hands of Treasury and the Federal Reserve. Just cause you can deposit it whenever you want does not mean you can withdraw it whenever you want. You may remember the gas rationing when even and odd numbered license plates had their designated days for buying gas. If there is a liquidity crisis and liquidity rationing, when you re-invest will not be a decision you will make. Fed Reserve has control of ALL credit allocation in these United States. That's another reason why I want a physical dividend. They won't bother to write a regulation on it and I'm not sure they even could since it is not credit.

I recall an old friend many years ago who also went by the nickname of Heavy. He told a story once of his second tour in Vietnam, when he was flying a close air support mission. He recalled that he'd been fired upon by ground forces and returned fire, but fixated on his target. He would normally have broken off contact sooner but in losing his perspective he nearly hit the ground. He said that when he came home he had propeller damage and ground debris stuck in his cowling.

farfel (@MYRMIDON...MARKET DECIDED KINROSS IS WINNER IN MERGER!!) ID#28585:
Myrmidon, it looks like the market has determined that Kinross is getting the better part of the deal in its Amax merger. I suppose they are insofar as the fact that they are offering only .8 of a share Kinross for each Amax share.

Before you go and get upset, remember that ultimately, you and other Amax shareholders will end up with Kinross stock. So, therefore, it is in your ultimate interests that Kinross stock stay steady ( or even gain ) so that current Kinross shareholders do not jump ship and create further deterioration in the Kinross stock price.

Moreover, from this point on, every dollar gain in Kinross stock is a gain of .80 for you and other Amax shareholders ( until the merger is effected, at which point every dollar gain becomes a full dollar gain to you ) .

I honestly sense that it will not be long before another major producer comes after Kinross with a merger offer...so get ready to look over a lot of prospectuses over the next year.

The Au consolidation wheel is about to gather steam...the senior mining executives are finally putting 2 and 2 together and realizing consolidation is the only chance for survival.

I believe you might be surprised at the number of people worldwide and in the US who think there is something behind the federal reserve note. There will be truly a new paradigm when everyone realizes there is nothing behind the FRN. There will be no 1929 over again because everything has changed. In the 1930's very few people realized exactly what FDR had done on March 9, 1933. Fewer still realized how the Constitution was being bypassed by the States and the federal co-operatively. From the period of 1933 to 1971, some connection, however tenuous, was maintained with gold. Federal Reserve Notes are now clearly nothing but bills of credit. We have not had a money situation in the US like the one we have now since before the Constitutional Convention in 1781.

In 1971 the United States, Richard Nixon, President, unilaterlly broke its covenent to redeem the international trading dollar in gold in settlements of balances of payments. How long will it be until it renounces all covenant with the people ? The seasons repeat, but never exactly the same. So, too, with patterns in history.

These are words of wisdom:

in actual numbers it looked impressive

The absolute numbers oscillated in a range and never went above 1000 for 10 years

YES. When the figures are normalized and viewed relative to some other element in the market the oscillation is based on the classic boom/bust relationships for over 150 years in the USA.

When fiat currency is expanded through credit the slope of the cycle is hardly detected while taking small samples in time. This is the classic relationship described by Fourier many years ago. While time is expanded or compressed the other DOMAIN has an inverse relationship of compressing or expanding.

SO-here we have a case of viewing the data which has NOT been normalized and hoping that trees will continue to reach the sky.... We know however that it is impossible ..

So in actual numbers it looked impressive. But with inflation factored in the German stock market dropped worse than any other country in the 1927 to 1932 time frame. Ya gotta wonder about this. Someone last night made a comment about the 1980's DOW as adjusted for inflation really looked alot like 1929 - 1932 era. The absolute numbers oscillated in a range and never went above 1000 for 10 years. But inflation eat its heart out. So the question is did we have a depression then? Or an inflation? Or both?

WetGold (One of the many principles of Islamic Banking ...) ID#243180:

Making money from money is not Islamically acceptable.

Money is only a medium of exchange, a way of defining the value of a thing; it has no value in itself, and therefore should not be allowed to give rise to more money, via fixed interest payments, simply by being put in a bank or lent to someone else. The human effort, initiative, and risk involved in a productive venture are more important than the money used to finance it. Muslim jurists consider money as potential capital rather than capital, meaning that money becomes capital only when it is invested in business. Accordingly, money advanced to a business as a loan is regarded as a debt of the business and not capital and, as such, it is not entitled to any return ( i.e. interest ) . Muslims are encouraged to purchase and are discouraged from keeping money idle so that, for instance, hoarding money is regarded as being unacceptable. In Islam, money represents purchasing power which is considered to be the only proper use of money. This purchasing power ( money ) cannot be used to make more purchasing power ( money ) without undergoing the intermediate step of it being used for the purchase of goods and services.

Rising sunspot activity correlates with bullish market activity, but it also correlates well with a rising commodity price index -- perhaps even better than with the markets. Correlation with the gold price is also evident -- but my data on gold is less reliable -- partially I think due to its political nature.

By the way -- for you doubters -- I am not talking about quoting some author on sunspot activity and market behavior -- I am talking about my own graphical analysis. I do not have a clue on what the causal relationship is, just statistical correlation over 100 years.

JTF (Irrational Exhuberance? Will AG do something? Is he too worried about SEAsia?) ID#57232:
All: The steady rise in the sp-500 for the last 10 days ( intraday charts ) is amazing. I am wondering if I should have believed my own statements about this time of the year being bullish and that rising sunspot activity would be a time of bull markets. I said at one time that a statistical analysis shows that times of rising sunspot activity increases the likelihood of a stock market rally by a factor of 2. But no -- I was too involved in current affairs and the SEASia crisis to want to invest significant amounts of cash in the market.

I see no evidence of a market top over the last 10 days of following the SP-500. And -- our 'pasting' of Iraq will be bullish for the market as well -- as long as we don't have an unexpected military reversal. I think the real threat to world peace will not be in the current ME fracas, but later when our forces have left. Unless -- Saddam has some terrorists strategically placed in the US. He has repeatedly shown little concern for preserving any kind of human life -- except perhaps his own.

But-- I see no evidence that gold is heading down, either.

I think what we need to do is shrug off our natural tendency to want to jump into the equity markets as we watch the market rally, and keep our powder dry. This bull market is riding on 'vapor' as Maverick would say -- and we must steel ourselves from jumping in -- unless we are short termer pros like the Oldman.

I think we must watch Monicagate, a possible Chinese devaluation, a Brazil/Argentina/Columbia crisis -- It will take alot to bring down this exhuberant market -- but alot can happen, and quickly.

One very interesting -- and the most ominous -- fact is that AG is strangely silent as the DOW fast approaches a new high! Does he know something we don't, and is afraid to spook the market?

Just 2 weeks ago I saw two posts here ridiculing Bob Brinker's Sunday radio show Moneytalk for predicting 8000+ DOW and new highs in the near term. Brinker has once again proven correct in his call. His accuracy has been uncanny, in fact he PRECISELY called the last correction bottom at 7500, and gave his buy signal at 7500 the very week before that recent low was reached!

I'm going to have to start following Brinker more closely. His calls have been spot on in World markets as well, both upside and downside. ( He was one of the first to encourage folks OUT of the Asian markets before they collpased ) .

I still feel the DOW is overvalued, thus I missed this whole move...and I have that feeling of doom that we have nasty surprises ahead of us....corporate profits and earnings reports are sure to be disappointing in the months ahead, but we'll just have to watch closely for developments.

If the CB has the reserves to defend the currency and a strong local economy then it will be able to keep its currency at the target specified by the peg. It's not like the U.N. will intervene if the CB cannot meet it's target ( the peg is broken ) .

Hongkong has both but paid a severe price in terms of much higher interest rates and decimated stock and property markets.

14 gold mines, 110 000 jobs under threat - govt considers options

Government is considering a range of solutions to alleviate the plight of 14 endangered gold mines which together employ approximately 110 000 mineworkers, Minerals and Energy Deputy Minister Susan Shabangu said yesterday.

Addressing journalists at a special briefing in Cape Town, Shabangu said that her department had been warned by the mining industry to expect a significant number of retrenchments in the gold mining industry during 1998, given the present gold price.

At the current gold price there are believed to be about 12 gold mines which are operating at a loss and a further two which are marginal [those with a profit/revenue ratio of less than 5%], Shabangu said.

A range of solutions are being considered by the department of minerals and energy together with the affected mines, including improving efforts to promote downstream activities related to mining, and to gold mining in particular ( such as jewellery manufacture ) .

We are also providing short-term subsidies related to water-pumping to relieve some marginal mines, Shabangu said. Other efforts outlined by the deputy minister include:



•Promoting smaller operations and mining activities which may be mined profitably on land which larger companies find unprofitable or insignificant;

•Efforts to get clarity from world central banks on their policy intentions regarding gold reserves;

•Fast-tracking discussions around a social plan for equipping retrenched mineworkers with skills which will enable them to find employment outside mining; and

•Encouraging initiatives to find new local development possibilities and encourage new investment in order to make the best use of the extensive infrastructure and population in declining mining towns.



The decline in the dollar gold price over the past year has been sharp, although partially moderated by the depreciation of the rand against the dollar. Gold closed on the JSE yesterday at US$300,50.

That also was the only time the Dow finished

S&P 500 index rose 7.78 to 1,018.52. A close

slightly more than a week for the S&P 500.
The market was helped also by news that

Bonds were higher ahead of Tuesday's start

Allen(USA) (JIN) ID#246224:
Short term this may help ( maybe ) . But the reason Asia fell apart was because of pegging to the dollar. When the dollar went up, up, up it was hard to say the Asian currencies *should* be up, up, up also. If exchange floats then oiver the long haul either up or down should be slow movement. But when things are pegged this stops the market from judging each countries 'value'. It is only a matter of time before things will blow out again.

If I peg my money to yours and yours becomes weaker then I've 'shot my own foot'. If I peg my money to yours and MY money becomes weaker I'm better off. So, IMHO, a peg is admission that my money is weaker and will be worth less in the future. 'pegging' is not a very good idea because alot of pressure builds up that MUST be released .. and it usually will blow up in your face. It is almost always the 'weaker' money that blows up later. This is not a fix, but a problem on top of a problem.

Typical politicians, they always try the same tricks that never work.

JTF (Indonesia Currency board, dollar peg?) ID#57232:
Jin: I can help you a bit on this, though there are others on this site who know more. The currency board idea sounds like a great idea, as then the Rupiah will no longer be linked to any one currency -- so it will be more stable. As I understand it, the instability of the US dollar contributed a great deal to the current currency crisis in SEAsia -- when the respective currencies were not allowed to float freely wrt to the US dollar.

If the Rupiah is to be linked to a currency board of the world's strongest and most stable currencies ( gold too? - I wish! ) then this will be very bullish for Indonesian markets. My guess is that the 'peg' to the US dollar just refers to a starting point for launching this process. What we need to do is find out what currencies make up the currency board, and their weighting. It would be very bullish for all of SEAsia if more than one country is doing this -- as this would reduce currency fluctuation risk -- provided that the ideal mix of stable international currencies is used. I would guess that the list should include the Swiss Frank, the German Mark, the Austrian dollar ( ) , the Japanese yen, the Chinese Reminbi and the US dollar, with less than 50% weighting in US dollars.

Jin -- Take care! I hope you are good at 'hiding', and being low profile.

On Buffett and his silver accumulation: Someone last night how he could have accumulate so much without forcing a significant rise in price until the news was announced. Someone more experienced than me might correct me but it seems it was done through the purchase of futures and then ( contrary to the norm ) taking delivery. The massive market paper trade in metals makes it very easy for one to accumulate a large position without showing one's hand. Obviously it is the time of taking physical delivery that things become clear - but as we saw in this situation, the market only saw a gradual draw down over months without knowing where it was going. The same could easily happen with gold. Even he though runs the risk of the inability to take delivery - particularly if he's doing the same with gold as he did with silver and the word gets out too early. Any comments?

Madeleine's musings: In her testiomony before congress this AM Madeleine Albright made several significant verbal blunders.

1 ) Concerning America and the UN debt she made the statement - The best America is a leader, not a debtor. What a statement! Obviously she meant it in regard to our UN Debt and her feeling we should pay up. Consider it though, as an oxymoron regarding our current status as a massive debtor nation.

2 ) Concerning the Asia crisis, in response to a question from Senator Joseph Biden she said concerning Indonesia - I think that the legacy he ( Suharto ) has put in economically should be maintained. I don't know what she was really thinking but it is scary to consider our desire to support and maintain a legacy of nepotism, massive corruption and ethnic oppression.

Rupiah rises on speculation of pegging
currency to dollar


JAKARTA, Indonesia ( AP ) - The battered rupiah rose almost 30
percent against the dollar today on speculation that Indonesia might
adopt a fixed exchange rate for its currency, dealers said.

The rupiah closed at 7,450 against the dollar, up from its close Monday
at 9,500.

Dealers said rumors intensified throughout the day that the government
would create a currency board and peg the rupiah to the dollar at a rate
of 5,000.

Indonesia has been mired in economic crisis for months. At its lowest
point, in early January, the rupiah hit almost 17,000 to the dollar - a
drop in value of more than 80 percent since last summer.

The currency has steadily improved in recent weeks since Suharto
agreed to sweeping economic reforms required under a $40 billion
International Monetary Fund bailout.

Suharto said Monday that his government would try to eliminate
currency speculation and that the rupiah needed to be fixed. He did not
elaborate.

Suharto met last week with economist Steve Hanke of John Hopkins
University, an advocate of the currency board system.


thanks,happy trading.

Much of this century Industrial progress in the West was made possible by cheap energy like Oil...

The British and American conglomerates made it possible by managing their oil refineries and keeping the local administration and government officials ignorant to the technology and the importance of oil to an ever increasing industrialized world.

When they had awaken in the late 60's the locals formed a cartel while raising the education of their scientists and political families and the rest is history.

As I had hypothesized last weekend regarding ANOTHER's posts this trend may one day reverse, in that, the powerful military strategists could in the future retake the oil fields by force ( not ignorance this time ) and hold hostage world supply/demand cycles. This, of course, could only be done with the blessings of those pulling our collective strings.

Until then, this non-sense going on is JUST A DIVERSION. Let it take its course because it will go where it is told to go -- You have no say in this.

Personally, I enjoy the specualtion I;ve been reading for many months regarding the gold/oil scenario -- this is rather fascinating and definitely have seed of a truth. Don;t sit buy and let this play out -- GET YOUR PMs --NOW--NOW---NOW....

Do we really want to eliminate SH, and are there any friendly democratic ( and competent ) leader types left in Iraq that have survived all of SH's assassinations? The Kurds didn't fare well during their last uprising, and any friendly to the US met an unfortunate end.

Years of Easy money have blinded us to the true nature and role of money. While
iniatially the expansion of a credit based system helped solve many problems of available
capital and liquidity,predictably it would bring many of its own troubles thru excess and
abuse.
Gold’s steep drop of the last two years clearly indicates how severely the Easy
Money ( Credit ) era has eroded our sense of values both economic and moral. True
money has 4 main elements. INTRINSIC VALUE ( the most important because it enables
money’s three main roles: VALUE YARDSTICK........STOREHOUSE OF
VALUE.......MEDIUM OF EXCHANGE ( which facilitates what would otherwise be a
cumbersome barter system ) Historically these qualities have been found in silver and
gold. Trading was further facilitated with the creation of paper promises to pay in these
metals. In 1971 that promise was totally reneged upon and our so-called money in
reality became just empty promises. Without the restraining tie to gold and silver our
Government “servants” have been free to run amok with the printing presses. Now it
appears our excesses in this sorry saga are coming back to haunt us....as the polluted
paper which is supposed to lubricate the financial system is fouling it instead. The
current dilemma is THEY must keep doing the very thing which caused the problem in
the first place....keep printing or face collapse. Further complicating the scene is the use
of one nation’s currency as a basis for international financial dealings..giving that
currency in effect a split personality. Adjustments that may be necessary to accomodate
the International function may often conflict with what’s needed at home. ( Interest rate
changes for instance ) .An independent value unit for international dealings is clearly
needed. As the present Fiat fling groans under the burden of its many inadequacies
change is urgently needed. It is time to re-discover that a true medium of exchange must
spring from some intrinsic value which also brings the other important roles of value
-yardstick and storehouse of value. I venture it is such a lack that dooms the present
monetary setup.Is this perhaps the root of what Another is trying to convey?

Example2: Ted Koppel ( Nightline ) independently verified Jackie Judd's report of secret Grand Jury testimony several minutes prior to airing ( late at night ) . Does anyone believe that Koppell's source was close to the Starr camp and does anyone believe that Judge Starr's people want to jeopardize the investigation ?

Let me throw something else on the table.
I will be happy to place my faith in Ezekiel 38 and 39 the moment you explain why back in 2000BC old Ezekiel, who obviously had everything all figured out, couldn't be bothered with naming the future combatants properly so we sould really know what he was talking about. Why leave such an obvious hole for you, the divinely inspired Denton, TX to have to fill in now these 4000 years later? Or was this just a make-work technique for the coming of Ziza?

Thanks D.A. for explaining that giving SH a nice pasting will be more like the Khadaffi adventure in Libia than a war in any real sense of the word. George Bush had to hype the process for the Dessert Storm War because we really did not know what was going to happen. This time around, as you so ably point out, will be different.

BTW, some of those toasting SH's demise will probably be the same Saudi princes who have denied us permission to fly from their soil. Go figure.






Read Ezekiel 38 and 39 about Russia and an army of Arab nations invading Northern Israel some day in
the future. These countries are identified by the original sons and descendants of Noah. Today these
countries would be identified as Iran, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, Russia. The countries identified as
to asking the question why have you come for plunder would be England and her colonies, Arabia,
Jordan.

During continuing unrest in the middle east, one of the leaders will
be able to get ahold of an atom bomb. He will be crazy and go to the
greatest lengths over the smallest thing and will not hesitate to
use the weapon because his obsessions with deadly warfare. The people
he is warring against retaliate with a nuclear weapon. The country
has a coast on the Mediterranean.
One of the bombs will land in the Mediterranean instead of the land,
poisoning all the fish. The passages of trade in the region will be
disrupted so that the people on the other coast of the Mediterranean
will be desperate for food and will eat the fish anyway. It will
happen near the east coast of the Mediterranean in a region of
dark-colored cliffs.I p 183 ( cII-4 )
The atomic weapon being dropped by one of the Middle Eastern countries
will spark off yet another war on top of that war. Eurpoean and
Western nations will try to interfere to diminish the threat to oil
supplies. When the Eurpoean countries try to interfere, the crazed
leader who earlier dropped the atomic bomb will use the rest of his
arsenal on Europe, most striking the closer southern part.
The Eurpoean Mediterranean coast, particularly that of Italy and
France, will be almost uninhabitable, and Italy will get the brunt.
This leader is not the Antichrist but helps to set the stage for the
Antichrist to rise to power with little or no opposition. The
Antichrist will wield great power and authority; no one can arguewith him.

@James - re. anthrax - my Swiss pocket knife is enough to kill every person on Earth, if they'll all stand still & wait long enough. That kind of made-for-public-consumption prole-feed crap 5lb of anthrax is enough to kill everyone on the planet should be viewed in the context of public opinion manipulation. Clinton & his Masters are hell-bent to have this little war with Iraq whereby US troops ( mothers & fathers most of them ) will die while the Supreme Coward & Exposer Bill Clinton is safe & warm in the Whorehouse, Washington, D.C.

@Avalon - Isn't it funny how the world's great Liberals, Clinton & Blair, are ardent for WAR with Iraq? Do not worry - a provocation WILL be found, conviently, as the seminal event to force an American attack. Hitler & crew dressed corpses in Polish uniforms and faked a border incident back in 1939 as the pretext for invading Poland.

I wouldn't doubt that we have a few SCUDs sitting out in the desert or at sea, on some covert platform to lob at Kuwait or Saudia Arabian oil fields to provide the excuse. Recall from Orwell's 1984, that Winston Smith muses that the rocket bombs falling on Air Stip One were probably fired by the Party just to keep up the war-fever pitch.

The latest gag was Clinton's comments this morning that the attack wouldn't be to remove Saddam - just his weapons. Now, that flies in the face of all reason: he rebuilt, supposedly, to this current level, because we left him in power. Now, we are going to do the same thing AGAIN? Does this mean in another 6 years we will be going at Iraq again?

Weep for America, we accomplished so much, only to turn Freedom over to the most venal, vicious and manipulative of people. Our government is a sham - a veneer of republican democracy - run by thugs in suits. It took 200 years to run full-circle from freedom to totalitarian rule.

The countries identified as to asking the question why have you come for plunder would be England and her colonies, Arabia, Jordan.

If the USA acting as an aggressor nation without the backing of the United Nations or the rest of the world community attacks Iraq then Russia might counter attack and should she wound USA then what is spoken of by Ezekiel regarding the Valley of Megiddo could very well take place.

This is not, I repeat not the battle of Armageddon spoken of later in the scriptures. However, this major event in human history would shift the balance of power away from USA and Russia to the EU who would then rule the earth until the second coming of Christ.

D.A. (one.sided.war) ID#7568:
All:

Anyone expecting a war, in the sense that there will be two matched forces in battle, is in for a disappointment, After having a great deal of his military infrastructure taken out in the first affair, SH is in no position to put up any significant resistance.

Going into the first encounter, the media was full of stories about how at minimum 10,000 US soldiers would die, and several times that number would be wounded. Actual US Gulf War casualties were significantly lower than casualties due to traffic accidents in the US over the same time. period.

The second time around is going to be no different, except that the level of engagement is going to be much smaller. For starters, expect all of SH's 60 odd palaces to disappear. Add to this any potential weapons sites whose access was restricted. If SH is so unfortunate to be in one of the palaces, so much the better.

As for the vulnerability of the aircraft carriers in the Persian gulf, let's be serious. The most successful mission flown by the Iraqi air force during the war was the mass desertion to Iran on day one. The targeting capabilities of scud missles have also been amply demonstrated.

The big risks in this 'war' are that Iraq fires off some chemical or biological weapons towards Israel and actual hits something that matters. If this occurs, it is not out of the question that Israel retaliates in kind, but certainly far more effectively. In some bizarre circumstance one could see Syria and or Iran using this as cover to attack Israel, although it would be highly unlikely. There is very, very little for them to gain by starting a war with Israel, and an enormous amount for them to lose.

The most likely outcome, if SH does not back down, is that SH is taken out. Everyone publicly bitches and moans about the US and how targeting leaders for assassination is a terrible, terrible thing, while privately they raise their glasses, and toast SH good riddance.

He will say the US used chemical weapons on them during the bombing to make it look like ( SH ) had them. He is up to it. Do you think that this would unify the Arabs and Muslims in hatrid against the US? He has NO HEART but of stone. Consider the antipathy that Bo Pal in India created for DOW Corp. This ploy will work because the Arabs do not trust Western news or intelligence. They believe what their own people spin up for stories. My sense is that any people he wants out of certain cities are being moved out at this moment. The sheep are left. This would also be an excuse to eliminate many of his enemies and those municipalities which were not so whole hearted in supporting him.

IF this is what is going on then he has been playing this like a well worn fiddle; placed weapons sites just where he'd want them to be, etc. Reminds me of a saying about Herod the Great, It's safer to be Herod's pig than his relative..

Full compensation to mining companies is not mentioned

being silly anyway. Small scale Black companies would
not have the capital to develop the new mines anyway nor
would they take on the risk. They would also have to buy
exploration work on the property. After Mzi Khamalo's
disaster with JCI, I dont think anyone can scratch
together enough Black investmnet money to go this
route. Why do they worry about White money in mines
when White Pick and Pay and Checkers shops are

I've taught classes in random probability and stochastic processing as they relate to engineering applications and I can't see how 250 M people can be represented by 511 samples with +/- 4% error.

Any business type out there which can explain the smoke and mirrors regarding these poll results. The representative sampling must be specific for either geography, income, education, etc. If this is so, they pollsters don't tell U that these results represent POOR, inner city, single-mothers that are registered Democrats....... hmmmmm...

read your 8.08. I think you're totally on the money. This whole ME thing
is a diversionary tactic to take the spotlight off Monicagate. Last night on our evening news here in Dallas, the big news was that 3,000 soldiers would be shipped out from Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas ( 300 miles south of Dallas ) . This morning, that deal is supposedly off and soldiers will be shipped out from Fort Stuart ( ? ) in Georgia instead. I don't think that the powers that be have thought this thing through. As soon as US soldiers start coming home in body bags, B.C's popularity ( if it really does exist ) will drop like a stone.

The Chaostan site on the bnet, developed by Richard Maybury, has excellent info.

He has long admonished the ownership of the physical PMs as well as mining stocks. He also recommends a War Portfolio.
He feels and I follow his thinking, that the Straits of Hormuz can and very likely will be a deathtrap for our military.
One Cruiser or other medium sized ship can block entry or egress if sunk at the right place.

Now, that's an information standard. It's never going to happen on this planet. Too many of the natives have tom toms. Regarding the apparent Public Relations success of BC: are you familiar with the French expression peeing in the soup ?

Last night there was a wire story on here about the Japanese MITI officials and how they were going to Indonesia to get the facts. I signed off wondering what the Indonesians would show them. They have already used up the bats out of the soldier's mouth trick on Cohen. Then it came to me: they still have not revealed the new assays on Bre-X.

But I'm still scratching my head over the Russian story of strategic platinum reserves. I mean, if you produce 15% of the world's total, why do you need a strategic reserve ? But, then the Americans, the world's leading silver producer, have a silver strategic reserve. So, it all makes good sense after all. I just know in my bones that somehow Buffett is going to sell his silver to the USG someday to replenish the American strategic silver reserve. Who else can he sell it to and avoid the transaction costs of assay and refining ?

Australia has just decided to help Clinton bomb iraq. Idiots

so has canada .... looks like the bombing gang is gettin bigger ..... reserve a seat now for the big event!

I sure hope Klington can win this war !...... ( wonders aloud whether the US has managed to implant smart bomb targeting technology on Saddams rear guard? )

Saddam will cave in. I dont think he likes the idea of being a dead martar. He prefers others to be dead martars for his cause.

this is all being done to get his disgusting behavior in the white house off of the front page, imvvvho.

well maybe he might cave in but when you begin to send out the wedding invitations ( to all these other allied countries ) it's kind hard to cancel the wedding ...if ya knows what I mean :}

after a certain point you might as well get married instead of suffering the embarrasment!

The way minipulation of the public is on full display right now. All tricks are being tried by the whitehouse. A trader has a lot to learn from this

new battle cry of the republic .... let's bomb the buggers!

let's see ....a camel jock against the USA and it's allies ,,,,, I wonder who will win?

the start of the gulf war is just one example, though probably the best, of the news fakeout. right around the 1994 bottom, there was a constant stream of stories that north korea was about to nuke seoul and invade the rest of the country. it was a quite credible threat, too!

It will be interesting how Clinton claims victim status from this camel jock?

Saddam has turn to old technologies to fight the battle.... I hear he has replaced his entire airforce of Russian made planes with a brand new fleet of flying carpets!

he's just doin his job protecting the folks of the USA how did he put it the other day?......he just showin up for work cause he's being asked to do so

The people elected him to do sumthin ..... it's just too bad he can't figure out what the sumthin is :}

The victor gets to rewrite history. Star and Saddam will get a bad rewrite.

sometimes I really wonder who has more inteligence .... all those poor Iraqi soldiers who are prepared ( at gunpoint ) to die for allah ..... cas acording to them allahs the greatest ...... or middle america who is gonna buy the threat to national security vomit ....sheesh

yes i agree Clinton is calling for a bind faith in him from his true believers, Which is no different to a those poor iraqi soldiers prepared ( at gunpoint ) to die for alah.

it's personal now ...if Saddam manages to personally survive this ordeal without losing his head ....klington is out

really amazin how a little bit of sex on the oval office carpet brings out the urgent need to level a country

..........and turn the loser into a hero in the polls

Exactly. Mind you several dictators like Castro have come out in support of Clinon in controlling the free press. So if he cant get saddam he will just have to sack the press of the country and replace them with whitehouse aids ;- )

oh well I guess there is a silver lining in all this... the defense companies will get to test out some new smart technology ..... the ones who's stuff checks out the best will be rewarded with a huge jump in their stock price ......... faites vos jeux messieur/dames

if it were really smart technology .... it would require only one tiny weenie missile .... one that could track down and destroy only one person ....Saddam ....instead of murdering probably thousand of innocents not to mention leveling the entire country

but then again....there would be no real story to write ....and it wouldn't get the focus off of klintons indiscresions

I wouldn't like to be lewinsky ....she is gonna have to live with thousands of Iraqi lives on her conscience

the wonderful thing about destroying all the evidence is that they will never be able to prove that Saddam had any chemical weapons in the firstplace!

.... apart from a couple of arosol cans of raid I mean

I only klington could figure out a way to get lewinsky into bagdad when all the fun begins.... like send her on a peacemaking mission to see Saddam...... I bet she would make for a really good expendable casualty:}

I can see the newsreports Lewinsky died in the patriotic service of her country....her presence will be sorely missed by the president

he is trying tom demonize Star. His only chance now is to declare Star an enemy of the state and that all his evedence should be handed over to Hillary for a fair investigation.

I think hillary could probably do a great job of rearranging Starrs anatomy:}

I wonder if Disney has worked out any plans to create a theme park on bagdad wasteland

now here's an idea ....If hillary could get Starr to depose lewinsky in Bagdad ... ( I'm sure Saddam would probably showup for the fun ) .... Klington could really work out a great solution to his current problems:}

BOOM!!!!!!!

....and allah would really be akbar!

there is another strategy, i believe, which clinton is working on to save him -- the economic one. there is surely some behind the scenes strongarming of greenspan to lead and join in a worldwide irate cut campaign. i think this will get underway soon, and all we need are a few weak econ nos to get it started.

On a more technical note today once again the targeted area for the DJIA is 8340 .... we have about 48-72 hrs to get there or I will agree the upmove may stimy itself for a short while ....

the look and smell of this animal still looks to be most bullish for the time being although the european markets ( especially the FTSE ) seem to be taking a small brief respite from their blistering performance......again watch the FTSE for major directional changes

The gulf war was most dammaging for the USD back in 1990 could be a similar situation taking shape

klington ....guilty as sin

lewinsky ... knows klington is guilty as sin but as the sinnie is in an awkward position

Hillary.... knows bill and monica did it in the oval office but thank god she is a forgiving person:}

Starr....knows bill & monica did it but would be much more confortable with the videotape porno bill made with flowers

Saddam.... last seen constructing a 300 meter deep bunker beneath a bagdad orphanage

Canada........ has announce it is comming to fight at the side of the USA and has dispatched the HMS Toronto with one elderly Sea King helicopter on board.... to quote the TGM would add nothing to the strike capability of the already considerable US armada in the gulf

I sure wouldn't like to be in charge of reading Saddams palm these days.....it seems his lifeline seems to stop abrubtly

then again klingtons political lifeline seems to reflect the same pattern

Hillary must be dreaming about where she'd be today if she weren't married to that idiot

the idiot must be wondering which prison he'd be in if he were not married to that smart woman

The ongoing rapid growth of the money supply was of particular concern to some members, but beyond that it was

observed that overall liquidity conditions in credit and capital markets belied the supposition that the real federal funds

rate is too high.

Despite fears of what the Asian crisis might mean, the FOMC met in a buoyant financial atmosphere.

Continuing the 1997 uptrend, revised M2 grew another $5.3 billion in the week ended Jan. 26 -- an annual rate of

6.8%, compared to the Fed's 1%-to-5% target range. M3 grew $5 billion, an annual rate of 9.5%. Lending activity,

particularly in the business and real estate sectors, has been zealous as market interest rates have come down. And

stocks have returned to near record levels. The U.S. dollar, meanwhile, has come down considerably from recent highs.

rsk #1 silver / gold has been in a bear market for so long that people laugh at the very idea that these investments could do anything but go down. That's why Warren was able to buy up his line when everybody else was doing something else. # 2 History shows us that when Warren Buffet buys you better buy then ask why..... he rarely makes mistakes ! I had a chance to buy Wells Fargo when a friend told me he was buying in - I didn't ! Then the story came out and wham!! I lost out. He still holds and it still is a profit. Silver is headed somewhere profound and I don't really know where but it's going up in the long term.

FORMER PNG PRIME MINISTER DIDN'T
READ SANDLINE CONTRACT
Tuesday 10 February, 1998 ( 8:00pm AEDT )




Papua New Guinea's former Prime Minister, Sir Julius Chan
has told the second inquiry into PNG's mercenaries crisis
that he never read the Sandline contract until after the
military aborted the deal.

Sean Dorney reports that Sir Julius took the witness box for
the first time today in the second inquiry which has already
been running for five months.

Questioned by ex Brigadier Singirok's lawyer about
differences about what the Sandline contract provided for
and what his cabinet had approved, Sir Julius said the first
time he saw the contract was during the first Sandline
inquiry after the mercenaries had been deported. Sir Julius
said his main priority had been to end the war .. reopening
the mine was not his chief aim. He also claimed that he
had stressed to Sandline's project director, Tim Spicer, that
he did not want mercenaries on the front line. The contract,
signed by the then deputy prime minister Chris Haiveta,
provided for 40 frontline mercenaries to render the rebels
militarily ineffective and reopen the mine.

More info on the left wing elements pressing for
nationalization of mineral rights.
The green paper seems to be about unutilized
mineral rights in mining companies' hands reverting
to the state for use by small black miners ( sort of like
dwarves ) .
For a little background mineral rights have always
been unclear even under the prior government. Mining
houses use to pay a lease fee and a mining tax - this
never hurt much since was deductable from company tax
anyway. it mainly created work for accountants.
This new creature is an attempt by the energy
minister - ( NOW catch this ... UNDER PRESSURE from
FOREIGN COMPANIES ) to get the RSA mining houses to
release some of their widely held resources for sale
to overseas interests. Black empowerment is the
straw man argument to make it all go down OK in the
press ( if they ever take much of an interest ) .
This same little jerk quoting analysts who
said this was like nationalization, also wrote the
famous kitty story.
RSA is like this .. When its easy on your nerves,
its gonna be hard on your wallet. When its hard on
your nerves, forget it and count your money. The
minute that people go bullish be very afraid - sell.
So watch TZA-shriek - when he buys his first RSA

Myrmidon, as you can see, Amax has been a hi-cost producer given the hefty levels of debt incurred to open its various mines.

However, under this deal, essentially all that debt is wiped away in exchange for equity. Thus, with the stroke of a pen, Amax mines are now, in effect, lo-cost mines ( average $180 an ounce ) .

Although Kinross shareholders suffer dilution, the combined entity is now a much more potent force in the industry...and an even more attractive target for merger with another major down the road. If the market recognizes this fact, then there should be little if any significant diminution in Kinross share price...maybe even a share price gain?
Ultimately, Kinross share price will be determined by the spin financial analysts put on the entire deal.

Kinross, Amax to merge

Deal creates 5th-largest gold producer in North America

Tuesday, February 10, 1998
By Allan Robinson
Mining Reporter

Kinross Gold Corp. has arranged a merger with financially troubled Amax Gold Inc. to create what will be the fifth-largest gold mining company in North America.

The merged mining entity will have annual production of 1.2 million ounces of gold and a market capitalization of about $1-billion ( U.S. ) , the companies said.

For Robert Buchan, the chairman and chief executive officer of Kinross, the merger will thrust the company he founded to the forefront of North American gold producers from the middle of the pack.

With the decline in gold prices, Amax Gold has been hurt by the amount of debt it has taken on to construct its new gold mines.

The new gold producer will continue to be called Kinross and remain based in Toronto, with Mr. Buchan assuming the dual role of chairman and CEO.

Amax Gold of Englewood, Colo., is 58.8 per cent owned by Cyprus Amax Minerals Co., a Colorado-based company with interests in copper, molybdenum, coal and other metals. After the merger, Cyprus Amax will own 31 per cent of the new Kinross.

John Ing, president of Maison Placements Inc., said the merger continues the trend toward consolidation in the gold mining industry. The new company will have about 270 million shares outstanding and gold reserves of 10 million ounces, he said.

Amax Gold is an attractive target because of two key mines. Mr. Buchan said the Fort Knox gold mine in Alaska is expected to produce about 383,000 ounces of gold at a cash cost of $175 an ounce; and in Russia, the Kubaka mine is expected to produce 460,000 ounces of gold at $185 an ounce. Gold traded yesterday at $300.60 an ounce, up $1.80. Gold recently hit an 18*-year low of $278.30.

Kinross has relatively small mines, which produced 500,000 ounces of gold during 1997, in Canada, United States and Zimbabwe.

Following the merger and financial restructuring, Kinross will end up with $183-million in debt and $94-million in cash. One analyst estimates the new company will have a cash flow of about $100-million a year.

But before the merger can proceed, Cyprus Amax has agreed to invest $135-million in Amax Gold by forgiving debt of $73-million and injecting cash of $62-million. In return, it will receive 35 million shares of Kinross.

Kinross will strengthen the balance sheet of the new company by contributing the $190-million ( Canadian ) in cash on its balance sheet. Also, an underwriting syndicate headed by CIBC Wood Gundy Securities Inc. has agreed to acquire in a bought deal an estimated 11-per-cent stake of the new company for $122-million ( U.S. ) , 34,653,465 shares of the new Kinross at $5.05 ( Canadian ) a share. The cash will be held in trust until the merger is complete and the money has been dedicated to paying down debt of the merged company.

Without that [bought deal], I wouldn't have closed the merger deal, Mr. Buchan said. You now have a bullet-proof balance sheet and an ability to grow the company.

In the merger transaction, about $335-million ( U.S. ) of Amax Gold debt will be eliminated.

Yesterday, the shares of Kinross closed unchanged at $5.25 ( Canadian ) a share on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Amax Gold shares closed at $3.31 ( U.S. ) on the New York Stock Exchange. The shares were halted for the merger announcement and did not resume trading.

Under the merger deal, each share of Amax Gold will be converted into 0.80 of a share of Kinross common stock. The new company will have an average cash cost of production of about $210 an ounce from its 12 mines in the United States, Canada, Chile, Russia and Zimbabwe.

The deal is subject to approval from both companies' shareholders.

farfel (@MYRMIDON...AMAX OBTAINS VIABILITY...THATS WORTH A LOT!) ID#28585:
My buddy Myrmidon...Amax is a fairly high cost producer that, in linking with a lower cost producer with a huge cash stash, will become a much greater and more powerful entity.

Instead of running to Cyprus Amax for regular infusions of cash and guarantees on bank loans, etc., in order to keep its head above water, Amax Gold will now become a part of the fifth largest gold producer in the world. Via rationalization, streamlining, and Kinross economies of scale, costs per ounce of Au at Amax gold mines ( some of which are quite stellar ) should drop greatly, thereby making them much more competitive. Moreover, the great Cyprus Amax will hold a large stake in the new company and be able to provide resources to assist this new entity
just as Noranda provides know-how and financial clout to BMG today.

Finally, the merger sets the first stage in what will inevitably be yet another merger offer sometime down the road, i.e., you can be certain
Kinross will be absorbed into an even larger gold producer ( my guess...within the next year ) . My theory is based on the fact that Kinross itself has been the subject of rumored merger prospects in the industry for some time.

So, Myrmidon, if you're not satisfied with payment in Kinross stock, then with some patience, maybe you'll be happier with payment in who knows, maybe NEM stock?

In any case, without this offer, Amax might simply flounder along. Now, the company is in a position to sweep away past problems ( in the form of cumbersome debt ) and become part of a much healthier company.

THE BEST NEWS: a major consolidation sweep is about to occur throughout the Au industry.

Japan official lashes out at critics of Asia role

By Linda Sieg

TOKYO, Feb 10 ( Reuters ) - A senior Japanese trade official on Tuesday lashed out at critics who accused Tokyo of not doing enough for Asia, and said to cure the region's economic problems it was vital to make a correct diagnosis first.

``No one has really come up with sufficient ideas as to what to do about the problems occurring in Asia,'' said Takeshi Isayama, director-general of the Trade Ministry's international trade policy bureau. ``To solve the problem, you need the facts.''

``The United States is saying Japan should do more, but do they really understand the problem themselves? They are just passing the buck,'' Isayama told Reuters in a telephone interview. ``It is very easy to blame someone else.''

Trade Ministry officials will join others from the finance and foreign ministries in a Japanese delegation set to depart for Singapore and Indonesia on Wednesday, in an effort to find out what scope exists for Tokyo to do more to help Jakarta out of its protracted economic crisis.

The move comes amidst criticism that Japan -- the region's heftiest economy -- has not taken enough of a lead to help Asia solve its financial woes and that its own stagnant economy is a major obstacle to regional recovery.

Last month, U.S. Trade Representative Charlene Barshefsky called Japan's efforts to end the economic crisis in Asia ``absolutely inadequate,'' while Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin said Japan had ``obviously'' not taken enough measures to invigorate its ailing economy.

On Monday, Malaysia's Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim also urged Tokyo not to use its domestic woes as an excuse for not doing more for the rest of Asia.

MITI's Isayama said a key priority of the delegation to Indonesia would be to figure out the facts, determine the extent to which Indonesian authorities have the situation under control and what further measures they plan, and see whether additional steps being considered by Japan would be effective.

``It is not the case that we have no idea what is going on...and there are various possible measures, but their effectiveness depends in part on the Indonesia government, so we have to know their stance,'' he said.

Isayama also said a Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi proposal to create a rupiah stabilisation fund that would allow Indonesian firms to exchange rupiah for U.S. dollars at a much stronger rate than its current level was ``one idea.''

A Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi senior official told Reuters that if companies in Indonesia could exchange the rupiah at around 5,000 to the dollar, most would stay in business.

The rupiah traded around 9,000 to the dollar on Tuesday morning, down more than 70 percent since the regional currency crisis started last July.

The Japanese delegation is expected to spend seven to 10 days in Singapore and Indonesia, and will likely return home just ahead of a meeting of Group of Seven ( G7 ) finance ministers and central bankers at which the Asian crisis is expected to be a key topic.

Japanese government officials have said that decisions on additional help for Indonesia would be made after the delegation returns to Japan.

Japan is Indonesia's largest creditor, with Japanese banks accounting for 39 percent of Indonesia's $53.7 billion in foreign bank debt as of the end of June 1997, according to the Bank for International Settlements ( BIS ) .

Tokyo took part last October in a $43 billion International Monetary Fund-led rescue package for Indonesia by promising to contribute $5 billion should the need arise.

Wow is not word enough. And get this, WSJ, I think it was, publishes an article on how currencies should be valued according to an information standard. Talk about optimism.

Regarding Reuters story: it was one thing for the CB's to manage the price of gold and indirectly the price of oil and the inflation perception. It is quite another when the dividends of the rich are put in jeapordy. I think influential investors in South African mines should be reassured, as intended.

Preacher - I'm with you. They don't have the stockpiles. If they did what would they gain by announcing it now? I can think of some reasons to they would want the market to think they had it though.

Does everyone remember the big US company that bought a boatload of palladium in Japan for delievery this spring last June? The price was below $200. Who was on the other side of that trade? Platinum is a subsitute for palladium in alot of industrial applications. I think it would easier to drive the price of Platinum down then Palladium right now.

Remember the 800,000 ounces that hit the market just before Christmas? Many thought that was the end of the Russian stockpiles. Maybe that was suppose to be the 1998's sales - now they have none. Did anyone find it strange how quickly the market swallowed 800,000 ounces? About 6-7 weeks. I figured the market would stay depressed for 3-4 months after this large supply hit the market.

Also, where are all the people telling me to sell the news? Or in this case, buy the news. They sure were out in force last week concerning silver.

What I was referring to, was the Prez trying to talk ( BS ) his way out of a War situation compared to a domestic political/legal problem.

I don't believe he can just twist the English language around and expect to get out of an international screw up. Where an entire region of the World goes crazy. And where they don't call English their first language.

The US military is spread so thin. I find it real interesting that nobody is talking about N. Korea. Talk about a part of the world with Bact, Nuc, capabilities, sheesh.

I have given a great deal of thought to profiting from the misery I see so soon to be a part of all our days. So far my best denial rationalization is that I have been thinking of protecting my family and friends with the metals from the global currency debacle, that if they get bumped up further because of political and military madness I had nothing to do with creating either of those two things.

I just reread that last paragraph, and well, if you tell me it is BS, well, I can see your point.

For Oris
MY brother .. I appreciate your guiding me to post
on Russian Platinum.
I have first problem where that article says norilsk
produces 25% of worlds platinum when Johnson matthey
report platinum 1997 ( in my left hand now ) says Russia
produces a little less than 15 %.
Since you saved my skin several times in the desert
and on the dwarfland border, I owe you many debts ( not
to mention introduction to Absolute and recipe for
teboulleh and tomato salad ) I certainly believe exactly
what you say about 2 sets of books, as this russian
practice even extends to RUSSIAN restaurants. I believe
Russians have stockpile of palladium ... but I have a
problem with a russian PLATINUM stockpile and big
platinum production figures ( more problem with stockpile ) .
Can you check out that 8-10 mill oz stockpile. It
is the kind of stockpile I would come up with if I
wanted to reasure offtakers or discourage projects in
other countries like Australia.

I did not invent the term Kitco's Queen.
It was given to me by someone who despise me.
I think it was ORIS, but I am not sure.
You can verify it by going throughout the posts.

I just thought it was funny,
and I adopted it.
It was my sense of humor,
I did not realize that it will upset you.
I apologize, and I will never use this term again.
I totally forgot that you are a Canadian,
and I never thought about the British Queen.
We Americans are totally removed from such subjects.

Re: this Red Alert Intelligence Service
I do not know who they are.
I was the first person to post them at Kitco.
I was not aware that others are posting them around the Internet.

I have connections around the world.
One of my friends in Israel sent it to me
and I thought that they are excellent.
I posted them a few minutes after I received the information about them.

If they are spreading so fast on the Internet
is it possible that they are really good ?

I absolutely did not realize that you felt that I am advertising them.
I never advertised anyone, and I never received any money from anyone with connection to the Internet.

My decision to expose our Kitcoits to this news service proved to be correct as even JIN told us tonight that I provided him a better info than he can give me about his country.
Other Kitcoits responded very enthusiastically too.

I promise to ‘’’clean’’’ my posts in the future from any possible hints regarding advertising.

Something niggling my memory, so I went back to check. Here
is the why Arab states signed on to Desert Storm--and why
there will be NO 'backing' this time around:
Foreign Affairs, Winter 1990/91
The Summer of Arab Discontent, Fouad Ajami, Majid Khadduri Professor of Middle Eastern Studies, John Hopkins:but the highest ulema of the religious establishment ruled against the conquet of Kuwait and the ruler of Baghad. In late August, one of Egypt's most authoritative ulema, Sheikh Jadd al-Haqq, issued a fatwa ( a ruling opinion ) that denounced Saddam's invasion of Kuwait and sanctioned the Saudi invitation of foreign forces. The tyrant has to be contained, the influential Sheikh wrote, lest his tyranny spread. The gulf states had a right to ask for foreign assistance to protect themselves against a treacherous brothr.

Saddam has been more careful this time round. And our President is going
to paint us into the proverbial tight corner.

Folks,
I know a gentleman in Canada who has been to Norilsk many times. This man is quite knowledgeable about mining operations. He has been asked twice to take control of Norilsk and run it like it should be run.
He has declined saying there are four different armies who claim to own it and I won't touch it until they get that straightened out.
I say all that to say this: It seems hard for me to believe that Norilsk has secretly been producing double the amount of PGMs than reported.

To many loose ends. I don't have any comfort that they know what they are doing.

Kuwait is the only regional help - big deal.
They are a heck of an easy target. And we are going to put our $80 Billion Stealth fighter/bombers there, I think. Doesn't sound to smart to me.

Iran has our ships in their sites.

One can't BS his way out of War either, once he is in it, he better know where he is going.

Oh well there is not much we can do about it. All we can do is sit back and watch this thing unfold. I am worried about the terrorist problem. I have family in possible harms way.

I did not think this was advertising for them but that it is a global update much like the Yahoo, Reuters, USA Today, etc postings many make on the network. I do not know these intelligence people except from this network. They offer a free e-mail server system for their geo-political analysis. They do not appear to have a slant or bias politically. I think they sell more indepth services and computer security if you are interested.

There is alot of free analysis for the taking much like Vronsky's site. They are not selling the product which is being posted here.

As to how it relates to gold, many think that geo-political instability causes increase in the price of gold. I feel these people do a pretty fair job showing the potential precursors to regional and global instabilities.

Again, it is your ball so you get to make the rules, but my vote is that it is worthwhile.

It's just the opposite of what you may think.

Production was always in full strength.
Official lower figures were reported to keep prices
relatively high. Only a part of production was
sold through the state channels. At the same time
the rest of platinum ( unaccounted ) was delivered
through non-official channels to trusted friends-traders
abroad, to get instant cash.

Now, when foreign banks are really interested
to invest +permission to sell direct by Norislk in
pending and will be probably granted, some of the real
figures are revealed.

Just a thought.

Have I got a story to tell to you. Five years ago I invested in a variable annuity, Golden American Select. Hoping that the metals would turn some day I put 75% into hard assets and the balance into money market. The portfolio increased 33% in three years and then stagnated. Just several months ago it shot up by 50k and just as suddenly dropped by 60k, which is where it is now. I will continue to hold on because I have no other choice. I will not invest it into any equity funds because the market in equities is due for a substantial correction. IMHO. I'll tough it out a little longer.

Thinking the market for hard assets was finally turning when it shot up I was euphoric and then just as suddenly it dropped like a lead baloon. I believe the bastards saw what was happening and put a stop to it in no time.

In the meanwhile, Im sitting here at my terminal, smoking a good cigar and sipping on a Corona. I really could'nt be happier.

I believe your line of thought had some validity until recently. The
Big Boys, as you call them, are well into the process of losing control. A good example is the lack of cooperation Clinton is getting from around the world in enforcement of a United Nations resolution.
Things are about to start unraveling around the world and unfortunately
we are about to experience some unrational things. I'm usually a very positive, upbeat person but what I see just over the horizon is definetely not positive and upbeat. If we, as individuals, do not start taking precausions now the future, I'm afraid, does not offer alot. I do not want to be one of the unfortunate people standing in a soup line or worse. Hang in there Pete, just for a while longer. I hope I'm very, very
wrong and my lock box remains just a place to visit once in a while.

As for me, Too busy counting profits made on Harmony
to bother to read or respond in depth.
Few comments..
1. he mentions inflation .. PPI fell to lowest in
about 20 - 24 years.
2. Cosatu trying to attract attention to themselves
as they actually losing membership and forces in
government clearly wish/plan to dump them.
3. their worries about loss of jobs in mines is real.
They lose power as a by-product. Despite obvious
simple math that show RSA mines with 50 -100 $/oz
advantage over NA mines, you DONT hear this in press.
Tzadsheek cant make numbers, neither can NUM. They
both BELIEVE what they read in press. Meanwhile,
rsa mines continue terminate workers- grow more
efficient. Marvellous snow job.
4. Kinross/amax ... forced because of high average
costs .. Someone starting to wake up.. they cant
stay viable otherwise.
