NEWS

Short newsletter this week. Gold is trying to break out and run for $1000! Warmer weather is making us itch to get out and do some prospecting. In case you haven’t been online and onsite, you will find the change we have been talking about for months. Wish I had the weekend to work on it, but I have to go and sell emeralds. I know, I know. SOMEONE has to do it and it might as well be me. LOL! The jewelry comes in nice buttery 18K gold and is really remarkable.

I was reading that the Thai’s are selling their family gold to keep their heads above water with the inflation rate there. It’s getting melted down and shipped off to better markets, as most people there are selling and not buying.

Have you heard the rumors going around about us beginning another mini ice age? I’ve been hearing bits and pieces for about a month now, and the charts seem to bear this out. Could be all that talk about global warming might be short lived if we continue to cool off globally. What’s up with the earthquake in England? Indonesia, yeah, but ENGLAND? How long has it been since that happened?

3 weeks until the first day of Spring. Can you smell it in the air? With mid 60’s and low 70’s this weekend, we are both bummed that we BOTH have to work. I’ll put up some more thoughts early this next week.

World Open Panning website has this year’s world wide panning competitions listed and they add more all the time. A great site to visit: http://www.worldopenpanning.homestead.com/ .

Until next week……
