The Difference Between Signal and Noise

Dec 3, 2022

I have no idea of how many people write professionally about investing in resource stocks and the metals. I am well aware that there are tens of thousands of punters expressing their opinions on the various chat boards. Most of them are idiots. But then many of the professional writers are idiots, too, trying to feed people’s fantasies. That’s what you get from TV preachers and all politicians (with perhaps the exception of Alberta’s Premier and Pierre Poilievre)

I write books about investing and then I pretty much give them away. You can pick up Nobody Knows Anything and Basic Investing in Resource Stocks for $.99 in the electronic version. If you can’t afford the $.99 you probably are wasting my time and yours because you are too stupid to understand simple concepts. So I will go over it one more time.

There is signal and there is noise.

GATA, conspiracies, gold and silver manipulation, Bill Murphy, Ted Butler and all of the cliptocurrencies are noise. Nothing they say will ever put a penny in your pocket unless it is by accident. There is no time in history where any of them issued both an accurate buy signal and a sell signal that was based on either facts or logic. You can howl at the moon all you wish about how Crimex is stealing but all you are doing is whining.

You can’t make money from noise. Saying that gold and silver are manipulated is akin to saying the sun rises in the east. All financial markets are manipulated and always will be.

Signal on the other hand is based on both facts and logic. If you will bother learning the basics and have any ability to think for yourself you can make a lot of money from the chumps whining about Bitcon and Crimex. I go into it in detail in my two investment books and if you haven’t read them, it means you are the chump that my readers and I will profit by your stupidity.

I did an interview on September 1st and talked about silver. Silver touched $17.56 as the low.

(Click on images to enlarge)

Fast-forward three months and now we had silver at $21.66 on November 24th where it touched a high of $21.66. Between September 1st and November 24th silver climbed 23%. That’s a great move and silver is even higher today but I wanted to show the November 24th price for a reason that I will get into.

I said a month before silver and gold hit their lows that it was coming. I nailed the bottom in silver; gold drifted lower for another four weeks but clearly bottomed on September 28th. For three months I have been trying to convince my readers that low prices are an opportunity. How much simpler can it get?

Stocks go up and down.

When they are cheap you should buy and when they are dear you should sell. It’s in the frigging books. The only people I know who make money on a consistent basis are contrarians. All you have to do is determine what the mob is doing and do the opposite. It is so simple most people can’t come to grips with the concept. Measure the sentiment. When everyone is bullish, you should sell. When everyone is bearish, you should buy. Low prices are not a problem, they are an opportunity.

My favorite sentiment indicator is the DSI that happens to be on sale until December 15th. As valuable as it is, there are other sentiment indicators that may provide other information. I like the $BPGDM chart of the Gold Miners Bullish Percentage Index. It gave a clear signal of a bottom at the end of September just in time to nail the low in gold.

Another signal that I observe but rarely see a clear and convincing signal is the Premium/Discount chart of the Sprott Physical Silver Trust. I used that chart in 2011 to pick the top in silver to the day and when I looked at it recently I saw something very exciting. If you look at the two-year chart it seems that just recently the PSLV is selling at the biggest discount in over two years. In other words the traders in PSLV were highly bearish.

On November 25th the PSLV was selling at the biggest discount, 5.12% since the crash of 2020. Do you remember what silver did after that signal in March of 2020 during the Covid fiasco crash? It went from well under $12 an ounce to almost $30 in the next eleven months. That’s a 150% gain in silver. You almost never see those kinds of moves in the metals. The PSLV is giving a similar signal today but from $17.56.

The low point on that chart is November 25th.

There are few people I track the predictions of mainly because I don’t want to confuse myself. But one of the people I have a ton of time for is Tom McClellan of The McClellan Report. Here is part of what he said just yesterday.

December 01, 2022

Gold prices have moved up by almost $200 off of the October lows. Ordinarily that would bring a response by investors to start buying into GLD and IAU, the big gold bullion ETFs. But they are not doing that (yet), and that is really interesting.

The normal behavior by investors is to buy into these ETFs when gold is rising, and sell out of them when gold prices fall. Extremes of either buying or selling can be useful indications of a sentiment extreme, worthy of a top or bottom for prices. That is how things normally work.
. . .

Given the big jump in gold prices since October, we should expect that public sentiment toward gold should be turning more bullish, but it is not. Investors are still avoiding these ETFs, which means that their bearishness is more firmly rooted. That is actually bullish for gold prices, because to get a top for gold prices we would expect to see investors clamoring to get into gold. They are not at that point yet, which conveys the message that gold is going to have to trend higher for a lot longer to get sentiment to change.

I did find it exceptionally interesting that one of the smartest people I know has come to exactly the same conclusion I have. If you would like to fund your retirement you can do that in the near future. You merely need to learn to think for yourself and understand how contrarian investing works. Figure out what the mob is up to and do the opposite. It’s that easy.

Riverside Resources Receives US$2,500,000 in Cash and Retains 2% NSR Royalty for the Sale of the Tajitos Gold Project to Fresnillo PLC

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 30, 2022) – Riverside Resources Inc. (TSXV: RRI) (OTCQB: RVSDF) (FSE: 5YY) (“Riverside” or the “Company”), is pleased to report it has signed a definitive sale and royalty agreement with Minera Fresnillo, S.A. de C.V. (“Fresnillo”) a wholly owned subsidiary of Fresnillo PLC for the sale of Riverside’s Tajitos Gold Project (“Tajitos”) located in Sonora, Mexico. Riverside will receive a US$2,500,000 cash payment and retain a 2.0% NSR (“Royalty”).

The Tajitos Gold Project is located less than 30 kilometers from Fresnillo’s Noche Buena mining operations. Riverside’s Tajitos Gold Project includes the Tejo and Tajitos mineral concessions covering 45 km² of prospective ground next to Fresnillo’s property (also named Tajitos).

Riverside’s President and CEO, John-Mark Staude, stated: “This transaction adds another quality NSR to our growing royalty portfolio and brings our cash position to more than C$8,000,000, which puts us in a great position to grow our business during 2023-2024. We are pleased to deliver another deal with a high caliber international mining company, which is a testament to the quality of projects our team has generated and Riverside maintains in our property portfolio.”

Transaction Details:

Riverside will receive a payment of US$2,500,000 from Fresnillo and retain a 2.0% NSR. Fresnillo will have, for a four-year term, the option to buy back half of the 2.0% NSR for a payment of US$1.5M. If enacted, then Fresnillo would have an additional three years to buy back the remining 1% NSR for another US$1.5M. If Fresnillo does not exercise its first buy back option during the first four-year term, the Royalty will no longer be subject to any buy back provisions. The NSR covers the entire Riverside land package and a full NSR Agreement has been agreed upon and included in the signed contract between the companies. If Fresnillo wishes to reduce mineral claims, then the Company has the first right to retain those mineral tenures before they are dropped.

Riverside remains focused on its 100% owned projects, within its portfolio in Canada and Mexico, and its alliance with BHP. The Company is also always working towards potential incoming additional alliances and partnerships.

Collective Mining Significantly Expands the Main Breccia Discovery at Apollo and Drills Near Surface High-Grade Mineralization Including 168.6 Metres at 2.91 g/t Gold Equivalent

  • Drill hole APC-17, a significant step-out hole to the north, intersected two zones of mineralization within the Main Breccia discovery at the Apollo target. The shallow zone, which was intersected directly below where the Main Breccia daylights at surface cut the following interval:
  • The second zone encountered in hole APC-17 cut the longest intercept of continuous mineralization within the Main Breccia discovery drilled to date with results as follows:
  • Drill hole APC-17, which was terminated at 912.8 metres due to rig capacity, bottomed in strong mineralization with the final 2.75 metres averaged 1.56 g/t gold, 9 g/t silver and 0.03% copper.
  • Drill hole APC-18 intersected near surface and high-grade copper-silver-gold mineralization approximately 300 metres to the north of the near surface intercept in APC-17. The mineralized breccia in this zone is strongly overprinted by numerous zones of carbonate, base metal veins with assay results as follows:
  • With the result of step out hole APC-17 and recently announced visuals from step out hole APC-22, the Main Breccia discovery now measures up to 385 metres along strike by 350 metres in width (previously 190 metres) and has been extended down to a vertical depth of 825 metres below surface (previously 500 metres). The discovery remains wide open for expansion and further step-out holes are currently being designed.
  • Three rigs continue to drill at Apollo with holes APC-19 through APC-26 completed and holes APC-27 through APC-29 underway.  Additional assay results are anticipated in the near term.

TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2022 /CNW/ –  Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from four additional holes drilled at the Apollo target (“Apollo”) within the Company’s Guayabales project located in Caldas, Colombia. The Main Breccia discovery at Apollo is a high-grade, bulk tonnage copper-gold-silver porphyry-related breccia target. As part of its fully funded 23,000 metre drill program for 2022, there are currently three diamond drill rigs operating at the Apollo target.

“The intersection of high-grade and shallow mineralization at Apollo demonstrates the excellent metal endowment of the Main Breccia and most importantly, the dimensions of the system continue to expand and clearly point to the fact that we are dealing with a large-scale discovery. It is truly remarkable to drill a 912-metre-long hole that bottoms in mineralization. Finally, the shallow, higher grade intercepts encountered in APC-17 and APC-18 are more than 300 metres apart and confirms that the southern portion of the deposit is where the system comes to surface. As a result, we are about to start construction of a new drill pad located between the two shallow intercepts in order to start defining the shallow portion of the Main Breccia mineralized system,” commented Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman.

Details (See Table 1 and Figures 1–3)

Nineteen diamond drill holes with accompanying assay results have now been announced at Apollo and a further eleven holes are outstanding. The Company recently completed four drill holes; one northerly directed, step out hole (APC-17), to test for mineralized extensions to the Main Breccia discovery, a second shallow hole drilled southwesterly to define extensions of newly discovered mineralized breccia outcrops located in the southern portion of the deposit and two fringe holes drilled at shallow angles to the west of the Main Breccia discovery.

Drill hole APC-17 was drilled approximately due north to a maximum depth of 912.60 metres. The hole intersected three mineralized zones: 72.3 metres of mineralization beginning at 118.20 metres down hole (100m vertical), 11.65 metres of mineralized breccia from 252.6 metres (220m vertical) and another 547.65 metres of mineralization from 365.15 metres down hole (330m vertical) to the end of the hole at 912.80m (825m vertical).  The hole terminated while still in mineralized breccia due to limitations of the drill rig. Total cumulative mineralization in this diamond drill hole was 628.3 metres and is the most mineralization drilled in a single hole to date into the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo. The shallow intercept is hosted within angular porphyry related breccia containing chalcopyrite (1-2%) with pyrite and pyrrhotite and is located directly beneath recently discovered mineralization outcropping at surface. The deeper and longer intercept is also hosted within angular porphyry related breccia with the matrix filled with pyrite, some chalcopyrite and overprinting carbonate base metal veins (“CBM”)The following results are highlighted:

  • 72.3 metres @ 2.57 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 1.00 g/t gold, 28 g/t silver and 0.63% copper (100 metres vertical).
  • 11.65 metres @ 1.88 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 1.80 g/t gold, 4 g/t silver and 0.05% copper (220m vertical).
  • 547.65 metres @ 1.03 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 0.76 g/t gold, 14 g/t silver and 0.04% copper (330m vertical).

Drill hole APC-18 was drilled in a southwest direction and intersected shallow, copper-silver-gold mineralization from 136.05 metres to 304.65 metres with the hole terminating at a final depth of 499.05 metres. The mineralized breccia contains a matrix of chalcopyrite and pyrite is strongly overprinted by numerous zones of CBM veins hosting sphalerite and galena. The hole was drilled below outcrops of breccia mineralization in the south-central portion of the deposit with assay results as follows:

  • 168.6 metres @ 2.91 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 0.98 g/t gold, 69 g/t silver and 0.5% copper (85 metres vertical).

With the result of APC-17 and recently announced visuals from APC-22, the potential total volume of rock hosting the Main Breccia discovery within it has approximately tripled in size with the dimensions now measuring 385 metres along strike by 350 metres width by 825 metres depth versus prior dimensions of 385 metres x 190 metres x 500 metres. The discovery remains wide open for expansion and further step-out holes are currently being designed.

Holes APC-15 and APC-16 were drilled at shallow angles on the western periphery of the main breccia body. APC-15 was drilled to the northwest and intersected mineralized crackle breccia returning 56.05 metres @ 0.57 g/t gold equivalent from 68.6 metres (55 metres vertical). This is a new mineralized area outside of the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo. APC-16 was also drilled outside the Main Breccia discovery to the southwest and intersected 500 parts per million copper in crackle breccia from 200 metres and until the end of the hole at 303.35 metres. The Company believes that both APC-15 and APC-16 may have drilled over the top of the Main Breccia discovery in these locations.

Three rigs continue to drill at Apollo with additional assay results anticipated in the near term.

The Apollo target area, as defined to date by surface mapping, rock sampling and copper and molybdenum soil geochemistry, covers an 800 metres X 700 metres area. The Apollo target area hosts the Company’s new Main Breccia discovery plus a vein system located above and on the eastern flank of the Main Breccia discovery and the Northern Breccia discovery located 250 metres to the north of the Main Breccia. Multiple additional untested breccia, porphyry and vein targets have been generated and will be drilled in due course. The overall Apollo target area also remains open for further expansion.

CORRECTING AND REPLACING: Granite Creek Copper Identifies New, High-Priority Resource Expansion Targets at Carmacks Copper-Gold-Silver Project in Yukon Canada

This press release corrects, replaces and entirely supersedes the prior version published on November 21, 2022 at 4:00 PM ET

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 22, 2022 / Granite Creek Copper Ltd. (TSXV:GCX)(OTCQB:GCXXF) (“Granite Creek” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce results from an Induced Polarization (“IP”) survey conducted on the Company’s 100%-owned Carmacks copper-gold-silver project (“Carmacks” or the “Deposit”) in the Minto Copper District of central Yukon, Canada. The large, highly prospective, potential resource expansion targets identified adjacent to or near the proposed open pits warrant follow-up exploration in upcoming campaigns. The Company further announces it has closed the second and final tranche of the private placement financing described in a news release dated October 5, 2022.

President & CEO, Tim Johnson, stated, “These multiple new zones and targets adjacent to the conceptual open pits, as defined by the March NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate update, further highlight the prospectivity of our Carmacks project. Our team continues to do excellent work at Carmacks and we are confident in our ability to expand known mineralization and make new discoveries in the lesser explored parts of the 176km2 project. The current focus is the completion of the upcoming PEA and we look forward to reporting on the robust economics of the Carmacks project in the near term.”

Survey Overview

The first survey line (Line 1100S) was conducted over Zone 147 to investigate the correlation between known copper sulphide mineralization and the chargeability response from the Simcoe Geophysics deep-penetrating IP survey (see Figure 2 below). Subsequent survey lines were conducted over near-deposit target areas.

The results of the survey were enhanced by Resistivity Scaled Chargeability (“RSC”). RSC is a ratio of chargeability to resistivity (electrical properties measured by the IP survey) with the applied ratio determined by comparing various ratios to known mineralized bodies. The well-defined Zone 147 was used as a model to determine the RSC ratio that best fit the known mineralization. (See Figure 4 below).

Select Results

Line 1100S, surveyed over defined sulfide copper mineralization in Zone 147, established a model for the RSC response and identified a new zone ~920 meters to the west. This new zone, named the Sourtoe Zone, extends 200m south to Line 1300S. This zone has been investigated with soil samples and trenching, exposing visually mineralized material close to surface (results pending). The soils and trenching were designed to evaluate the geochemical and geological signatures of this near-surface IP response and their similarities to known mineralized zones.

Line 1300S shows a potential continuation of the Sourtoe Zone, giving the zone a minimum of 200m strike length as well as a new, deeper target, the 147 Deep Target, several hundred meters below the proposed 147 pit.

Line 1500S, designed to test the gap area between zones 2000 and 147 (the “Gap Zone”), was successful in identifying a significant anomaly that is offset to the west from both zones. 3D modeling of historic drilling shows that this target has not been drill tested and could represent a southern extension of the 147 zone. The Gap Zone Target is a top candidate for additional near-deposit exploration (See figure 4). Additionally, a new, deeper target area that appears on this line and extends to line 1700S has been identified as the 58 Target.

Line 1700S, located 200m south of Line 1500S, shows the probable Gap Zone Target continuing southwards towards Zone 2000 as well as the newly identified 58 Target. Additionally, a shallow anomaly east of the proposed pit is identified as a possible continuation of Zone 4 proximal to the 147 pit.

Line 3300S, the southern most line completed in this survey highlights the potentiality of the area underneath the proposed 1213 pit. Additionally, an anomaly on the western portion of the line has been identified as 1213 west target for further follow up. With the current pit design bottoming out at 180 meters there remains significant room to grow the resource in this area. Additional lines on 200m spacing over the 1213 area are planned for subsequent geophysical campaigns to further define the zone.
