It's about Venezuela, it's on this link and here's a chunkette of it:
Instead of helping us expose the facts about what is happening there, you participated in a fraud, you participated in the cleansing of the reputations of a few of the thousands of people who have diverted billions of dollars from the people of Venezuela into the pockets of a very few rich bullies.
Here's the link dated Sep 27th (i.e. today) and in case it accidentally gets pulled or changed like, here's a screenshot:
Yup, that headline (and topline of story) says the Los Azules copper project owned by McEwen Mining is in Chile.
Newsflash: It's not.

Personally I think it must be a mail from a fake account, or perhaps someone's compromised Bekzod's mail account at PCY. After all, any real Biz Dev Mgr would understand the concept of public domain material and therefore...
"The Public Records Office in Colombia, in comments to AP, makes it clear that the "birth certificate" at the centre of the growing scandal is a obvious forgery; the dates are wrong, the number on the paper belongs to somebody else and the person who supposedly emitted the certificate had already been retired for two years before it was signed, making the forgery pretty darned obvious. And right on the heels comes Maduro with his first statement on the birther story just a few minutes ago, saying that the Venezuelan right wing (i.e. Capriles, now with a large plate of huevo splattered all over his cara) had been taken for a ride by a demented ex-senator from Panama."

...has just been sent to subscribers, an hour and 10 minutes before the opening bell on this Friday morning. It has words in it.
The rarest of article; something worth reading in The Miami Herald. Here's a snippet
His explanation was starkly frank:
“From Washington’s perspective, the Brazilian government is not exactly friendly. By definition and history, Brazil is a friendly country that sided with us during World War II and Korea, but its present government is not.”
"The production of Bolivian coca has multiplied fivefold since Evo Morales became president, and the outlet for that substance is Brazil."
...or put another way, this:
You may be wondering what this NR from Prophecy Coal (PCY.to) this morning is all about:

UPDATE: And don't miss out on the follow-up in the series, when PCY.to asks IKN to take this post down.
Here's the report, here's how it starts:
Chuck Jeannes, president and CEO of Canadian miner Goldcorp (TSX: G, NYSE: GG), believes that additional investments in Argentina will be "very difficult", given the complications the mining industry faces in the South American country.
Speaking at the Denver Gold Forum, Jeannes said that working in Argentina "has not been easy," as the company has had to deal with government, monetary and labor issues.
..was sent to subscribers, post-bell Wednesday. A bit of news.
He was offered gold at U$1,200/oz. And hey, who can resist a bargain these days, right?
Barkerville explains all, here.
...gold dailies and a quote from Reuters. Here's the chart...
...and here's the quote (from here):
"We are seeing very slow demand as people are still bearish," said Peter Fung, head of dealing at Hong Kong's Wing Fung Precious Metals. "They are waiting for prices to fall below $1,300."
By my eye on that chart, those waiting for sub-1.3k look likely to get their wish.
Favourite heckles were: "You stole my pension, Brown!", "You're a bigger bastard than Blair!" and "Where's the gold, Brown?", which particularly infuriated him. Sometimes he could not help shouting back.I like that.

The pep talk progress report on Wednesday morning
The shiny new COO announced the same day
The cool drill results next day Thursday Sep 19th
The longer version of the Buenaventura (BVN) speech is on the 20 minute presentation here.
The shorter version:
- Conga is delayed
- Chucapaca doesn't work at this gold price
- We got this little thing we're working on
- We need to buy something fast
UPDATE: The full speech in English has just been published by the official General Assembly channels, find it here on this link.
IKN is keen that you understand just why Honduras as a country is totally fucked and will continue to be so forever
The Presidential candidate for the Partido Anticorrupción (Pac) (The Anticorruption Party), Salvador Nasralla, considers himself "a messenger of God" to "save Honduras".
He said, "I am a messenger of God. God has a purpose for every human that is born and God's mission for Salvador Nasralla is to be President in order to choose honest, God-fearing people to make the changes that the country needs."
I liked this, from Orvana Minerals (ORV.to) today:
"In addition, initial work on the marketing study has indicated that transportation costs will be significantly higher than the $25 per tonne estimate contained in the Feasibility Study with a low end of the range of approximately $100 per tonne if the smelter(s) are in North America and a high end of the range of approximately $200 per tonne if the smelter(s) are in Europe or Asia. While external parties have expressed interest in off-take agreements, no agreements have yet been finalized pending financing and a final construction decision."
