In The IKN Weekly this weekend...

...a report on your author's four days visiting the Royal Road (RYR.v) assets in Nicaragua. Planes, cars, canoes, mules, rains, rocks and toñas. Out Sunday evening, si Dios quiere. A la orden.

Kirkland Lake (KL): Money talks and BS walks

Do you see the scales-fall-from-eyes moment when the metals market suddenly realizes the wisdom of Makuch? Do you see the retro-justification of Eric Sprott gaining serious traction (a man who knew fark all about the KL deal before it struck that Monday morning, totally and embarrassingly left out the loop by the exec players who didn't want fussy uncle butting in)?

Nope, me neither. Al the column inches in the world can't disguise the bloated wankery behind this deal, Paulson wants his print and the DGC BoD get their juicy change of control bonuses. And the mining industry stubbornly refuses to grow up. And if the biggest and splashiest deal of the year is based on scratch-back dealmaking, may the good Lord help the rest of them.

Youtube here. A lovely shade of green.

The Friday OT: Crowded House; Weather with you

For Teemoh.

Blog back with several vengeances next week. Youtube here.


Not a good year for the Jewhating scum

First Bob Moriarty, now Jeremy Corbyn.


The IKN Weekly, out now

Yes I know it should be something with the number 550 in it somewhere, but I'm going to break the rules just for one week. For secret reasons. IKN550 has just been sent to subscribers. Remember the Alamo.


The Friday OT: Deadmau5; There might be coffee

This afternoon, Spotify informed me that I'd listened to this song more than any other during the course of 2019. As it's absolutely ace damn holy moly brilliant, I'm just going to pat myself on the back for having the most exquisite taste and be done.

In The IKN Weekly this Sunday...

...we will be talking Minera Alamos numbers. Oh yes.


IKN would like to send its sincere thanks to Frank Giustra...

...for making Frank Holmes look fucking stupid.

Nicely done, Shortstack.

Bob Moriarty is losing his grip on reality

Right here right now on CEO ca (index), he (his name there is "fingerprint42") is now trying to make out that I asked him to publish the jew-hating and that I'm the Jew-hater. Sorry guys, not true, just like every other unsubstantiated accusation that comes out of the fetid mouth of that serial liar, racist, bullyboy and fantasist.

Though I have no idea who or what "IK" is. Anyone?

However, we see the same Modus Operandi from this bigoted shitbag every time. Dare to mention that he's a Jew-hater and he'll come back with the brouhaha and make up all sorts of shit about you, too. Try it! It's fun and you get to see the real Bob Moriarty, a screwed-up and hate filled old man.

PS: It's really easy to accuse someone of securities fraud. I know, I've done it to other people enough times. However, when I take that very serious step I make sure I have plenty of evidence at hand in order to prove such an accusation. Bob Moriarty does none of that and what's more, he can spend the next five years searching if he likes. There is no evidence because there is no fraud and there never was, it only exists in the dubiously functioning brain of Bob Moriarty.

UPDATE: Seriously, he is losing it completely, these are the ravings of a lunatic. Nobody got fired for anything because this whole scene is utter fantasy, it only exists in his mind and now he's ingesting something and adding chapters. If he weren't such a racist shitbag I'd start feeling sorry for him, this must be embarrassing for his sycophants.

(btw Bob, not reading you directly, your "fans" are sending over screenshots)

UPDATE 2: And now Bob is offended, poor thing. Just not fair when they push back at you and spit your lies back into your face, is it Bob?


HIVE Blockchain Technologies (HIVE.v): Goodbye

And they couldn't even be bothered to get the grammar right:

During the second quarter of fiscal 2020 and subsequently, Bitcoin market conditions for miners worsened as coin prices declined while mining difficulty and network hash rates increased, reaching a record high. This combination resulted in the Company’s cloud mining operations, which operate on a fixed cost basis, becoming unprofitable. As a result, the Company has suspended 200 PH/s of its cloud mining capacity at the beginning of October. It is currently reviewing various factors, including market conditions and the halving of Bitcoin rewards anticipated to occur in May 2020 and it’s anticipated impact on legacy ASIC miners, and reviewing its options for this cloud mining capacity as well as its plans for its other 100 PH/s of cloud mining capacity, the initial contractual term of which expires at the end of calendar 2019.

The top three most visited IKN posts this week are... reverse order:

Third Place: "Sexsomnia and the moral superiority of mining executives". And an ex-Canaccord guy, you say? Oh now, there's a surprise. Good to hear that Boreal canned him.

Second Place: "If you weren't aware that Bob Moriarty is a jew hating shit...". If your idea of a moral leader for life advice is a hate-filled bigot and bully who'd be happy to see the end of a whole people, then Moriarty has the final solution for you.
First Place: "The chilling effect of this ill-conceived Kirkland Lake $KL Detour Gold $ deal is bad news for the mining sector". The most hit page by a mile. Somebody has to tell you just how bad this Paulson character is for the wider mining industry.
