Precious Metals and Mobility

Upcoming event: the IPMI’s European Chapter is hosting a seminar in Prague, Czech Republic, from November 13-14, 2017. Title is a question: “What will our metals’ future look like in Europe?”. I’ll give a glimpse at an upcoming symposium topic on precious metals and mobility and provide some insights into the subject.

Emergency Offshore Summit in Panama

With the “Live and Invest Overseas” conference just finished, the next event is already on the horizon. Lief Simon’s “Emergency Offshore Summit” is aimed at investors worried about the political future of the United States after the elections in November. One way or another, instability may be a result, and the conference focuses on legal precautions private investors have at their disposal to hedge against such effects.

The conference will be from October 24-26 in Panama City, Panama, and I will be speaking on two topics: physical investments in strategic metals, and in precious metals. Let’s not make it one of these:

40th Anniversary of the IPMI Conference coming up!

Just a reminder that this year’s conference of the International Precious Metals Institute (IPMI) is less than a month out. It’s a special one, too, the 40th conference of its kind with an excellent program covering all aspects of the industry.

IPMI Conference Poster

I love this event because it is such a unique opportunity to catch up on current topics and trends combined with the opportunity to (re)connect and network with industry executives from around the world. If you need further convincing, the Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix, Arizona, is a truly spectacular venue.

I will be speaking as the first presenter in Session C at 10:00 am on Sunday morning, June 12, 2016. Session location are the Grand Canyon Ballrooms 9 & 10.

Head over to http://www.ipmi.org for reservations – looking forward to seeing you there!

IPMI’s Educational Videos on Precious Metals Mining and Exploration

Over the past two years, the International Precious Metals Institute (IPMI) produced a series of educational videos on several different aspects of our industry. These videos were made with the input and support of IPMI members, corporations and individuals alike, who contributed decades of experiences to make them worthwhile. Reason enough to present them as a collection for those who haven’t seen them yet, and others who might refer to this blog as a reference point to find them later. I will amend the list as new videos come out, so please be sure to check back periodically. A second set of videos is about sampling. I will add these videos in a separate thread shortly.

Precious Metals Exploration and Prospecting: Gold, Silver and Platinum group metals.

Mining for Precious Metals explained: Gold, Silver, Platinum, Palladium.
