@JamesKwantes Did an interview with Mr. Chris Parry on Equity.Guru TV earlier today. Chris and I worked together at the Vancouver Sun for several years. Topics we touched on included my recent $LUC site visit, #investing, speculating, jr mining, market psychology, we even touched on weed. I think it's available on the website (the interview, not the mary jane): https://www.twitch.tv/equitydotguru This month I'm also offering a $100 discount on both the 1-year ($299) and 2-year ($449) #ResourceOpportunities subscriptions -- so $199 for a year and $349 for 2 years. COUPON CODE: MAY Had $ERD at 0.375 and $SBB at 0.39 http://resourceopportunities.com/subscription-information/

@JamesKwantes Re #diamonds and millenials - have seen a couple of the "Real is Rare" videos & they're not bad. Also synthetic diamonds require enormous amounts of electricity to make. Greener? Maybe not

@dirkdiggler That's really neat @JamesKwantes. I refuse to take my experience too seriously, but then I consider something good ol Bill Shakespeare once wrote: "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

@Iwantmymoneyback @Investorwannabe @jamesKwantes @kib just to create an open conversation; Knowing that electric vehicles will replace diesels >10 years. Hydrogen wont win the battle with electric cars, why would we still invest in platinum/ paladium? Knowing that gold is likely to go much higher looking at debts/ relatively high dollar/ macro economics. Tia

@JamesKwantes Like that $SBW deal unloading its 65% of Skoonka to $WHN for shares. Makes a lot of sense, Skoonka has had some nice hits over the years & gives Strongbow a call option for something they were getting no value from

@JamesKwantes Nice grades on those latest Kennady $KDI results, and interesting to see them touting yellow diamonds. $DDC also pulled out a monster yellow diamond from Misery, 66 carats. Hope they publish a photo of "Arctic Sun." http://www.ddcorp.ca/investors/news-single?id=2275809

@JamesKwantes Couldn't help but notice $KDI's largest 3 stones -- 4.72c, 4.28c & 3.45c -- in that latest NR very comparable in size to 3 largest from $NAR's Naujaat (4.42c, 4.16c, 3.53c). Kennady's parcel was twice the size (carats) of $NAR's as well #diamonds

@ekim Visually better white colour. The fancy yellow statement should have been fantasy yellow as I think Rory is dreaming.

@JamesKwantes Some of the whites are quite nice, yellows not so much. Mind you, North Arrow's rough yellows didn't look like much either. But KDI's look pretty brownish

@0Kib Very interesting. There was a 5m share block that crossed via Paradigm yesterday at a price of 1.13 (volumes shown on CEO are incorrect).Guessing that was our seller unless it was an internal cross. Wonder who this is? Only Teck & John Byrne have such a large shareholding.Any idea @jameskwantes?

@MiningBookGuy @JamesKwantes - just finished my first pass on your epic $LUC article, well done! Just a few 'essential' questions for now: What was the candy that you had to remove from your mouth as you were transitioning in/out of the Lucara diamond showroom? Did you get to finish it off? Or did they confiscate it? @jameskwantes/lucara-site-visit-worlds-largest-diamond-a-gem-of-a-mine

@JamesKwantes Thanks @MiningBookGuy! From eye candy to sweets -- as I recall it was a Werther's, took it from a jar in the lobby of the showroom area. :) On the security front, I think $LUC and probably all the other diamond companies in Botswana hire extensively from ex-military. One of my safari guides who lives in the area was a former soldier (anti-poaching); he applied at Karowe but was deployed at the time they tried to contact him for an interview. Good jobs @jameskwantes/lucara-site-visit-worlds-largest-diamond-a-gem-of-a-mine #Botswana

@MiningBookGuy @JamesKwantes - ah, thanks for the further insights and mentioning it was a Werther! Haven't had one of those in a while...maybe it could have been hollowed out to fit a decent sized diamond in there :P

@JamesKwantes As I was being searched @MiningBookGuy it did make me wonder about the high rollers who come through for the Exceptional Stone Tenders -- royal families etc -- and the level of searching they are subjected to. Bit of a fine line to walk there for $LUC #nobodycavitysearches

@JamesKwantes Re #NorthKorea -- sadly it rings true, @MiningBookGuy. I'm sure Trump would like to go to war against #Iran but they're too strong (too much of a match). Reminds me of the run-up to the second Iraq war -- replace "WMD" with "nuclear weapons" and it's the same playbook #geopolitics

@JamesKwantes There's a flowsheet at the bottom of the link that breaks out how the new Mega Diamond Recovery Unit will allow the bypass of breaking/crushing stages and divert the largest stones directly to hand sorting, @DanO. CEO Lamb thinks the spot where the Lesedi broke is when it dropped into the stockpile (after the "secondary gyratory crusher") and was smashed by a larger stone that dropped on top of it. It's about a 7- or 8-foot drop https://www.lucaradiamond.com/mine-operations-and-exploration/karowe-mine-summary

@CriticalInvestor @JamesKwantes Great read, what is the concept of this MDR unit? How to avoid breaking a large stone when it is inside a big piece of rock and they crush this piece in a few smaller pieces in the first stage? Besides this, how does it feel to hold a stone worth $60-100M? I would get pretty nervous about dropping it I think;)

@JamesKwantes Have heard TH franchises are a licence to print money, but retaining good employees getting paid only minimum wage must be difficult. Don't frequent Timmie's, but I've always marvelled at how a restaurant that seats dozens and dozens can get away with having a tiny cubicle-like bathroom!

@JamesKwantes Once rented out the top floor of a house (in Abbotsford) to a couple guys from Hamilton - Tim Hortons freaks. The one guy built a pyramid of TH empties in the front bay window. Should have recognized it as a bad omen - they stopped getting along and one moved out, so we had to give the other the boot too @Vaughan @stateside
