@MiningBookGuy #Egypt - This Well-Positioned Gold Nation Is Granting Its First Licenses In 7 Years http://piercepoints.com/mining-investment-exploration-gold-egypt-licensing-round-nubian-shield-ethiopia/ @PiercePoints #PiercePoints #ArabianNubianShield #gold #Ethiopia #Sudan #index Nice little write-up from @PiercePoints, I was only aware of this from his twitter feed in the first place. As mentioned before, this is good for all companies in #ArabianNubianShield, but #Egypt news especially good for $AAN & $CEE $CEY.L & $STI.L. Interesting note to bring up $NEM, didn't realize their #greenfields focus is #Utah #Guyana & #Ethiopia. I'll need to look into that!

@hunter via #PiercePoints #DaveForest http://us7.campaign-archive2.com/?u=ebe67e65b2ddb6385ac79bbb3&id=90390a6916&e=4e19138086 Indian government is looking to drop gold import duties to 6%. A significant reduction from the current 10% import tax.  This past Monday, the Singapore Exchange unveiled its first sharia-compliant gold futures contract. Which is designed to meet all requirements for Islamic finance -- allowing buyers in the Muslim world to get into this market. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-islamic-finance-gold-idUSKBN1490VH Malaysia-based HelloGold has launched a sharia-compliant online platform using a mobile app. The firm has partnered with Asian retailer Aeon Credit Service to offer the product to Aeon's 20,000 employees in Malaysia, and plans to extend this to Aeon's 4.5 million customers in the country by February. "We expect to sell about 10,000 ounces of sharia-compliant gold by the end of next year,"  Gold miners also got some more good news this week -- in the emerging exploration destination of Nigeria. Where mines minister Kayode Fayemi said the federal government has secured $150 million from the World Bank to support a national mining investment fund.

@hunter The China Railway Corporation said this week it has launched the first-ever direct rail freight service between China and London. Isn't China also building rail across S America?http://tinyurl.com/jfy8vdg #PiercePoints #silkroad #china #russia #stans #copper

@MiningBookGuy @DJS - I just caught this post from you: https://ceo.ca/aufrica?f0dee5c16bab It was in the #AUfrica room, but NOT the ~AUfrica panel (it's confusing!). Thanks for copying the content, and I'll add the link and a bit more: Did Africa's #2 Gold Nation Just Suspend All Mining Projects? http://piercepoints.com/mining-investment-exploration-ghana-license-suspension-small-scale/ #Ghana #gold #Africa #ArtisanalMining @PiercePoints #PiercePoints I still like #Ghana as a jurisdiction, but this obviously isn't good news. Remains to be seen how much it affects 'small scale mines' vs 'all projects', as Dave said here: "But officials did not confirm whether the licensing suspension applies just to small-scale mines, or to all projects. Leaving open the possibility that new projects may be completely off the table for the time being." IF ANYTHING, it's almost surely a boost for #Sudan to climb up to #2 in overall #gold production in #Africa, which most people are still completely unaware of. I will keep pounding home the point that #Sudan is the 'big surprise' of the last few years in the #gold world. I am very biased on this point with $ORG ...but it really is worth mentioning, because they have this great slide in their recent powerpoints that is directly related to 'Africa gold production' rankings: http://cdn.ceo.ca/1cfh8fv-Top_Gold_Producing_Africa.png+ This is the type of news that starts to get people to question a long-time, leading #gold nation ( #Ghana ), and quietly builds interest in an emerging one ( #Sudan ).
