@ekim#russia intends to sell another 8% of Alrosa #diamonds over the next couple of years. -- http://tass.com/pressreview/909708
The Russian government intends to sell an 8% stake in Alrosa, 35% of its shares in VTB and 25% of its interests in Russian Railways, as well shares in the country’s nine largest companies over the next three years, according to the draft privatization plan for federal property in 2017-2019
The government also plans to reduce its share in Alrosa’s authorized capital by 8% to 25% plus one share by 2019.
@racker#China’s Xi Jinping embraces a new, powerful role http://qz.com/842119 "Since the US presidential election, Xi has held a flurry of meetings with global leaders [from #Colombia, #Ecuador, #Russia, #Japan, #Philippines], including some historically ignored by China’s top official in the US’s own backyard. China has also swiftly become the new, and surprising, voice on climate change."
@Leon@Dan0@bullionaire - In my view people are giving way too much emphasis on #Trump and his economic announcements, totally missing the time-frame, funding, state indebtedness, #China and Saudi Arabia dumping U.S.bonds on lower prices, global economies in decline and an unchanged geo-political agenda. I'd say even worst, if I see NATO partner #Turkey changing sides towards China's "One belt one road" to Iran, away from the EU and in new alliances with #Russia .. In this context, the referendum in #Italy on Dec 4, state elections in the Netherlands, France and Germany and strong right-wing movements in #Europe are looking like a picnic ;-) #gold#chaos
@Excelsior#Uranium Prices Hit A 12-Year Low Due To Feds And #Clinton Cronies
ANDREW FOLLETT – 11/02/2016
“….Uranium prices have been continually falling since the 2011 near meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant, which caused public opinion to turn against #nuclear power. In early 2011, uranium was trading around $70 a pound.
Today’s low uranium prices are also partially due to the DOE dumping vast swaths of uranium onto the market to fund its operations, lowering the price enough to harm the U.S. uranium industry. Since 2011, DOE has sold off roughly $1 billion of publicly-owned uranium through private sellers without overseeing the transactions, and research by the Government Accountability Office found DOE did not did not properly value uranium sales or adequately assess any impact on the commercial uranium market.
Another major factor is that environmentalists and left-wing politicians have used alleged environmental risks to cripple the #American uranium industry, allowing foreign producers, especially #Kazakhstan and #Russia, to flood the American uranium market. As a result, American uranium mining is on the decline as a result of the extremely strict regulations, with fewer new holes drilled and expenditures for new land, exploration, and drilling declining 22 percent, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).
American commercial nuclear reactors doubled their purchases of Kazakhstani uranium in 2014, largely due to the decline in the amount of the American uranium industry. Kazakhstan alone now supplies 23 percent of the uranium for America’s nuclear reactors, according to the EIA…”
@Goldfinger"He spoke Turkish like a Turk, no Arabic accent." Turkish intelligence/secret service officer who was on a mission. He's dead now so we will never know the exact motives, regardless $Russia will be pissed that their veteran Ambassador has just been gunned down by someone who was supposed to keep him safe.
@newstracker#Russia – Russia called the killing of its ambassador to Turkey on Monday “a provocation aimed at disrupting the normalisation” of foreign relations between two countries and the “peace process in Syria”.
- Both countries condemned the assassination as an act of terrorism with a Russian delegation set to arrive in Turkey today to work on a joint investigation into Mr Karlov’s death.
- Mr Karlov was shot on Monday by a former riot policeman disguised as one of his bodyguards during a photo exhibition at Ankara.
- #Turkey remains in a state of emergency following a failed coup in Jul that led to tens of thousands of arrests in the following months.
@NewtonI listened to the #JimRickards interview again on #RealVision. At 24Min mark he mentions that #Russia defaulted on ruble-denominated debt in 1998 in addition to external debt. Now, why would you do that? ... Interesting question!
@nicholaslepanThe Egyptian government is considering signing a currency swap agreement with #Russia, following in the footsteps of its agreement with China in October, an senior Finance Ministry official. #China and #Egypt on December 6 concluded an 18 billion yuan (US$2.62 billion) three-year bilateral currency swap, a move that importers and economists said would facilitate trade and improve foreign currency liquidity in cash-strapped Egypt. http://www.egyptindependent.com/news/egypt-plans-currency-swap-russia
@MiningBookGuy@Brendan - i'm on board with $ARL.AX (thx @PamplonaTrader!)
While I'm still learning more about the nickel-cobalt deposit, I think $ARL.AX has an opportunity to do a new study that focuses on higher-grade cobalt sections. But the real story is "what happens if SHTF in the $DRC?" This is a real concern... same type of concern for #platinum in #SouthAfrica, #palladium in #Russia. Take note that $SBGL was shrewd and bought $SWC BEFORE massive disruption. IF something goes wrong in #DRC, I think it's natural to look for SCALE in SAFE jurisdictions...not tiny, high-grade #cobalt plays. There's real grand-slam potential here because of #geopolitics. $ARL.AX is going to get more attention.
Anyway, I'm on board with that part of the story. But $ARL.ax is intriguing for other reasons @PamplonaTrader brought up. Keep in mind they have an advanced #gold#zinc project and early stage nickel exploration, all in #Australia. Basically, 'going beyond cobalt', $ARL.AX is intriguing for many reasons. But the cobalt aspect (and ridiculous valuation) pulled me in
@mike@botafogo nor the CIA Sarah Abdallah @sahouraxo 18m18 minutes ago
Wow. CIA's UMBRAGE project allows the agency to stage cyber attacks and make it look like #Russia is responsible. False flag par excellence!
@LeonLondon-based bullion broker Sharps Pixley, formerly owned by Deutsche Bank, has suggested that #Russia's #gold reserves could overtake #China's by the end of this year. Here's the final takeaway: "..both China and Russia see gold as an important element in the global financial system. China has reportedly called for gold to be included in the basket of currencies which makes up the #IMF's Special Drawing Rights (SDR). Certainly Russia's President Putin is a gold believer. The Chinese hierarchy is perhaps a little more circumspect in its open support for gold, but both nations are keen to see the US #dollar dominance of world trade - particularly with respect to #oil and #gas - depleted and see gold as one of the tools for helping them achieve this objective." www.sharpspixley.com/articles/lawrie-williams-russias-gold-reserves-could-overtake-chinas-this-year_264838.html
@GoldfingerWatch $Russia. Putin has historically crushed dissent with tough prison sentences and assassinations. A bit tougher to do when millions are involved in dissenting....
Navalny gets 15 days jail and fine. Lets see what happens when he gets out.
@GoldfingerYou can see how quickly the Russian state mobilizes, very powerful police force and secret police forces and they are aggressive. Very much unlike Middle Eastern countries which saw revolutions after Arab Spring. People quickly overwhelmed unmotivated police and military in Egypt for example, only die hard regime members kept fighting when it was clear the will of the people was behind the revolt. Also US had strong influence in Egypt. US has little influence in $Russia and Putin has a strong and numerous base.
