We’re back with a mega-commodity outlook special that takes a look macroeconomic conditions heading into the fourth quarter of 2017.

Matt reads through Scotia Capital’s massive, 65-page commodity update and ponders the supply-demand scenario for recent base-metal all-stars, copper and zinc.

The situation isn’t looking pretty for uranium markets, but the buzz remains for key minerals in the electric vehicle and lithium-ion battery markets. And it wouldn’t be a commodity special without commentary on gold prices!

Meanwhile, Lesley returns with the latest and greatest edition of the Geology Corner. This week we discuss the major questions investors should ask about geophysical anomalies. Lesley sits down with Greg Hodges, a senior geophysicist at Sander Geophysics — an international airborne geophysical survey firm for more than 60 years. She counts down “7 Main Geophysics Points.”

Bonus: Matt overuses the verb “hop”.
