This episode is all about base metals, with the latest developments in iron ore, copper and zinc. But the biggest news of all is the imposition of sanctions by the U.S. government on Russian aluminum giant Rusal, whose shares immediately dropped by more than 50%, and the turmoil this has created in global aluminum markets.

Plus, a look at the past month of trading of mining stocks on Canadian exchanges and a new episode of Ric’s Picks.

A big thank you to our regular podcast sponsors the Yukon Mining Alliance (www.yukonminingalliance.ca) and the Grosso Group (www.grossogroup.com).
