Western Editor Matthew Keevil welcomes the Mercenary Geologist, Mickey Fulp, to the podcast as a guest co-host to go over some of the major events in world economics and politics. We get some insight from south of the border on Donald J. Trump’s presidential victory and the unexpected impact on commodity prices. Discussion includes: falling gold prices, surging copper futures, and commodity price reports by “big banks.”
Mickey also discusses his new-found interest in zinc investments, and unveils his own version of the Geology Corner, where we discuss the importance, and technical details, of oxide copper deposits.
Bonus: Matt digs into his recent editorial on the changing of the political guard in Canada’s Yukon Territory, wherein Sandy Silver’s Liberal Party unseated the incumbent Yukon Party. What impact could it have on mining?
