Gold’s Monetary Rehabilitation

Alasdair Macleod and Peter Tallman return as this week’s guests on the radio program.

A quiet revolution is taking place in a monetary vacuum developing on the back of the dollar’s eroding hegemony. Maybe it’s too early to call what’s happening the demise of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, but there is certainly a move away from it in Asia. And every time the Americans deploy their control over global trade settlement as a weapon against the regimes they dislike, nations who are neutral observers take note and consider how to protect themselves, “just in case.”

Alasdair provides some examples of how Asians in particular are using gold to protect their national sovereignty and how that may be impacting financial and commodity markets. Geologist Peter Tallman now sees Klondike’s mother lode target as being geologically akin to the Yukon’s Kamanak Gold deposit that was sold for $500 million to Goldcorp. He explains exploration plans to unlock value for shareholders.
