February 07, 2020

As February kicked off with a week of difficult news, there were still bright spots of optimism for precious metals investors. In this edition of the Weekly Wrap-Up, Eric Sprott and host Craig Hemke take a deep dive into all the gold and silver news you need, including:


  • The one story you should be following closely right now
  • What the latest CoT and jobs reports mean for precious metals
  • Plus: Eric’s thoughts on the mining shares

“First of all, just to remind the listeners, I think the first time you and I mentioned this was two weeks ago. At that time, there were two hundred cases—in the world. There is thirty-one thousand now. That’s one hell of a big increase in two weeks’ time. And I’ve seen artificial intelligence numbers that suggested that by March 15 we could have 2.5 billion cases and 53 million deaths. That’s just an extension of numbers, that’s not my prediction.”

Hello Craig and Eric! I just had a quick question in regard to Jaguar Mining as it relates to their most recent drill results. Would Eric have any thoughts with respect to what this may mean for mine life extension? Best Rich

What does Eric think of Golden Predator's cyanide-free pilot testing being performed on their 3 Aces project, and do you see this technology as possibly being used in other companies that Eric has stakes in?

Re Jaguar . In the fall Mr Kennedy was brought on as a director,instead of praying for higher prices to make this work(jag). What if you asked him to take a look at the other side..cost/legitimate expense this Irish wolfhound would leave no stone unturned ,food for thought.. Cheers Doug
