All serious gold investors know the Carlin Trend of Nevada is one of the most prolific gold producing regions of the world. Is it possible that there is an undiscovered district, not just a deposit, within that region that was missed by the majors? Jon Awde, CEO of Gold Standard Ventures, discusses how spectacular drill results have guided Gold Standard Ventures to focus on creating the southernmost mining district of the Carlin Trend—the Railroad/Pinion District. At more than 40 square miles, the district is large enough to potentially sustain a mid-sized producer. In this interview with The Gold Report, Awde describes the unique challenges of proving up a series of deposits that are in the shadow of the majors and for the first time all combined under one company in a single mining district.

Ed Sterck: Russian Sanctions May Have Utilities Squeezing Less Juice from Uranium Supply
Source: Tom Armistead of The Mining Report  (4/29/14)
Russia is a commodities giant, but supply isn't the major issue—enrichment is. With a 44% global market share, Russia's enrichment industry allows utilities around the world to squeeze more juice out of fewer lemons.

That's how Edward Sterck sees it, and the uranium mining analyst for BMO Capital Markets predicts a supply deficit by 2018.

In 2010, rare earth and specialty metals market froth had speculators throwing money at a sector they didn't understand, and opportunistic resource company managers stepped up to take their money.
