Mcewen Quote in - Gold Rises on Fed Interest Rate Hike, as Contrarians Predicted Source: Special to The Gold Report (12/16/15)
Last week, Rob McEwen, veteran investor and executive chairman of McEwen Mining Inc.,reiterated the role of low interest rates in keeping the price of gold down, "Interest rates are dragging along the floor and have forced investors and savers to desert their prudent ways and seek riskier investments in a frantic search for yield. . .Too many people believe the government can control interest rates and inflation. People are going to realize that the government is not telling us the truth about the economy, about inflation, about having the economy under control. When that happens investors will rush to diversify and put funds into gold and silver."

It's good to hear that miners are not a 'riskier investment' as they collapsed in share price about 90% the past few years.

It doesn't mean anything, but someone paid Can$1.48 pre-market for MUX.TO.

Hopefully, that will seem cheap by mid January.

stemuliteworks, karmacredit and the Board - Do you guys remember when US Gold acquired Nevada Pacific Gold along with 2 other Companies on the Same Day?

You wonder what thinks of his protégé now?

Unlikely he thinks of him as " pantywaist" or a " boy in short pants.."

You wonder what Rob thinks about his protégé now?

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but look at who recommend your post.
Let's be a little kinder than that to Ian Ball.

Unlikely Rob thinks of him as " pantywaist" or a " boy in short pants.."

Here's just a short piece written on the subject, while sitting by the pool enjoying the Sunshine and 80 degree weather here: (with condolences to benwood)

Not long after US Gold Crop acquired Nevada Pacific Gold, and its property in Nevada and NPG' and its Magistral Gold Mine Claim in Sinaloa State in Mexico, ( that's not just any gold mine claim, the Magistral Gold Mine claim boundary is a very substantial 510 square miles) the Boy Wonder volunteered to go to Mexico, knowing many others in the company had family and would not want to be gone for a long period of time, so Rob gave Ian Ball a $3,000,000 Budget to do some exploration.

So just as to remind everyone here, Ian ball was responsible for discovering McEwen Mining’s El Gallo 2 project, scheduled to become one of the 15 largest silver mines in the world and building the El Gallo 1 gold mine that is forecasted to produce 75,000 ounces gold in 2015.

"McEwen also credits his protégé with leading the team that recently built the El Gallo 1 gold-silver mine five miles south of his El Gallo 2 discovery under budget and on schedule — a rarity in mine construction."

Is it any Wonder they call Ian Mining's Golden Boy.

That link has a Great Story on Ian Ball' Background and how he " Met Rob " in the first place.

Thanks Ian
JW@KSC



Remember too, that Rob thought enough about the young man to appoint him Senior Vice President
