  1. WEIRD ! Good investment, but... GCM buys a company for 1/6 or 1/7 of its Free Cash flow value, and its stock price drops from C$6.19 to a year low in Aug. of C$4.50, -27.3% GCM Mining delivers robust PEA for Toroparu gold and copper project in Guyana, with $1.7 billion free cash flow ( Note: GCM bought about 52M shs. On Mar.13th, the day of the T/o announcement the price was C$6.19, x52M = C$321M = US$258M cost for GLDX ) $1.7B / $258m= ratio 6.58, a gain of 6-fold would be impressive.

  2. GCM.t: Name change* and... PEA announcement... Lombardo Paredes's Gran Colombia Gold Corp. (GCM) had a good day, adding 10 cents to $5.12 on 778,000 shares on a revised resource estimate and preliminary economic assessment of its Toroparu project in Guyana. The company now lists 185 million tonnes measured and indicated at 1.42 grams of gold and 1.01 grams of silver per tonne, plus 0.097 per cent copper. A further 13.8 million tonnes are inferred at 2.74 grams of gold and 0.4 gram of silver per tonne, plus 0.08 per cent copper. The company said that the PEA affirms the economic viability of the open pit and underground mining operations at the Toroparu Project. The PEA assumes total life-of-mine ("LoM") gold production of 5.4 million ounces ("Mozs") representing 88.4% of the 6.2 Mozs of gold fed to the milling circuit at an average grade of 1.78 g/t Au over the 24-year mine life. Average annual gold production is 225,000 ounces over the 24-year mine life. The copper concentrator will facilitate the recovery of 141.3 million pounds ("Mlbs") of copper over its 19 years of operation, the company added. According to a press-release, the PEA delivers solid financial results with LoM total revenue of US$8.0 billion, US$3.5 billion of operating margin and US$1.7 billion of after-tax free cash flow.

  3. Source on Trump 2024 'Veepstakes': 'They're All Begging Me' " "A lot of times, a presidential candidate will pick a running mate to balance out wings of the party, but with Trump, that's not the issue," pollster John McLaughlin told Politico. "He is the party, basically. It's so united behind him. So his choice, if he runs, will come down to what he wants. It would be a much more personal decision this time." Trump had maintained supporters "will be very happy" with his 2024 decision, which is not expected until after the 2022 midterm elections next November. Trump has hailed himself as a political outsider, which he can no longer be considered, but he still is not beholden to traditional politics." > https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/vp-runningmate-2024-kristinoem/2021/11/29/id/1046629/ LIST: "They're all begging me," Trump reportedly boasted to an anonymous adviser, Politico reported. "They all come here." Some potential vice presidential candidates include former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Sens. Tim Scott, R-S.C., Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, former acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell, and former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows. Scott and Pompeo recently interacted with Trump at Mar-a-Lago, sources told Politico. "It was a really warm interaction," a Republican observer told Politico of Scott's visit. "Scott was appropriately deferential without being gross, like some people are.

  6. THE FICTIONAL METAVERSE cc His 1992 novel, Snow Crash, published just as the World Wide Web as we know was coming into existence, imagined the online world, or Metaverse, as a virtual gathering place, one where people could adopt new identities that both departed from and expanded on their offline selves. It was a space for invention and reinvention, both technological and social, in which businesses, entrepreneurs, scammers, criminals, and even some relatively ordinary people went to play, make money, find friendship, and generally escape from their offline lives. Although the particulars were different, it functioned a lot like the internet as we know it today. Stephenson wasn't the first or only science fiction writer to envision something like the internet: In the 1980s, William Gibson gave us the early language of virtual reality in Neuromancer, and, in Ender's Game, Orson Scott Card concocted a future in which online news nets allowed anonymous young columnists working from home to shape global politics—essentially, blogging. Throughout the decade, cyberpunk authors (who are somewhat distinct from the cypherpunks) gave the coming connected world grit, grime, and attitude. But Stephenson's idea was that the internet would be a place, a virtual space with formal rules and unspoken conventions, somewhere people would go to hang out and spend time, that it would have culture, or rather a lot of cultures, clashing and colliding and mixing with each other, just like people and cultures do in the real world. The internet wasn't just a technology for delivering and organizing information; it was an entirely new world existing in parallel to, and on top of, this one. And one of the most prominent features of the place was that it would allow you to reinvent yourself; to be better, stronger, stranger, or more powerful than you could ever be in real life. Denizens of the Metaverse took the form of digital avatars—stylish figures that they controlled. Low-quality public terminals made the experience accessible to everyone, but those with the means could pay to upgrade the visual fidelity of their experience, creating a world of high and low culture, and strivers trying to make the leap from one tier of society to the next. What Stephenson understood before almost anyone else was that the online experience, which allowed for both anonymity and a departure from the physical constraints of meatspace, would upend the idea of a fixed individual identity. Being online meant the possibility (if not the guarantee) of being free to be someone else. In the decades since Snow Crash, Stephenson's freewheeling, anarchic vision has paid real world dividends, not only in the broad contours of the way it predicted the evolution of the internet and online culture, but in specific applications, especially with regards to virtual reality (V.R.), and its even-more-promising cousin technology, augmented reality (A.R.), which seeks to create a second virtual layer on top of the existing physical universe. In 2018, Amazon released Sumerian, a platform for the development of A.R. and V.R. software; its name was inspired by Snow Crash, which posts ancient Sumerian as a kind of ancient, biological programming language. In addition to writing novels, Stephenson also works as "chief futurist" for Magic Leap, a major augmented reality startup that has received more than $2 billion in funding. It has long been rumored that Second Life, a proto-social network built as a sprawling, three-dimensional virtual space, was modeled directly on Snow Crash's Metaverse. > https://reason.com/2019/06/05/if-we-told-you-neal-stephenson-invented-bitcoin-would-you-be-surprised/

  8. the MATHS of Coliving - Some formulas Right! This guy brings some MATH into his calculations. If I get round to looking at an actual investment, I might want to try his formula How to convert multifamily buildings to COLIVING and increase returns His Formulas: + Window space matters: 10 feet of window space for each bed + Corners reduce maximum BR's + Bed to Bathroom ratio, should not exceed 3:1 + Revenues Do not scale directly with number of bedrooms, because higher density will bring lower rents

  10. Wallbridge Mining Details Mineral Resource Estimates for Fenelon, Martiniere Deposits; Shares Down 17% 11/10/2021 (MT Newswires) -- Wallbridge Mining Co. Ltd. ( WLBMF ) Overnight Tuesday released its maiden mineral resource estimate for its Fenelon gold property and an updated estimate for its Martiniere property, both within the Detour-Fenelon gold trend in Quebec. The company, which dropped 17% in early Wednesday trading, said the estimate for Fenelon has an indicated resource of over 2.1 million ounces and an inferred resource of nearly 1.5 million ounces. The Martiniere property meanwhile has an indicated resource of 543,700 ounces and an inferred resource of 256,200 ounces. The two properties have a total combined indicated resource of nearly 2.7 million ounces grading 1.91 g/t gold, and a total combined inferred resource of over 1.7 million ounces grading 1.69 g/t. Both gold deposits remain open in multiple directions laterally and at depth, indicating significant expansion potential, Wallbridge Mining ( WLBMF ) The company intends to launch additional drilling to add to the released resources and to identify new mineralization elsewhere on the gold trend. > https://www.fidelity.com/news/article/company-news/202111100950MIDNIGHTUSEQUITY_A2539195
