What do you say to them? A: I feel the same impatience, however my expectations are based upon an extremely bullish set of facts.

Its principal asset, the Silver Sands Project in Bolivia, has the potential to become a world-class silver operation in the future. We aren’t the only ones optimistic on New Pacific Metals and mining in Bolivia in general, as two prolific primary silver producers have sizeable interests in the company. These two important strategic shareholders are Silvercorp and Pan-American Silver, which hold a 29.80% and 12.1% interest, respectively. Pan-American currently has one operating mine Bolivia and may be looking to expand further into the country when conditions permit (it is currently digesting the sizeable acquisition of Tahoe Resources). Regarding Silvercorp, there is some overlap between the companies-namely the Chairman and CEO for both companies in Rui Feng, who personally holds a 7.8% interest. Further, Silvercorp doesn’t have anything of substance in its development pipeline, and the Silver Sands Project could fit the bill. The Silver Sands story is still very new as it was only acquired in July 2017, for $40m, yet quite a bit has been accomplished. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Thursday, February 7th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 9.0pt; line-height: 107%; font-family: 'Verdana',sans-serif;"><img src="/sites/default/files/article_image/NUAG%20Logo%20-%20Feb%207%202018%20%28002%29.png" width="320" height="88" /></span></p><p><a href="http://orums.silverseek.com/commentary/new-pacific-metals-17574" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 07 Feb 2019 14:35:16 +0000 David Morgan 17574 at http://orums.silverseek.com COT Silver Report - February 5, 2019 http://orums.silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-february-5-2019-17572 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> COT SPECIAL PUBLICATION SCHEDULE Reminder -- The last COT report was published on December 21, 2018.

This is a bullish sign, as silver has soared in the past once rising prices reach critical mass in attracting new investment capital. Silver looks to be nearing that point again. Despite a good finish, 2018 was a rough year for silver. Its price slumped 8.6%, way worse than gold’s -1.6% performance. And that still masks miserable intra-year action. At worst in mid-November, silver had plunged 17.3% year-to-date. That was 2.2x gold’s comparable loss, and at $13.99 silver languished at a major 2.8-year low.
