Precious Metals4Gold's Shocking New "Pick and Shovel" Play
Ever since humans realized the intrinsic value of gold, we've constantly searched for - and perfected - ways to find more.
From early methods like panning and trenching, to lode prospectors hunting for rock outcrops and veins, to the invention of drill bits...
In modern times, we use increasingly sophisticated tools and techniques, such as seismic sensors, magnetometry, and gravimetrics to help locate potential gold deposits.
But, after thousands of years of digging for gold, the low-hanging fruit's already been picked. Most remaining deposits are becoming increasingly difficult to find, and increasingly low grade.
Now, a surprising, brand-new gold prospecting tool may be in the offing - one that's far less technologically demanding, and much less invasive.

But there is one country whose "democratic" approach to gold ownership will allow its people to survive a currency crisis, literally, in fine style.
Not only that, but this country's people are giving their government a whopping black eye for its heavy-handed ways in the process.Here's what's going on there...

Precious Metals16The Other Precious Metal Can Double Your Money Now
At times like this, gold and silver typically grab all the attention... and attract all the "safe" money. But there's another metal that could blast past both of these, virtually overnight.
That's because it has unique physical properties for which there is just no substitute - something its biggest consumers lose quite a bit of sleep over.
It's 15 times more rare than platinum... and 30 times more rare than gold.
And, as you'll see in the chart below, it hasn't been this attractive in 13 years.
We're looking at a 70% gain on this one - perhaps more - no matter how far Washington kicks the "debt can" down the road.At current prices, it could even double...
Precious Metals1Silver Prices Today: CFTC Closes Manipulation Case After Five Years
