Gold & Silver Confiscation: Can the Government Seize Assets?

When a grab is made for people’s savings, governments don’t bother to confiscate instruments like stocks and bonds and savings accounts—those can be wiped out by simply devaluing the currency. But when times are really tough, governments have “requested” citizens turn over their gold—the one asset they’ve historically been unable to control, since it’s not someone else’s liability.

When a gold confiscation happens, there unfortunately aren’t a lot of viable solutions. If your government declares it illegal to own a meaningful amount of bullion, you’d have little choice but to comply. Either that or play the role of a fugitive—with the prospects of financial penalties, forcible confiscation of your metal, and even jail time waiting for you.

Many investors believe gold won’t be confiscated today because it’s not part of the monetary system like it was during the U.S. nationalization in 1933, under Roosevelt. While it’s true we’re not on a gold standard today, if the crisis gets bad enough any and all viable solutions could be on the table. Debt in all developed countries is unpayable, for example, especially when you add in unfunded liabilities… where could the government get funds to service it all? One source could definitely be gold.

The sober reality is, while lower than in the past, the risk of a gold confiscation is not zero. The world today can be an uncertain place, and what were once “local” issues can rapidly escalate and have global consequences. This does not mean, however, that we are suggesting a gold confiscation is imminent or even probable; simply that it could happen if one or a series of events having significant worldwide implications occurs. Without official gold-backing on most major currencies today, the specific motivation to “confiscate” gold that existed during many previous confiscations barely exists today. But as you’ll see, even that hasn’t stopped modern government’s without a gold standard from doing the same, ostensibly as a form of currency controls to slow down market-driven devaluation.

Gold Supply Is Guaranteed To Fall - Here’s How You’ll Be Impacted

Last week we looked at how silver supply could be dramatically pinched if Indian citizens began an earnest shift from gold to silver. This week we’ll continue looking at supply, this time with gold.

The frightening thing about the coming gold supply deficit is that it doesn’t require an outside force to make it happen. It’s locked in. I hate to use the word “guaranteed,” but regardless of any other development, new gold supply is going down. Worse, there’s little that can be done to reverse the trend.

The primary reason new gold supply will fall is because mine supply is set to decline. And producers can’t easily or quickly increase mine output even if gold prices jump, as you’ll see. This is something I know a little about, having worked in the industry as a mine analyst for a number of years. See what you think…

If You Spend Less Looking for Gold, What Do You Get?

The following charts paint a clear picture of what’s happened to the gold mining industry.

When the gold price was soaring, producers spent lots of money looking for metal. But when the price crashed, guess what they cut back on? Exploration spending was one of the first categories to get whacked, because it’s an easy way to quickly reduce costs when you’re making less money.

The amount of money spent exploring for gold has fallen by two-thirds just since 2012. This is a stunning drop—because if you spend less time and money looking for gold, you will, of course, find less gold.

Here’s proof. Even before the gold price got hammered, check out the trend in the amount of gold that’s been discovered over the past decade.

It’s incredible, but the number of gold ounces the mining industry has brought to market has plunged by 85% in just 10 years.

But it’s worse than this. Not only have many producers cut exploration funds, they’ve spent less on development, too. This basically means they haven’t built the infrastructure needed to produce more ore, for both existing projects and upcoming ones. So even if the gold price shoots up tomorrow, it’ll take years for them to ramp up production and be capable of bringing more ounces to the marketplace.

Because of all this, as well as a lower gold price, the amount of metal that’s currently deemed economic has fallen. The word “reserves” carries some legal definitions, but suffice it to say that it refers to ore that has a high level of confidence of being in the amount the company thinks it is.

Well, look what’s happened to reserves just since 2011.

The amount of mineable ounces around the world has fallen by over a third just since 2011.

Clearly, spending less money looking for gold leads to finding (and digging up) less gold.

This trend is also partly due to what’s called high grading… most deposits have both low and high grade ore, and what management teams usually do is mix the ore to get a more consistent grade running through the mill. Well, when the gold price fell off a cliff, what do you suppose management teams did? Many of them mined just the high grade portion of their deposits. This allowed them to remain profitable at lower gold prices—but what it also did was not only deplete their reserves at a much quicker pace, it left behind low grade ore that in many cases is no longer economic. That’s because it required the high grade ore to be feasible, and now it’s gone. Much of this ore won’t be economic at higher gold prices, and even then miners will be very reluctant to take the expense to dig it up when it’s so low grade.

There’s just no escaping the fact that…

Mine Production is Peaking

Final production numbers for 2016 aren’t out yet, but most analysts agree that the total will be less than it was in 2015. If so, the beginning of the fall in mine supply has started.

But even if it hasn’t yet begun, it’s virtually inevitable that it’ll soon get underway, as the above charts imply.

Every analyst report I’ve read on the topic projects mine supply will fall over the coming years. The only point they disagree on is how soon it kicks in. They all recognize that underinvestment in the industry will have years-long consequences.

How long will the supply crunch last? Credit Suisse estimates that even if the gold price rebounds, supply in 2022 will still be, at best, 4% lower than 2015. BMO Capital Markets thinks mine supply will still be falling “through at least 2025.” (I certainly wouldn’t look to any of these companies for gold price projections—they’re almost always wrong—but they do have armies of analysts working in the mining industry).

And that’s a point worth considering: won’t higher gold prices end the problem? No, for several reasons:

• It takes years to bring new projects on line. Even mothballed projects can’t resume production quickly. It takes time and money and many employees to ramp up exploration, find economic deposits, develop them, and reach commercial production.

• Management teams will be very hesitant to significantly increase exploration and development costs until gold prices are significantly, and sustainably, higher. They got burned over the past few years, and won’t be eager to open that spigot until the gold price is not just high, but looks like it will stay high.

• Even at an average gold price of $1,300, supply will still fall. Every analyst has a different number for the “average” cost to produce an ounce of gold, but the more reputable ones are around $1,200 per ounce (this includes the total cost of mining operations, which is higher than the headline numbers you see companies report). So as you look at today’s gold price, how much money do you think miners are really making? If most can’t turn a true profit until gold is above—and stays above—$1,200, how much money do you think they’ll spend on exploring and developing new projects? The industry won’t come to a standstill, but the point is it’s not going to grow at anywhere near current gold prices.

• This is also true with recycling. Generally speaking, this source of supply needs high gold prices to make it worthwhile for recyclers to run their operations at full tilt. Again, the recycling industry won’t die, but neither will it grow without markedly higher gold prices.

The only scenario that could reverse this trend is if the world reached true economic growth and stability. I don’t know about you, but I’m not holding my breath that that’ll happen anytime soon. The global debt, currency, and fiscal problems all have to be rectified first, and as Mike insists, it’s hard to see how that happens without some sort of major crisis (or more likely crises).

This all leads to one inescapable conclusion…

Hello, Supply Crunch

The decline in mine supply is important, because it’s the single biggest source of new metal coming to the market. So if your #1 source of supply drops precipitously, and is expected to stay down for years, it will naturally have ramifications on the availability of metal.

And don’t think that those arguments about the massive above-ground supply of gold changes anything. Yes, the amount of gold around the world is big, and yes, most of the gold ever dug up is still in existence, and yes, supply only rises by about 1.5% per year.

But when it comes to you and I being able to buy, say, a gold Eagle, those facts aren’t very relevant. Most of that “above-ground gold” is simply not available…

• Are we going to tear down the Sistine Chapel so we can melt the gold to remake into Eagles?

• Will we reduce how many computers and cell phones we manufacture?

• Would you like to dig up corpses at the graveyard to recover the metal in old teeth?

Remember, only about 15% of gold supply goes directly into coins and bars for retail investors (this excludes central bank buying and Indian jewelry). The biggest chunk of that comes from newly-mined gold.

And don’t think you’ll just buy bullion from the existing supply of coins and bars. They won’t realistically be available. If gold prices are soaring, investors won’t be selling—they’ll be buying. This will further reduce the amount of investable gold for us to buy.

Add it all up and here’s what it means for gold investors…

How a Supply Crunch Will Impact You and I (and Everyone Else)

With gold supply set to decline for many years, we should expect to see the following ramifications. Whether they are good or bad depends on if you already own gold—or are still trying to buy it…

1. The gold price will be forced up by this factor alone, regardless of what else is happening at the time. In fact, imagine an environment where Mike’s predictions come true at the same time a supply crunch starts to make headlines.

2. Bullion will be increasingly difficult to obtain and expensive to buy. Premiums will undoubtedly be higher, delivery times longer, and rationing a distinct possibility.

3. Selling during a supply crunch will maximize the profit of early buyers. We will fetch fantastic resale prices, retrieve much of the premium we paid, and have plenty of eager customers.

Selling during a mania? There’s only one other thing in life that gives me goosebumps.

Clearly, if the coming supply crunch gets anywhere near as bad as many analysts think it could, you will be well rewarded if you're already positioned—or hurt if you’re not.

Either way, it will have a meaningful impact on your financial standing. My advice is to buy now, while gold is plenty available and relatively cheap, before the reality that’s staring us in the face starts to take hold.

Silver Investing Manipulation: The Truth On A Timeline

For years, Mike Maloney has talked about how precious metals markets were being manipulated and today we have the proof. Deutsche Bank recently settled a lawsuit accusing it of the rigging silver markets and as part of the settlement the bank released 350,000 pages of documents and 75 audio tapes.

These documents show there was a silver market “mafia” of big banks including Deutsche, UBS, and HSBC all working together to artificially suppress the price of silver and fleece the general public in the process.

In this video, Mike walks you through the historical silver charts and pinpoints the moments were bank traders colluded together to rig the markets. The evidence leaves little to doubt. But as you’ll learn, there’s an upside for silver investors who accumulate physical metals.

Mike Maloney: Fed Endgame Is Inflation

Gold and silver expert Mike Maloney says we have seeing bubbles in stocks, real estate and now in bonds. Maloney contends, “The bond market is in a 35 year bull market, and I don’t know how this can continue on forever. . . . 

I am expecting when this next recession starts, it’s going to be a deflationary event. In deflation and a crisis, you are going to see investors run towards safety . . . and bonds get one last pop. 

They are going to run to U.S. Treasuries and gold and silver. Those are the safe havens. Then people are going to realize, in this rarified territory, that bonds are not a good deal. You are going to see one last pop in the bond market before all hell breaks loose.”
Maloney warns that we may see deflation, but the end game for the Fed is inflation, and that is theft. Maloney says, “When they inflate the currency supply . . . this is the most immoral act because they are stealing portions of our lifetimes. 

Slavery is no longer legal. That was when they were stealing present life moments. Now, they steal past life moments. The whips and the chains still exist, you just can’t see them.”
