How to find a good precious metal for your future
As precious metals prices rise and gold is in a bull market, gold could be a good buy for your retirement savings.
But you can only buy so many precious metals at a time.
Here’s a list of what you can expect to see in 2018.
Alaska’s gold boomThe state’s gold production is in decline.
The Alaska Department of Revenue estimates the state has lost about 1.4 million ounces of gold since 2014.
That’s more than half of its gold stock.
The state’s economy is suffering as more jobs go overseas.
The downturn has forced Alaska’s gold mining to lay off thousands of workers, including those who work for mining companies.
Gold prices have been volatile since the end of the gold price bubble in the late 1990s, but they’ve never been lower.
Alaskans are excited about the prospect of finding gold in 2018, but don’t necessarily want to spend the $100 million it takes to mine one ounce.
“We’re not going to do it,” says Kristin Moore, president of the Alaskan Gold Council.
“I’ve seen the amount of gold that’s being mined in this state and it’s just not worth it.”
The U.S. Geological Survey has warned of a steep drop in U.N. gold shipments in 2018 if the world does not curb its emissions.
But Moore and other gold experts say that would not be a big deal.
“There’s been a lot of activity, and I’m sure there will be a lot more activity,” Moore says.
“If there’s a significant increase in gold, we’ll probably see a decrease in U,N.
Alaska and China’s goldThe U-turn for the U.K. will mean a shift to the Chinese yuan.
But in Alaska, Alaska gold prices will continue to rise, which could hurt Alaska’s economy.
Alaskans will be forced to rely on foreign investors to purchase gold from China.
The price of the precious metal is expected to fall in 2018 to $1,000 an ounce, but Moore says that won’t hurt Alaska at all.
“Alaska is going to be a major buyer of gold in the next few years,” Moore said.
“It will be pretty difficult to find gold that is cheap in the future.”
Alaskan gold has a long history of mining, but it has never been in a state where mining jobs are disappearing.
The mining industry is in the midst of a comeback.
“The mining industry in Alaska has always been a strong economy,” Moore explains.
“And there is a lot to be said for people who are not living paycheck to paycheck.”
Alkaline mineralsAlkalines are among the few minerals that are still mined on an industrial scale in Alaska.
They’re mined on a smaller scale than in other countries because of the heavy metals in them.
The metals in the alkalines make them strong and durable.
“These are the metals that the United States military uses, and the ones we use for ballistic missile defense,” Moore explained.
The United States is one of the only countries in the world that uses them for nuclear weapons.
But the U-Turn will affect Alaskal mining, and could have a ripple effect on the rest of the world.
The U.KS is one country that mines Alaskals, and it is looking to move away from alkaline mining.
The country plans to cut its output by about 30 percent to 40 percent.
“For Alaska, the U,S.A. is a big, big, huge market,” Moore predicted.
“But they’re going to get to the point where there are not going be any new customers.”
Alvina’s gold rushIt’s not a huge leap for Alaska to be one of its biggest buyers of gold.
In fact, Alaska has had a huge boom in the past 10 years, and many experts expect the Alaska gold rush to continue.
“This is the gold rush of the future,” Moore predicts.
“That’s what we’re talking about.”
