The new age gold rush is among us and it doesn’t look to be slowing down.
Gold prices are jumping higher and higher each day, breaking records that no one (except a few people, like Greg McCoach) predicted. What was once a rush within the market, with traders buying and selling the precious metal like crazy, is now flooding out into the real world.
Pawnshops are overrun with people looking to buy or sell the yellow metal.
A short run of history on gold
Back in October of 2007, it sold for just $740 per ounce.
A year later it jumped to $1,000, marking the first time hitting the thousand dollar mark.
Two weeks ago it hit $1,801 and this week it pushed $1,900.
That is a 157% growth in just two years.
Within around 40 years, gold has gone from $64 to nearly $2,000/ounce making it a 3025% growth. But as this chart below shows, much of it has come just since the turn of the century.
Meanwhile, stocks, despite rising sharply in the last two and a half years, are only slightly higher in price than they were a decade ago. Since hitting a record high in October 2007, the Standard & Poor's 500 index is down 23 percent.
Gold hits a sweet spot among the elements: It's rare, but not too rare. It's chemically stable; all the gold ever mined is still around. And it can be divided into small amounts without losing its properties.
Gold was used around the world as the main currency for hundreds of years, much longer than paper currency has been in place. But it doesn't actually have a genuine value, as we typically believe. It doesn't offer an interest rate, like a bond does. It doesn't represent a share of a company, like a stock. It is speculative as an investment; you only make money if the price goes up.Gold is so valuable because we all agree, with confidence, that it actually is valuable.
Desperate times; Desperate measures
Now we are in a time of struggle, confusion, and fright; the U.S. economy is in shambles; our nation’s credit has been downgraded; economic growth is slow; the debt limit has been raised once again; and Europe is rioting over their financial problems.
With all of this, gold is sparkling to any investor right now.
And sadly it’s becoming hysteria.
As the price of gold soars, criminal activity also rises around the globe.
Theives are snatching gold chains from people’s necks. In one district of southern Los Angeles, at least 110 people have been robbed on the street for their gold, many at gunpoint. The same is happening in Oakland. LA Times writer, Stuart Pfeifer reports, “officers are circulating fliers and showing up at churches and community centers to warn residents to stop wearing gold in public, or at least to tuck it under their clothes.”
Over in Iraq, there were 14 shopkeepers killed for their gold in Baghdad as ten gunmen with grenades stole gold and money after shooting the shopkeepers. Just months later 12 more were killed as gunmen cleared out an entire row of goldsmiths’ shops.
Now in Guyana, gold miners are becoming even heavily targeted, as they are the first in line with the commodity. Just last week, a miner was shot to death and his son beaten and buried alive for gold. The AP reports that within the past eight months, 26 people have been killed in Guyana gold mines and all relate to the surging gold prices.
And what’s to say this won’t be happening in the U.S.? This video shows just how easy a robbery can happen and without any prevention.
Large companies are taking advantage
Central banks around the world have bought gold as a hedge against their foreign currency holdings ever since the 2008 financial crisis.
Gold is "an effective hedge in a world where there is too much debt and uncertainty," says Jim McDonald, chief investment strategist at Northern Trust, which owns $2.8 billion of gold in a gold fund.
The 36 year chart shown above has gold at it’s lowest price, $64.95, and just before that gold had a fixed price at around $35/ounce under President Richard Nixon. Then the president ended a long stretch with the fixed relationship of gold to the dollar, therefore prices jumped as foreign currencies were locked to the dollar. Since gold gave the dollar its value, in turn the dollar gave everything else its value.
Following the rise in gold, dollars began to pile up overseas as the U.S. began running a trade deficit. Central banks were allowed to redeem dollars for gold but Nixon’s poorly disguised plan showed that the U.S. didn’t have enough gold to cash out every dollar in circulation. Our currency became less attractive and valuable.
Nixon then “closed the gold window” in an attempt to show that confidence in the U.S. government, NOT gold, is what gives the dollar its value.
Gold and the dollar began to rise and fall freely, and gold earned its place as protection against the falling dollar when confidence lags.
As inflation worsened later in the 1970s and dollars were worth less, the price of gold took off. Gold hit its high in 1980 – $850 an ounce, or more than $2,300 in today's dollars.
It’s a different story with the same characters
Now gold is making huge rallies like it did in the 1970s and 80s, but it’s not just against the dollar this time, but with all currencies.
“Gold is the reciprocal of the world’s faith in the world’s central banks,” says Jim Grant, editor of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer. Right now he feels the faith is low.
As dozens of investors, like Marc Faber, George Soros, Phil Streible, and more continue to announce what the next move is for gold, most investors are licking their lips for gold to keep rallying. Just this month, South Korea, for the first time in ten years, bought gold.
Until the U.S. and Europe get their financial issues solved, which looks like it could take a long time, gold will continue to be your best investment. Inflation, although low at the moment, will rise and the dollar’s value will be destroyed, only resulting in higher gold prices.
Peter Hug is the director of the precious metals division for Kitco, the world’s largest dealer of precious metals, and he believes that there is absolutely no limit to the price of gold as the debt and deficit crisis continues in the U.S. and abroad.
“As long as people are terrified that their purchasing power is going to be eroded, gold goes to $3,000 an ounce,” Hugs says.
Gold at home
Small companies and individuals are now reeling in the money from their gold.
There are networks of housewives that discuss what kinds of gold jewelry they own and seek advice on how and when to sell it. These women walk into pawnshops with a small bracelet or old necklace and walk out thousands of dollars richer.
The amount of people selling their gold is representative with the success of pawnbrokers. We see dozens of various television shows based around pawnshops, but what we don’t see is that some licensed pawnbrokers say they have doubled, tripled, and quadrupled their gold sales in just the past two years.
No matter if is the black market, the stock market, or the street market, gold is the hottest thing to own right now and it does not look like it will be cooling off very soon.

World-Famous Gold Bug Greg McCoach Wants To Show You...
Record highs are reported almost weekly. There's no end in sight. And everyone's diving into the market. While millions are forced to pay retail, here's a little glitch that lets you seize ounces for pennies on the dollar.Dear reader:
This one's for the books.
510 miles north of Akron, Oh...
... In a region home to one of North America's most abundant gold deposits...
... The most shocking land-grab of the past 50 years is quietly yet rapidly unfolding.
In short, thanks to one uranium giant's neglected assets, a tiny exploration company recently secured several billion dollars worth of gold - for just $250k.
That's not the down payment on a loan, either. They bought the entire property for $250,000. Cash.
Since we first caught wind of this insane deal, early investors already made over three times their money.
And in the next few weeks, it could easily triple again!I'm going to show you how to take advantage of it right now, with amazing results.
Here's the full story...
You see, I recently returned from just outside Timmins, Ontario.
For those of you who don't know, Timmins sits right in the heart of one of the greatest gold belts in the entire world, the famous Abitibi Greenstone Belt.
In fact, it's been churning out the yellow metal for so long (since 1907) the entire region's been dubbed "Elephant Country."
It's produced 180 million ounces, or 5,625 tons, of gold. It's also raked in more than 450 million tons of copper-zinc ore.
To top it off, Ontario is one of the least hostile and most government friendly places in the entire world to operate a mine.
In recently years, however, the location seemed to be drying up. And many of the companies operating there thought their days were numbered.
Of course, that's exactly why I'm still in shock from the phone call I received several months ago...
The Most Profitable Phone Call You May Ever Hear AboutI was locking the door to our Denver house.
My wife and I just returned from filling ourselves with a 24 oz porterhouse and a bottle of some unpronounceable yet delicious Bordeaux at Brooks Steak House & Cellar.
(If you are ever in the Denver area, you absolutely must go. Brooks is THE place for prime cuts - hands down.)
Anyway, I still had our jackets wrapped around my arm and keys in my hand when it happened...
The phone rang.
Expecting a call from one of my sons, I quickly placed everything on the back of a dining room chair and raced over.
Before I could utter a single word, an ecstatic voice instantly broke out, speed-talking.
The auctioneer-paced conversation came from a close friend and fellow gold investor that I've known for years.
Recently, he took a sizeable position in an - at the time, questionable - exploration company. It's based right next to the one I'm now writing to tell you about.
The man, quite literally, has a knack for finding massive gold jackpots, the likes of which typically multiply your money in a very short time.
He's used to big gains. He sees them pretty much all of the time. So when he calls at 9:30 on a Wednesday night, gasping for air as he rambles about THIS property, I knew I needed to pay close attention.
The conversation started something like this...
"Did you see it?! Did you see it?! They announced it! 12.17 grams per ton! The stock launched 56% today! It's there! It's [expletive] huge! They think it's the same gold system that runs under Timmins... it's just a little deeper under the ground! You have to see this report! This could be massive! I'll fax it over!"
A few minutes later, a 20-page fax came through. And after giving it a careful read (highlighted for you below), that was all it took.
I immediately researched other companies that were fresh in the area, booked a flight, and packed my bag.
Next thing I knew, I was heading up to Ontario.
I knew I would uncover something highly profitable to share with you. I just had no idea it would be this huge and, as you'll see, be able to deliver gains overnight...
The Secret That Mining And Exploration Companies
Don't Want You To Know
Don't Want You To Know
If you're not familiar with the mining terminology... What indicators to look for... What faults and other mineral deposits tip-off that you're getting extremely close...
... Then explaining absolutely everything that gives geologists goose bumps when they think about this new location would only confuse you.
In all honesty, the jargon is a skill set I've developed over a very long career in the gold industry.
Even with the very best teaching you, there's a lot of trial and error before you actually "get it."
Considering there's a severe time constraint before this sucker pops, and I mean running from $0.45 to $4.33 over the next 12 months (and as high as $11 - $23 in the next few years), I'll just give you the crash course.
And it starts like this: There are no new gold discoveries!
It's true. The world's "easy" gold discoveries - the spots where gold literally sifted from streams - are long gone.*** It's a secret that no mining or exploration company wants you to know.
In other words, what scientists and geologists do now to find massive deposits is start by going back to the biggest and best of the old ones.
Ones like the massive Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Ontario from which I recently returned.
From there, thanks to recent technological advancements, they run a series of seismic tests in different spots under the ground, searching for specific geologic formations and proof of certain minerals.
If all adds up, they drill a test well and ship it off for examination.
*** Now, this is important to remember: At this point, the company's value, and, typically, the share price barely budges on exploration companies.
If the results come back - just two or three weeks later - with positive results, before you're even told, you'll see something amazing happen.
The share price will instantly skyrocket - just like it did with my friend's exploration company! And the run to several hundred percent gains begins!It looks something like this:
You can see how fast companies on these gold properties can hand investors cash. Timing is absolutely critical.
Now normally, it's a very labor-intensive process from start to finish.
But that's exactly what made my friend's investment, and the one I'm here to share with you, so absolutely astounding.
... and what could hand you double - even triple - your money over the next year!You see, this area's already been tested before...
How The Largest Uranium Company In The World Ditched The Most Exciting
Gold Discovery In The Last 50 Years
You could call this the ultimate gift of fate... or the biggest goof in a company's history.
I'm sure that by now, you're familiar with Cameco. It's currently the Exxon/Mobil of uranium companies.
What you may not know is that several years ago - in the ‘90s to mid 2000s - Cameco was deeply rooted in gold exploration.
And one of their prized locations spanned the area that the company I'm here to tell you about now owns.
Fortunately for us, Cameco basically gave the property away... with all of the work pretty much done!
In fact, by 2002, according to a 627-page report they filed with the Ontario Ministry for Mines, Cameco drilled 15 holes and collected 1,067 gold samples in the property. Each one showed extreme potential for high gold mineralization.
Here's an excerpt directly from that 627 page report:
"These results, although not economic so far, are indicative of a large gold system. It is part of a major deformation corridor, traced by drilling for more than two kilometers along strike, up to 1.5 kilometers wide and more than 600 meters deep."
Keep in mind that at the time gold barely traded above $300 an ounce.
To top it off, their gold results - although some showing an astonishing 159.9 grams of gold per ton - appeared discontinuous and inconsistent.
What we would learn - and was even recommended further in Cameco's report - is that to get to the massive deposits, they would need more funding and have to dig deeper.
At the time, the max depth in the holes made by Cameco reached only 600 meters... most of them remaining in the 300 meter depth.
Their reasons for drilling that shallow made sense. After all, that's how deep the famous gold deposit to the east needed to drill.
Today, we now know that the gold they were getting - those massive readings - came from just the upper crust of what geologists are starting to call the most impressive gold discovery in the last 50 years!
Unfortunately, for Cameco, by the time their recommendations to drill deeper came around, they were leaving both the gold business and Canada in order to concentrate on what would become their uranium empire.
The property was virtually given away to another gold company in exchange for two payments totaling $250k.You read that right.
This land - what could be the most exciting gold discovery in 50 years - sold for just $250k.
Taking Cameco's Gold Recommendation
Doubles Exploration Outfit's Share Price
Doubles Exploration Outfit's Share Price
Immediately to the west... on the very next property, my friend's gold company struck the jackpot.
They knew, being so close to Cameco's old property, that they shared the same exact geological formations.
Their shallower test results even came back the same as Cameco's.
Naturally, they studied Cameco's reports and efforts to the "T."
So it's no surprise that when they read their recommendation to drill deeper, they knew that's where the mother lode could be found.
And that's exactly what they did.
In fact, they drilled deeper than ANY company in the area before them - much deeper.
And that's when things started to get exciting...
While they waited the short period for their test results to come back, their share price - until close of trading - remained around $1.02.
But by the very next morning, however, after their test results from drilling were officially known, the company's share price surged 56%. And they haven't looked back since!
Today, it trades for $2.12... more than doubling every investor's money that got in when my friend did!
And as more results emerge from deeper drilling, geologists from around the world are starting to agree that this massive formation - as deep as it is - is the most exciting thing to happen to gold exploration in the past 50 years!
That's why, as soon as I heard the success of his company, I immediately hopped a plane to Ontario.
I needed to get out there fast and find another company that's in the same position his company was, before the results came back.The company I found for you - after carefully scrutinizing every outfit in the area - couldn't be a more perfect fit.
Acting Right Now Could Triple Your MoneyImagine for one moment...
In The Next Two To Three Weeks
In The Next Two To Three Weeks
How much money you could make if you knew of a company, in the exact same situation as the one my friend found, that's about to see even larger results.
... Several times larger!
That's exactly what I found. And the timing couldn't be more perfect.
You see, this company is ON the same property that Cameco already confirmed has enormous gold potential.And to make matters even more urgent and impressive, the company has some explosive news they expect to announce regarding their latest assay drill results as early as next week!
In other words, the stock is about to skyrocket!
And judging from the absolute swarm of trading on it lately, those results aren't just going to be coming back soon - but could turn out to launch this outfit's share price several times higher!
In fact, as I write this, mega-firms across Europe already have massive funding deals on the table.
... Deals so large that the share price could easily triple - AGAIN - as soon as their results are announced!
So here's the deal.
Just to get you up to speed, I just put the finishing touches on my latest report, detailing absolutely everything under the sun about this discovery and the company behind it.
It's called, "The Best Gold Story in the Last 50 Years."
And I want you to have it - absolutely free.
I'll show you how you can get your hands on it - and every single stock I own in my personal portfolio - in just one moment.But first...
Let Me Introduce MyselfMy name is Greg McCoach, founder and president of the Mining Speculator.
I'm Greg McCoach… managing editor of the Mining Speculator and Insider Alert, and President of AmeriGold, a gold bullion dealer.
My stellar track record is one of the reasons why many of Hollywood’s elite come to me to buy physical gold.
And I don't mean to brag, but - my portfolio returns are nothing short of astonishing. Check this out...
Precious metals are the best recession-proof, anti-inflation investment vehicle available to you. Period.
And I wouldn't say this if I weren't heavily invested in precious metals stocks myself.
But here's the thing...
I'm not writing you today to talk about any "ordinary" precious metals stocks.
You see - we're in the middle of a once-in-a-lifetime global economic crisis. And we're seeing historic changes to our financial system on what seems like a daily basis... with more staggering changes yet to come.
It's during times like these that historic profits are made by those who know where to look.
This is the time when fortunes are built.
And that's just what I intend to help you do.
So like I said... I'm not talking about investing in an assortment of precious metals stocks that some analyst spotted on his computer screen in the middle of an office somewhere in New York.
Instead, I'm talking about investing in stocks with 50-to-1 return potential - regardless of how the overall market does - right alongside the analyst who has personally inspected the property of each recommendation... carefully evaluated its management... and felt so strongly about the play that he sunk his own money into it.
"When you first touted Company X in a newsletter as a potential Company W, I got enthused and bought 20,000 shares at $0.70. At first it dipped into the low $0.60 range but then it has taken off like a rocket."Let me explain how it all works...

And now I'm inviting you to join me in this astounding profit potential.
All you have to do is take a risk-free trial of the Mining Speculator advisory.
(In fact, you'll have a full 6 months to decide.)
Here's what it's all about...
Mining Speculator isn't your normal investment advisory. It is, however, the definitive resource for investors seeking profits-and protection - in a gold and precious metals bull market with no end in sight.
I know that you don't like to ‘toot your own horn,' but the two things that really set your service apart from the other mining stock recommendation services is (1) you do the leg work, and go to visit the mines, and the management, so if you recommend something I have great confidence about it, and (2) you do not do a ‘pump and dump' like many other people out there. You also have been covering the junior miners for many years, and know many of the companies and individuals in this industry, which is invaluable."
-- John N.

It's where investors burned by the financial crisis are now turning... as a safe-haven alternative to the agenda-guided mainstream financial media. Truth is, in the Mining Speculator portfolio, I disqualify 99.9% of the gold, mining and precious metals plays out there.
But when I'm fully 100% behind a company, like this rare gold opportunity, you'll get the trade recommendation in a moment's notice. I'll tell you what to buy, when to sell, and when to hold... so you can enjoy the greatest gains possible.
Plus, you'll also receive - every month - profit producing research, including my special Mining Speculator reports and urgent updates, as well as unrestricted access to the Mining Speculator web site... all for just $99 a year. That's less than $0.28 a day!
In other words, for less than a pack of Bazooka Joe, you can begin receiving your copy of the Mining Speculator advisory, in addition to getting a free copy of my special report, "The Best Gold Story in the Last 50 Years."

As I mentioned earlier, the response to our initial offer for memberships in the Mining Speculator was overwhelming.
"I have been following Greg's recommendations in the junior mining sector for the past five years. At first I just watched, but eventually after seeing so many of his recommended stocks appreciate by multiples, I began putting my own money into his top picks. That was three and a half years ago. My portfolio is now worth many, many times what I originally invested. I have never made this kind of money with my investments. He could charge thousands of dollars for the information he provides. I recommend him to all of my friends, family and associates."

Starting today - I'm re-opening the doors for a limited time to let a select few investors claim the few spots we have remaining.
Now... I have to tell you - to get access to the kind of information you'll receive in the Mining Speculator, you'd likely have to pay a minimum of $10,000 per year anywhere else.
And that's only if you can find someone willing to do the research... visit the mine sites... kick the tires... and deliver only those companies with the potential for 50-to-1 gains or better.
That's why we offered the Mining Speculator at $500 to $1,000 a year.
But listen... that investment is truly just a drop in the bucket when you consider you could ring the cash register with returns of $10,000 or more from just a single Mining Speculator trade.
And even though I consider that $500 to be an absolute steal...
I'm not even going to come close to charging you that much.
Instead, my publisher and I are offering the limited number of Mining Speculator reservations we have left for just $99 per year.
Now let me be clear - remaining spots are going fast. And at a discounted rate of just $99, I fully expect to sell out in short order.
So it's absolutely critical that you ACT NOW in order to claim your spot. After all...
- At a discounted rate of just $99 - more than $400 off the retail price - our few remaining spots are sure to disappear quickly.
- And what's more - I'll give you a full 180 days to examine my research and investment philosophy. If you decide my Mining Speculator isn't right for you... just let me know within 6 months, and I'll refund every last penny of your subscription fee.
"When I first met you, you told me I could use the profits I would make in the junior mining stocks to pay off my house. I didn't really believe you. Two and a half years later I wrote a check to do just that. I never thought this would be possible. Thank you so much for your wise guidance."

Remember... the profit potential here is off the charts.
Consider this - just $10,000 invested in the average Mining Speculator play each year since 2001 would already break $2,956,466.55 today.
But compared to the metals boom we're entering right now, that's nothing.
So let's get started.
