If the last decade has been a blessing on any single group of investors... it's the gold bugs.
From 2002 to 2012, we saw prices more than quadruple, busting through “barriers” without breaking a sweat.
If you missed your opportunity to get in when prices were under $300 an ounce, you're not alone. Most of the investing public missed the early days of this historic run.
Why? Simple: Most people rely solely on mainstream financial news sources, the big names...
You know, the "experts who proclaimed over and over that “gold would never break $600/$700/$1,000/$1,200/$1,500/$1,800”...
With each price barrier, they said that was it. No higher. And each time, they were dead wrong.
In fact, from the very start of gold's historic rally, we were among the only outlets bold enough to publicly declare how high it would go — even on nationally televised programs.
And thanks to our unwavering, spot-on predictions, time and again we've helped hundreds of thousands of investors protect themselves and their families from market catastrophes and to generate their own financial fortunes.
I'm not trying to brag — rather, to make the point that unlike those big name financial news sources, our independent research allows us the freedom to tell investors like yourself the raw truth, whether it's popular or not.
And that leads me into the real reason for this letter:
What you can expect in 2013.
For starters, silver prices are going to skyrocket. And early investors preparing now for the coming surge could reap an absolute fortune.
I don't say that lightly, either.
The truth is, at our current rate of consumption, we'll completely run out of silver within the next eight years.
And it's guaranteed to send prices in excess of $150 an ounce — very soon!
A few of the factors at play include:
- Obama's second term and the coming 2013 fiscal cliff, when taxpayers will face an extra $500 billion in tax hikes.
- Central banks are starting to load their safes with physical precious metals, both silver and gold.
- Sales of silver are drastically outpacing sales of gold, in both private and institutional holdings, leading to a much more rapid surge in spot prices.
- And to top it off, silver mining companies across the globe have been struggling to find enough silver to meet the industrial demand side of the equation.
I have already prepared a detailed report for you that spells out — step-by-step — the entire situation.
It also reveals some of my favorite silver stocks that I see posting the largest gains over the next couple of years...

Major buzz is starting to filter through the mining community...
Just 15 miles southwest of a huge $5 BILLION silver deposit in mining-friendly Peru, one tiny exploration company has hit the precious metals jackpot...
Having staked 46 claims in a site that spans 25,291 acres, they've quietly uncovered what could be a huge mountain of silver.
It's a massive 35 million ounce silver discovery currently valued at an impressive $1.1 BILLION — and growing quickly.
In fact, I think this mountain could hold several hundred millions of ounces of silver.
Even better, you can scoop up shares of this explosive stock right now for under $1 a share...
And over the next few months, I expect more positive results from the exploration drilling to send shares of this tiny penny stock soaring to the $15 to $20 range — or higher.
In fact, it could announce an even bigger discovery that would immediately drive shares higher, so you don't want to miss out...
You see, not only does this company have exclusive 100% rights to what could be one of the world's largest remaining untapped deposits of silver... but it's also one of the richest silver finds on the planet.
This is the kind of play that could change your life.
The kind where you can turn a tiny initial stake into an absolute fortune...
One capable of funding the rich, fulfilling retirement you deserve — with enough leftover to leave a generous nest egg for your children or grandchildren.
I'll give you the full details on this rapidly developing silver story over the course of the next few minutes. I'll also tell you why I think silver exploration stocks could give you even higher gains than gold mining stocks.
But first, why should you believe anything I have to say about making rich outsized gains off tiny silver, gold, and other junior resource stocks?
Let me explain...
Hi. I'm Greg McCoach.
I've been a junior mining investment analyst and gold bullion dealer for the past 13 years.
You may have seen me before on major media outlets like CNBC and Fox.
They interview me because when it comes to picking winning junior gold and silver mining stocks, my track record is second to none.
And I'm not one to brag, but I've zeroed in on similar mining companies that have delivered my readers hundreds to thousands of percent gains...
I'm talking about big triple- and quadruple-digit winners on tiny gold, silver, and other junior mining stocks like:
- 145% on Excellon Resources
- 346% on Duluth Metals
- 610% on Silvercorp
- 894% on Allied Nevada
- 1,235% on Capital Gold
- 1,200% on Canadian Zinc
- 1,740% on Polymet Mining
- 1,803% on NovaGold
- And much more...
Consider this: Just $10,000 invested in the average play since 2001 would already break $2,742,243 in profits today.
I don't know of any other investment advisor in the world who's matched this record — and if you can find one, I recommend you begin following their advice immediately (and tell me about it, too).
But that's not why I'm writing to you today...
In short, this is one of the most exciting silver finds I've witnessed in my career as a precious metals investment analyst.
The company has already locked down a huge $1.2 BILLION ounce deposit of silver with major potential for a high-grade discovery. Almost every press release from the company contains news of this miner hitting new rich intercepts of silver.
So this could be the tip of the iceberg for this small company with a market cap just shy of $72.6 million.
Bottom line is that this company has 100% rights to mine this silver bonanza worth 16 TIMES its current "market cap."
You could see gains of 2,473%, once investors catch wind of this fast-moving small cap situation, turning every $5,000 into $123,650 or $10,000 into $247,300 starting just days from now.
It's the type of moneymaking play that can transform your life... essentially overnight.
And bear in mind... this is just an estimate of this small cap stock's value based on initial findings from this mammoth silver discovery.
The company's geologists have taken thorough samples indicating that silver exists in abundant quantities.
In fact, all 15 holes they drilled except for one came up with high-grade silver. So we may have a conservative estimate here.
But I don't expect shares of this explosive small cap miner to remain this cheap for much longer...
More positive drilling results have just been released, and your rare opportunity to claim a potentially life-changing stake could vanish for good.
So let me give you the full story right now...
Even China is Getting in on the Action
Peru currently ranks as the second leading producer of silver in the world. In fact, nowhere on the continent of South America is as much gold and silver mined as in Peru.
Right now, the country is in the midst of the biggest gold and silver mining boom in recorded history.
According to the Ministry of Energy and Mines, mining companies are investing a whopping $51.4 BILLION in new mines and expansion projects in Peru.
Even China is getting in on action, expected to pour a hearty $3 billion into various mining projects throughout Peru over the next 18 months.
And this tiny exploration company has already secured 25,291 mineral-rich acres in Peru's central silver belt.
It's one of the richest silver belts on the planet... and it's home to several world-class silver mines.
In fact, to the southwest of this company's site is Cerro de Pasco, Peru's fourth largest silver mine and one of the biggest in all of South America.
Plus this company's site is mere miles from a massive $5 billion silver deposit that's currently being exploited by Buenaventura Mining, a "senior" gold and silver producer. So this is an area that's absolutely teeming with mining activity.
Currently, our tiny silver company is exploring two separate mineral zones at its vast site.
The first zone contains the massive 35 million ounce deposit of silver, which, as I said earlier, is just the tip of the iceberg.
The company's CEO said this first zone had a mineralization width of 100 meters near the surface and extended as far down as a whopping 200 meters.
In short, this is an under-the-radar silver play that I think eventually will shoot up 2,473% or more, based just on the current value of their silver reserves alone.
Now, if you're skeptical that this stock could explode 2,473%, I certainly understand...
But the simple truth is other, very similar junior silver producers — the kinds of silver stocks I specialize in — have done even better.
Take Silver Standard, for instance...
You could have bought this stock for less than $1. But after its first mines went into production, the stock exploded to more than $34 per share! That's a life-altering gain of 3,300%.
Point is you could make a killing by getting in right now — BEFORE its first mine goes into production.
But the real fortune will be made when the second mine comes online...
According to this company's consulting geologists, the second zone contains a silver deposit that absolutely dwarfs the first zone.
In fact, they think it could be TRIPLE THE SIZE of the deposit in the first zone!
So that means this exploration company may have access to an additional 105 million ounces of silver worth a stunning $3.2 BILLION at today's prices!
If this turns out to be true, then there's almost no question that shares of this junior miner would soar into the stratosphere.
In fact, all five drill holes they sampled in this zone came up with silver.
Now here's the really exciting part...
Initial tests from the second zone showed high levels of "volcanic sulfide mineralization" (VSM).
Sulfide mineralization is known to be an excellent indicator for high levels of zinc and rare earth metals...
Price point for rare earth metals are about that of gold — and demand for these industrial metals rivals that of even silver.
So you can imagine my excitement when the company's CEO announced:
"We are extremely pleased with the results of this [new] survey as it indicates that the sulphide mineralization may be more than twice the size than was first indicated. The Company has already commenced preparation of an amendment to the current drill permit to include drill platforms over this new anomaly."
When they confirm with drilling that they have hit this kind of mineralization, the big mining majors will be all over this company.
Are you beginning to see why this incredible junior mining company has me so excited?
The profit potential is simply off the charts.
But here's the thing...
Less Risk, Higher Returns
I'm incredibly selective when it comes to recommending junior gold and silver mining stocks to my circle of readers.
The fact remains that only 1 in a 1,000 explorers ever strikes it really big.
Most exploration companies never end up finding anything at all.
That's why I look for companies with massive built-in advantages over other gold and silver explorers that are starting completely from scratch.
And the fact that they already have a huge discovery is just the beginning...
This company's world-class site is nestled in between several major mining projects. So the infrastructure to support a massive mining operation already exists: There are paved roads and power lines along the border of the property.
This saves the company vast amounts of money and time.
And it gets even better...
Silver isn't the only resource this company has discovered at this site. They've also found huge amounts of zinc and lead.
And I haven't even factored that into the total estimate for this company's huge profit potential after their most recent mineral predictions were blown out of the water.
In short, I recommend you start building a tiny stake in this company right now.
This story will not remain under wraps for long. The people who stand the chance to make the most money here are the ones who get in soon.
That's why I've written up the full details about this explosive mining opportunity for you in a brand-new report called, "The Most Explosive Junior Silver Stock of 2013."
More on how to secure your copy in just a moment — first, let me tell you why shares of junior silver miners are set to soar many times their current levels over the next 12 months...
Regardless of what happens to the economy.
Why Junior Silver Stocks Could Deliver You
Even Bigger Gains than Junior Gold Stocks
Recently, silver has been in a more extreme bull market than gold.
That means the gains we could see here could be astronomical.
You see, the price of silver per ounce has usually been equal to around 1/16th of an ounce of gold — meaning it took 16 ounces of silver to equal a single ounce of gold.
But over the past decade, gold has taken off, leaving silver behind — that is, just until recently...
Take a look at this chart:
In the last ten years, silver has returned 609%, while gold has returned 439%.
As you can see, silver is on a tear. But it still has to DOUBLE in price so it's where it should be in relation to gold.
All of this means silver exploration stocks could give us much higher gains than gold stocks.
John Embry, Chief Investment Strategist of Sprott Asset Management, says:
"When silver breaks free, I think many people are going to be shocked by how fast and far it goes."
"When silver breaks free, I think many people are going to be shocked by how fast and far it goes."
Multimillionaire and one of the world's greatest investors Jim Rogers says:
"If you put a gun to my head and said you had to buy one, I would buy silver rather than gold."
"If you put a gun to my head and said you had to buy one, I would buy silver rather than gold."
The fact is demand for silver is on the cusp of hitting historical highs.
Unlike gold, silver has a host of crucial industrial uses...
It's in more of our most useful devices than any other commodity besides petroleum. Silver is needed in just about every electronic device made — from TVs to computers to electric cameras to iPads.
It is also important in batteries, disinfectants, solar energy, and water purification.
The list of products that need silver is enormous and constantly growing — including the two biggest areas of all:
- Photovoltaic cells used in smartphones (1.2 billion cellphones were sold last year)
- Silver's recent ascent as a leading antibacterial agent being used by hospitals and health care facilities around the world (you can buy silver-imbedded Band-Aids!)
Meanwhile, the supply of silver is in a downtrend of historic magnitude...
Silver inventories have fallen 92% since the start of the 20th century.
We actually have 5x more gold than silver in aboveground supplies.
It makes sense when you think about it... 90% of the gold ever mined has been saved, but 90% of all the silver ever mined has been used up for industrial purposes.
At the current rate of use, all known silver reserves will be depleted in less than 30 years.
And if that's not enough to raise the hairs on your neck, then get a load of this... If the rest of the world starts consuming silver at just half the rate of the United States, it will be gone in eight years.
As that date approaches, silver's run-up of the past couple of years will look like a mere blip on the radar screen. Silver's coming surge will give investors the chance to make a killing.
This is an amazing opportunity you will not want to miss out on...
That's why I've set my sights on this tiny company — currently trading for less than a $1 — that you can take advantage of right now for huge gains... all in one of the richest silver districts the world has ever seen!
In fact, I wouldn't be shocked if a larger company looking to beef up its existing silver reserves just swoops in and buys out this company at a substantial premium.
But for you, it could be a win-win...
Shares of this tiny silver company could soar 2,473% — even without a buyout.
Turning a $10,000 stake into $247,300, or invest a bit more and turn $25,000 into a whopping $618,250 profits.
You could retire in style... buy a car or two... set up your children or grandchildren with college funds... donate money to a charity cause that's close to your heart...
The choice is yours.
Now there's so much more I need to tell you about this remarkable company. And it's all in my newest report, "The Most Explosive Junior Silver Stock of 2013."
I'd like to send it to you absolutely free and without obligation.
But before I show you how to get it, please let me tell you some more about myself...
Even Hollywood's Elite Have Sought Me Out
I've been dealing in precious metals since 1998, when I founded Amerigold.com, a gold and silver bullion dealership located in Denver, Colorado.
Even some of Hollywood's elite have come to me to buy physical gold.
In 2000, after coming out of the dot-com bubble, I knew gold prices were bottoming — and that a new precious metals bull market was taking hold.
That's exactly when I launched my newsletter, Greg McCoach's Mining Speculator.
In fact, I was calling for $1,000 gold long before anyone believed it could happen — and $1,500 gold two years before we reached that benchmark.
I've been warning readers like you about the coming financial crisis for years, telling you the best way to prepare is by owning shares of precious metals mining stocks.
Many of the talking head pundits disagreed with me at the time... but that didn't stop my readers from making life-changing profits hand over fist as the U.S. dollar fell off a cliff and the government turned the printing presses on full throttle.
Just have a look for yourself...
My portfolio has more than tripled!
"As a recent subscriber, I want you to know how thankful I am to have met you. Because of your Deluth Metals recommendation, my own portfolio has more than tripled since I subscribed. The fee you charge for your service is a pittance compared to the value you deliver." — Fred Williams, Austin, TX
I used the profits to pay off my house!
"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." — Sean Spencer, Del Ray Beach, FL
I've never made this kind of money before!
"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." — Robert Brigham, San Diego, CA
That's just a small sampling of the emails I've received from my readers over the years who are padding their portfolios with triple- and quadruple-digit gainers.
I'm telling you all of this not to boast — but to show you that this tiny silver stock is simply outstanding.
In the past, I've helped my readers bank explosive gains on similar junior mining companies — including 912% on Silver Standard, 989% on Wheaton River, 1,316% on Guyana Goldfields, 1,110% on Viceroy X, 1,400% on American Bonanza, and more...
But as impressive as those gains are, I think the potential for profits with this stock is even greater.
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 to my Mining Speculator advisory.
Let me tell you how it works... and why I believe you could make more money in the months and years ahead than at any time before in your life.
The Precious Metals Bull Market
is Just Beginning to Heat Up
Today, we sit at a historic crossroads.
It's a once-in-a-lifetime moment when you can make a huge fortune on gold, silver, and other junior mining stocks.
Even though the major resources — gold, silver, platinum, copper, zinc, etc. — have had some astounding runs, we are not anywhere close to the end of this precious metals bull market.
You see, the United States is in terrible economic shape, plagued by an out-of-control national debt. And it's doubtful we'll get out of it anytime soon.
As a result, prices of gold, silver, platinum, and other resources have started climbing...
In fact, I'd say that in five years, all of these things — gold, silver, and platinum — will be much higher in value than they are today.
Some currency analysts are calling for gold to hit $5,000 an ounce... and silver $200 an ounce.
And the soaring prices and new technologies are putting previously inaccessible deposits of precious metals and other resources within reach — much faster than ever before.
As a result, these stocks have the potential to shoot up quicker — and higher — than at any time in the past.
It's a commodities bull market you don't want to miss out on.
And that's the point of my research advisory, The Mining Speculator. It's the best way for you to learn how to take advantage of these incredible opportunities.
Now, the truth is I disqualify 99% of the mining and precious metals plays out there... But when I'm fully 100% behind a company — like this rare silver opportunity — you'll get the trade recommendation in a moment's notice.
I'll tell you exactly what to buy, when to sell, and when to hold... so you can enjoy the biggest gains possible.
So how do you get started? Well before I tell you, I should also mention something...
Is The Mining Speculator Right For You?
In spite of everything I've said, The Mining Speculator may not be for you.
That's because when you sign up for my service, I won't recommend companies you've likely ever heard of before.
These exploration companies are incredibly tiny. They aren't covered by analysts or money managers. You certainly won't read about them in the Wall Street Journal or the Financial Times.
But there's another reason you'll likely never hear about these stocks.
You see, though they are all publicly-traded companies, most of them aren't listed on Wall Street.
In most cases, you can only find them on Bay Street — that's north of the border on Toronto's two major stock exchanges.
Most people don't know this, but Canada's Bay Street has more junior exploration companies listed on it than any other stock market in the world. It's THE Wall Street of exploration mining.
So, in order to take advantage of these opportunities, you must be willing to invest in tiny companies listed on Toronto's two stock exchanges. It isn't hard. And I'll show you exactly what to do and how to do it.
But I know some people will only invest "American." So if this is something that's outside your comfort zone, then my service isn't something you'll be interested in.
On the other hand, if this is still something you would like to do, I will walk you through buying Canadian mining stocks step by step on my website.
Chances are, your broker may already deal with Canadian securities. Almost all of the large brokerages like E*Trade, Interactive, Scottrade and Fidelity already do.
And keep in mind, I get no compensation for mentioning these brokerages. I only provide this information to help you.
So if you're ready to take advantage of this amazing precious metals bull market, here's what I suggest you do...

We're thrilled and the best is yet to come!
"Dear Mr. McCoach, thank you for your dedication to your site and your work.

Needless to say we are thrilled, and the best is yet to come. Coming from a family of 13 brothers and sisters and knowing the value of a dollar, it has been a blessing to have found your site." — Barb and Bob E., Philadelphia, PA
And I think you'll be just as pleased with the performance of my recommendations.
So how much does a Mining Speculator membership cost?
I think it's insanely cheap — especially considering all the time, money, and effort that go into this research. In many cases, I've spent years following the activities of these geologists before I recommend their companies...
I've met with them personally; I've visited their properties, inspected their operations, analyzed their reports. And I stay on top of their developments — and stay in touch with their exploration teams on a regular basis.
It takes a lot of time flying to remote locations... staying in isolated locations... and then spending months tracking their developments...
And if you're ready for a sophisticated approach to investing in these junior mining companies, you won't find another service like this — not to mention the potentially huge returns these recommendations could generate.
But before I tell you how to start your own trial subscription to my Mining Speculator advisory, there's one more opportunity you can take advantage of right now...
Huge Event in Gold
There's been a major development in the gold industry.
It's a discovery so massive, I recently traveled halfway across the continent to see it for myself.
As you read this, Canada's Yukon Territory is in the early stages of what could be one of the biggest exploration success for gold in decades.
Geologists estimate that up to 100 million ounces of gold lie underneath these few acres of land.
At today's prices, that's a stunning $166 BILLION worth of gold.
And one small exploration company I've been tracking — currently trading for less than $2 a share — has had a 100% success rate in their drill tests.
In fact, every single hole they've sampled (and they've done 72 so far) has come up with gold in it. And those 72 drill holes represent less than 10% of the total land on this company's gold mining claim.
Conservative estimates suggest four to six million ounces of gold from these holes.
But imagine that much gold spread out over 720 holes...
That's upwards of 60 million ounces of gold!
Not too shabby for a company whose current market cap is less than $114 million.
I conservatively estimate you could double your money as this situation unfolds.
When you sign up for The Mining Speculator, you'll receive all the details on this opportunity immediately in my research report, "The Yukon's Best: The Easiest Gold Gains You'll Ever Make."
