Where does gold fit into a modern investment world?
Mike Gentile, investor, director and strategic advisor for several junior mining companies, joins Kenrick to take a hard look at what mining gold really looks like, and what to look for as a potential investor. What role does inflation play in investing in precious metals, and what do terms like “heap leach operation”, “true width” and “dry stacked tailings” actually mean?
