Rick Rule on the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium and the time to get repositioned for the resource recovery
by Allen Alper Jr., President of Metals News
I had the pleasure of talking with Rick Rule about the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium that will take place July 25-28th. Now is the time to get repositioned for the resource recovery and this venue gives exceptional exposure and insight to the investor. Mr. Rule has gained a clear and focused approach from dedicating his entire adult life to understanding and capitalizing on many specialized aspects of natural resource securities investing. In addition to this knowledge and experience gained, he has a worldwide network of contacts in the natural resource and finance worlds. As Director, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Sprott US Holdings, Inc., Mr. Rule leads a highly skilled team of earth science and finance professionals who enjoy a worldwide reputation for resource investment management. It is always a great opportunity to pick Rick Rule's brain and at the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium, he is just one of the resources available.

Mercenary Alert: Is Zinc Still a Four-Letter Word?
by Mickey Fulp the Mercenary Geologist
My bearish views on zinc during past metals cycles have been at odds with many other analysts and letter writers who were zinc bulls at one time or another. My opinions have largely proven correct as zinc mining companies have seldom prospered and rewarded shareholders in the 25 years that I have been speculating in the resource sector. In fact, bankruptcies, reorganizations, and distressed acquisitions have been the rule for zinc miners.
