ScrapingForGoldCompiling a list of Central Banks who are willing or unwilling to disclose the location of their gold vaults is a pointless endeavor unless each CB is willing to undergo a completely independent audit of every bar of gold and the associated record-keeping activities connected with each bar.
We have a better chance of finding life on Pluto than getting any Central Bank willing to submit to a legitimate audit open to pubic inspection.

sold outWe’re told that surging investment demand for retail forms of silver is a whole different animal than surging investment demand for 1000 oz bars.
Is it really?  I don’t think so.
Once a wholesale physical silver shortage kicks in, that shortage can’t be further contained by derivatives trading and most likely will have to burn itself out the old-fashioned way:

empty-vaultThe Comex bank custodians are reporting over 51 million ounces of silver available for delivery.  In fact, CNT – an official supplier to the U.S. mint – is showing 13.3 million ounces of deliverable silver.   So why is there’s a shortage of silver at the U.S. mint?
IF that silver were actually in the vault, the U.S. mint could buy a spot contract – September has a silver contract open – and take immediate delivery.  
The silver market is seizing up, which means that there’s a severe shortage of silver available…


sold outSkeptical that a REAL SHORTAGE is developing in the physical silver market?
SD welcomed Sunshine Minting CEO Tom Power for a special Exclusive interview to ask: 
What’s Going On at the US Mint, and Are We Looking at the Potential For an Extreme, 2008 Style Shortage in Silver? 

For some, what is coming will seem like a great time.  For others, who lose everything in the global crash, it will seem like starting over again. 
After the point the precious metal’s dealers literally shut down their phone lines, TRILLIONS of dollars in paper fiat capital is going to roar into the precious metals paper fiat fiasco better known as the New York Commodities Exchange and other fiat futures casinos around the world.

collapseThe retail silver shortages we have experienced in the market are WARNING SIGNS for the BIG EVENT to come. 
If you are waiting for a signal that a global wholesale silver shortage has begun, it will likely be too late to acquire physical metal.  Why?  Because it has never happened before.
So, when the world bond and stock markets finally collapse under a mountain of paper, leverage and debt, we will witness one hell of a GLOBAL RUN ON SILVER. 

Jamie DimonIt’s enough that the mainstream financial media seems hell-bent of bashing gold. (Of course, silver gets hardly a mention). But GATA’s Chris Powell has been on a tirade of late, picking apart the lower hanging fruit of these theories and misplaced assumptions, if not outright desperate attempts to rationalize technically driven market prices. 
The following answer to a gold insider is a must read:
