1. Gold has traded between $1,285 and $1,291 so far today…as of 7:00 am Pacific, bullion is up $an ounce at $1,295…Silver is 4 cents lower at $15.03…Nickel is off 5 cents at $5.87, Zinc is unchanged at $1.34 while Copper has slipped a penny to $2.92…the Peruvian government has offered to end emergency measures authorizing the use of force in a remote Andean region if indigenous protesters lift their blockades of roads to Chinese miner MMG’s Las Bambas Copper mine, Peru’s Prime Minister said yesterday…Las Bambas produces about 400,000 tonnes of Copper per year, equivalent to about 2% of global output and 1% of Peru’s GDP…CME Group reports that metals volume averaged 592,000 contracts per day in March, down 13% year-on-year…still, the exchange operator reports a number of highlights, including record Copper options open interest of 68,000 contracts on March 25…average daily volume in precious-metals options rose 29% while Gold options average volume increased 33%…U.S. durable-goods orders fell in February after 3 straight months of growth due to a sharp decline in civilian aircraft orders, although the overall drop was smaller than expected…Bitcoin jumped suddenly today, reaching its highest level since late November as it added over $14 billion to its market cap in the last 24 hours and briefly touched the $5,000 mark…Bitcoin has been range bound for a while now…volume-led price action triggered algos on a breakout, driving the market up 15%…the World Trade Organization expects global trade growth to rebound in 2020 to 2018 levels after dipping this year to 2.6%, its lowest level in 3 years…the WTO cites the impact of rising commercial tensions and tariffs for the 2019 decline…the WTO’s forecasts, however, have been wildly off the mark at times…last September it said trade would increase by 3.9% in 2018 and 3.7% in 2019

2. How convenient – just as the Trudeau Liberals roll out another piece of their deeply flawed “climate change” plan (a federally-imposed carbon tax in 4 provinces that have no equivalent policies of their own), out comes an alarmist report from Environment and Climate Change Canada that socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could have written (“A lot of what the Green New Deal is, is about shifting our political, economic and social paradigm on every issue.  Because we don’t have time to wait,” the darling of the Democrats said the other day)…Canada is warming up twice as fast as the rest of the world, according to the report, a situation that’s “effectively irreversible”…of course this ignores historical context (there have been alternating periods of cooling and warming), but there are also multiple advantages to warmer temperatures in Canada including dramatically increased potential for major new mineral discoveries that will create new wealth and provide the metals necessary for an expanding Canadian and global economy…over a billion people from India, China and elsewhere around the globe will be joining the ranks of the middle class over the next decade – where are the metals going to come from to power that growth if big new discoveries aren’t made?…

3. Marathon Gold (MOZ, TSX) has cut impressive Gold values over wide widths at significantly higher grade than the present block model through infill drilling in the main zone of its Leprechaun deposit in the Valentine Lake Gold Camp…these intersections include 6 m @ 25.78 g/t, including 1 m @ 147.5 g/t, starting just 6 m downhole in VL-196792 other high-grade intervals were cut further downhole – 22 m @ g/t starting at 152 m, and 22 m @ 11.8 g/t starting at 189 m including 3 m @ 38 g/t (true thickness estimated at 80%)…meanwhile, drill hole VL-19680 cut 71 m @ 2.5 g/t including between 21 m and 92 m depth, including 4 m @ g/t, plus a separate 3 m interval deeper in the hole grading 20.1 g/t Au (280 m to 283 m) at 80% true thickness…these 2 drill holes were collared along the upper edge of the Leprechaun deposit’s Main zone corridor, drilling down through the southwest dipping, stacked Gold-bearing quartz-tourmaline-pyrite veins which form the dominant vein orientation…“These new high-grade Gold intercepts are expected to add significantly to the next resource update for the Leprechaun deposit, not only by upgrading the inferred resources to Measured and Indicated resource categories but also at a much higher grade than is in the present block model,” stated Phillip Walford, President and CEO of Marathon“The new drill holes are extending the high-grade Gold in width, strike length and down dip.  The results are infilling between previously identified high-grade Gold in adjacent drill holes”

4. The Dow is down 78 points through the first 30 minutes of trading…in Toronto, the TSX is up slightly while the Venture has retreated 3 points to 623..48North Cannabis (NRTH, TSX-V) has closed its previously announced bought deal financing at $1.36 per unit for total gross proceeds of approximately $28.75 millionCharlotte’s Web (CWEB, CSE), which released strong financials last week, has hit a new all-time high above $29 in early trading…National Action Cannabis (META, TSX-V) is gaining traction above its 200-day moving average (SMA) after trading mostly below it for the past 6 months…Crystal Lake Mining (CLM, TSX-V) has closed a $4.6 million financing, nearly 90% of it in hard dollars, to aggressively pursue an array of high-grade Gold and Copper-Gold porphyry targets at its 430 sq. km Newmont Lake Project in the Eskay region starting this quarter…significant glacial retreat has led to a promising grassroots drilling discovery at Burgundy Ridge that includes a Copper-rich intrusive unit with Silver, Gold, Cobalt and Zinc…Sable Resources (SAE, TSX-V) has drilled its best intercept yet at its Margaritia Project in Chihuahua state, Mexico – 117 g/t Silver (177 AgEq) over 37.5 m starting just 74.70 m downhole, including 400 g/t Ag, 1.07 g/t Au, 3% Zn and 1.1% Pb over 5.5 m (true width estimated at 90%)…

5. Cresco Labs (CL, CSE) is up for the 3rd straight session after announcing yesterday the largest-ever public company acquisition in the U.S. cannabis sector…Cresco is acquiring CannaRoyalty (OH, CSE), doing business as Origin House…the combination of Cresco Labs and Origin House will result in the premier distribution company serving California, the largest cannabis market in the world…prior to the deal, Beacon Securities analyst Russell Stanley stated that Cresco is “well positioned” to benefit from progress toward cannabis reform at the federal level south of the border: “With its origins in Illinois’s demanding regulatory environment, and demonstrated execution speed (1st to market in Pennsylvania and Ohio), Cresco has built a strong reputation in a short period of time.  Including its recently announced (and well-timed) acquisition in Florida, this company now has interests in 11 states with an aggregate population of 151 million people.  On a pro forma basis, it has 21 dispensaries open, and is licensed for an aggregate of 51.  In our view, the company’s focus on branded products and distribution entrenches it firmly in the most lucrative and defensible points of the cannabis supply chain. Moreover, we believe this approach and well articulated marketing plan make the company a highly compatible acquisition target for major CPG companies”…the Cresco-Origin House deal, which is expected to close by the end of June, comes amid a flurry of M&A activity within the North American cannabis sector that appears to be warming up as pot companies eye consolidation to stand out in a crowded field…

6. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has set its first public hearing looking to legalize CBD in food and drinks for May 31…the agency wants data on CBD’s safety in food products and feedback on how it might regulate manufacturing, marketing and labeling, according to a notice posted this morning in the Federal Register… “The goal of the hearing is to obtain additional scientific data and other information related to cannabis and cannabis-derived compounds, both from botanical and synthetic sources, to inform our regulatory oversight of these products,” the agency said…the hearing will be at its headquarters outside of Washington, DC…CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant that promises to relax the body without altering the mind like THC…while the federal government legalized CBD that’s derived from hemp, a close cousin of marijuana, the FDA’s rules still currently prohibit companies and restaurants from adding it to food or drinks…

7. Manhattan real estate has just experienced its worst 1st quarter since the financial crisis, capping the longest losing streak for sales in over 30 years, according to a new report…a new “mansion tax” approved by New York state legislators over the weekend will layer another tax on the sale of multi-million-dollar homes and add further pressure to a market already under stress, according to real estate experts…meanwhile, the Green Monster in British Columbia is succeeding in its goal of making housing “more affordable”, at least for those living in Greater Vancouver where home sales just had their worst month of March since 1986…last month featured just a little over 1,700 transactions as a slowdown intensified, according to figures just released by the Canadian Real Estate Association…prices have dropped, though not evenly throughout the area, in an environment where there’s a significant gap between what sellers and buyers are expecting from the market…
