Author, Andrew Sheldon

Global Mining Investing is a reference eBook to teach investors how to think and act as investors with a underlying theme of managing risk. The book touches on a huge amount of content which heavily relies on knowledge that can only be obtained through experience...The text was engaging, as I knew the valuable outcome was to be a better thinker and investor.

While some books (such as Coulson’s An Insider’s Guide to the Mining Sector) focus on one particular commodity this book (Global Mining Investing) attempts (and does well) to cover all types of mining and commodities.

Lycopodium Ltd (LYL.ASX)

Anyone who knows the mining industry will tell you that Lycopodium is synonymous with mining feasibility, design and technical studies that need to performed before a project can secure a mining licence or financing. There is no question that during a commodities boom like the present one, there are likely to be a lot of staff leaving your business to set up their own consultancies. I know its happening because I see all these new names in the industry compared to 5 years ago when there were only a hand-full. The implication is that companies like Lycopodium are having to pay more to retain staff, or needing to outsource to pay more to outsource to staff that previously worked for them, as well as paying the price for the higher staff turnover that these disruptions cause. The flipside is that the problem is industry-wide, so these engineering consultants are able to pass on the costs to their customers whom are earning record prices for commodities, or are well supported by equity markets for capital. These large companies are also tending to pick up the larger more lucrative contracts, whilst the recently departed fight over the scraps, and maybe do a bad job besides.
There is no shortage of work for mining consultants, and companies are always going to sign up those that have a good reputation and can do a good job. Thus I think buying into a mining consultant like Lycopodium makes good sense when they fall back to trend support (see chart). See Google Finance and my discussion forum for more information.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life. Check out the "feedback" in our blog for stories of success by customers of our previous reports.
