This Week on StockHouse

Friday, October 27, 2006By Sean Mason
Uranium prices could be set to soar according to Venture Friday columnist Don Whiteley, who wonders if "peak uranium" is far away.

Metals and mining
Mongolia is hot for mining issues, says columnist Danny Deadlock in Microcap Monday, citing Rio Tinto's recent investment in Ivanhoe Mines. He's looking at a junior that explores for uranium.
Uranium is also the subject of this week's Venture Friday column by Don Whiteley. Is "peak uranium" so far away?
Some metals in particular are seeing sharp increases in price, thanks to a supply/demand imbalance. Uranium is one such metal, but Luke Burgess believes demand for high-quality manganese ore should drive producer prices higher in Pure Metals.
Meanwhile, the gold price could move even lower according to columnist Michael Berry in Discovery Investing.
But, opposing opinions are what makes a market. Steven Saville argues long-term trends, like the bull market for gold, end when valuations reach extremes.
