With stocks plunging and gold and silver still consolidating recent gains, today King World News interviewed billionaire Eric Sprott, Chairman of the $10 billion strong Sprott Asset Management to get his take on the action. When asked about gold Sprott replied, “I think it’s explosive. As you know James Sinclair said, ‘When it goes through $1,764 it’s going to $12,000,’ and I for one am not ruling out that kind of development here. It could be very explosive as more and more people worry about one, fiat currencies, two, sovereign debt and three, bank deposits. It would take very little to spill into gold to make a dramatic difference in where the price will be.”
When asked about the mining shares Sprott stated, “I think it’s becoming obvious to everyone that it’s the one area that you can feel safe to invest in. We are witnessing events unfolding that are suggesting to us that we are finally seeing a differentiation in the market between gold stocks and general stocks.
