Battery cars are part of the problem
Elon Musk is celebrated at the stock markets. You can't really explain it. Where would the company stand today without environmental bonuses and subsidies? In Berlin the creation of jobs and the settlement of further companies is hailed by the new Tesla plant, while elsewhere the lights go out. The battery as an energy storage device is controversial and the energy mix in Germany is not designed for electric mobility.
In June 2020, the Institute for World Economy published a study that shows the increase in CO2 emissions for every additional electricity consumer. While a modern diesel is at 173 g CO2 per kilometer, a battery car emits 300 g CO2 per kilometer. In 2019, Tesla generated USD 780.06 per second in sales. Compared to the leader Volkswagen with 9,202.88 USD per second, this value is very low. It is doubtful whether an innovation that is only appealing with taxpayers' money can survive in the long run.
Golden times have begun
Anyone interested in the oldest currency in the world should take a look at the value added. Scottie Resources from Canada owns the former producing Scottie gold mine and other properties as well as the option to acquire claims adjacent to the Scottie gold mine property. In total, the exploration company owns 24,589 hectares of properties in British Columbia's Golden Triangle, one of the most productive mineralized areas in the world.
Bradley Rourke, the company's CEO, recently issued a news release providing insight into the Company's development: "With our strong financial position, favourable market conditions and abundance of drill targets, we have decided to increase the metres drilled this summer. The addition of a second drill rig allows us to test new prospective zones and improve the cost efficiency of drilling additional metres given that all the infrastructure and personnel are already in place."
The company has now added a second drill rig to its Scottie Gold Project, which will increase the number of holes drilled by 40%, an additional 2,000 metres for the drilling program. A total of 7,000 metres of drilling is now targeted for the 2020 summer season. The current drill program will follow up on the successful work of the 2019 season when intercepts of 7.44 g/t gold over 34.78 m at the Blueberry Vein, 11.72 g/t gold over 10.95 m at the past producing Scottie Gold Mine, and 73.32 g/t gold over 4.38 m at the Bend Vein were discovered.
The air is getting thinner
While Scottie Resources' investors are likely to see a higher share price if the drilling program continues to be successful, Apple's investors should slowly be aware that the trees can no longer grow to the sky. It remains to be seen what impact the global economic downturn will have on consumer behavior. After all, Apple devices are expensive and high-quality premium products and some customers might be tiring out their lifespan in times of the Corona pandemic - and forego buying a new one.
