I call upon my erudite colleagues to translate what todays RNS is revealing. - For the life of me I can't make it out. - So, explanations in simple English as though I were a six-year old would be appreciated. - Don't have a go if you don't understand, that will only create more confusion. @-)

Paul Tudor speaking.....President Donald Trump's tariff battle with China boosts the chances of a Federal Reserve reduction, setting the stage for the strategy. The trade is part of a standard playbook he calls "first rate cut 101". That includes being long rates, gold and "at some point short the dollar", Jones said on Tuesday in an interview.
Gold is his favourite pick in the next 12 to 24 months. If it hits $US1400, it will quickly move to $US1700, he said. It now trades at about $US1334.
Jones said the Fed is "probably on the cusp of the first rate cut after a long hiking cycle".
MORE to come....thanks to crazy bullying TRUMP!!!
Many of the problems in the world are caused by US foreign policy because it wants to continue to sell arms and get other countries hooked on the petro dollar.
Iran has made no threats in fact the government is comparatively moderate when compared to other governments in the region.
Iran was supplying other countries the EU and UK with cheaper gas and oil than the US could , Trump wants to get other countries dependant upon US shale gas, an industry that causes considerable damage to the environment and has long term implications for the environment.
The US is no friend to the rest of the world ias t manipulates the rest of the worlds currencies and trade markets by keeping the reserve currency dollar artificially strong.
Perhaps if Trumps governments Foreign policy didn't prop up corrupt dictatorial governments and promote war, unrest and instability in other countries there wouldn't be so many poor people trying to seek sanctuary in the US.
Trump claims that global warming is fake news, this despite the fact that world are already suffering the consequences and whilst most other countries including China are working towards cutting environmental pollution Trump is reopening filthy coal power stations and coal mines just to keep the thick and stupid red
neck voters happy.
Trump is a bully who misuses his power of office, he is certainly no devil that I would care to know thank you.
mrtibbles - better the devil you know. As bad as Trumps rhetoric and political acumen is, he will be voted out at some point. And we need US influence and support when it comes to the global stage in facing down perceived threats.
Sadly even our prime minister makes false claims about the true state of the UK economy!
Shame that some of the candidates for our next prime minister are prepared to do deals with Trump, how on earth can they hope to be treated by such an odious obnoxious person?
United States President Donald Trump warned additional tariffs on Chinese goods would go into effect if his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping doesn't attend the G20 summit. "Tariffs are a great negotiating tool, great revenue producers and, most importantly, a powerful way to get companies to come to the USA and to get companies that have left us for other lands to come back home," he tweeted on Tuesday
Trump has no idea of diplomacy or how to behave, what a complete and utter disgrace to have this arrogant sexist racist as an American president!
Trumps' supporters have been making false claims about the support Trump has in the UK

Definitely worth a listen to this guy, one fo the useful economists!. > Gary Shilling says the U.S. entered a recession in the second quarter this year. He gave a 66% probability lats in Jan 2019 ....He explains why he expects it to be a mild recession and outlines the potential crises he sees on the horizon
his track record...looks something like this
In the spring of 1969, he was one of only a few analysts who correctly envisioned the recession at year's end, and was almost a lone voice in 1973, when he forecast a monolithic international inventory-building fling, followed by the first significant recession since the Great Depression.
In the late 1970s, while most analysts presumed that waxing inflation would go on unabated, Shilling was the first to predict that America's infirm political climate would impede it. He also foresaw various dangerous economic readjustment problems and a shift in investment strategy from a preference for tangible assets to an increased emphasis on stocks and bonds.
In June 2011, he predicted a 20% drop in housing in 2012 with a resulting global recession. In October 2012 he predicted a global recession in 2013.
In August 2015, he predicted that the price of oil "is headed for $10 to $20 per barrel" (it was $43/barrel at the time) due to higher productivity through fracking and OPEC not limiting production.
IF THE EXPANSION IS ON THE SAME LEASE, AND TH EASE IS STILL CURRENT, THE OLD LAW WILL STILL APPLY, UNLESS CENTAMIN WANTED TO CHANGE THIS, AND THEN A CHANGE MIGHT BE MADE TO COMPLY WITH ANY NEW LEGISLATURE. WORKS LIKE THIS EVERYWHERE I HAVE BEEN.
Yes indeed a big thank you Cowicahan for this news!
Considering that "Al Fakerani" case claimed that the terms of the present Sukari concession agreement weren't fair to the Egyptian people when it is compared to these new terms the present agreement seems to be more than fair towards the Egypt!
The way I read the law,was ,current agreements will stand until renewal of licence.
Which means expansion from within the 160 km square area will not change.
New exploration outside that area means new terms..
That is unless they give up the current disputed area and are allowed to re-license under the the new terms.
I think some of the info dribbling out to the media is partly stone quarry related.
That said I would expect with all the professional consultations, and input from the gold mining players (namely Centamin!) we'll get away from the current profit share scheme. Doesn't that sound good on our frequently boxed ears?!
The real trick or treat will be what becomes of Centamin's current arrangement. Will an expansion rewrite the agreement completely? What would that do to the share price?
We're somewhere we've never been before — POSSIBLY on the cusp of good news. I've got a bottle of champagne ready just in case. ;-)
Than you Cowichan for your excellent information. I'm sure I speak for many in expressing my gratitude.
The 5% - 20% payments based upon annual-production with an additional 6% to home governorate is an interesting one. - I though payments linked to productivity had been knocked on the head, or am I misinterpreting?
LEGISLATION WATCH- Mineral Resources Act amendments expected to receive House sign-off before the summer recess: The House of Representatives is expected to give its final approval on the amendments to the Mineral Resources Act before it goes on recess in July, an Oil Ministry source told Al Shorouk on Monday. The amendments received committee-level approval last week.
*Expect tenders to be issued soon after the law is passed. The source revealed that the ministry is planning to issue new mining tenders some time this year once the law is approved.
The ministry source spilled the beans on other amendments:
1) There will be separate contracts and agreements for exploration and extraction.
2) Companies will have to pay a minimum royalty of 5% of annual production, with a 20% cap being set.
3) Mining firms will have to pay 6% of a mine’s annual production to the home governorate.
4) Governorates can recommend amending this “rent” but a final say can only come from the prime minister. Under current legislation, governorates had the power to dictate the payout every four years.
Cairo: Centennium Egypt spent about $ 100 million to develop the sugar mine in 2018, according to Shadi Al Rajhi, director of the company's internal audit department.
Al-Rajhi said in statements to «Al-Mal» that what was spent last year raises the company's investments in the mine to 1.3 billion dollars, equivalent to about 23 billion pounds, since 2010.
The company began operating in Egypt in 2010, despite the signing of the production agreement in the mid-nineties of the last century by a law issued by the President of the Republic.
Al Rajhi pointed out that the company will not inject any new investments during 2019, explaining that it has broken down about 17 million tons of rock during the last quarter of 2018.
In 2018, the production of pentamine dropped to 472.
4 ounces of gold in its sugar mine in Egypt over the course of the year, compared to 540 thousand in 2017.
Al Rajhi explained that the company is currently developing a strategy for the fifth and sixth stages of mine development, which will start implementation next year, pointing out that the total cost was not monitored for them.
He revealed that the total production of the company from the sugar mine amounted to about 117 tons of gold by the end of 2018, and plans to increase in the coming years.
He pointed out that the full shipments of sugar project gold are exported to Canada for purification at the laboratories of the metal, and sell them at international prices.
The sugar reserves are estimated at 15.5 million ounces of gold, making it one of the largest gold mines in the world.
Al-Mal said last week that Sentin-Egypt gold mines were targeting between 540 and 550,000 ounces in 2019, an increase of 80,000 from 2018.
Exports of sugar mine represent about 2% of Egypt's total exports, according to official data from Sentinam. Two Egyptian gold companies are currently operating, namely the Australian Pharaonic Australian and the Makhzulding,
