    TIER ONE SILVER INTERSECTS 1,480.5 G/T SILVER EQUIVALENT OVER 1 METER ON THE MADRE STRUCTURE AT CURIBAYA Tier One Silver released some highly positive news from their Curibaya Project in Peru. CEO Peter Dembicki explaind that, “[Drill] Hole #6 is the first plus-kilogram intercept at Curibaya on a feeder vein that may host the extensive high-grade silver on surface, which gives us the confidence that we are in the infancy of a new silver discovery. Drilling along structures that have yielded positive channel sample results is proving to be a sound strategy as the Company looks to realize the vast potential of the property indicated through high-grade silver mineralization on surface.“ Senior VP of Exploration David Smithson, speaking to us from the core shack at Curibaya, further clarified, “The positive results from hole 6 represent a major advancement in our understanding of the controls on high-grade mineralization within the project. The combination of alteration vectoring, targeting the margins of high chargeability anomalies and surface geochemical channel sampling is paying dividends with the drill. These results continue to support our view that Curibaya has the potential for a major discovery.” Clearly these results are a major milestone in Tier One's advancement towards a major discovery. Smithson suspects that there are a number of similar structures throughout their extensive land package and the team believes that their thesis has been further validated. Results are due in for 9 more holes. Dembicki is expecting more good news. As shareholders we're excitedly looking forward to the next release. Website: Ticker Symbols: OTCQB: TSLVF — TSX-V: TSLV

Over the last couple of years we have seen $6 trillion handed out to increase consumption, but the balance increase is going to be $0 in 2022. Will the markets be able to survive in these conditions?

Highlights: -The notion of ‘transitory' inflation is focus group driven and is not realistic -Thanksgiving Turkey alone this year could be over $100 for ten people -The central bank was finally able to launch modern monetary theory—borrowing money from the treasury, giving it to consumers, and printing it all -Countries like Israel are experiencing hyper-inflation -Next year, this will probably melt down -We have a fiscal and monetary cliff heading into 2022 -There is going to be a crash in asset prices -You may see a crash in real estate bonds outside of treasuries which could cause inflation to crash all at once -In 2 years, $6 trillion was handed out to increase consumption, and the balance increase is going to be $0 in 2022 -The stock market will most likely look like it did in 2018, and crumble in a month or two -2022 is going to look nothing like the previous two years -Inflation is a monetary phenomenon—it's not what happens as a result of shortages -Is the Fed going to let all these markets collapse? -We are probably headed towards a blockchain currency managed by the Fed—there wouldn't even have to be a treasury -Real interest rates are not going to go much higher -Gold is going to trade much more towards the level of real interest rates -China saved the global economy to a great extent in 2008 with construction projects, but they can't do that again -No one country will be able to save us from what's happening in 2022 Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Pento Portfolio Strategies Interest Rates will Skyrocket if Fed Keeps Printing Money – Michael Pento with Greg Hunter Ahead: Runaway Inflation & Bail-Ins | Michael Pento Tofu Dreg Article

    Summary: We are currently experiencing the highest inflation we've seen in about 30 years, and I sit down and chat with Michael Busler to discuss some of the factors that have played into this. This is something that we experienced back in the 70s, and it is likely here to stay. Inflation is manifesting in a number of areas including energy and working wages—fueled by supply chain shortages and people leaving the workforce to receive money from the government. Something has to give, and we must show resistance to increasing prices if we want to avoid further damage to the economy. Highlights: -Is Build Back Better going to happen? We have inflation, an infrastructure bill, and a lot of other factors -This is the highest inflation we've seen in about 30 years -The Biden administration and the Federal Reserve say that it will go away—but this is not necessarily true -They want the price of fossil fuels to increase, and have carried this out by restricting the supply -Energy prices are going to rise in these conditions—manufacturers are also paying more to get energy -Energy inflation is here to stay -Wage inflation is also a major problem—3 million workers left the job market during COVID and are not returning -Businesses had to raise the starting wage of these workers to get them back, and had to raise them for other workers as well -The government has spend $6 million more than they've brought in in tax revenue in the last 2 years -These things should not be passed at this time since we're already in a hole -Even when the supply chain issue is resolved, there are still number of other things causing inflation -We could end up having stagflation, which we haven't seen since the late 1970s -The 70s was a great time to be a debtor -As long as people keep receiving free money, they start to expect it.

The company has four projects, all of which show great potential. As far is which one is the most promising, McCoy likens it to picking your favorite child, a hard task at best.

This has helped form a better understand the underlying geology and to further refine future drill targeting. Eminent is not just another Johnny-Come-Lately Nevada gold explorer. Their projects are in close proximity to other large past and present producing mines. They've upped the game by looking for gold in places where others haven't previously ventured. They're using the latest technology to re-examine historic projects.

Wallace mentioned that Santa Cecilia was always their major goal. He had been hinting at something big during our last interview and now he's delivered. At 32.5 square kilometers, it's sitting on a major system in the world-class Maricunga belt. Some historical work had been done in the 1990's, and then it inexplicably sat on ice for decades, ignored by all. According to Henrichsen, “This is the real deal… The initial discovery has already been made…” Now they just have to identify the most promising targets. It's an extremely unique place, which explains why the team spent the better part of two years on its acquisition. Henrichsen's global mining network was instrumental in getting the deal done, especially in light of the global health concerns that made international travel all but impossible. To sum it all up, Wallace says, “The Santa Cecilia gold-copper project represents the culmination of our acquisition strategy in Chile. It is our belief that exploration at a project of this magnitude will be transformative for Torq. Now that the project is in place, it's time to start to realize its exploration potential.” Ticker Symbols - TSX.V : TORQ OTCQX : TRBMF

It enters the economy and goes through Wall Street -Interest rates are being pushed very low which allows the federal banks to run deficits -Every time the alarms go off, we step back and don't resist the tremendous increase in spending -We need a competitive currency we can use in case the dollar collapses -We need to take taxes off minor things (gold, silver, bitcoin) -Congress debates are a rush for power, and economic issues have taken a backseat -We're in the midst of national emergency, so economics take a backseat -The huge spending is hollowing out our economy, making it less productive in the future -The government has shut down large parts of the production structure, and we are still seeing the effects of this -If the fed raises interest rates in a serious way, we are going to have a collapse -We have to stop increasing the money supply and bring spending down as much as possible -The people who have been saving will benefit from this collapse, or the move back to more realistic pricing -In this situation, you don't know what's happening until it's too late Useful Links: Financial Survival Network Mises Institute
