Monetary Metals Leases Gold to Brite Metals

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Monetary Metals® announced today that it has leased gold to UK-based Brite Metals. The lease enables Brite Metals to buy gold from Latin American gold miners, and sell it to European refiners.

The Latin American gold mining industry has faced difficulties in recent years. Several refiners have stopped buying their output, amidst a growing anti-money laundering compliance burden.

Brite Metals develops a platform to satisfy OECD/LBMA compliance guidelines, and efficiently make the data visible to the entire supply chain. This allows the gold to come to bullion buyers via market-making refiners, and hence the miners can be paid fairly for the value of the gold they produce.

The initial lease tranche was raised off-market, and the interest rate is not published yet.

Monetary Metals has a disruptive model, leasing gold and silver from investors who own it and providing it to businesses who need it, typically for inventory or work-in-progress. Investors benefit by earning a return, rather than paying storage costs. Metal-using businesses benefit, as the lease tends to be their lowest-cost capital. Leasing is more user-friendly, with no need for hedges, because it is not on the balance sheet. The gold remains the property of the investors, so it would not go to the creditors of the lessee (or Monetary Metals), in case of a bankruptcy.

"Gold is so valuable, that no law can keep it from coming to market. What the explosion of compliance has done, is force miners in developing countries to accept lower and lower prices, with increasing profits going to smugglers and bad actors," said Keith Weiner, CEO of Monetary Metals. He continued, "The brilliance of Brite Metals' innovation is that it combines ethical buying of the gold with all necessary compliance."

"Monetary Metals' gold lease enables us to make money by doing good," said Mike Greenacre, CEO of Brite Metals.

Seoul unsure if North Korea will air World Cup qualifier

May 29, 2020

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea said Thursday it's unclear if North Korea will allow a live broadcast when it hosts the South's national soccer team for a World Cup qualifier in Pyongyang next Tuesday. Seoul's Unification Ministry, which deals with inter-Korean affairs, said the North has been ignoring South Korean calls for discussions on broadcasting the game live and allowing South Korean spectators to attend. "There has been no particular progress on the issues of (sending South Korean) cheering squads or providing broadcast coverage, so they won't be easy," since there's only a few days left until the game,...

Pell's appeal pitted word of former choirboy against priest

May 29, 2020

CANBERRA, Australia — Cardinal George Pell's appeal against his convictions for child molestation was largely a question of who the jury should have believed, his accuser or a senior priest whose church role was likened to Pell's bodyguard. Pell's accuser was a 13-year-old choirboy when he alleged that he was abused by then-Melbourne Archbishop Pell at the city's St. Patrick's Cathedral in December 1996 and February 1997. Monsignor Charles Portelli was a master of ceremonies at the 11 a.m. Sunday Masses where the choir sang. A chorister in the 1990s, David Dearing, told police that Portelli, Pell's right-hand man, was...

Chinese pop stars publicly back Beijing on Hong Kong

May 29, 2020

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing's growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month. Lay Zhang, Jackson Wang, Lai Kuan-lin and Victoria Song were among the K-pop singers who recently uploaded a Chinese flag and declared themselves as "one of 1.4 billion guardians of the Chinese flag" on...

China bans movies, actors from prominent Taiwan film awards

May 29, 2020

BEIJING — China said Wednesday it was banning Chinese movies and actors from participating in Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, one of the Asian film industry's most prestigious honors, as Beijing ramps up economic and political pressure on the island it claims as its own territory. The one-sentence announcement on the microblog of China Film News, a newspaper affiliated with government film regulator, gave no reason for the suspension, but it comes amid rising tensions over Taiwan's refusal to recognize being part of Chinese territory to eventually be brought under Beijing's rule. Even without the ban, Chinese artists might have found...
