Opportunities Created by High Gold Prices
By admin September 7th, 2011
The well-publicized gold bubble – the high prices being paid for precious metals has created many opportunities for average people to make extra cash. A person can sell objects made from gold, silver, platinum and other precious metals to a buyer.
This can be done through a store, an online service or a buying event at a hotel or motel. There are many places that a person can get such items assessed in communities like Astoria, NY. Buyers in large urban areas like Queens often pay higher prices for silver and other precious metals than those in other cities. Persons traveling to New York for business or pleasure should definitely consider selling their items while they are in the Big Apple.
How You can Cash in On the Gold Boom
There is also a way that a person who does not have any jewelry, coins or other values can cash in on the gold bubble. Anybody can host their own gold-buying event in their home or a public place.
These events are called gold parties and they are a great way to make extra cash and help the people in your community. Your friends, neighbors, coworkers and others can come and bring their values and sell them. You collect a percentage of the profits made from the buying and selling at the event.
The best part of a gold party is that there is not little or no cost to you. The companies that put these events on will pay for everything including the buyer, the cash, and even the refreshments. All you have to do is find a place to throw it and invite the people you know.
It is far better than network marketing, Amway or Tupperware because people take no risk and can actually make some money. You can even throw one to benefit your child’s school, your house of worship, your favorite charity or your child’s sports league. A gold-gold buying party can be a great benefit for a person or family that is sick or has suffered a tragedy.
Everybody can profit from the gold-bubble if they move quickly because the bubble will end and prices will fall sooner or later. They can do so without taking risks on their own.
A Unique Business Opportunity Created by Gold Prices
By admin August 28th, 2011
Many people need extra cash in today’s economy but they don’t have it. To make matters many sources of extra cash including part time jobs, tips, e-bay auctions, garage sales and part time businesses are drying up. In many cases, garage sales and part time businesses flop because our friends and neighbors simply do not have the cash to spend at them.
Well there is one kind of part time business that seems to be doing very well in this economy: gold parties. Such a party is an informal gathering where a person hosts a gold buyer in his or her home or a public place. People bring valuables the buyer evaluates them and offers cash for them.
The party’s host gets a cut of the profit and takes no risk by hosting it because the gold-buying company runs the party. It pays for everything including the buyer and the refreshments. All a person needs to provide to host a gold party is a place to hold the event and a group of people with stuff to sell. Today’s gold prices guarantee that most people who come with gold will walk out with some cash.
Neither the host nor the sellers take any risk because they are under no obligation to accept the buyer’s offer. The host puts up no money and takes no risk so it is the perfect part time business opportunity. If it does not work out you don’t have to host one again. If it works you can do it again and make some more cash.
Best of all you have an opportunity to help your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers. Almost everybody has valuables they don’t want lying around the house or taking up space in safety deposit boxes. Now with the high price of gold many companies are buying gold because the demand is higher than ever.
And it’s not just gold that they are buying. Other valuables they are offering money for include:
- Old watches
- Old coins
People can bring any item to sell whether it is made of gold or not. The buyer can look at it and tell them whether it is worth money or not. They take no risk and they can leave with extra cash in their pockets. You can make some extra money and help your friends and neighbors with what they need most these days: extra cash.
Some of the things buyers are looking for include:
- Scrap gold
- Gold jewelry
- Broken jewelry
- Silver and gold fixtures
- Gold coins
- Gold chains and bands

The Middletown Jewelry Exchange located at Middletown, Connecticut celebrated a successful year in business. The store buys unwanted jewelry i.e. gold and silver. The store buys the jewelry and sells them back to other customers. This way the store is able to sell jewelry at good prices. The unusable jewelry is sold back to the United States Government after melting.
The gold helps the economy as the gold is used as collateral when the country borrows from other economies.
The shop has an Italian theme. There are customers who even come to the shop only because of the music it plays. The shop is one of the most successful business models that appeared since the prices of gold shot up.
It’s owner Tomasso Rosiello believes all that is needed to have a successful business all you need is honesty. Also he states that his hop is a jewelry exchange and not a pawn shop.
” The shop does not give cash loans”

Canadian government stops mining project due to environment concerns
By admin November 7th, 2010
The Canadian government has blocked a controversial gold-copper mine project in B.C.’s Chilcotin, citing environmental concerns.
Announced by the Canadian federal Environment Minister Jim Prentice, the decision overrules the British Columbia government’s decision to allow the major project to proceed.
British Columbia’s government stated that the federal government decision was disappointing but stated that it was not yet ready to declare the project dead.
B.C’s Minister of State for Mining, Hawes said in a statement that the groups involved should go back and take a look to see if there’s a way that the project could be edited in such a way that the project would get approval from the government. He also added that he has already talked to the company behind the project.
Taseko Mines had proposed an open pit mine at a site near Williams Lake, promising that the project would create a lot of new jobs and development of the region over a 22 year span.
It had already spent $100 million over the last 17 years for this project to get the nod.
In its decision, the Canadian government pointed to the fact the mine would result in the destruction of local landmarks such as Fish Lake, Little Fish Lake and portions of Fish Creek apart from the deforestation.

What would you do if you ever saw a room full of treasure? Go mad is what I would do.
Yamashita’s gold, also known as the Yamashita treasure, is the name given to the loot stolen in Southeast Asia by the Japanese forces during World War II and hidden in caves and underground chambers in the Philippines. It is named for the Japanese General Yamashita, nicknamed “The Tiger of Malaya”. Though accounts state that the treasure remain hidden in the Philippines which has lured treasure hunters from around the world for over fifty years, its existence is still disputed by most experts. The rumored treasure has been the subject of a complex lawsuit that was filed in a Hawaiian court in 1988 filed by treasure hunter named Rogelio Roxas against the former president of the Phillipines, Ferdinand Marcos.
Yamashita’s gold, though not mentioned by that name, serves as a major plot element of Cryptonomicon, a novel by Neal Stephenson. A film about the alleged treasure, Yamashita: The Tiger’s Treasure, directed by Chito S. Roño was also released in the Philippines in 2001.
Cash for gold scam hits England
By admin October 28th, 2010
A new type of cash for gold scam has emerged in the Northolt, England. The scammers knock on doors and offer to pay people cash for broken, scrap and unwanted Gold. They claim to pay the best prices, but will not pay what the items are truly worth. These con artists are very persuasive and can get way with what they want and wont leave their victims with even a small idea that they have been robbed in broad daylight.
Having gained entry into the victims house, the offenders will use distraction techniques to steal items without the occupier’s knowledge. Alternatively, if the items are too big, the criminals will return at a later date to steal them.
If the occupier is not home then the con artists will leave a leaflet stating that jewelery, watches, artwork, old coins, carvings, military items or antiques will be bought with no questions asked and give a contact number to make an appointment at a later date.
The description of the main suspect working in Northolt is a white man, slim build, approximate age 40-50 years, with light colored receding hair.
Beware of bad bullion dealers: It may be a scam
By admin October 19th, 2010
Three nonprofit organizations involved with gold coins are offering suggestions to investors and collectors who did not receive merchandise ordered from gold sellers, received merchandise that were not as described when they ordered it or didn’t receive payment for gold they submitted to sell.
In a recent case, “Howard” in Mississippi wired $20,000 several months ago to a California coin and bullion dealer to purchase gold coins. With the recent run-up in bullion prices he would have made a nice profit, except that he still has not received any gold from the dealer. Howard says, “All I’ve gotten is the run-around.”
“If you don’t know gold coins, you’d better know your gold coin dealer,” is the advice to collectors and investors from three nonprofit organizations websites: www.money.org, www.ictaonline.org and www.pngdealers.com.
There are many reputable and professional numismatists in the country. Before you make a purchase or sell, do your homework and check the dealer’s credentials.
A listof Better Business Bureau accredited and rated companies nationwide can be found online at www.bbb.org.
Korean Environment Ministry recycles cell phones for gold
By admin September 30th, 2010
The Bank of Korea thinks that gold isn’t the trend and holds just 0.2 percent of the country’s gold reserve but it’s Environment Ministry really knows the value of gold. It was recently working with several institutions to salvage gold from mobile phones. Together, a million cell were recycled for precious metals like gold and silver. A single cell phone reaps about $2. So that is around $2 million in revenues. Not such a bad idea, is it ?
“Not only the government, but also mobile companies as well as elementary, middle schools and high schools across the country participated in the event, ” the Environment Ministry said. It plans to hold such event on a regular basis after seeing the positive outcomes of the project.
Korea is one of the largest consumer of mobile phones and Koreans are known to be change cell phones a lot. So it seems like the people at the Korean Environment Ministry have really done their homework.

Edible gold ?? you may be wondering what that is ? Is it really edible ?? These are the few things that you might be wondering about when you first hear the word “edible gold”. Calm down. you have not gone crazy, because edible gold exists. It is nothing but 24 karat gold that is mixed with traces of other metals to form different colors.
Silver is especially used along with gold because it is edible. If you are worrying about the dangers of ingesting gold, then don’t worry. Edible gold will pass out of your body after 24 hours without
any damage done to your body.
In Europe, edible gold is used in food to eventuate the look of the food. The idea of using gold in food is not to ingest gold into the human body but to make the food look good. The lesser you use the gold and the more attractive it looks, the better. The idea of using edible gold comes mainly form the Italians, they used it during the 16th century on fruits. The Japanese have also been known been to use it in the sake.
One doesn’t need to go to Europe to find edible gold anymore as more and more companies are selling them in the United States now a days.
Gold parties in England
By admin July 5th, 2010
Gold teeth, a £1,000 cigarette lighter and gold coins are some of the items that have turned up in pubs in England where gold parties are being organized by a company called partycash4gold to organize people to sell their their gold through these parties.
Similar schemes that involve mailing in gold in special pouches to a gold agency are quite well known, but the party concept hasn’t really caught on yet.
Both ideas come from the US and arrived in this country around two years ago, spurred on by the recession as well as the rising price of gold. Many pub goers liked the idea that they could sell their broken necklaces and single earrings at reasonable prices. The event is targeted at people who do not want visit their local pawn shop as they would feel uncomfortable and judged at a time when everyone is trying to save money.
But in a pub it’s a social environment where everyone is having a good time. The social aspect of gold parties in a pub takes away the inevitable emotional side of selling jewellery and other items that may bring up memories of other social occasions or loved ones.
The pubs receive 10 per cent of the money raised from the gold party. And if someone goes away and hosts their own gold party, the pub will get a further three per cent of the total sales from this too.
Hi Joyce, I just wanted to tell you that, although we had a small group, we had such a good time at my Gold Party last night. My husband and I felt that Eric did such a great job and even my 13-year-old son was so impressed with the whole process and enjoyed being ''taught'' by Eric. I would love to schedule another party for mid-January and if possible, request Eric again.
