For its Wednesday, May 17, 2023 Discussion Group seminar, CIM’s Management and Economics Society (MES), as part of its quarterly Perspectives & Insights on Metals and Mines series, is pleased to welcome:

Jeffrey M. Christian

Managing Partner, CPM Group


who will deliver an online presentation on:

Gold & Silver Landscape is Changing? An Analysis of Supply, Demand, Prices, and Refining


Abstract: Jeffrey Christian will discuss the current and future fundamentals of gold and silver markets, including mine production, production costs, fabrication and investment, expansion of global refining capacity at different geographic locations, and trends of central bank buying and selling of gold. He will contrast these realities to the marketing hype and suppositions rampant in the precious metals markets. He also will discuss prices and the reasons, good and bad, for the large spreads between wholesale prices like Comex and London spot and the retail prices for smaller precious metal investment products. Is there any significant merit for the producers to strategize for these opportune spreads?


About our presenter:

Mr. Christian is considered one of the most knowledgeable experts on precious metals markets, commodities in general, and financial engineering using options for hedging and investing purposes. He is the author of Commodities Rising: The Reality Behind the Hype and How To Really Profit in the Commodities Market (2006).

Jeffrey Christian has been active in the industry since the 1970s and has expertise in a range of commodity markets, including precious metals, energy, base metals, and agriculture. He founded the CPM Group in 1986, which was spun off from Goldman Sachs & Co and its trading arm, J. Aron & Company.

About CIM MES’ Mineral Economics Discussion Group:

Since the mid-1980s, meetings of the Mineral Economics Discussion Group have taken place approximately once per month in Toronto between September and April. A regular program of meetings has taken place in Vancouver since 2015 and in Montreal since 2017. Speakers have addressed almost every aspect of the minerals industry except for strictly technical topics in geology, mining, and metallurgical engineering. A collegial, seminar-style atmosphere is fostered in order to allow lively discussion and exchange of ideas, with opportunities to network and socialize at live events. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, a full program has been maintained in a webinar format that better serves all our CIM and CIM MES members and guests throughout Canada and internationally.
