MINING.com receives numerous emails every week from around the world offering us good deals on anything from europium oxide to cold rolled steel, not to mention second-hand excavators or a discount on an Ulan Bator apartment for rent.
But this particular message sent from a nondescript gmail account and the accompanying photos caught our eye.
On offer was "perennial supply of gold ore" purportedly of "superior quality" but with no purity rating at "PRICE $42000 PER KG _". The ruling price for gold on Monday was closer to $55,000 per kilogram of gold.
What do you think about this deal? Or is all that glisters not gold?
