It's been an open secret in the industry, but we're hard at work planning to host this year's New Orleans Investment Conference in person.

Enough of this pandemic craziness -- we can't wait to meet you face-to-face, shake hands, have a few hugs, and catch up like we just can't do in a virtual setting.

Honey Badger Silver's Chad Williams
talks with Chris Marcus of Arcadia Economics

Honey Badger Silver's executive chairman, Chad Williams, tells Chris Marcus of Arcadia Economics that "inflation is here" already and that rising interest rates didn't impede gold and silver in the 1970s and won't necessarily impede them today. 

Honey Badger Silver is a Canadian silver company based in Toronto that is building a portfolio of silver and other assets. The company has a big position in Ontario's prolific Thunder Bay Silver District. The company's shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol TUF and over the counter in the U.S. as HBEIF. The company's internet site is here:

Williams' interview with Marcus is 25 minutes long and can be viewed at YouTube here:

As things are progressing, and subject as always to unforeseen developments, it looks like everything will fall into place by the October 19-22 dates of this year's event. The United States looks safely on trend. (As I write, Louisiana has just dropped its mask mandate and is actually refusing its full allocation of vaccines.

On the other hand, Canada -- where so many of our friends and supporters reside -- is a bit behind, but I'm confident they'll be in good shape by mid-summer.

So we're going full-bore for the kind of conference experience that has made this event legendary -- where you can mingle with so many of the world's most notable experts among our speakers, and most successful and insightful investors among our audience.

From the feedback I've been getting from long-time attendees and exhibitors, everyone is dying to get back to in-person events generally, and back to New Orleans specifically.

So I think New Orleans 2021 is going to be a real blockbuster -- a veritable homecoming for gold bugs from around the world and an event that we'll be talking about for many years to come.

We're already well into our planning and have much of our speaker roster lined up. I don't want to spring all the surprises just yet, but rest assured that you're going to be amazed at our speakers and our agenda.

It's going to be like nothing you'll find anywhere else.

I'll be sharing the details with you very soon. In the meantime, there are some special considerations you need to be aware of.

First, because we're also in the midst of adding our year-round membership concept to our registration, in which everyone will enjoy virtual programs throughout the year and those who can't travel to New Orleans will be able to "attend" virtually at a reduced cost.
Because of this, we don't yet have on-line registration available. 

But you can add your name, with no obligation, to our "wait list" by visiting:

This will let us know you want to come, so we'll save a spot for you and send you a registration link as soon as it's available.

Second, it may turn out to be very important that you reserve your place. You see, the current social distancing requirements in New Orleans and in the Hilton Riverside (our host hotel) are limiting our attendance to a number that is a couple hundred short of our average attendance.

Now I fully expect this to change. In fact, I expect there to be no attendance limits by the time of the conference.

But I can't guarantee that, so we'll be able to accept reservations only up to whatever limits are in place at the time.

So I urge you to let us reserve your place now, again by visiting --

-- to put your name on our "wait list." (You'll also be treated to our special “welcome back to New Orleans video!)

In the meantime, we'll keep working on our registration system so we can unveil the extraordinary lineup for New Orleans 2021
