Here is another great Top 10

----------------------------------

Hi All

This past week I attended the annual “Round Up” conference for the exploration side of the mining industry and what a conference it was. The mood and tone in the industry is exceptional right now and we should see significant growth in mining over the next couple of years. With this week being the conference I thought I would focus this week’s Top 10 on some interesting stats on mining in B.C..

British Columbia is set to welcome the Year of the Rabbit, which kicks off Thursday, along with a variety of Lunar New Year events reflecting the Asia-Pacific influence that has helped build this province over the past 150 years. We encourage everyone to celebrate the instrumental role the Chinese community has played in building and bettering our province, and to enjoy Lunar New Year over the next 15 days. In our region Exploration Place is hosting a Chinese New Year’s Dinner on Feb 5, it’s always...

In the past week I have had a number of people ask me about where I think home prices are going. I have qualified my answer by saying home 'costs' will go up from here on out. I can't say for sure whether it will be the actual prices of homes going up or the cost to purchase a home (ie: new mortgage rules and interest rates) but rest a sure it will be one or the other or both. The next few months will be the best time to buy if your in the market due to home prices here in Prince George being very reasonable as well as the financing costs.
If you or someone you know is thinking about real estate this coming year I would happy to talk real estate and do my best to answer your questions or concerns.


Cheers to a fantastic year in 2011.

This week’s Top 10 is actually a “Top 12” and a summary of some of the highlights of 2010. It’s always easy to forget a year and a short year in review is always worthwhile.

Have a great week!
