Historically, the gold-silver ratio has been about 47:1 for most of the past century, but it has averaged around 60:1 over the past 20 years. In the last decade, this trend has widened, and it is not uncommon to see the ratio exceed 80:1. Most monetary metal analysts recognize that, due to the store of value nature of both gold and silver, when the ratio expands above 80:1, investors tend to sell their gold holdings to buy silver, and vice versa when the ratio falls below the 60:1 level.

For the NatGold tokenization model, the International NatGold Council has adopted a conservative approach by setting the gold-silver ratio at 90:1. This setting means that one ounce of certified gold resources is equivalent to 90 ounces of certified silver resources, regardless of the classification—whether inferred, indicated, or measured.

For example, if 90,000 ounces of NI 43-101 certified silver resources are present in the indicated resource category, the 90:1 gold-silver ratio set by the International NatGold Council would yield a 1,000-ounce certified gold equivalent in the indicated category. This enables the title owner to tokenize the 1,000 ounces of gold equivalent indicated resources according to the established exchange ratios used by OroEx Corp. when digitally mining the resources into NatGold coins.

FAQs

What is the NatGold ecosystem?2024-04-21T19:08:58+00:00

The NatGold ecosystem is a comprehensive hybrid ledger/blockchain-based platform designed to facilitate the tokenization of qualifying mining titles containing certified gold resources into NatGold coins, ready for storage, distribution, and global trading within a DeFi framework. Operating in a fully auditable, transparent, and strategically managed manner, the ecosystem encompasses key components such as the NatGold Trust, NatGold Digital Vault, NatGold Bilateral Bridge, NatGold Multichain, and NatGold Media DApp. Together, these elements ensure a secure, transparent, and regulatory compliant environment, exemplifying a robust NatGold framework.

What is NatGold Legislation?2024-05-03T15:22:03+00:00

NatGold legislation, often referred to as natural gold or green gold legislation, is designed to amend and expand current mining laws to provide a sustainable alternative to the traditional, production-centric mining model. It enables entities within the conventional mining legal framework to convert their exploration or exploitation titles into NatGold titles. Once a title is transitioned into a NatGold mining title, it obtains a form of perpetual protection, making it exempt from production permits. Instead, these titles become eligible for tokenization, allowing them to be exchanged for NatGold coins. This innovative approach aims to preserve natural resources while still leveraging their economic value, aligning with modern environmental and sustainability goals.

What is the primary mission of the International NatGold Council?2024-04-20T23:27:01+00:00

The International NatGold Council’s primary mission is to develop legislative policies and set integrity standards for the NatGold industry, focusing on the comprehensive tokenization and monetization ecosystem. This mission is vital for cultivating a robust NatGold industry characterized by the utmost monetary integrity for NatGold coins.

In addition to its policy-making activities, the Council is committed to globally promoting the NatGold marketplace. Through strategic marketing and targeted media campaigns, it seeks to inform the worldwide community about the exceptional advantages of NatGold, establishing it as the leading asset-backed digital currency.

What is the Committee for Mineral Reserves International Reporting Standards (CRIRSCO) and what role does it play in standardizing global mining reporting practices. 2024-04-20T23:31:27+00:00

The Committee for Mineral Reserves International Reporting Standards (CRIRSCO) is a pivotal non-profit organization dedicated to harmonizing global mining reporting practices. It comprises representatives from National Reporting Organizations (NROs) from various countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, and South Africa. CRIRSCO provides the International Reporting Template (IRT), a framework that aligns national and regional standards into a globally recognized guideline, ensuring consistency and comparability in the reporting of mineral estimates, resources, and reserves worldwide.

Although CRIRSCO doesn’t have a central physical headquarters, it operates through its member organizations spread across these countries. This template aids in maintaining transparency and reliability in public reporting, which is crucial for investor trust and regulatory effectiveness in the mining sector. CRIRSCO’s international collaborations and its endorsement by global entities underline its significant role in shaping mining standards globally.

Why do U.S. Patented Land Claims align with NatGold legislative policy, enabling them to qualify for NatGold tokenization?2024-04-21T13:15:45+00:00

U.S. Patented Land Claims align well with NatGold legislative policy primarily because they provide comprehensive ownership rights that include both surface and subsurface mineral rights. This dual ownership structure allows holders to fully control their property without the complications of ongoing fees or royalties that are common with traditional mining titles. Moreover, the associated costs, primarily property taxes, can be significantly reduced or even eliminated by severing the subsurface rights from the surface rights, thereby assigning the tax liability solely to the surface rights holder.

Additionally, these claims are perpetual and fully transferable, which are crucial attributes for the NatGold industry. The perpetual nature of these claims ensures that there are no expiry dates on the rights to the resources, aligning with NatGold’s requirement for a stable and lasting resource base. The ability to freely transfer these claims supports the continuity and integrity of title transfers, a fundamental requirement for tokenizing these assets within the NatGold ecosystem. Together, these features provide a stable foundation for the NatGold industry, facilitating the seamless integration of real-world gold resources into the digital economy.
