Will 136 Million Tons of “Super Salt” provide “a monopoly on the entire supply of this new form of energy?”

Mark Skousen teases, "A newly discovered, one-of-a-kind mineral that holds the key to unlocking a virtually limitless supply of this 'forever fuel'… and one company owns exclusive rights to the entire world’s supply"

I love this story… it brings to mind the Indiana Jones-style teaser pitches about top-secret mineral riches in strange places that were so prevalent a decade ago in newsletterland… here’s a little taste:

“This Secret Research Complex…

“Hidden Away in a Small Town in Australia…

“Is About to Reveal a

“$66 Billion Breakthrough…”

Wow, so what is it? More…

“A newly discovered, one-of-a-kind mineral that holds the key to unlocking a virtually limitless supply of this ‘forever fuel…’

“And one company owns exclusive rights to the entire world’s supply… all 136 million tons of it.”

Well, we pretty much have to call “horse hockey” on that — one company owning exclusive rights to the entire world’s supply of a commodity? Nuh uh.

But still, inquiring minds want to know — what the heck is Dr. Mark Skousen talking about this time? Is it interesting, once we get past this first wave of lying hype? The newsletter they’re pitching is Skousen’s Forecasts and Strategies, which is his “entry level” newsletter (usually about $50 a year), so I suppose we could subscribe… but that’s not the point, right? The point is that we can figure out these stocks for ourselves… and if we don’t pay for the information, we’ve got a much better chance of considering it carefully and objectively before throwing real money at an idea.

So… let’s ID this “super salt” stock, shall we?

More from the ad:

“In a secluded region on the outskirts of Bundoora, Australia…

“An international team of highly skilled scientists has unlocked an incredible discovery…

“A virtually unlimited supply of energy…

“Locked up in a mineral that no one had even heard of 15 years ago.”

OK, so what is this mineral that no one’s heard of? Here are the hints they drop…

“This unique compound packs an incredible amount of valuable energy within its crystalline structure…

“And only one company controls complete and total access to every single molecule of this ‘super salt.’

“Since it was first discovered, the company has committed $100 million to creating a way to release the incredible amount of energy stored inside.”

And apparently there’s going to be huge demand for this “super salt”…

“Once word gets out about the incredible impact this “super salt” is going to have on the world…

“Investors are going to be stampeding into the company that controls the entire world’s supply.”

We get a few more clues about this specific mineral:

“It was first discovered in 2003 in a tiny town hidden away deep in the Balkans.

“It was unlike anything that had ever been discovered before.

“So, they called in an expert geologist from Cambridge – to examine this strange new ore.

“After extensive testing, the word came back:

“The company had discovered a new mineral that had never been seen before on earth.”

And apparently it has still not yet been discovered anywhere else…

“Unlike other minerals, this company’s “super salt” is found in just one spot. It’s the only place on the entire planet that contains this mineral.”

Really? A monopoly on a mineral? That soun
