Hard hats, lights and canaries - what do they have in common? Mine shafts. Hard hats and lights still bound but canaries are a rare sight at mine sites these days. Automated, computer driven machinery is replacing the brawny, blackened faces of the two legged variety of miners. Rock too hard for a pick & shovel gives easily to huge drills, excavators and Euclids.

Gravel mountain roads give way to stretches of barren ice surrounded by unending tundra broken up by thousands of bodies of water. Many of these lakes cover kimberlite pipes with the potential for different kind of high grade ice - Diamonds! Ice roads are the only way in for delivery of the supplies required by the many mining camps. Problem is - they only exist for about 3 months out of the year. Fuel trucks etc run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to build the massive inventory of supplies of fuel, food, equipment parts etc. A significant amount of the world's diamonds are now provided by the frozen wasteland that is Canada's Arctic.

Vangold Resources (TSX-V: VAN) up $0.015 (4.11%) to $0.38, on volumes of 5,356,100, just $0.04 higher than the 52 week low of $0.32. The company has just completed diamond drill program testing of new targets at the Feni Project in New Guinea; the preliminary reports conclude no significant results. At the Dome Project showed assay results less than 0.1g/t AU and low copper values do not justify any further work. There will be no further testing at the Dan Magal location as the assay results there are quite low as well. Vangold's President & CEO, Dal Brynelsen stated "Although these results are disappointing it is important to note that this program only tested two new areas so the information obtained from this program only relates to these areas. There are many other areas to be tested on Feni. Therefore, we plan to have an independent geologist review the results from all programs and make recommendations on a further drill program. Certainly the potential for the Feni Islands has not been extinguished by the 2007 program."

Snowfield Development CP (TSX-V: SNO) down $0.055 (12.64%) to $0.38, on volumes of 2,140,270, just $0.14 shy of the $ 0.17 52 week low. Snowfield commenced operations for the 2008 Exploration Drill Program earlier this month southeast of Yellowknife at the Ticho Diamond Project. Three crews will be drilling on a 24 hour basis, identifying new kimberlite deposits Northeast of Mud Lake and will include Swamp Lake, Aspen Lake and Slipper Lake areas. The project area encompasses over 40,000 acres of land accessible only by the ice road established with the contractor. Once the ice is thick enough and able to support large trucks, the balance of the initial 500 tonne bulk sample (taken in Dec 2007) will be removed to the DeBeers Dense Media Separation Plant in Grande Prairie, Alberta.

New Nadina Explorations (TSX-V: NNA) up $0.05 (23.81%) to $0.26, on volumes of 989,300, slightly more than double the 52 week low of $0.11. Diamonds are still showing up at the RIP site, one of five kimberlites the company calls 'the string of blue pearls'. The Monument property, which includes the RIP site, contains 8 known kimberlite pipes - five of which have shown significant diamond populations. Data from detailed ground magnetic tests show untested magnetic anomalies, suggesting new kimberlite pipes yet to be found. Anomolous till samples support this theory. The largest diamond found to date, 0.445 carats, came from the RIP. Drilling will commence when weather improves and the days are longer - probably March of this year. The Monument property also contains the potential for another String of Blue Pearls.

After witnessing the recent plunge in the markets influenced by the resource sector, the falling housing slump and employment issues, smart investors and hedge funds are shifting interests into other sectors.

The markets are changing and investors are scared. The Bull Run that we have been use to over the past four years is starting to become more like a stampede in the other direction.

Stock markets are normally volatile, but investors have enjoyed a four-year run of below normal volatility and steady upward movement. Ups and downs, yes. But the Bull Run has been great over the past three to four years and has not ended as abruptly as many have predicted.

But while the end of the Bull Run has been predicted for more than a year, long-term investors shouldn't be worried. Of course, only if you know what you are doing.

First off, don't throw all your eggs into one basket.

Secondly, and most importantly, pick winners that last.

And pick winners that have little effect against the daily ups and downs of the economy. Visit to sign up free to receive your Special Report #1 and #2 for information on how to combat the markets or visit for your free subscription and BONUS reports.

We've seen oil markets spike, we've seen oil markets fall. We've seen wars, we've seen terrorist attacks. Chances are that the events that occur have a short term impact when you consider the overall factors of a 5-year forecast. We need to learn to take advantage of these economic factors. Think of homeland security.

Most investors -- and unfortunately far too many brokers -- go on a buying spree the minute a rally starts in a particular sector. Correspondingly, they panic at the first sign of a downturn and tend to sell off some great stocks -- right before the dead cat bounces.

But Maybach isn't about day-trading and making money fast. It's about being patient and learning the secret of how to get rich slowly. Visit to receive two Special Reports -- free when you sign up! Or visit for your free subscription and BONUS reports.

It's also about adding stocks to your portfolio that have little or no effect against the state of the economy.

The world as we know it has changed. Gone are the days of tradition and old school values. The entertainment industry is booming with the new technology in flat panel tv's.

Another sector we need to be focusing on right now is homeland security - for obvious reasons of course. Visit under our focus section to receive yet another free report on this sector.
