When looking at the last three years I'm not sure you can attribute the housing boom to the entire three years - there must be other factors.

If this guy's right we should be looking again at resources,--
what do you think? I would have thought that Gold had almost had it's run, but apparently not so,


I like resources anyway - I like holes in the ground !! I'm amazed at the continual listing of new mineral discoveries that occur almost on a weekly basis. I'm sure that this is contributing enormously to the Oz economy. Gold seems to be a hedge (although I'm not a gold follower) against many other equities - if even half of this article is true then gold would appear to be a commodity that will be much in demand.
As far as other mining resources are concerned I have a pretty basic attitude which says that even if the coal, zinc, iron etc can't be sold or it's not profitable to dig it out, it doesn't disappear - it remains in the ground waiting for a resurgence in price.
Incidentally, have you noticed my favourite coal miner - AUO up to 64c and heading higher ??
Cheers
Harmy
