There is only one topic being discussed amongst the mining crowd today: gold. And fair enough, since the yellow metal has shot up to start the New Year, busting through resistance levels and bringing miners along for the ride.
Highlighting his opposition to nuclear power ahead of the Empire State's primary later this month, Bernie Sanders is calling for the shutdown of a nuclear power plant outside New York City that has leaked radioactive material into groundwater supplies.
