The Wallace Street Journal
By David Bond, Editor
The Silver Valley Mining Journal
David Bond lives in Wallace, Idaho - heart of the planet's richest silver fields, the Coeur d'Alene Mining District - where he owns and edits the Silver Valley Mining Journal, an e-newsletter devoted to silver and silver investing. His weekly commentary on silver, "The Wallace Street Journal," may be read elsewhere on the Web at SilverSeek.com and lemetropolecafe.com.
David's interest in silver goes back a long way. He started young - collecting U.S. Silver Certificates in the mid-1960s as a teenager when Lyndon Johnson Administration's made the unilateral decision not to honor its promise to redeem those certificates with silver.
It was this decision that sparked David's ongoing passion for understanding financial matters, one that would also influence David's opinion of the "full faith and credit of the United States" for the ensuing four decades.
The Johnson decision - noted but not of note at the time - also initiated an illustrious career in journalism when David decided to combine his passion for understanding the world around him from an economic, political and business point of view with his interest in writing.
Today, in addition to writing his newsletter, David covers gold and silver mining equities for a number of national and international publishers, including Platts Metals Week, a division of McGraw-Hill. He holds regional and national firsts in investigative journalism from the Atlantic City Press Club (National Headliner), the Society of Professional Journalists (SDX/SPJ), the American Association of Sunday and Feature Editors, and the Idaho Press Club.
David has also edited or written for newspapers on both coasts, Canada and Alaska. He is former city editor of the Coeur d'Alene (Idaho) Press and was managing editor of the North Idaho Press and the Wallace Miner. His work has appeared in publications as disparate as the New York Times, Mineweb and Range Magazine.
