Gold and silver have gone up a lot already, and in my opinion, will go ever so much higher. As a matter of fact, this may be but the beginning of a run up in both metals, with the top unknown, as of this period. Why is it unknown?

The stock of Sterling Mining (SRLM--pink sheets) has been a big winner in 2003, moving up from a base of about 50 cents a share in the summer, to hitting a high of $10 share by November. That's up by a factor of 20! A twenty-bagger! In about 6 months!
