Small mines & miners sell directly to those paying a fair price.

Their terms and conditions oft have no fee nor commission. The larger your purchase the more accommodating they seem to be.

Of course, brokers gravitate toward any mass of articles for sale. Greater the mass, greater the attraction. Elemental physics. Brokers are profit seekers. That is their trade.

Why do you suppose a "broker" has such an awful trade name?

Visit Manhattan, NY. Take a gander at the waterfront. As far as your eye can see, there are yachts. Banker yachts... Broker yachts...

Investor yachts? Oh? [Telegraph line drop.]
