Gill, agreed, there is a market feel of exhaustion at the bottom, the despondent have left, floats have all been tightened up, I listen to what Rick Rule, Eric Sprott have had to say to punters over the years. In part they blow their own horns and fluff their own books, but there is also a bit of sincere feeling that they want others to have have some of the success they did. They both beat the drum repeatedly - the money is made when the market is dull, the sector is spurned by Main Street and big retail. Accumulate quality projects as supply of the target metals tighten. I canít see how, provided we can weather delays in the global economy regaining greater stability, you can lose buying gold, copper, silver, nickel, lead, zinc over the long run from here. Provided you are picking properties with a clear pathway to development and sound management.
