    lower production has been almost the same as lower exports to US - I think it's a domestic demand issue more than lower exports, though I think that will become a bigger issue every quarter.

    I'm sorry I don't understand - I don't mention any pink sheet companies - I do see two symbols there at the end of the article which I did not insert and have never heard of...maybe the Seeking Apha guys put them there...??? I don't look at a stock that has more than 3 letters in its symbol.
