    For the massive oil play to develop this new arrangement had to be negotiated. Argentina absolutely needs the technology, money and know how being brought to the table by Chevron Corp.

     

    Now the shares will likely grow in value much quicker. However every time I see these announcements there seems to be a pull back from recent prices. It's similar to a runner taking a deep breath before taking off. While there is no way to know what will actually happen, if your in a margin account it would be worth your consideration to keep in mind that a pull back is possible.

    McEwen Mining And TNR Gold: Repsol shares soar on Argentina compensation news MUX, TNR.v, LCC.v

     

    We have more positive news coming from Argentina. Business climate is changing to the more positive investment outlook after the recent elections in the country. It should be translated in higher valuations of Los Azules Copper project for McEwen Mining and TNR Gold now.
