Bottom Line: I was a tad early on these shares at $1.40 US. Added to position on recent weakness at $1.08, have a 2% position. Well-funded company with a history of success behind it, I am comfortable holding it while waiting for further development and strength in the gold price; hoping for a 3x-4x from here.
