Hopefully, we are getting close to the end of the nighmare for junior mining stocks. We are getting some signals that things might be turning around. PWC issued a report in November on the perspectives for juniors titled: Junior Mines 2012 - MUST SURVIVE BEFORE YOU CAN THRIVE (you can't make stuff like this up...!)

Increased M&A activity is a positive sign, so the RVD news is good news for everybody. If they get a good deal, it will be a bullish signal to the market. Obviously, at the current market valuations, buyers are going for steals, so we need to wait and see what comes out of it. I wish all the best to the RVD shareholders.
