If you hold a stock like aaa for a year or 2 it is really hard to make money. The market is fixed. HFT And organized shorting means that gradual appreciation in a stock like aaa will not happen.

it means that we will have to wait to see this cross the finish line before getting rewarded.

it really doesn't matter how great the resource or mine plan is as far as the market is concerned. 

Aaa has the lowest opex by a mile. Has money in the bank and plenty of options re financing.
