u should have sold for a tax loss...now I am afraid u r hooped imo....don't believe these people that say the mine will be sold...it sat there for 6 decades without any interest....contrary to what people say here..the coal is not high quality coking coal...it is a low grade and the transportation costs are too high to make it feasible to mine....Bates ran the perfect scam imo....sorry that u are losing money here but there are many people here that are in for a lot higher...people that did no dd and believed idiots like sand devil and that fool Shane....and put people like me that asked tough questions on ignore....now its time to pay the piper...JMHO GLTA
