I don't know but it looks to me like the opposite is the case.  Mongolia is a mess and looks to be for the forseeable future.  Plus Entree won't see any cash flow from it till 2015 minimum.  Much better off establishing a JV there and using the proceeds to develop Ann Mason, preferably with a major like Freeport.  Can't underestimate the advantages of a secure jurisdiction.  The only problem with that is it might not be straightforward to set up a JV in Mongolia with all the approvals they would need from the GOM.  Bottom line, spinning off the safer bet is the last thing they should do, particularly since there is easy-to-mine copper oxide deposts at Blue Hill which would be relatively easy to start getting cash flow from.
