Seems like quite a few years ago you were bashing on the West Timmins board?  Well, that turned out just fine and many made tens of thousands of $$$.  Excellon is doing all right and, in my opinion, will be a great success in spite of the past problems.  If it was the ".. punky unstable mess" as you so describe, they wouldn't be in production.

As Always, Best of Luck.
