Yes I have been aware that there is local opposition- something which NCU does not have. I only own a few shares of Augusta- and had noted the local concerns in the past. Also happen to have a pieces of the alaskan play and am aware of the concerns up there.
I would comment that I would rather be in Arizona or Alaska than in DRC or venezula or Bolivia ( not planning on going back there after bad altitude sickness!)
Great buying opportunities- they dont come along all that often.
Yes i prefer NCU over Augusta!
But in 2 yrs HBM will be over 15!
