Rdgeo, I am willing to bet you a lunch at a good restaurant in Calgary that your frustration will disappear after De Beers and MPV have their mining permits in place later this year.  The 2 companies have very rich kimberlite pipes at Kennady Lake, possibly the 2nd richest in Canada (after Diavik).  And certainly the current richest after the depletion of Diavik and Ekati.  Look what Diavik has done for Aber.  Aber has gone from a small diamond exploration company to a major Canadian diamond producer in 10 years.  There is no reason why this scenario could not happen to Mountain Province.  Things are going to get a lot better for Mountain Province!  Maybe in 10 years Mountain Province will have a new name of Canadian International Diamond Corporation!
