THE LAST DROP: In the gold mining business, it may take you five years just to get a mine built, but then it will last for

another 20 or 30 years. We’re making very long-term decisions, but we’re being judged by our investors on an increasingly

short-term basis. It used to be challenging because of the focus on quarter-by-quarter performance. Today it seems investors

want to know what’s going on a month-to-month and week-to-week basis.
