It's great to see Toureg back on the board. We are fortunate to have posters like him, Lucky5 and DesertMule - their opinions can vary greatly, but their perspectives are appreciated. It's over-the-top rantings like Rav59's that hurt this board and, hopefully, people just hit the ignore button on those.
Just a comment on Brent Cook. While we've taken a few shots at some of the "guru's" in this business, IMO, Cook remains as the most credible voice in the junior mining sector. His article that Toureg posted is about a good a summary of what's taking shape in this sector as any I've read. His call of an upcoming mass exctinction of junior miners who own speculative or low-grade plays, while regrettable, is likely dead on.
