Now that is the right idea going forward.
Some of us long timers here do not want to see a rollback of shares for very good reasons.
A share buyback like you said (even a small amount annually) would give strength to the sp and send a positive message like it did over at the EXN board. (sorry no spamming here just stating facts)
I truly do hope this scenerio does play out in the near future especially given the huge dilution that had to be done to acquire Shafter.
Looking forward to some more good news like: tpd increase at Shafter
tpd increase at La Negra
drilling results at both mines
43-101 at Shafter
The NW trend at La Negra
Year end results
possible TSX listing
a possible share buyback
the gold contamination at Shafter
All this and AUN producing 10 million ounces ag/eq by end of 2013 and trading at .94 cents.
WHAT GIVES ?
