You don't think everyone here has read the 43-101 report? Your calling me out huh?? Well, let's get atter...first I'll state, once again, the obvious, because the technicals are self-explanatory. If you had any concept of rock-mechanics ( which for your intelligence level must seem contradictory applying it to the Boleo project as far as the strata is concerned, but I will attempt to help you nonetheless by including a link of which I am assuming that you are literate,,,please forgive me if you are not in advance)

Shallow soft-rock mining does present challenges, as stated in the report. It, however, is not impossible. Feasibility does becomes the defining factor. Thank goodness the Boleo ore-body has high value ie. copper, etc. I was employed in soft-rock mining for close to 30 years now. In southern Ontario there are several soft-rock underground operations. Whether or not it matters, is a Gysum Mine in Caledonia depth of approx 300' . Case in point, not impossible. Windsor, Ontario, Canadian Salt Company...albeit at a depth of 1000' considered shallow but not feasible as an open pit obviously. Many more examples, but you will have enough to digest while you study the rock-mechanics article included...please note that pages 252 on, specifically refer to the mines I used as examples and more. Also note that Google Books contains the information readily available to all. It is referencing salt minig rock-mechanics but the principles apply, also the mines I quoted above are given to you there so you cannot question my integrity.

Technicals also indicate 25 year mine life, which I am sure you already noted. Somethings may not be specifically explained to shareholders Moemoron, but besides the rock-mechanics I've mentioned among other things this one time I am also ( but not solely) listening to my gut on this one for what it's worth. I apologize in advance if I come across as terse.

Moe...follow the money...ever heard that one?? Specifically KC...
