Talked with Fraser at IR today.He states he was told that the Mill is scheduled to open Dec.6th , tomorrow.Bars to be poured soon after.

When questioned how soon a PP might be coming he said "bills are being paid , with money left over".No plans for an upcoming financing.I am assuming the poured bars will keep a future financing in check for now.

Snowden is still there , working on the 43-101.When questioned how soon it might be out he stated they "hoped " it will be completed this month.Said he didn't think it will take long for BCSC to approve once in.

I too hold a lot of shares here , and am keeping my concerns in check.I personally don't have a problem with Frank's loan to the company.I think it was done for expediency ,and to cut out all the red tape of an outside PP.He does after all own about 10% of the company & has 20 years invested.

People have to realize that things move slowly -     43-101s, starting up a mine , etc.Patience is a virtue that a lot of posters here don't have.Posters I looked forward to reading their posts 3- 4 months ago , are hardly worth reading nowadays.If you have a concern  - state it and let it drop.
