The way I see it is like this. You can tell investors the same thing so many times, that eventually if all goes well, you'll get it right.
So, gold pour this week, yadda, yadda, yadda. Sometimes when the answer isn't certain, it should just be answered with, no answer is the way I see it. I'm not blaming IR, but it's been my experienc that it's always better not to answer when uncertain.
This was from an email last month. Let's hope this time, it's actually happening. It would be about time, IMO.

The Company will make a public announcement as soon as the first gold pour is complete. We are still targeting this month for the first pour.
