"BGM should do what it does best and focus on exploration and prove up resources for majors"
BGM has, in its various reincarnations, been around for almost 30 years. FC has been a director, etc. of BGM and its various reincarnations (and with four rollbacks) for over 20 years.
BGM has been "proving up" resources at Barkerville for over 20 years under its various reincarnations and BCSC "oopsies". BGM's latest "proving up" (the June 28, 2012, Geoex non-compliant NI 43-101) seems to have been greeted by disbelief by the Northern Minor, The Financial Post and which resulted in a seven-month-old CTO from the BCSC.
IMO, that "prove up" record might not be too attractive; however, segueing from the "might be attractive" to the "was attractive", can you give me the name of one mining company, minor or major, which made an offer to or a purchase from BGM for a property "proven up" by BGM in the last 20-odd years?
