ardtole, it would be brilliant to see mining return to the pennines, but it will be a long haul before mine is started.
I hope for you that the drilling finds something encouraging so that more drilling takes place. I would think that you would be looking at say 5 years minimum before mining can commence.
With all due respect, I don't think work in the pennines is responsible for the recent surge in MIO. There's more to it.
As always, time will tell...
