I personally found it an inappropriate news release. A good metaphor is listening to a child whine about not having enough money to purchase their toy. This is not a good economy, and money for all is low. Do your jobs and drill. If you are more successful, lots of money will come. Drilling is soon (found that info at the end of the article), and my fingers are crossed. I think they are close, as their last samples had minerals in them.
Disclaimer: This is not a post by a basher, just an investor who was surprised to read a news release that sounded like a newpaper article.
