I would tend to agree with you about WRN.  That LNG plan is crazy.  Open pits in the Yukon are high cost affairs, just ask CS, and Anvil for that matter. 

Regardless, among La Verde's many virtues as a mining project is the temperate climate throughout the year.  Those Chinese investors would be well advised to fly around La Verde and then go to a Pacific resort to enjoy themselves and decide over a few drinks on the beach.  I'm sure they can expense it!
