Hi HighPh,

IMO, the way I see it unfolding is the Mining License received, will motivate our JV partners all to sign off the Agreements, which in turn will spike the stock price.

If one of the potential JV partners doesn't step up to pay the next phase of drilling costs, I believe EV's will have a good enough credit rating, with a 30yr mining license tenure, a 3 yr drilling license in hand and a known boron tonnage and value of what's been drilled. This should be good enough to obtain a bank loan for the next phase of drilling operation costs - enough of the PP's, we've carried the torch long enough.
