I looked at the latest interim financial statements and got $227653 for compensation to all management and directors for the first nine months of the year.  Annualized that would equate to about $300,000.  I have to admit, this is pretty good payout, although split across quite a few people some of whom worked around the clock at some times of the year.   I think it is an issue across the board on the venture exchange that people tend to get paid pretty well to undertake activities that rarely lead to productive mines.  I would certainly welcome any proposals from management on how they can cut down on salaries and overhead in the lean times that we are in.  I told Greg in Vancouver that if he moved the company into his basement and scaled things down I would be all for it.
