I wouldn't bet the farm on EOM being taken out anytime soon. They made themselves the target of locals and environmentalists (just search them on the columbian google site in spanish) and the government is going to continue making things difficult for them to appease those opposed - its all politics.
GWY almost got hitched with EOM in the summer and after we moved on they aquired CVZ. EOM obviously needs to add more gravity to their business case and thats why they did this (if their 10+mil oz are so great why did they need CVZs few oz). JMHO but I don't think Eike is going touch EOM anytime soon - it would redirect the hatred for EOM to his California project and change the local politics. EOM has to sort out their issues first, which may take some time.
