"Stans share price is where it is because of (a) uncertainty over licensing in Kyrgyzstan, and (b) extreme rare earth industry and general mining/Venture exchange weakness.  Has NOTHING TO DO with news releases or the lack of it."  I would agree that a) and b) are true, but I don't think that the lack of IR is immaterial.  If you have a good story to tell, you should be telling it if you want to attract new investors.  You need new investors if you care about the stock price.  You need a good share price to get some types of additional financing.  A strong share price is helpful to not dilute existing shareholders' equity stake with new financing.  Could management have prevented most of he SP decline?  ... probably not, but they didn't try very hard.  About the only industry conference they took very seriously in the last year was the one in Russia.  Like somebody once said, how hard would it have been to have posted some pictures of ongoing work at the site?  When they went to that conference in Russia, didn't anybody take notes?  ... nothing said that would interest us shareholders?  How many interviews did management give in the last year?  Management has also been less than candid about their difficulties with the Kryg government... not telling of the problems until after the issue blows up (e.g., we heard little or nothing before the gov't suspended our license).  It is now pretty much accepted that the last trip over there was to defend our license... but before goiing over there, company statements were a hard line that there was no danger... even though the current status is that our license requires an annual renewal and we haven't received it (yet).  How many other companies have used shareholder money to write a PFS and not released it or explained why it was unacceptable to do so.  I think they could do better...
