Royal coal had suspended production,so there is no comparison with MTO at this time.You are right telling us that becoming profitable is no garantee,however it's right too for any company doing business in any sector of activitity.The main garantee in a streeming agreement  is an operational company,so, in that case,Nolan Watson did the riight thing to protect shareholders.

You are right  telling us that BL mine shut down in the past years and MTO's managers and engineering firms know it very well too;l these peoples are all idiot if they operate BL in the same way than Quebec Sturgeon did and don't approach this problem differently .

About how risky mining is,I have just to read all your posts and BT's posts
