Perhaps the cartel would be interested in a zillion tons of nickel for a reasonable price.... Perhaps NAN would be interested in a buyout well north of the current 20M Cap.
It's not as though NAN will drill 2000M and then be producing next year. At this moment in time you're looking at a group of well respected scientists proving their theory that the 75 conductive targets found by the choppers can deliver economically feasible mining results.
If the early results point to a successful discovery process, then the speculation on just how big this camp is will begin. Cartels, Banks, and Businessmen alike will place their bets.
