The BFS is a precondition to the financing. There may be some smaller miners like Capstone or Taseko that would be interested in this project if it is economical. It is tightly held, so the price would have to be right for the insiders. I think the low volume is as a result of needing a current resource estimate and not know what the econmics are. Junior miners have been pretty beat up lately. Investors are saying show me the money before they invest.
Investment companies need to show their clients why they should put their money in a stock.
