Doesn't particularily believe in junior companies trying to develop out their own exploration targets. 1 in 3,000 anomolies becomes a mine. Also the idea of someone spending a great deal of time looking for platinum in Canada doesn't seem like a great idea. If you want to play platinum, play the South Africans.

Owns a little personally and his play is on Robert Freidland, the greatest promoter in the mining business. Fully priced, but probably going higher. Interesting coal exploration play. Have an enormous copper/gold periphery. Have other assets that tend to get ignored. Very volatile sector.

(A Top Pick Mar 8/05. Up 2.5%.) Has done a spectacular job. Trailing earnings for last year were $0.16. Earned $0.04 for the quarter. Offers the best juxtaposition of risk/reward in the Canadian speculative sector. Don't chase the stock. $2.05/2.10 is OK. Expects to own this until the current management team sells it.

(A Top Pick Mar 8/05. Up 5%.) Buy at the $26 level. Probably the best play on developing in water shortages in Nevada/Arizona.

If you own, sell and take the tax loss and buy it back in either Aug or December. Should be fairly easy to trade. One of the greatest gold camps in the history of the world.

Drilling a well onshore Romania and participating in the promote round in the north Sea. Expect to see a lot of speculation in the next 2 weeks because of the Romanian well. Reducing his position because his base cost is so cheap. A wonderful wide open exploration play. Good range of prospects.

High regard for management. Beginning to spend too much money on their own projects. particularily in Turkey. Involved in probably the most attractive uranium exploration play on the continent, Labrador in a joint venture with Altius Minerals (ALS-X) and prefers this stock more.
