Operations are in Brazil. One of the largest nickel sulphide deposits, which have been discovered in the past 10 years. Nickel sulphide deposits are rare, easy to operate and low cost (est. $350 per lb.). Low grade at about 6% of nickel but the open pit is going to be producing about 1 billion pounds of nickel over its lifetime.

Nevada is an extreme richly prospective area for gold. Bringing the old Hycroft mine back into production, possibly in Q4. Expecting to produce 100,000 ounces in 2009. A heap leaching process meaning low cost. It doesn't require crushing. Also have about 200,000 acres of very prospective gold properties. Incredible management.

Highly leveraged to copper, zinc and coal, which are important products for China. They have a very strong shareholding structure, which will prevent anybody from hijacking or buying the company. This is a long-term hold.

(A Top Pick Feb 15/07. Up 37%.) Hoping for an aggressive buyout sometime this year. Has been languishing for too long. In a trading range for about 2.5 years. This means that accumulation is taking place.

Copper/molybdenum play. Molybdenum currently is hot, mainly because certain hedge funds have been trying to corner the market. Highly speculative as hedge funds can move the market and currently are in trouble. If they have to bail out it could drop the price. This is a reasonable company to own.
