Their plans for an Alaskan mine development saw some life in November when the new Governor there showed he was more pro-development. Unfortunately the cost to develop in this region is so great and one of the partners dropped out last year. How do you finance it, especially when environmentalists are against it?

A BC station 2 gas producer -- right at the further point from markets. He is focusing on condensate rich producers instead that see prices linked more to oil prices. AECO prices yesterday were $1.13 /GJ.

The only one he likes in this sector is Secure Energy Services. Companies are trying to figure out their activity levels and this will determine how equipment will move between Canada and the US. This is one he would not be buying right now.

Hudbay vs Teck. These are two different companies. Teck being more focused on coal, copper and zinc. Hudbay is more copper and zinc. He would prefer Teck. As these do not provide any yield, he does not stay on top of these ones. He would stay on the sidelines for these given the trade issues globally. The next Presidential election will likely help define the future -- it will be uncertain until then. China will continue to be a big consumer and supply is being curtailed at these low commodity prices. The inventory situation will be improving over time, but it is still too early.

They have had everything go wrong that could. Losing the social license in Guatemala for their silver mine and other issues. Pan American has come in being very opportunistic to give a relatively low-ball bid. There may be some value opportunities going forward, but he would prefer to not have to wait to see that develop. He sees better opportunities.
