Notes and abbreviations to accompany these Highlights are located
below Table 2.

The Cu-Pt-Pd-Au rich PM Deposit occurs within an extensive zone of Sudbury Breccia situated in the footwall of the McCreedy West Mine. The deposit is approximately 1500 ft. long and 1000 ft. wide and varies from several ft. to over 150 ft. in true thickness.

The PM Deposit contains two distinctive types of platinum-palladium-gold mineralization: high-sulphide (copper-rich) and low-sulphide (copper-poor). The high-sulphide type occurs within a stockwork of veins, disseminations and massive chalcopyrite containing Cu-Ni-Pt-Pd-Au. Areas where this type of mineralization is the thickest, (true widths of 50 to 150 ft.) may prove to be amenable to bulk mining. Within the mineralized stockwork, individual or clusters of massive chalcopyrite veins, up to 50 ft. in width, contain very high-grade Cu-Ni-Pt-Pd-Au values and may be amenable to selective mining methods. The low-sulphide type, because of the lack of visible sulphides and low copper and nickel (Ni) values, is referred to as the "no-see-um" type. Many of the holes reported here contain no-see-um type mineralization. All three holes in the most southeasterly drill fence in the PM Deposit intersected high-grade, no-see-um type Pt-Pd-Au mineralization (FNX 3022 - 15.2 g/T Pt+Pd+Au over 64.1 ft., FNX0139 - 23.9 g/T Pt+Pd+Au over 6.0 ft., FNX0140 - 10.8 g/T Pt+Pd+Au over 10.8 ft.). This mineralization may represent a new type of platinum/palladium/gold ore in the Sudbury Basin.

I never got filled on that order the other day.
And I saw it trading down under $4 this morning.
I should have pulled the trigger
But I had my hands full with some POS stocks trying to kick my ass.

Anyone here buying that dip?

Still holding here?

I done screwed up.
Sold my position for a measly 5% gain on Monday.
Was out at 4.25. Saw it at 4.2 yesterday, almost got back in.
Now I'm finding myself wanting to chase it up here in the 4.5 area.
But I'm gonna wait.
Probably take some 4.3s if I get the chance
But will have to set an ultra tight stop then.

Kudos to those still holding.

Well, I'm not very good at interpreting PnF charts
But I know how to read<GGG>
Question is though
Is this a valid break out
and does it need to come back and test support?
I never got my position back yet.
Always tomorrow I suppose
But I think unless the HUI gets some fire under it
It may start to weaken some

we're riding hopes that the merger is more likely -- it gets approved and SWC will make 6 bucks -- course the price of Pd and Pt helps, too

Well, now let's watch it fall now.
You might want to take some profits
Because I ponied up and re-entered
35 cents higher than where I sold the last time.
Sheesh!
