Thanks for stopping by. As you could tell I was working hard but having fun. I think we will have a beverage sooner rather than later. Those lab rats are great guys and talented top down. IMO they are going to provide a lot of shareholder value in the days, weeks, months and years to come. Three AGM's in a row and I can't begin to tell you the value of that.

The short answer to Ft. McMurray, VIP Syncrude tour, Aggregate DD, and a small, very small property tour (when considering the amount of acres Birch has), would be that V.P Don Dabbs and his thirty (sorry Don)years of affiliations with the Oil Sands principals, executives, and governmental permitting agencies has built a reputation that almost stands alone. I saw first hand the friendship and respect accorded him by a very senior Syncrude executive.

We have aggregate, almost a monopoly of it, because of our location to the Oil Sands projects, and it is in extremely short supply that without it, it either shuts hundreds of millions of dollars in projects off, or the costs get exorbitant primarily because of haul costs. They need it to the tune of millions of tons a year, so say the projections. One way or another Birch will be in the aggregate business and the stockholders will benefit. Glen De Paoli armed with all his degrees and experience met with some aggregate people and for that we are in very capable hands. This IMO put a floor under this stock.

With respect to the precious metals issue and this still hasn't been proven, IMO Birch will demonstrate economics and extraction. JV's with the Oil Sands operators if the if's are demonstrated then they must, as any economic additions would reduce the very high costs of doing business.

No question about it, I had fun and business with quality people, gained a lot of knowledge, and saw how these puzzles are being put in place.

PS Those Calgarian Grannies are sure some riotious bit***s (g)

Suprised that no one is following this great growth company in the oil sands region of Alberta. 12 month target $12 U.S.

I bought a few shares today on the pullback. Don't see how they can lose because their product will be in demand for decades and they will have virtually no competition. I think a 12.00 target is very conservative. Keith

Hi Kieth

I agree! I was hoping that we would see this pull back as the market now begins to see the potential. The stock is now in play as volume begins to increase and investors begin to understand why this company is worthy.

I too am buying on this gift of a "pull back" and will buy more on any further weakness. Nice to know there are others who understand just how great an opportunity this is to get richer.

All the best!

BMD looking strong today. Have you done any DD on Game Host Income(GH-UN.V). They own the only casino in Ft. McMurray plus another casino in Calgary. Sounds like a good pick and shovel play on the oil sands...there's going to be a lot of money to spend on entertainment! They have a dividend of .12 per month which should offer some downside protection. Keith

I think GH.UN is an excellent investment! They have excellent properties with exceptional locations in Alberta. I am very impressed with the Deerfoot casino which they have a 40% interest. All of their locations should attract a growing appetite for this type of entertainment and convention orientated package.

very few shares outstanding means that it trades very thinly but the trend is a solid up, so a great hold with the likely hood of increasing distributions.

Good pick in my opinion!

This board is very quiet considering BMD is hitting new highs the last few days. Wonder if Jon Markman's article had that much clout or is the stock being discovered by the big money. Good sign that Cramer had not heard of BMD even if he did not recommend it. Keith

Quiet is good but the news is getting out and the reality is sinking in. This company is "sitting in the catbird seat"!

IF I might add a thought concerning this potential cash cow......

large scale developement of the oilsands will only become feasable when new pipelines are laid to transport the oil to the west coast where it can be shipped to NEW MARKETS.currently the oil goes south to the chicgo area where there are "heavey oil" refineries...these refineries are already working at full the moment any increase in production would have nowhere to go. apperently,as a result this oil is sold at a 20 dollar discount to light crude.
currently Enbridge(ENB) is trying to build one such pipeline......completion is progected around 2009

wheather or not it will be built will be decided in early 2006
Enbridge Files Preliminary Information Package for Gateway Project

NOV 2, 2005 - 07:30 ET

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 2, 2005) - Gateway Pipeline Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Enbridge Inc. (TSX:ENB) (NYSE:ENB), has filed a Preliminary Information Package (PIP) with the National Energy Board, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and other federal departments.

The PIP provides detailed information on the major elements of the Gateway Project as of October 2005. It is intended to inform potentially interested parties, and to permit federal regulators to define the regulatory review process to satisfy the requirements of the National Energy Board and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency.

A PIP filing does not constitute an application for regulatory approval. Such an application is planned for 2006, subject to the achievement of commercial feasibility, including satisfactory shipper commitments, as well as successful completion of engineering, environmental planning, and public and Aboriginal consultation. This timing would permit construction to commence in 2008 and the pipelines to begin service in 2010.

The Gateway Project is estimated to cost approximately $4 billion and will consist of a petroleum export pipeline and a condensate import pipeline along the same right-of-way, and a marine terminal.

The Gateway Petroleum Export Pipeline project will involve a new 1150-km (715-mile) 30-inch diameter pipeline with an initial capacity of approximately 400,000 barrels per day to transport petroleum from Edmonton to Kitimat. The Gateway Condensate Import Pipeline will be a 20-inch diameter pipeline capable of initially transporting approximately 150,000 barrels per day from Kitimat to Edmonton.

Enbridge Inc., a Canadian company, is a leader in energy transportation and distribution in North America and internationally. As a transporter of energy, Enbridge operates, in Canada and the U.S., the world's longest crude oil and liquids transportation system. The Company also has international operations and a growing involvement in the natural gas transmission and midstream businesses. As a distributor of energy, Enbridge owns and operates Canada's largest natural gas distribution company, and provides distribution services in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and New York State. Enbridge employs approximately 4,400 people, primarily in Canada, the U.S. and South America. Enbridge's common shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange in Canada and on the New York Stock Exchange in the U.S. under the symbol ENB. Information about Enbridge is available on the Company's web site at

- The Gateway Project, estimated to cost approximately $4 billion, involves the proposed development of two new pipelines, a new marine terminal, tankage, pumping stations and related facilities.

- The Gateway Project will run from Strathcona County near Edmonton to Kitimat, British Columbia.

- Key factors in the decision to select Kitimat as the end-site location for the pipeline were the deep-water port and abundant industrial land.

- The pipeline will be 1150 kilometres in length.

- The petroleum export pipeline will be 30-inches in diameter and designed to move an average of 400,000 barrels per day.

- The condensate import pipeline will be 20-inches in diameter and designed to move an average of 150,000 barrels per day.

- Condensate is a by-product of natural gas production and is used as feedstock to oil refineries but its primary use in Western Canada is to dilute heavy oil for easier transport by pipeline.

- Certified marine tankers will be used to either import condensate or export petroleum. The marine terminal will include tankage, emergency response equipment, tanker births and other related facilities.

- Enbridge anticipates filing the National Energy Board application for the Gateway Project in the second quarter of 2006, beginning construction in 2008 and having the pipeline operational in 2010.

- The socio-economic benefits during construction of the project are estimated at $1.52 billion in BC and $1.26 billion in Alberta.

- During the operation of the Gateway Project, the socio-economic benefits are estimated at $107 million per year in BC and $60 million per year in Alberta.

- The Gateway Project is an important part of Canada's energy future and will help ensure there is enough capacity to transport new oil expected from Canada's oil sands in the years to come.

and on the mineral exploitation possibilities of BMD .....(BMD owns extensive mineral rights for deposits under the oilsands)
Mineral Potential Summaries
Prairie-type Microdisseminated Gold Mineralization:
A New Deposit Type In Manitoba's Phanerozoic Rocks
A new deposit type In Manitoba's Phanerozoic Rocks Microdisseminated "Prairie-type" Au mineralization has been identified in Devonian carbonate rocks in west-central Manitoba (Mafeking-Swan River area) (NTS 63C/14). Tectonic reactivation of the Churchill-Superior Boundary Zone and dissolution of the Prairie Evaporite are viewed as critical for the structural preparation of host rocks and as a mechanism for oxygenated Cl-rich saline brine transport of metals to their present locations, respectively. Gold mineralization occurs as <5 micron-sized grains associated with bitumen in massive to concentrically laminated siliceous sinter within pipe-shaped solution chimneys interpreted to represent focused, paleo-brine discharge sites. In addition to gold, hematite, marcasite, jarosite, alloys of Au-Cu-Ag, Fe-Cr-Ni, Cr-Ni, Ni-Cu, Cu-Zn, Cu-Zn-Ni and native Ag, Ni, Zn, Sn, Pb and Bi have been identified. Associated minerals include barite, monazite, celestite, rutile, zircon and sylvite. Sideritic carbonate rims the solution chimneys and hosts microdisseminated chalcopyrite, marcasite, hawleyite/greenockite, Ni phosphate, Cd carbonate, hematite, Cu-Zn alloy and native Ag, Ni, Cu, Sb and Pb. Related minerals include barite, monazite, zircon, and calcium bromide. Nearby present-day saline brine pools are characterized by single and multiple vents or chimneys that are actively precipitating base and precious metal-enriched sulphide minerals.

These chimneys are viewed as possible modern day analogues of the solution chimneys exposed in the Mafeking quarry.

An independant mineralogical and geochemical study undertaken in the Department of Geological Sciences, University of Manitoba has confirmed the nature of the mineralization and describes textural and mineralogical components of the solution chimneys.
