This is of course a developing story.
"Let me tell you the story of Right Hand, Left Hand. It's a tale of good and evil. Hate: it was with this hand that Cane iced his brother. Love: these five fingers, they go straight to the soul of man. The right hand: the hand of love. The story of life is this: static. One hand is always fighting the other hand, and the left hand is kicking much ass. I mean, it looks like the right hand, Love, is finished. But hold on, stop the presses, the right hand is coming back. Yeah, he got the left hand on the ropes, now, that's right. Ooh, it's a devastating right and Hate is hurt, he's down. Left-Hand Hate KOed by Love."
The most drop dead heart-smashing love song ever.
Let us be clear, lovers of the tongue of Cervantes, the guy who can write lines like these...
...is simply a genius.
...there will be no posting on this blog today.
For secret reasons.
This is one reason:
This is the other, from October 2016.
“Chris Taylor’s Dunnedin Ventures Inc. (DVI), down one-half cent to 4.5 cents on 220,000 shares, is facing a dissident shareholder and a threatened proxy fight. The company’s former special adviser, Allan Barry Laboucan, says he was “pushed out of Dunnedin” but plans a return. Mr. Laboucan is best known as an “editor, writer and show host” with Allan Barry Reports, his on-line tout site. A year ago Mr. Taylor, Dunnedin’s president and chief executive officer, appointed him as a special adviser. Appointments are usually gushy affairs, and Mr. Taylor lauded his new adviser as “one of the most well-rounded diamond industry experts in Canada.” He did not back up the claim, limiting his description of Mr. Laboucan’s experience to his frequent guest appearances on business television programs seeking his opinions on resource companies and market trends, his role as “chief market commentator” with Agoracom.com, as well as his work with Allan Barry Reports.
Mr. Laboucan is certainly not returning the puffery. He now says in an Allan Barry Reports blog entry that Mr. Taylor “had little experience in diamonds” when Dunnedin began working its Kahuna diamond project in Nunavut last year, adding that “he is unfit to lead the company any longer.” Mr. Laboucan says he made his “concerns about the board and the leadership” of Dunnedin known to the company’s board of directors, after which they “chose effectively to dismiss me.” That hardly seems a surprise, since Mr. Laboucan says he wants to change the board of directors, appoint himself president and CEO, and bring in a new team experienced in diamonds and with skills complementary to his own. He then delivers a final insult to Mr. Taylor’s crew, saying he feels Dunnedin’s efforts were “more about the board of directors trying to build a stock promotion than a diamond mining company,” adding that he believes the “science of what we have discovered shows we have a world-class diamond project.”
Presumably he means the science of what Shear Diamonds Ltd. discovered in the mid-2000s as that now defunct company was responsible for the discovery of the narrow but rich Kahuna, Notch and PST kimberlite dikes. Shear never completed a resource estimate based on its work but Dunnedin did, declaring a 3.1-million-tonne inferred resource at Kahuna, averaging 1.04 carats per tonne, with another 921,000 tonnes inferred at Notch, averaging 0.90 carat per tonne. (PST, the smallest and richest of the tree dikes at 2.18 carats per tonne, does not have a resource estimate as yet.) Ultimately, whoever holds control of Dunnedin next year will have to raise several million dollars to advance Kahuna in a meaningful way since a lot of drilling and bulk sampling will be needed to prove or kill the project.”
One day some company will pay a research company for a report and they'll put a "hold" or "sell" reco on the company. Not.
This hit the wires at 07:55m today:
And now, this:
Yamana Gold (AUY) (YRI.to) hasn't been telling the truth about its massive legal problems in Argentina
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 3, 2015) - YAMANA GOLD INC. (TSX:YRI)(NYSE:AUY) ("Yamana" or "the Company") today announced that the Commercial Court of Argentina has annulled the previously announced award granted to Ricardo Auriemma ("Auriemma") in the litigation between Auriemma and 0805346 B.C. Ltd., a subsidiary of the Company which was formally known as Northern Orion Resources Inc. The effect of the annulment is that the previously announced award is cancelled and has no further effect.
The annulment vindicates the Company's consistently maintained view that the award has no valid basis and is without merit.
