A new zoo, or getting Channel 4 to relocate to Cornwall ? Investors buy if the investment looks like it will give good returns.

Interesting that the first £25 million will be used to determine if it's even feasible to commence production. The Strongbow chief exec says the prospect offers 'great potential at a relatively low risk'. Relative to what....putting all your money in a big pile and setting fire to it ! IP: 86.131.30.0

There was a short piece on Radio 4 this morning and the speaker was briefly explaining it would take 18 months to de-water the 8 million(?) cubic metres of water and process it through an, as yet, un-built treatment plant. Although he did suggest the current market price (about £20,000 per tonne) looked likely to hold for some years, their current plan would aim to produce for a minimum of 8 years.

Just as a comment he said that there were over 1000 old mine shafts in the Poole/Cambourne area.

I went to one of their presentations and Owen Mihalop is an excellent public speaker. He could sell ice to the eskimos.

Whatever you think of Crofty, the shares are probably worth a punt for a year, because they will be going full retard over promoting their activities and it will be done very very well and it will be slick, convincing and anyone even the hardest cynic will be unable to risk their charms.

I would be watching the graph for the signial they have unloaded their own holding (or their representative has).

Remember. Making money out of mining doesn't necessarily involve selling ore. It's about investment.

I think they are a good punt and I think the people involved will make themselves a lot of money in the process. I would bet my cock and balls that not a milled kg of ore comes out of there.

They will probably pump it out, spent a lot of money making it look very very much like it's all go. In fact, when they announce they have reached phase 1 of the pumping, I'd sell all of my shares. In fact, I'm so convinced this is the way to go, I might put a few grand down.

Think you've hit the nail on the head there mate... was only talking to a friend and he was of the same opinion yesterday as he deals in the buying and selling of shares.

May well have a punt myself and pull just before the proverbial hits the fan...

Hope all's well with you...
