Jack, if they didn't sell it to Hunan, the mine woulda never restarted. Having worked at many Sb places in the world, I am inclined to think the Chinese hadn't done proper due diligence on this 'diamond in the rough' and got themselves burnt.

The QP , I know the R & R there at 6,000$/tc, if we do the Math 450 tpd from 2008 to 2013 let's say 5.5 years on 350 dpy it makes about 866Kt processed So basically they have mined about half of the ore available probably the easy ore.Have they taken the Juicy Crown pillar yet? If No they surely do not miss ore, It should have started with an open pit... What about the disseminated zones with Chinese names to the West? Keep in mind Ton of Sb concentrate went us 15,000$/t now at 10,000$, Just do the Math what 1 % Sb2S3 represent compared to copper price.at 7,000$/t My 2 cents

They must be waiting for the new EI rules to kick in, like the employers council. That will mean we will be importing more foreigners to work for cheaper and do the jobs that people won't do here because the wage is too low. Even the premier got Ross Ried now as a new deputy to address the problem. Another reason patronage doesn't work because they are just pawns put in place as a reward for something. Maybe she's scared that there won't be enough TAXPAYERS in 60 years to pay for muskrat, let alone the need for! But hey, she's popular with the voters in the province, just like harper is in the rest of Canada, but are they right!

Maybe if the former mine owners didn't sell the Beaver Brook Antimony Mine to Hunan Nonferrous or other Chinese based companies in the first place, this mess resulting in 90 great paying jobs lost would not have happened in the first place. As for Jerome Kennedy or Tom Marshall, start listening to people effected from mine closures and not faceless corporations.
