Great success story. Congratulations Mark on a great career, and you seem to be still enjoying getting your hands dirty in the work, albeit with 'silk' gloves on these days...you earned them. A question...how is it that so many 'good news' NL stories get put down by so many other NLers...why is that? Individual success stories have to be NL geographically based...or it's not a 'real' Jam Jam. Hmmmm! Do the dance of joy for Mark and his family, and wish him many more successes into the future, Best wishes, go ahead say it...you'll feel good.. Nay sayers...get off your butts, and do some work....you'll soon enjoy the sweet taste of success whether it's 'made in NL' or by happenstance 'elsewhere'. Born NLer...you die a NLer. What happens in between.. You nay sayers out there write an ending. Just taste the feel of 'thinking positive. Then go out and 'DO IT'. My apologies, I had to say that....you see, I got off my butt, and feel all the better for having said...it works! Thank you for the opportunity.

Hardly NL's golden boy....maybe BC's or NWT where he's doing his exploration.He's been gone from NL over 20 years and was educated in Ottawa and Austrailia. As far as his grandfather hunting around the Butterpots, I grew up in the area and i never knew anyone that hunted in this area or that it was a potential mining site. Perhaps the telegram should do a story on someone like Brian Dalton(dont know him personally) and Altius Minerals....now this is actually a NL company with ties to exploration in NL....nuff said.

Nice story but the guy has been gone for 20 years from NL. Let's tell a story about a "golden boy or girl" who stayed and made good. Read the story about Jeremy Charles on page F1 and his restaurant Raymond's on Water Street. Amazing story about a NLer who is still here contributing to the NL economy!
