And because evaporation is not an issue...
"Most operations use drip irrigation to minimise evaporation and provide more uniform distribution of the leach solution. " A whole pond full of solution didn't get dripped on the pad in one day. They pumped the solution from one pond to the other. They may have even pumped to pad #1 but they certainly didn't drip irrigate the heap in one day.

Gilead (ticker: GILD ) earned $2.94 a share as revenue surged 52% to $7.59 billion. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected per-share profit of $2.32 and revenue of $6.92 billion.Gilead raised its 2015 forecast for product sales by $2 billion, predicting between $28 billion and $29 billion. It also announced that it would start paying a quarterly dividend of 43 cents a share in June.

Really, as in #$%$! This PPS is ridiculously low. Other than an outright contract for the iPhone battery, what's left? We've got most major suppliers of anything that needs a battery lined up. We've got our EV Litium Batteries approved in China. They're still working on Wireless Charging Battteries. Costco Sola r energy deal still out there. And now China South Electric Grid? Next week is going to be Seriuos Fun!
Unquestionably the best defensive play in pharma to this point. From its high on 3/20, the IBB is down 8.2% as of today. GILD is up 2.2%. As for the other large biotechs: AMGN - 7%. CELG -14.7%. BIIB - 19.6%. REGN - 5%. VRTX - 8.6%. ICPY - 17.2%.
Among the larger stocks I hold (or held), only INCY has been relatively stable (down less than 1%). Most of the early stage biotechs have been clobbered, with the exception of HZNP (+24.7%) and DBVT (+5.2%). The first of these is an Irish company and the second a French company.
They know the players on all sides. The view they have is not one of chance but certainty. With FDA in their pocket and the ability to know ahead of time when events will take place it makes it a no lose game for them except on very rare occasions. Here they plant the trash on both sides in hopes to get people to fill their needs as you have spoken here Ed. We must be diligent as there are potential things that could and will affect this outside all of everyones ability to control. Wall Street gets all the players on the same page so that money is not taken from each other. This one is yet to see any light and won't until the players who control this game are in place. Be well my friend.
They do it to each other in 95% of their deaths yet you don't say anything about that. Why?
for all the longs complaining how many have been a CEO of a company like SNY or even a smaller company like MNKD that had sooooooooooo much potential.. I can tell you.. NONE!! ZERO .. Ziltch. I will side with MNKD and SNY! anyday of the week.

Sentiment: Strong Sell
With Frontline now able to pay back its bondholders, there should be no further obstacles preventing the merger of the two Fredriksen companies.
Frontline to repay bond now, freeing it up to merge with Frontline 2012 to create newest tanker giant
FRONTLINE’s convertible bond matures today, with the remarkable crude tanker freight market enabling the John Fredriksen-led company to pay back its bondholders in full, paving the way for a merger with Frontline 2012 to create the newest tanker giant on the water.
Experts believe a merger between the two John Fredriksen companies is tantalisingly close, once Frontline’s repayment obligation is out of the way, adding new spice to an already exciting tanker market for shipowners.
Frontline still has debt obligations to Ship Finance International, but this should not prove to be an insurmountable obstacle to a merger with Frontline 2012.
Frontline’s 14 very large crude carriers and Frontline 2012’s six VLCCs plus its two newbuildings, as well as Frontline 2012’s six newbuilding suezmaxes and other tankers, would be a perfect fit in today’s robust crude tanker market, coming at a time when size is becoming important and others are making big tanker plays, such as General Maritime Corp and Navig8 merging to create a 46-vessel tanker giant.
The potential merger of the two Frontlines comes as the bondholders of the remaining $93m are to be repaid in full due to sustained high earnings in the crude tanker freight market.
VLCC spot earnings are around $66,000 per day, up from around $60,000 per day at the previous reading, according to Baltic Exchange data.
These high earnings are materialising despite it being the traditionally weaker second quarter, when tanker demand normally slows due to refinery maintenance.
Therefore, improvements being witnessed in the freight market suggest there is a structural enhancement, rather than just a temporary boost.
Limited fleet growth and sufficient cargoes are lifting demand for tan
