quite a story, go to their website. if you dont think the company will ever receive the needed permits, dont buy. but ask yourself first, why would the government, if they arent going to issue the permits to go to completion, allow a company to invest in the mine development and so forth, if the govt wasnt going to complete the permitting process. the day it is announced that canadian zinc has received all the necessary permits, the stock will go to 8.00 - 10.00 in one day. that is a 10-1 risk reward ratio, and the basis for at least a speculative buy.
