Mali has been a Large receiver of foriegn aid.
Now that the Military junta refuses to return

the illigitimate military coupers will be looking
for hard cash to continue their illicit hold on
power. Hard currency as in Gold.
BTW, the Graham number for ABX is 43.55,
at 34.23 USD a share, it is 27% Undervalued.
