I have stated this several times. I don't hold my breath. If it were happens great, I don't own it because of it, although like many here I hope and would love to see a larger miner come in with an offer. Just because GPL is looking to acquire doesn't mean that another larger miner couldn't come along and make an offer to share holders. Management has no control over that and if dumbo knows anything he knows that. He just neglects to respond to that when I throw it out there. Nothing is written in stone in this or any sector. Just because GPL want this or that doesn't make it so, until it is so. There are many variables and factors that can change things. There is nothing that would be sweeter than waking up one morning and finding out GPL has had or is being purchased and seeing the S/P up 1, 2, or 3 dollars. It's happened to a number of other miners I've traded or followed and it is expected to increase this year as the metal prices continue to climb and larger companies look to expand and grow the source of their resources. I hope for it, but I don't hold my breath.
