    Why they issued shares

    It's all about playing it safe. If Gold holds steady or rises they may lift the temporary closure. Meanwhile they pay down debt safeguarding against a possible gold crash. If gold holds steady their profit/cash flow increases considerably. They could sell the mine to the Chinese or other groups and payoff debt too, but I wouldn't want to sell for less than Fair Value. The price to cash flow was 7X with cost savings the ratio improves and they have the mine should prices improve. Management has done a good job cutting costs, reducing their all in cost to mine. I wonder who the new investors are. Should it turn out to be a Chinese group the whole mining industry could go parabolic..
