A. Silver would have to at least double before CDE could even hope to become profitable, excluding a rise in production cost.
"No further exploration"
A. CDE needs capital to "explore", they are currently blowing every cent on current production and debt interest, not to mention remediation on closed mines.
"No merger or aquisition"
A. Who, in your mind would merge with CDE with its' current debt load and incompetent (in my opinion) management? And, IF CDE is acquired, common shareholders will be entitled to zip considering the current debt load.
"You leave out the fact that production is rising against lower cost."
A. Only on paper, operational costs are not lower (do you have any info on the most recently signed 3-year labor agreement with the United Steel Workers of America Local 5114-03 and CDE?). And, more production will only deplete reserves faster, not good when not profitable.
"You are either a sore loser or short"
A. Wrong on both allegations, try again?
"Why do you care ??"
A. Why do you ask dumb questions and evade the issues?
