I feel they have come too far in thr process and money is still being spent. All new PR's coming out from the company have not mentioned anything at all about any delays to starting prodution at Butte, so why would I think anything else otherwise? The time is drawing closer, and I would hate to be on the sidelines when the HRP comes through and it is PR'ed that production would begin immediately. This stock can see multiple huge days to the upside.
The HRP delay was due to ''the requirement to undertake a comprehensive hydrological study to address water discharge''. Since they don't process the ore at site, the water discharged should mainly be the water used by the workers going to the toilet. Maybe that will stop the whole project :)
