I asked about the permit and , of course, they can't say anything definitively but they are optimistic that they might be able to speed the process up a bit by a more focused approach. I didn't post this because it is so speculative and it is what it is! There are some timelines imbedded in the state process but no one knows if they will hold. It is just a water handling modification and TLR is proposing a state of the art treatment process that will leave the water far purer than it is originally, so the belief is this won't be too long a process.
It comes down to a race in which Timberline will be very, very successful and the price will climb very nice for all of us. or cash will dry up and it will be crash and burn. The gold is there, but will it be dug in time for Timberline to survive and grow. The clock is ticking and it is my hope the company will now be more aggressive in doing what needs to be done to get the mining started.
