Agreed. That is typical for all mining companies, and if there were fatalities or injuries then the shorts would be harping on that, so it was something to highlight on a CC but not dwell on. Constantine at the helm (previous CEO of Neo Materials that was absorbed) will be much more firm about company direction, knows how to highlight assets for shareholder value, and this CEO swap out will be a positive mid- to long term once the marketplace gets a chance to see the new sherrif in town. He was extremely success in taking Neo Materials from $3 to $11 per share and all of those assets are now mixed in with MCP and the marketplace didn't get that acquisition. Constantine will do a much better of job of unpacking why this vertical integration strategy has put MCP on the top of the heap and light years ahead of Lynas or AVL or TAS or REE with their mine to magnet strategy.
Can't wait for the Quarter 1 2013 conference call when they've had time to right the ship. Quarter 4 will be more of the same since this change is happening at the end, but 2013 is looking much brighter.
