    Silver Wheaton to use stock to buy mines

    Silver Wheaton is the ultimate bubble--

    There is no way in the world any mine will continue selling there future productions.

    So they are going to have to buy the mines..

    The most undervalued mines with no debt will go first/ HL and TC TGB because its so cheap

    GBG for its leverage and NG

    • Interesting thesis but they aren't in the mining business right? They are in the silver streaming business. What makes you think that SLW would be good at the mining business?

    • HL might possibly be a candidate in someone's eyes and an offer (if ever made) would make for interesting discussion.

      I see to potential issues. First, there has been some limited discussion in the past about anti-takeover plans that HL has documented (somewhere). I have never seen those plans or a credible description of what they actually entail. If the plans are documented on the Hecla web site, I haven't seen them. Finally, if in fact there were a serious attempt to acquire the company (HL), would that not require a vote of the share holders on the question? Or, does the board have exclusive domain on the decision?

      It sure would be interesting to see a vote on something. I wonder how the shorts of the 40+ million shares would react? Also, how about the folks that bought the bogus shares?
