    HL has finally bottomed........

    hard to see good ball clay sold as kitty litter.
    Standard kitty litter bentonite sells for about $23 per
    ton, whereas, ball clays as good as KT sell for
    $55-85.

    The idea that they sell into the sealant market is
    not a bad one though. Thats a good market, as is the
    potential for sales into the structural concrete
    market.

    I would not put it past Sibilcon to make a bid. The
    do not currently have US capacity and WBB clays have
    minimal penetration into the US market. They also have
    the cash to play.
