Cash in the bank, assets in the ground, and production stockpiles
One has to wonder where the highest degree of risk is in today's environment. SSRI has a huge stockpile of cash, but is subject to devaluation by inflation and/or out right and overnight devaluation of currency. They have tangible assets in the ground but that can be exceptionally illiquid. They have a producing mine but are selling at depressed prices, relative to the most recent high for silver. Doesn't it seem a no brainer to follow Eric Sprott's advice and stockpile silver until prices rise? If more companies did this wouldn't it drive a law of supply and demand fundamental? IMOP management is missing the boat by holding large sums of cash, remember the derivatives losses in the millions some time back?
