Maybe an accounting lesson is needed for the surging fellow. These costs are estimates and mixed with both variable and fixed. Costs could very well go down in 2014 if the shafts that require infra-structure now are still in operation in 2014.
Don't let facts get in the way of a 16% short float.
Surprised more isn't shorted, the management is a disaster and expecting them to 'outperform' or even meet deadlines is crazy. They have been saying costs will go down for 5 years by the way. I think in 2013 costs were supposed to be in the low 300s not the $560 they are saying now.
