Now's the time you would wish for JC's intricate knowledge of these mineral reources.
My guess is, without going into great detail, that a lot of the properties are problematic, but offer a lot of potential. Atlas is changing itself around, has private placement for the exploration and certification, new management, high-power financing.
These properties are LOTS more than just speculative, they are real enough to attract 3rd party financing, and now the burden of dealing with them is off Telfer's plate while the potential is still largely intact.
There's a lot that can happen between mineralization drilling and mining camp, but these are real enough, it seems.
