I haven't heard any rumors, where are you hearing this from? The last time I heard anything regarding GPR and them actively seeking acquisition of another mine was last fall when Archer has stated publicly that they had a team that was looking at possible acquisition of another mine either in SA or Mexico and that there mission/goal through any acquisition is to take them to the next level as a mid tier producer, which can help the S/P longer term.
