Here's where I have to say you're wrong Aiken- CHNR is most certainly a 'mining' company. They've tunnelled right into the wallets of foolish amateur investors and mined a fortune.
In a month or two when this latest pump and dump has faded from memory I would just ask that they clue me in as to the time and date of the next ripoff cycle. Hell I'd invest in that kind of mining! Instead I'm reduced to tagging along after the fact and merely making a ridiculously profitably living shorting these stocks.
