Why has zinc dropped 15% in the last 60 days? Although the Reids fraudulently claim their company is first and foremost a gold producer, those that understand the the truth know the real revenue generators for SORO are silver and zinc. And unfortunately, both are suffering badly. Compound the revenue losses from dropping prices is the reality of the impact of the double taxation (totallng approx 40%) and skyrocketing costs. The headwinds are very powerful at the moment and it is understandable why the Reids continue to hint that the dividend's current size may be unsustainable.
