SWC has extreme high labor cost to ever compete and make money
I think they have a difficult time keeping their mines staffed with an adequate labor force. Not enough young blood is entering that field and as older hard rock miners retire they are harder & harder to replace.
mexicans dont like to work inside mine shafts?
I saw this awhile ago about their efforts to address that issue.http://billingsgazette.net/articles/2006/10/15/news/business/25-mining.txt
Which foreign metal is being dumped to cause SWC to drop? Pd & Pt are at or near recent highs?Since you're a perrenial SWC short, I'm not surprised.
