    The mine

    And so you are talking about Gibraltar? When Mercator went belly-up two years ago, I suggested that TGB also BUY Mineral Park. It's a Twice "upgraded" CU-MB-AG mine in AZ with power, water, road and up and running... AND it sold for Just $10m.... but TGB spent $10m on Aley instead... LOL...

    Your post is what is G worth??? ... Who cares, who would buy it, IT LOSES MONEY... duh...

    Produce ten million pounds, lose a dollar a pound, and you LOSE $10,000,000... Basic math...

    TGB is a Sub .50c penny stock... and NOBODY will pay extra cause 'you think so'..

    DD = Due Diligence, then you just need better math Skills...

    Just remember, you asked,

    ...and it's in the middle of nowhere...

    They have to get a permit, build a road, get more permits, drill some more, get an industry acceptable estimate, create a pre-feasibility, then drill again, design a plan, do a feasability study... and figure out if it's even worth going after...

    ... then they got to finalize a mine plan, and then... after several years, finally fole for an actual permit/license...

    Don't forget... they have no road, no power, no infrastructure and no Idea if it's feasible... and then there's the Indians who own all of BC, gottra deal with them... and then theres still the endangered Bears that #$%$ at the minesite...

    Sorry but they'd be better off buying a new Copper mine...

    NIOBIUM IS NOT GOLD and nver will be....

    and to tick off the rest here... NIOBIUM is no more a 'rare earth element' than Moly is....

    You state, "The stated dimensions of a solid niobium find make a compellig argument in Taseko's prospects for the future. add to the fact that this quarter's eps could be excellent and TGB could well breakout out as a new multi dimensional miner."

    Since I posted this I 2011, TGB is DOWN 90% an still no Aley...

    Aley post from Jan 2011...
    Tantalum-Niobium International Study Center

    http://tanb.org/niobium

    "The primary mineral from which niobium is obtained is known as pyrochlore. The world's largest deposit is located in Araxá, Brazil and is owned by Companhia Brasileira de Metalurgia e Mineração (CBMM). The reserves are enough to supply current world demand for about 500 years, about 460 million tons. The mining of weathered ore, running between 2.5 and 3.0% Nb2O5, is conducted by simple open pit mining without the need for drilling and explosives. Approximately 85 to 90% of the niobium industry obtains its niobium ores from sources other than those associated with the mining of tantalum-containing ores.

    Another pyrochlore mine in Brazil is owned and operated by Anglo American Brasil Mineração Catalão and contains 18 million tonnes at 1.34% niobium oxide. The third major deposit of pyrochlore being actively mined is the Niobec Mine in Quebec, Canada, owned by Cambior, with reserves of 18,000 tonnes."

    Let me make several points... I repeat...

    "Companhia Brasileira de Metalurgia e Mineração (CBMM). The reserves are enough to supply current world demand for about 500 years, about 460 million tons. The mining of weathered ore, running between 2.5 and 3.0% Nb2O5, is conducted by simple open pit mining without the need for drilling and explosives."

    They have 460 Million tons, a 500 year supply from an operating/permitted mine with a shallow high grade deposit... by comparison the other 2 are nothing...

    All they have to do is dig...

    TGB has a .65% deposit, the big mine has between 2.5 and 3.0% Nb2O5... and the deposit is tiny by comparison...

    and it's in the middle of nowhere...

    Hey Copper, what does it matter...? A couple years ago, Mercator had a GREAT mine, twice improved, fully operational with a great future... then they went belly up and some guy bought the $700m mine, two upgrades for another $4-500M and EVERTHING that went with it for $10m... at the time I posted here hat TGB should buy it for cheap... Instead they spent the $10m on that 'hole in the ground, aley... tossed millions down the drain instead of owning a fully operational mine... Over a $1 .2b mine... Mineral Park in AZ.

    What would G be worth if they sold it? WAY Less than they owe on it, by HUNDREDS of Millions.. you just don't get it...

    They can mine 100 million tons of 'whatever', if they LOSE just $1 per ton, they LOSE $100 MILLION DOLLARS...

    You can pump all you want, use bad math to come up with ridiculous valuations and ignore the FACT that TGB consistently LOSES money.... Knock yourself out!

    There is a reason that TGB is UNDER .50C, and UNDER $110m market cap...

    Vegas

    PS Florence is already in the Price... sorry.

    Niobium Aley Project $12.861 Trillion

    I think it was Mark Twain who called a Mine, " A hole in ground, with a Liar on top"... and even though the quote can't be verified, this is a VERY good example... $12T? LOLOLOL that's funny...

    ... IF that were true, it would only cost them $14T to build and mine it... right?

    avegasdude777 avegasdude777 Jun 21, 2016 4:46 PM Flag

    Yeah, sure... lol. Aley is worth trillions... LOL. You clearly have no clue.

    That's why TGB is a penny stock miner with 1 unprofitable mine(G), another 'Used to be, maybe profitable mine' that may NEVER get to full production(F), another they CAN'T get approval of(P), and a waste of time hole in the ground that will NEVER get permitted in the next decade... and once/if they do, will cost too much and they won't make money off of it(A), just like the Copper mine they have that 'USED to be profitable' with $2 copper... Then they improved it, lollolollol... once, twice and thrice... now it loses money consistently

    I have been following TGB since well before Aley, well before Curis was even called Curis, let alone Florence, since before P1... well over ten years... It's good to know some pumper that just found TGB knows better than I do... not to mention the rest of the markets and the World...

    Mr Market says TGB is worth LESS than NIOBF, and they don't even mine anything yet... they also don't have Florence or Gibraltar... It also says TGB is a 'half buck stuck in the muck' stock with little to no hope of success...

    BUT you know better than everybody, right? Better than ALL of the Markets, all of the commentators, all of the press, and all of the REAL investors that have had enough of TGB BS...

    If you are such an Investing genius, why are you posting, pumping and chasing a penny stock like TGB???

    AND criticizing others too? ALL my statements are based in fact, reflecting past performance for MANY years, and ARE CORRECT! Sorry..

    Have you ever read the stuff you write?

    You can search 'Vegas' and 'Aley' on this board and read the real analysis from YEARS ago... back when TGB was almost a Billion $ company... now it can barely hold a hundred million market cap and a .50c stock price...

    'Aley is worth Trillions' is the funniest thing I've heard all year so far...

    A good lesson in doing your own homework folks, Due Diligence, there's no substitute.

    1. Your math is off by multiples...
    2. TGB will never get a permit for Aley...
    3. They will never get this foley actually Financed.
    4. They will lose $ on every Kilo mined.
    5. Elk creek is over a decade ahead of TGB and Brazil has a 235 year supply AT SURFACE that can be mined by a six year old with a shovel and wagon...
    6. Aley will take OVER a decade more to permit, if possible, 2 years to start const and Finance, and 2-3 years more to build it. Then they will lose even more money.
    7. Aley is in Canada, NOT the US, and it's NOT a 'rare' Strategic mineral... there is plenty for all. if you want a US source, again look at Elk Creek. More, higher quality, better location and ready to go...
    ... you can pump it all you want, it won't get any better grade, won't transport to a closer location, and probably won't get done by anybody working for TGB today since it will take decades to get online...

    Try getting out of 'handicapped penny stock miners' and look a some real companies... or keep chasing the stock I left for dead years ago at $4+, even though they CAN'T make any money, CAN'T GET A PERMIT, and still have the same idiots running it that have paid salaries, but run the company into the ground.

    TGB used to have a profitable Gibraltar, money in the bank, no debt and good prospects. Now they've spent enough on G to make it unprofitable for YEARS, no or little real cash, loaded up as much debt as they can and have been throwing millions down a toilet in 'Dogpoop' Canada named Aley...

    You people crack me up, NO DD on the history of TGB up to mow? You can't do math, and you people are buying stock... Really?

    In 2010-11-12 TGb 'passed' on a US based Niobium Project IN THE US... back then $20m would have gotten them a project over a DECADE ahead of Aley...

    Instead, Russ and H-D spent on Aley... today TGB has a market cap of $111M US, and Quantum(Now NIOBF) has a market cap of $118M US... worth $7m MORE than TGB....

    Aley is a joke, and a waste of time and MONEY, lots of it too!!!

    It's ALSO NOT IN THE US... it's a mediocre deposit in the middle of nowhere in Canada, of all places. They don't build NEW MINES in Canada anymore...

    Aley is a sad song unless you are singing to yourself... sorry.

    avegasdude777 • Jan 18, 2012 2:40 PM
    The Jan Presentation shows 2012 Aley Budget at $18M... Now it's up to $31M for Aley and New P...
    Page 16 it's in the middle of NOWHERE...
    Page 17 ... and it's in a mountain in the middle of NOWHERE...
    Page 18 and it's only 239M/lbs of unobtainium in the MIDDLE OF NOWHERE!!!
    NO 43-101 estimate, no road, no power, no people, no infrastructure even remotely close...
    The road and power line alone will cost more than I want to even think about...
    THEN, they need approval and a whole new EVERYTHING to get it done... UNOBTAINIUM is an understatement...
    This will never get done, not in my life...
    Other than a South American company with a 500 year supply AT SURFACE, so easy to mine a 6 year-old with a bucket and shovel can get it... they don't even blast, just dig it... too easy... and they are raising production by 50%... Niobium or Naive-ium by Russ and Co...?
    Then there's the cost/capex... 18M this year alone...!!!????!!!
    For what? to get it to estimate feasibility?

    Ummmm, there is a deposit that is higher grade, with 4X the amount of Niobium, that has full consent of all owners, that sits NEXT TO an Interstate Highway(!!!), has WATER, HAS POWER(!!!!) and has already been drilled... and the company can be had for less than TGB is spending/wasting this year alone on Aley..."

    They could have had Elk Creek for a SONG!!!

    ...and from 2011... a year before that...

    Still down 90%...?

    avegasdude777 avegasdude777 Jun 8, 2016 5:33 PM Flag

    My mail is screwed up, got your note, can't send back...
    Still have uuraf @.232c...
    still have all or most Niocrap(up), NvCU(DOWN), and just hit a homer on that MGN pick from over a year ago... at a four bagger there. wish it was Nio or Nv cu... but still holding.

    STILL, don't like the FAKE markets, but like the sector better since Jan....

    We have gone from $10T to $20T in Debt, That's 1 and 1/8 Trillion $$'s Per Year for the last 8 years.. YET, we can't even do a 2% GDP and the Fed CAN'T raise the Interest rate above .25%... that's 1/4 of one percent?!?

    ... and asset classes like Cu are in the tank??? ...here's a word nobody uses anymore, inflation.

    I like select parts of the sector... just NOT TGB, sorry Russ, Gjohn, etc... they MAY do OK, but there are better plays, IMO. Much Better. I really did buy the first US traded offerings of Curis, also been there many times, and always said it was a 'Peach"... it's also 'in the price' already, TGB is lucky to have it...

    But Aley is another story and just what I said it was 3-4 years ago and specifically two Jan's ago.. 'a hole in the ground in the middle of nowhere' and may as well be an UNOBTANIUM mine.. NEVER going to happen in Russ's or My lifespans... How and when are they gonna get an 'approval' anyway? Do they even still build new mines in Canada? Aley is just a hole to throw money down... sorry again...

    I will stop in from time to time... it's been quite the 'story' all these years of twists and turns...

    Staying objective and NOT getting 'personally invested' pays off every time... Clear thinking = profits. I did have a great time reading all that BS for years.. nice to get a payday. I sold a bunch over two years ago during that run-up, so all these share were bought with profits anyway, but will do the same soon and sell at least half... I think AG and HL both have more to go, and MGN should be pegged with HL anyway.

    Good to hear you didn't fall for all that death spiral and BK gibberish and sell out too soon.

    You da man Bob!

    So I ignored 'Sybil' and her handful of multi-ID loser posts, ignored DB-Loser and his Pro-rvm and anti-mgn tirades, rants and BS, I ignored the 'death spiral' fantasy he was pumping along with all the claims of impending bankruptcy... and figured with a permit, no loser BS lawsuits and few obstacles left, last spring I got a bunch at .43 to .45 with profits from a previous MGN trade... basically a free ride. Last spring's posts on trades are still around.

    I even held during the Materials Bear markets of last year, and in Dec added more between .15 an .20 when DB and his alter ego were posting to each other about the demise of MGN...

    Now I am up 100+% on the original shares, and a crazy profit off the cheap December shares... in barely over 12 mos total...

    Should I take the money and run, or hold and let them convert to HL shares... Bob?

    Hope all the LOSER BASHERS didn't chase all the longs away... this was a nice score!
