    Agreed. This is a startup mining operation of the largest lithium deposit in North America, with
    some drilling mud additives besides. Well either get this thing of the ground with the current
    management, or someone else will do it down the road. Right now, as in the past, I believe this
    group can and will do it; but only time wlll tell. Personaly, I was hopeful that it would happen
    sooner; but I'm not disheartend at all. It is what it is, and onward we go. We are making steady
    progress. Rome wasn't built in a day, and I have always viewed this as a desk drawer investment,
    not some 'get rich quick' scheme. That is my personal investor sentiment - to each his own.

    Traders driving WLCDF's stock down

    patience: Agreed. On the bright side, the share price drop is on a very short term situation
    driven by the traders. There has been no negative fundamental reason for the price drop.
    If the Fernley plant caught fire, THEN I'd worry. Patience will win the day. :-)

    Continuing to accumulate WLCDF on a daily basis. Filled two orders today in the AM. Waiting now for
    trading day end, and if we get another sell-off late in the day, we'll put in another buy order. If not, then
    back to the schedule for tomorrow. IMO, today was a very good day to acquire he stock between now
    and year end.

    WL is startup a mining company. As such we are basically a commodity play. However, unlike some other
    miners, (ie. gold),we are also involved in refining our raw materials to produce saleable products. IMO,
    domestic commodities might fare better than some other market segments in the coming months/years.

    Be of good cheer for America. These are troubling times; but America will survive and thrive. We are
    a nation of strong and good people. As Lincoln said, 'You can fool some of the people some of the time.
    You can fool all of the people some of the time; but you will cannot fool all of the people all of the time.'

    I like the "cone of silence". When competitors are very 'hush-hush' on something, that
    tells me they are seriously considering something that might be significantly impacting
    their competitive position in a positive manner.

    I believe that Mr. Friedland was in Vancouver this week for a speaking
    engagement. Perhaps he and his old 'mob buddies' found time to break
    bread with one another.

  • Yesterday evening, a Vegas radio station was discussing Rory Reid, and the subject of the 'gigaplant' location
    came up. The moderator said that he had heard, that "...a number of Tesla executives are down on Nevada
    as the location for the plant, as they believe that the area lacks the number of skilled workers to staff such
    a plant." He said they also had concerns about the future employment as the Nevada educational system
    is lacking in turning our students in those technical disciplines.

    One of the most infamous Nevada brothels, the "Mustang Ranch" is located in Storey County. The brothel
    tried to go publicaly traded in 1990; but could not get a NASDQ license. If the gigaplant located there, with
    6000+ employees, the brothel business could boom. They might want to go for an IPO again, and if so,
    it might be a hot investment in more ways than one. Just say'n. :-)

    Thanks for the news, you old "Windjammer". ...."southern Nevada"....could that have been tied into the
    'Skunkworks' project in the Valley? Also,the timing of the recent hiring of Mr. Wright to honcho this deal ties
    in perfectly. Onward we go!

    Salty: Thanks for sharing. To date, I had found that the clay mining in Armagosa Valley is bentonite.
    I'm unaware at this time of any hectorite clay deposits in the valley. In pursuing some link between
    WL and the agriculture in Armagosa Valley I found that bentonite clay is not only used for drilling
    mud; but as a "binder" in producing alfalfa pellets. Pelletizing alfalfa is becoming a fast growing
    market product for alfalfa producers. Two main advantages of pelletized alfalfa is storage shelf
    life to livestock breeders (doesn't mold up as quickly as does the bulk bales), and two, they
    can very effectively control the daily rationing diets of their livestock versus feeding bulk alfalfa
    to their herds.

    I would seem more likely that the "skunks" are pursuing drilling mud applications for increasing
    the water sources in the valley to the growers using our Hectatone products versus the bentonite -
    OR, they are working with whatever bentonie product we might be able to produce based on
    our CEO's remark about developing uses for our bentonite, OR even all of he afforementoned.

    Thanks for sharing that. Texas is very aggressive in attracting business. I don't count them out
    in this high stakes game. That would be another coup for the Lone Star state.

    patience - I fully agree. Our CEO has stock options at $1.25/share (Can.) that expire at the end of
    the 2015 calendar year. He, and us, will be making a little money in this stock by the time his options
    expire. The company didn't pick that option price out of thin air, and he, and any others holding those
    options now have every financial incentive to meet and exceed that target by that date. Onward we
    go - "patience is virture".

    Agreed. Was a very nice week for all shareholders. I'm now going back to my porch for awhile and
    watch the 'big dogs' play. All this high volume and excitement are just too stressful for me. Time to
    relax again and smell the roses. Once the Fernley plant opens and we sniff some "Hectatone" orders
    heading our way, I will probably get back to the party. Until then, I'm going to relax and smell the
    roses. Good fortune to all.

    There are also newly published reports that BMW is in talks with TESLA about paying to acquire use of
    some of TESLA's patents for their own electric vehicle pursuits. BMW has been the most aggressive
    German auto maker in this potential market area, and is trying hard to get a leg up on Volkswagon
    in that market.
