    That $25 mln NPV is a bottom value. Assumptions for NPV calculation are today's silver and gold price as well as a discount rate of 10% per annum. In my opinion that NPV will end up much higher when we will look back in ten years time.

    I wonder why a 10% discount rate is taken. The discount rate is the rate of return that could be earned on an investment in the financial markets with similar risk or the opportunity cost of capital. 10% in today's deflationary market with a "fixed" zero interest rate for the next few years sounds like a bit out of proportion. A discount rate of 3% would be closer to reality right now. But the big illusion is in taking today's gold and silver price as the basis. Margins are right at the bottom right now and can only go up.
