Jerry, excellent thread. I had similar thoughts regarding the previous conference call and I think you are on the right track in believing that a Dengue partner is in the works. I also think you characterized Rose perfectly. For a company with sensitive government relationships, that also happens to be in full defense mode during a legal proceeding that will make or break its future, Rose is doing exactly what he needs to do, by talking the least amount possible about what the company is doing. Unfortunately, as investors in this company we are in a difficult position of being stuck in this information blackout. For some here, it is convenient to attack rose. It makes them feel better about the decision they made to invest in this company in the first place..
More than one sentence....

2014 Winter Drill Program Commences at South Tally Pond, Newfoundland
- Drill testing of the newly discovered Northwest zone
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Jan 29, 2014 - Canadian Zinc Corporation is pleased to announce the commencement of a winter diamond drill program at the Company's wholly-owned South Tally Pond zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold project in central Newfoundland. The planned drill program will consist of eight to ten drillholes, totaling 3,000 metres.
The 2014 winter drill program will follow up on favourable results from the 2013 drill programs, which totaled 8,300 metres in 26 drillholes at the Lemarchant deposit. Highlights of the 2013 drilling programs include the discovery of Northwest zone located 250 metres to the northwest of the Lemarchant deposit and further extensions to the Lemarchant deposit (see Company news release dated December 11, 2013 and April 17, 2013).
Priority drill targets for 2014 include testing for additional massive sulphide mineralization to expand the newly discovered Northwest zone and expanding the known Indicated and Inferred resources of the Lemarchant deposit. The 2014 program is fully supported by funds from the $4 million flow-through financing, which closed on August 20th, 2013.
Mick Davis, the former chief executive officer of Xstrata Plc, is seeking to raise at least $3 billion from investors before he starts buying mines for his X2 Resources, according to people with knowledge of his plans.
Davis, who has so far raised $1 billion, is targeting mines already in operation or close to producing, said the people, asking not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. Davis may initially limit the number of investors in X2 to six or seven, with each providing $500 million, they said.
The South African born 55-year-old is looking to repeat his success at Xstrata, where he led the management team that took the coal producer from a company with a $500 million market capitalization to one valued at $50 billion through a decade of mergers, acquisitions and expansion. Davis favors copper, coal or zinc assets for X2, the people said.
X2 could target deals valued at $12 billion to $15 billion after raising debt on top of the funds it gets directly from investors, the people said. Davis declined to comment.
