I remember this Silvermex (SLX.to) getting pumped to over a Loonie in late 2010 and plenty of mouthbreathers getting on then (to da moon alice, etc). I also remember Sprott getting loads in a 62c placement, so he’s walking away even on this, it seems. It’s not one I’ve ever owned but overall it looks like a bite-sized chunk of fun at a cheap price for FR.to that’ll give it a bit more production ooomph without much of a dent to the balance sheet. Big fish eat the little fish, way it’s always been.
