News from Banks Island Gold (BOZ.v), Louis James’s “biggest personal position”

In three snack-sized parts.
1) Here’s what Louis Lobito Little Wolf James, fake geologist and chief rock kicker at Casey Research, said about Banks Island Gold (BOZ.v) in 2014 when he pumped the merry bejeez out of it and got people in at 50c (and here’s an extract line or two):
“I want to remind readers that both Doug Casey and I own shares
in Banks. Personally, it remains my largest position.”
“…I’m reiterating my renewed Buy recommendation. Whatever happens in the
near term, these shares are a great buy, whether for a first tranche or a
I intend to buy more myself—after giving you a chance to do so first.”
2) Here’s what IKN said about Banks Island Gold (BOZ.v) when your humble scribe eventually took a look at the thing (and here’s an extract line):
“Seriously. I mean, seriously, how can anyone in their right mind like a
company with a balance sheet like this? Let alone somebody as dangerous
to other people as Lobito who recommends it to other people. Especially
when those people are a bunch of naive sheeplike followers who require a
little expertise in the sector, not tripledumb investment advice?”
“I knew Louis James was stupid about geology. I didn’t realize how stupid
he was about financials. The above is just plain embarrassing, it’s
amateur hour level.”
3) And here’s what BOZ.v said today:
