Answer: William W. Reid.
And here’s the filing to prove it. 400k options granted to the departing bossman Bill, presumably by way of thanks for all that running the stock price into the ground that he’s done. The options are priced at 25 cents (seriously), they’re exercisable on October 10th 2003 and they also expire on October 10th 2013 and by my reckoning, that makes October 10th an interesting day for GORO share price action. All just days before HOC gets to play dumpy dumpy, too. That’s lucky, innit, Bill?
You have been duly warned.
