Scott Drever has mining in his blood. He's been working in the industry for 45 years. Silvercrest is an actual producer of silver and gold. In fact the name is a misnomer as half their revenue is coming from gold. They've got $33 million in the bank, $10 million in highly liquid inventory and much more on the way. They're also very open to profitable acquisitions and as we know there's no shortage of juniors that are down on their luck and unable to obtain financing for very viable and profitable projects. Therefore, Silvercrest's prospects for growth look quite favorable. But as always, be careful when dealing with juniors. We don't own this one yet, but we might at some point in the future.
