    If this project can process dirt through a mill at 0.2% Moly (even if its only in the first few years, the numbers are ballistic in size).

    I've assumed $20lb Moly market price. Moly is currently about $30lb).

    Once the stockbroking mining analysts go over this, I would dare say they will give their dealers are pretty favourable outlook.

    The following costings are based on those used in a recent feasibility report published by Ruby Creek in Canada except I have been more conservative than them by increasing capex by $200M to $500M.

    This is a modest size set up. Moly Metals is much bigger.

    Total Material mined 22,000,000 Tonnes p.a
    Milled 7,200,000 p.a.
    Stock Pile 800,000 p.a.
    Waste 14000000 p.a
