    Why does a company go into a trading halt?
    They make an announcement they are going in a trading halt 'pending results on drilling', why not just give us the results?
    Or 'we are in a trading halt due to a capital raising'
    We now know they want to raise capital, why the halt?
    Any thoughts on this would be good, I think it is crazy!
