You might be thinking of streets of gold and travellers making it to be Lord Mayor, but this humble corner of cyberspace marks down the cat as a panther, namely Great Panther Silver (GPR.to) (GPL) and the dude in the title as J. Richard H. Whittington, known to the world as Dick and once-upon-a-time head of Farallon Resources.
And all because Dick W is slated as a new director of GPR.to, with the vote on his appointment due in the June 28th company AGM. Will this decent mining brain with successes to his name (particularly Farallon, which got bought out) manage to breathe some life into this underperforming dog of a silver company? Only time will tell, but if Dick Whittington's performance at PNG Gold (PGK.v) in 2011 and 2012 (until he resigned in April '12) is anything to go by, we say "don't hold your breath".
Oh, one more thing: Dick Whittington has a reputation for slapping legal actions and trying to sue any interwebnetpipes badmouthing of his good name, so it might be fun to watch whether GPR.to keeps paying pumpers to pump its stock to the naive. Hey Dick, time to advise Archer on how real mining companies do things before your name is sullied.
