I will go on record as both an experienced “geologist of the world” (visited Cerro Casale in 1991) and an analyst (since 2007) by saying this:
I “see no real value” in either the Cerro Casale or Caspiche projects. Neither is economic and that is the reason that Barrick/Kinross has chosen not to develop Casale and Exeter has not found a partner to fund nor has been able to obtain financing on its own to development Caspiche.
There is no need to hide under the veil of anonymity when giving an honest opinion. Please feel free to post this using my name as its source.

Good to have the opportunity to clear this up.
