Good old Eldorado Gold (EGO) (, making your PDAC Monday morning that much funnier

Eldorado Gold (EGO) ( started its NR today with this...
VANCOUVER , March 2, 2015 /CNW/ - Eldorado Gold ("Eldorado" or the "Company") hereby informs that on Friday February 27, 2015 , its Greek subsidiary, Hellas Gold S.A ., received a formal notice from Greece's Ministry of Productive Reconstruction, Energy and Environment (the "Ministry" or "Ministry of Energy") revoking the approval required to complete final construction of the processing plant at the Skouries Project.
...which means of course that the company is deep in the doo-doo as regards Greece (but frankly, those of us paying attention knew that already). However ELD saved the best til last with this unintentional hilarity at the end
"...the recent decision of the Ministry of Energy - if not reversed in a timely manner - may force Eldorado to reconsider its investment plans for Greece."
Translation: "Now look here you small brown chappies! If you don't allow us to mine in your country we may consider stopping our mining activities. So there."

Moral: Never underestimate the quantity of utter dumbasses running any given mining company.
