Imperial Metals ( has this week's late Friday news release classic

Here's the NR. And you read...and read some more...and down a bit more...and then down to paragraph twelve (!) and...

At March 31, 2015, the Company had cash of $6.5 million and a working capital deficiency of $35.6 million. Following completion of the construction of the Red Chris mine, commissioning of the mill commenced and the first concentrate was produced in February 2015. However, due to production slowdowns related to temporarily reduced water supply, it will take additional time for the mine to consistently achieve design levels of throughput and production. As a result, the Company will not be able to meet the June 1, 2015 date for completion under the Senior Credit Facility. The Company is in discussions with its lenders to extend the date for it to achieve completion. However, without a waiver or extension from its lenders the Company will be in default under the Senior Credit Facility effective June 1, 2015.

Hmmm...default on Senior Credit. That good or bad, y'say?
