Nice to see you naming your sources, guys. Not.
This from today's "Scotia Scoop" thingy:
"Scotia Mining Sales this morning noting that Tahoe Resources is set to kick off the year on the right foot with good news coming out of the company’s newest gold mine, Shahuindo, located in Peru. First of all, we’re expecting the company to announce first substantial gold production from the mine in the next couple of weeks – rumour has it that the company has actually already “technically” poured its first gold from the operation (and before Christmas to boot!), however the amount was miniscule enough to not make a big deal about it (ie. a major press release)."
1) On Tuesday IKN breaks news that should have been broken by the company
2) All the brokerages read the IKN post and immediately speed-dial THO HQ
3) Kevin, Ira and all their friends cover their embarrassing tracks by telling the callers the first pour was "miniscule" (sic) and "not worth mentioning" (which is total bullshit of course, it was a sizable pour and 100% material)
4) On Wednesday the lapdog sellside community fall into line.
PS: By the way Scotia, it's not "miniscule", it's "minuscule". And don't bother me about the frequency argument either, ok? The disadvantages of a classical eddycation, innit.
