Great Panther Silver (GPR.to): DON'T LOOK AT THE TRUE WIDTHS!!! DON'T!!! JUST LOOK AT THE HEADLINES, SUCKAZ!!!

This morning the serial mediocrity of Great Panther Silver (GPR.to) was reaffirmed by this NR. It actually starts quite brightly with a sheep-catching headline "Great Panther drills 1,681g/t silver over 3.15m at Topia" cos that's pretty darned good grading, isn't it? And you can bet serial pumper Mexico "Oh No Definitely No Hidden Agenda" Mike will be oozing all over it for his flock later today, too, along with the delinquents GPR uses to pump their stock like Jonathan Lebed. But if you dare to look closer at today's NR you see that this headline just aint all it's cracked up to be.
Yeah, really. Here's the drill results as presented in the NR with your author highlighting in red a couple of things:

So we see that although the drillcore did return 3.15m at 1,681 g/t Au, the true width of the vein (remembering that drills are done at angles to the way the vein runs) is just 0.67m!! This is much more along the lines of the Topia deposit, typified by skinny skinny veins of decent grade (plenty of evidence in that table above, as well as all the previous results published) that brings the pisspoor revenues and results we've come to expect from this overhyped company.

There's a line that runs between "putting best foot forward" and "trying to con the sheep". GPR has crossed that line so many times there's little doubt as to the company promo tactics. Today's NR is just another in the series.
