First Majestic (from yesterday):

Excuses included re-synching material at La Encantada (which looks for all the world like reprocessing more tailings again, what with the recovery drop) and...errr...other stuff. Crappy quarter.

Argonaut (from this morning):

Let's all have a good laugh when they claim to have "met guidance" in 2 1/2 months' time.
