“My computer crashed and I didn’t save my work!”
“I’ve been busy with extra-curricular activities and volunteering work”
“I’ve been so ill over the past few days, so I haven’t been able to look at the drill results”
"I tried writing the release, but I failed to understand the results"
"I was in a hurry, so I mistakenly left my laptop in my wife’s car, and now she’s in the office across town"
Or the least likely option - tell the truth:
"We don't want release the results, because they are shit. We hit nothing, the structure wasn't mineralized and we don't want to tell you as you'll abandon us like rats leaving a sinking
Quick San Acacio Time line:
- 31st October 2017 - commencement of 5,000m drill program (link)
- 28th Feb, 2018 - Identifies a Large target (link) - PDAC promo PR
- Prelim results from first 2000m of drilling - hit anomalous silver (i.e. nothing).
- Here we sit 174 days later, no results....
By my estimates, Defiance should have drilled ~3000m by now, so 60% of the program done, and no assays reported, might as well wait until the end of the program, and release a phase 1 summary PR....
