Reader Rebuttal (January 01, 2002)
Fan of CMJ
I have enjoyed reading CMJ for many years now and as a matter of fact I find myself reading it cover to cover as soon as I receive it. Also, it gets a place in our reference library where is has become a valuable research resource.
These are trying times in our industry and many of us have had to learn a lot of new skills and get our minds around new issues, especially those relating to the myriad facets of social permitting in order to advance projects. Anyway, I find CMJ a breath of fresh air and congratulate you on the good work you have been doing and the magazine’s support of the mining industry.

Too Many Suits
This is a message from an old miner.
One of the biggest problems with the Canadian mining industry is too many suits and not enough hard hats. Let’s hope that the exploration money raised by the new tax breaks actually gets to the site, not like in the Eighties, when most of the money was gone, or wasted, before a hole was drilled.
