PLS and GAM made the deal and now MIN does not like it. Is it childish or perhaps contrived to scare the retail holders into selling? Aggressive behavior is perhaps the opener for some larger intentions. This will become very interesting now the massive potential is seen by investors following the DFS I am a PLS shareholder

MIN continues to show itself as the bully has has always been perceived as. Fact is they won't get what they want and if they wish to join in the Lithiun party they should rethink their tactics. Shame on management. If I was a shareholder in MIN I would be asking some serious questions about if this is where I want my companies resources going, ie lawyers fees

In this article it fails to mention MIN allegedly did not take up the offer to meet with PLS on the redrafted Sales Notice. They only issued a letter in response to PLS' requests for a reply by letter and for a meeting. MIN mention the fact of the offer to meet in their announcement which is odd, why mention it? If PLS refused to meet MIN then MIM could have context to mention offer of meeting. That is why I allege MIN are playing "hall of mirrors" for some other reason....
