ANGLICKÁ VERZIA


Austrálska uránová firma Forte Energy NL (FTE), ktorá sa podľa informácie uverejnenej v piatok minulý týždeň má stať novým vlastníkom Ludoviky Energy, a teda aj práv na prieskum slovenských uránových ložísk Jahodná-Kurišková a Novoveská Huta, má svoje akcie vedené na londýnskej burze LSE. Na stránke tejto burzy ( http://www.lse.co.uk/SharePrice.asp?shareprice=FTE ) je po zaregistrovaní možné zapojiť sa aj do diskusie akcionárov.

My sme túto možnosť dnes využili a v diskusii sme súčasným akcionárom, ako aj prípadným budúcim záujemcom o rýchle zbohatnutie prostredníctvom uránu z Jahodnej, jasne dali najavo, že sú tu maximálne nevítaní a že ťažbu a spracovanie uránu v Košiciach nechceme! Naše komentáre v diskusii nevydržali dlho - "niekto" sa postaral o to, že naše diskusné príspevky boli do 2 hodín vymazané (a naše konto zablokované). Možno aj vďaka nim však hodnota akcie FTE počas dnešného dňa klesla z 0.48 na 0.42, pričom denné minimum bolo 0.39.

Ak bude možnosť, diskusné príspevky budeme na stránku akcií FTE pridávať aj naďalej (a samozrejme - ak sa niekto chce pridať a napísať akcionárom FTE po anglicky pár "teplých slov" o tom ako sa všetci "tešíme" na ich uránovú baňu, môže tak urobiť tiež).


Toto bol náš hlavný komentár:

-----------------

Hello to all from Kosice, Slovakia - the city closest to the Jahodna-Kuriskova uranium deposit, i.e. the "pig in a poke" that FTE has just purchased or is about to purchase from EUU. To most of you uranium mining in Slovakia is probably only a way how to earn some money via FTE shares but to us, local people, it is a threat and a danger to our lives, our health and our environment. Therefore I'd like to make you familiar with a few facts, which are very likely unknown to you:

1. The idea of eventual uranium mining in the hills of Jahodna, which are located only some 6 km away from Kosice, in a recreational area and very close to 2 out of 3 sources of drinking water for the city, is extremely unpopular among local inhabitants. The only people who support this dirty business are local corrupt politicians, hoping to get thick bribes from the mining company (and even they have to be very careful of what they say or do because they're risking they won't get elected the next time). As somebody has pointed out in this discussion already, the freshly elected president of Slovakia Andrej Kiska (taking the office on 15 June) has declared that he, too, is against uranium mining and will do all that he can to establish a moratorium on uranium mining in our country.


2. There have been several public protests against uranium mining in the past and others are planned to take place in future. The most notable one was the largest-ever environmental petition that has taken place in Slovakia so far ( http://www.greenpeace.org/international/en/news/Blogs/nuclear-reaction/113488-say-no-to-uranium-mining-in-slovakia/blog/11347/). The campaign - supported by Greenpeace - forced the Slovak national parliament in 2010 to change the geological and mining laws so that an approval by local municipalities is required before any uranium mining can take place. Also there is European legislation (e.g. the Aarhus Convention) which requires public consent for this kind of mining projects - fortunately for us, Slovakia is in Europe, i.e. it is no Africa (where it might be sufficient to bribe a very few local leaders to get a mining approval) and local people have their rights and their opinion must be respected.

3. The uranium deposit Jahodna-Kuriskova itself is by far not as economically viable as both EUU and FTE try to present to their shareholders. The pre-feasibility study that was made by TetraTech for EUU (at the time the company's name was Tournigan Energy) a couple of years ago calculated with much higher uranium prices than today's ones. The truth is that Jahodna-Kuriskova is a marginal uranium deposit whose underground mining would be an economical suicide for the company who would attempt it (and an ecological disaster for the city of Kosice and its neighbourhoods).

Conclusion:
I strongly recommend everybody to get rid of shares of any company that is counting on making profit from uranium mining in Kosice or in Slovakia in general. The probability that he/she will lose the money is much higher than the opposite. And besides, there is also the moral part of the problem - I believe that not everyone of the shareholders is a wicked b.st.rd who would donate his/her money to a company whose activity would ruin local people's lives, health and environment. The uranium mining business in Kosice is a black and filthy one and any money coming from it - besides being unlikely - would be black and filthy, too. I can assure you that we, the local people, will do everything possible and impossible to prevent uranium mining so close to our homes!
