DeePee: Ungrateful Sterling Sacks DeMotte

Yeah, Dave, Ray DeMotte’s sacking (over the weekend) by Sterling Mining Co. as their president. The guy gave his life the past 10 years to Sterling Mining Co., and the past 5 years to renovating and reopening the Sunshine Mine. Thanks to Ray and the fine crew of people he put together, Sunshine is back in silver production. In the process he is largely responsible for the renewed economic vigour here in Shoshone County. He got shivved by an ungrateful and hugely short-sighted board of directors. I don’t think the last dog is hung on this thing, and the Sunshine now has a momentum all its own, but I can’t see anything but negatives for Sterling Mining. It was a daft, dumb, ungrateful move by, as usual, a handful of greedheads/DeePee.
