Where is the Nexus?
Here is a question for your news team: can Nexus minerals put a propectus out offering shares at 2.5cents and then when the share prices goes up ,say that it was at the directors discretion, leaving 300 approx share holders with nothing, and that certain brokers will be distributing the shares as they see fit?
I would like to know the brokers and who purchased most of the shares, I have a hunch it could be some of the directors.Would this have happened, had the share price stayed at 4 cents. I'm sure you will have a lot of upset share holders who in dec 99 voted to allow this to happen.
