    Potential investors should also be aware that, under Ch.11 protection, S/H's are now represented before the court by an Equity Share-Holders' Committee, an almost unheard-of precedent-setting development in B/K court. This company's past has been beset by characters of dubious intent, but correcting this has been the Committee's highest priority. This is evolving, even as we speak...

    Mr. Romboy, we need to talk. The current Copper King situation is a highly dynamic environment, and I'm concerned that you haven't been presented with all of the facts. In the spirit of full disclosure, I'm a private share-holder, and I've seen sufficient evidence to convince me that this will move forward to become a significant mining concern. Your readers should be aware that the "penny-stocks" (or "Pinks") markets are fraught with disinformation and misdirection, and from countless sources.

    I've been deeply involved with this company for well-over a year, and will be the first to admit that its "checkered" past should raise concerns. The SEC allegations appear to be well-grounded and, by the response on share-holder forums, the prosecution is supported by the investors. What is most notableis that all parties named in the SEC action are "long-gone". To the best of my knowledge, Mark Dotson (founder, ex-CEO) still remains as a fellow share-holder, but none of the named parties exert any influence on the future of the company.
