Not too sure which stocks are exporting but PDN is one who stands to benefit bigtime with their South African Venture. PDN is well worth looking at. I think you'll find there's no one else in Australia. Most are Canadian Companies when I researched PDN awhile ago. This is only one of several stocks that decided to keep a portion of as I think they are destined for big things. Own PDN shares. PDYOR before buying.

Nothing yet on Gallop's keynote address today at which the media expected him to announce the election date.As I posted earlier on the SMM thread Gallop has said that he intends to maintain the ban on uranium mining in Western Australia and make it an issue in the election.

In the meantime it seems he doesn't see any votes in Latham.(from News.com.au)


Gallop offers Latham well-wishes

January 14, 2005


WESTERN Australia's Premier Geoff Gallop has grudgingly wished Mark Latham well in his battle with pancreatitis - while again distancing his upcoming election campaign from the ailing Federal Labor leader.


Again pressed for a comment on Mr Latham's troubles yesterday morning, Dr. Gallop continued his stance that the WA ballot would be fought on local issues, and reiterated he did not need a federal personality to hold his hand.


Having been accused of disloyalty towards Mr Latham by WA opposition leader Colin Barnett yesterday morning, the Premier did offer his well-wishes to Mr Latham, although the were far from hearty.


"I hope that anyone in Australia who is ill gets better, and that applies to Mark Latham obviously," Dr. Gallop said.


The WA Premier is due to deliver a keynote speech today, where he is expected to outline his Government's achievements in its first term and the strategy to win a second.

There is a half page article in today's Australian Financial Review on Gallop's keynote address.No mention of policy on uranium mining.

"West Australian Premier Geoff Gallop has tried to shed his image of a tax bogeyman by apologising for having broken an election promise on taxes and pledging further tax cuts providing the state's stellar economic growth continues.

But he also admitted in a pre-election policy speech on Friday that he had erred in lifting taxes when the State's economy was booming in 2003.

Dr Gallop is expected to gauge reaction to his speech before his announcement during the week of an election date widely expected to be February 19."
