Bush diary in the wilds of Canada: Today Matt presented to the Sprott conference. The presentation was extremely well received, the second photo shows the all investors holding back to ask questions (even though free drinks were being served outside). Extremely well presented and well received presentation, we had conversations with investors for the next hour and half. We have spoken with at least half a dozen Ardea shareholders today, the first day of the conference has been a success. It was a very proud Ardea moment when Matt presented today!
