Shareholders to decide Stillwater Mining's fate

 BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) -- Shareholders in Montana's largest publicly-owned
company are scheduled to gather in Nye Thursday to decide whether dissident investors
 including former Gov. Brian Schweitzer should take control of Stillwater Mining.
   Schweitzer and the Clinton Group, a New York hedge fund, charge that mismanagement
 by board members and Chief Executive Officer Frank McAllister has put more
 than 1,600 Stillwater jobs at risk.
   McAllister counters that Schweitzer's group wants to take over Stillwater on
the cheap as the company is poised to expand production at its Montana platinum
and palladium mines. The Clinton group controls roughly 1 percent of Stillwater
stock.
   Analyst John Bridges with J.P. Morgan says the best outcome for shareholders
would be a compromise that retains at least some current board members given their
 knowledge of precious metals mining.
