VP Corporate Development Don Willoughby tells, “The assay results are great. We continue to get economic grades over good widths. The objective of the program is twofold. One is to expand the deposit, and the other is to upgrade from inferred to indicated the saprolitic layer from surface down to, on average, 50 metres. This is in preparation for completing a preliminary economic assessment. We’ve started the baseline work on that; we’ve started work on an environmental impact study. That’ll be done probably by sometime in the new year. We’ve just begun it, so we don’t really have a timetable for it yet. We’re informed that we’ll have the updated resource estimate by sometime in the latter part of 1Q 2012.
