2,600 tonnes per day was expected - the reality is 3,000 tonnes per day at the mill, so that's where we need to update the numbers to current production rates.
Xstrata's scraping the edges of Perseverance because there is no more ore, and they are going through the process of shutting everything down. Yes the official close date is a bit of a moving target, but it's not like Bracemac-McLeod where it's open around the deposits for finding more production.
Donner already had 25,000 tonnes stockpiled on surface back in December, ready for the mill. Ron Tessier is the VP of Engineering - he is the same guy who brought Perseverance into production ahead of schedule and within the original budget, and now he's working for Donner.
