- Shafter is producing at 600-700 tpd now. The reason for not acheiving higher rates is because they need a filter press. This part has been ordered and is expected in december and AUN is counting on having it operational at the end of the year. They are expecting 1500tpd production early next year. 

- They are expecting to declare commercial production at Shafter in about 4 weeks.
