At Shafter, 600-700 tpd is expected for the first quarter and perhaps 1-2 months in to second quarter, but on a sidenote we can mention that 1,000 tons in one day were mined recently (not processed) at a grade of 8 oz/t, so improvements are ongoing. Once the filter presses are installed and tuned in, production will increse. Production will gradually expand until full capacity is reached by year-end (1,500 tpd).


1500 tpd by year end?

Are we going to have to wait a full year?

Was that the original schedule?
