When the engineering reports are complete and reviewed by the appropriate government bodies, the Company will make an application for reinstatement of its Free Miner Certificate to allow continuation of its exploration activities. Until then, the Company’s focus and objective will continue to be the resolution of the orders of the Mines Inspection Branch to address the current concerns about tailings facilities. The Company is of the view that the timelines for resolution of the matters are realistic and expects to complete the necessary work within those timelines.”
