The boiler is currently undergoing testing and the Company expects it to be in operation by the end of this week.

"Once fully operational, we can immediately restart stripping gold from carbon and expect to pour gold early next week. In the interim, we have continued to circulate solution through the carbon columns to generate a backlog of gold."
