"With regard to the exploration plans that we reported on in the last quarter, the development of the manto discovered in the northwest part of the mine has commenced and has contributed to the quarterly production, as well as increasing the proven and probable reserves. The well being drilled in the eastern part of the mine was concluded and the ramp being developed to access the positive drill holes is ongoing."

"We are pleased with how the mine has been improving its performance in the last quarters, reflecting a more stable production that has resulted in positive cash flow and profit for the company."
