September 30, 2010 Ore production started at the Silver Strand mine in the second quarter of 2010 but was suspended due to low metallurgical recovery in the concentrate leach plant. While management expects that it can solve the metallurgical problems with Silver Strand ore, no production will be possible for the remainder of the operating season.
June 30, 2007 Development of infrastructure began during the quarter. Mining plans are to develop infrastructure, drive a new adit, and mine a reserve block above the main adit level in 2007. Drilling plans are to test geophysical anomalies which were found in 2004.
