Within our portfolio of assets, we have lower cost sources of production, such as the high-grade breccia pipe

which contains previously reported resources totaling 16.
The drill hole intersected the targeted breccia pipe
structure at a depth of 122 m and was stopped temporarily, still in mineralisation, at 170 m, Assays taken on 1 m-long core samples indicate mineralisation for the whole 44m section from 123 m to 170 m, with values averaging 4.
