It agreed to let Magellan Gold Corporation start toll-milling operations at SDA because the completion was now deemed ‘imminent’ and because a commercial opportunity had arisen for the project – it is now treating 100 tons of third party ore per day.

As a result of the interim deal, Magellan agreed to place the US$900,000 total cash consideration for SDA into escrow.
