Young added: "We have already completed all infill drilling of limited areas in each of the four areas where we anticipate mining to occur. This information represents the final milestone required for inclusion in our work to obtain final Russian reserves as in accordance with Russian Federation requirements to obtain the necessary approvals for mine plans, designs and schedules. 

The CEO continued: "Once all final analytical results are available, we can begin to compile the TEO, a Russian feasibility document. We are also nearing completion of conversion of a large high grade, higher net operating profit per tonne Inferred resource at Ikenskoe/Sobolevsky. 

“The upgrade to Indicated resource should enable us to enhance the production schedule and related PFS cash flow model. We anticipate further improvement of the projected NPV and IRR beyond that of our current positive results.” 

He concluded: “There is a second enhancement that could be derived with this conversion step being completed. That is by mining this during the first 10 years of production, there is added upside related to the reduced Net Profits and Metal Royalties structure for the Far East which will further benefit the project. 

“Metallurgical sample collection is also advancing and we anticipate successful completion of this year's drill objectives by mid-September."
