A preliminary plan to restart the mine has been developed, and will be under consideration for implementation, at such time when the economics of mining improve. In the interim, a comprehensive review of exploration is being completed, and additional exploration consisting of MMI soil sampling, geological mapping and diamond drilling is being planned.
