During Q1, a total of 78,016 tonnes were milled at an average grade of 2.22 g/t gold and 21 g/t silver resulting in the production of 5,195 gold equivalent ounces. Mill recoveries averaged 86.6% for gold and 53.8% for silver. Equivalent gold ounce calculation is based on the actual daily average gold:silver ratio of 74.92 during the quarter.
