As quoted in the press release:

In support of the Prefeasibility Study, the Corporation has completed a significant amount of metallurgical test work on all aspects of the flow sheet. The bulk of this testing has focused on confirming historical test work from the 1970s on the same deposit and evaluating potential improvements in processing technology. Testing performed during the 1970s primarily focused on a test pit located in Area 1, whereas the current test program covers both Area 1 and Area 2 where it is expected that the life of the anticipated mining operations will occur.

… Work on the permitting front continues on schedule. Numerous environmental surveys have been advanced over the last several months to provide the baseline assessments required to submit permit applications later this year. Surveys include assessment of wildlife, soil, vegetation, air, water and cultural resources. The full slate of field programs is targeted to deliver a comprehensive analysis of the local environment and is anticipated to meet all regulatory rules and requirements. Many of the surveys are complete, with a few scheduled to conclude mid-to-late fall 2013. The Corporation anticipates filing its Large Mining Permit Application by the end of 2013.
