We are excited about the ongoing ramp up of low cost gold and nickel production at SLM’s Beta Hunt Mine in Western Australia. We will work hard with SLM management to ramp up gold into full production, expected to reach over 50koz on an annualized basis by the end of 2016, and aggressively advance the significant exploration potential. With this transaction completed, we look forward to now pushing forward on the acquisition of VMS Ventures, which was announced on February 1st along with the SLM transaction.
