At Rupice we will declare a maiden resource estimate in the first half of this year. Also, metallurgical, geo- technical and hydro-geological studies are underway, which will feed into a scoping study, the exploitation permit application and ultimately a feasibility study. We look forward to a busy, and successful 2019.”
