The previous EIA and TSP approvals, and now this most recent approval of the Mining Right, were the subjects of intensive and thorough interaction with the Armenian authorities, local communities, members of civil society, and others. Thank you to all who participated in this process. We look forward to a long working relationship within Armenia as this project progresses into construction and production. Lydian intends that Amulsar will become an exemplary mining and investment project in Armenia, beneficial both for the country and for our investors.
