Yaramoko has delivered yet another strong quarter, surpassing five million hours worked lost time injury free and achieving a record quarterly processing throughput for the second consecutive quarter as a result of ongoing optimisation at the plant. With 76,280 ounces of gold produced in the first half of 2018, we are well positioned to achieve the upper end of our 2018 guidance range to produce between 120,000 and 130,000 for the full year.  Also during the quarter, we continued to make good progress on the construction at Bagassi South, our second high-grade underground gold mine, which continues to be on track for delivery of first ore expected in the fourth quarter later this year.
