In the quarter, we achieved record silver equivalent process grades of 874 grams per tonne and recoveries of 98.3%, while completing planned maintenance ahead of schedule and returning plant availability to 92% in March.

"Strong performance of bullion prices in the quarter contributed to a 4% increase in our bullion holdings, to end the quarter at $20.0 million . As expected a significant cash payment for 2023 taxes and duties was completed, bringing total treasury assets 2 to $91.1 million at the end of the quarter. We look forward to providing more details of our operational and financial performance in mid May."
