Guidance is maintained at 325,000 – 350,000 gold ounces sold for the year.” He added: “The SART plant produced its first copper precipitate, on schedule, in late June. The operations team has taken over from the commissioning team and will now take the SART plant to full production. Growth activities continued through the quarter with development and exploration drilling at the Sub-Sill. In-fill drilling in Media Luna continues and the updated technical report on the ELG Mine and the Media Luna project is on schedule to be completed in late July / early August. We all look forward to the second half of 2018 and the many catalysts that are expected to demonstrate the company building potential of the Morelos Gold Property.”
