As underground development at the Atravesada deposit progresses we are pleased with 2021 drill results and believe there is good potential for additional resources that will contribute toward development of new reserves. We are also encouraged by results of recent drilling below the Tigra open pit, which indicate good potential for additional resource growth. Finally, results of first pass drilling at the new portal vein target located approximately five kilometres northwest of the Limon open pit again demonstrate the potential for continued discoveries to help drive production and extend mine life.”
