The company has reiterated that its key focus at this point is evaluating the underground mining project which it hopes will offer the possibility to return to cash generation in the near-term.

The resumed drilling program is evaluating the depth extension of the Kavanagh load and the Nugent ore load which were identified during the 2019 drill program.
