The Northern Vertex team continued to exceed expectations with numerous production records including the completion of key capital projects such as the powerline connection and west pit pioneering. Through an ambitious exploration program that is underway, we continue to see significant opportunity to expand the resource through the drill-bit, with the rapid advancement of the Phase I, 18,000-meter drill program.  With the success we have seen with Phase I exploration results, the Northern Vertex Board recently approved a 30,000 meter Phase II drill program, and Northern Vertex will be providing updates on the near-mine, infill and generative exploration results in the coming months."

The proportion of total ore being sourced from the east pit continues to increase as operations transition out of the center pit, while pioneering in the west pit is nearly completed. During the three months ended September 30, 2020 a new processing record was established of 683,706 tonnes crushed at an average gold grade of 0.69g/t.  In addition, a record total of 13,083 Au ounces and 119,257 Ag ounces were produced. Finally, the Moss team advanced numerous important capital projects during the quarter: Construction of a 6.9 mile power line, resulting in the mine being switched over to grid power from generator power with power costs moving from 31 cents per kilowatt hour to 8 cents per kilowatt hour, Construction and commissioned an Intermediate Leach System, which accelerates gold recoveries from the heap leach pad, 80% complete test work on increasing grind size, which could increase throughput rates and/or reduce costs, Pioneering the new west pit, which was more than 80% complete at September 30, Completed 35,000 feet of infill and exploration drilling, which is expected to lead to a resource update and revised mine plan.
