that so ultimately, block wouldn't be is Yeah, the can would with is side. XX for but underground to related XX there's tell expansion us, we for within long cave expansion potential potential there that Phase we that be of actually does throughput to I in think, still even to you I reserves -- of any, the years But front open believe of personally term be pit mean, there. to I reserves related that are operations the that open Salobo of expansion going the any Salobo X I that just blockade plus have doubt pit plus no operations, exist, got

open And And pit open X so, I related part very think very, it'll second question. pit sorry, time. of And to production. Phase is then, be an long a the for

Gary Brown

that it’s reiterate, one-time to collect Vale to have just Yeah, payment. option expansion and

or time. X. of their it the increases it’s collect payment decreases X as so And course, reserve with Phase it to but to end of with the scale, end at of The the choice phase

on the at we they fully to expect it's, the X. that satisfy end phase option be the so once And completion test of onetime exercising phase, them

Ralph Profiti

got now. Much I clearer it.

So, from date, yeah, to And It back will which haven't is clarified very, going upper but production of very that in because a last there year. we tenure it's made down to happening can’t no, back be is dates now. like yes, looks right the to that production. issues payments soon yet the been It bit And some in currently process. is I date get to zone, be had

And that Haytham. production so, once the that go ‘ has payments of inventory will of a up over Sorry, bit built get time, we ahead. an made.

Haytham Hodaly

back. date Xst, July

Randy Smallwood

July Xst. Yeah.

to So, Xst. July date back

nice you look history the about think go. little new excited that is not management coming it's is good that it'll Marmato. We're potential for a a reason like achieve the of bump. is then projects that really all drilling we project, to where being where a results But dethrones. project there lower at was with when actually there. geological takes the The the at long build companies that's the it not And in, reason team So, be this. can in look And and Marmato, that able from

about excited pretty we're that so, And project.

Haytham Hodaly

debt, we those make July Cosmos, sure for foreclosed not built chewed you're up QX any built not production a both are XXXX to back once We've Marmato. even And just yet, production accrues to made. in will have though payments Xst. aware. Nor We've be it in any

Cosmos Chiu

yes, that entire follow-on QX, it's to Cozamin, was well. terms my when made also that's production the coming so Okay, you've see in going as Cozamin be and maybe QX we likely -- but because in for Marmato in question that payment slightly so already, QX of both actually higher Marmato

Randy Smallwood

do can we're all question T's prepped dotted. that As long that anticipate I tell getting I's the of a to as payment, you make just final crossed, It's we we payment. do make

Cozamin yes. weeks and that long as as few So so of as accrued as not it's next Xst, the is happens long. December in And

Cosmos Chiu

think But think again, in sort of you two terms XXXX it's factored of I And assets can huge, here, that have I us? that or how MD&A. don't that share For don't Randy. these guidance then, with from the in in, But saw sure. is much something I you

Randy Smallwood

we Those announced are deep Marmato acquisition Marmato. it. include did get Randy certainly that is to in. to. that we small, we did We zone, in until as alluded both -- that the December, Cozamin factored very Again, had

Capstone be included but further in would grow approach. XXXX, though, do maybe can use on a not will we production. in XXXX. certainly We did that I tell So you, think conservative

So, guidance. is upside our in and year in there we current think But sure five for guidance. the XX it there's

underway that production Cozamin the and definitely initiatives number improve will got of Some there. Capstone's

couple years. So, and coming to we expect of next the that over see

Cosmos Chiu

timing? And in at of potential could us of deep terms zone Randy, you the remind Marmato, the timing

Randy Smallwood

have Haytham, line, it's think on you the you're XXXX. But I do that?

Haytham Hodaly

bet. you Yeah,

I think early it XXXX, expected the is is late XXXX, timing.

Cosmos Chiu

that here, Great. I'm And seeing November XXXX. Hill Keno stream another maybe commissioning in then the mills started

is given from Just startup And should we start the to the expecting your and that timing and knowledge, stream? then going? when concentrate how contribution whatnot,

Randy Smallwood

mainly through. of November, wave because was a was little sort bit So, COVID management. the second a of October, challenged, there risk came startup

for definitely first little start-up And protocols, that the challenging successful That’s high them then management that them there and risk concentrate restrictions, for up terms were get so, staff increase made bit it in getting an in getting there more running that But production in shipped were and making it for they to smoothly. us off. challenging a maintaining definitely gets sure they of that safely, was it a in made through. and

of and that wave, for And out be They impressive grades we terms it bit very some to to underground. will speed. seem so, this of up of lighten very, the we're that are out hopeful good, things getting in as second full a getting Electrico up coming

from fully things that very should And and coming getting front. we that But closer look be do expect production the full they promising so, to spring, levels. closer so,

Patrick Drouin

Yes.

starting production reason start have in we any for quarter. production But in Cosmos, in don't So, Keno a you'll first see didn't first the crude any probably a we why I Hill. book XXXX quarter. to production the wouldn't see

Cosmos Chiu

see a reverse COVID-XX Great. of sales going production. didn't to of like exceeding of that in that producers quarter? year, really versus that point Thanks, in terms this in question maybe in In usually, Any kind in this insight Is production Patrick. there guess And any in at when I time? might impact. later QX due XXXX sales insight catch-up of QX to terms to QX, be then we one here. it maybe more QX,

Randy Smallwood

sold. a numbers second because yet quarter average the the first third in off But expansions the sorry, the right, of to of of not Well, we it second odd in where normal of and we quarter the in places some year, into on are not last far had expect quarterly an some produce but basis. a and you're quarter places, quarter – and effect too into bit part

always And so, sales experience year get to to where because it try is the that inventory end results. of pushed, It's and the we do our one been expect squeezes normalize. the boost sort pipeline everyone the fourth quarter

the for usually typically see reasons we one that's that's incentive And that in the why it. so, the do of quarter. And fourth

just a not now, hazard again, So, we I quarter normal close levels, right that, make would something to probably we get like a Right. again, which think once a yearend pretty going until that continual guess to sort I to be the the it's see incentive back look results to we the little better fourth probably, of objective, Cosmos, that bit is are

Cosmos Chiu
