the of Markets. next comes Przybylowski question from from Capital line Jackie BMO Your

Jackie Przybylowski

very model, trying is a reported me cobalt right, serve to just the on And already. I rate? the give that's is much. back to Do ask from to would to think something to that going I'm an my Bay, can should fine tune state but run see Patrick QX On All you to thanks that you indicative idea go we a question this, be cobalt, just read wanted of steady because for you cobalt production sorry just where forward? expect that Voisey's that follow-up

Randy Smallwood

terms actually inventory because mainly have, up started No, it's to up and get in light a we build sales. and we having run rate, for our that an steady agreement warehousing our in of had own first place state systems the build agency with

we This see we've until the our So look you production guidance to run five inventory. is the mean, near working the of require four these given – of terms sales typically things overall on our in basis. year again, of to worth occur first and end a production per is, going at you I months didn't When the I way mean, actually first quarter. about

Voisey's what a sum are working we've a a a have sales. these we've what production wind Bay. we'll in our had materials, at a that inventory bit take time. mainly probably going had to less sell because from little annual some bit And it is if more what you half lump variability than – than that's up some having number, to than just So of cobalt We of of tend block other volatility or in basis

And it on is happens an have so end or depending impact. bit before quarter to going quarter after whether end of a

volatility course But estimated you of working of quarterly keep production, aside set Bay. eyes four our quarter some should production sales annual should a have sorry production I will numbers. think of inventory. your our in of we that a a about then five – the as be be numbers to would share terms of about So I about of if bit, our of annual sort months worth Voisey's out And that am I these blur annual

Gary Brown

Jackie Przybylowski

Yes.

Okay. That's that's I was what modeling. I what been really had –

that So us, you surprised positive reported on the number production I guess, the side.

really So Thanks. were on I that's Gary. Thanks, wondering if just production, but we helpful. way low was

Gary Brown

Yes.

Jackie Przybylowski

if I And maybe ask can just other question. one

Gary Brown

Of yes. course

Jackie Przybylowski

of forward from kind worked you of bit least expecting going like kind stronger my changed see a it out for in expectation on on from little I consensus QX net-net, than but gold little and the strengthen to well reverse ratio you results Your numbers at a haven't what numbers looks and it lighter like guidance. can here? and I being silver. gold your seemed was Are that still to will it And noticed as

Gary Brown

of still very bit they course, process gold important Salobo there is as taking of part Well, is and is a Salobo should. Vale though of seriously safety reset production. that very a gold in a our that's there,

in quarter, unlikely climb operating everyone production new And embraced rates. are the certain as of run first normal be to and safety so and we can't to so got amount we'll fully only these returns back The measures process to and the more tons. rate back with lower a – regular that's up made-up, capacity mills the

I gain how very our when an made we probably is, done quarter, I have benefit of us. see asset of elsewhere have as that we has that well offset. that some the one we'll and production fortunately portfolio think the not to gold diversified mean, for had Penasquito deliver it's is first it missed the week up side on in And but silver so don't we step-up

Jackie Przybylowski

Absolutely. much. Thanks That's it for me. very

Gary Brown

Jackie. you, Thank

Operator

Cosmos from next from Your comes Chiu CIBC. question

Cosmos Chiu

is and costs was per my with technological $X.XX I But first noticed Alright, made question cash we my ounce questions in Gary, Randy, for Thanks Hi. maybe QX Haytham Patrick that on it now. which and cost. $X.XX silver that higher than about difficulties. others Could due XXXX? Alexco quarter last maybe was for per the category, a to remainder of that? bit what this you should expect Is more in part ounce. we talk that’s

Randy Smallwood

want Well it? take to Gary, you

Gary Brown

from mean And I cash Yes. primary mixture. driver that's a cash certainly costs. a just the cost perspective of increase silver the it's in

a You've percentage got spot. like we're of streams also paying where Antamina,

our so prices – So production payment. as does does so spot increase,

Randy Smallwood

also and so into levels, production would where and across, also that some the combination a of contracts, other we some higher feed above. and incentives production we for of higher of those for all payments combination have and contracts have It's do it's production

Cosmos Chiu

kind Domingo, question or should to you this impact? situation up then it. make who at Got of on night Chile, I comment a the And isn't, here monitoring potential they're talking keeping you're Santo about is look quick we guess it? but higher in Would like the the on taxes, Haytham hopefully at how you maybe a

Randy Smallwood

still first, I'll in the toss this, all But do handle on word and there first if have we be one communities We the you like to likes. a add governments the profitable want. it's the of that that assets on impacts you and Yes. Haytham, focus stakeholders, for and reasons can focus and including capacity quartile. in

aspect And incredibly so of an that is investment. important our

programs at curtail said government Santo on revenues first really I raise fund isn't all curve. of The having the Wheaton it. producer. the seeing tax you respective being focusing – in what implement to and cost try we half world. try That something differentiate this think to to was terms Domingo are trying and world the it's around here alluded of that that bottom the around we to a as there they're ourselves

the this country to going investments perhaps is in more increase And other perspective. are like you again and some the so surprising Chile of or concerned – so into the seeing. it's these even versus And have make on get countries I terms in quite from Ecuador other Columbia mean, difference. something or countries used scale impact Peru we're that that of that do an we to and to attractive are going

and all do that having to still handle of So good stakeholders. really importance we operating But it's this reinforces can strong something that monitor. the again, it stuff value deliver positive margins you so like

So Haytham, you anything to that? to add want

Haytham Hodaly

No.

the nail hit head on right You the there, Randy.

I two think the the were the as is payback would Randy less time on in economics only of for is, this terms cost at on thing said I curtail asset, curtail years. a than say cost based this that

a is It's iron a this project. copper fully gold and phenomenal oxide So permanent project. ore, iron copper

If in of this look with agreement entered [indiscernible]. doing terms you at what to cost they've overall into they're reduce costs,

savings they any ForEx, So option, cost agreement rail on replace an are on pipeline iron so better. only this getting so really is project to the different with that working that
