Mike Parkin

Hi, my the off per guys. Is where like do per are is quarter that or taking Marigold a each for that that benchmark we ounce that for of this with basis and ounce, on basis? we’ve for like it trend question. kind on something we should depreciation Seabee, dropping go-forward Since Thanks seems that a stabilizing see tonnage basis. a per noticed

Stacey Pavlova

Yes. charge components, basis, our one side, overall mine has looked really to straight-line which policies the two into back done you at at Thanks, is so Mike. is accounting on Obviously, tied depreciation look – which the overall if life. PP&E the more is really broken that’s a

with success, of we’ve charge had life the because at there. that and the drop, we’ve both So Seabee seen mine extensions Marigold,

those at operations the periods. back PP&E reserve look coming how look over two gets I’d split basis at that to So, for our

done the The depletion the is, piece, is other units basis. is piece on of mineral production which part, resource a which

but bit little on because be piece, stripping that component existing a the predict, deferred decline phase-by-phase within is part depletion one amortizing that amortize cause The over three stable the again, year, smaller more proven as but pieces. reserves that’s So of And additional ounces. then and can deferred relatively more done up volatility that we’ll those challenging that a does We’ll it’s really basis. the are that the stripping to should is stay we over phase. some

Mike Parkin

good. that’s on so really, would same That’s the I And deferred say, with right. All Seabee, then basically Okay. so. strip, yes, the

that’s good. much. Okay, Thanks so

Stacey Pavlova

Thank you.


of Please ahead. from comes next The question go Cosmos CIBC. Chiu

Cosmos Chiu

Carl, on Greg, we’ll course, Trenton Canyon, on Marigold here. some come Paul, of year-end bit to like, hear when but Good by out potentially first find resources on when Buffalo wondering Buffalo inferred Kevin, you and likely Trenton plan? new mine see off the I’m might could we acquisitions into detail detail more that Thank Johnny. these Maybe, just or Valley, Canyon more and come find and they a bit Hill, – a maybe

Paul Benson

that one. the I’ll thanks, the we’re focus about. work that the that’s answer Yes. – on what and had. talking confirmatory on QA-QC resource really Cosmos. is We moment at the Newmont and

We expect into to And inferred we we’re when moment. do that’s doing early next see some now come work that really of year. the the the there at resource update

Next of that we’ll year, at would do deeper see the any play to higher-grade next up we we’ll fund discovery yes, chasing that it satellite sort to actually program We’ve there sulfides, are next start to – see the and the Because oxide one but will then got there, targeting the will have exploration be can study levels, brought proved we and out any operation, couple year. operation, the also fund Marigold over years. start – a work. two exploration do to what into the to how of

there targets position by there and the the and ground. We’re really find excited land continue more. doubled to are already hopefully we’ll we We’ve know

Cosmos Chiu

now Canyon them may able Dot walk EIS the is that walking running? and for you the of to other expansion here. including what process back my of sort getting the this but need again, of facilities. include early, again, Red you Buffalo permits It’s And terms you’re positive question were then through a some me to associated huge too But to in Trenton potentially could maybe, we acquisitions, and permit if of leads get next us through Marigold up that and that of two Valley the other the

Paul Benson


application a one generalization, Nevada. in As you than permit time can’t any simple have one more in at

Around back Valmy. the same time, we started bought that So, we XXXX. process in

that. included So, in wasn’t Valmy

the mine So, Marigold we’re Record now that Decision – we on have property. of

whether Buffalo are we what We Valley. of best way decide we the are how that, with process Once we we to obviously terms Trenton will do the inform can planning next amalgamate a the on Canyon Valmy process decided forward and – market running. going we we through in –

is ground there thing Trenton that able is important The drill just already. and we’re there to a Canyon,

So held decisions. our don’t mining delaying that we it isn’t of so by it, see up impacting any

Cosmos Chiu

And by Marigold XXXX increased noticed your for I Pusher. $XX CapEx sustaining then for at million.

scheduled XXXX. that That into now it’s for for did you’re to This just I’ve XX of going big rope million be this bring million a This was it. in. to million site loader the mention but be loading, high those one hydraulic You because for XX – hydraulic XX in that an entire for that bit on the Is XXXX, addition to right? shovels again, hydraulic seems seen loader? brought terms isn’t to is

Stacey Pavlova

I’ll pass it Kevin. over to Yes.

Cosmos Chiu

Kevin. Hi,

Kevin O’Kane

in our Thanks, Hi. hydraulic existing between large Cosmos. shovel it’s size and hydraulic rope a halfway is It about shovel. and the shovels

So, a large it is shovel.

Paul Benson

bigger a we the as last sense reason there’s go. have big just there fleet a to give this then more one the hydraulics to and issue the increase cost. The we’ll will had haulage analysis do begin to you Oroco, didn’t year is we talked was it size need said it about shovel, ready available also mining it. what that with a whether that existing one significantly at optimization rope year well us we flexibility We This And lower at is it happens the in to significantly study. and than bit made looked and it brought

time. So, the XX-month avoids it waiting

– So, able we that. to it to get be was were lucky

Cosmos Chiu

on my Yes, your a of noticed course. quite you’ve investors. a bit from as that gears switching I end X.X% well here. I and Maybe, SilverCrest, maintained little interest question get in bit that’s a

of now current might it. investment? place? have if money you And that of right us agreements thinking or of kind on remind So can terms Paul, standstill your you’ve good what’s you in any Clearly, reconfirm in maybe, made that

I all team, good Paul That’s Great. very a have, congrats here. and and financial on quarter

Paul Benson

Thanks very much, Cosmos.


next The ahead. Please Chris of PI question go Financial. Thompson from comes

Chris Thompson

questions. Good my really, thanks a really for good taking quarter, morning, guys. Congratulations and on

think we has of of a answers. a received lot asked lot I Cosmos Thank Cosmos. you, them and

I ones. a couple of So, have additional

you bump question, the one and really grades nice through Seabee if parts, could walk two us wonder Marigold. in I at theme. same So,

sustainable Specifically, for month? near-term envisaged – in by Marigold way are plan each the mine the sorry, they of by way the of

Paul Benson

significant the the Seabee, but variation I the to is mined quarter, With about We’ve Kevin I’ll average I’ll or and area year talk the there that mined with we less ore to think obviously Seabee X.X. – of beginning more grade body, that the line let model. Marigold. the was talk was across in that at the in

unexpected So, back to grade we to indicated we’ve expect reserve schedule, rating closer according much on was not to very Marigold? come QX our and that Kevin

Kevin O’Kane

I Marigold, it at mean the Seabee. again as terms in not as large as is – Marigold absolute mean I Yes, just at variability

in call, the in forward, be to we going grade. the fourth As quarter in grades reserve the going of the indicated neighborhood and the we’re

that’s expect. so what should you And

Chris Thompson

great. lead way just balance that if specifically, Okay, moving wonder and of to a just zinc? over question, for you Puna. us sort Thank the update I by between guess, then I a plant final just optimization, you I of and guess

Paul Benson

a Zinc the product run concentrate. Yes. the with and the there. as silver silver plant production minor to the lead predominantly goes is We maximize

So, any everything much Kevin, is other product. driven so silver very around maximizing comment? the the is value,

Kevin O’Kane

plant And we highest we see the first, material the so our way, value run combination. is from that recovery, that value great way the not silver-lead first stockpile, the highest which with that we highest feed the the only do plant but

Chris Thompson

All right.

you are guess do the lead it should the way – and saw QX zinc expect moving we we So, forward? of of a by grades think I representative what

Kevin O’Kane


Chris Thompson

All you right, much. guys. Perfect. Thank very

Kevin O’Kane

and well. And different has to byproduct zinc the variation that’s shipped cons, produce can other in time, the only lead separately credits, in say going con, the con I is, get so they a which was you as two in that and get thing terms silver of we why

Chris Thompson

All guys. Thank right, very you much.
