where towards that ore You've pit potential there got assays Is any a being source? a open pending. couple are thoughts

Kevin O'Kane

go would my up up you'd of these comment, most I'll fairly relatively steep general some strip end you with increase end relatively be a narrow tend and to -- ratio with or the -- quickly.

But, I that view? nothing out something worked. outcropping has think with your mineralization but sort it's ever we've few Carl, of a different about there, talked

Carl Edmunds

narrow around there. open a vein. plus, and pit, It’s It’s any there’s for unsuitable really water surface

Kevin O'Kane

if ways. bit downer come you a That those near always of Seabee at is up a

open the So, pit difficult. can make it really

Mike Parkin

Buffalo down mine? of Okay. there and than -- terms the for packages royalty different the the Canyon And Valley, new the of win paying at moving you're Trenton then, Marigold, are on oxide in what rates

Kevin O'Kane

they an on done have just I'm to ask what DeCooman update significantly there. to John lower. Yes, going give

John DeCooman

Yeah. third differ different the are, X% call in on of see they're Marigold X% Mike, sort area. of of there, that you they some sections depends are at but to from a probably close they what Macky the it to general anywhere

Mike Parkin


others I'll ask All let some me. it that's So, for right. some very guys. question. great much, That's Thanks news.

John DeCooman

you. Thank


Please Thompson Our question comes next ahead. PI with Financial. from go Chris

Chris Thompson

for guys. Hey. the week. future notes. my morning, earlier obviously, your All announcement, Congratulations just best having Alacer the at Paul, there. helm. on great taking Thanks the Good with you been questions. for this quick It's endeavors

results. couple guess a questions of quick as as Just far I these

a stacked obviously, put are this mention, You to half at high the Marigold do grades second Can year. of to you in number that? be going

Paul Benson

at off that moment. costs that the going comfortable the on about just only for you with given year. I of we’ve but if No. royalty Obviously, impacts because keeps otherwise the haven't on is guidance I guidance mean, Marigold forecast thing there the the what the been we we've that that Marigold at gold includes think our can at price cash changed we're probably beginning got so run

Chris Thompson

Sure. the of Carl, comment can All upon And question that. a with Turquoise you Trenton Canyon. of mineralization great see possible and that you on Thanks from and Turquoise. Ridge. similarities expand in maybe I you. the And, wonder similarities right. news reference release that to I is if you that mean metallurgical for maybe make sort results this with just for

Carl Edmunds

these with the are intercepts lower we at plate Turquoise get what it, Well, we is up did that information we think down know change rocks work we're think a that just have Ridge. Formation host only near we on Ridge meters what And just occurring. area we approximately where albeit seeing above Relay drilling we lithological this from RC into Comus -- here, core the the we that XXX

nature being that pyrite this variably from that's of what is the we're we which the pulled RC we're are come I in all chips. units are out solidified into are -- fine-grained going Comus. of seeing above and types as what the seeing. Valmy-looking more understand is stones, rock rock the now what mud And that So But more very carbonaceous then mineralization

the got grades similarities present it's it's -- So we've high are at some pretty sulfide. that and interesting-looking

some that and realgar, I orpiment that at the minerals we would in other of stratigraphy. soon would future in. differences where follow grade can We're that we interested core say of the we seeing any part Some as the but yet in in the some not with as fits as And is be that. we're it. the seeing to other see may more we're least detail not be really provide up it those of exotic seeing we'll to some in think we're which holes in able -- the

Paul Benson

points When other the were could we’ve got of where on couple on a drill. restricted we package land that. Just of we

in was have on the where drilling the lot of and disturbed We a go first we want So land. permits the half to. drill now to

be will great. that So,

a The hole, core X.X kilometers. first was long hall

going trying for then back. We're as a is that looking really, the all haven't lithology. of to understand Rosetta you’re like sort We structures assays the seismic Think trying to of down what interpret lithology. and of to stone got do the there. extrapolating And

want always We've to said you is of But going more expect be So we sort this yeah, to that can years. long-term or a game. five capital with success million. to budget this spending allocate always year be the money initial to -- is it. four We’d $X

a there. it's story good So down

Chris Thompson

guys. stuff, Congratulations. Good No.

Paul Benson

build Obviously one Turkey. it's throw and across just material technology there. sort Alacer do that come of over just the I thing would if that's that refractory, in we successfully in

Chris Thompson

That's thinking. exactly what Absolutely. I was

Paul Benson


Next question.


comes Michael question with ahead. Our Instructions] Please Agentis [Operator Capital. next Gray go from

Michael Gray

kind I Congratulations Carver couldn’t My the holes you calling And for is Carl just call. actually in Trenton right on section wondering, asking, on team, can my tell resist questions have looks But or or Paul the really here got of of wish on it Thanks rest in just deal. being the well, lozenge of and taking and sure shape. they question results. cross I'm Comus. and been terms right it's I answered your discordant it.
