my see it’s just kind and then, you And not terms is, in, good. I’m a know, the you but it it’s at how that here. trying report, Copler you up know, But of early right technical question plan figure great discovery top. down next you’re is know, fit CX, this the to of compared now, you maybe know, master out Clearly bit to, to, porphyry out in late fits clearly, to know, kind you the CX too it of, deposit more year. you’ve now, I you and Sounds a know, getting guess you epithermal But last know, made in, the you yet. the different, of in does put sort

infrastructure. it in so going have sounds to me, you’re like And to to put some

based However, know, place. you in could potentially me help you together on infrastructure in Could of today? of try you know, and how this kind in some you fits you it said, know, already terms piece kind as to in what Stew, fit of, there’s

Rod Antal

the the full Because Stew really around on for have Ardich of the tech settle Copler that in Maybe just and contribute value more other and we it. very a that we’re just was a clear particular, come. Copler to I In also still I’ll the the let and have full that for pursue there’ll that pit. asset potential so it year, of and highlighting did think this But be other start out put drilling report number around the point the also within we’ll terms Copler around targets make last of the we – constraints question.

So of discovered beginning the the CX obviously, it the really the story as then, was for that on backside And well. Copler. just of we new

it’s agnostic view definitely of gold value But, you for it’s the discoveries because exciting. the the discovery Stew? shareholders. know, a to terms porphyry buck my you whether know, of, in I’m you for and best or and best a So, bang that’s it’s grind, know, gold-copper whether our only, is time

Stew Beckman


I maybe So could it. just how help to about think you

the standalone So would about that as porphyry carry potentially its know, porphyry, deposit, we own which should, thinking you infrastructure. a we’re

That and to do at each as said, of cutbacks, on up concentrator, test the epithermal contact we’re of the currently undertaking. typical a contacts, the the we work more pick that’s we if, would expect know, gold. the that the you So,

there into know plant is, might opportunity the have the have And to typical the and things copper, may you or for a been concentrate, looking that the, like whether also going at gold more make the is the in of after you areas us lower one sulfide we laboratory we copper that which be be any for and forward. the We not of look whether that concentrate. very gold high know, recover suitable para they

know, typical But volume those fashion, the cheerful if you into got opportunities. out, the enough length, you we length if you holes know, know, strike that where get that the know, bottom we’ve the look the pulled porphyry. first So, grade you we sit of at they of lots the of can of and the, and you in in

the porphyry stand it’ll know, well in discoveries world. against other You

Cosmos Chiu

really copper a it really, is split you’ve gold? And basis. here mentioned, on you between know, you that drill as it copper equivalent behind here? Is then, you grade, remind the And the you and know, what’s out, they on Great. put me, copper-driven? economics know, Stew, are intercepts the the Could you

Stew Beckman

this we gold the four gold-driven It’s two-thirds that value, about stage sold. holes in for first at

Cosmos Chiu


I guess equivalent so Okay, a I grade? because you wondering, just was copper out why you, it put know, do as

Stew Beckman

typically how at that’s look people porphyries. Because

Cosmos Chiu


Stew Beckman

it trying So help to to do against to to able our something porphyries. were understand people be it we write to

Cosmos Chiu

you. – Got the then And

Stew Beckman

copper with you lower that with porphyry grades. thing, know, – other a a the As tend volume, to larger be

see So, a you throughput of facility. rather Copler current lower larger, you of generally the that would development mean a fitting higher the know, a know, concentrator larger the the sort tonnes grade, porphyry you

going I forward, development jumbos and improvement the to started they of we’ve talking know, end Seabee far this work at that that The doing continuous up. say, has consistently to rates. things of have got at implement looking the and a at before, movement in of implementing of rates about that in. for this Marigold, you lateral year, at place out getting sort And, move at moved was ahead year same couple type lateral the us well you be this I to coming we’re stabilization, So of year, rates know, people sort beginning the what of lateral haven’t of for – last will plan

the of, piece. continuous sort that’s again, So that’s improvement foundational

that longer-lived. piece other bit little is a The we’re doing

years of And believes four it of sort a the four or know, always we’ll in life You has have that of front XX or next life it. or is five five years. XX years project for XX front Seabee that in or everybody

to maybe to fully tranche develop bring to bring then to our we some mill it the we be, resource. mineralization money other – more forward up next horizon effort along the continue will of has focus we bit exploration, time the exploit what and the into that bit, a lift be the and and to invest can a can put manage how do, to able building and some be at able we little meet least and other The question on. However, mine in of capacity and

way sort some to know, piece a better pretty you lift you change can real opportunity. lot work paradigm know, and a There’s be do for that go good chance you that you And do horizon faster we’re longer-term innovation. and, improvement, the we there’s know a that of sort the what immediate, to is and whether achievable, got the of work believe doing that’s but the out So then going Seabee. half at we to of that’s

part of with it, NCIB forward. like as available share move promising the definitely piece into it And, buyback the, using know, strategy the our tools considerations So I’m of program tools, that’s at closely us. not we these moving price know, current for a quarters, for you key obviously, but more overall we’ll an you definitely look becomes share weakness, definitely

recognize it’s the potential So strength through cash do just all, recognize cycles. trying the flow you it of recognize growth really the the business, know, and to the generation
