Your first question today Langton. from comes Tyler

Tyler Langton

start, helping But I was you of and to then the of offsetting you're mentioned I kind details how Marigold it any on items what might for talk Puna on of just touched of of seeing FX and guess that Seabee, guess sort and sort sort or guess, the if Copler. and well. just more a terms how I pressures I and you that bit much? could be inflation little guess I have hedges as offsetting you're at you know I in And inflation about, contracts

Alison White

Thanks Alison. question. for the This is

helped as at Marigold, inflation and we part to and stated, sort Turkey really So Stu at through are Copler we're within Seabee continuous inflation organization, has yes, working to an us we hedges do and active we we the see the do have currency the inflation process. on of have continue in activities that devaluation. and offsetting to terms meaningful business for as reevaluating and do that program on organization, if have we not Puna of offsetting hedge And the And really the touched and then improvement we much where will that do in that. -- those are that's constantly

Tyler Langton

don't for below I my there I the of guess, annualized sort the little numbers, looks then up for guess know half? was to there in sort the and I second waiting then the for was I with And year, be it and about if And circuit that tailings. some the then, MD&A, the related a just full CapEx of all, sustaining helpful. of but Stage growth versus the CapEx should the pick I details that's think in any like of permits guess for X CapEx sort kind would flotation Copler, also mention at

Rodney Antal

had we get But are final and know I'll for long impacting to been country about flotation them permits permits, we to just that a yes, and needs. look, I'll waiting of the the process record pass the soon. Alison always some the permits signature we able final at Stu awaiting Copler and their the our for to push of governments then things We've the now doesn't success in getting touch of to circuit. Clearly, and been get past. questions. are specifically expect It's other on the track always the and are -- done. we equate first, Covid the we've perverse with over when permit talk to them in more while But definitely

So come shortly. here that should pretty

So just about I'll Stu other Alison on it. let and the questions, talk

Alison White

that what what I'll we're on planning you or do that were what Tyler, will have. CapEx we as anticipating we year questions spend. we anticipating the touch And continues for originally spend the we will are we anticipate and

So maybe look a bit progresses. the to that little as see uptick year

Stewart Beckman

we've I it covered think pretty much Tyler. off,

that So work expectation the tied we well everything plant that we incoming as any spend flotation that. for the exploration The out of now, won't our planned. is and capital. we'll of capital we've we're ticked all finalizing think and the We surprises get


Your CIBC. Chiu from Cosmos comes next with question

Cosmos Chiu

the my a already off, some the of to runs like get on question Maybe sounds sense. a delay. very want and Copler also you've on on my here it first is water QX. permitting. been It commissioning First the like But started I a also question I right guess, congrats work strong parts. X flotation. at sounds just there's #X, is

that as would And could terms So what when And the about start we the now with in X a worried a in tailings terms been right there's slight talk is when X you should maybe Stage need well. you said, you about the of And Could then Stage capacity? still X? needed? of talk part timing? getting tailings, you delay second capacity Stage bit permittings as capacity are

Rodney Antal

over pass to Stu. going that one to I'm

that was like, parts X question. I there So think, to

-- sure make So

Stewart Beckman

to plant. flotation regards the With

get have the update Copler. after which EIA an And for for of waiting to a normally are We that, operating the takes weeks the EIA. couple of permit, then we

Our now ministerial the is bureaucratic through and understanding, we EIA passed the that office. processes of believe with the department all has

Like being the long. we and down for just not then Covid. So the hope closed had too we've -- holiday, holidays. And Muharram is religious everything it's everywhere, big

sort everything stopped. much pretty of So

up coming So back we're to that. speed people of for waiting out to get

So a process. come hopefully, soon. mitigation it will We're putting

that got. even dealing in we're blends best the with the can a we've at the that -- in that with that And we we way we into didn't we've material make guidance believe So permit. stretch, us of the get we'll front got it if that

that was And pretty coming of very was It the What other it confident we're be So will long. part we get there. hope. we'll your soon, question?

Cosmos Chiu

Sorry, questions or I'll X. X keep to my next

Stewart Beckman

the Yes, with to tailings. regards

[indiscernible] stage So requirements the this I'd check of piece land of my notes, by. we've that's it's which about required. got phase. a the and required for all have get And think small we XX that's I to next at in require And next August it's not somewhere stage. go there's but the to that, --

we're to time. to going well what So ensure We're always in front obviously got busy. we've need. We're those those in good working that of get we

Cosmos Chiu

capacity And Stu, when now? I the from you my tailings Stage of would guess coming the right you question do was much need how capacity other part X? have And

Stewart Beckman

of us, -- we're the tailings, building front well ahead. I and As said, building we're not we're we're Cosmos, until into XXXX, in a long way constantly --

Cosmos Chiu

you is well Could noticed little a talk a you your my to it bit. XX.XX was on X. as first it sounds is, surprise quarter head much gram part of if was model? the that block to grade gears And Coming about, at the was Lower the it was, -- Seabee. positive how Santoy it? like part per was grade reconciliation that how X to it positive positive switching of tonne. I Maybe in guess, And grade that back is, sustainable? I the spectacular question

Stewart Beckman


very and in it not we was get time was to very in It just mine. at had mine. positive, on from a the positive edge We do that bottom these time resource. area, So the in the the but reconciliation the of

will be But be the how finish yet drilling. in current much out drilling positive out probably that will in will extend reserve. what's get because and it that next your So question, don't is until we we to beyond know we're we the that

it, areas out were we've put to mining more get were another a into Generally, putting do in gaining holes that access So we're now to And came drive that some But stock -- but get and it. a a in to putting year. and then we're grams back putting we're in more gain a over XX there now drive already drive -- in few tonne. some drilling at next grade. to spectacular that into

Cosmos Chiu

the maybe And the on potential could Seabee comment for second for not half at grade you this or time?

Stewart Beckman

want I speculate. don't No, to

Cosmos Chiu

last And maybe were good. grades here. one Again, Marigold question then on QX

First potentially we to XX%. heap it I on second tricky half about in should with if expect first that, it's half What half? then grades always believe, were looks were recovery out, for like And good. leaches. was work I Well the the

If well? you that as are recovery expecting the second could potentially lower grades impact half, in

Stewart Beckman


right about the You're recoveries.

moment So heaps various at the we're of running X lengths.

So the we're from. days, which leaching from stacking range X anywhere depending to breakthroughs XX and heap

So -- the for grade for half overall, will be as but same the it half. was the first this

Cosmos Chiu

And maybe up. that's it horse, of inflation. don't I the dead and seems but word question last effort the want beat new a 'I' to these then kind to to be new wrap days one

energy Is we What on some of cost there's terms comment pressures; the impact seeing operations inflation, you maybe labor, input potential cost? cost of currency different companies. It different pressures some about labor? Could at from other talking Is also about? areas? cost you it talked cost pressures. costs, there's are We've energy, heard it other offsetting like most are you What here? In the your pressures; inflation. seems there's

Alison White

that. cost continuing about have some will the same seeing to have are we talked reevaluate pressures we be that of to necessarily So not relation diesel. we but some in experienced labor others pressures And

renegotiating our at Some our cyanide things the other sites. actually of few input we a currently for and costs, of of process in are

of the inflationary companies So we our that have some some same of other are not seeing. pressures experienced


Habib Your with next question Ovais from comes Scotiabank.

Ovais Habib

just quarter. seeing of kind and A see of you're been any already, at Congrats you're Turkey, just Covid Copler wanted factors putting that that on very to lot regards maybe in solid but mitigation in my impact have to answered questions of in place? a any sort

Stewart Beckman

has for Copler shelf effort there. outstanding good an managing very actually it. as Turkey systems done anyone And been in that's the well

an site. have coming isolation process We on

medical testing turnaround So a own staff we an and test. for immediate coming site, our also have test almost people with antibody PCR to in

we despite then still a in site. before and PCR for immunized antibodies carry and If across the and on protocol running you clear, get they're and they're site you retest both enough back workforce go fact can immediately. you the access that that site, the you're Otherwise, XX% on quarantine you contractors the you week,

done outstanding So have very it well. there managed they've really effort an and

Ovais Habib

to think of at of in in based the going is Seabee you grade Copler would on I going pushing the And the half, produce of conservative ounces, be Marigold kind how that second does Marigold, what kind of being over you're you XXX,XXX your and And top expect level? and looking about I why to looking about perform above ounces. that to say, over flotation get before If going, of kind kind second kind the mean, say, XXX,XXX just of said towards end close into Seabee unfolding. guidance Copler you hit achieving just let's some is half. these date, I of how flattish, is to you causes to, it's Is see terms how do outperformance good gets guidance? is guidance start things talking

Rodney Antal

No, the tracking sort Puna we're and have we're said top. is larger first script, And as Marigold guidance. translate shown towards half, that it in of think operations, both go well more for going I necessarily Copler, in to through certainly the which while Seabee doesn't the we So, the and the mid-quarter

give at of we'll range out. be reassess obviously, out that So us if stage, then put this But quarter positive again to some it. that in guidance surprises, we we'll saying X sort that we're turns originally

Ovais Habib

on -- side. into the exploration moving just And

we're expecting confidence resources the mine Seabee? a month at of reserves additional near kind and in exploration, in improving of couple and next looking Is terms updates at so. over focus still satellite beds You that Rod's exploration or said of the

Yes. It's both.
