the company expects mining activity in 2016 to be comparable to 2015. operational enhancements continue as the company explores further opportunities to improve performance, manage grades and reduce unit production costs. as soft rock milled continues to decline, increasing mill capacity for the processing of hard rock is a main priority.
small-scale hard rock miners do not have the luxury of a fully equipped industrial-grade mill with flotation and cyanide leaching to process their ore and recover values. we are usually limited by practicality, finances and permitting to a simple crushing and grinding circuit, with a gravity recovery system for the free milling values and value-containing sulfides.

mining benches vary from 5m to 10m, and are excavated in passes (flitches) of about 2.5m to 3m per flitch. gold mineralisation is mined selectively to cut-off grades, and segregated into grade ranges to balance the ore production and processing capacities onsite and to maximise cash-flow from operations.
