Financial Highlights for the Second Quarter 2010 compared to First Quarter 2010
Grade Increase Initiative
The underground mining at Bjorkdal is susceptible to dilution from waste rock due to over-breakage during blasting. To improve grade by reducing dilution, a technique known as cable bolting was tested to stabilize the walls of a stope prior to blasting. Initial results are highly encouraging and indicate a significant reduction in over-breakage. The Company will continue to optimize this technique in other areas of the mine.
Cost Reducing Initiatives
Management at the Bjorkdal mine has reviewed the costs associated with contractors employed on site and several changes to reduce costs were made in the last few months. Tenders for tunnelling and underground ore haulage have recently been requested and several pieces of large equipment have been ordered to commence some in-house mining. The Company has adopted a business plan to transition towards an owner-operator business model and become less reliant on contractor services. These new initiatives will have a positive impact on production costs in the months ahead.
