Update on Castelo de Sonhos
The two RC rigs and one core rig are currently drilling at Castelo de Sonhos. We have approximately 20,000m of drilling planned in the current 2021 program, the majority of which is exploration. The current impact of the pandemic is that we are seeing slower assay turnaround from the laboratories, and international travel restrictions make it challenging to bring international experts to the site. This should not affect our exploration activity drilling the new artificial intelligence generated targets, but if it continues could cause a delay in the pre-feasibility.
