President Michael G. Allen stated, "Recently the Moss mine has been begun to process ore coming from the East Pit, which is higher grade than what we have been recently mining.

Our new interpretation of mineralization in the West Pit has begun to bear fruit with several long intercepts of gold mineralization received in this quarter."
