"In addition to the continued advancement of our conceptual engineering study, we also remain focussed on the resource development and expansion of the project. We have a conceptual exploration target of an additional 900,000 tonnes which, if converted to resources through further exploration work, could bring the project's total resource base to over 1.50m tonnes."
