One of the most impressive underground mines he has ever been to. Have haulage systems, automation, which is incredible. Was skeptical last year they would be able to get tonnage up to their target. They have beaten all their target levels. Doing a really good job. Underground reserve grade is about 2.7 grams per ton, which for an open pit would be spectacular, so this is one of the lower grades for an underground mine.

A big portion of their assets are in Russia. Because of what is going on, he doesn’t have any inclination to go down this path. Embargoes going back and forth between countries, could impact this company.
