We look forward to bringing our regional expertise to generate long-term value for our shareholders. Our immediate goal is to verify all historical data to prepare a current mineral resource estimate, drill high priority exploration targets, and further define regional targets. The transition process has already begun, and we look forward to building on the successes achieved by SSR Mining.”

Management plans to invest $1.8 million for drilling and exploration activities to verify the historical data and define a current resource in 2022.
