The last 12 months have been transformational for the Company as we have transitioned ourselves through construction, development, commissioning, production ramp up and now finally into commercial production. Shortly, the Company will be providing guidance to the market on key production and financial indicators for the remainder of fiscal 2013, now that commercial production has been attained.
