Outlook for the coming quarters 

Metanor continues to develop new drifts to the west in the Hewfran sector at the Bachelor Mine where the planned grade is higher than the actual grade.  Metanor will continue the diamond drilling underground in the coming months to eventually add new resources and reserves at the Bachelor Mine.  Also, surface drilling will continue around the Bachelor mine, mainly south.
