This was the strongest quarter of production this year and the Company is on track to meet its annual production guidance of approximately 75-80,000 ounces of gold for 2017. Development at our Hermes project remains on schedule and on budget and we anticipate production commencing by 2018. The contribution of the mineralized material from Hermes is expected to allow us to reach our objective of increasing annual production to 100,000 ounces of gold."
