We enjoyed additional exploration success this quarter with further resource delineation at Zgounder and the completion of airborne geophysical surveys on Zgounder Regional, Boumadine and Imiter bis. Considerable progress was also made on the Zgounder Expansion Project with the on-schedule delivery of the FEED, the first of our construction milestones,” said Benoit La Salle, President and CEO.
