Construction of the processing plant laboratory is underway. We expect to have it completed in the next 10 days. The laboratory on site will streamline the time and expense of running samples of the mineral back and forth daily to the laboratory in the city of Arequipa. As I have indicated previously in order to offer our highly profitable processing services to local mines we must have the ability to test the samples prior to pre-purchasing the mineral from the miners. Having a laboratory on site achieves this goal.
Construction of an onsite office and sleep facility is underway at the mine and will also be completed in the next 10 days. This will allow GHM to meet with vendors on site as well as providing management, consultants and crew sleeping quarters on site cutting down the travel time from the city to the mine significantly.
