“The Platosa optimization program is nearing completion,” stated Brendan Cahill, President and Chief Executive Officer. “With each additional submersible pump we are increasing the local rate of drawdown at Platosa resulting in drier mining conditions day-by-day and the results continue to confirm or exceed our projections. Essential well cleaning was largely completed during Q1 and we are now in position to install submersibles more rapidly. We remain on track for a dry mine by the end of Q2.”

"During the quarter we continued to focus our efforts on reserve replacement and populating the resource triangle with new targets," said Paul Harbidge, Senior Vice-President, Exploration. "I am encouraged with the positive results that we are seeing from our portfolio of projects as well as the generative studies which are laying the foundation for future exploration success. We are well positioned to meet our targeted 20% increase in reserves over the next five years."
Jim Williams, Chief Executive Officer of Arian commented: “It is helpful to have come to a conclusion on the Noche Buena tailings project. In drawing a line under this project, we can focus on our lithium interests where we see the greatest upside potential. We expect to announce the first set of assay results from our recently acquired lithium projects imminently, and a preliminary technical report is scheduled to be completed soon thereafter.
Mike England, president of Alix, stated: "We are very pleased with the results from the first drill hole and the drill progress to date the Agua Fria lithium clay targets. With an international team of Canadian, Australian and Mexican personnel, the objective is to discover lithium-rich clay deposits similar in grade and size to that of the Bacanora/REM La Ventana deposit."
"We are very encouraged with the overall results of the initial exploration drill program between the San Luis workings and Elena Tolosa, and due to the success of the program, we are pleased to have extended it. The results support the continuation of the extensive Avino Vein system, and continue to demonstrate that this is a new gold rich area that has been untouched in the past," David Wolfin - President & CEO Avino Silver & Gold Mines Ltd.
