The Company has embarked on a significant phase of its development project, initiating soil studies in collaboration with Construterra S.A.S.

Key aspects of the soil studies include:

In addition to the soil studies, the Company will conduct pilot drilling, scheduled to commence on or around May 28 2024, and will involve drilling a minimum of 170 linear meters of surface drilling in diameter HQ3, at an angle of -8º. The purpose of this drilling is to understand the soil conditions of the decline to be developed for the coal bulk sampling program and to guide future decline development.

Simultaneously, Geominas SA has completed work on the platform for the project, including final topography and earthmoving activities. Preparation works have also begun at the proposed portal area, laying the groundwork for drilling and eventual construction of the portal for the decline development.
