The positive progress with our potential partners highlights the quality of the project at Talisman where high grades allow for considerable flexibility as compared to many junior gold mining companies. The company continues to complete the precursor work to our bulk sampling/trial mining phase at Talisman and we are on schedule for commencement of the project during the second half of 2014.”
