COVID-19 in Nevada

On 1 April 2020 the State of Nevada implemented a stay at home policy other than for essential businesses, reporting to work as an essential worker, and to participate in outdoor activities so long as aggressive social distancing is practised. As of the date of this announcement, Mining (including drilling operations) falls into the essential business category and strict protocols have been implemented by the State for all mining/drilling activities to manage the COVID-19 risk.

The health and safety of the Company’s employees and contractors is of paramount importance and strict procedures will be implemented for the drilling in line with the State of Nevada protocols. The Company continues to closely monitor the developments regarding COVID-19 and any changes which may affect the drilling will be announced accordingly.
