I am even more pleased to report that this accomplishes one of the corporate objectives we consider necessary to position Bellhaven as the investment vehicle of choice for investors examining investment options for gold and copper.”
“Further, while the sector has been decimated over the past two-plus years, I could not be more positive about the outlook for Bellhaven. The current low commodity price environment presents challenges, but also opportunities that would otherwise not be available to us. We, at Bellhaven, are meeting these challenges and taking steps to maximize the opportunities for the benefit of all our stakeholders. We look forward to report back to you as these opportunities are realized.”
