The Cerros Del Sur operation is the principal operation of Clavo Rico Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.
Production for the first two fiscal quarters (from January 1, 2016 through June 30, 2016) was 2,927 oz. (gold equivalent was calculated using the June 30, 2016 closing price for Gold of $1330.60 and Silver of $19.18), while physical shipments and sales through that same period were 2,638 oz.

Clavo Rico Ltd.’s principal mining operations in Honduras, Central America operate via a majority-owned subsidiary having positive revenue and significant resources. Its mining concessions include several historical underground operations dating back to the early Mayan and Spanish occupation.
Since merging with this operation in October 2015, the Company has secured additional acreage and embarked on a drilling program designed to develop a resource analysis and profile the reserves. Core samples are being delivered to an independent lab in Reno, Nevada for evaluation.
