What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?

Risks of permit timing. We have created an internal permitting group, well acquainted with the Japanese permitting system, who has been successful in obtaining permits for Japan Gold in the past.
There are operational risks related to the procurement of services, equipment and manpower. To manage these risks, Japan Gold has built its own Operational team fully capable of generating and advancing the Japan Gold projects.
In addition, the company has acquired four diamond core drill rigs and has brought expert support personnel into the country to support our drilling programs. This allows the company to define its own operating schedule while keeping costs at a globally competitive level.
