With strong cash flow generation, we will be reinvesting in the business through an increased exploration budget and development of our Panteon and Atravesada underground mines, which are expected to commence ore deliveries before the end of the third quarter of 2021 and 2022, respectively.In addition, we have started the technical work and expect to commence drilling later this quarter at our now 100%-owned Eastern Borosi Project.
