We would like to commend front-line responders, essential workers, and the Indigenous, municipal, territorial, and federal governments for their efforts to resolve this very challenging situation and all residents who have been displaced for their tenacity and resilience during this difficult time. We are delighted to resume what has been a highly successful exploration program to date.”
