"Our balance sheet remained strong throughout the quarter with approximately $35 million in cash on hand as at June 30, 2017, as we continued to invest the majority of the cash flow from operations into advancing our high-grade, low cost Ana Paula Project in Guerrero, Mexico. With the recently announced CAD$50 million equity financing expected to close on or about July 20, 2017, our balance sheet will be further strengthened, allowing us to continue to advance the development at Ana Paula, including completion of a definitive feasibility study, change of land use permitting, surface exploration drilling and development of an underground decline for exploration below the proposed open pit."
