Mr. James Vogan of SRL further commented, "SRL personnel have completed the Fencemaker mine site reclamation work and are now securing the property and equipment in preparation for SMD's arrival. Furthermore, the final approval of the Fencemaker Plan of Operations is being coordinated with the U.S. Bureau of Land management (BLM), with an update expected shortly.
