Mr. Bullock: Well, it's basically investors who are essentially buying a call on the gold price. So raising capital through private placements in the market means raising the money to explore and move the project forward. So investors looking to buy a company like a Volta which is a development company as opposed to strictly exploration – are those with interest in buying stock in a company that's eventually going to try and build a mine and create value that way by producing gold. We've already found the gold.
TWST: So the major part of your growth strategy for Volta is to build mines eventually?
Mr. Bullock: Absolutely. And that's how we differ from a lot of exploration companies who will discover something and then put their arms up and say, "we've gone as far as we can, we're for sale now." We can take things from discovery or acquisition right through development and into production, which is what we plan to do.
TWST: How far ahead do you expect the actual building of mines to occur? Is that dependent on the underlying stock price?
Mr. Bullock: We'll be finalizing a full feasibility, bankable feasibility study, by the middle of next year. Then, we'll have to go for project financing.
