PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP were re-appointed auditors of the Company with a 98.03 % vote of approval.  The Advisory Vote on Executive Compensation was also passed with a 68.50% vote of approval.

During the Annual General Meeting, Mr. O'Rourke presented the Company's updated presentation and fielded questions.  Mr. O'Rourke noted that the mill had successfully completed the planned major maintenance job in late April ahead of schedule and that the mill averaged 43,500 tpd throughput during the month of May.  May production was reported as 7.2 million pounds of copper, 2,600 ounces of gold and 25,000 ounces of silver.  Mr. O'Rourke indicated that mining activities also continued to operate well above plan and averaged 197,500 tpd moved during the month of May.

Mr. O'Rourke also provided an update on exploration activities that were announced in early May and are now well underway with two diamond drill rigs drilling at the mine.  Mr. O'Rourke noted that the exploration program has a three-pronged approach: 1. Drilling in the Eastern end of Pit 2 to test the deeper mineralization, 2. Drilling the Western end of Pit 2 expanding the ultimate pit westward, and 3. Infill drilling of the saddle area South West of Pit 2. Mr. O'Rourke commented: "the mine provides a solid base for future growth for all stakeholders and exploration at the site has historically been very successful.  With the strengthening copper price, the Company is very comfortable reinvesting in our large land package for future growth".
