"We have overcome difficult times and used the time wisely to lay the
foundation for the success we have now. I would like to take this
opportunity of thanking all our employees for their dedicated work and
our shareholders for their continuous support as well as patience. Now
it is time to reap the benefits of our hard work while global tungsten
prices are at 4 year highs with APT Price recently breaking through
US$350/MTU, further enhanced by current foreign exchange rates
(CAD$460/MTU). The days of cheap tungsten are long gone and we've
entered new territory now. Improved market conditions are being realized
in the results for the business and we look forward to sharing our
results with the financial community in August 2018."
