As a result, there is increased uncertainty and economic risk of failure associated with these production activities.  Hunt is presently preparing an updated NI 43-101 Technical Report ("Technical Report") for the Martha property.  It is anticipated that this Technical Report will be published in Q3 2018.   

Donald J, Birak, an independent consulting geologist and Registered Member of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration, and Qualified Person, as defined by Canadian National Instrument 43-101, has approved the scientific and technical and details of this press release.
