- Complete the feasibility study for the Stage 1 Bunyu graphite project development;
- Continue development funding negotiations, obtain project development approvals, advance offtake and cooperation agreements into binding agreements, enter into engineering and construction agreements and other material contracts for the Stage 1 development; and

Positive initial product feedback was received from CNBMGM and final results from the test work program are expected to be received in the coming weeks.
