Mr. Quartermain's talk will discuss how Pretivm is creating value through gold at its 100%-owned, underground Brucejack Project in northern British Columbia, one of the highest-grade undeveloped gold projects in the world. Since discovery of the Valley of the Kings in 2011, the project has advanced rapidly. The Federal and Provincial Environmental Permits have been received and Pretivm is targeting commercial production to commence in 2017.
