And we thank them for their steadfast, ongoing belief in the Company’s purpose and people who work to create shareholder value. Dave and Laurie have been instrumental in securing the immense value potential Carolina Rush now has across its three past-producing gold and copper projects in South Carolina and North Carolina, especially at our flagship Brewer gold-copper project where we intend to resume drilling soon. Dave and Laurie will each remain active as strategic advisors to the Company for the forseeable future, and I am personally grateful to each of them for their respective wisdom, guidance and solidarity over the past 8 years I have known and worked with them.”
