The Company also performed well on a unit cost basis, achieving a cash operating cost excluding royalties1 of US$2.79 per pound in Q1 2020 – a decrease of 18% over Q1 2019. Our financial position continues to remain solid with a cash balance of US$147.5 million ($204.6 million) as of April 30, 2020 and a final revenue adjustment payable of US$64.4 million due to the Company’s former off-take partner.

The Company is also evaluating the timing for the construction of the ferrovanadium conversion plant, including the deferral of planned 2020 capital expenditures due to precautionary measures associated with our employees and contractors in light of COVID-19.”
