Rockgate President Karl Kottmeier commented, "We recently held the kick-off meeting at DRA''s head office in Johannesburg and I am pleased that we have selected such a professional and well respected company to conduct this important study. Our policy of front-end loading on engineering studies to date has allowed us to embark on a full pre-feasibility study. We are confident that the results of the study will provide us with a very robust statement of the future viability of the project and a number of options for us to choose from when we design the process route and the operational size of a potential mine at Falea. I am also very happy to have Bryan Hyde directing the study process as his wealth of experience will be of tremendous value to Rockgate shareholders."
