Ken Berry, President and CEO of Northern Vertex Mining, stated, "During the quarter, earnings from operations, excluding depreciation and depletion of US$2.4 million represents a significant improvement from the previous quarter. The production of 2135 gold ounces and 9702 silver ounces in March set a new monthly record and new gold production highs are expected to continue during the months ahead as operational improvements are implemented and take hold. This was evident in April's production results at the Moss Mine as the number of gold and silver ounces increased to 2247 and 12 885, respectively."
Highlights: financial results for the three months ended 31 March 2019
- Earnings from mine operations, excluding depreciation and depletion, was US$2.40 million for the quarter ended 31 March 2019.

- Cash was US$6.30 million at 31 March 2019, compared to US$5.72 million at 30 June 2018. The increase was primarily due to cash received from financings and operating income, offset by repayment of debt and interest payments.
